Humanity with all its fears, TW ith all the hopes of future years, Is hanging breathless on thy fate! Vfe know what Master laid thy keel, Vfhat workmen wrought thy ribs of steel, Vfho made each mast, and sail, and rope, Vfhat an'oils rang, what hammers beat, In what a forge and what a heat Vfere shaped the anchors of thy hope! Fear not each sudden sound and shock, 'T is of the waive and not the rock, 'T is but the flapping of the sail, And not a rent made by the gale! In spite of roclz and tempest's roar, In spite of false lights on the shore, Sail on, nor fear to breast the sea! Our hearts, our hopes, are all with thee, Our hearts, our hopes, our prayers, our tears, Our faith triumphant oler our fears, Are all with thee,-are all with thee! from The Building of a Ship Henry Wadsworth Longfellow DEDICATIQN Home is not just a wooden and concrete structure to shelter out rain, wind, and snow, especially to a Navyman overseas. To us, home is warmth, security, and love. It is where we leave the importance of our lives while we serve our country far away. But most of all, gone for seemingly unending months at a time, home is memories. These memories are what keep us going. They are what continue to connect us to the world we have been made to leave behind. These endearing memories also keep us hopeful for a better future, one different from the caotic times of today. Une that will not have to demand our long absence from those who love us, from our home. In our hearts, and in our hopes and prayers, we only desire a future that will not cause us to be away from home as we are now. We hope the future will be one of free- dom, tranquility, and peace. It is to this future we dedicate this book. SS OU KATNIAI AE-16 ...a pictorial view of an ammunition ship's function and Service with Replenishment Forces of the SEVENTH FLEET OPERATIONS 5 WESTERN PACIFIC 1969-1970 S! si-iiP's rviissioixi During the days that the windjammers and steam-driven wooden hulled ships sailed the seas and oceans, the United States Navy was small and in her youth. Despite her size and age, she was one of the most powerful in the world. She had a deficiency in one important area though, her ships could only maintain themselves as long as provisions aboard held out. The idea of "under-way re- plenishment" had yet. to be conceived. A ship in today's modern Navy has the capabilities through the Navy's Replenish- ment Forces, to sustain itself for indef- inite periods of time without having to return to port. The Navy's Replenish- ment Forces are the backbone of the combatant ships of the Navy. Among the Replenishment Forces' oil tankers, supply, and other cargo carrying ships is another class of ship whose job it is to supply bombs, missiles, powder, fuses, and other explosives, the ammunition ship. At sea, whether during time of peace or during wartime, naval combatant units are dependent on the Replenishment Forces for their efficiency, mobility, flex- ibility, and endurance. Today's Replen- ishment Forces are the product of years of testing and development. The am- munition ship and her techniques of ammunition transfer are near perfection. Ships can be rearmed in multiples in an "alongside" transfer or by helicopter, which is called "vertical replenishment". The USS MOUNT KATMAI AE-16 is one of the best ammunition ships in the Navy. Ours is often a difficult and trying job though. Rearmings can take place at any time of the day or night and on the shortest of notice. But, the men of the MOUNT KATMAI are highly trained and skilled in their duties. The proficiency that they have acquired through months of actual experience at sea, is made evident by the lack of serious accidents, the length of time an ammunition transfer requires, and the high degree of expertise displayed under the roughest conditions of weather and sea. The USS MGUNT KATMAI stands ready, willing, and able to serve our country in the highest traditions of the United States Navy. SHlP'S HISTORY The USS MOUNT KATMAI is named after a still semi-active volcano located approximately 100 miles north of Kodiak, Alaska in the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes. The main crater of MOUNT KATMAI is one of the greatest in the world, being three miles across, with the rim some 3,700 feet above the crater floor. At the head of the Alaskan Peninsula stands the MOUNT KATMAI National Monument. The USS MOUNT KATMAI AE-16 was built by the North Carolina Shipbuilding Company, Wilmington, North Carolina. The keel was laid in November of 1944. She was launched less than two months later in January of 1945. The ship has been in continuous active service since her commissioning on july 21, 1945, a span of over 25 years. With the outbreak of the Korean Conflict in 1950, the MOUNT KATMAI supported United Nations forces off Korea until 1953 with only very short periods of time in the States. For approximately three months in the summer of 1950, she was the only ammunition ship engaged in replenishment operations with the combatant forces of the United Nations. For her exceptional performance of duty during that time, the MOUNT KATMAI was awarded the Navy Unit Commendation. In the 12 years between the Korean and Vietnamese Conflict, the MOUNT KATMAI participated in training exercises off the West Coast as a unit of the First Fleet. Also during that 12 year period, the ship was deployed to the Western Pacific for Operations with the Seventh Fleet. With the eruption of conflict in Vietnam, the MOUNT KATMAI was again called to aid the 2 combatant forces of the Seventh. As in Korea, her performance and "Can Do" spirit is again demonstrated in Vietnam. As an integral part of the Replenishment Forces of the Seventh Fleet, the USS MOUNT KATMAI owes her excellence to her outstanding crew. Many of the ships she rearms compliment her crew on their profession- alism and adeptness in their duty. COMMANDINC. OFFICER CAPTAIN HERBERT E. CAMP Captain Herbert E. Camp was born on the 30th of October 1921, in Alma, Oklahoma. He grew up in the oil field boom towns of Texas and Oklahoma. At the age of eighteen he enlisted in the Navy.

