Ability

II

(MSO 519: dp. 934; 1. 190'; b. 36'; dr. 12'; s. 15 k.; cpl. 83; a. 1
40mm., 2 .50-car. mg.; cl. Ability)

The second Ability (MSO-519) was laid down on 5 March 1956 at Sturgeon Bay, Wis. by Peterson Builders, Inc., launched on 29 December 1956, sponsored by Mrs. Henry P. Williams; ferried to Boston—via the Great Lakes and theSt. Lawrence River fitted out at the Boston Naval Shipyard; and commissioned there on 4 August 1958, Lt. Comdr. W. L. Hough in command.

Following outfitting, the minesweeper put to sea on 28 August—bound for Charleston, S. C.—and, on the 29th, reported for duty with Mine Squadron (MinRon) 4. She remained at Charleston until embarking upon her shakedown cruise on 17 September. The ship conducted that training out of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and returned to Charleston on 20 October. She served with Mine Division (MinDiv) 45, operating out of Charleston through the end of 1958 and the f~rst six months of 1959. On 1 July 1959, she was transferred to MinDiv X5 as its flagship. Ability continued to operate out of Charleston, primarily in support of the Naval Mine Warfare School. She also occasionally provided support services to the Naval Ordnance Laboratory l~est Facility located at Port Everglades, Fla., and to the Naval Mine Defense Laboratory at Panama City, Fla. When not engaged in those duties, she conducted independent ship's exercises and type training along the east coast and in the West Ind~es.

Ability served as a close recovery vessel in May 1961 during the "Freedom 7" space shot. For the last two months of 1962 she supported the quarantine of Cuba brought about by the siting of offensive Soviet missiles on that island. She began that duty patrolling the Windward Passage but concluded it as a harbor defense ship for the American base at Guantanamo Bay.

The year 1963 began normally for Ability with operations out of Charleston in support of the Naval Mine Warfare School and the Naval Mine Defense Laboratory. That autumn, however she added a new dimension to her operations which would remain a facet of her service for the remainder of her career. Late in September, the minesweeper stood out of Charleston bound for the Mediterranean Sea and her f~rst tour of duty with the 6th Fleet. On 5 October, she reported for duty with the Commander 6th Fleet, at Rota, Spain. Ability spent the next four months conducting minesweeping exercises, supporting amphibious landing exercises, and visiting various Mediterranean ports. On 12 February 1964, she completed turnover ceremonies at Rota shaped a course for Charleston, and arrived back in her home port on 1 March 1964.

For the remainder of 1964 and all of 1965, she conducted operations out of Charleston in support of the Naval Mine Defense Laboratory and made voyages along the east coast and to the West Indies to participate in various exercises and to engage in refresher training Her highlight of 1965 came in December when she provided support services for the "Gemini 6" and "Gemini 7" space shots.

Early in 1966, Ability embarked upon another assignment with the 6th Fleet. In February, soon after her arrival in the Mediterranean, she participated in the search for an American nuclear device lost when two Air Force planes, a B-52 bomber and a KC-135 cargo plane, collided in midair. Otherwise, the deployment consisted of the usual exercises and port visits. Ability returned to Charleston on 13 July 1966 and resumed services to the Mine Defense Laboratory and the Mine Warfare School. That employment lasted until 11 May 1967, when she shaped a course for Montreal, Canada, to make a goodwill visit to the world's fair at that city, Expo '67. After also visiting Quebec, the minesweeper resumed her normal duties at Charleston on 9 June 1967. On 25 July 1966, Ability embarked upon her fnal Mediterranean cruise. The assignment lasted until late November and consisted of normal 6th Fleet operations—exercises port visits, and Soviet ship surveillance missions. On 30 November, she departed Gibraltar bound for the United States. The minesweeper reentered Charleston harbor on 15 December and began a holiday leave and upkeep period. During 1969 and the first five months of 1970, Ability busied herself with normal east coast and West Indies operations.

In June of 1970, she was placed out of commission to undergo extensive repairs and modifications at Todd Shipyards Corp. in Brooklyn, N.Y. The contract for her rehabilitation, however was terminated on 16 October 1970 as a result of Department of the Navy force level decisions. Determined to be excess to the needs of the Navy, Ability was struck from the Navy list on 1 February 1971. She was subsequently sold for scrapping.

1963-1965 , thanks to Jim Moore!
My name is Jim Moore SN 2nd div. on the Grove from 63 to 65, I think I can help with some history your looking for. Here goes, from Feb 15 through May 21 1963 we were on a cruse called Solant Amity IV to Africa we had a Rear Admiral as flag, a complete Marine Detachment, Band, HU-4 Detachment and an ACU-2 Detachment and a UDT Team but for some reason that's not talked about in the cruse book. Our escort was (2) DE's # 1028 &1030 making up what was called Task force 88, it was call a good will cruise.

Our transit of the Suez canal in the Spring of 1964 was the first by a foreign warship since the 1962-63 Egyptian-Israeli war. Our pilots were not canal pilots but Egyptian Naval Intelligence. and one of them put us on a sandbank in Lake Timsah on the southbound run. We had real pilots on the return trip seven weeks later.

