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 Korea. 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 . . . THE EDITORS e 4 X ,s S 1 . , . I! 4 1 9 Q . I l l 4 4 4 2 2 1 2 2 9 Z Z Z 2 5 5 2 E 9 a 5 2 !

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- coordinated unit. 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 CAPTAIN GEORGE I. DUFEK, USN 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. jj '23 '57 ".2.j'Q'fz"-,"2A?1 fjifgr 5. ,"- 'f ' V A "7 E-L H ' 1 . . .. 4 ,N J, 1 1, --.qu :.':.1-',.:.-1 :--,.v. .. ,--.. . .,-...,. . ,, .,, .4 .K-- ,,.,,:,2,:,,:,. ....- ... .f , - 1 ' 'f " -.1 , ,. ..

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- treat south. 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 to turn. 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. fX V V ,Ir QQ., .S rffi' ' 4, XX 53?

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. 1 QQ phil: fy-dxf H daggggjf f is Qi: U r .

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 serve Heet .--1 -" ,K D ..

' 1 - ' -1 "" ' -- w 7 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 San Diego. 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-. I 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 cruise.

These are the planes that carry the big punch-two 20mm Wing can- nons, rockets, up to 6,000 pounds of bombs, or deadly napalm. In this six-month tour of duty, the Skyraiders dropped over 5,000,000 pounds of destruction on troop concentrations and trans- portation facilities. The five AD's flown by composite squadrons ll and 35 have special functions to perform. They carry complex electronics gear for anti-subma- rine patrol, and night missions. One or two crew- me11 are carried to operate the electronics gear. PLANE CAPTAINS Qleftj wait signal to pull wheel chocks as pilots check full throttle performance just before takeoff.

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, brakes released, and the plane is gone.

FIGHTERS TAKE UFF 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 guns. VF 713 flew over 10095 of their assigned missions in FLLUS for a total of 4,165 combat hours. Four F4Us, fitted with special equipment, were operated by Composite Squadron 3 on night heckler missions. MOVING UP to takeoff position, pilot spreads his f1ghter's wings. Plane director, near wing, directs pilot on to the next plane director. . CORSAIRS LINE UP awaiting turn to take off. Fast handling of planes keeps launch moving without delay. PLANE CONTINUES takeoff run. By this time, next plane has moved into position, will start run in few seconds. TURNING OFF starboard bow, pi- lot clears flight deck of prop wash 21S soon as possible. FLIGHT DECK OFFICER ducks and braces himself against prop wash as he looks for next plane to launch. Man on right is directing next plane forward. PRCCESSION FORWARD starts after planes are launched. Like other flight deck operations, respotting is performed at top speed. HITCHING UP to Skyraider, tractor driver applies brakes only for a sec- ond. At destination there is no pause, tow bar is released by lever. FOR PLANE CAPTAINS, A FEW MINUTES ON THE SIDELINES AFTER LAUNCH The strike safely launched, furious action is re- placed by slower but equally efficient movement. Planes aft on the flight deck are moved forward to clear deck for landing, or below to hangar deck, or planes on the hangar deck are brought topside. Ordnancemen and maintenance person- nel tackle their aircraft, arresting gear is checked, plane pushers and directors are at their busiest. But for plane captains whose aircraft are some- where over Korea, an hour or two of relaxation is possible. ORDNANCEMEN utilize the relatively quiet interval to trundle up more rockets, bombs. They are loaded on carts below, brought up to flight deck on elevator. Z7 Q ff LAUNCH COMPLETED,' planes which did not fake off are move d forward fo clear . flight deck for landings.

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 ship. SICK BAY was scene of several emergency operations. fAbovej Doctor pre- pares to "snip off" appendix which is held extended by assistant.

Incoming messages were typed on multiple forms, delivered to departments co-ncerned. Every man aboard the Antietam was vitally concerned with communi- cations. For the most part, interest centered around mail from home. 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 and sort it. Oflicial communications and stateside press news came aboard 241 hours every day. Many men received personal telegrams from home telling of births, deaths, other vital news.

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 every day. 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.

NIGHT WATCHMEN In the Navy, Watchstanding is a chore that plagues most men every few days, is carried on in addition to regular Work. There are numerous types of Watches -from keeping an eye on Water levels in the hoiler room to deck pacing with a rifle. The Air Group had three to six men on Watch at all times, looking for fires, gas and oil leaks, and to make sure that closely parked planes did not Work loose with the pitch and roll of the ship. 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- ing danger. , Watchstanding - especially for the Night Watchmeii - is a dull, lonely, thankless and important joh.

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.

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- ficially underway. 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 FUND COMMITTEE gathers around sign showing S15 ,000 goal has been passed. Left to right: Chaplain P.

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 for Hawaii. 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.

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, ! 4 , , ,, 1 ,, U ,A ,, ,,,,f,--ir, ,3, , , y y W,,'v1'i"'t'tif2Hs1:.' w15'w.w was IJNL b . f B Mm gal .,- 'ilffw' W , ,V .T H - J is in wt- -'smlllwm 'E -FOR NORTH AMERICA GENERAL OFFICES-CHICAGO If 'is J '5- , x . 4 .- N ,l 4, , .., .- I,-- nsosol M ssulons Cor4Mcg4w:sL1'n-4 or Pzunavnvama I-pn.: sans.. ov:nNoR's Orrlcc 'num nv: un ncaa nam Hsnnusauno cas...

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.

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.

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 entire Navy. 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. .-.,,,,4 Edward L.

"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. FRONT ROW, leff fo righf: R. C. PuclceH', E. V. Pena, R. R. Haling, L. D.