The Radarmen relate the sighting to the Officer of the Deck on the Bridge. Earlier in the night in Radio Central, the Radio- men had been receiving radio messages from a ship requesting rearmament. She had sent us her I requirements and rendezvous time and position I Q and had set out on a rendezvous interception I course with us. Between the time of receiving the radio messages and the radar sighting, a very important piece of radar equipment in the Combat Information Center QCICD went on the blink. The Electronic Technicians were called to find the malfunction and fix the device as soon as possible. It was im- perative that the intricate equipment be repaired and in working order before rendezvous time. The ET's worked through the night and just into morning when it was finally fixed. The stern lookout, Clifebuoyj, spots the rendezvous ship through his binoculars. The ship is just on the horizon. The Radarmen give the Bridge the oncoming ship's distance at 20,000 yards and closing. The Signalmen take over. Using the flashing light, they exchange identifications which commence rendezvous.

Yeoman takes care of the ship's correspondence, routing of departmental mail, keeping files of notes and instructions, and aid the Executive Gfficer in his administrative duties. Personnelmen maintain the crew'5 service records, type orders for transfer, leave, discharge, and occasionally extention and shipover. During our twenty day line periods, the ship sometimes only has one or possibly two Mail Calls. When "Mail Call" is announced through the ship everyone flocks to the post office. Considered the most important man aboard, the Postal Clerk sees to it that letters from home get to their final destination. Carelessness can result in injury, aboard the ship or on liberty. The Corpsman is the one the crew goes to when sick or injured. Sometimes his job consists of only applying a bandaid or giving an aspirin, but when his knowledge and skill is really needed, there is not a man aboard who is not thankful for the Corpsman's service. .N XX l l ,. . 42 -s ' 2 Q ' if POSTAL CLERK: MASEVVIC, K.

The navigators maintain the Quartermaster's Notebook and other various records and logs pertaining to daily ship's routine T at sea. They are also held responsible for all current revisions of the charts they use in their navigation. By using fixes, that is positioning the ship's location in coordination with land, stars, or transmitted radio signals, the navigators guide the ship on the proper courses safely and efficiently.

The EOD Team, QExplosive Ordnance Disposal Teamj, is a specially assigned group of men who accompany various ammunition carrying ships on their cruises. They are highly trained and skilled men whose jolo it is to inspect, handle, and dispose of any explosives found to be dangerous aboard a ship. They are also qualified divers and take care of the needs for diving that the ship may have.