On 14 January, 1964, the "Spiegel Eagle", as our ship is quippingly known, once again headed for the open seas. Destination: Europe and Asia Minor. The day was a bit cloudy, to say the least and for the superstitious, the day may have been indicative of the cruise. After on-loading Beachmaster Unit Two, we headed for Morehead City, North Carolina to pick up a detachment of Marines.
Our first stop was an unscheduled one at the US Naval Base, Bermuda for emergency repairs on 20 January. The change in route was a welcomed one for reasons other than repairs. We were given an opportunity to recuperate from an Atlantic rarity - a cyclone. The semi-tropical weather and beautiful scenery were enjoyed by all. Shops, hotels and entertainment spots were everywhere.
Time presses on, as do world affairs, and the ship once again found itself on the fringes of history - as part of Task Force Sixty One. The Cypress Crisis was the unforeseen event that changed our schedule. As in the Lebanon and Cuban Crisis, the Spiegel Grove was once again on hand ready and prepared. The ship was stationed off the coast of Cypress. In sixty long days, we became well acquainted with Point Sirius, our cruising area.
Mail, the lifeblood of the serviceman, was always anxiously awaited, especially during these days. Bingo became a regular Saturday relaxer and at the same time provided funds for national charities. Rumors of liberty, mail call, and everything else began and disappeared as regularly as the sun. The days were packed with readiness drills, departmental work, overall maintenance and plans for our next liberty port, where ever it may be.
On the morning of 27 February we steamed to Soudha Bay, Crete for Sixth Fleet conferences, exercises, and relaxation at beach parties. Here were ships of the large fleet ranging from carriers and cruisers to supply ships, destroyers and nuclear submarine Skate. The sight was a formidable and reassuring one. The main force was anchored outside the mouth of the bay. Our force, the USS Fremont (APA 44), USS Telfair (APA 210), USS Muliphen (AKA 61), USS Ashland (LSD-1), USS Graham County (LST-1176) was anchored within the bay.
At last, while cruising around Point Sirius, permission was granted at last for liberty at Istanbul, Turkey, crossroads of Eurasia. Preparations were made and the ship was on it's way. Again the unpredictable affairs of the world interceded and we headed back to our Cypress patrol. The situation in Cypress had changed for the worse with both Greece and Turkey threatening war at a moments notice.
On the morning of 22 March, the Spiegel Grove returned to Soudha Bay, Crete for mail pickup before turning towards the Middle East. Directly in front of the ship stood low, dark and obscure hills that seemed like shadows in the sunrise. As if a halo, snowcapped mountains decorously rose above above the hills, white and enduring.
After two days in Soudha Bay, we headed for Port Said, Egypt and the Middle East. The weather at Port Said on the 25th was cool and clear, and the port was a madhouse. There were a large number of cargo ships and oilers awaiting entrance to the Suez Canal. The Spiegel Grove was the only warship. The ship moved into the canal at 02:10.
We arrived at our first stop, the Great Bitter Lakes, at 08:30 where we anchored while a northern convoy passed. At the southern end of the canal lies Port Suez.
On 29 March, we entered the freeport of Aden for two days. The city of Aden lies at the bottom at the bottom of volcanic, barren hills. The customs, costumes, and culture of the Moslem Arabs seemed very strange and at times bewildering to us. The Arabs did not wish to be stared at or photographed because of an 'evil eye' `curse. We departed Aden on 1 April under warm skies, destination: Bahrain.
Spiegel Grove departed Bahrain on 9 April, headed for Kharg Island, Iran, and Operation DELAWAR. We were flagship for Vice-Admiral Fatemi and his staff. Spiegel Grove directed all amphibious operations during this operation. The guest of honor was the Shah of Iran, himself.
Spiegel Grove made world headlines when the wreckage of a commercial aircraft was discovered by our helicopter, flown by MAJ R. Steed, USMC, Commanding Officer of HMM-262.
It was on to Athens and Naples. While at Naples, many of the ships' crews took advantage of 3 day guided tours to Rome. After Rome, the next stop was Genoa., birthplace of Christopher Columbus. Here, many took sightseeing trips to the Italian Riviera.
On 27 May, we entered the Spanish port of Barcelona for a two day stay, and on 29 May, Spiegel Grove departed for Rota, Spain to be relived by the USS Donner (LSD-20). Base liberty was granted there and the EM club became well acquainted with the crew. From Rota, we headed for the D-Day 20th Anniversary ceremonies in Cherbourg, France - a small fishing village on the western coast of France.
We spent 4 June in this peaceful town. On 5 June, we headed for the Normandy beaches where we rendezvoused with eleven other ships representing Canada, England and France. On 6 June we headed for England.
Spiegel Grove entered Portsmouth on 7 June, the largest naval base in Britain. It reminded everyone of Norfolk, back home. Liberties were arranged to London, where the Beatles influence was quite noticeable. On 10 June, this all came to a halt, as the ship departed for home. After 159 days, we were going home. Marines and their equipment were offloaded in Morehead City, NC, and on 20 June the lines were fastened to the pier at Little Creek, Virginia. It was a long haul, over 30,000 miles.

2/14/64-put in at Gitmo Bay and had base liberty.

2/15/64-Left Gitmo headed for Panama to relieve the previous Caribbean cruise folks that were sent down when the Panamanians started shooting up the Canal Zone. Our job was to evacuate the US Citizens, if necessary.

2/19/64-Arrived Coca Sola, Panama (old Navy Sea Plane Base on the Atlantic side).
We spent most of the next 2 months tied up to the pier, except when the ship would go out to sea for gunnery, engineering, and other drills and exercises. When we were in port it was mostly pier and canal zone liberty only.

