or 182 and a Wakeup!!
28 July 1972. Some looked forward to it. Most did not.
Nevertheless for all it marked the beginning of an adven-
ture in many ways- in patience if nothing else. One day out
of Norfolk it was time to pick up our constant companions,
a few good men, the troops of the 34th Marine Amphib-
ious Unit. In less than 8 hours the five ships of Amphib-
ious Squadron FOUR had loaded aboard 1500 plus marines,
their vehicles, equipment and supplies and were headed
due east. Next stop for most-the unknown.
lf. Q N ' f
The name of the game was amphibious
landing. TRENTON, as a member of Amphibious
Task Force 61 was primarily charged with the
mission of putting her embarked marines and
their equipment ashore and supporting them
during inland operations. The TRENTON and
her units, USS IWO JIMA with Task Force 61
staff, 34th Marine Amphibious Unit staff, HMM
263 Marine Helicopter Squadron, and KILO
company, USS CHARLESTON with troops,
supplies and assault craft, USS PENSACOLA
with UDT personnel, assault craft and tanks,
and USS BOULDER with marine vehicles, cause-
ways and LVT's all combined to form a balanced
and integrated amphibious landing force. The
next few pages capture pictorily the essence of
TRENTON's and TG 61's mission for MED 2-72.

If there is any one particular department that
is kept up in the air about things while we are
deployed, these are the men in charge. Between
supplying airlifts for the marines during various
exercises and taxi service from ship to ship, the
flight deck is kept busy. Without this air service
ham radio operations on our transit from the Med
would not have been possible.

From boats to bullets, from paint to that
special kind of paper, the Deck Department was
in there doing the job. Keeping a ship the size
of TRENTON looking sharp was not an easy
task, When we anchored off the shore of a liberty
port, the BM's were always there to provide
boating whether it be hot or cold, wet or dry-
liberty and the pursuit 'of happiness were at
stake. When it was time to demolish another
defenseless barrel, 3rd division always had the
guns and fire control equipment ready for action.

that they were responsible for the steam which

Here is where the official business is handled.
The personnelmen handle leave papers, personnel
records and order Navy correspondence courses.
The yeomen handle official correspondence of
the command and also keep the crew up to date
on what's happening each day with the Plan
of the Day. The mail clerk is probably the most
liked person in "X" division as he distributes
mail, keeping us in touch with our families and
friends on our deployments.

The TRENTON is almost 1007: Navy---except
for our two resident Marines, lst LT Hughes and
GYSGT Docherty. Theirs is the difficult job of
acting as buffer between the embarked marines
and ship's company. At times they are really
pressed. AS the title "Combat Cargo" implies
they are equally responsible for orderly stowage
and handling of all marine supplies carried
to the field. Our hats off to you.

of sick sailors, some of their more glamorous

And here are the Stargazers and Sunworshipers.
If you don't believe us, take a look at the anxiety
on the Naviguesser's face when the LORAN is
down and clouds are covering that sun. Hated a
little when headed East but, the "in" group when
returning home, the N division gang is the one that
kept you off the rocks and guided you to all of those

The 02 level is the home of the division that
make up operations. Located in CIC, the men of OI
Division, called Operations Specialists, fformally
RADARMEND, keep track of contacts in the air and
keep us from hitting other ships at sea. The radio-
men are communicators of TRENTON. Whether it
be a conversation between ships or a telegram to
the states, these men handle it. On the signal
bridge, the second part of OC Division, the Signal-
men silently communicate with other ships via
flashing lights or flags. The responsibility of
keeping the RM's communication equipment and
OS's radar working is the job of Electronic Tech-
nicians of OE Division. It takes hours of work at
a time, but the job gets done.

If it concerns food, parts, or pay,this is where
the action is. Keeping a ship with 900 sailors fed
is a hard job. But the men of S-2 and S-5 Divisions
provided the Officers and crew with three meals a
day. Occasionally a cookout on the flight deck
was given and proved to be a welcome event.
Needed parts for shipboard equipment were
processed and provided by S-1 division. Every
two weeks the disbursing clerks of S-4 division
were the most popular people onboard TRENTON.
And when payday was over, the ship's servicemen
were ready to take all that cash back at the ship's
store or the soda fountain. That explains why they
did a SS100,000 business during the cruise. Finally
a tribute to the other members of S'3 division, the
laundrymen who kept us in clean clothes, in spite
of flaming dryers and holiday routine.
