SCOTLAND PORTUGAL CASABLANCA CADIZ ITERRAN ;, ry TURKEY BEIRUT ISRAEL HISTORY OF THE USS ANTARES (AKS-33) The USS ANTARES (AKS-33) was converted from the former merchant ship SS NAMPA VICTORY. She was built in 1944 at Portland, Oregon, served during World War II in many parts of the world and was laid up in the maritime reserve fleet after the war. In 1952, she was converted to a Navy fleet cargo ship ( AK) by the Maryland Drydock Company in Baltimore, Md. The ANTARES was commissioned in Baltimore on 12 February 1952. Her first Navy cargo-carrying duty was to Argentia, Newfoundland in June of 1952. In August 1953. she made her first Mediterranean voyage to replenish ships of the fleet. Originally she transferred her cargo to units of the fleet in port. During the Suez crisis, she demonstrated her ability to transfer cargo underway, as well as in port. As an AK, the ANTARES had many interesting assignments. In the fall of 1955. she was engaged in hurri- cane relief work, hauling supplies to the U. S. Army and the Red Cross in Belize, British Honduras. On 1 March 1958 at Gibraltar, the ANTARES ' most famous passenger came aboard. ' NICKY ' . Nicky is a barbary ape who was being shipped from Gibraltar to the Memphis Zoo. On the 26th of Julv 1958 at Castleamare, [taly, a deep-diving submarine or bathyscaph was loaded aboard the ANTARES. The TRIESTE was designed and built by the noted Swiss scientist, August Piccard to be used in exploring the ocean at great depths. On the 3rd of September 1958, the ANTARES departed from Norfolk. Virginia for Portsmouth, England with the HMS SPRAT aboard, as well as the SPRAT ' S officers and men. The SPRAT is a 5-man submarine de- veloped by the British which was used in cooperation with the U. S. Navy in harbor defense work. During 1958, the ANTARES spent 233 days out of her homeport. Norfolk, Virginia, being engaged in four logistic replenishments of the Sixth Fleet. During the year, 18 European ports were visited. Because of her speed and excellent material condition, the ANTARES was selected to be converted from an AK (fleet cargo ship) to an AKS (general stores issue ship). This vast modification was to include doubling the size of her officer and crew accomodations, installing bins, improving stowage facilities, installing new quick- opening hatch covers, elevators and increased office space. The ANTARES went to the Norfolk Ship Yard from March to June 1959 for much of this work. After leaving the shipyard and loading, the ANTARES underwent refresher training at Guantanamo Bay. Cuba in August 1959. She then returned to Norfolk for more conversion and final loading for the September 1959 trip to the Mediterranean. On 28 September 1959, the ANTARES deployed to the Mediterranean with a resupply for the USS ALTAIR (AKS-32) with expectations of participating in underway replenishment. During this cruise, the ANTARES demonstrated her AKS capabilities in fine style. Upon returning to the states in November, the ANTARES again entered the Norfolk Navy Ship Yard to complete her conversion to an AKS. In January 1960. she left the yard to begin loading for the next job ahead On 15 February, the ANTARES departed for the Mediterranean and relieved the USS ALTAIR (AKS-32) on 28 February 1960, as the on-station AKS for the Sixth Fleet. Thus the ANTARES began a cruise of superior per- formance and record-breaking supply support efficiency. From February to September 1960, the ANTARES participated in seven (LOG-REPS) with an average net supply replenishment effectiveness in excess of 99V. The