NORTH ATLANTIC 1981 The Ship ' s Seal of the USS MILWAUKEE (AOR-2) depicts the mission of this replenishment oiler as " Service to the Fleet. " Services are shown by the Helicopter (vertical replenishment); by the outrigger and refueling hose for pumping diesel and aviation fuel; by the dry cargo net for transfer of cargo; and the missile, representative of another service provided to other ships at sea. It is a long standing tradition with MILWAUKEE to provide Proud and Professional service to the Fleet. USS MILWAUKEE (AOR-2), the fourth ship to bear the name, was built by the Quincy Division of General Dynamics and was commissioned on 1 November 1969 at Boston Naval Ship yard, Boston, MA. Her keel had been laid three years earlier on 29 November 1966. Following a fitting out period, MILWAUKEE entered her homeport of Newport, Rl on 21 January 1970. On February she left Newport for a two month operational training and shakedown cruise cruise in the Caribbean, returning to Boston Naval Shipyard for a three month post-shakedown availability period in April, 1970. From April 1970 through 1977, MILWAUKEE participated in four Mediterranean cruises. During July and August 1974, she was engaged in support of the Cypress evacuation, and in July 1976 helped support the evacuation of Americans from Lebanon. In August of that year MILWAUKEE transferred the precious Tutankahmun artifacts from the Egyptian government in Alexandria to Naples, Italy. From late January 1977 through the end of February, MILWAUKEE provided services to Task Force 21 in the Caribbean for READEX 1-78. A total of 126 ships were serviced alongside during the six week long cruise. In March and April 1978 the Ship was in Baltimore, MD for restricted availability. Following in June, MIL- WAUKEE conducted Selected Refresher training at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. In July 1978, MILWAUKEE successfully completed her third consecutive Operational Propulsion Plant Examination. Two weeks of August were spent supporting fleet units involved in COMPTUEX 4-78 in the Caribbean. During September, MILWAUKEE was preparing for her upcoming Mediterran- ean deployment which commenced 3 October 1978. While in the Mediterranean, MILWAUKEE provided services to units of the Sixth Fleet. While in the Mediterranean, MILWAUKEE visited such ports as Genoa, Italy; Valencia and Barcelona, Spain; Kalamata, Greece and the most interesting port of the deployment, Dubrovnik, Yugoslavia. Dubrovnik was especially interesting since few U.S. ships visit this communist country. MILWAUKEE returned to Norfolk on 4 April 1978, completing the Mediterranean deployment with 150 successful alongside replenishments. In May 1979, MILWAUKEE passed its recertification Inspection for Second Fleet Operations. In July, MILWAUKEE participated in READEX 2-79. This started as a routine exercise in the Caribbean with a port visit at St. Thomas, but ended in MILWAUKEE being extended approximately 10 days with a trip through the Panama Canal to participate in a Joint Chiefs of Staff contingency operation off the coast of Nicaraugua. MILWAUKEE returned home via the Panama Canal on 5 August 1979. In October 1979, MILWAUKEE returned to the Caribbean for operations with the USS FORRESTAL. After returning to Norfolk on 19 October, the ship commenced preparations for a highly successful inspection by the Board of Inspection and Survey. During the competitive year of 1979, MILWAUKEE was awarded the CIC " E " (3rd Award) and Damage Control " D C " (1st Award) for demonstrating excellence in these areas. MILWAUKEE was also cited as the top AOR in the Atlantic Fleet for Fiscal Year 1979 by Commander Service Group Two. In 1980, MILWAUKEE received several awards, formost of which was the Battle Efficiency " E. " The other awards were: the Communications " C " (4th Award) the CIC " E " (4th Award), the Deck " D " (3rd Award), the Damage Control " D C " (2nd Award and the Engineering " E. " During her ten month overhaul period in the Brooklyn Naval Shipyards, MILWAUKEE received major modifications to her superstructure which included the installation of two specially designed winch decks and a series of prototype Navy Standard Winches, giving her the most up-to-aate underway replenishment gear of any ship in the fleet. Following her year period, MILWAUKEE underwent four weeks of Refresher Training at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba during June and July of 1981. Her overall average score for REFTRA was an excellent. On 20 August, MILWAUKEE sorteed for the North Atlantic, to participate in NATO exercise Ocean Venture. Captain Donald A.

