FURTHER DOWN THE COOPER RIVER STEAMED THE USS MOUNT BAKER (AE-34) SILHOUETTED AGAINST THE RISING SUN, AS SHE HEADED FOR THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA. IT WAS AGAIN TIME FOR THE " LOW COUNTRY EXPRESS " TO LEAVE CHARLESTON FOR FOREIGN LANDS HALFWAY AROUND THE WORLD. IN HER WAKE THE MOUNT BAKER LEFT LOVED ONES STANDING ON CHARLESTON ' S SUNNY BEACHES, BUT IN HER PATH AWAITED COUNTRIES AND EXPERIENCES UNIQUE TO A SAILORS LIFE. THE CRUISE WOULD BE ONE FILLED WITH NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR EVEN THE OLDEST OF " SALTS. " AS FOR THE NEW CREW MEMBERS, EVERY MILE WOULD PRESENT A LEARNING EXPERIENCE TO ENSURE THAT THEY RETURN WITH TALES AND MEMORIES OF THE 1983 MEDITERRANEAN INDIAN OCEAN DEPLOYMENT. DURING THE NEXT SIX MONTHS, THE CREW WOULD ENCOUNTER MANY EVENTS THAT WOULD MAKE THIS CRUISE MEMORABLE. AS AN EAST COAST SHIP, THE MOUNT BAKER LEFT AS A MEMBER OF THE SECOND FLEET. UPON ENTERING THE MEDITERRANEAN, THE CREW WILL COMPLETE ITS MISSION AS A SIXTH FLEET SHIP. AFTER COMPLETING AN EXHAUSTING SUEZ CANAL TRANSIT, WE WOULD BECOME A MEMBER OF THE SEVENTH FLEET, WHICH IS NORMALLY COMPRISED OF WEST COAST SHIPS. IT WOULD GIVE THE FINEST AE IN THE NAVY A CHANCE TO SHOW ALL THREE FLEETS HOW TO " DELIVER WITH CLASS. " THE " OLD SALTS " OF THE CREW WOULD BE ABLE TO LOOK FORWARD TO " CROSSING THE LINE " (EQUATOR). THIS EVENT WOULD GIVE THEM THE OPPORTUNITY TO CLEANSE THE SHIP OF ALL POLLYWOG " SLIME " IN THE TRADITIONAL " SHELLBACK " INITIATION. AS THE SITUATION INTENSIFIED IN BEIRUT, THE MOUNT BAKER CREW WORKED LONG HOURS AND ENDURED AN EVER-CHANGING SCHEDULE IN ORDER TO PROVIDE THE MARINES AND MULTI-NATIONAL FORCE WITH THE AMMUNITION AND SUPPLIES THEY NEEDED. IN THESE PAGES WE HAVE ATTEMPTED THE IMPOSSIBLE AND HAVE TRIED TO CAPTURE THE CREW ' S VOYAGE THROUGH HOSTILE AND FRIENDLY LANDS ALIKE. PICTURES ARE SUPPOSED TO BE WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS, BUT NO BOOK WILL EVER DO JUSTICE TO THE WORK AND EXPERIENCES THE CREW WENT THROUGH. THIS BOOK IS DEDICATED TO ALL THE CREW MEMBERS ON THIS, THE FINEST f IN THE NAVY, FOR THEIR WORK AND ENDLESS EFFORT HAVE EARNED THE " LOW COUNTRY EXPRESS " A MOST DESERVED MOTTO — " WE DELIVER WITH CLASS. " CAPTAIN D. L. HETHERINGTON This cruise book represents a snapshot of a portion of the life of a MOUNT BAKER sailor. Although the snapshot only represents the period from 17 May to 21 November 1983, it is a period of hard work and memories of a ship ' s deployment. This cruise book is dedicated to what makes a ship the best, the crew. The accomplishments of each and every crewmember during this deployment towards our mission have been nothing less than superb. Although our tasks were varied, each was completed with " class. " I also praise the wives and families of MOUNT BAKER for keeping the home fires burning and supporting us during this deployment. Your support was noticed and appreciated. Thank You! I, as Captain, have never sailed with a finer group of men and I am proud to be their Captain. I thank each member of MOUNT BAKER for their dogged determination and professionalism. Always " give it your best shot. " D. L. Hetherington CAPT USNR COMMANDING OFFICER USS MOUNT BAKER (AE-34) Donald L. Hetherington born and raised in Anaconda, Montana, is the son of Orin and Bernice Hetherington. He graduated from Montana State University in 1962 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Speech. He also holds a Master ' s Degree in Operations Research Management from the