Original planning of this book called for a large section de-
voted to '6Strike Day" in which the integrated workings of each
department . . . the dependence of one individual upon another
. . . would be accurately portrayed. However, it was soon dis-
covered that the story of the Antietam was too big to handle
in that manner. Therefore, each activity is treated individually
-or as much so as space will permit.
It should be pointed out-especially to the casual reader-
that ship's company and the air group operated as one team,
the objective of that team was the responsibility of each man
aboard: the tailor, the cook, the aircraft mechanic and the pilot.
Everyone worked together as a team-as a big chain which is
no stronger than its weakest link. Everyone contributed to the
smashing of rails, the cutting of enemy supply routes-to the
Antietam's score against the Communist aggressors in North
What follows is an earnest effort to portray, as accurately as
possible, the workings of every department . . . every division
. . . every individual. It is up to the reader to connect these
departments in his mind: to associate the yeoman with the
plane captain . . . to understand that each operation depicted
in this book was as a result of something that happened before
-and was to result in some future incident.
Here, then, is the story of the Antietam and her 1951-52
cruise in the Sea of Japan . . .

Captain George J. Dufek, USN, commanding officer of the
USS Antietam from December, 1950, until May, 1952,
brought the Antietam out of mothballs and took it through a
successful cruise against the Communist forces in North
Korea. From the commissioning of the ship in January of
1951, until he was relieved on May 6, 1952, Captain Dufek
earned the respect and admiration of his crew. The spirit of
this fighting ship, so well evidenced in active combat, belongs
to the commanding officer who molded a shipis company and
air group, composed mostly of reserves, into a potent, well-
Born in Rockford, Illinois, in 1908, Captain Dufek was
graduated from the Naval Academy in 1925. His peacetime
career was notable for his achievements: he is one of the

few naval officers to become qualified for submarine and avia-
tion commands, from 1939 through 1941, and from 1946
through 1948 he participated in Arctic and Antarctic explora-
tions with Admiral Byrd. Before assuming command of the
Antietam, Captain Dufek served two years with the Joint
Chiefs of Staff.
During World War ll. Captain Dufek participated in every
major amphibious operation in the European Theatre. from
the invasion of North Africa to the invasion of Southern
France. For meritorious service in these operations he was
twice awarded the Legion of Meritg the Croix de Cuerre and
the Legion of Honor were awarded him by the French Cov-
ernmentg and for his Arctic explorations he was awarded the
Andre Medal by the Swedish Geographical Society.

CO ER IAMES H. NEWELL, USN. became
Executive Oflicer of the Antietam September 26, 195 1
just before she set sail for the Korean Theatre. He
has been closely connected with carrier aviation since
he received his Wings in January 1940. Prior to re-
porting aboard the Antietam Commander Newell
served as Aviation Plans Officer on the staif of Com-
mander Seventh Fleet and Staff Commander First
COMMANDER ROBERT F. FARRINGTON. USN,
Commander of Carrier Air Group Fifteen, assumed
command of the group when it was commissioned in
April 1951 and continued in command during its
eight months tour of duty in the Korean Area on
board the USS Antietam.
Battle of Antietam Creek
Carriers of the Un1ted States Navy bear proud names of
old shlps of the line as the Essex the Intrepid and the Bon
Homme Richard Many others are named after famous H1111
tary engagements The USS Antietam IS one of the carriers
of the Essex class in this latter group What follows 1S the
story of the Battle of Antietam Creek a battle ln which so
many of our countrymen fought so vallantly and so well
Antietam IS a creek which empties into the Potomac River
near Sharpsburg Maryland lt was ln this small area between
the two rlvers that one of the bloodiest battles of history was
fought September 17 1862
In the Fall of 1862 the Army of the Confederate States was
marching northward, hopeful of capturing Harpers Ferry
and defeating the Federal Army which was gathering near
this point. Several skirmishes took place between September
7 and September 17 as the two armies maneuvered for posi-
tions of advantage. Harpers Ferry was captured September
15, and Sharpsburg fell to the Confederates on September 16.
The Confederate Army, led by Robert E. Lee, was concen-
trating on breaking through the cordon of Federal Armies,
gathered by George McClellan, from Washington and Penn-
sylvania. But the Army of the Confederacy was a weakened
army, for its major force, the Army of Northern Virginia,
had fought continuously for over a year, their supplies were
limited and their numbers had been lessened before the battle
began They faced an army superior 1n numbers and equip
ment Still they were courageous and ready for battle but no
more so than the Union Army
At dawn on September 17 1862 the Battle of Antietam
Creek commenced Opposing armies were dispersed on either
side of the Antietam and north of Sharpsburg along the
Hagerstown Road The action began with an artillerv ex
change but soon exploded into hand to hand combat as one
army would gain and then lose its advantage The battle
waged thusly all day, charge and retreat, gather strength
and charge again. Finally the Union Army crossed the Antie-
tam and advanced, but towards dusk they were driven back
to the edge of the bloody creek. All the following day the two
armies waited, poised, ready for instant action that never
came, and the next day the Confederate Army began its re-
Both sides claimed a victory, and even though the Union
Army lost twice as many men as the Confederate Army, the
victory was with the Union forces. The driving attack by Lee
had been stopped and the ebb of the battle was beginning
This, then, is the story of that battle for which the USS
Antietam is named.
KEEL OF USS ANTIETAM CCV-361 was laid March 15, 1943. She was the first flattop
built by Philadelphia Navy Yard.

