Subject: Death of Boatman - Sidney Evans I wanted to take a moment to let you know that my father, Sidney Evans, who served on the U. S. Edisto from about 1947-1950. I don't know if you mention the passing of the World War II Veterans in your publication, but if you need information regarding his obituary he is listed at Neil Funeral Home in Cleveland, Texas. He fell last September and had been in ill health since that time. He peacefully passed away on the 22nd of July 2017. He was 90 years old. Thank you, Pat Keenan (daughter)

I am not a sailor. My grandfather, Captain Griffith C. Evans Jr. was. :) Many a happy hour we spent looking out the bay window at sailboats. "Not dead....just gone to sea."

My father's name is Shuford Jack Wiggins. He served aboard the USS Edisto in the late 1950s. I have a copy of his card certifying that he crossed the Realm of the Artic Circle on 3 June 1957. Dad died Saturday, January 7, 2017. He had a long naval career, and was devoted to his Navy, community, and family. I would love to contact or be contacted by sailors (or their families) who sailed with him. Respectfully, Michael Wiggins

It's getting close to the 20th anniversary of my Dad's passing (also Joe Bonfitto). I was curious to see if there was a site for the Edisto. I know he was proud to serve and of his time on the Edisto. I believe he was a Chief Petty Officer but I'm not sure of the dates. I do remember seeing the pictures and hearing the stories. Still miss him. I'm posting this for him. It's great to see that you guys stay in touch.

My brother, Paul E. Borusky, served on the Edisto sometime in the late 1950's early 1960's. He was a radioman in the Air Force before joinng the Navy so I presume he served in some capacity involving radios. Sadly Paul died 12/17/2009. I thought I'd let anyone from the Edisto who might be interested know this

Just a note to let all know that my Dad passed away on Monday March 31,2014 at the age of 88. He is survived by his wife of 63 yrs Clarona, a daughter Debra, son Steve and nephew Terry(who was raised with the family). First posted: Joe Kotzur Comments: Greetings to the officers and crew of the USS EDISTO(AG-89/AGB-2) from Joe Kotzur SA on board 1947-1948. After serving 26 months in the U.S. Army's 86th Division in the ETO and the South Pacific in WWII, I was discharged in May 1946. I joined the U.S. Navy in March 1947, reported to San Pedro, California and was assigned to the USS EDISTO AG-89 and was on board for it's commissioning ceremonies March 20, 1947. I was on the shakedown cruise to Boston, then to the Artic Circle. I also was part of the Second Antarctic Development Project(Operation High Jump) via Panama and on into the Ross Sea on November,1947. Also back to the East Coast in March 1948 and another tour to the far north. While on a leave home, I received word I was assigned to the 2nd Fleet at the NOB, Norfolk, Va. After several years there in the Admiral's Flag, 2 years of Shore Duty in Orange, Texas, and 3 to 4 years on the USS CORAL SEA, I left the Navy, honorably December 27, 1956 after 10 years, returned to Texas with July 12, 2004 21:02:25 (GMT Time)

My father was aboard the USS Burton Island and also the USS Edisto for Adm. Byrds Polar Expeditions. Not sure of date and dad is not in good health now days but I remember he always talked of being with the Admiral. I have seen his Discharges and both ships are noted. He said he had been on 2 tours to the pole once with the Admiral to both and once without both poles. I know finding info on Operations Hijump and Windmill can be hard at times and he said he was on both. His name is Smn. James Swearngin. Would appreciate hearing from anyone with photos or info. God Bless and thank you all for your service. Dad retired from the US Army in 1975 after serving in WWll Army, Navy 1946 to 1959 And 2 combat tours of Viet Nam.