ANTARES visited excellent liberty ports throughout the Mediterranean cruise. On 3 September 1960, the sister ship, USS ALTAIR (AKS-32) relieved the ANTARES as the Sixth Fleet on-station AKS and the ANTARES headed North for the N.A.T.O. exercises, FALLEX-60. The first stop was Portsmouth England, where the Officers and men of the ANTARES enjoyed unusually fine weather and grac- ious English hospitality. Much to the sadness of many, the ANTARES moved on farther North, past Eng- land, past Ireland, through rough seas and dismal weather toward Iceland. Finally another liberty port was made. The Firth of Clyde and Glasgow. Scotland. After making another stop of two days in the Clyde- Estuary the ANTARES made her last liberty port of the cruise: Hamburg, Germany. After an outstanding liberty visit in Hamburg for seven days, the ANTARES finally headed back to the long departed home port, Norfolk, Virginia, to arrive after a successful cruise of eight months and five days duration. THE MISSION OF THE USS ANTARES (AKS-33) FOR THE MEDITERRANEAN AND FALLEX 60 The mission of the USS ANTARES (AKS-33) is to provide the highest attainable degree of supply support to vessels of the operating fleet. In addition to general stores, the ANTARES carries electrical fittings blank forms, special clothing, ship ' s parts, medical supplies, electronic parts, ship ' s store stock, clothing and small stores, packaged lubricants, and ordnance parts. The total number of items earned is slightly under 20,000. A special significance is attached to the role of the ANTARES in the Mediter- ranean as it was the only afloat stores supply ship of its type which was assigned to the Sixth Fleet. During the Mediterranean operations, the ANTARES averaged a net supply support effectiveness rate of 99 2 per cent for seven underway logistic replenishments in support of fifty to sixty ships. Upon detachment from the Sixth Fleet, the ANTARES was assigned a similar supply mission as the only AKS supporting the sixty-five United States ships engaged in the NATO, Fallex 60 exercises. A WELL DONE The following message was received upon detachment from the Sixth Fleet on 3 September 1960: YOUR SPARKLING PERFORMANCE DURING THIS ENTIRE DEPLOYMENT HAS RESULTED IN ESTABLISHING A NEW HIGH IN LOGISTIC EFFECTIVENESS STAN- DARDS FOR THE ON STATION AKS X BY THIS PRAISEWORTHY ACHIEVEMENT YOU HAVE ASSURED OPTIMUM LOGISTIC SUPPORT FOR SIXFLT X YOUR AC- COMPLISHMENTS AND ANTARES FINE REPUTATION AS A RESPONSIVE AND SMART SHIP NOTED WITH PLEASURE X WELL DONE X VADM ANDERSON. COMMANDING OFFICER USS ANTARES (AKS-33) Captain Milton A. Zimmerman has a distinguished Naval career. Commissioned Ensign in 1940, he was ordered to the USS SMITH (DD-378) in the South Pacific. It was aboard the SMITH that Captain Zimmerman won the Silver Star for an engagement with enemy Japanese forces in the battle to the northward of the Santa Cruz Islands on October 26, 1942. He was next ordered to San Francis- co, California for duty in connection with fitting out the USS OWEN (DD-536). He served aboard that destroyer until May 1944, participating in the occupation of Kwajalein and Majuro Atolls, the attacks on Truk the Satawan and Ponape raids, and the Hollandia Operation. He was then ordered to Kearney, New Jersey to assist in fitting out the USS GAINARD (DD-706). He was awarded the Bronze Star with Combat V for heroic achievement as Gunnery Officer of the USS GAINARD dur- ing operations against enemy Japanese forces in the vicinity of Okinawa, Nansei Shoto from 20 April to 23 June 1945.