4/10/64-Left Panama headed for San Juan, Puerto Rico

4/14/64-Arrived San Juan. A good time was had by all after 2 months of confinement.(?)

4/18/64- Left San Juan headed north

4/21/64-As we Marines didn't get much training during the cruise they decided to let us land across Onslow Beach at Camp Lejuene. Some of the wives watched us wade ashore. Kind of bizarre.
1966-1967 , thanks to Dennis Corneau - WHILE IN "THE MED" IN '66 WE WERE INVOLVED IN THE RECOVERY OF A " BROKEN ARROW " ( NUCLEAR WEAPON ) OFF THE COAST OF PALERMIDAS SPAIN . THIS WAS THE RECOVERY DEPICTED IN THE MOVIE A FEW YEARS AGO STARING CUBA GOODING AND ROBERT DeNiro SALVAGE DIVING. IN A RECENT BROADCAST ON THE HISTORY CHANNEL ON THIS SUBJECT THEY ACTUALLY SHOWED A BRIEF SHOT OF " THE GROVE "
HER SHAPE AND OF COURSE HER BOW # 32 WAS PLAINLY VISIBLE.
ALSO DURING THE SUMMER OF '67 WE WERE INVOLVED IN ANOTHER " BROKEN ARROW " RECOVERY OFF THAT WONDERFUL ISLAND OF VIEQUES P.R. WE SPENT 2 1/2 MONTHS SEARCHING THE OCEAN FLOOR IN A GRID PATTERN WITH A U.D.T. TEAM AND FINALLY THE SUBMERSIBLE SUB FROM WOODS HOLE ,MA. THE ALVIN. IT WAS REALLY TOUGH STAYING IN SAN JUAN P.R. EVERY WEEK END.

1966-1968 , thanks to Tony Lutostanski!
July 1966 - Sept. 1966: Vieques, Roosvelt Roads, San Juan

Nov. l966 - May 1967: Med Cruise

Dec. 1967 - April 1968: Caribean Cruise: San Juan, St. Thomas, St. Croix, etc.
We did go to Coca Solo Naval Base in Panama but never through the canal to the Pacific. We stayed at Coco Sola for about 4-7 days then headed back to islands in the Carib.

These were the major deployments but there were smaller ones: all told we went to Caribbean nine times. To the Azores and Lisbon for two months.

THE SHIP TOOK A LOAD OF MARINES TO PANAMA CANAL FOR JUNGLE TRAINING THAT WERE ON THEIR WAY TO NAM. THE SPIEGEL GROVE ANCHORED ON THE ATLANTIC SIDE OF THE CANAL BUT WERE ABLE TO GO ASHORE AND TAKE THE TRAIN RIDE ACROSS TO THE CITY. THE SHIP WAS IN OUR REGULAR WINTER CARIBIEAN CRUISE THE WINTER OF 67-68 AND RETURNED TO LITTLE CREEK AFTER DROPPING THE MARINES OFF AT CHERRY POINT.

The Spiegel Grove visited Panama in the '67 - '68 time period. According to the Caribbean Cruise book 3-67, the ship was in Panama from Feb2 - 7, 1968. She did not transit the canal, but stayed on the Caribbean side.

We took a South Atlantic cruise in January-February, 1971. We were the Atlantic Ocean recovery ship for the Apollo 14 Space Shot. I believe I still have some pictures from that cruise. We had a mockup of the space capsule on board that we used to practice should we need to actually recover the capsule. Of course, that didn't happen. The captain for that cruise was George "Gus" Kinnear. He was a full Captain, which I found interesting for a ship like that. Evidently, he had some "higher up" connections. I say that because he was on board for 1-2 months, and the next thing we know, we're headed for the South Atlantic, and Brazil. A number of us became "Shellbacks" on that cruise, including him. He left shortly after our return to Little Creek. I believe his relief was a Lt. Cdmr. Anderson, a rank more suited for an LSD. Some years later, I saw Kinnear's name in the news. He was an Admiral and the Commander of the Sixth Fleet. When he was Captain of the Spiegel, he called himself Gator Gus. He was quite a character.

As memories of that period in my life are a little hazy, little tidbits come back to me now and then. I'll relate them to you when they do. One other thing that I remember is we almost sank in the Cheasapeake Bay on our way to an exercise off the coast of North Carolina. I believe the ballast tanks on the starboard side filled up and couldn't be pumped out. That was after the South Atlantic cruise and before we left on our Med Cruise in May, 1971.

This was my first cruise to the best of my reflection. In 1971 the Spiegel Grove was chosen to be a backup ship for theAppolo 14 space mission to the moon. We were assigned to the Southern Atlantic for duty. There were NASA officials on board along with an Appolo space capsule, a helicopter,and UDT divers. I'm not sure if the divers were a Seal team or not but they could have been. You know those guys don't mingle much with the crew they stay pretty much to themselves. Our job was that if something went wrong and the astronauts had to land in the Atlantic instead of the Pacific we were assigned to pick them up. We would drop the capsule in the water steam around and make the recovery. Needless to say we did that many, many times for training to make sure nothing went wrong. On the Bridge we had two radios in direct contact with NASA which we listened to and heard every detail of the mission. At the time we were standing port and starboard watches, 12 on 12 off. My Chief put me on the Bridge and it was my responsibility to keep the radios dialed in so we never lost communication. Well the mission went as planned and they splashed down in the Pacific so we were not called upon for the recovery. We spent about five weeks without ever seeing land. Now the fun part starts. Since we were in the Southern Atlantic we crossed the equator which makes me a shellback. The initiation was pretty brutal. Back then a military guy was government property and they could do about anything they wanted to you, which they did. One of the crew actually had to be air lifted to a hospital as a result of that process. We had two port of calls during that cruise. The first one was in Recifi Brazil. We were there for two days. The second port of call was the greatest. We docked in Rio de Jenero for six days. A little tidbit of info as a radioman I was privy to everything going on. Well on the fifth day of liberty I found out the Enterprise was coming into port. The funny part is, I didn't find out thru an official message, but thru the bars and shop owners, they knew before we did. Sure enough as we were steaming out to sea we passed the USS Enterprise in the bay.