Dad passed away at his home peacefully. I loved to hear his stories of his Navy service and his short time on the USS Edisto AG 89. He was very proud to be a Plank owner and displayed it proudly. I followed him by serving in the US Army and recently retired from it. Dad was 86 when he died and would have loved to attend another reunion if he could have. I know he is having a reunion with all his shipmates that have passed on before him. Best regards Steven D. McKinnon, MSG(ret)USA

Greetings to all the crew of the USS Edisto AGB2, Its been a long time.I went on board in Boston while the Edisto was in dry dock after EM and movie operator school in Great Lakes.I was the only crew member that had open gangway because I ran all the movies both in and out of port. An era of my life that will never be forgoten. It was a character building experience and a once in a life time oppertunity

Reminder that the upcoming reunion is all set for Sept 18-22, 2013 in Nashville, TN. If you are planning to attend, then I advise you to make your hotel reservation now because it is easier for me to get the room block increased now than when we get near the cutoff date. If you would like the particulars on the reunion (cost, hotels, tours, etc) then email me and I will send.

I was born 18/09/1930 and I guess a lot of my shipmates have gone to sea.don't rember a lot of them. There was mr. Bruwn(from NewJersy). He was my buddy.We were stationed in Boston'Mass.Had a big polor bear schaching on side of ship near the cally & our bunks. Iwent up to see what it was his paws was only inches from rail. we were stopped& it was 12:00 a glock at night (day) Great to remember it all at 81yrs old.WE WERE At THOULE GREENLAND.It was hard to eat when we werte breaking ice.Also tied ourselves in our bunks or else we would be on the deck.Tanker behind us got a cut in her side & we had to stay put for 4 days had to rock the ship for awhile to break lose.We called the Ediso the pregent lady by her looks.Had her in dry-dock in Boston for quite a while. Two big screws turning--''All ahead full'' and hit the v in the ice.

Thank you for the website. LCDR Frank Gerecke was my uncle. By the time I was born he had retired from the navy and was working for LILCO at the Shoreham Nuclear Plant. He didn't talk too much about his service, as some of it was still classified until shortly before his death. Some probably still is. Thank you again!

Greetings from Kansas and thanks for putting this sight together. My uncle Herbert F. Orrison came on board in 1953. He was along for Operation Deep Freeze in 1956. Ever since childhood he was my favorite uncle. He always promised me some of his Navy Papers when I got older. The last time I was promised the papers was on a visit to his home in Tucson, Az. in 1990. Sadly he passed in the late 90's. About a year later my father (Herb's brother) went to visit one of their sister's. He brought home Uncle Herb's Navy Papers for me. In this batch of papers I got his Operation Deep Freeze paper and the "deed" to a 100 ft. by 100 ft. plot of land in Edisto Acres!! I still have and cherish both items. Thanks again for putting this sight together and allowing me to talk about my uncle Herb. I loved and miss him very much. John Orrison

Captain Griffith Evans was my commanding officer on USS Everett (PF-8) Hong Kong Station ship and during Korean War cruise 1952-53. The following is a quote from my book, By Dead Reckoning: I salute Captain Evans, his officers and the top petty officers who trained the crew. They kept us focused on our mission and brought us all safely to port after each deployment in dangerous waters. We crew members reported to our GQ and watch stations when called; we did our duty in mine-infested waters on a defective vessel that the Navy, back in 1944, should never have accepted in the first place. I am honored to have been a part of that crew. I am privileged to have had a role in the defense of the Four Freedoms in a part of the world that never knew the blessing of liberty and democracy until Americans fought and died to win it for the people there.

