BIRTH 0F A SHIP Like all Creations of man a ship is molded of his blood and sweat g hut before his labor he has used his imagination eye of design, and engineering knowhow. Many days and 3 months are spent pouring over ideas, designs, and SO fOItl1- A Ship is not built in a day, or a month, or even a year. Tliousancls upon thousands of man hours must be spent on just paperwork alone. Every man concerned with the design of a ship works every minute of the working day, and sometimes beyond, with slide rule in hand or mind always looking for the answer to every "what ifn that arises during the construction period. These were only a few of the problems confronting the builders when MARS was first visualized by Navy men. lt was one thing to build a ship for one type of job, but here was one that must do three, so the problem was only tripled. MARS and her sisters were to be mobile supply depots, carrying ship and aircraft repair parts, food stuffs, clothing, and sundries for the day to day needs of the men in the Heet. Many months of trial and error over blueprints were spent before the day of keel laying arrived. On May 9, 1961, the Bureau of Ships, Department of the Navy awarded a contract to National Steel and Shipbuilding of San Diego, California to build two ships of a complete and revolutionary design and concept. The first to have it's keel laid was the USS MARS CAPS-lj . On the following pages, the birth of MARS takes place. Many of us did not become acquainted with her until after her baptism. For those who have wondered what she looked like from the start, we present the following pages of pictorial history