CHANGE OF COMMAND AT SEA CHANGE OF COMMAND AT SEA ON 27 MARCH 1960, AN UNUSUAL OC- CURRENCE HAPPENED ABOARD A NAVAL VESSEL. A CHANGE OF COMMAND CERE- MONY WITHIN THE NAVY, EITHER ABOARD SHIP OR ON SHORE, IS NOT IN ITSELF UN- USUAL SINCE IT OCCURS QUITE FREQUENT- LY. HOWEVER, THE UNUSUAL ASPECT OF THIS CEREMONY WAS THE FACT THAT CAPTAIN M. A. ZIMMERMAN RELIEVED CAPTAIN W. C. P. BELLINGER ON BOARD THE ANTARES WHILE THE SHIP WAS UN- DERWAY PROCEEDING FROM ATHENS, GREECE TO BEIRUT, LEBANON. ALL HANDS ATTENDED THE CEREMONY WHICH WAS PRECEEDED BY A PERSONNEL INSPECTION. AFTER THE RELIEVING CEREMONY, THE CREW PRESENTED CAP- TAIN BELLINGER, AS A TOKEN OF THEIR ESTEEM, A SILVER-PLATED CHIPPING HAM- MER.

SKC 5 1 CHIEF ANTOINE CWO SINGLETON V The S-l Division is composed of the stock control section, machine records section, and the ship ' s supply section. The Stock Control Section is the actual nerve center for carrying out the Ship ' s logistic mission. It is responsible for the inventory management and control for all items carried in the fleet load aboard the ANTARES. The Fleet Load consists of approxi- mately 20,000 line items of thirteen different categories of material and is valued at 5 million dollars. -All transactions and records are processed and maintained through use of ship-board installed Electric Accounting Machines. The Machine Records Section is responsible for prosessing all fleet load transactions. This is accomplished through utilization of eight EAM (IBM) machines. One unique machine, the card-to-tape converter, converts EAM reorder cards into a punched paper teletype tape. This reorder tape is then transmitted, via the ship ' s radio, to the Naval Supply Center, Norfolk, Va., thus saving many valuable days time. Numerous other statistical studies and functions are performed through these machines. The Ship ' s Supply Section is responsible for coordination and proces- sing all requirements for ship ' s own use materials and services. It main- tains the Ship ' s Operating Target (allotment) Record and it performs common service for the Supply Department of typing, central filing, corre- spondence and maintenance of manuals, publications and many other functions necessary to keep a modern naval vessel operating. rr;y j J e ' -4 4 ••- a t: and o] found ship ' s The si hearty !

CHIEF Dl PIETRO I CWO M1CHURA DIVISION I The S-2 Division performs a large share of the work which results in the ship performing its primary mission — sup- plying the fleet. Its area of responsibility consists of receiving, stowing, issuing and managing the 18,000 indi- vidual items of supply stored in holds No. 1, No. 2, and No. 3. These holds have been converted to a warehouse layout and operation and in fact are identical to many which are found in both naval and commercial operations. The storekeepers assigned to this Division are highly qualified and competant. This factor has been made evident by the ship ' s ability to establish new records in net supply support effectiveness in supporting the SDCTH Fleet.

Thev take care of approximately two thousand items, of which most is security cargo They have the ship ' s store stock located in the number four hold and clothing items in number five hold. The storage problems are quite different from that of the rest of the ship since it is security cargo and also bulky, security cages are located in the holds. In the number four hold the candy room storage space is air-conditioned to prevent spoilage of the product. They also stow all the package lubricants and paints. There again special care and handling is required as some of this cargo is red label or dangerous. It is significant to note that this Division was able to supply the SDXTH Fleet with 100 r of its requirements for clothing items during the ship ' s six months deployment in the Med. This as well as the high effectiveness for ship ' s store stock has directiy assisted the ANTARES in performing its mission so effectively. L. TO R DELEGADO. F . SHL3; ASHLEY. M E. SHLSN; HARRIS. T.

In this Division, we find the Disbursing Clerk who computes our pay, registers our allot- ments and processes our travel claims. The Ship ' s Serviceman operates the Clothing Store and keeps the Ship ' s Store well stocked with not only the daily necessities but also the special items of foreign merchandise and other luxuries. Another service furnished by this Division is the Laundry operation. The men in this operation work long hours in closed quarters at high temperatures to provide this important service for the officers and crew. Their work has been exceptional. Finally, the Barber Shop opera- tion is another function assigned to this Division. The fine work and service performed by this Division throughout the cruise has definitely contributed to making the deployment most pleasant. A very well done is extended the S-4 Division.

Their biggest piece of machinery is the emergency diesel which is in constant readiness in case of power failure on the ship. In a way they control the climate aboard ship as the heating system and air-condi tioners also fall under their domain. When they aren ' t trying to keep us cool or warm, they take care of the diesel engines in the ship ' s boats. In addition to this floating equipment they are also responsible for the com- plete maintenance of the ship ' s three vehicles. The fueling of the vehicles and boats is also a side line with them. Our hats are off to the men who operate the auxilary equipment which plays such a vital role in a smooth operating ship. 7 taii ffOl it J day ' toi thai w Hi f L. TO R LITTLE. H G BTC: CHAPMAN. M E .

They are responsible for the ship ' s two boilers, which generates the steam for the turbines that drive the ship through the water. The 750 degree super- heated steam from these boilers can push the ship to a maximum of 21 knots. The Oil King is a member of this proud bunch of men who work deep inside the ship. His prime job is the ship ' s fuel oil, moving it from tank to tank as needed while keeping the ship trim. On refueling day, the B Division goes topside and works with the deck force in getting the fuel hoses connected and men posted at different tank stations to insure that to much does not go into one tank causing an overflow and that all tanks are filled to the desired level. Even though these men work in hundred plus degree heat their spaces are kept Dutch clean. To the men of the B Division Well Done for their excellent work per- formance. )N T ' :T - L. TO R. LEDGER.

