» i - r DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF SNOM DAVID SCOTT SWANK FEBRUARY 20, 1964 . . . SEPTEMBER 24, 1984 Ingalls Shipbuilding Company ' s hull number 580 was laid in August 1953 at Pascagoula. Mississippi. Number 580 was commissioned in May 1955 as the U.S.S. GLACIER and was homeported in Boston. Named for Glacier Bay, Alaska, the ship became the largest and most powerful icebreaker in the US. fleet. The GLACIER held her shakedown cruise enroute to participation in the first Operation Deep Freeze during which she served as Admiral Byrd ' s flagship and discovered the largest iceberg ever recorded. Antarctic service became an annual event as the GLACIER cut channels for resupply ships, supported remote stations, and made meteorological and oceanographic observations. In June of 1966. the GLACIER received a coat of white paint and became the Coast Guard Cutter GLACIER. With this transfer in service she was transferred in homeport to Long Beach. Her heavy armament was removed and a great deal of scientific equipment installed. GLACIER ' S string of continuous Antarctic de- ployment was broken in 1970, but in thirty years of service she has sailed in support of Operation Deep Freeze twenty-seven times. Her record of service includes not only Antarctic trips, but numerous deployments to the East and West Arctic Oceans. Proud in her history and capabilities. GLACIER ' S motto. " Follow Me " marks her for the leader she is. For 27 of the past 30 years GLACIER ' S mission has been to support the scientific colonies expeditions in the Antarctic regions. For most of those years GLACIER met or exceeded all expectations. DF 85 was no exception. " Big Red " successfully completed every one of her assigned missions. The degree of success for most of the goals left the scientists on board ecstatic. The accomplishments of DF 85 are the reflection of the drive determination of the crew to get the job done. They are all the more admirable significant in that they followed hard on the heels of a very demanding Major Maintenance Availability; and immediately followed a mentally and physically exhausting Refresher training. This year GLACIER was charged with helping find rookeries and determine population densities of several species of birds in the Antarctic Penninsula area - and searching tor Krill in the same area. These completed, GLACIER began seismic, coring, and diatom studies from the South Orl ney islands in the South Atlantic ocean all the way to the South end of Pine Island Bay in the Amundsen sea. This marked the first time in history any vessel had made it to the south end of Pine Island Bay. An additional benefit for the scientists came when 2 people from GLACIER became the only humans ever to set foot on Pine Island glacier at the south end of the bay. Completion of work in the ice did not mean completion of our mission. Enroute home we had 2 more tasks to complete. Air water samples were taken at intervals from Punta Arenas, Chile to Panama checking on the levels of Radioactivity. From Fortaleza, Brazil to Puerto Vallarto, Mexico GLACIER conducted transit and active Law Enforcement patrols working actively with the Panamanian Costa Rican governments. The patrol results included over 100 sighting reports and three boardings. When GLACIER made her triumphant return to Long Beach on April 5. 1985, with one of the most successful Deep Freezes ever under her belt, the crew could still not relax. For they had to get families household goods vehicles ready tor the move of homeports to Portland, Oregon. Though the 27,000-odd-mile journey at times seemed long and arduous - it was completed in an enthusiastic vein - an air of " mission accomplished " pervaded the minds and could be seen in the eyes of all on board even before a particular task was undertaken. We knew we would succeed where others had not -would meet all challenges no matter the odds. The words " can ' t " and " maybe " were nearly non-existent on board GLACIER in Deep Freeze 85. ■-■. -S.-. V.V.