"As a former ships cook (alias Stewburner..Bellyrobber etc. I'm sure you all remember the seven(7)course meals we prepared while underway...OK..OK maybe thats a little stretch) but we had a great hard working ships crew. I learned today we have had a phenomenal increase of past crew members joining our USS Edisto Assocciation the last few months since Glenn Smith started publishing the KEE BIRD, a newsletter two or three times a year. Always a pleasure to read.Also having our fourth reunion in Baton Rouge, La. in May 2009. Also heard a lot of great comments on the website appearance and structure that is managed by our WebMaster John Herrmann "

I was a helicopter pilot from HU 4 and went on the Deep Freeze Operation, 12-'64 to 3-'65 to build Palmer Station. It was a great adventure to say the least. We had a Sikorsky H 19E and a Bell H 13M to fly. On the way back we pilots got qualified as Officer of the Deck of a Deep Draft Ship. Quite an achievement for a junior aviator. It was a well run, easy going fun ship to be on. Cdr. Nickerson (sp) was the captain and since we operated independently he was also task force commander. This latter title gave him a lot of to meet other ships of other navys and explore the area in addition to building Palmer Station on Anvers Island.

I boarded the Edisto in Boston before she sailed for Palmer Station (to build the station) on 10 December 1964. I would like to hear from anyone who remembers that cruise. I was a remember of the four man Navy crew that wintered over that year. Does anyone who was on board remember the "chair making" contest onboard. Our furniture never arrived on station.

I was aboard the MIGHTY E from Jan.'50 to Sept.'50. I was an AG3 and TDY. I made 3 trips north crossing the cicle 3 times. The memories of my short stay have lasted all of my life, a great ship, with even a greater crew. I am looking for a model of the ship, if anyone can help, PLEASE call. I will try to make the next reunion.

Glenn, thanx again for the phone call last week...Hope to be able to make the reunion this May, sorry to have missed the last one. I have had e-mails from Rich Howe, funny how it goes, have lived here in Topeka for 28 years and just lately found out Rich also lives here. I was the photographer aboard in 64 when we went to Anvers Island to build the weather station, PH1 Tawney was my b-o-s-s and I have many great memories of the cruise. I still have a lot of the pictures and occasionally check them out. After leaving the ship, one of the last before turning it over to the coast guard, and by the way, I never received any of the booze that was found in the hold, I went to Lemoore Naval Air Station, had a great duty, got to do a lot of flying with the Blue Angels, taking air photos for PR. I also finally got to put the third stripe on, I retired in 1972, moved to Portsmouth, NH for a coupla years then back to Topeka Kansas. Hope to see you guys in May 2008.

My grandfather, John R. Althouse (SN,51) died on October 30, 2007. He fondly remembered his time in the Navy, and I loved to hear his stories of the Arctic. He had hoped to attend a reunion- but we know he will be there in spirit. I miss him greatly- I find that learning more about the things that he had loved keeps him close to my heart.

Memorial to Frank J. Cluba AMM1 August 1, 1947 Sixty years ago today he became the first crewman to be fatally injured aboard the Edisto when he backed into the tail rotor of the helicopter. I can't recall ever talking with him but I admired him. I was a mess cook at the time and I noticed him in the mess hall with his clique that always sat by the scullery. I guess him to be 25 when he died. I wonder if he left a widow and children. Rest in peace Frank Posted by Virgil Paulk

Hi Guys, Enjoyed your web site. I was a crewmember of USS Arneb, Deepfreeze '62-'63. Edisto was a hard working breaker, along with Glacier and USCGS Eastwind. I was a QMSN at that time.

I reported aboard the Edisto in June 1964 at Boston, MA right after graduation from Tufts University as a brand new, extremly green Ensign when Norval Nickerson was Captain. I departed one year later for Nuclear Power and Submarine School. I resigned from the Navy in December of 1969 as a Lieutenant, qualified in submarines and the Weapons Officer of the USS Seawolf SSN 575. From my Edisto experience, I realized the nuclear Navy did not have to be as uptight as it was to get a job done properly. I will be ever thankful for the real life seagoing learning opportunities that I received from the experienced petty officers, chiefs, warrants and officers on board Edisto. My wife and I have been to the Antarctic and the Arctic fairly recently on Danish and Norwegian ships, respectively, both ice hardened and capable of some ice operation. I think she finally began to understand why I was so upbeat about the three polar trips that I experienced on Edisto. The Arliss II rescue was my last operation in the real Navy before leaving for the nuclear Navy. And therein lies a very complicated story.

