of USS ARLINGTON, and to the Uffieers

This Book ls Proudly Presented...
HISTORY OF THE SHIP
ARLINGTON was built as the small aircraft carrier
SAIPAN by the New York Shipbuilding Corporation,
Camden, New Jersey. Her keel was laid 10 July
1944 and she was launched 8 July 1945, under the
sponsorship of Mrs. John W. McCormack, wife of
Congressman John W. McCormack of Massachusetts
and Majority Leader of the House of Representa-
tives. The small aircraft carrier was commis-
sioned in the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard as
SAIPAN CCVL-489 14 July 1946, Captain John
G. Crommelin, USN, commanding.
Having an overall length of 684 feet, displacement
of 14,500 tons, draft of 28 feet and a designed speed
of 33 knots, she is capable of carrying 234 officers,
1,487 men, and 50 aircraft.
Her first mission after leaving Philadelphia 17
August 1946, was to train student aviators out of
Pensacola, Florida as a unit of the Naval Air Train-
ing Command. During her eight month stay in Flor-
ida more than 1,200 landings were made on her
flight deck. After a brief overhaul period back in
Norfolk, and another brief tour out of Pensacola,
she joined the Operational Development Force out
of Norfolk, which helped pioneer jet operational
techniques, carrier support tactics, and to test and
prove new electronics devices.
On 18 April 1948 she became the flagship of Carrier
Division Seventeen and she hoisted the flag of Rear
Admiral T. H. Robbins, USN. She left for Quonset
Point, Rhode Island, where, on 3 May 1948 she em-
barked Flight Squadron 17A. That forenoon she
commenced launching FH-1 jet aircraft to introduce
the first complete squadron of jet fighters into regu-
lar fleet operations from a Navy aircraft carrier.
On 6 May she demonstrated to the press the first jet
Her cruises then took her to Caper Farwell, Green-
land, down to Guantanamo, Cuba, to Aircraft Devel-
opment Squadron Three back in Norfolk, and then to
Canada where she transported U.S. Ambassador
Steinhardt and Brigadier 'General Jean Allard,
HMRCA up to the St. Lawrence River to Montreal.
She then returned to Norfolk for reservist training
in May, 1949. In the following September she was at
Quonset'Point, Rhode Island where she embarked
men of the 'Canadian Carrier of Florida. This duty
was completed by 4 November when Development
Squadron Three embarked at Norfolk for operations
reaching off the Florida Coast and back to Norfolk.
Her following training operations saw her in Cuba
again, and then to the Mediterranean as flagship of
Carrier Division 14 with the Sixth Fk-ret. She called
at Gibralter, Tunis, Golfe Juan, Algiers, and Sicily
in August 1951. Then it was home again and north
for task force operations off Greenland.
After several midshipman training cruises out of
Norfolk again, SAIPAN departed on her world
cruise on 28 September 1953. She transited the Pan-
ama Canal, underwent brief training in Hawaii and
went on to Yokosuka. Following coastal and inter-
island reconnaissance off the West Coast of Korea,
she carried Air Force and Army veterans for rec-
reation at Hong Kong, before returning them to
She performed further reconnaissance on the West
Coast of Korea and supported Marine Division
assault landing exercises off Iwo Jima. She then
went on to Tourane Bay, French Indo-China in April
of 1954. The morning of the 18th of April she
launched aircraft to French authorities on shore to
aid in the defense of the besieged garrison of Dien
Bien Phu. She served again along the Korean coast
during May of that year prior to her homecoming
back in the States. C
The year of 1954 also saw helicopters launched from
the SAIPAN's flight deck. During "Hurricane Hazel"
which practically leveled Haiti, she launched the
first of many helos on reconnaissance flights over
the hurricane disaster area. From 14 October to 21
October, helos from SAIPAN helped avert famine,
epidemics, and other disorders by flying in vast
amounts of food, medical supplies and medical
teams to assist hurricane victims. Her mercy mis-
sion brought her the singular honor from the Haitian
Government which voted her a Member of the Order
of Merit of the Republic of Haiti. After another tour
of training student aviators at Pensacola, she was to
render like aid to other hurricane disaster areas of
Tampico and Vera Cruz.
SAIPAN commenced the launch of helicopters the
afternoon of 1 October 1955 when Rear Admiral
M. E. Miles, Commander Panama Sector, Caribbean
Sea Frontier, broke his flag in SAIPAN to direct
the naval disaster relief operations. In eight days
her helicopters flew over 3,000 individual missions.
They delivered more than a half million pounds of
food and medical supplies, transported 81 medical
teams and rescued 6,171 persons. In addition to her
helicopter operations, some 200 officers and men of
SAIPAN formed a SAIPAN River Flotilla to oper-
ate in the City of Tampico where they rescued un-
told numbers of persons.
f W ..
SAIPAN was decommissioned at Bayonne, New Jersey on 3 October 1957, and
was placed in the Atlantic Reserve Fleet. She entered the yard of the Alabama
Dry Dock and Shipbuilding Company at Mobile, Alabama on 30 March 1963 for
conversion to a command ship UCC-35. After consideration of the more urgent
need for a mobile communications relay ship, SAIPAN was redesignated a
Major Communication Relay CAGMR-29 while still in the conversion yard 1
September 1964. Her name was changed to ARLINGTON CAGMR-25, effective
8 April 1965, commemorating Arlington County, Virginia, one of the Navy's
first sites for wireless test stations. Radio ARLINGTON was commissioned
13 February 1913, having been built on a portion of Fort Myers which had
been transferred to the Navy for this purpose in 1910.
The ARLINGTON Crest takes its form and design
from the ancient symbols of heraldry which through
the ages have represented particular acts of valor,
hereditary honors, and other notable distinctions of
nobility. Historically, the basic design of these
shields has been any of a variety of shapes: round,
square, oval, triangular, or the traditional heart-
shaped shield. This last design has long beenxmost
favored and has been selected as the,basic1crestfor
the ARLINGTON. The placement of descriptive de-
vices upon the shield is symbolic of specific charac-
teristics of the bearer. In the ARLINGTON Crest,
the placement of the United States Naval Communi-
cations Emblem in the center of the shield refers to
the head of the bearer and implies that the achieve-
ment represented is one of great intelligence and
wisdom. The metals and colors used to emblazon
shield of arms also have specific symbolic refer-
ences. Gold was selected for the ARLINGTON
Crest as it exceeds all other metals in value, pur-
ity, and fineness. It is aspired that the ARLINGTON
can approach these standards of professional ex-
cellence in the performance of its mission. The
colors refer to personal qualities. Red has tradi-
tionally represented blood, shed in defense of one's
country, Blue symbolizes men worthy of trust and
confidence, and finally, Black depicts men of con-
stant and faithful character. It is expected that the
crew of the ARLINGTON will demonstrate these
personal qualities in pursuit of their mission. The
broad "V" on the shield, historically known as the
"Pile", is a traditional emblem of stability, of a
sure foundation, and of firm and unwavering support.
Finally, the Latin inscription, "UBI ACTIO EST"
fWhere there is Action or Where the Action ish iS
taken from teletype Reperforator tape where it is
commonly inscribed. It is appropriately symbolic of