-S.. ' ' 1 ■■■ r x ' «. Captain Hewel is married to the former Roxie McMahon of Morgantown. NC and has two grown children, John and Lisa. He has had many varied and demanding assignments since joining the Coast Guard. Some of the more interesting and challenging include CO Coast Guard Loran Station Ulithi Atoll in the Caroline Islands, XO USCGC MESQUITE, CO USCGC BASSWOOD, CO USCGC NORTHWIND, and XO USCGC GLACIER. He has also served as Chief, Ice Operations and Chief Marine Science Division. A veteran of several Artie and Anarctic deployments, he is well qualified to lead the crew of GLACIER on this expedition. CAPTAIN WILLIAM P. HEWEL " GLACIER is a great ship, for over 20 years, starting with Deep Freeze I, GLACIER was the United States most powerful icebreaker and the mainstay of our Antarctic program. I feel even today GLACIER is the premier command in the Coast Guard, an effective and dependable polar veteran with exceptional science support facilities and the largest personnel complement of any cutter. And this crew may also be the most talented and hardest working that I ' ve ever had the p rivilege of serving with. This deployment has been, for all hands, the culmination of a lot of hard work, living with inconvenience, and learning by doing. During refresher training it became apparent that we had the necessary professionalism, leadership and spirit. I was excited to see our many capable individuals mold themselves into effective shipboard teams. Now this Antarctic deployment has provided the proper seasoning and esprit de corps. I ' ll never forget the pride I felt when one of the veteran scientist told me that he ' d been on many oceanographic vessels, but had never experienced the friendliness and cooperation that he had experienced on GLACIER. " Definite Olympic material Welcoming Admiral Schubert on our return to Long Beach LCDR PAUL L. HAGSTROM LCDR Hagstrom came to the GLACIER In ttie summer of 1984 during the MMA period. He came from the Eighth District where he was Chief of the Naval Engineering Branch. Three afloat tours, graduate school and a spell at Headquarters round out his Coast Guard career. Deep Freeze ' 85 marked his first Anarctic deployment. The Commander resides in Irvine, CA with his wife Cathy and his children Christine and Jeffrey. He has been selected for Commander and will be promoted In the summer of 1985. " This crew has exceeded all reasonable expectations In preparing for and completing our participation in Deep Freeze ' 85. Having accomplished so much with a newly formed crew, the possibilities for Deep Freeze ' 86 appear to be endless. We should all be proud of our contributions to returning " Big Red " to polar service. " i»jiniii Is it really all that serious J Hey Buddy. Where can I get a suit like that? Sea Chanty When cuttermen they praise their ships We always say them nay. The finest is the breaker That was named for Glacier Bay. We ain ' t afraid of snow nor ice, No more of heavy seas. What if we stove her in a mite We ' ll pipe now duty D.C. With Captain Hewel at the conn She plows Antarctic seas. Now send the message loud and clear, You others " Follow Me! " So cheer up me lads, Let your courage never fail. While the bonny ship the GLACIER Goes ice breakin ' with the whales. So cheer up me boys. Let your courage never fail, While the bonny ship the GLACIER Goes ice breakin ' with the whales And when we go ashore again We ' ll go upon a spree. We ' ll spend our wages hard and fast And then go back to sea. f f Now GLACIER is the finest ship To ever break the ice. And if we don ' t get through at first We ' ll back and ram all night We ' ll make the ale-house for to ring, Our glasses raised on high. And all the girls in Portland, For to sing 0-hush-abye. We ' ll send the helos out ahead To scout and find the way. Then go where no ship s been before Into Pine Island Bay. So cheer up me boys, Let your courage never fail. While the bonny ship the GLACIER Goes ice breakin ' with the whales. Now raise your glass to absent friends, Wherever they may be. We never will forget them While GLACIER sails the seas. LCDR BARRY CAPELLI Engineer Officer The department had an exceptionally suc- cessful Deep Freeze which included excellent evaluations and scores at Refresher Training, highly reliable operation of the propulsion plant in and out of the ice, excellent hotel service and the first successful completion of a full power trial in 29 years. The consistently high performance of the entire department in preparing for, and carrying out, this Deep Freeze set a major landmark in the history of USCGC GLACIER. r :ir ' LT. Scott Glover AEO Eng.