Trials, inspections, and more trials Were made ot this new vessel as
she was readied for fleet duty. The ofhcers and crew took her through
preliminary stages of readiness for sea. On January 28, 19415, the
USS Antietam was accepted by the Navy Department and commis-
sioned into active service, and that day she became a fighting ship, a
Way of life for her three thousand men. From the laying of the keel
March 15, 1943, to the commissioning on January 28, 1945, only two
years had been required by the civilian Workers and the military men
of the Navy to fashion a modern man of War from blueprints and steel.

OLD LOOK OF ANTIETAM is evident especially in gun mounts
Captain James Tague took command of the USS
Antietam officially when the ship Was turned over
to him and his crew at the commissioning cere-
monies January 28, 1945. There followed a per-
iod of test runs, practice maneuvers, qualification
of air groups, and periods of yard availability in
Philadelphia. On March 2, 1945, the Antietam
steamed out of the Delaware River on her shake-
down cruise, after which she Was ready to take
active part in any theatre of battle And, on May
19, with Air Group 89 embarked, the Antietam
left for the Pacific
The Antietani and her Air C1 oup were undergo
ing readiness for battle inspections when Japan
surrendered, and aftei successfully completing
these inspections, the Antietam joined Task G1 oup
72 in active support of the Japanese Occupation
From 1946 to 1948 the Antietam opei ated With
the Pacific Fleet in Japanese and Chinese Waters
Early in 1949 the ship was decommissioned
and placed in mothhalls at the Naval A11 Station,
Alameda, California, as a part of the Pacific ie