I am saddened to report that my father, Donald F. Schomaker, stationed as a helicopter crewman on board the USS Edisto in (I believe) 1952, passed away last week in Jacksonville, Florida. He was a lifelong supporter of the US Navy (he got me to sign up!), and liked to reminisce about his time on the Edisto, and the USS Midway, on which he also served. He will be missed, and I would appreciate any word from any old-timers here who may have met him on board.

I was one of two Aerial Photographers(AF2) assigned to temporary duty on the Edisto AG89. We sailed from Boston and visited Newfoundland, Greenland and Iceland during the winter of '88-89. On the cruise, we lost the helicopter in Argentia. I was supposed to be on that flight but was bumped by VIP's. The guys in the rear seat were rescued but the pilot was trapped by the instrument panel and lost when the copter sank through the thin ice where we broke our way into the harbor the night before.I have a couple hundred pictures taken on that trip(the photographer, remember)many from the chopper and all in B&W.The trip was very rough and bitter cold but I wouldn't take a million dollars for the experience. Some of my best sea stories were from the Edisto...Bill Freeland 4/28/2007

I obtained my father's (Joe Poirier) DD-214 from my step-mother and noticed he was stationed onboard the Edisto. He spoke often about his time in the Navy, the places he had been and friends he had made. He passed away in 94 of cancer. I'm also in the Navy, stationed at VAW-126 in Norfolk, VA. Nice site, glad I was able to get a glimpse of what he did before I came into the world! AMCS (AW/SW) Cheryl Poirier

SIXTY YEARS AGO TODAY March 20, 1947 The USS Edisto AG-89 Was commissioned into the US Navy San Pedro, California I reported aboard five days later to find a brand new ship. The bunks with new mattresses were waiting to be claimed by arriving crewmen also new lockers awaited them. The decks were varnished and beautiful like found in expensive homes today. They didn't last long. Bos'n Burger set the deck force to holy stoning them till they were bleached raw boards. I don't remember who assigned me to mess cooking in the CPO Dinning Room but the first man I remember meeting was Nathan Butchard. He and I served the Chiefs their meals, brewed their coffee and washed their dishes. I recently made contact with Nathan. The few shake down cruises outside the break waters in San Pedro gave me a preview of the rolling nature of the Grand Old Lady, the Edisto. I came aboard at nineteen and left at twenty. Just a dumb kid along for the ride. I didn't learn what we were doing and where we were till recently. I wouldn't take anything for my experiences aboard the Edisto and would love to relive them. Happy Birthday Old Girl Where Ever You Are And greetings to all you Plank Owners And all others who sailed on her. Virg

I reported in the spring of '65. I was an Ens at that time and served as cic officer and managed ship's office for awhile before the ship was turned over to the coast guard. I remember LCDR Higgins as exec officer, LT "Molly" Picher as ops boss. There were 2 co's. I don't remember the first , but the second was CDR Wash . I made one trip across the the arctic circle. When Edisto was decommissioned I reported to the USS Hyades which happened to be in Boston for repairs. I have a number of slides of the trip North. I did not know of the existance of this organization. I'm still working as a mathematics teacher at a high school in Maryland.

The big storm Ivan put a very hugh oak tree across my house and completely destroyed my bed room. after fighting with the insurance and getting the house repaired I was without power for nine months and I have just had my puter repaired. I went on to retire and now live alone. I buried my wife on valatine day 1993 She passed away from brain cancer. We were married 32 years.