Trondhiem, Norway was the MILWAUKEE ' S first port of the North Atlantic Cruise. A quiet town, Trondhiem is also the occasional residence of Norway ' s King Olaf. In ancient times, its fjord was a haven for Viking Longboats. Today, the Viking spirit is alive in Trondhiem. It is expressed through the fierce pride Norwegians have for their Viking ancestors. They are still people of the sea and made the sailors of the MILWAUKEE welcome in their city. BM3 Howard Urquhart buys hi s 16th hamburger from this street corner stand in Trondhiem. " This is only my third hamburger. Really, honest, " said Urquhart. QMSN Dave Dexter takes a break during the long Sea and Anchor detail necessary for the navigation of Trondhiem ' s fjord. Seamen Tom Classmeyer, Craig Walls and Billy Kenney search tor an open bar on Sunday. Although few stores were open, and the blue laws were tough, they did find one. But it didn ' t sell Old Milwaukee beer so they left. This river is Trondhiems heart. Because it is a perfect natural harbor and located deep within a winding fjord, it began as a base for Viking raiders. It developed into a leading port, and at one time helped bring Trondhiem to the position of capitol of Norway. Although the river is no longer used as a major harbor, it is lined with businesses and warehouses, and stands as a living link between the people of Trondhiem and their roots.

" He don ' t talk much, but he ' s easy to get along with, " commented Novak, LOWER LEFT - YNl John Norris and sidekick RPSN Tank White hit the streets of Trondhiem. " It ' s not just a job, its an adventure, " the dynamic duo were heard to say before taking off for hamburgers. LOWER RIGHT - HM1 Don MacNaughton and BM1 Norm Depot sight seeing in Trondhiem. The Trondhiem fjord was wet and misty the day MILWAUKEE pulled in. During the trip up the fjord, the MILWAUKEE was often swathed in rainbows. At one point a rainbow curved over the bow of the ship and seemed to travel with us for several miles. It was quite a welcome after three weeks at sea.

Over 200 years old, the Navy ' s traditions are carried on b y MILWAUKEE sailors and others in today ' s modern Navy. AND REENLISTMENTS Even during the heavy schedule of the North Atlantic, there was always time for a reenlistment ceremony. At right, RM1 Collins is reenlisted by CDR Arey in a helo over the Baltic Sea. Below, BMC Studds extends his 26 year Navy career by four more. Other reenlistments included MM3 Cerceo and SKI Blancaflor. ROTTERDAM Rotterdam, the Netherlands, the world ' s largest free port, was the MILWAUKEE ' S second liberty port. MILWAUKEE became one of hundreds of ships that pull in and out of Rotterdam daily. Completely leveled by German bombs during World War II, Rotterdam was literally rebuilt after the war. Home to a culture hundreds of years old, Rotterdam is a sparkling city of glass, concrete and steel. Her streets are lined with stores and houses, and her people are generally friendly and open towards visitors in their country. Although Dutch is the national language, English, French and German are largely understood. A view of one of the many canals criss-crossing Amsterdam. A center of World travelers, the city has people from all over the world, many of them making their homes in boats along the canals. The Netherlands, otherwise known as Holland, is a country bound in contradica- tions. On one hand, it is an old country, thick with customs and traditions ihal stretch back hundreds of years. On the other hand, it is a country dependent on high technology for its national income. The differences between Rotterdam and her sister city Amsterdam show these contradic- tions. Where as Rotterdam was leveled in World War II, Amsterdam survived largely uns- cathed. Many features of Amsterdam are much the same now as they have been for centuries. Amsterdam is a marvel of city planning. At one time, Amste rdam was to the world what Rotterdam is today. The city is built around a series of five pentagonal canals which run evenly throughout the city. In the years when merchant vessels were smaller and made of wood, instead of docking at a warf or pier in a harbor, the vessels could pull right into the center of the city. Getting out and exploring the cities Rotterdam and Amsterdam is an experience that few MILWAUKEE men will ever forget. EN3 Dean Swisher and OSSN T. ].

