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-
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
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.

The submarine with its deadly tor-
pedo has been by far the most effective
enemy method of destroying ships at
sea. For this reason the Navy has given
top priority to developing of tools which
will be needed to overcome the sub-
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.

work as a team to find the sub in the
quickest and surest way.
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.

half a million bustling people. There is little to remind you that
Algiers was once a stronghold of the Barbary pirates who roamed the
Mediterranean right up until the early 19th century.

hotels, and her native quarter, or Casbah with its shades of a by-gone

The city of Genoa, Italy, played host to the ANTIETAM for ten days dur-
ing the month of February. 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.

The ANTIETAM supplied a
little "personalized service" in
Genoa when men stranded
ashore were brought in by heli-
The "Horses" were employed
when a sudden storm and ac-
companying rough seas made
boating impossible. Liberty par-
ties had been forced to seek
shelter overnight aboard de-
stroyers tied up at Maritime
But when the rain stopped
and the sea remained stormy
with breakers smashing at the
sea wall, the ANTIETAM called
on the helicopters. They re-
sponded by ferrying our grate-
ful tourists back aboard.
Liberty the hard way,
This is what we had hoped for.
It ipds fl quick back.
But we were resourceful.

During our stay at Genoa we had an oppor-
tunity to take overnight tours to Florence, one of
the leading art centers of the world and the most
beautiful city in all of Europe.
Its magnificent art exhibits, famed the world

Fun for all!
Sistriere was the only ski resort tour
available in the Med and We made the most
of it. This village in the Italian Alps is one of
the most popular Winter spots in the Mediter-
ranean and is the site of some of the import-
ant skiing festivals of Europe. While we
werenlt olympic champions, We were able to
traverse some of the less lofty slopes.
The weather was made to order with
just enough snow for Winter sports but not
too much to impede our other activities. A
few of the less athletic tourists enjoyed them-
selves relaxing in the sun and amazing some
of the local visitors with their 'fsnowball
Winter scenery at its fnest.

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-

If the aircraft can surprise the sub
while it is surfaced they can attack with
their rockets and sink him before he
has a chance to dive. 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.