December 6, 1950, the USS Antietam began activation on a
limited scale as part of a program to recommission carriers
for active and reserve duty in the event of increased activity
in the Korean theatre. On January 17, 1951, the Antietam
was recommissioned and placed in the active reserve, Cap-
tain George J. Dufek commanding. The complement at that
time was eighteen officers and one hundred and thirty en-
listed men, most of them reserves. '
After bay trials on January 20, the Antietam was taken to
the Naval Shipyard, San Francisco, where it remained until
The maintenance and material work that the ship's com-
pany was performing began to take on a more serious 2
air as the ship was readied for active duty. And as it
was receiving additional officers and enlisted men who
would bring the ship up to its normal complement, it
was in the process of undergoing underway training at
The underway training was conducted for a period
of three weeks by personnel from the training command
who helped the Antietam personnel in the organization
of the ship. For this period the ship operated out of San
Diego, conducting routine and special checks of all ma-
chinery, qualifying Air Group 15 and squadrons based
at North Island.
Week ends were spent in San Diego, where the ship's
personnel got much needed relaxation, but each time
the ship returned, more personnel would report aboard
for duty. And then, just as suddenly as the ship
had entered into active service and underway training
and before the training had been completed, it was
ordered to Hbnolulu to take a squadron of jet aircraft
frightj out to a sister ship, the USS Essex. The Antie-
tam left San Diego for Pearl Harbor July 16, 1951.
March 27 receiving alterations prescribed by the Bureau of
Ships and undergoing repairs, overhaul and necessary dry-
docking. From the date of recommissioning until May 10,
1951, the ship's complement was increased to forty-nine ofli-
cers and eight hundred enlisted men. On Mav 14 the home
port of the ship was changed to San Diego, California, and
before the ship could take departure it had been ordered
into the active fleet to be made ready for duty with the Pacific
fleet in Korea. The Antietam arrived in San Diego May 24-.
After returning from Honolulu the Antietam proceeded to the
San Francisco Naval Shipyard for alterations and repairs.
The Air Group was based at Alameda while the slnp was dry-
docked at San Francisco, and for both the ship s company
and the air group there was a period of intense training as
the crews were readied for sea. All of the new personnel who
had reported aboard had to be welded 1nto a coordinated
team, this was difficult, for more than a thousand men had
reported to the ship in less than a month.
And then came September 8, 1951, the date of departure?
the ship had been moved to Alameda to receive the squad-
rons, last goodbyes had been said, and at ten o clock in the
morning the Antietam steamed out for an eight-month tour
of duty. But not directly to the Korean theatre. First, came
the Operational Readiness Inspection at Honolulu, long days
filled with simulated combat tactics and operations to ready
the ship and its pilots for action they would soon be expe-
riencing against the Communist forces in Korea.
For two sleepless weeks the Antietam worked to prove itself
fit for combat duty, and on September 27, 1951, Admiral
A. W. Radford congratulated Captain Dufek on the shipas
successful performance, and wished all hands a successful

Because Skyraiders can gain flying speed in their
500 foot run, only in an emergency are catapults
used to launch them. Less personnel are involved
in their takeoff than in a jet launch. Plane captains
handle the wheel chocks, check wing locks. Plane
directors bring them into takeoff position, the
Flight Deck Officer gives them the go signal. The
engine is revved to a deafening 2,500 horsepower,

Most dependable all purpose aircraft the Navy has ever had
is the FLLU Corsair. ln ten years of Hying for the Navy the F411
has been changed only slightlyg fundamentally it is the same
plane that first saw service over Guadalcanal in 1942. Like the
AD it is an all purpose plane, flying as a lighter or an attack
bomber. The Corsair carries nearly 3,000 pounds of bombs,
rockets and napalm, and is armed with fifty caliber machine

Planes aft on the flight deck are moved forward
to clear deck for landing, or below to hangar

THE FLUATING HOSPITAL
Keeping 3,000 men healthy and fit for combat
is a problem of staggering proportions. How-
ever, the modern Navy has solved many prob-
lems through balanced meals, clean living
conditions, and top-notch medical and dental
facilities. No finer equipment is available any-
where - this floating hospital was staffed by
men with Hknow-how" and experience. Men
were encouraged to visit usick bayw for even
the slightest cut or bruise. As a result, the An-
tietam was known as a healthy and a happy

Mail came aboard and left the ship approximately every fourth day
at sea. On the night before mail was scheduled to go off, letters were
dropped in the post office letter slot faster than four men could cancel

THE AN TIETAM
E ER SLEEPS
Comparative silence falls over ship at
taps, but Work goes on.
At taps, many men go to sleep, but many others are
just starting their day's work. Men are working on air-
craft, getting them ready for the dawn strike. Bombs,
rockets and ammunition are being handled throughout
the ship. The galley is a beehive of activity as break-
fast and even dinner are being prepared.
Q Up on the bridge, many men move silently in a dim
red light to keep the ship on course - in the right spot
within the Task Force. Below in the Engine Room many
others are working to supply the ship with power to
move forward, power for lights. The evaporators are
still turning out water at the rate of 90,000 gallons
While many men sleep, many others are hard at
work. The Antietam never actually sleeps - but the
comparative silence of night-time routine was captured
by the camera through the use of a long time exposure.
Men were moving in front of the camera, but they
moved often enough and fast enough so that no image
was recorded on the film.