The constant groan of the generators and pumps dies to a dull silence. The trapped air in the compartments quickly becomes thick and stale as ventilation stops. The men of the Engineering Department are running through the passageways with flashlights and emergency battle lanterns groping their way to their designated areas of duty. A machinery casualty does not happen often, but when it does, one can be assured that the entire Engineering Department is working to get the affected machin- ery back on the line. While the men in charge of the ship's inter-communications run a quick check on their phone circuits, the Electricians are tracing wiring, fuses, and circuit breakers for defects. They work together with the other Engineers to get the generators back on the line to produce needed electricity for lighting, ventilation, and the running of hundreds of pieces of machinery dependent on electricity.

The Damage Controlmen stand ready in case of fire or explosion. The possibility of a fire and explosion is always evident. The DC's job is T0 put out the fire and repair as best they can the damage caused. The ship- fitters aid them when metal work like welding is required or pipe needs fixing.

DISPURSING OFFICER LTIG CARDWELL SUPPLY As the ship sits at the ammo pier preparing for its next line period, the ship's Supply Department is busy restocking storage spaces with necessary goods and stores: The Storekeepers inventory the general stores spaces assuring that machinery repair parts as well as consumable items such as office supplies, are maintained in sufficient quantity. A twenty man working party is called away and stores are brought aboard from the pier to the ship's deck and taken to the proper storage areas. The Commissaryman on duty directs the stores' storage operation. Days before hand, .the Commissarymen held in- ventory on their consumables and from the inventory, ordered what was necessary for the next line period. Ideally, they should have enough stores aboard when the ship pulls out of port to stay out to sea for up to three months. After the working party is dismissed, the Commissaryman goes to the galley to prepare the afternoon meal for the enlisted men. Topside in Officers' Country, the Captain's and officers' stewards begin preparations for the meals they have the responsibility of making. While the working party struggled with the new stores, the stewards were busy maticulously cleaning the officers' staterooms, the Wardroom, and the Officers' Country passageways. . . . . f d The Ship's Servicemen are busy in their designated areas o uty.

Q re it REARVVINC The Boatswain Mate of the Watch on the Bridge announces into the 1MC microphone, "Now station the rearming detail. Now station the rearming detail. Stations 1, 5, 7, 9, and 11 will be utilized." The ship slows down to twelve knots, rearming speed. The sea around her is choppy and white capped, and small Vietnamese fishing boats seem to be lulling everywhere. The oncoming ship is only two hundred yards away and closing. As she slips alongside, the the rearming details on both ships stand in straight lines facing each other. Again the 1MC is used, but this time to make an announcement to the alongside ship. "Good afternoon. Welcome alongside the USS MOUNT KATMAI. Stand by for shot lines for- ward, amidships, and aft. All topside personnel take cover." Everyone on the alongside ship scatters for cover to avoid the shot line projectiles. The KATMAVS Gunner's Mates take aim and as each of the special rifles used for shot lines goes oft with a Ioang, the shot lines go sailing across on target.

