The present day L ' SS MILWAUKEE was commissioned on 1 November 1969 at the Boston Naval shipyard as the sec- ond of the WICHITA CLASS replenishment oilers. During her first decade of service MILWAUKEE completed five Mediterranean deployments, three readiness exercises, evac- uated American citizens from Cyprus in 1974 and Lebanon in 1976. and transported the treasures of the ancient Egyp- tian KING TUTANKHAMUM to the United States. Throughout the next decade MILWAUKEE continued to provide excellent service to the fleet, completing two more Mediterrenean deployments by 1984. In 1985 she participat- ed in Unitas XXVI, a joint exercise between the United States and our South American allies, during which MIL- WAUKEE was the sole logistics support ship for TASK FORCE ONE-THREE-EIGHT. In 1987 MILWAUKEE again displayed her ability to sup- port our allies during EXERCISE OCEAN SAFARI in the North Atlantic, providing services to over eighty NATO ships form eleven nations. Transferring over 30 million gal- lons of fuel and 2000 tons of cargo in waters above Arctic Circle, MILWAUKEE earned the venerable " BLUE NOSE " Award. In 1988 MILWAUKEE completed a Mediterranean and Indian Ocean deployment in support of American Forces in the Persian Gulf. During this deployment MIU WAUKEE spent 108 consecutive days at sea demonstrating her unique ability to remain on station for extended periods of time. MILWAUKEE was honored in July 1989 by being selected to serve as host ship for the historic Soviet ship visit in Nor- folk, hosting the officers and crew of the Soviet Fleet replenishment oiler GASTANOV. In November 1989 MIL- WAUKEE distinguished herself during the Soviet Presiden- tial Summit in Malta where she provided boats and crew to assist in transporting dignitaries, security agents, and the press between USS BELKNAP and the Soviet Cruiser SLAVA. In April 1990 MILWAUKEE completed her ninth Mediter- ranean deployment and immediately redeployed in May to support the U.S. Coast Guard during a two month COl TER-NARCOTICS OPERATION in the Caribbean. Mil WAUKEE completed her fifth PMA overhaul in Decem- ber 1990 while OPERATION DESERT SHIELD was reach- ing its peak in the Persian Gulf. In keeping with her proud tradition. MILWAUKEE stood ready to deploy as OPERA- IION l)t SKRT SHIELD became OPERATION DESERT STORM. The ship ' s insignia is pattern after the official seal of the city of MILWAUKEE. The insignia has the ship ' s motto " SER- VICE " , imposed on the traditional Navy anchor. The four surrounding fields signify replenishment aspects of the ship. Above is the helicopter used in vertical replen- ishment. To the right are rigs for refueling, and to the left the weapons cargo. Below is the cargo net for transferring the multitude of dry cargo. the insignia is completed with the rope, chain and stars of I the official Navy seal. MISSION OF THE AOR The mission of replenishment ships in the U.S. Navy is to Drovide the Fleet with underway replenishment capabilities, ninimizing the Navy ' s need for dependence upon overseas jases which might be denied in the time of war, international ensions or changing political climates. The AOR is a multi-commodity vessel capable of providing •ustomers with a wide range of products that include: 7.2 mil- ion gallons of Navy distillate fuel used to power all non-nucle- ir Navy ships: jet aircraft fuel full range of high usage load list tnd deck load items; 450 tons of dry and frozen provisions; ind 600 tons of ammunition. In addition, with the ability to •arry over 1000 measured tons of fleet freight on her cargo ind main decks. Perhaps the most unique and valuable feature f this floating " Seven-Eleven " is to provide one-stop shop- )ing. By load adjusting with other single commodity fleet sup- ort ships such as AE ' s, AFS ' s or AO ' S, the AOR can literally e-supply an entire battle group by itself. Utilizing a combina- ion of alongside and vertical replenishment techniques, the iOR is capable of transferring over 750,000 gallons of fuel jid 250 measured tons of material per hour. The ability to pro- ide this wide range of services so quickly allows the individual inits of battle group to return to their primary mission in a ninimum amount of time. The AOR is a particularly valuable asset to the mobile logis- ics support force. It combines the functions of three special- jed ships and is fully capable of providing optimum support in variety of different environments. The AOR is capable of sus- ained speeds in excess of 20 knots and can operate indepen- .ently or as a unit of a fast replenishment task group.

The Signalmen aboard MILWAUKEE provide accurate and rapid communications with other ships in the Battle Group when within visual range. This form of communicating is accomplished in the following ways: FLASHING LIGHT - Morse Code by the flashing of lights on a 1 2 inch search light to formulate letters in the alphabet, FLAGHOIST - The raising of flags and pennants to pass tactical information and SEMAPHORE - Letters being formed by hand arm movements to spell words. Other means of communicating involve the use of INFRA-RED Flashing light (at night, only seen by the intend- ed recipient), and OMNIDIRECTIONAL (all directions) Flashing light, employing the use of a telegraph key (as in Morse Code) to blink lights on and off on the forward mast of the ship corresponding to letters of the alphabet.