1970-1974 , thanks to John Fodor for this information !
We went on a 6 month med. cruise in 71. We were also a support ship for the Apollo missions. I remember us having a dummy space capsule on board that we practiced with. That could have been 72 but I'm not sure. We went as far south as Brazil to wait for the Apollo space craft that was coming back from the moon mission to hit the water. It never hit our area. After our long month of waiting we went in to Rio for a week. That was beautiful. We left a week before the Big Carnival. Other than that we hop scotched the Caribbean Islands. We also did a midshipmen cruise, went through the Panama Canal, we were in the Portsmouth Shipyards for 6 months for a big overhaul, and then a shake down cruise at Gitmo. Our ship was broadsided by a destroyer that was comming out of port from Gitmo at full speed. It tore a huge hole on our starboard side. The ship was taking on water, big pumps had to be helicoptered in. No one was hurt that I remember. I just dont remember dates. Actually I served on board from April 70 to Dec.73 I came on board right out of Boot Camp. I ran the Sail Locker,while I was on board. My dad was a ta i lor so I knew how to sew. I made covers for anything that was coverable. I made BM3 while on board. Then I spent another 2 years in the reserves and made BM2.

1973 , thanks to Don Clark!
I was a Chief Hospital Corpsman, the senior medical rep on board then. We went to Columbia and took over a million dollars of surplus medical equipment, commodities, books, etc and gave to a medical facility there. I still have 2 panchos I got there. From there we went to Aruba, San Juan Pureto Rica, and to the Bahamas before coming home. That was a 3 month tour. Then we took a contingent of Marine 2nd Louies to Camp Lejune. Waters were too rough to have the landings we had anticipated. This was also a cruise where we could bring a family member. My son Gary went with me. We celebrated Halloween on board and they Captain allowed them to "trick or treat". We also had a day at sea for all dependents when in port. While preparing for a Med cruise I ruptured a disc and was transferred off.
If I can think of more I will pass it on. I know we also went to Panama, just can't remember specifics except for some of the most beautiful fish that some caught and we cooked in the Chiefs mess. We also went to Roosevelt Roads Pureto Rico. We landed troops on Vieques, sat off the coast and fished for 5 days.

19 May 1978 , thanks to Chuck Siedschlag!
On 19 May 1978 we went to GTMO for RefTra, and was kicked out due to the fact we couldn't make water. In fact, on the way down we pulled into Mayport at midnite about 19 or 20 May to get water. Went in on one boiler, as I recall as we were dry. When we left GTMO after being kicked out someone played (Take this Job and Shove It) on the 1MC. Naturally some hi-brow ADM didn't like it and sent us a blast!
We went back down about a month later and completed RefTra.

8 Mar 198 1 , thanks to Ron Brunson!
We were accompanied by the USS Harry E. Yarnell (CG-17). I remember that one because my father was a former XO back in the 1960's. You may recall that that cruise was primarily a show the flag diplomatic event where we entertained the leadership of the various island countries. The forward third of the well deck was covered with 1 inch plywood and painted haze grey as a party venue with the USMC equipment aft as a static display.
Hope this helps a bit. Regards and thanks for the memories!! Cdr Ron Brunson, USNR (ret)


LSD-32 HISTORY NOTES - 1971 TO DEC. 1973

April to October 1971 - Med Cruise (missing details of April, May, and June) - many thanks to LTJgTerry Rich!

On 3 July 1971 the Spiegel Grove arrived at Brindisi, Italy, requiring the assistance of a tugboat into the tight berth in the harbor. Our CO at the time was Captain Forrest P. Anderson. The part of the crew who had liberty on July 3rd enjoyed good Italian food and plenty of good wine. One group of sailors had dinner at a small local restaurant, enjoying various pasta dishes and their fair share of wine for dinner. They decided to order ice cream for dessert, but inasmuch as they did not speak Italian well, the server understood their order for "Spumoni" (ice cream) to be "Spumante" and brought an ample supply of sparkling wine ("Spumante") for their after-dinner consumption.

Most of the crew had liberty on July 4th, and enjoyed a splendid Independence Day celebration at the U.S. Air Force base at Brindisi (it was called the San Vito Air Station). What a good time to be in port for good old American hot dogs and hamburgers! The crew who were in the duty section on board ship had the dubious honor of hosting a throng of locals and tourists (including quite a few American college students) for tours of our fine ship. All duty sections eventually had a good share of liberty, as we remained in port until the morning of July 7th.