He assumed it meant the fire had flared up when really it meant " set the reflash watch. " Dennis starts yelling " REFLASH " , the observer cannot explain over the engine noise and just keeps pointing to " REFLASH " . Meanwhile, Dennis keeps on yelling. In exasperation, the observer gives the crazy sign and points to Dennis (hoping everyone would see there was a misunderstanding and relax). But FN Anderson knows what to do with a crazy. He arm bars Dennis and much to Dennis ' s shock, duck walks him out of the engine room.

Carr STAND-ASIDE It has been my pleasure to have the association with a tremendous group of men and women t hat has made up GLACIER ' S Deck Department during Deep Freeze ' 85. What was a previously untested group of Petty Officers and Seamen became seasoned sailors who have every right to be proud of their accomplishments. Their hard work and enthusiasm brought new life and vitality to GLACIER. From helmsman and lookout to crane operator, and tie-down team they learned and trained to become confident and responsible in carrying out the numerous tasks required of them. As a result, they met or exceeded every challenge or operational commitment during the deployment and helped to ensure that Deep Freeze ' 85 became a total success. I feel that their greatest achievement was earning the PACAREA " E " for Seamanship during Refresher Training in San Diego. It was the culmination of a tremendous effort that began with the remanning of GLACIER and continued through a demanding yard period. For which, I am both proud and grateful. The " Deckles ' have done well for GLACIER and for themselves. Deep Freeze 85 has become firmly entrenched in my memory. I sincerely hope their memories are as deep and pleasing as mine. I have but one final word for the Deck Department - Thanks. BMC Brent A. Mulford Chief No-Slack B.B.A BM1 Diane M.

Two real hams Your mailmen In the eighteen long arduous months since return from DF ' 83, GLA- CIER, though manned by little more than a skeleton crew, underwent major refit- ting. t luch of the ship was uninhab- itable, so for much of the yard period, the crew was berthed off the ship with the exception of the duty section on watch. 18 months seems a long time until the amount of work to be completed in that time IS taken into account. The 10 main engines and all ships service generators had to be rebuilt as well as boilers, cranes and winches. One by one, the pieces came together. Slowly, the GLA- CIER was remanned to full complement. Finishing touches were loaded, all was made ready. Time for Reftra and DF ' 85.

This time Military Law enforcement was added to the list. GLACIER with the help of LT Young, GM1 Vinson, and QM2 Delaney from the Pacarea law enforcement team: rapidly formed and trained intelligence and boarding teams. GLACIER completed a SIX day combined patrol with Panamanian Costa Rican patrol boats. Coupled with 11 day transit patrol prior to Panama, GLACIER sent over 100 sighting reports and completed 4 boardings. Members of the intelligence and boarding teams are listed below.

Tow atter tow brought forth only dismal results. All efforts seemed futile until the last day. Mr. (Stand-aside) Carr took command of the situation. After a few orders to the helm and lookout, GLACIER took off. Soon a flock of birds were spotted. Steadily we crept up on them, threw the nets over the side and commenced a serious attempt towing krill. Victory was ours as the krill swarmed into our trap. Then appareni disaster struck. The net had ruptured from the struggle with the Krill. Fortunately enough was saved for the scientists. The hunt was declared a success anc GLACIER was again the victor.

Science support tasks included deployment of field parties, trawling operations for collec- tion of specimens and survey work on local bird communi- ties. In addition, the crew greatly enhanced the knowledge of local waters, surveying and sounding a number of previously uncharted areas. The competence of the ASB crew ensured that the ASB lost minimal time due to mechanical difficulties. In addition to their routine duties, the crew readily assisted in collateral Station duties as required. We would like to commend the ASB crew for their outstanding performance. We would welcome the oppor- tunity to work with any or all of them during future seasons. Signed Donald D. Wiggins, Resident Manager, Langdon B.