There were no casualties, except for hangovers the next day. Chiefs Lawlor, Oinonen and Williams cruise through Rotterdam. STEEL BEACH PICNIC Can you feel it? One break during the North Atlantic Cruise came on our way back to Norfolk with the Steel Beach Picnic. Dining on gourmet quisine (charcoaled hamburgers and hotdogs, with plenty of free soda) the MILWAUKEE ' S port helo hanger hosted such world renowned greats as Michael (Cornbread) Jackson, the pink striped-punk folk of RMS Carrigan and Johnson and " We ' re Not Milwaukee ' s Finest, But We ' re Not Bad Band. " f- ' i LT Coulbourne was Master of Ceremonies for this gala event. Most of the crew gathered on the flight deck for an afternoon of basketball, hotdogs, entertainment and sun. The main attraction of the afternoon was the gong show. It was kicked off by the punk-blues fusion of the Pink Stripe Band- RM2 Johnson on harmonica and RM3 Carrigan on guitar. Following the radical radio men, Seaman Alonzo Howard performed two Michael Jackson hits - and was mobbed by fans afterwards. The show ' s final act was an original song composed and performed by " We ' re Not Milwaukee ' s Finest, But We ' re Not Bad Band " . The song " Homeward Bound " was a smash hit.

WILHELMSHAVEN, GERMANY in our third port of call, Wilhelmshaven, Germany, MILWAUKEE received an especially warm welcome. Wilhelmshaven and Norfolk are sister cities; they participate in a very active cultural exchange program. Both have large Naval Bases, military populations, and welcome visitors from all over the world. Wilhelmshaven ' s German-American Society hosted a party for the Officers and Crew of MILWAUKEE. Their warm reception was much appreciated by all. ABOVE - DMSN Mull charms a pair of lovely German ladies. RIGHT - One of the rides offered at the carnival that visited Wilhelmshaven during the October fest. Although the cities of Wilhelmshaven and Rotterdam bore little resemblance, the Northwest coast of Germany and the coast of Holland are similar in many ways. Windmills dotted the countryside around Wilhelmshaven, keeping the reclaimed lands free from sea water. Because Germany has so little coastline, Wilhelmshaven is of crucial importance to Germany ' s Navy. The homeport of German destroyers, frigates and patrol boats, Wilhelm- shaven is a bustling center of naval activity for the entire North Atlantic. Wilhelmshaven has been a naval center for a long time, so sailors are a common sight to most Wilhelmshaven residents. When MILWAUKEE arrived, a town fair was just getting underway. The main streets of Wilhelmshaven were filled with food and beer stands, vendors, games and rides. The streets were filled with people, and most MILWAUKEE sailors blended right into the flow. Most MILWAUKEE men enjoyed the charms of Wilhelmshaven. The warmth and hospitality of the people, the comradery of the German sailors and the good german beer made for truly excellent liberty.

The twin towers of Oslo ' s city hall lie at the end of a 90 mile long fjord and were a welcome sight to the liberty boats pulling into Oslo ' s fleet landing. OSLO MriWAUKEE sailors such as PNSN Al Pogue led efforts to strengthen international relations at a personal level. Of all the ports MILWAUKEE visited, the most vivid memories will be those of Oslo, Norway. In Oslo, everyone who went ashore had a different tale to tell. For most, the city was a rich and exciting experience. From the park surrounding the King ' s Palace at one end of the city to Akerhaus Castle at the other, Oslo was a continous feast of new sights, people and ideas. Oslo is the capitol of Norway and the permanent residence of Norway pa- triarch. King Olaf. It was the sight of underground resistance during the Nazi occupation during World War II. Olso ' s 90 mile fjord was the sight of a pitched battle between ship ' s of the German Navy and Norwegian shore defenses. The American Embassy in Oslo was very kind in hosting several dances for the ship. The girls of the SINSEN College near Olso attended. If 1 W _ k : ' K ' ITi ■ J jH ' " ■ ■ The city of Olso wdb compact and well organized, with most of the cities many shops, museums and Darks easily accesible by foot or subway.

Both in Trondheim and Oslo, Norwegians were proud of their Viking Ancestry and took pleasure in sharing their culture with visitors. Although the Norwegians were not as outgoing as many of the Eur- opeans MILWAUKEE sailors met during the cruise, they were very sentimental and friendships developed quickly.