Getting underway on 7 July 1971, the Spiegel Grove was underway until anchoring off Navplion, Greece for a couple of days along with other ships of the squadron. While at anchorage, a daytime recreation party ("beer party") on the beach was authorized. The Mike boats ferried sailors, marines, and plenty of beer to the beach. As all were glad for the fun, sun, and beer, only one undesirable incident occurred. That was when, for some unknown reason, a marine who had probably had one too many beers called a marine captain by a clearly unfriendly name, and pulled a pocket knife and attacked the captain. Some members of the LSD-32 crew said they never saw a man taken down so fast as the drunken marine and the captain ended up on top of him, holding the knife he had taken away, and called for the shore patrol, who were already just showing up due to the commotion.

On 15 July 1971, LSD-32 got underway and anchored the next day at Izmir, Turkey. After the crew experienced the distinctively different culture, architecture, shopping bazaars, and even visits to the women's prison in Izmir, we were underway again on the 18th. After five days of routine operations, including two nights at anchorage again at Navplion, Greece, the ship reached Naples, Italy on July 23rd.

The port call at Naples ("Napoli") was the longest of any during the Med cruise - 14 days - and a very small number of the ship's company were fortunate enough to have their wives meet them there. Crew members spent time having all sorts of fun - mostly good, wholesome fun. Sightseeing, shopping for souvenirs, and either avoiding or scaring away the marauding bands of nine-year-old to fourteen-year-old pickpockets were commonplace. Some sailors also took trains to Rome ("Roma") to visit the famous historical sites located there. Some went to Italian movies, although they could not understand a word of what was said in the movie. Others went to the NATO base in Naples and played basketball or got their physical workouts in the gymnasium. A few of our sailors said that the most exciting and the most scary experiences they had in Naples were the absolutely wild taxi rides that they miraculously survived!

Not surprisingly, upon leaving Naples on August 6th a Captain's Mast was held at sea that day for certain men who had incidents of misconduct while at Naples. There were several violations of curfew, including one sailor being so late that he missed his entire pre-assigned duty watch while in port.

Guess what? Following the longest port call of the 1971 Med cruise, the Spiegel Grove had the longest period during the cruise of operations at sea and amphibious operations without any port call - 24 days. After two days at sea, amphibious operations were held at Porto Scudo, Sardinia for four days. Then, after weighing anchors, a couple of days at sea were followed by three more days of amphibious landings at Porto Scudo. Overnight watches for 16-17 August 1971 were special "sneak attack" watches, with our own SEALs working as the opposition. Underway again on August 18, 19, 20, and 21, the LSD-32 anchored overnight at Souda Bay, Crete, only to get underway again from 23-30 August, and then dropping anchor at Palma de Mallorca on August 31st.

Mallorca had to be one of the favorite ports for many sailors, with its scenic setting, beaches, and nightclubs such as "Barbarella," "Sgt. Pepper's," "The Guitar Centre," and "Daisy." There were even bullfights to attend - quite a spectacle for our men to enjoy.

After six full days at Mallorca, we weighed anchor on September 7th. One day later we anchored at Livorno, Italy, which is only a few miles south of Pisa, the site of the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. Camp Darby, a small U.S. Army base at Livorno had a club, shared by enlisted and officer personnel, which provided live music, including surprisingly excellent female singers. Some sailors also made use of the Army gymnasium at Camp Darby during the 12 days at Livorno. Late in the lengthy stay in Livorno, our ship was coming close to running out of fresh water. It was about two days prior to our scheduled departure, so a deal was made with the mayor of Livorno to purchase fresh water to be brought to our anchorage and provided to the ship. Well, the water boat did not arrive until the afternoon of September 19th, and we were due to get underway on the 20th. No problem: the Italians pumped water until the Spiegel Grove's fresh water supply was full.

The Spiegel Grove got underway on September 20th, leaving Livorno, Italy. Early in the morning of the 20th, most shipmates discovered what a few had discovered the night before: the Italians of Livorno had pumped salt water straight from the harbor into our fresh water tanks! On the morning of the 20th, coffee was made throughout the ship unknowingly using SALT WATER! On 20 September 1971 the men on board the USS Spiegel Grove drank (or spat out or puked) what might well have been the WORST COFFEE in the history of the United States Navy! That's pretty bad. For the next day or so, salt water showers were none to pleasant, either.

After only a day and one-half at sea, the USS Spiegel Grove, along with the USS Nashville (LPD-13), USS Newport (LST-1179) and another ship or two within Phibron 6 arrived on September 22nd at Barcelona, Spain for a six-day visit. Wow, can sea duty get any better than this? While in Barcelona, sailors enjoyed not only sightseeing but also the nightclubs such as "Planeta 2001," the "Plazza Discoteque," and "Big Ben's" bar.

Phibron 6 departed Barcelona on 28 September 1971. After a four-hour stop at Rota, Spain on September 30th, the Spiegel Grove proceeded independently toward the USA, eventually arriving at Little Creek, VA on 10 October 1971.

