He was considered the divine artificer and creator of all that was mechanically won- derful. In a quarrel between his parents, Jupi- ter and Juno he sided with his mother, and was thrown from Mount Glympus by Jupiter. After falling for a whole day he landed on the isle of Lemnos where he stayed and regained favor of the mighty Gods of Mount Olympus by serving as their blacksmith.

V, , ,, ,V VULCAN HISTORY USS VULCAN KAR-5l is the third service vessel to carry the name "VULCAN". Recognized by the Naval Historical Center as "the Fleet's first Repair Ship," a steamship called CHATAM was purchased by the Navy, renamed VULCAN and converted into a mobile workshop and storeship to support the U.S. warships off Cuba in the Spanish American War. The first VULCAN was commissioned on May 31, 1898 in Boston and decommissioned on January 12, 1899 in Philadelphia, having served her purpose well during the short conflict in the Caribbean. The second VULCAN was a collier Ship of 11,250 tons displacement, 385 feet in length, 53 feet wide, having a mean draft of 24 feet and maximum speed of 12.8 knots. VULCAN fthe collierl was built in 1909 and in 1911 sailed to France to supply vessels of the Atlantic Fleet, and then on to Norway with coal for the Naval Academy Practice Squadron. The collier remained at the Navy Yard in Portsmouth, New Hampshire from July 1913 to February 1914 before leaving again to join the Atlantic Fleet. In November 1915, VULCAN sailed to Haiti to load coal and stores for the Cruiser Squadron in the Cuban waters. From here she sailed to Mexico and later served entirely in the Caribbean. VULCAN was placed out of commission in Norfolk, Virginia, July 20, 1921. VULCAN IAR-5I is the first of the modern repair ships. Her keel was laid on December 16, 1939 at the Camden, New Jersey Yard of the New Yorki Shipbuilding Company. At the launching ceremony on December 14, 1941, Mrs. James Forrestal, wife of the first Secretary of Defense, broke the traditional bottle of champagne as VULCAN sponsor. Official commissioning of VULCAN was held June 16, 1941. Soon after, VULCAN was pressed into service serving in many theaters of operation during World War II. From her commissioning to December 1944, VULCAN operated in the Atlantic and Mediterranean, basing at Argentia, Newfoundland, Hvalfjordur, Iceland, and off North Africa at Algiers, Oran, and Mer-El Kebir. Her first repair job was the emergency repairs made to USS KEARNEY IDD-432l after the destroyer was torpedoed by a German U-boat off the coast of Iceland in October 1941. For her participation in the Allied invasion of Normandy during the priod August 15 through 12 10 5 History September 25, 1944, VULCAN received the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal. In December 1944, VULCAN was transferred to the Pacific Fleet where she performed vital repair and support services for Allied naval and merchant ships while based in Ulithi Atoll, Caroline Islands, and Leyte Gulf, and Phillipine Islands. In October 1945, traversing one hundred and twenty miles of mine- infested waters through the Inland Sea of Japan, the tender led a small force of service force ships to Hiro Wan. There they established a necessary and vital repair service facility in this forward area. During this deployment, VULCAN was awarded, the Asiatic- Pacific Campaign Medal for the period September 2, 1945 through March 10, 1946. In April 1946, VULCAN returned to the United States and the Atlantic Fleet for duty where she remained, fulfilling her repair mission. Based in Newport, Rhode Island in the post-war years, VULCAN changed her homeport to Norfolk, Virginia in early 1954. Since arriving in Norfolk VULCAN has continued to provide quality and vital Fleet Support services to ships of the U.S. Atlantic Fleet, earning Battle "E" Awards in 1961, 1972, 1973 and 1975. In November 1978, VULCAN became the first Naval ship, other than a hospital or transport ship, to have women permanently assigned as part of the crew. In 1979 VULCAN deployed as SIXTH FLEET tender, her first major deployment since World War II. VULCAN deployed to the Indian Ocean in 1984 and in June 1986 deployed as SIXTH FLEET tender. Her most recent accomplishments in 1987 include a successful Operation Propulsion Plant Examination, outstanding IMA audit, Supply Management, Command and 3M Inspection. In May 1988, VULCAN completed a three month DSRA, another outstanding IMA audit and began preparing for Refresher Training, in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Following successful completion of REFTRA, VULCAN returned to Norfolk and successfully completed a Supply Management Inspection. In fall 1988, VULCAN provided repair services to ships homeported in Naval Weapons Station, Earle, New Jersey. VULCAN has proudly served the FLEET for over 48 years, upholding her motto "We tend to be better". A - .ag-Q -'f' -ff -Q ,.1.,-V fr.- .. ?'Q' V - ' M t- 2Kir,Ll 5 f 5 l 4.

Over 6,000 jobs were completed, and more than 100 flyaways were made by the Repair Department. "Exceptional quality and quantity work was performed by Vulcan," read a message from USS William V. Pratt's commanding officer, "I considered the dedication and professionalism to be unsurpassed." Such quality work doesn't happen overnight. It takes hours, days, weeks, and even months of planning, accord- ing to MMCMKSWI Christian D. Bubczyk, senior ship su- pervisor. "We looked at our capabilities, man hours, and the OFFICERS LCDR John Breslin, Repair Officer . fd - , I ,,,, -. .A iii? .-- svr- . vxvf. Q , Q ' A ship's availability when considering work requested from another ship," said Bubczyk. Before committing to tend a ship the Repair Depart- ment sent flyaway teams to act as scouts. The teams did the preplanning, estimated the ship's requirements and how long it would take to accomplish the job. "We look at the job request and then determine which shop would do the work," said Bubczyk. Repair Department includes R-0, R-1, R-2, R-3, R-4, R- 6, and R-7. These divisions worked on a variety of job requests from welding to fixing typewriters. Each division is divided by occupational specialties that are suited for a specific area of expertise. 4 g f 0 A, f , 1 ,fa gg, 5.5.5 MAJQ ,a?0.3y,j33? xf fu W cw ygwxsfvgfvfefgf :rr fr wwf fy yy ,fya Mwiffjyf swf, 2 fXWQ5,v2!gv'Z"Z,'? 0'fQO772fy2?22f 5429!