That would be so good. If you wonder who I am I was the one with the cigar permately fixed to my mouth

HI, my name is Sara. My father Jerry was there on the first reunion and had the time of his life! He was so proud to be a part of that. I just wanted everyone to know how much I appreciate all that you do for the men at these reuinions and how great it makes them feel. And I would especially like to thank Glen, for all the wonderful information he sent to me on my dad and his time aboard. I have included my mother Kathy's email incase anyone wants to get in touch. Dad lost his 15 year battle with cancer in May, it was his time to finally rest. Thank you again for everything that made my dad smile at some of his hardest times:) Sara Allison

Some things to pass on from my mother about Willie Mault. He told her that what I had done for him was the greatest thing that anyone could have done for him in his entire life. Getting back together with old shipmates and feeling a sense of comraderie again. It just seems that the people that live right next door to you will never be as good a friend as someone you have served with in the U.S. Military. Amen. I am very glad that he had a chance to talk to some of ya'll again and hopefully it brought back some fond memories of getting "out on the ice" with the penguins. He always talked about that when I was a youngin, but I thought maybe he got loose in the penguin cage in the local zoo and bumped his head. I never thought that he was actually telling the truth. Hmmmmm. Sea stories, aren't they great? God Bless and Thank you for your service.

I feel very lucky to have served aboard the Cutter Edisto because of the many Arctic and Antarctic adventures I participated in and to sail with a great crew! During my service aboard Edisto as an SNQM and QM3 the ship deployed to Operation Arctic East 1967, Operation Arctic East 1968, and Operation Deep Freeze 1969. Each cruise had important missions to complete. In 1967 we assisted in repairing the underwater cable between Thule and Labrador, and participated with the Cutter Eastwind in an unsuccessful, but interesting circumnavigation attempt of the Arctic Basin. In 1968 we participated in radiological survey operations after the crash of a B-52 into Wolstenholme Fjord. The Antarctic deployment was the longest and most interesting cruise we made. However, we had to battle alot of bad weather and overcome serious power plant breakdowns, in order to return to Boston on schedule. I know that my service aboard Edisto inspired me to continue my Coast Guard service in the active USCG Reserve for another 23 years after being discharged from active duty in 1970.

Greatest Ship and Greatest Crew the navy ever launched,I was an EM2 and also Movie Operator, but I was best known for the 190 proop pure ethyl alci that only I had ascees to, it was supposed to be used only to clean electric generators, I always used Carbon Teck, When a fellow engineering department wanted a little juice, they over the PA system would call for duty electrician to report there, They always had the hot water ready a double shot of 190 in a coffee cup of hot water was called a hot-toddy, it was great, even the Captain,Commander Mayer's personal cook used to call, I knew the skipper was looking for a moral booster. I really had a racket, I was the only crew member that had open gangway, because I ran the movies every night in port.had to be there from 7 to 9 PM, you crew members there with me were the best of the best, I have quite a few pictures of you as a group, Vernon Davis and I helped put together the quansee huts for the weather station at the Air Port on Cornwallis Island- Truman wanted to use to intercept the Russians He believed would attack us by air over the North Pole.The ones of you there with me might remember me as the maker of coffee for all, in a big Army kettle over packing crates, and water from melted snow, Its as plain to me today as if it were yesterday, To my old buddies ,may God bless each and every one of you. To all crew members abord after I left, I know you all are better men today for having been on the Edisto.Hugh Sanders from Mississippi, was with me, he married a girl from Lynn ,Ma. and worked there until he retired, lost contact with all others, Harold J.