12-20 MAY 1973 - in port, Little Creek, VA

My notes for 1973 seem to correspond with the 3-MONTHS CARIBBEAN CRUISE IN SUMMER 1973 MENTIONED IN HMC CLARK'S NOTES THAT ARE ALSO POSTED IN THIS WEBSITE:

JUN. 1973 - no records or notes on hand, but believe we got underway for the Caribbean cruise in June

JUL. 1973 - in Panama, anchored near entrance to the Panama Canal, at Colon, Panama, a location that was also near the Naval Security Group Activity base at Coco Solo, Canal Zone

JUL. 1973 - in Barranquilla, Colombia - While in Barranquilla, the ship had an Open House, and droves of local Colombians showed up for guided tours. When one poor Colombian girl expressed how much she admired a large bar of soap at a lavatory, the sailor giving the tour felt so sorry for her that he just picked up the bar of soap and gave it to her. Also, our CO, Captain Miller, hosted the mayor of Barranquilla and a couple of Colombian Navy officers and their guests for a reception one evening. Somehow, it came about that a Colombian naval officer commented that his basketball team was very good and included 3 members of the Colombian Olympic basketball team. The Spiegel Grove's LTjg Reneau leaned over toward LTjg Rich and said, "We ought to play them." LTjg Rich said out loud, "Captain Miller, if it's okay with you, the ship's basketball team would like to challenge the Colombian team to a game tomorrow." Captain Miller agreed, and the Colombians jumped all over the opportunity to play. Much of the remaining conversation at the reception was by the Colombians who spoke English and their interpreter, telling us not to feel bad, but the team of one ship did not stand a chance against the Colombian Navy team that included 3 Olympic players (they told us that over and over, but did so very politely). Game time approached on the next day. The LSD-32 team, knowing what had been said the night before, decided we needed to use a full-court press in order to have any chance at all, and that we should fast-break every chance we got. We DID have a really good team. Over a 3-season span, the Spiegel Grove won 25 games while losing only 10. The LSD-32 team defeated the Colombian Navy team by an overwhelming score of 78-30. It turned out that the Colombians' 3 olympians were all forwards, and they had nobody at all who could handle the ball at the guard position. The Spiegel Grove team led by an embarrassing score of 44-13 at halftime. Even when we played subs much of the second half, the ship's team continued to run up the score. BM3 Dobbins, SN McCoy, SN Earl, and SN Tircuit played well and LTjg's Reneau and Rich played hard as well, along with other sailors whose names have drifted from memory over the decades. After the game, both teams shook hands cordially and with good sportsmanship. I have always wondered how the mayor of Barranquilla reacted when he learned the result of the game!

JUL. OR AUG. 1973 - port call in Aruba

JUL. OR AUG. 1973 - in Roosevelt Roads, PR and Vieques - gunfire support exercises at Vieques

AUG. 1973 - port call in San Juan, PR

SEP. 1973 - no records or notes on hand

Late OCT. 1973 - took a contingency of Marines to Camp LeJeune, NC

NOTE: Inasmuch as my recollections and notes of 1972 and 1973 are sketchy, I am glad that HMC Clark and BM2 Fodor have posted their remarks that include this period of time.

Likely in 1972, but possibly in 1973 - When getting underway at GITMO, the USS Spiegel Grove tore several stanchions off another ship and scraped both its hull and ours - (or it may have been when leaving Roosevelt Roads - many of the crew and officers had pretty bad hangovers that day). A pilot had the con during this minor collision, even though the Captain always has responsibility for such an incident.

Also in either 1972 or 1973 while in the Caribbean, we also took a group of Navy Nurses from their base at GITMO to Montego Bay, Jamaica for R&R and then took them back to GITMO.

Following commissioning, Adroit completed fitting out and then moved south to Charleston, South Carolina. From that port, she conducted shakedown training in the West Indies and in the local operating area. The minesweeper then began a period of almost 17 years of service with the Atlantic Fleet Mine Force. During that time, she provided services for several Navy organizations most notably the Naval Mine Defense Laboratory (after 1971 the Naval Coastal Systems Laboratory) at Panama City, Florida, the Naval Ordnance Laboratory Test Facility at Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and the Mine Warfare School at Charleston, South Carolina. In addition, Adroit participated in Gordon Cooper's Project Mercury, space shot in May 1963 and helped the Naval Oceanographic Office to conduct a test in March 1970. The minesweeper also made occasional deployments to both the Mediterranean sea and the West Indies. During her tour of duty with the U.S. 6th Fleet in the summer of 1958, she earned the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal as a result of service off the coast of strife-torn Lebanon. For the most part, however, normal operations such as exercises and goodwill port visits occupied her time overseas. While serving in home waters, she concentrated on type training independent ship's exercises, regular overhauls, and repair periods.


Navy's Of The World

The second USS Ability (MSO-519) was an Ability-class minesweeper in the service of the United States Navy.
She was laid down on 5 March 1956 at Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin by Peterson Builders , launched on 29 December 1956, sponsored by Mrs. Henry P. Williams, and commissioned on 4 August 1958 with Lt. Comdr. W. L. Hough in command.

Following outfitting, the minesweeper put to sea on 28 August — bound for Charleston, S.C. — and, on the 29th, reported for duty with Mine Squadron (MinRon) 4. She remained at Charleston until embarking upon her shakedown cruise on 17 September. The ship conducted that training out of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and returned to Charleston on 20 October. She served with Mine Division (MinDiv) 45, operating out of Charleston through the end of 1958 and the first six months of 1959. On 1 July 1959, she was transferred to MinDiv 85 as its flagship. Ability continued to operate out of Charleston, primarily in support of the Naval Mine Warfare School. She also occasionally provided support services to the Naval Ordnance Laboratory Test Facility located at Port Everglades, Florida, and to the Naval Mine Defense Laboratory at Panama City, Florida. When not engaged in those duties, she conducted independent ship's exercises and type training along the east coast and in the West Indies.
Ability served as a close recovery vessel in May 1961 during the "Freedom 7" space shot. For the last two months of 1962, she supported the quarantine of Cuba brought about by the siting of offensive Soviet missiles on that island. She began that duty patrolling the Windward Passage but concluded it as a harbor defense ship for the American base at Guantanamo Bay.
The year 1963 began normally for Ability with operations out of Charleston in support of the Naval Mine Warfare School and the Naval Mine Defense Laboratory. That autumn, however, she added a new dimension to her operations which would remain a facet of her service for the remainder of her career. Late in September, the minesweeper stood out of Charleston bound for the Mediterranean Sea and her first tour of duty with the 6th Fleet. On 5 October, she reported for duty with the Commander, 6th Fleet, at Rota, Spain. Ability spent the next four months conducting minesweeping exercises, supporting amphibious landing exercises, and visiting various Mediterranean ports. On 12 February 1964, she completed turnover ceremonies at Rota, shaped a course for Charleston, and arrived back in her home port on 1 March 1964.
For the remainder of 1964 and all of 1965, she conducted operations out of Charleston in support of the Naval Mine Defense Laboratory and made voyages along the east coast and to the West Indies to participate in various exercises and to engage in refresher training. Her highlight of 1965 came in December when she provided support services for the "Gemini 6" and "Gemini 7" space shots.

