And we get better at it each day.
To know us is to love us
Cause you know that we're a hell of a crew
Oh Lord, it's hard to be humble
When you're doing it the way that we do.
Our skipper now he is a winner .
A virtual man among men,
When things get too tough for others
Well that's when they 're just right for him.

He just calls on his hard charging crew,

When you 're doing it the way that we do. A

Vertreppin ' those loads through the air,
Our unrep stations are tensioned

Nothing happens onboard the NIAGARA
FALLS without the men in dungarees of 1ST
Division. In addition to their role in VERTREPS
and UNREPS, 1ST Division personnel are found
standing underway watches on the bridge,
manning the helm and running lookout positions.
They can be found chipping, painting and
sweeping, and in case of man-overboard they are
in charge of the starboard whale boat. Possibly
most important, 1ST Division personnel are in
charge of the accommodation ladder, better
known as the "steps to liberty call."

The "Fire Room:"
Where the Boiler Tech-
nicians tend three gar-
gantuan kettles which
create steam at 620 psi
and 850oF. Anytime the
plant is "lit off" there
are at least six BT's on
Watch to tame the flame
that provides the power
for virtually everything
on the ship. The Boiler
Division, is responsible
for the maintenance to
the boilers and all as-
sociated auxiliary equip-
ment such as the au-
tomatic combustion con-
trols, pumps and com-
pressors. The BT's also
receive and transfer
massive amounts of
fuelsg almost 4 million
gallons were handled in
the first three quarters
of 1982. The "Fuel, Oil

and treat all fluids used

Sharing the sauna with the BT's
are the Machinists Mates. The MM's
harness the workhorse steam and
extract its tremendous power. The
main propulsion turbines provide up
to 22,000 shaft horsepower and drive
a propeller that stands 20 feet tall
and weighs 28 tons. The MM's also
utilize the steam to drive three
generators, to produce up to 32,000
gallons of fresh water daily from the
evaporators and to run a huge
number of pumps and other
specialized equipment necessary to
operate the Main Engineering Plant.
The MM's don't just put the steam
to work. They also put themselves to
work maintaining and repairing all of
the highly technical equipment
required to keep the NIAGARA

THE ENGINEEIPS LAMENT
Now each of us from time to time, has gazed upon the sea
And watched the warships pulling out, to keep this country free
And most of us have read the book, or heard the lusty talk
About the men who sail these ships, through lightning, wind, and hail
But there's a place within the ship, that stories never reach
And there's a special breed of men, that legends rarely teach.
It's down below the waterline, it takes a living roll
A hot metallic hell, that sailors call the "hole".
It houses engines run by steam, that make the shafts go round
A place of fire and noise, and heat, that beat your spirits down.
Where boilers like a hellish heart, with blood of angry steam
Are armored God's without remorse, are nightmares in a dream.
Whose threat from the fires roar, is like a living doubt
That any minute would scorn, escape and crush you out.
Where turbines scream like tortured souls, alone and lost in hell
As ordered from above somewhere, they answer every bell.
The men who keep the fires lit, and make the engines run
Are strangers to the world of night, and rarely see the sun.
They have not time for man or God, no tolerance for fear
There aspect pays no living thing, the tribute of a tear.
For there's not much that men can do, that these men have not done
Beneath the decks, deep in the hole, they make the engines run.
And every hour of every day they keep the watch in Hell
For if the fires ever fall, their shipis a useless shell.
When ship's converge to have a war, upon an angry sea
The men below just grimly smile at what their fate may be.
They're locked below like men foredoomed, who hear no battle cry
It's well assumed that if they're hit, the men below will die.
There's not much difference down below, that every war may bring
For threat of ugly violent death, down there's a common thing.
For every day's a war down there, when the gauges all read red
Six hundred pounds of heated steam, can kill you mighty dead.
So every man down in the hole, has learned to hate so well
That when you speak to them of fear, their laughter is heard in Hell.
The men below are fools who watch, their spirits slowly die
Who can't often remember how, a cloudy sky looks.
So if you ever wrote their song, or tried to tell their tale
The very words would make you hear, a desperate spirits wail.
And people, as a general rule don't hear a dying soul
So little is heard about this place, that sailors call the Whole".
But I can sing about this place, and try to make you see
The hopeless life of men down there, "cause one of them is me".
And I've been down there so long, that part of me has died
The part that lives on without light, to be a lost hopes guide.
I've seen these sweat soaked hero's fight, in superheated air
To keep their ship alive and right, though no one knows they're there.
So when you see a ship pull out, to meet a warlike foe
Remember faintly, if you can, the men who sail below
