ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT "THE SNlPE'S LAlVlENT" Now each of us from Time To Time, has gazed upon The sea, And waTched The worships pulling ouT, To keep This counTry free. And mosT of us have read a book, or heard a IusTy Tale, AbouT The men who sail These ships Through lighTning, wind and hail. BuT There's a place wiThin each ship, ThaT legend fails To Teach. lT's down below The waTerline, iT Takes a living Toll . . . A hoT meTal living hell, ThaT sailors call "THE HOLE". lT houses engines run by sTeam, ThaT make The shafTs go round, A place of fire, noise, and heaT, ThaT beaTs your spiriTs down. Where boilers like a hellish heari, wiTh blood of angry sTeam, Are molded gods wiThouT remorse, and nighTmares in a dream. Whose ThreaT ThaT from The fires roar, is like a living doubT, ThaT any minuTe would wiTh scorn, escape and crush you ouT. Where Turbines scream like Torlured souls, alone and losT in hell, As orders from above somewhere, They answer every bell. The men who keep The fires liT, and make The engines run, Are sTrangers To The world of nighT, and rarely see The sun. They have no Time for man or God, no Tolerance for fear, Their aspecT pays no living Things, The TribuTe of a Tear. For There's noT much ThaT men can do, ThaT These men haven'T done, BeneaTh The decks, deep in The hole, To make The engines run. And every hour of every day, They keep The waTch in hell, For if The fires should ever fail, Their ship's a useless shell. When ships converge To have a war, upon an angry sea, The men below jusT grimly smile, aT whaT Their faTe mighT be. They're locked in below like men fore-doomed, who hear no baTTle cry lT's well assumed ThaT if They're hiT, The men below will die. For every day's a war down There, when The gauges all read red, Twelve hundred pounds of heaTed sTeam, can kill you mighTy dead. So if you ever wriTe Their sons, or Try To Tell Their Tale, Their very words would make you hear, a fired furnace's wail. And people as a general rule, don'T hear of men of sTeel, So liTTle's heard abouT The place, ThaT sailors call "THE HOLE". BuT l can sing abouT This place, and Try To make you see, The hardened life of men down There, 'cause one of Them is me. l've seen These sweaTy heroes fighT, in super heaTed air, To keep Their ship alive and righT, Though no one knows They're There. And Thus They'll fighT for ages on, Till warships sail no more, Amid The boiIer's mighTy heaT, and The Turbine's hellish roar. So when you see a ship pull ouT. To meeT a warlike foe, Remember fainTly if you can, "THE MEN WHO SAIL BELOW." AuThor Unknown TTQTN 1 -, .N ll! XL, 1 1-. gglllg? U if . Q 5 xg' XL' Ts ll T "ilu" .

In addition to the movement of personnel and cargo, motor transport platoon further carries the capability to transport bulk water and fuel, motor vehicle mechanics giving motor transport platoon the capability of performing all organizational maintenance. Motor transport platoon spent long arduous hours in the form of motor transport operations, vehicle maintenance and unit training in preparation for LFGF 1-90. The payoff in the end was a challenging and very successful deployment period and the right to wear the title "America's Platoon." To Whom it may concern, that might mean you. There is much to be said about truck platoon's crew. We have our problems and we have our goals, but as far as being the best, hell everyone knows. .At sea or land it's been said, "If trucks can't do it no one can". So I'm telling you all as I end it here the year 1990 is still truck's year. Sincerely, Trucks RO11!!