Flight Quarters! Man the helo deck! Flight Quarters!" Dressed in blue, red, and yellow high neck cotton jerseys, the helo crew prepares for vertical replenishment operations. Fire hoses are charged and manned. Damage Controlmen in their silver asbestos protective clothing stand tense and ready. The red flag goes down and the green one is hauled up signify- ing readiness. The helo circles around the ship. Seeing the green flag, the helicopter pilot manuevers his craft in closer to the helo deck which is marked like a pistol target with its painted white lines guiding him to center. No one on deck wears a hat as a precautionary measure. The suction caused by the turning of the rotor blades and the intake of the power- ful engine would sweep any loose gear like a hat up into the helicopter. The helo hovers like a large hummingbird and those without goggles have to turn their heads due to the fantastic currents of air caused by the spinning blades. The colored jersey-clad helo crew attaches the long poles from the netted loads of bomb fins to the hook on the under- side of the helo. The chopper lifts up swooping the load of fins off the helo deck and into the air. After twelve lifts the helo deck is barren except for the men in the jerseys. 54 Nfff w f ,I ' xX ff S .1 ,fi 1 1 1 I V! ff Z. xv, - X . 2'9" xg' X PM .ix W ,..dg'.M5nQw4"w,mvf iii Now that the fins have been delivered, the All Hands Working Party is called away for stores replenishment, Again the red flag goes down and the green is hauled up, The helo carrying the netted stores approaches. The Damage Controlmen also have cans of mechanical foam, a firefighting agent, ready and close at hand in case the helo comes too close to the rigging or booms or misses its mark on the helo deck. The sea around the aft end of the ship is white capped due to the swiftly turning blades of the helicopter. Hovering, the stores are set easily on target. The All Hands Working Party takes only seconds to disperse the stores from the helo deck to the main deck and to their place of storage. The helicopter swoops in again with precision accuracy dropping another load of stores on the deck. The vertical replenishment of stores takes only an hour or so through the crew's adept teamwork. Everyone is exhausted and sitting or laying on the hatch covers and deck. Some are eating an apple or an orange taken from the newly delivered stores. ln a few hours the ship has another rearming, but this one will be an alongside transfer. The crew, though tired, will be prepared and ready. -s -Q -Sta 'fr 'K Q 'wgx 'Wfvnm vurmugm allxwn I I yfm hffm.

MW REFLECTICDNS At sea on the 12th of February 1970, the USS MOUNT KATMAI CAE-165 celebrated the 25th Anniver- 53fY of her 1945 commissioning. The entire crew assembled on No. 3 Hatch for a cake cutting ceremony and to listen to the ship's rock 'n roll band. SM2 May, having been aboard the ship for four years which was longer than any man aboard, did the cake cutting honors. The KATMAI's 25th Anniversary was enjoyed by all, but only after her two morning rearmings had been completed. She rearmed the USS BRADLEY CDE-10415 at five a. m. and the USS BRINKLEY BASS CDD-8871 shortly afterward. To both alongside ships, Captain H. E. Camp sent miniatures of the larger anniversary cake in order to share the MOUNT KATMAl's cele- bration. ,The large white cake was especially baked for the occasion by the ship's baker C51 Czeslowski. With the cake was served ice cream and punch. s-elm N3 'Q F St X x 422 , f , -7 . .g K' , ' "Q, X Pe V I f,0y, , ,535 4 , , " lff fffif- fl W X 2 531 G T ' ' f f f 5 2 ' The decision to make the Navy one's career is an im- portant one. An initial enlistment in the Navy is either two or four years. After that period of time one can choose either to become a civilian or stay in the Navy. Those who extend or shipover do so realizing after much thought that Navy life is their life. The following list of men made their decision to begin or continue their Naval careers this cruise: BM1 Montgomery QM2 Hilgardner EM2 Franklin CS2 Miranda SK3 Fisch BM3 Gradillas HM3 Mossburg SD3 Abucay 'gvw ,fhf JMQ44- I Sl-IIP'S BAN www '-..,, ,.7 C4 NN lr L f l .f af' if X! The ceremony for advancement in rate or the awarding of a special commendation is held before the crew and conducted by the Commanding Officer. During rearmings the MOUNT KATMAI flys a very interesting and original flag. On it is the picture of a freight train and the inscription HVVESTPAC CANNONBALLH. The flag was made by SM1 VV.A. Simon. At the end of a rearming when all lines are broken, the ship's authentic 19th century train whistle is sounded. Taken from Captain Camp's last ship when it was decommissioned, it has some startling effects on the crews of alongside ships. The flag and whistle represent the image of the 19th century trains that made the development and expansion of the United States what it is today, strong, dependable, and efficient. In the effort to bring about an independent South Vietnamese Naval force, the Seventh Fleet initiated actual experience-training programs with young Vietnamese naval officers. Throughout the Western Pacific, Seventh Fleet ships are the proving ground for this program. Aboard the MOUNT KATMAI are Vietnamese Naval Aspirants Van and Khiem.
