But to the Med, the WACCAMAW was something entirely different. She was the first jumbo oiler to operate with the Sixth Fleet. To the countries bordering the sea she must have looked strange indeed. Here was a ship that should be very familiar, in fact, they remembered her name. But she was now longer, cleaner, sharper in ap- pearance, and less cluttered, with the old booms and masts replaced by smooth looking king posts. Though WACCAIVIAW was no stranger to the Med,her crew,for the most part, were very inexperienced. This would not last however for the WAC'S work was cut out for her and she turned-to with a vigor and determination that surprised even the "old salts". The ships and days flew by, the score board climbed and WACCAIVIAW steamed back and forth to all corners of the Medi- terranean. She took on all comers, Car- riers, Cruisers, Cans, Ammo ships, Reef- ers, other Oilers and, would you believe, a Submarine or two! As the days went by the crew became more and more efficient and the black oil flowed faster and faster til a total of thirty two million gallons had been pumped to the thirsty ships of the Sixth Fleet. After steaming 20,000 miles visiting places such as Suda Bay, Crete, Istanbul, Turkey, Rapallo, Italy, Palermo and Argos- tolli, Sicily, Rhodes, Athens, Greece, Val- encia, Spain, Gibraltar and, of course, Naples, Italy, WACCAlVIAW'S cruise was ended and she returned to Norfolk, Virginia. She returned a bit tired and with a few aches and pains but she'd proved her point and done her job well. Watch out Sixth Fleet, we're coming back for another round next year!

Her keel was laid 28 April 1945g she was launched 30 March 1946,was transferred by the Maritime Commission to the Navy and placed in commission 25 June 1946. By late 1951, WACCAMAW had com- pleted three tours of duty with the Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean as well as one tour with the Second Fleet in theCaribbean. After shipyard overhaul in Boston in 1952, WACCAMAW participated in various operations and exercises with boththe Sixth and Second Fleets . In September and October 1957 WACCAMAW was a member of the re- plenishment group supporting the Interna- tional Fleet in the NATO fall exercises. In the course of these exercises WACCAMAW was the last oiler to fuel the battleship USS WISCONSIN and the first to fuel the super carriers USS FORRESTAL and USS SARA- TOGA. V A much needed overhaul at Boston in the winter of 1957-58 was followed by train- ing at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. During the fiscal year of 1959 WACCAMAW completed her seventh tour with the Sixth Fleet and was awarded the U.S. Atlantic Fleet Battle Effeciency Award for Excellence. 1962 brought a new tour with the Sixth Fleet and assignments with the Second Fleet taking her to the new fuel depots at El Ferrol del Candillo in Spain and Scapa Flow in the Orkney Islands. WACCAMAW returned to the U.S. in 1963 and was again awarded the Battle Ef- feciency Award. February 1964 took WACCAMAW to a one day layover at San Diego to unload 60 tons of Project Handclasp material and thence to conversion at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, Bremerton, Washington. This conversion has become known as "Jumboi- zation" and involves replacing the midbody with a new longer midbody increasing the ship's length 93 feet and capacity by 50 per- cent. In addition to jumboization WACCA- MAW was fitted with a modified stern with counterbalanced rudder, shorter shafts and stern tubes, the latest fueling and replenish- ment equipment along with electric deck winches and cargo pumps, increased elec- trical generating capacity and new ship's store, library, barbershop and laundry fa- cilities. WACCAMAW resumed active duty 26 February 1965 with refresher training at Guantanamo Bay followed by an Assigned Shakedown Availability at Naval Ship Yard, Boston. The Availability completed WAC- CAM AW returned to Norfolk until November when she participated in the recovery of the Gemini 6 and 7 space shots as a unit of Task Force 140. She returned to Norfolk for a brief rest then joined Operation Springboard in the Caribbean. On 4 May 1966 WACCAMAW left on her tenth deploy- ment as the fir st jumbo oiler to operate with the Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean.