But there ' s a place within the ship that legends fail to teach, where men toil and sweat red blood, where sunlight fails to reach. It ' s down below the water line, it takes a living toil, a hot metal living hell that sailors call the " Hole " . It houses engines run by steam that make the shafts go round. A place of noise and heat with blood of angry steam, and molten Gods without remorse, nightmares from a dream. Whose threat that from the fires roar, is like a living doubt that anv minute would with scorn, escape and crush you out. | Vhere turbines scream like tortured souls, alone and lost in ftiell as ordered from above somewhere, they answer every bell. The men who keep those fires lit and make the engines run and every hour of every day. they keep watch in hell. They are strangers to the world of light, and rarely see the sun. They have no time for God of man, no tolerance for fear. eir respect pays no living thing the tribute of their fear. For there ' s not much that a man 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 watch in hell. For if the fires ever fail, MILWAKEE useless shell. When we converge to have a war upon an angry sea, the men below just grimly smile at what their fate may be. They ' re locked in below like men doomed who hear no battle cry. It ' s well assumed that if we ' re hit. the men below will die. For every day ' s war down there when the gauges all read red. Six hun- dred pounds of heated steam can make you mighty dead. So if you ever write their sons or try to tell the tale, the very works world make you hear the fiery furnaces wait and people as general rule don ' t see these hardened souls. So little heard about this place that sailors call the " Hole " . But I can sing about this place, and try to make you see the hardened life of the men down there, cause one of them is me. I ' ve seen those sweat soaked Heroes fight, in superheated air to keep MILWAUKEE alive and right, though no one knows they ' re there. And thus they ' ll fight for ages on " till warships fight no more. Amid the boilers mighty thunder, and the tur- bines hellish roar. So when Milwaukee pulls out to meet a war- like foe, remember faintly, if you can, " THE MEN WHO SAIL BELOW " . ■ 41 0% Machinist ' s Mate (MM) ELECTRICAL DIVISION EM3 REEVES EMFN GRACE EMFN JOHNSON EMFN LEWIS EMFN OVERSTREET FN BAII.Y I Ml I S ICFA NESMTTH REPAIR DIVISION MR2 KESSLING DC2 YEAGER DCFN BRIDGES DCFN BUZARD OCFN CORBETT DCFN SAUCEDO DCFN SCHMIEDER FA KLESTA DECK DEPARTMENT Boatswain ' s Mate (BM; FIRST DIVISION First division operates and maintains oil equipment forward of the ship.

Vertrep is the movement of staged cargo from ship to ship bv an external hook on the helicopter. Det Six mover cargo to ships along side MILWAUKEE while taking fuel, or at a dis- tance while the customer was on station. With cargo stations rigged, vertrep complements the rate of cargo transfer to the customer. In some cases, depending on the quantity to be transferred, vertrep can eliminate the need for a cargo rig. Vertrep also provides the flexibility to get goods to cu stomers without having to come along side. Logistic missions involved the transfer of passengers, mail and cargo around the battle group. This w T as accomplished by either landing and loading cargo internally or by hoisting pas- sengers, mail and cargo for delivery to the proper destination. These missions were typicallv performed miles from the USS MILWAUKEE. The H-46 is also a first rate search and rescue platform. With our SAR aircrewmen, Det Six performed multiple searches for vessels in distress and downed aircraft. By mid point in our deployment Det six had flown over 570 hours, moved over 3 million pounds of cargo, 51,000 pounds of mail, hoisted 142 passengers and transported 1 192 others.

Fortunatch sin was able to complete hei yard period ahead of schedule and was thus part of the Atlantic Fleet Forces awaiting the tall to duty. Unfortunately, she had several false starts before finally being allowed to set sail. All of these factors weighed heavily on the crew and their loved ones but. in typical old Mil fashion, we stood read) to deploy at a moment ' s notice. That moment of deployment finall) (ame on 30 May 1991 at 0930 when she set sail from Pier 3 Norfolk, Virginia. As late would have it. a minor engineering casualty brought us back in that night for quick repairs and one last chance lor goodbyes. With the skill and speed we had come to expect, necessary ' repairs were effected and MILWAUKEE was ,, me and lor all underway for the MED 3-91 Cruise at 1830 June 1, 1991. 1 he tall of 1990 brought tragedy in the Middle East. Once again this volatile region became a hot bed of conflict when Saddam Hussein invaded the nation of Kuwait. Leaving a path of torture and destruction to its capital, Kuwait City. U.S. and Nato forces were called into action to defend this tiny country in " Opera- tion Desert Shield " . The build up of forces from 29 different nations forming the allied coalition reached a peak ol nvc! 50(1.(100 Hoops with an unprecedented ti Navy carrier groups including the Battle ships, USS WISCONSIN and USS MISSOURI. A total if 10S Naval ships were to be stationed in both the Persian Cull and Eastern Med Regions. It was only a matter of time before failed diplomatic attempts would lead to actu- al comb.it and " Operation Desert Storm " . The " Conflict in the Gulf " became the " Cult War " live on CNN at 1900 Eastern Standard time 17 January 1991 when President Bush announced to the world that " The Liberation of Kuwait has begun " . We watched as bombs fell relentlessly from the skies of Baghdad and felt chills as reporters giving live updates donned gas masks, as we ourselves had done during numerous general quarters drills. Only this time it was no drill. the war was teal and so were the lears. We all knew someone who was going to, or already in " The Cull " . The war continued for 45 days with only 100 hours of ground fighting orchestrated by the now infamous General " Stormin " Norman Schwarzkoff. The worlds fourth largest army lav in defeat after more than a month ot relentless aii strikes by coalition tones, less than seven months from ' Shield ' to " Storm " , twenty nme [raqui aircraft had been destroyed in air-to-air combat with no coalition loses. 300 air sorties daily bombed the elite republic an guards. Navv sorties totalled more than 3.500 from the six carriers. And more than 260 I omahawk ( i uise Missiles had been launched. With more than 60 enemy vessels sunk. Iraqi Naval operations, as well as the- rest ol Saddam Hussein ' s milii.uv mac hinerv and potential for future threat, had been devastated.