With almost 500,000 sq. mi. and approximately 18 million inhabitants, Peru is the third largest country in South America. It was a major portion of the Incan Empire. The Incas were advanced engineers; communications over an empire that stretched 3,000 miles N. to S. were maintained by extensive roads, and fiber cable sus- pension bridges over the sheer An- dean gorges. Incan architects also constructed some of the world ' s finest stone structures. Many of GLACIER ' S crewmembers took advantage of an organized tour to one of these beauti- ful cities in the " Sierra " of the Andes - Machu Picchu. The conquistador Pizzaro de- stroyed the Incan Empire, leading to Spanish rule until the revolutions led by Bolivar and San Martin (1820- 1824). Callao is a port city located about 10 mi. NW of Lima. It offered many of the crew their first taste of S. American culture - along with the opportunity to purchase wood, silver, llama, and alpaca. Callao also served to increase the vocabulary of GLACIER crew members with such native Peruvian phrases as: " Pure baby alpaca " , and, " You buy, my friend? You buy? " 64 Peru 65 We arrived for our second port call in Valparai- so, Chile, on Nov. 20. Most of the crew spent their time sprawling on the beach in Vina Del Mar. Some took the day tour to Santiago, the capital of Chile some 70 miles inland. The rest contented them- selves with the more epicurean delights to be found among the closely built, a nd very weather- beaten houses of Valparaiso itself. Founded in 1536 by Viego De Almagro, Valparaiso was already inhabited by the Changos, an Indian tribe that lived off the sea and traveled the shores in canoes made of sea lion skins. The port lived a rather dull life until English privateers started to plunder the South American coast line in attacks against the Spanish throne. A lot of Chilean firsts happened in Valparaiso. The first Chilean newspaper in 1811, the first battle of Chile ' s war of independence in 1813, Chile ' s first Naval Squadron sailed from here in 1818. The first steam- ship to sail the Pacific was launched from Valparaiso in 1822. Her sister city, Vina Del Mar, was founded about 10 miles to the north in 1874 from the Hacienda of a wealthy port resident. It has become popular with tourists and the nicer hotels are in this section - also the homes of the more affluent Chileans. Ancient and modern worlds coexist. 66 67 PUNTA ARENAS Punta Arenas, the southernmost city in the world, sits on the western shore of the Strait of IVIagellan. Originally a penal colony, in 1847 the town was founded to establish Chile ' s claim to the Strait of Magellan. This is still its major function. It was a coaling station for ships until the opening of the Panama Canal. It was both the dullest and yet most looked forward to port; being the last outpost of civilization between us and the ice. Shopping was minimal; the major bargains were hand knit wool scarves and hats saying " Punta Arenas. Sold from a families living room and made to order. A few of our hardier naturalists and joggers took off for adventure in the rolling scrub hills and stiff refreshing breeze surrounding the town. Meanwhile, most of us headed for the local watering hole " Cabo de Hornas " where we enjoyed the luxury of real beds, steaks and beer. Punta Arenas was basically bland and uninteresting offering only a chance for us to escape our 310ft. home for a stretch of the legs and soul. The only noteworthy event was the tragic nonarrival of our mail. Many futile hours by our Post Office and Supply personnel were spent waiting at the small airport awaiting the mail which never came. However, all agreed it was one of the friendliest if most spartan airports they ' d ever had a chance to visit. Overall, we were quite glad to bid a final farewell to this port of three visits and head north in search of more luxurious ports and the mail, which was still flying aimlessly about the Americas. 68 PALMER .. ■ ' 1 STATION 69 ISLAND Entering Pine Island Bay and continuing all the way to the South end, past the 75th parrallel was perhaps GLACIER ' S greatest achievement of DF 85 ' . No ship had ever made the last 30 NM to the end, though the Burton Island gave it a good try in 1975. The charts we carried in were very rough and incomplete due to lack of information (no depths were shown and the positions of land and glaciers were all estimated, inaccurately as we found out). Both the Bridge and CIC had an excellent, if hectic, time madly plotting corrections to our vague charts. The scientists were ecstatic, having finally gotten all the way in. Helo ops became a daily routine to find paths through the ice. Underneath our jubilation at exploring the unknown, fear lurked. Realistically, we were all alone in uncharted water with the end of the Antarctic shipping season rapidly closing in on us! Secretly all wondered: " Would GLACIER be forced to winter over? ' With our usual finesse we left Pine Island Bay to continue home with our morale intact. 70 GERLACHE STRAITS A desolate landscape of gray- green crags etched in with snow, twisting around the Antarctic Peninsu- la, it is filled with fjords and bays, many still known only to the Krill, whales, and birds that live there. The Gerlache Straits were the most scenic and awesome area in our tour of Antarc- tica - with its soaring cliffs, powerful glaciers, and silent sapphire depths. A dreamscape brought to earth by the practical business of Krill chasing and coring. 71 I N I C E V e SmMC T H E ICEBREAKING Glacier ' s ability to sail through fields of ice, cutting the way into frozen harbors and bays, makes all our Antarctic missions possible. Our ship was specifically designed for such maneuvers with her reinforced steel bow, 10 main diesel engines and wide rounded structure. Glacier doesn ' t actually cut through the ice. Rather, she charges bow first up on it where sheer massive weight cracks and crushes the floes, displacing ice into clear areas. In especially thick ice the " Backing and Ramming " method is employed. Basically the title is self descriptive. Glacier runs up and rams the piece of ice, where pressure from the ship weakens it, then she backs up and charges again, over and over. Beginning on 20 Jan 85 we employed this method for 17+ hours, in which we only moved 2 miles until we finally broke through to continue homewards. Helicopter support is very impor- tant to modern ice breaking especially in dense ice. The helos will fly ahead of the ship to scout our possible leads for us to follow, report the various concentrations of ice back to CIO where up to the minute ice charts are then drawn. Besides structural strength and modern equipment needed for ice breaking, the mental requirements of patience and perseverance are tremen- dous. Once again the crew of DF ' 85 triumphed over severe obstacles and danger using intelligence, skill, patience and humor. 73 ■ - r - , » J ; - " - ' ' ' m ' ■f rff[ The Betty Crocker award for culinary finesse goes to third class berthing for their outstanding efforts.