This involved replacing the midbody' containing the cargo tanks with a new longer midbody having about 50 per cent greater cargo tank capacity. This operation consisted of five basic steps. First the bow was cut off and retained in the drydock while the rest of the ship was floated out. Next the new mid- body was floated in, raised and joined to the bow. The third step was the transfer of the bridge structure from the old midbody to the new by use of the heavy lift crane at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, Bremerton. Next the stern section was severed and retained in drydock while the old midbody was floated out. In the last step the new midbody, with bow and bridge structure attached, was floated into the dock, raised and joined to the stern. Although replacement of the midbody was the single big- gest change, many other important improvements were made during conversion. A major modification was made to the stern including a new counterbalanced rudder, new stern casting and struts, and new shorter propeller shafts and stern tubes. The latest design in fueling and replenishment at sea equipment was added including kingposts with out- riggers, ram tensioned span wires and high lines, electric hydraulic winches, cargo elevators, helicopter pick-up area, and sliding blocks and cargo drop reels at replenish- ment stations. The pumping capacity was improved by the addition of new larger capacity electric driven cargo pumps, larger cargo piping and double hose fueling rigs. An auxiliary diesel generator plant developing 4500 KW was installed to provide power for the deck machinery and cargo pumps. Enclosed space was provided for stowage of fleet cargo, bottled gas and fleet mail. Habitability was improved by the air conditioning of all office and living spaces, installation of a new ship's store, library, barber shop and additional laundry equipment. --L 3 1 E 5 F E J 3 1 '1 I a - 1 I t S - , .JP 4-a.

More important, you of WACCAMAW have developed a reputation enjoyed by few ships - com- batant or auxiliary. You did the job when it most needed to be done. You broke several records of long standing such as number of ships replenished during a deployment, time from approach of a customer ship to commencement of pumping and the like.

The nine day crossing of the Atlantic was uneventful except for the sightings of whales, porpoise, and one small sailing craft carrying two men to Europe. Then, on 13 May, the rugged coastline of Spain appeared and WACCAMAW dropped anchor alongside the USS SEVERN at Rota. After relieving SEVERN and "chopping" to the Sixth Fleet, WACCAMAW departed Rota on 16 May and entered the Mediter- ranean Sea. Right away she got a taste of what was to be expected of her for the next five months as units of TASK FORCE 60.2 came at her in quick succession. The new crew members learned their jobs quickly and turned to, intent upon showing just what a Jumbo oiler could do. She was going to be the best or know the reason why! That first week also saw WACCAMAW to the most easterly point of her cruise as she transitedl the Dardanelles, crossed the Sea of Marmara, and arrived at Istanbul, Turkey, on 24 May. After spending seven days at Istanbul, WACCAMAW departed 31 May to conduct amaj or under way replenish- ment with TASK FORCE 60.2 as they again ,crossed the Sea of Marmara. By this time the fuel load had been drastically reduced so a refueling stop was made at Suda Bay, Crete. WACCAMAW ar- rived there on 4 June and, on 6 June, de- parted for Rhodes, where she rejoined the task force on the 7th. After spending three very enj oyable days in Rhodes , WACC AMAW was again underway, carrying out her as- signed mission. J une 20th saw WACCAMAW entering the port which would be her second home during the ensuing months, Naples, Italy There the fuel load was "topped off" and on 29 June, WACCAMAW set sail for Pollensa, Majorca, where units of the Sixth Fleet were gathering to hold discussions on the forthcoming exercises. WACCAMAW left Pollensaon1July and arrived at the beautiful Italian Riviera City of Rapallo on 4 July. On 10 July WACCAMAW sadly departed Rapallo for eleven hard- working, difficult days at sea. 21 July saw her in Naples for a one day fuel loading followed by another difficult two weeks at sea. Having arrived