Die ,,Arlington" hat den Rumpf eines
Schweren Kreuzers und das Deck eines Flug-
zeugtragers. Beides zusammenlief 1946 als
Experimentier-Flugzeugtriiger vom Stapel.
Das erste Experiment bestand darin, daB
Start- und Landebedingungen fiir Diisenjager
erprobt wurden. Das zweite Experiment be-
gann 1965, als der Rumpf mit einer Fiille
elektrdnischer Gerate vollgestopft wurde, mit
der man mehrere kommerzielle Rundfunk-
sender und ein iiffentliches Rechenzentrum
hatte aufbauen konnen., Aus dem flachen
Flugzeugtragerdeck wuchs ein Mastenwald
voller Antennen, die teleskopartig auszufah-
ren oder seitwarts auszuschwenken sind.
Wie ein Krake, deriseine Tentakel aus-
streckt, fahrt die ',,Arlington" im Einsatz ihre
19 Sende- und 22 Empfanqsantennen aus.
Die Fernsehantenne nicht mitgerechnet. Sie
,kann nur im Kiistenbereich in1fAktion treten
oder wenn eine TV-Schau iiber den Satelliten
ausgestrahlt wird. Der Mastenwald auf de

Exercise Clove Hitch IH
In April, ARLINGTON traveled to the Caribbean for the second time. We
participated in a joint Army-Navy-Marine-Air Force operation known as Clove
Hitch III. ARLINGTON lended her ample communication resources to support
air, land and sea attacks on islands that were, under pretense of the operation,
revolution-torn and controlled by communist guerrillas.
"ARLINGTON performance of duty as an afloat communication
stationduring joint exercise Clove Hitch III was outstanding."

SAN JUAN ..... A PARADISE
San Juan, a sailor's paradise, added to the experience' and adventures of AR-
LINGTON sailors. The liberty party's time was well spent in sight seeing
excursions, and intimate studies of local customs. After observing the some-
what low standard of living in certain areas, the crew felt it their duty to
patronize the local businesses and did so eagerly in the spirit of international
Due to ARLINGTON spending only thirty-six hours at the island, no one spent
too much time lounging around. Eager photographers snapped these pictures
of never-forgotten memories.
Yes, San Juan will long be remembered in the hearts of ARLINGTON sailors.