Civilization at last! 1 , £a. -4 J •-. .■r h Bi • _ a t s ■■ SEl Ba BS « Montevideo, Uruguay, known for its quality bargain leather goods and hospi- tality (Free beer, wine, or coffee while you shop!) was also one of the cleanest and safest South American cities we visited. Some crewmembers were fortu- nate enough to catch a glimpse of history in the making. For the first time in many years. Democracy was returned to Uruguay. According to one version of events, some months earlier, the military regime held a vote of confidence in which the people of Uruguay showed their utter lack thereof and freely elected a new and Democratic government into power. On our third night in, the military junta officially stepped down and literally rode out of town on their horses, to much singing, dancing, and flag-waving by the crowds of people who flooded the streets. Most crewmembers were fortu- nate enough to witness this " Demonstration for Democracy " while others actually joined in. Shopping, beaches, and a peaceful revolution . . . Montevideo certainly had something for everyone. 75 Situated on and between nu- merous mountains overlooking the Atlantic and the Baia de Gua- nabara, Rio de Janeiro was one of the most picturesque ports we visited. Arriving in the middle of " Carnival " made it one of the most exciting, too. There was something for everyone in Rio, from sightsee- ing (in the mountains and on the beaches) to shopping - from swimming to partying. Rio was settled by the Por- tuguese in the 1500 ' s and was Brazil ' s capital for many years. Brazil began booming when it was declared a republic in 1889. Coffee, rubber, and sugarcane were the principle products then, and Rio grew wealthy serving as the commercial and administrative center of the country. The city is still growing and has more than ten million residents in its greater metropolitan area. The cariocas (residents of Rio) exhibit an easy-going lifestyle. Many pursue the good life in one of Rio ' s eight beach communities, including Copacabana and Ipen- ema. During Carnival, Rio ' s Mardi Gras celebration, the city lets its hair down and goes wild for four days. Some said our stay was too short, others, anxious to be home, said it was too long. However, no matter what they felt, no one will forget Rio. RIO JANEIRO DE V; Our arrival in Fortaleza, Brazil, coincided with the opening of the Latin American bubble-gum rocl group " Menudo. " At times this made naviga- tion along the beach w ithout fear of imminent collision with a gaggle of euphoric 1 2 year-olds a near impossibili- ty. The rest of the times, the beaches and hotels provided a very tranquil escape from the rigors of 6 months ' work aboard ship. If you had had your fill of sedentary relaxation you could search for bargains in the maze of stalls in the frenetic " Mercado Central " This port of about 1 million people on the northeast corner of Brazil grew as a center for the export of sugar, carnuba wax, cotton, and salt. Today, lobsters and cashews are marketed world-wide, and are the most important sources of income. Still primarily a port facilities city - it is not a major tourist stop, though many fine hotels exist. With the right PR man, Fortaleza could easily become the Acapuico of South America. 78 Naval Station Panama Canal was a welcome stop after two weeks of law enforcement in the not-so-sunny Carri- bean and entertaining over 100 guests during the canal transit. The station is located across the canal from the city of Panama, capital of the country and home to over half-a- million people. Panama ' s history is as colorful as its streets. Long an interna- tional crossroads, even before the con- struction of the canal, Panama has seen conquistadores, pirates, gold-miners, and canal-builders. Although the canal zone has be- longed to Panama since 1979, the United States retains management until 2000. There is still a strong American influence there, and English is frequently heard, which made many of the crew feel at home. Mooring at the station gave many people the opportunity to take advantage of the exchanges at the many U.S. military bases in the area where they shopped for a " touch of home. " Some of the crew enjoyed the casinos and the nightlife Panama offered. How- ever, everyone was glad to be in sight of the Pacific, the same ocean that washed the shores of California. As relaxing as Panama was, it was good to begin the final drive home. 79 p u E R T O 80 V A L L A R T A Families and friends, wlio couldn ' t wait, greet us as we pull into Puerto Vallarta Hells angels ride again Up up and away didn ' t mean it! I was only joking! Puerto Vallarta, our last and most luxurious port before home, had every accommodation a bour- geois tourist could desire; from deep-sea fishing and parasailing, to oceanside bar service at your own beach towel. While most of us lazed poolside with exotic drinks (Coco-Locos, pineapple- surprises, and the ol ' standby: Margarita) - the more adventurous rented mopeds and Jeeps to tour the city itself, stopping at the famous " Carlos O ' Brian " for " Build your own taco ' - " Chicos ' , with its grass hut restaurant and waterfall - or the " Lion ' s Den " where live cubs prowled among the tables. For most of us, Puerto Val- larta was a relaxed deprogram- ming for reentry into America. The streets were filled with Americans and Canadians, menus were in English, and the prices were the highest yet for any port ($1 to $20 for a meal!). Some of our friends and family were there to vacation with the crew, some even continued on to Long Beach with us. Obviously, we were near home. That, per- haps, was the very best part of all. 81 Lip-Synch And Air Guitar A creative outlet for frus- trated shower singers and hid- den musicians, that offered them an audience and guaran- teed us quality music.