Its area of responsibility extends from the aircraft warning lights at the top of the mast to the lights in the bilges and from the bow to the stern lights. Besides all lighting fixtures, this Division is responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of all the numerous and complex electrical fixtures, components and equipment found on board. Among these items are; the main switchboard, the intercommuni- cation switchboard, the ship ' s gyro compass, all electrical motors and the movie projector machines. This division also operates the battery charging locker and maintains our electric hand pallet jacks which are used for moving and spotting our deck cargo.

This propulsion is furnished by the main engine turbine which generates 8,500 shaft horse power capable of produc- ing a speed of 21 knots. The main engine uses steam at 750 degrees under 440 pounds pressure per square inch. In addition to the above, the M gang is also responsible for the ship ' s service generators and the evapor- ators. Consequently, the importance of this Division ' s responsibility is tremendous when it is considered that besides operating and maintaining the ship ' s main propulsion plant, they ensure that the ship has enough electricity and fresh water. Their outstanding performance of duty has enabled the ship to operate efficiently and carry out its mission without a serious breakdown for a period of eight months. In addition, the M Division ' s spaces have been and are continually outstanding in appearance. High credit is due this Division and the results of their work reflect their dedication to duty and pride in doing a job well done. I L. TO R CROOK B M. DC1. DIVISION P O; HILEMAN. P G. FA: DEWEY.

Under them comes the responsibility which is so vital to the keeping of any ship afloat, Damage Control . They maintain the Damage Control repair lockers and supervise men of other departments at General Quarters in the proper use of the equipment, make sure that all fire fighting equipment is in order and working and that the proper use of it is understood. They are our carpenters, plumbers and general handy men. When a cabinet has to be built, a shelf put up, a cleat or padeye welded to the deck or one cut off, the call goes out for the Repair Division. When men of other divisions are fixing a piece of their own equipment and need some cutting or welding performed a man from the R Division is on hand. They also have to make sure that there is enough bottled gas on board, such as oxygen, acteylene, fire extinguishing C02, not to mention foam, canisters for gas masks and special clothing for Atomic warfare. Last but not least the ship ' s wash down system used in case of Atomic attack falls under their jurisdiction. So to the Repair Division who have been doing an outstanding job without glory, but just hard work, a very well done. L TO R - FRONT ROW GRAHAM. A . SM3: HOLMES. R C . RDSN: WALTERS. M E .

The Radiomen are responsible for the thousands of mes- sages received over the ship ' s three teletype machines each month, plus the sending of all the ship ' s outgoing messages. The Signalmen have the responsibility of all incoming and outgoing messages whether by flag hoist, semaphore or signal light. The Radarmen are responsible for our surface search radar which is also used in navigation. On dark stormy or foggy nights with visibility poor, their vigilance must never falter. The Quartermasters aid the navigator in his plotting of our course and de- termining our location. They also maintain, in up-to-date condition, all of the ship ' s navigational charts. The Electronics Technicians keep all of our radio, radar, loran gear in good running order. The Hospitalmen on board are especially trained for duty on ships without doctors. They take care of all minor medical problems including stitches for cuts, and for major accidents they give all first aid possible until a doctor arrives. On this cruise, we had two cases of appendicitis. Fortunately they oc- cured while we were in port. Other than that no serious illnesses or injuries occured. The Yoemen handle all of the correspondence that flows thru the ship. The navy, like all big organizations, has to have a great deal of paper work. The personnelmen maintain the service records of the 225 men on board, and operate the ship ' s post office. Our hats are off to the men of the operations division for their outstanding performance in helping to make this cruise successful. ' ..-. r- r .

Providing a worship service for men at sea is quite an experience. There are certain factors that must be considered such as; the many dif- ferent denominations that are represented, the multitude of problems that they continually encounter, the feeling of lonesomeness for loved ones, presenting God in an understandable and convincing way and most im- portant helping the men to see that God is a real God, a personal God ready to help them in their every need. Every Sunday worship service was held on the Mess Deck, either at 1000 or 1830 depending on whether the ship was at sea or in a foreign port. The C. O. usually chooses a qualified man. as lay leader, to conduct worship service since there is no chaplain aboard our ship. There were many religious activities provided for the men to enhance morale, to in- crease understanding of God ' s Word and to bring the men together in Christian Fellowship. Devotions were held on the bow of our ship every evening at 1830, while every Tuesday and Thursday Bible study was held. Sunday and Wednesday evenings were set aside for Singspiration, an hour of gospel singing. At 2200 (taps) the lay leader would give the scripture and prayer over the 1-MC. This was the time when men of all faiths would look up to God for peace, continual protection, speedy return to loved ones and to offer up their humble thanks for His many blessings.