Post Shakedown Availability
During our return from the North Atlantic, ARLINGTON en-
countered a violent storm which, subsequently, caused extensive
damage to the forward part of the ship. Not having time to cor-
rect this condition before Clove Hitch III, we were forced to
await our Post Shakedown Availability in N N SY. Finally, during
May and June, the ship was mended to ready her for deployment.
Change of Command
COMSERVLANT, Rear Admiral R. L. Renken, USN, is greeted at the
quarterdeck in Norfolk on 16 June 1967 by Captain Utegaard and Commander
Wheeler, for the ceremony. During the interim from 3 May 1967 to 16 June
Commander Wheeler served as ARLINGTON's Commanding Officer following
the sudden incapacitating illness of Captain Darrah. Commander Wheeler was
now to resume his duties as the Executive Officer.
I relieve you, Sir."
With Rear Admiral Renken,
Captain Utegaard cuts the cere-
monial cake in honor of the
"The ship is presently undergoing the final
phases of completing Post Shakedown Availa-
bility and load-out for an extended deployment.
It is considered that the availability completion

Captain Thomas F. Utegaard
Thomas F. UTEGAARD was born in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin on 5 Jan-
uary 1922. He entered the U. S. Naval Academy as a Midshipman in August
1941 with the Naval Academy Class of 1945 and, because of the wartime aca-
demic acceleration, was graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree and
commissioned an Ensign on D-Day, the sixth of June, 1944.
Ensign UTEGAARD spent the next four and one-half years aboard the light
cruiser, USS PASADENA CCL-655, which was present in Tokyo Bay at the time
of the Japanese surrender and which had earned six battle stars in Asiatic-
Pacific campaign ribbon during the concluding stages of World War II.
On subsequent tours of duty afloat, he served as Communications Officer on
the staff of Commander Destroyer Squadron Thirty Four, as Executive Officer
of the USS STODDARD QDD-5665, as Operations Officer of the USS ST PAUL
QCA-755 and as Commanding Officer of USS KOINER CDER-3317 and of USS
O'BANNON CDD-4505. Tours ashore have included duty with the Fleet Train-
ing Group, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, U. S. Naval Postgraduate education in Com-
munications and in Navy Management, a tour in the Pentagon with CNO's Shore
Activities Development and Control Division, and two and one-half years at
the Naval Academy as an instructor to the Midshipmen in the science of
Captain UTEGAARD's most recent assignment prior to assuming command
of ARLINGTON was with the Director, Naval Communications, where he
served as the Assistant to the Director, Naval Security Group in matters con-
cerning security operations, a position which he held since August 1965.
He is married to the former Audrey Ann MARTIN of Harrisonburg, Virginia.
They have three children, daughters Carol Ann and Karen Ann, and a son Eric
who just completed his second year as a midshipman at the Naval Academy
with the Class of 1969.
Visit of Sagres
The Portuguese naval ship SAGRES
visited the United States in June and
entered the Naval Yard at Norfolk on
a training and good-will tour. AR-
LINGTON acted as host ship through-
out their stay and conducted a tour for
the crew of our visiting Allies.

Atlantic to Pacific Ocean. A mammoth

tween the 3rd and 4th locks, which is
advantageous for a rare fresh water

on Yankee Station was Subic Bay, Philippine

out and do the job we were sent to do, we en-
joyed the chance to see yet another part of the

Naval Base, became the ARLINGTON's "for-

set up on the antenna deck and the men and officers of ARLINGTON were
treated to a steak cook-out. Thanks to the efforts of the S-2 and S-2M divisions,
steaks were cooked to order over a red-hot charcoal grill. Along with the
main course, potato salad, baked beans, pie and fruit punch were served to the

Secure Relays' primary mission is to provide a linkage with as many as three
NAVCOMMSTAS simultaneously with the ships that terminate with the ARLINGTON
from the Secure Message Center. Secure Relay has the capability of receiving and
sending to the NAVCOMMSTAS with six channels providing different intelligence on
each one-therefore eighteen can be used at the same time. The speed in which the
teletype machines can receive and transmit messages is 100 wpm on each channel.
Relay operates with the torn tape system-that is all incoming messages are received
by tape, and torn off the teletype machine individually. They are then placed in the
MAPS equipment. The long name for MAPS is Multiple Address Processing System.
This equipment segregates the multiple addresses and provides a tape for each ad-
dress at the send ftransmittingh equipment at the rate of 850 wpm. Due to the Top
Secret equipment, cameras are not permitted in the areas.