University of Arkansas. He entered Officer Candidate School, Newport, Rhode Island with class 53 in October 1962. Upon commissioning in March 1963 he reported to Staff COMCARDIV 17 and deployed to the Western Pacific on board the USS HORNET {CVS-12). Commander Hetherington has served as Executive Officer on board the USS RALEIGH (LPD-1) and other commands which include the Naval Reserve Readiness Command Region NINE, Millington, Tennessee; USS FORT FISHER (LSD-40); commanded the Naval Reserve Center, Colorado Springs, Colorado, and in addition was assigned to USS OKINAWA (LPH-3); Military Sealift Command, Pacific; CINC South, Naples, Italy; and ASW Group 3. Commander Hetherington reported to the USS MOUNT BAKER (AE-34) after a tour as Chief Staff Officer at Naval Reserve Readiness Command Region EIGHT, Jacksonville, Florida. Commander Hetherington wears the following personal and unit awards: Navy Commendation Medal, Navy Achievement Medal, " E " Ribbon and Philippine Presidential Unit Citation. Commander Hetherington is married to the former Alice Hilgers of Anaconda, Montana. They have four children: daughters Michelle, Patricia, Natalie, and son Kevin. The MOUNT BAKER would be only an empty hulk if it were not for the officers and crew who live, work, and relax on board. It is people who make a ship — not supplies, electronic gear, weapons systems, propulsion plant equipment, aircraft, or replenishment rigs. A ship has a personality and a discernable feeling which transcends installed equipment. This is what makes MOUNT BAKER a truly exceptional vessel. Throughout the deployment depicted in the following pages, you will see people — your husbands, sons, uncles, nephews, boyfriends, and fiances. They are the living, responsive, loving, dedicated, professional, hard-working men of MOUNT BAKER who comprise the ship ' s heart and soul. It is also important to realize that all of you reading this cruise book likewise are part of the pulse of this ship. The men on board cannot function by themselves. Only with your support, words of encouragement, and dedication to keepi ng the homefront squared-away while MOUNT BAKER is deployed can the men work at their fullest capacity. So you are a part of this ship, too. This deployment has taken us half-way around the world and half-way through a year in service to our country. We were " delivering with class " in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Lebanon, throughout the Mediterranean Sea, and in the Atlantic Ocean. In the course of the deployment MOUNT BAKER steamed over 35,000 miles, delivered over 2,500 tons of ammunition and 50 tons of cargo, pumped 300,000 gallons of fuel to " customer " ships, and carried over 100 transient personnel. Our expertise has received wide acclaim and earned the ship numerous " atta-boys " and " kudos. " As Executive Officer, I am indeed fortunate to have such a fine group of men to supervise. I marvel daily at their abilities and undying spirit. The " Low Country Express " will pull into our home station with evident pride for a job most professionally done. The deployment has been a memorable one with success achieved at every assignment. As you page through this book, it is my hope that you will get a glimpse of our life " from reveille to taps " and get a feel for the MOUNT BAKER at work and play. I am proud of this ship and you can certainly share in that pride. M W. G. WRIGHT LCDR USN Executive Officer USS MOUNT BAKER (AE-34) BIOGRAPHY OF LIEUTENANT COMMANDER W. GRANT WRIGHT. USN W.