on 1 August, WAC.. CAMAW relaxed for five days at Palermo, Sicily, before another ten days at sea and a return to Naples, on 15 August, for a fifteen day Tender Availability. Upon completion of the Tender Avail- ability WACCAMAW departed Naples and steamed for the Greek port of Argostoli where she had the pleasure of refueling the submarine USS TRIGGER. On 1 September she departed Argostoli for a five day trip terminating at Athens, Greece. For ten days WACCAMAW anchored in the bay at Piraeus while the crew saw the sights and toured the ruins of ancient Greece. Then, on 16 September, she left for another arduous ten days at sea. On 26 September, WACC AM AW visited Naples for the last time this cruise. She left there on 1 October to begin her homeward journey. Arrival at Valencia, Spain on 5 Octoberwas followed by two disappointing days because wind conditions prevented the Liberty Boats from reaching the shore. WACCAMAWth6I1 set sail on the last leg of her cruise with the Sixth Fleet, arriving at Gibraltar on9 October. After being relieved by the USS CALOOSAHATCHEE, she began the long trip to Norfolk. Eleven days of steady steam- ing at "max" speed raised the familial' coastline on the horizon and as WACCA' MAW negotiated the last mile of her 20,000 mile journey, the friends and families left behind 170 days before were once again Un the pier waiting to welcome home the well trained men who made up WACCAMAVWS "salty" crew. WE RE EMBER ROTA, SPAIN , Rota is a small settlement on the coast of Spain and is primarily a naval base. It is near Cadiz whose history dates back to its founding by the Phoenigians circa 1100 B.C. Cadiz reached its zenith of prosperity and importance with the discovery of America when it became the European emporium for the new world. Cadiz has long been the center of the Spanish-Americ an trade though the commerce of the port was reduced with the separation of the Spanish Colonies. There is very little industry in the areas around Rota and Cadiz, the economy being based on trade with the U.S. and other American countries and on farming it being an area of great fertility. ISTANBUL, TURKEY Istanbul is the only city in the world located on two continents. Here Asia meets and mingles with Europe not only physically but culturally as well. The city is built on seven hills and is split into three different sections. The Bosporus, anarrow waterway which connects the sea of Marmarawiththe Black Sea, separates Asiatic and European Istanbul. The European side of the city is divided by an arm of the Bosporus, the fabled "Golden Horn". A city of over two million people, Is- tanbul is the business, comercial and cul- tural center of Turkey. Istanbul began as a Greek settlement, founded in 685 B.C. as Byzantium. It was under the domination of Persia, Macedonia and Rome. In 423 A.D. the cityfell to Cons- tantine who renamed it Constantinople. The modernization of Turkey was started in 1908 and in 1924 the new Turkish Republic moved its capital from Constantinople to Ankara, and officially renamed the city Istanbul. Istanbul will be remembered chiefly for the unusually large number of American automobiles and the variety of foodstuffs available. Food specialties are Shish Kebab, Doner Kebab, Shish Koftesi fmeat roasted on a spitj, ZeytinyagliYaprak Dolmasi Qrice in vine leavesi, Pilic Dolma fstuffed Chickeny, Fish, -lobsters and steak, all served with sparkling wine or beer. SUDA BAY, CRETE Suda Bay is one of the many minor cities along the northern coast of Crete. It lies just east of the capital, Canea, in a splendid natural harbor which has been used by the British Navy as an operational base On several occasions but has not been devel- Oped into a port. The island of Crete has very little to offer in the line of interesting history. It was essentially an inhospitable land with little rainfall and few natural resources. 'R ie, During classical Greek times, Crete remained abackward, semi-barbaric region divided into numerous small sovereignties. The industry of Crete is virtually limited to the processing of agricultural products, olive and grape presses, cheese factories , flour mills , tanneries and the like. The Cretans are a very friendly people who enjoy the many outdoor cafes and taverns which abound along the city's main streets.