Decommissioning and sale

Hello here I go again

Ok now you are probably thinking, Oh there Duane goes again saying that he's going to catch up on all his blogs, well I just want to say I am sorry for not keeping up on my blogs, however I am starting to feel better now and really want to try and work on each and everyone of my blog at least once a week.

Currently my favorite blogs are this one, the military of the world blog, 44 college student and side stepping through life. So I am not giving anyone a promise because my health can drop dramatically with out warning.


Ability MSO-519 - History

The 1962 CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS

an event which demanded enormous materiel and personnel which came very close to the greatest demand ever witnessed in all eternity namely at ULITHI [see my story here either at the start or finish of this story http://www.godfreydykes.info/ULITHI_A_PLACE_WE_SHOULD_ALL_KNOW_ABOUT.html ]

Much happened in 1962, in my case, four of some note, and in the following order:-

1. I started the year by being promoted to the rate of petty officer at the age of 23.
2. My submarine, H.M.S. Auriga [S69], was commissioned in a tidal basin in Devonport Dockyard, in Devon, UK, the home of RG[D] - Refit Group Devonport - after a fifteen month major refit, for its second two-year service-period in Canada, based on Halifax, Nova Scotia - Prior to that I had served in H.M. Submarine Turpin [S54] based on Gosport, Hampshire, UK, which was badly mauled in 1959 in a cold war altercation with a giant Russian nuclear boat up near the ice cap - see para 3 below. The commissioning was followed by a full war work-up in the seaward end of the vast River Clyde [known as the Firth of Clyde] , on the west coast of Scotland, based In the Gareloch, a lonely loch just along the road from the small town/large village of Helensburgh, in lovely Ayrshire. The entry/exist to the loch is via a potentially dangerous waterway called Rhu Narrows.
3. After the long and exhausting work-up, we returned south to our base in Devonport from where, now turned 24, I was married to my wife Beryl in Gosport Methodist Church - now 54 years ago*. After a rushed [nay in time-terms, mean] honeymoon, we sailed for the Western Approaches [just around the corner from Plymouth/Devonport] into the Atlantic to take up station for the on-coming Cuban Missile Crisis, just one of a relatively few Royal Naval sea going Units, but with a rather large air presence [RN Fleet Air Arm and RAF] respectively squadrons from Culdrose in the south with helicopters, and St Mawgan almost due west of Plymouth with fixed wing, both airfields in Cornwall.
As you will see in a moment or so, this file will list the USN, USAF US ARMY AIR CORPS involved, but I can't find a list of the British units involved.
*In those days promotion to petty officer did not mean a change in uniform from a round cap to a peak cap
However, first open this webpage http://www.godfreydykes.info/COLD_WAR_MACHINE_CRYPTOGRAPHY.html and then scroll down to the very last paragraph and read it. In the book "Hunter Killers" Chapter 11 mentions Auriga's involvement with the Cuban Crisis using pages 62, 63, 70, 71, 73, 77, 78 and 79. The Turpin story of being attacked by a Russian submarine, is told Chapter 8, pages 44 - 50. So, we in Auriga were involved with others unnamed of unknown in the Cuban Missile Crisis.
In the January of 1963 we sailed for Halifax to join the 6th Submarine squadron and came back home in late 1965 for another refit, this time at RG[P] - Refit Group Portsmouth. I went off to other boats, Grampus [S04] being one of them, and after the refit had completed rejoined Auriga for another two year spell, this time in the 7th Submarine squadron based on Singapore. We came home to Chatham in 1968.

The Cuban Crisis is not well known or even understood this side of the Pond, but in the USA it was a major event played out for real between Kennedy and Khrushchev - at that time, by spelling Castro with a 'K', jokingly called the KKK = Ku Klux Klan. It involved no fewer than a Task Force of US Forces over FIVE times [with the vast air combat assets] the size of the British presence/Fleet at Jutland, and not one shot fired in anger, ergo not one death except by accidents!

But first, what was the Cuban Missile Crisis, how did it affect the world and separately Cuba, the USA and the UK? It is a simple story with a simple outcome but it could have resulted in Armageddon, and the world at large witnessed the potential start of World War Three - an out and out nuclear weapon war. There were three players, all protagonists [no spear carriers] namely the presidents of Russia, Cuba and the USA, respectively Khrushchev, Castro and Kennedy. Cuba, geographically, can be considered as near to the back garden of the USA, but with modern weapons sited on its territory, within striking distance of Washington DC and many of its defence bases, east and west, Atlantic and Pacific.