Our 1983 Mediterranean Indian Ocean cruise has shown what a fine dedicated crew can do to make our Navy the best in the world. We were called upon to do a wide variety of things, all of which were accomplished " with class " . Our cruise book attempts to show, through pictures and words, what our cruise meant to the members of the MOUNT BAKER. As for myself, it has been one of the great satisfactions, being allowed to serve on the best AE in the fleet. As the Command Master Chief, I have never served with a crew who was more dedicated to their ship than the crew of the MOUNT BAKER and I am extremely proud to say that I am part of that crew. K. R.

Butler Assistant Second Division Offic CW02 Robert W. Jewell Third Division Officer FIRST DIVISION At reveille, First Division, supervised by LTJG Vincent, is on deck and ready to work. First Division is manned by Boatswain ' s Mates and deck personnel who are trained in UNREP and refueling details, along with the painting and preservation of the ship. " UNREP " , underway replen- ishment, is a detail with two ships steaming beside one another to send or receive a rig. UNREP details consist of 14 people with a rig captain, the man in charge of the rig section. Riggers work directly with the cargo itself, putting on and taking off the slings that hold the cargo adjacent to the highline. Although UNREP is a major task of first division ' s duties, painting and preservation takes up a great deal of the division ' s work time. First Division ' s job also consists of manning the forecastle during the mooring of the ship or anchorage. The purpose of man- ning the forecastle is to tend the mooring lines. After the mooring lines are secured, it ' s liberty call. As First Division would say, " First in work and first in fun. First Division steps aside for no one. " At taps. First Division person- nel are anxious to get some rest from a hard working day aboard USS MOUNT BAKER (AE-34). BMl Ronald D, Andres Leading Petty Officer BMl Ronald B.

Second Division ' s responsibilities begin well before reveille and end well after taps. There are 42 men which make up Second Division. The 42 are split into two categor- ies: Boatswain ' s Mates and non- rated Seaman. Second Division can be looked upon as a stepping stone for the non-rated Seamen. It gives one time to look around before deciding on what career direction to take. For those who choose the Boatswain Mate rating, Second Division provides the best and most diverse training available in Deck Department. As members of Second Divi- sion, we are responsible for many areas. These include taking on and delivering supplies and ordnance, ship ' s exterior and " interior maintenance; and the operation and care of the small boats. We provide liberty boats when in port, underway watches, helo crash crew, life boat, and flight quarters. To say that our day only spans the period from reveille to taps would be an understatement. The job of Second Division is never done. We are always ready to act on a moment ' s notice when called upon to perform. BMC (SW) Steve W. Mutta Leading Chief Petty Officer BMl (SW) Frank A.

Spike SN Earl T Stamatkir SA John F Thomson SN Neal R, Tomaszewski THIRD DIVISION Third Division, the Ordnance Cargo Division, is responsible for maintaining the ship ' s fourteen ammunition cargo holds, its two twin 3 " 50 gun mounts, four ready service magazines, the armory, and small arms magazine. We are also responsible for the entire cargo handling area on the main deck. A typical day starts at reveille with all hands on main deck. We then hold morning sweepers (our goal is to sweep the deck to bare metal), and then on to breakfast and morning coffee. After assem- bling for quarters, work assignments are given out, and we attempt to get our daily routine started. This involves maintenance on the gear we use, cleaning our spaces, and moving things around to confuse the joggers later in the day. When UNREPS are scheduled, however, then the whole division turns-to to break out the required items, and get them ready for transfer, either by helicopter vertical replenishment, or by rigs connected for replenish- ment with other ships. The ammunition, or general cargo, is then brought to the station where it is to be transferred. When we receive things, then the reverse is the pattern. We receive the ammo from the stations, unsling it, and stow it around the decks until we have time to put it away in the holds. When the UNREPS are done, then Third Division continues stowing the ammo, on into the evening, running joggers off the deck, and making sure that the stuff is safely stowed in the proper places. Then, we hold sweepers again, and try to relax, until one of the bosses finds something wrong with what we did, and then it comes out again to fix the problem. Then the message traffic comes in with a change to the ammo we fixed for the ship the next day, and out we go again, to get that ready. Often, when taps sounds, we pause for a moment, and go on with the job. The Mission Impossible Team is always there, and we love it. GMGC Marvin W.