It is beautifully Situated on a bay of the Tyrrhenian Sea, at the foot of Mount Pellegrino. It is the seat of the regional government of Sicily and is the chief port with large Shipyards and a dry dock. The founding of Palermo is attributed to the Phoenicians. In the 5th century B.C. it passed to the Carthaginians and was subse- quently ruled, in turn, by the Romans, the Vandals, the Goths, the Byzantine Empire, the PALERMO, SICILY Moslems, the Normans, the Spanish and the Italians. In World War II, it was captured by the Allies in July of 1943. Palermo is more industrialized than other island cities. It produces steel, chemicals, cork, textiles, processed foods and wine. It is a rather large city and enjoys arelatively high standard of living. Much of Palermo was destroyed during World War II and very little remains to show its historic past. ATHENS, GREECE No other city in the world has had so glorious a history as Athens, the city of the goddess Athena. Blessed both by nature and the Gods, the city, during the classical era, attained the highest ideal of greatness, beauty and truth that has ever shone forthfrom human intellect and inspiration. Its history, as with many other ancient cities, is clouded by the mists of time but more than supplemented by colorful Greek mythology. Athens was inhabited at the end of the Neolithic Era, three thousand years before Christ. In the 7th century B.C. the Royalty system of ruling was replaced by a new con- cept - Aristocracy. After many years of Aristocratic Dictatorship came the ultimate concept of Athenian Democracy. Athens today is a city of rich contrast. One may sit in an ultramodern hotel and gaze out at the ancient buildings of the Acropolis. In all directions can be seen the evidence of the once gr e at civilization which inhabited this ancient land. The downtown area of Athens shows the contrast in narrow, winding streets occupied by modern stores and shops. The Athenian people are very friendly and kind and are fiercely proud of their heritage. They are a colorful people with a colorful language. Athens has other interesting places. There are flower filled parks and restaurants, espe- cially the picturesque taverns of the Placa, with their vivid color and romantic decoration where one may dine on squid or octopus served with golden "vRetsina", the famous wine of Athens . VALENCIA, SPAIN Valencia, capital of a province of the same name, is located on the banks of the Guadalavia river on the east coast of Spain. It was an im- portant city in Roman times and was destroyed by Pompey in 75 B.C. and was long the capital of a kingdom of Valencia until unification into modern Spain in 1319. It is now a major city and a great tourist attraction noted for its fine silks ,leather goods , pottery and wines. It is a large city with many plazas or gar- dens throughout the downtown area. There are many fine night clubs which offer entertainment in the form of native dancing and singing. The city has a fascinating history but is re- membered by most Americans as the city El Cid saved from the Moors. The surrounding beaches make it an interesting sun bathing resort. The region around Valencia is inhabited by small farmers and much ofthe best land is already irrigated. The land is so fertile that its inhabitants call it "A piece of Heaven on earth". GIBRALTAR Gibraltar is a combination of town, rock fortress and naval base. It is a British Crown Colony situated on a peninsula about two and thfee-quarter miles long and three-quarter miles wide. The colony has an area of two and 0116-quarter square miles and is joined to Spain by a low, sandy isthmus about a mile Iona and half a miie wide. Q The Rock of Gibraltar, a towering, jagged llmestone promontory, rises almost sheer at the north end of the peninsula and extends Swthward some two and a half miles. It has a maximum height of 1,396 feet. The Colony consists of the Northern Town, facing the harbor and including the business area, and the South Town, or civilian area. A Free Port, Gibraltar has an extensive ship- ping and transit tradeg is an important fueling station, and a popular tourist place. Its indus- tries are small and only of local importance. Gibraltar was captured by the English in 1704 and though attacked and besieged many times since they have held it. Tradition has it that the British will possess Gibraltar as long as the famous Apes inhabit the Rock. .rf 7' 5 1 -n Q- X X 'Na 9 N 1 :K ,tu ,.f-,A, 'Q -QQ! WE H ORK TO DO vw : rg' .fa '- wg ' . ffl?
