OPERATIONS DEPARTMENT , 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.