We are Stream, thirty bodies strong, and ready to CONREP at any time. We consist of two shops, and are composed of the best in the Navy: Boatswain ' s Mates, Enginemen, Electricians, and Machinist ' s Mates. We are a group of individuals who combine to form a highly-skilled team of professionals who keep this ship ' s UNREP gear ready to go. Our work includes hydraulic winches, tensioners, cargo weapons elevators, topping lifts, fork trucks, and hydraulic doors. When it is time for the crew to go on liberty, they leave the ship on Stream ' s accommodation ladders. When reveille comes around in the morning. Stream is the first division in Deck Department to roll out of their racks. They do this with the assistance of a fine reveille Petty Officer. After an outstanding meal in the EDF, our sailors muster up ready for a hard day ' s work. Work consists of preventive and corrective maintenance on our gear.

Basically, our daily routine consists of getting up for quarters or mustering in the shop, as required, and then attending to whatever needs attention. One day we may have problems in the Galley and the next day problems in the laundry, scullery, main reefers, or just about anywhere on the ship. We never know what to expect in the morning. We are also required too man-up certain stations during UNREP and Flight Quarters, or during Boat Operations, as well as normal Steaming Watches in the Main Engineering Space and as Sounding and Security Patrol. When we are not on watch, or at Flight Quarters or UNREP Stations, we try and accomplish all of our Preventive Maintenance (PMS) on equipment throughout the ship as well as maintaining our assigned spaces. The daily routine in A Division consists of getting up and being flexible. MMC (SW) Arthur W. Bischoff Leading Chief Petty Officer MMl Randall F. Adams Leading Petty Officer SN Michael W.

Young B DIVISION As reveille sounds throughout the ship at 0600 it ' s time to roll them tired bones out and get moving. The boiler technicians have no problem going to chow and putting a sizeable dent in the amount of food prepared. At 0730 we all fall in for quarters and inspections. Ship ' s evolutions and schedule of planned events are put out at that time. The day ' s work is assigned at this time. It could be anything from cleaning a deck to refueling another ship as long as it involves keeping the screw turning. After a hard morning of work, it ' s soon time for chow again and that time honored tradition of the nooner. At 1300 it ' s time to go again and complete our assigned work. Everybody stays as busy as possible to help time pass faster. Soon enough 1630 comes and now it ' s time to knock off and get some rest. Our day doesn ' t end here. Watches must be stood around the clock maintaining our plant. Our machinery must always be ready to deliver with class. At 2200 those not still working or still on watch hits their racks for a well deserved rest, until they are called on again to accomplish the impossible and await their turn on watch to help the machinist ' s mates " Keep the screw turning and the lights burning. " In the Oil Lab, the duty oil kings are already hours underway as reveille sounds. Daily reports that were started at midnight are receiving their final touches. A composite of all fuel and water, distilled, received, transferred, expended, or altered in any aspect is documented. Percentages, dis- tances, hours, gallons, and overall plant status is recorded in the oil lab. Through the course of the day the fuel is to be tested and moved, water chemistry in the boilers to be maintained, feedwater to be kept pure and always more logs. At 2200 taps goes, and it comes none too soon, as midnight is not far away. BTC (SW) Louis D. Russell Leading Chief Petty Officer BTl James L. Garner Leading Petty Officer BTl George D.