Most integrity and security Watches are of four hours' duration, and go
on 'round the clock. By far the loneliest is the ulVlid Watch," from midnight
to 0400, when the Watchstandersgare virtually alone.
While many hundreds are asleep, a small group of Lookouts are on watch
in the cold blackness of night - the hundreds rely on the few to spot impend-

One aircraft aboard the Antietam holds the undisputed record
for iiying most hours during cruise. It is the helicopter operated
by the Helicopter Unit.

rier, the helicopter flew
as a plane guard every

ENTHUSIASM FUR SPORTS SWEEPS SHIP
Intramural and inter-ship contests attract widespread interest
The sports program aboard the Antietam played a great part
in the morale of the men. At sea sports of any kind were dith-
cult because of restricted space and operations. Basketball and
volleyball proved favorites. Two baskets were rigged at the
forward end of the hanger deck and were in use whenever
there was room between parked planes. Two volleyball nets
were in constant use when operations permitted. Divisional
playoffs were held in both of these sports. In addition there
was boxing, wrestling, weight lifting, ping pong, fencing and,
when the wind wasn't too strong, football on the flight deck.
To bring the sports program to a climax an Antietam Olym-
pics was held While enroute from Japan to Pearl Harbor.

ANTIETAM PICKS A CHARITY
Adopting a charity became the custom of homeward
bound Navy vessels several years ago. About midpoint
in Antietam's cruise, crew members approached the
ship's Skipper concerning such a fund. Captain Du-
fek's official reply:
MI have been hesitant about suggesting such contri-
butions, as I realize that at best the salaries of military
personnel are limited. However, since this appears to
me a movement o1'iginating with the crew, I give it my
full-hearted endorsement as a worthy project."
A committee was selected to choose a charity which
was Hfree of any religious or political connectionfi
The decision was unanimous, and the Antietam Fund
for Shriners Hospitals for Crippled Children was of-
Collection boxes were placed in pay lines every pay
day. The goal was placed at 315,000-roughly a dol-
lar per man each pay day.
Two Weeks before arriving in the United States, the
men of the Antietam had contributed 315,354.10

ANTIETAM LEAVES PEARL
HARBOR: ENROUTE TO U.S.
Qu March 19th, the Antietam left Task Force 77 for the last
time to spend a little more than three Weeks at port in Yokosuka,
Japan. Part of that time Was regular Rest and Recuperation
Leave, the rest as uStandby Carrier."
As sailing date neared, supplies and bombs were off-loaded
for the Antietamis successors. Her planes Were flown to a field
111 Japan and, on April 17th, she left Japan and set her course
Arriving in Pearl Harbor on Thursday morning, the ship re-
ceived a Marine Fighter Squadron bound for the U.S., and sev-
eral civilian guests and newspaper reporters. During the two-day
visit, crew members enjoyed a final liberty in Hawaii.
At 1000 today, the big ship steamed past Waikiki Beach and
disappeared around Diamond Head . . . homeward bound.

MARCIA TAKES THE CHECK
Climax of the Antietamas fund drive for the Shrineifs Hospitals
for Crippled Children came when Marcia Owens, 7, of National
City, California, was carried aboard by an officer. She was then
carried to the ranks of men by Captain Dufek who placed her
carefully on the deck. The little girl, in the braces she was given
at the Shrine Hospital in San Francisco, Walked slowly past the
men to receive the check from Airman Francis E. Montee.
SWEETHEART OF THE SHIP, Marcia
Owens shook hands with
about thirty of the
men. Each bent forward from the position of
attention to greet Marcia.

IN CREW'S LIBRARY, MEN LOOK AT ANTIETAM-HOMECOMING CLIPPINGS FROM LOCAL NEWSPAPERS
When the Antietam steamed into the Air Station at Ala-
meda, California, on May 2, scores of television and
newsreel cameramen, radiomen and newspaper re-
porters were on hand. Stories were carried in all Ala-
meda, Oakland and San Francisco papers and in other
papers and magazines throughout the nation.
An editorial, MYoung Americans Come Homef' in
the San Francisco Chronicle on May 3 said, in part:
Wllhe gift of 315,354 . . . was an act of humanitar-
ianism above and beyond the call of duty . . . The Navy
modestly says the men were only observing a custom . . .
The size and generosity of their donation, however, is
evidence that this was no mere bow to tradition . . . It is
probable that the Antietam will now return to the Re-
serve Fleet. As she goes, an GE, for Excellence should
be painted on her stack and a page entered in her ship's
history, just rewards for special service above and be-
yond the call of dutyf,

