ANTIETAM CVS 36 Cruzse Book Staff Edztorz LTJG Jerome Blumsteln Art and Layout: Wrztzng. Donald Reiff ET2 Frank Doyle 103 Richard Kish RD2 Raymond.Rosenbaum JOSN Typist: james Sacco SN In general, carriers of the Navy bear names in commemoration of important battles in U. S. history or of old distinguished ships of the Navy itself. ANTIETAM is one of the first category and glorifies the victory of Antietam Creek, fought near Sharps- burg, Maryland, on September 17, 1862, between the Federal Army of the U. S. and the Army of the Con- federate States. Although each side considered itself the victor at the time, history has proven it to have been one of the turning points of the war to preserve the Union. The ANTIETAM,s keel was laid 15 March 1943 at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard and just 22 months later she was commissioned. This set a record for ships of this size. However, the time necessary for fitting out, trials, shakedown, etc. prevented her from seeing action against Japan. She did get a chance to operate in support of the japanese occupation until 1949 when she was mothballed as part of the Pacific Reserve Fleet. To support the Korean conflict, the ANTIETAM was reactivated during the critical fall and winter of 1951, her aircraft dumped almost ten million pounds of bombs on the enemy. There followed a brief period in the inactive Pacific Fleet again until the summer of 1952, at which time she sailed for the East Coast. In Septem- ber 1952 she entered the New York Naval Shipyard and a few months later departed as the first canted deck carrier in the world. Evaluation operations with both United States and British Naval Aviation units proved the efficiency of the canted deck principle beyond any doubt. In recognition of the potential threat of the sub- marine as demonstrated in both World Wars, the Navy has ordered certain of its finest ships to anti- submarine warfare. Thus, the ANTIETAM has been assigned a primary mission in support of the Navy's anti-submarine warfare task.

For this reason the Navy has given top priority to developing of tools which will be needed to overcome the sub- marine. We will have to hunt them down and kill them. Near land, and where bases are available, shore based aircraft including helicopters and blimps will be used in this difficult task-but far at sea and away from bases one of the most effective tools may be the special team of ships and planes we know as the Hunter-Killer Group. Such a group can be sent to and operate for long per- iods in any area where enemy submar- ines are concentrating. -Q., 4- Eg. vit- ' Z , w, .4- M , 'av 4 ,Ax 4 A.. , ,.,..... ...,.,+ ...few if?

One of the key players on the team is Air Anti-Submarine Squadron 26 QVS-26? with its new Sub-Killer planes called the "S2F,'. This plane equipped with its radar, MAD fMagnetic Airborne Detectionj gear, which tells of the presence of a submarine beneath the surface, plus a device for listen- ing for the sub's radar and other electronic signals, is capable of searching for and find- ing most any sub in the area. Suddenly contact is made with a sub- marine and the entire force is put on the alert. Helicopters and a surface attack unit of Destroyers are dispatched at full speed to the contact area. qu' Q if q Z 31 -Sun ima gm W 2 N .X,.A X 3404 " -em.

The city, itself a busy metropolis of more than a million people, offered us some of the finest liberty in the Mediterranean. The seafarer has played an important part in the life of Naples since the earliest days and its port facilities are today among the most complete in the World.

XVe were fortunate to take advantage of a pleasant break in the weather and visit the city that rates second only to Paris.

Organized tours left our hotels every morning to View the past and present of that beautiful capital. XVe only regretted more time could not be spent in our favorite places.

Despite the inclement Weather which often ham- pered our sightseeing, we were able to view some of the cityis more famous sights. High on the list was the famous Military Graveyard with its many monu- ments and art exhibits affording us excellent photographic material. Genoa itself was a city of culture and beauty with many museums, churches, and universities. Some of the regal places such as the former home of the Doges, made lasting impressions on us. The many fountains and statues were reminiscent of Rome. Genoa's nightlife wasn't lacking either as most of us made the rounds of the local cabarets and plush clubs. We found the Seaman's Club reminded us of the States with American records and stateside-flavored dinners. In? I Why A as MQ'k 1 I -.fx ff-4.

When the SQF has a contact he drops a pattern of "Sonobouysv into the water. This is a subsurface listening device which pro- vides the aircraft with information of the movements of a fully submerged submarine. It permits the aircraft to maintain contact with and track the sub until other units arrive in the area. As the helicopter arrives at the contact area it adds the distinctive advantages of its extreme maneuverability and capacity to hover with precision. This permits the heli- copter to lower its dipping sonar into the water and accurately track the sub until the arrival of the destroyers. When the Destroyers enter the contact area they immediately start tracking the sub on their shipboard sonar equipment as they prepare to commence their coordinated at- tacks.

But if the sub is submerged, the delivery of an effective attack against him demands a degree of procedural teamwork required in few other naval operations. The Destroyers move in on the sub and through their cumulative efforts provide mutual support and execute a rapid series of attacks. Unless the sub is destroyed by a single attack, the De- stroyers persist in their efforts until de- struction is accomplished. A prime point of vulnerability in the sub is that even- tually it must surface. Through the ex- ercise of persistence, contact can be held and the sub eventually destroyed. lx 1-da...-nuibuza-1 vi' -9-Nr' ,..f YW! 41 mf? .-Us , 't f"l,,.,l 2 "RAF-g"e" fwfr? if 1. , Z mxli , 7 zu, ,, 51 , . 7 fy . 5 ' , f"L I' 3, s-:..i N Wh x nw , XL- ,l , gy, Q!