Sims E DIVISION On board the MOUNT BAKER, E division is separated into two work centers, EEOl and EE03. EEOl is composed of electrician ' s mates, who are responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of mo- tors, generators, power and lighting distribution systems, and a wide variety of test equipment. EE03 is composed of Interior Communica- tions Electricians, who are responsi- ble for the upkeep and mainten- ance of telephone systems, sound powered and dial, various types of navigational equipment, such as the gyrocompasses, dead reckon- ing tracer, and dead reckoning analyzer indicator. EM ' s and IC men also stand watches in the IC and Gyro room in order to monitor critical equip- ment such as the telephone system, gyrocompasses, and IMC central amplifier system. Daily routine for -E division starts at 0600 with reveille. At 0730, all hands muster in their respective shops to discuss work to be accomplished for the day with their division officer and respective LPO ' s. At 0800, E division turns to. EM ' s and IC men carry out corrective maintenance, PMS, supply work, and all trouble calls that fall under their jurisdiction. The EM ' s also issue and check out portable electric tools on a daily basis, and are responsible for the allocation of movies, both on board and to other ships. Twice a week, " on-the-job " training is held, with a specified piece of gear or system for each rate as the object of study. This training enhances the knowledge and skill of all personnel in the division, and allows them to better fulfill their roles as EM ' s and IC men. Continuing with the daily rou- tine, sweepers are held at 1115, and all hands again turn to, carrying on the routine in the same manner as in the morning. Sweepers are again held at 1615, and all hands with the exception of the watches, knock off at 1630. Between 1630 and taps, E division can be found carrying out different pursuits, such as reading, writing letters, carving, weight-lifting, watching TV, or playing cards. At 2200 all hands turn in, in preparation for another day of work and accomplishment of assigned tasks. mffltui EMCS Edward W. Bragg Leading Chief Petty Officer EMI Rustico C.

After breakfast, everyone who doesn ' t have the watch musters on the 01 Deck for Quarters (by Station 4). Here we are mustered, inspected, and given instructions for the day. After Quarters, we go down in the hole where it is approximately 100 to 110 degrees. In the hole we do PMS on greasing the pump couplings, cleaning the coolers, and inspecting internal parts on various equip- ment. We also measure main shaft alignment and many other tedious jobs. Sometimes machinery breaks down and we have to repair or rebuild it. It takes a lot of work tearing down this machinery, locating new parts, and then putting it back together. Afterwards there is the paperwork which is no easy task. When noon time rolls around everyone who isn ' t on watch heads for the berthing area where they relax and enjoy the air condition- ing. At 1300, it ' s back in the hole in the boiling heat to finish up the work. Then everyone sweeps up the dirt, picks up the tools, carries out the trash, and scrubs down the decks. At 1630, it ' s knock off ship ' s work and everyone relaxes by playing cards until supper. They may also be found writing letters, watching TV, or just sitting around shooting the breeze. After supper as long as we do not have a hot job going on, those not on watch do their own thing. At 2200 everyone turns into their racks for a good nights sleep if they don ' t have watch. Watch is maintained 24 hours to keep the propeller turning and the lights burning. MMC(SW) Michael R. Perman Leading Chief Petty Officer MMC Ramon W.

The prob- lems found in the heads of the berthing compartments are first items on the agenda. Safety and habitability are always the top priorities. So the DCA relays the problems to the division chief who takes them for action. The DCA has also put out the word that Flight Quarters will be going down at 1300. With that in mind, the division takes the remainder of the morning to tackle the preventive maintenance scheduled to be accomplished during the week. The ship ' s damage control systems require constant attention in order for the MOUNT BAKER to maintain its readiness posture at a high state. So we try to keep them finely tuned. There is also some COMM gear that needs to be mounted; we will get that done also. We are also rotating with Auxiliary Division on the Sounding and Security watch and D.C. Central Petty Officer of the Watch. Considering the amount of machinery that " A Gang " and R Division are responsible for, the Sounding and Security Watch must be alert and diligent. If there is a malfunction to any of this equipment, he had better pick it up fast and notify the D.C. Central Watch so that the proper personnel can be notified. The aircraft carrier appears on the horizon and flight quarters is called away. The designated HTs man their position on the flight quarters team. Later that afternoon, the Engi- neer Officer discovers a salt water leak on number one evaporator. This could be trouble if not attended to, so the HTs get on it right away. Well, this day is coming to a close, but before we can knock off the lecture on the ship ' s firemain system is given in the General Workshop. Now it ' s time to clean up and relax before hitting the rack. It has been a busy day and tomorrow will prove the same. But boredom and monotony is not in the HT dictionary. The challenge on the MOUNT BAKER is for the HT to always be there, whether it is damage control or shopfitting. HTC Harry M. McFarland Leading Chief Petty Officer HTl Walter L.

