The mechanics and technicians worked many long hours to keep the "bird"

provided tracking of assigned submarines, information on surface contacts,
personnel transport and an occasional photograph. Their presence also
helped crew moral with their mail runs. They were professionals and
quickly became true shipmates Our "Airdales" had a can-do attitude and
contributed to Elmer Montgomery"s reputation as a top operational asset to

One special way that
Montgomery Sailors took
advantage of our inport time in
Italy was to visit The Vatican.
We saw the splendor of Saint
Peters Basilica including works
of art by Michaelangelo and
other renown artists. We had
the privilege of an audience
with His Holiness, Pope John
Paul II and on Christmas Eve,
many of us attended Midnight
Mass said by the Pope. The
Vatican was a place of beauty,
love, and peace.

The contents of this book, its pictures and text,
represent the devotionof some 350 sailors serving
their country onboard USS ELMER
MONTGOMERY CFF-10825. It is a tribute to the
effort they put forth and produced to provide a
lifelong remembrance of a job Well done.
The making of a cruise book is not a small task.
As editor, I make a special mention of the men
pictured on this page. Their tireless efforts and
hours of labor made this book a reality.
