THE SHIP OF STATE
Thou, too, sail on, O Ship of State!
Sail on, O UNION, strong and great!
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
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.
...a pictorial view of an ammunition ship's function
and Service with Replenishment Forces of the
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
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.
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.
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. After attending the Naval Academy Preparatory class, he entered
the Naval Academy in 1942 and was commissioned as Ensign in Iune 1945. Upon graduat-
ing from the Academy, he received orders or the Amphibious Forces in LSM CRD 411 and
412 as Gunnery Officer and Executive Officer.
After completion of rigorous flight training in 1949 he joined the Navy's first F9F-2 jet
fighter squadron VF-111 and deployed soon thereafter to the Korean Theater on the aircraft
carrier PHILIPPINE SEA. He was awarded the Air Medal and Gold Star in lieu of a second
Air Medal for this campaign. Subsequently, he served in five jet fighter squadrons, two
of which he commanded. These were VE-132 on the carrier CONSTELLATION, and VF-124
which provides combat readiness training to all Navy F-8 CRUSADER pilots and maintenance
For the period of three years between 1957 and 1960, Captain Camp was project officer
for air-launched guided missiles at the Naval Ordnance Test Station, China Lake. He then
served on the staff of Commander Carrier Division NINE as Air Warfare Officer during the
initial Navy CVA combat operations in Southeast Asia.
After completing a tour of duty in the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations in April
1968, Captain Camp assumed command of USS CASTOR CAKS-15. When the CASTOR
was decommissioned in October 1968, he was ordered to command USS MOUNT KATMAI
CAE-165. He assumed command in March of 1969.
Captain Camp and his wife Ellen make their home in Vallejo, California. The CamP'5
have a married son who resides in Astoria, Oregon.

ln the darkened early morning hours off the
coast of Vietnam, the USS MOUNT KATMAI CAE-
16D heavily laden down with tons of ammunition
for the combatant ships patrolling the coastal
waters, receives a radar contact on the blue-green
illuminescent radar screen. The Radarmen relate
the sighting to the Officer of the Deck on the
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
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.

The Yeoman and Personnelman are integral parts of ad.
ministration in a ship's operations. 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
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.

The Navigation Department has the vital respon-
sibility of safely navigating the ship in and out of
port, at sea, and during rearmings when another
ship is close alongside. 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.

merely by their deep tans. Those are the men in
the Deck Department. The predominant part of the

the powerful rays of the tropical sun. It is their
job to keep the exterior of the ship, decks, hatch
covers, blocks and swivels, booms, exterior and
passageway bulkheads winch decks the helo deck

When not involved in the unending chipping, hammer-
ing, and painting, or standing of watches, the men from
Deck Department have the responsibility of making sure
that all preparations have been made for rearmings. Lines
must be laid out, rigs prepared, and the required ammuni-
tion taken out of the holds.
When moored 3rd Division, the Gunner's Mates, have
the task of loading ammunition from the pier to the
ship's holds and deck. They must insure that the newly
delivered ammo is stored in such a way as to be con-
venient to get at' when needed, and that it is shored
so as not to give way in rough seas. They are also
responsible for the maintenance and operation of the
ship's 3 inch 50 caliber forward mounted guns.

Throughout the ship the lights are dimming. 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.

first alarm of fire. An uncontrolled fire aboard an ammunition ship could
mean the lives of every man aboard.

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.

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! Flight Quarters! Man the helo deck!
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.

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.

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
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-
,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.

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:

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
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.
As a sentimental gesture when one sails for the last time under San Francisco's
Golden Gate Bridge, it is the Navy custom to throw one's white hat into the water.