This in- cludes maintaining on-hand quanti- ties of allowance items, issuing material from stock, and ordering those items not carried on board. A stock record battery containing approximately 18,000 different line items is maintained to provide material support functions related to operational and maintenance requirements for the ship. The OPTAR storekeeper is responsible for tracking annual funds (in excess of one million dollars), and the handling of urgent material requirements, ensuring receipt of critical supplies and minimizing down-time to CASREPT equipment. Other functions per- formed by the SK ' s include maintaining an outstanding file with applicable status, packaging and mailing mandatory turn-in items, maintaining the aviation pack-up while deployed, and the cleanliness and upkeep of assigned storerooms and spaces. A function unique to store- keepers on AE class ships is ammunition administration, which includes the requistioning, receipt, and transfer of all conventional ammunition. Ammunition transac- tion reports are prepared to reflect any change in onboard quantities. i SKC Wayne P Hall Leading Chief Petty Offic SKI Willard V. Burton Leading Petty Officer SA Clifton R.

At 0500, the galley watch is already preparing the breakfast meal, with an eye on advance preparations for lunch and dinner. At 0630 breakf ast begins and our night baker ' s day ends after all the pastries are out. 1130 comes before anyone realizes it and it ' s lunch for the crew. At 1230 lunch is over, but for the MS ' s it ' s hard to see if the day is half over or just beginning. On any one day a multitude of things could happen: box lunches, late lunches, early lunches, lunches that stretch into dinner that stretch into nights. At 1630 when most of the crew settles down in front of the T. V. or just relaxes, the MS ' s are still hard at work. From the Senior Chief to the MSSN ' s, doing paperwork for meals, moving stores for cleaning, perfection never comes easy. Most days are completed by 2000. except for the serving of MIDRATS and the night baking, only to have it start oveY again much too soon. MSCS(SW) Florencio V.

Immedia- tely preceding quarters each morning, either the SH ' s or DK ' s hold training lectures to help us further our knowledge of our rates. Upon completion of training our Disbursing Clerks offer the crew a time to discuss pay matters and to increase or decrease an allotment. Consistently throughout the day our DK ' s work tediously preparing the LES ' s and payroll for the upcoming payday. Our ship ' s servicemen are busy at this time operating the ship ' s store retail outlet and ship ' s soda fountain. Our Records Keeper and Bulk Custodian combine skills to ensure the stores are kept well-stocked and the accounting of the stores is accurate. Meanwhile, our Laundry Supervisor and crew are busy washing, processing, and returning the crew ' s press work and bulk work on a routine around the clock basis. The ship ' s Barber is utilizing his skill in keeping everyone groomed with a nice military haircut. Last, but not least is our vending machine operator, who keeps the machines filled with cold sodas. DKCSISW) Artemio N. Abad Leading Chief Petty Officer SK2 Ernest R.