I A Engineering ENGINEERING A two-fold goal was USS Vulcan CAR-5Ys Engineering Department'si plan for success during the Mediterrean deployment. Completion of all inspections and selected exercises was part of that two-fold goal, according to Lt. Don Herr, chief engineeraboard the auxiliary repair ship. "Training the personnel and making sure the equip- ment was in material condition, were the areas that we focused on during the deployment," said I-Ierr. A lot of the training took place when the engineering personnel were off duty, according to Herr. "Sometimes liberty went by the wayside due to opera- tional goals," said I-Ierr. Although engineering had their own goals to meet, they also helped other ships by never going cold iron. The engineers provided steam, water and electricity to the other ships that the auxiliary repair ship tended. To be able to continuiously keep the propulsion plants working all through the Mediterranean, engineers steamed for 4,392 hours and stood 103,224 hours on watch. "It was nothing for the engineers to stand six-on and six- off watches," said Herr. The Operational Propulsion Plant Examination was the most important examination that the engineers were working towards before the homecoming. The exam has been called one of the most thorough examinations an engineering department has to partici- pate in. "We completed OPPE with a grade of satisfactory," said Herr. It was a combine effort for the engineering department to make it through the Med and OPPE, according to Herr. "In engineering you can't segregate the divisions as in maybe Repair, or Ops, because we use all the divisions to stand watch together," said Herr. Not only did the engineers work hard in their depart- ments, but also throughout the ship. They repaired air conditioners, fixed galley equipment when it broke down and worked on the small boats.

SUPPLY The main goal for USS Vulcan CAR-5l's Supply depart- ment during the Mediteranean was to provide the re- sources, OPTAR funds, repair parts, and the supplies to support the crew and it's repair mission. '4Every month we were named the Material Control Office Super Stars," said CDR William I.. Gianfagna, the supply officer aboard the auxiliary repair ship. While deployed if a ship is capable of identifying and transferring a critical parts that is needed by another ship, they become the MATCOM Super Stars. "We were able to identify and transfer from 50 to 100 parts a month to other ships," stated Gianfagna. Teamwork is a major factor of how supply met its goals throughout the deployment. A combination of the storekeepers, automated data processing watches, and the radiomen efforts insured sup- ply's success. They received, answered, and sent mes- sages and the supplies that were needed, according to Gianfagna. Another asset to supply's success was the motivation of its personnel. "They knew while deployed that this was the biggest test for them. The deployment showed that they could do their jobs," said Gianfagna. Throughout the cruise each division of supply were able to show their skills, by receiving supplies during the six major logistics replenishments. "The replenishments were part of an all department restock," state Gianfagna. The task of replenishment calls for and organized sup- ply department. While underway the ship received sup- plies from helicopters and highline transfer between ships. Each of the five divisions of supply was part of that well organised unit that got the job done.

Armed with 1,500 gallons of paint First Division worked hard at their never ending battle against corro- sion. "We were able to accomplish over ninety percent of the painting," said BMC Leland I-I. Maxam, leading chief pet- ty officer in deck. First Division preserved and painted everything from the maindeck to boatdeck, and also over the side. Painting wasn't the only goal Deck Department accom- plished while deployed. "Getting the deck personnel PQS qualified was also an important task during the Mediterranean deployment," said Maxam. "We trained the crane operators, boat cox- swains, helms and Lee helmsman. Deck Department started out with only three qualified boat coxswain at the beginning of the cruise, but had a OFFICERS AND CHIEF PETTY OFFICERS total of 18 at the completion of the deployment. They received a lot of that training in the 1,400 liberty boat runs made in Naples and San Remo, Italy. Conducting over 1,000 crane lifts the Deck Department added another skill to their qualifications. First Division also completed over 9 percent of their PQS qualification. "We had no set plan on how to go about getting our goals accomplished, said Maxam. "We just saw it as somel thing that had to be done." Although you can't attribute the success of Deck meet- ing its goal to one single thing or person, you can attribute it to a group of people working together, according to Maxam. "The people that worked for Deck could have made First Division and the ship look good or bad," said Maxam, "I had good people and I feel that they made us look good throughout the deployment."

Department had a very rigorous and full sched- ule during the Mediterranean cruise. The jobs completed ex- P ceeded the productivity of many of the larger tenders. The services provided included: 4,500 audiograms, 7,200 lab tests, 900 x-rays, 4,500 prescriptions, 245 physical exams and 135 medical officer evaluations. Services were rendered to Vulcan crew and crews of others ships being tended. HM2 George Pierce, leading petty officer, was impressed by the professionalism and accomplishments of the department. "Everything the other ships requested was completed in a timely and professional manner," he said. "All the corpsmen involved in the cruise did an outstanding job. Their attitudes were outstanding and their rapport with the patient's was out- standing," Pierce added. Praise and compliments on the Medical Department were not limited to Vulcan personnel. Other ship's sent Bravo Zulu messages expressing their impressions of the entire medical staff. DENTAL Vulcan Dental Department maintained a full schedule and heavy flow of traffic while in the Mediterranean according to Vulcan Dental Department Head Commander Harry Over- street. "We were seeing a lot more patients because it was convenient for them to walk right next door when they were parked next to us."