" Schuler ' s last words, " Anybody want my beer? " ICE ; PARTY 85 89 18 January 1985 was one of our most celebrated holidays throughout the trip. " Why? " do I hear you asking yourselves. Be- cause, on that date at around 1 300, we had officially completed half of a 6-month trip. " From here on in, it ' s all downhill. ' Glacier left Long Beach 7 October 1984 and wouldn ' t arrive home again until 5 April 1985. We had left Pine Island Bay 3 days before and were en- route to Palmer Station via Mar- guerite Bay but had not yet " officially ' been homeward bound until Hump Day. That is why Hump Day IS the second most important date of the trip. The tree is lit, the sea is calm, ship ' s work was finished early today. Many of us gather on the messdeck, partly to com- fort each other, partly to cele- brate with each other. It is both a solemn and a joyous occasion. It is Christmas Eve, and at 6PM many of us are gathered around the Christmas tree singing car- ols. The solemnity of the day arises from us not being with our families, the joy comes from being able to celebrate this time of the year with friends who care and share the feeling of separa- tion. 90 Near King George Island we start our new year.

Bedlam erupts when the opening whistle is blown and before it is over, only one team can emerge the victor.

When the final whistle was blown, EMs had emerged as the undisputed champions of the 1st annual Glacier Bowl. " On your mark, get set ... GROW! " The GLACIER beard-growing contest was on! Contes- tants spent minutes; some, hours, training and preparing for the start of this contest. Preparation for some included shaving 2 or 3 times in one day to stimulate growth to find out who among the crew was the closest throwback to our primordial ancestors. Starting 21 December, the contest raged until shortly before arriving in Montevideo. Awards were given for: thickest, thinnest, shaggi- est, and scroungiest beards to be judged by the females.

You are most heartily commended for your outstand- ing performance of duty and your extensive contri- butions to the morale, welfare, and well being of your shipmates onboard USCGC GLACIER. During this deployment you have been a vocal and enthusiastic member of the Morale Committee. You voluntarily organized numerous morale events including the Firehose and Fender fight. Skit Night, Impersonation Night and several Pizza Night shows. Your musical contributions made the religious services onboard more meaningful and enjoyable to all that attended. As a member of the Arctic Survey Boat (ASB) crew you spent nearly two months of the deployment at Palmer Station. Your performance of duty and contributions to morale at this station were the subject of several letters and comments from the scientists at Palmer Station. Your attitude, profes- sionalism, and dedication to improving the quality of life onboard has been noted by your fellow shipmates, supervisors and officers and is deeply appreciated by all. I hope that you will take great pride in realizing that your contributions have made GLACIER ' S long and ardous participation in Deep Freeze 85 ' more enjoyable and memorable for all onboard.