Waters OPERATIONS DEPARTMENT LCDR James N. Andrews Operations Officer LTJG Jeremiah P. Collins CIC Officer Electronic ENS Stephen D. Becknell Communications Officer .- ENS Rodney K. Fann Assistant Communications Officer OC DIVISION Radiomen are responsible for all of the ship ' s external communications. They keep the ship abreast of what is going on throughout the world. The ship ' s schedule, assignments, commit- ments, and intentions are all received and sent by the radiomen. Radiomen use highly-sophisticated equipment to send and receive the huge volume of messages at high speeds. Many long hours are spent learning how to operate the many different pieces of equipment because they must be able to communicate via regular voice, covered voice, teletype, computer data, and facsimile utilizing conventional means as well as satellite. Many messages handled by the radiomen must be carefully screened for reliability and trustworthiness. Due to the quantity of messages handled and the requirement for a 24 hour watch, the radiomen usually stand a two section rotation, averaging about 84 hours a week. In addition to standing watches, they must keep their spaces clean and their antennas and equip- ment operational. This rigorous schedule leaves little time for " movie call " or letter writing, but they manage to squeeze in the latter. It is a highly complex job and very taxing both mentally and physically. Therefore it is a rate for only a special type of person. To be a radiomen, one must be willing to accept the challenge of keeping up with computers and machines, while responding to calls for more circuits, and accepting the fact that he will never get caught up. Signalmen stand a normal work- day from 0800 till 1630 with a watch rotation to fill in the remainder of the day. When steaming with a battle group, they are involved in various multiship drills involving flashing light, flaghoist, and semaphore. When MOUNT BAKER is steaming indepen- dently, they hold various training drills and keep their spaces clean and bright work shining. Signalmen are known by the pride they take in their profession. This is evident by the enthusiasm they display when sending and receiving messages during an underway replenishment evolution or battle group steaming. During conditions of " EMCON " or radio silence, visual signaling is utilized because it is more secure, and therefore, more difficult for the enemy to intercept. RMCS(SW) John E.

Chief Waterman has his first cup of coffee. Chief Reed has his first Pepsi to begin the day. ETl Price and OSl Carr get their work centers working. LTJG Collins and the chiefs read through the daily message traffic, and then each goes on the prowl and ensures that the daily routine is carried out. Everyone is busy doing something so Chief Reed heads to the OPS office for his second Pepsi, and to work on school assignments, while Chief Waterman heads to the 3-M office to plot the uncovering of another PMS gundeck during the next division in the spotlight. 1130 - " Knock off ships work, dinner for the crew. " The on- coming OS ' s are just finishing their meal before the afternoon watch. All they seem to do is eat. drink and stand watch. For the ET ' s. it ' s another quick bite to eat and off to their racks for a " Navy Nooner. " 1300 - " Sick Call. Commence Ship ' s work. " You may have noticed that sick call always happens about one hour after chow; only concidence we ' re told. Chief Waterman finds the shop empty, the ET ' s can ' t be found. The OS ' s on watch are discussing the latest gossip with Bosun, while the other OS ' s sleep peacefully and dream. ETl Price has received his afternoon tea and rolled all the ET ' s out of their racks and put them back to work on the PMS and troubleshooting. 1630 - " Knock off ship ' s work. " Those words don ' t have much effect on the OS ' s at sea, in port it ' s another story. The ET ' s spread out quickly, some study, some head for the TV, while ETl Price and ET3 McBride gather the ever enlarging hordes of people, both real and imaginary, who are willing to brave the quest into a world of dungeons and dragons. Hopefully the evening will pass uneventfully, no trouble calls and few contacts. 1715 - " Dinner for the crew. " OS ' s are gorging themselves prior to relieving the watch. OS3 Kirkpatrick ' s on a diet, only twice through the chow line. OS3 Jarret ' s searching the mess decks for some good rumors.

