, The Operations Department of the U. S. S.
Steinaker and all Navy ships has a greater variety of
duties than any other department. These duties include
ofhce administration, electronic repairs, navigation,
radio and visual signalling, and search for aircraft
or submarines by radar and sonar equipment. ln
addition we even furnish our quota of mess cooks
and have qualified some expert spud pealers. Let us
briefly review each agangn of the department, their
jobs, and every day routines.
The aQuartermastern rating dates back to the
days of the earliest navies. It has a wide assortment
of duties, virtually all of which are of a sea going
nature. When the ship comes into port or goes along-
side a fleet oiler for fuel a QM is always at the wheel.
He is the best steersman on board. Our navigatoris
assistant is a rated Quartermaster who is well versed
in all phases of navigation, both piloting and celestial.
Do you know who sets all the ship's clocks and winds
them each day ? That's right, it's the Quartermaster
again. ccSpottingn flag hoists, sending and receiving
messages by semaphore and flashing light are another
of his routine jobs. The ship's log is kept by the Quarter-
masters. Many great moments in history have come
down through the ages because some long forggttm
QM 'recorded the event in the ship's log.
Something wrong with a radio, surface radar,
iire control radar, ccSonar stackn or fathoineter?
Call the ET's. Yes, this branch of technicians are
the most important rate in the Navy. On a large ship
such as a carrier, cruiser or a battlewagon, an elec.
tronic's technician is usually assigned one particular
piece of gear and it is his responsibility to keep that
gear at peak operating condition. On the STEINAKER
the ET must be a ccjack of all tradesn and able to
make repairs on many different pieces of electronic
equipment. To aid in making repairs the ET has as
fine a collection of test equipment as any good civilian
radio repair shop. Some of the more advanced fields
in which the ET's are playing an important role
include guided missiles, advanced underseas weapons
and the ground controlled approach systems used to
bring both military and commercial aircraft to a safe
landing during periods of low visibility.
Oh ,yes l I l One other important function of the
Operations Department is liberty, and we proudly-
claim the title of ccLiberty Hounds Deluxen. Mrs.
Diana of Venice will vouch for that title we are sure.