Khrushchev had sailed a small convoy of merchant vessels carrying large [and many] missiles, all thought to be ICBM capable, west-about through international waters, destination CUBA in the vicinity of Varadero and Guantanamo, the main naval base. Internationally, this was well published and Kennedy's first task was, with NATO backing and UNO monitoring, to stop the convoy achieving its task. In times gone by, this would have been simple, because he would have ordered a 'shot across the bows'[or even to sink the convoy vessels] to get the convoy to stop and then turn about heading east-bound, but since it was in international waters, chiefly the Atlantic Ocean, such an act would have been one of piracy, this despite the provocative actions of Russia: UNO would have frowned on such an act! So, realising that that was not an option as the convoy made ground westwards, his only hope of stopping it was international political pressure, over and above the implicit pressure brought by the UNO Security Council. Meanwhile, Kennedy had to make plans just in case the convoy made land-fall and off-loaded its deadly cargo ashore on Cuban terra firma. To accommodate this eventuality, he had to raise an invasion fleet with a large amphibious contingent and lots of support vessels to protect it. This he would use to invade Cuba on the pretext of "not in my back garden", using it as a means of self defence, and this would have been supported by the Security Council. Repeated over-flies by the intelligence-gathering spy 'plane U2 had revealed exisiting silo's already established, so the task was not just to stop the missile-carrying convoy bringing in new missiles, but to rid Cuba of existing missiles. This fleet, which was quickly formed, was the catalyst for Khrushchev to see that he was backing a loser, not to mention that he could not match the fire-power of the U.S. Polaris fleet, and whilst still hundreds of miles from the Caribbean, without undue pressure from the rest of the waiting world, he ordered a cancellation, and the convoy headed back from whence it came lead by motor vessel [MV] Poltava. It is true and relevant, so please note it, that Kennedy and Khrushchev were not outright winners or losers and each made diplomatic promises to one another so avoiding the placing of one's tail between one's legs. Khrushchev lost Cuba and Kennedy lost its missiles in Turkey's NATO bases which were pointing to Russia, and the issues were settled on a quid pro quo basis, tit for tat in modern parlance, fortunately!

During the transit of the convoy, Britain scrambled its 'Strategic Air Force', which at that time carried our nuclear deterrent [now carried by our Trident submarine fleet] and at the same time primed and targetted all 6o of our THOR missiles sited in East Anglia to Soviet/Warsaw Pact targets. Simultaneously, UK warships and submarines were deployed in various positions throughout the Channel areas and from the Western Approaches until mid-Atlantic, with a fleet of maritime patrol aircraft of Shackleton aircraft watching over areas deep into the eastern Atlantic.

The USN were used to operating in Battle Groups and in many different Fleets, and in WW2 that included, in the Pacific Islands, specialist amphibious attack groups which routed the entrenched Japanese forces. In the Korean War [1950-1953] the USN made amphibious landings, but the war was essentially a war for soldiers and air men [including navy air men]. 1962 and the Cuban Missile Crisis demanded a new and powerful fleet which was almost classic in formation. It included units up front [minesweepers] - units at the rear defending the whole group [ASW aircraft carriers [three in number] carrying both helicopters and fix wing aircraft designed to find and destroy enemy submarines - see the ### article towards the end of the story], with one, just one lone USN submarine 'U.S.S. Sea Poacher' and two heavy cruisers seaward of them designed to pick-off any threatening warship - on the flanks two massive strike/attack aircraft carriers [one nuclear] ladened with every type of attack aircraft imaginable - scores of destroyers and frigates escorting various heavy landing ships both LPD [Landing Platform Docks] from which to launch landing craft and LST [Landing Ship Tanks] prior to which the destroyers would rough-up the shore line with NGS [Naval Gunfire Support/bombards] - all supported by a phalanx of support vessels, everything from ocean tugs, oilers, gasoline carriers, tenders, attacking cargo ships, other types of stores vessels, salvage vessels etc.

I have copied this list from 'The Navy Department Library' which is a head count. Below I have associated a nomenclature to define which type of ship each was, so that the composition was clear. In all, there were 213 afloat units and nearly 150 air assets, fixed wing and rotary. Unlike the modern day [1999] USS Winston S Churchill named after our great man [whose mother was an American], the USS English in the list below has nothing to do with our country. The USS Joseph P Kennedy Jr was named after JFK's eldest brother. USS Plymouth Rock named after the site where the British pilgrims landed in 1620.

How to establish your credit history

The big catch-22 of growing your FICO Score is that you need credit to get credit, and it's difficult to open lines of credit to build your FICO Score if you don't have a good FICO Score. Fear not. You can absolutely do some things to help grow the length of your credit history. Here are a few to get you started.

First, apply for a secured credit card. A secured card is a card where you provide cash collateral for the line of credit. FICO Scores look at secured cards the same as any credit card. Most banks and lending institutions not only offer secured cards, but most also report secured card activity to the credit bureaus.

Second, see if you can get a friend or family member with good credit to be a co-applicant with you - this will help you establish your credit history. Or, see if they are willing to authorize you on their card. It's a lot to ask, but if they're willing, it's a good way to start growing your credit history.

Finally, adopt a mindset where you see the length of your credit history as part of your greater long-term credit strategy. Use your card, but keep the balances low and pay on time. If you do, you'll find yourself well on the road to building a strong credit history that you can put to work when you need credit.