Carpenter Assistant Navigator Administrative Officer T y X NAV DIVISION Better known as the Executive staff, we are a team made up of six work centers, with the head coach position being filled by the Executive Officer. Within the team two divisions have formed into one to battle the day-to-day duties of navigation and administration. The navigation part of the team consists of our quartermas- ters (QM ' s) who navigate the ship safely through the many miles of oceans and seas. They can be found amidst the piles of charts, publications, navigational instru- ments, and oceanographic equip- ment, plotting the ship ' s every move. The administrative part of the team consists of eight different ratings in five different work centers. We have the ship ' s office (YN ' s and PN ' s) with their type- writers to keep service records in order and all the paper work flowing. The Career Counselor (NC) has all the answers to questions about a naval career. The sheriff (MA) is our keeper of good order and discipline. The medical staff (HM ' s) keep us healthy and fills our needed prescriptions. A Public Affairs team (JO and IC) entertain the crew through television programs and radio music. Our spiritual needs are provided for by our Religious Programmer Specialist (RP) who is charged with schedul- ing, setting up, and providing church activities. Then there are the Postal Clerks (PC ' s) who are always busy sorting and distribut- ing those long-awaited letters from home. We are six work centers carrying out several different daily routines for one common goal that can be described in one short phrase, " Service To The Crew. " MAC(SW) Gerald W.

Yodcr EXPLOSIVE ORDNANCE DETACHMENT The EOD mission on board the MOUNT BAKER involves handling any emergency involving ordnance. Due to the quality of work the MOUNT BAKER does, the EOD team has not been called into action. So our normal day involves training for emergencies that may happen. After officer ' s call, the team musters in the EOD shop to discuss the day ' s schedule. The team then will go PT for approximately one hour. This is to maintain ourselves in the best possible shape for diving. The team then musters back in the shop for training. The training is conducted on EOD tools, pubs, emergency actions, and diving. This is to ensure the team is ready for any accident incident on board the ship or any U. S. Naval Ship in the area. During the noon meal hour, the team can usually be found exercising again. This normally a individual effort with team members doing their own thing: jump rope, running, weight lifting. The afternoon hours are devoted to maintenance of equip- ment and individual professional development. After PMS is com- pleted, the team members work on correspondence courses for rate training. Also several members are working on the Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialty qualifications so time is made for this. When knock off ship ' s work goes, again team members can usually be found exercising some- where on the ship. Also team members use this time to listen to music, catch up on reading, or writing letters to loved ones until Taps. Although it appears all the team does is exercise or train, the detachment has to be ready at any time to go in and work with ordnance involved in an accident. The only way to do this safely is through training for any emer- gency. If the team is ready, we have done our job. If we are not utilized, the MOUNT BAKER has done her job. LT Larry E.

Schafer Training Weapons Officer CW03 Mack L. Anderson Maintenance Material Control HC-6 DET 8 Since the Air Department ' s daily routine revolves around the flight schedule and since the flight schedule is subject to change unexpectedly, or at least on an hourly basis, there is no such thing as a standard or normal daily routine. However, using " routine " loosely, our typical daily routine goes something like this: The day begins at 0600 with reveille, although frequently it can start as early as 0300 if we have early commitments. About 0700 the air crews " preflight " the aircraft, which is a half-hour inspection to ensure that the bird is ready for flight. The flight crew briefs for the mission at 0745 and the ground crew rolls the duty helo on our deck. Flight Quarters stations are set at 0800 with most of the maintenance personnel manning them. If all goes well, and plans don ' t change we launch about 0820 and begin our mission of distributing passengers, mail, and assorted cargo, or of VERTREP-ing ordnance and fleet freight. We wrap up operations and secure about 1130, in time to grab some lunch. At 1300 the detachment returns to the never-ending maintenance effort, which uses 20-25 man hours for every flight hour. Almost half of that is spent on corrosion control (cleaning, priming, sealing, and painting areas where metal has been exposed) as the marine environment and salt spray are very harsh on anything made of metal. Sometimes in the afternoon we may take a time-out for mail call. General Quarters, payday or professional training, but mainte- nance never sleeps and the compo- nent changes, systems inspections, quality assurance, and corrosion control continue until supper at 1730. After supper, the night check crew comes on and works with the day check crew until about 2000, when day check secures for a couple hours of recreation and letter-writing before taps at 2200. The night check works on through all hours of the morning until the following day when we do it all over again. ADC Michael W, Kohler Leading Chief Petty Officei AZl James C.