Dear Captain Dufek:
This will acknowledge with thanks your
letter and enclosed copy of the January 26th issue
of Antietam, in which my recent letter to you was
published. It was most thoughtful of you to send it
I was happy to learn that the Shrine
Crippled Chi1dren's Fund now totals 88500 and that
you expect to reach a goal of Sl5,000. It 19 A msg
encouraging sign when men who are so busily engaged
in fighting aggression can contribute so generously to
such a worthy cause.
I do want you to know that I appreciate
your taking the time to write me.
with best wishes for over-the-top success,
U, S. 5, Antietem

San Francisco, California
A copy of your ship publication dated Saturday, February Z3rd, l952,
reaches me and the very interesting article regarding the Antietqm
Fund drive for the Shriners Hospitals for Crippled Children produces
a reader item that would not only share the interest of the nearly
700,000 Shriners in the country, but also the warm and glowing inggrug
of more than 250,000 crippled children who have been either completely
cured or materially helped by their visits to our merciful institutions.
I address you as "Illu.strious Sir", and certainly such salutation is
appropriate for each and every member of the crew of your great ship.
lt is very heartwarming to know that such men engaged in the work of
fighting the battles of the country can yet find time to think objectively
about the crippled children of our land. Permit me to qgg whggeyer
words I have at my command to express our grateful appreciation to
"ch 'nd "WY 'me of YOU f0l' lhle continued friendship and unselfish
interest in the work of the Shrine organisation. May Diving Pggyldem-3
guide and direct each of you and bless you for your thoughts and actions
With a personal greeting to each of you that bears with it the warmth of
the spoken word, I am

On April 17 when I first heard of the gracious act of the crew of the Antfstam
in selecting the Shrinere Hospitals for Crlppled Children ae the recipient of their
charitable gifts I did not fully grasp the significance of what it meant.
Now that I have been given the marvelous opportunity of becoming one of a group
of U.S. citizens to meet this ship at Honolulu and return to the Italnland se your
guest lt has been my privelege to meet many of the officers and crew and learn first
hand really what has happened.
In my 15 years as a member of the Board of Trustees cf the Hospitals I have
never known of an act which has reflected so much credit on the giver and the recl-
Piint. Your confidence ln us and our work, your tolersticn ln making the selection
and the splrlt of the entire ship, can only cause 700,000 Shriners to look upon this
Grand Navy of ours ln a different light. We heretofore have recognized tlom as
truly our first line of defense. New when fn the midst of fighting our battles and
daily risking their lives, they pause to consider those even less fortunate and as a
SHIV 00ml-Waite unit of 2900 Officers and men contribute over 515,000 to these 1101110
ones, I, for one, am simply overwhelmed, and I know every other Shrlner will be also
when I convey to them the story.
I We can only say, thank you and llay God Bless and protect each and every one

1. It has come to the attention of the Secretary of the
Navy that the officers and crew of the USS ANTIETAM.
after electing to raise funds for an appropriate charit-
able effort, succeeded in amassing total contributions
of SIS, 353, which sum has been turned over to the hos-
pitals conducted by the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine.
2. This voluntary effort on the part of the officers and
men of the ANTIETAM reflects the most wholesome
desire to assist in alleviating the sufferings of the un-
fortunate, and moreover reflects high credit on the
3. Such accomplishments as this serve as A continuing
reminder that the Naval Establishment is an integral
part of American society, and it is my pleasure to com-
mend thls effort on the part of the officers and men of
the ANTIETAM with a heartfelt Well Done.

"V-1-A"-the Arresting Gear Division of the Antietam-
operates and maintains the equipment which arrests fstopsl
returning aircraft. There are seven deck edge stations to con-
trol the arresting cables which are lifted from the deck hy-
draulically. The tail hook of a landing aircraft engages one
of the cables, which is stretched across the width of the deck,
and stops Within a few feet. The cables are then immediately
dropped so that the plane can clear the area to make room
for the next one.
Should a plane fail to engage one of the arresting cables,
barriers serve to halt the aircraft with a minimum of damage.