SERVED ABOARD THE "STEADY EDDIE" FOR TWO ARTIC CRUISES AND ONE ANTARCTIC CRUISES. WAS ASSIGNED TO THE DECK DIVISION FOR A FEW MONTHS AND THEN WENT TO THE SUPPLY DIVISION AS A DISPURSING CLERK. WORKED WITH BOB RANDALL AND CHIEF JACKSON. SERVING ABOARD THE EDISTO WAS QUITE AN ADVENTURE. BEING A GREEN HORN RIGHT OUT OF BOOT CAMP I DIDN,T KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT. WHEN IT WAS ALL OVER, I WOULDN'T HAVE TRADED IT FOR ANOTHER SHIP. GREAT SHIPMATES AND OFFICERS. I REMEMBER THE INITIATIONS VERY WELL AND HAD A LOT OF FUN DOING THEM. DISAPPOINTED WE DIDN'T GET TO SOUTH AMERICA DUE TO RUDDER PROBLEMS. MADE UP FOR IT WHEN WE HAD 10 DAYS IN OSLO NORWAY ON THE NEXT NORTHERN TRIP. THE WEB SITE IS REALLY SPECIAL AND I CHECK IT OFTEN. THE PEOPLE WHO PUT IT TOGETHER DESERVES A BIG "E". HOPE TO MAKE THE NEXT REUNION, EVEN THOUGH 40 PLUS YEARS CHANGES A PERSON. WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM MY OTHER SHIPMATES.

Just visiting this site. Served as an on the Staten Island '61 to '64 and was searching for info for that ship when I found this. Surprised at how many contacts have been established for people who have served on the Edisto. Wish there was a similar site for the S.I. I know the Edisto was with us on one of the cruises but I don't know which one. I have the DF cruise book somewhere and I'll have to look it up. My thanks to those who have worked on this site.

I arrived on board the Edisto September 14, 1948 and spent the next 3 years, 7 months and 12 days, until I was discharged from the Navy on May 26, 1952. I returned to Dayton, Ohio and worked at General Motors, staying until February 1986. I had returned to Boston in October 1952 and married Mary. We look forward to celebrating our 54th anniversary this October, 2006. Unfortunately we missed the 2004 Reunion of the Edisto but were determined to attend the 2006 Reunion at Chattanooga, Tn. We had a great time. Enjoyed every minute of it. Met up with my friend from the past Bruce Andrews, who was there with his wife Eleanor. Also met four others who served on board during my time and enjoyed our time together at the reunion. Bob Heintz, Roger Soucey, Harry Anderson, and Jim MacGlafin. It was a great trip down memory lane. Looking forward to the next reunion.

A great reunion at the Choo Choo! Rekindling old friendships and making new ones is what it is all about. We had a total of 139 shipmates/spouses/guest in attendance at the 4-day event. The first official act of our new president Virgil Paulk was to appoint me as the Reunion Chair for 2008. I can't say that I'm working on it but soon I will "get aroun tuit."

En-3, assigned to B-2 engine room. Reported on board in Feb. '71 after compleating Diesal Mech. school . Rode with her on the Artic Freeze '72 and the fateful ramming of the Navy vessal on the Artic ice pack . Endured the tow back and was chosen to be on the SouthWind to bring her to Milwaukee as a replacement. The Eddie was a good ship and being on the Southwind reinforced that feeling. I wish things would have worked out a little better for her as she well deserved it.

Hi Shipmates. Eugene Fellinger [crewmember 1960-61] whom I contacted re my recently published history of VX-6 Squadron US Navy's Operation Deep Freeze 1955-99 and he suggest I sign in on your web site to idenfify myself and 'plug my book' which is called 'COURAGE SACRIFICE DEVOTION' the squadron's motto. The book is published by INFINITY up in PA and at this early stage is on sale on their website www.buybooksontheweb.com. Noel Gillespie Christchurch New Zealand Biography: The author is a part time free lance aviation writer in Christchurch, New Zealand and architectural design consultant and has been covering the US Navy’s Antarctic operations since the late 1950’s.His love for aviation and the Antarctic brought about the writing of this book about a select band of aviators on the frozen continent. His zest for life and his second marriage after 44 years to his late wife Shirley, to which he has three sons, at the age of 70 he enjoys life to the full and dabbled in water colour painting and various writing projects. Selected works by this author: Courage, Sacrifice, Devotion Courage, Sacrifice, Devotion by: Noel Gillespie ISBN: 0-7414-2912-8 ©2006 Price: $35.95 Book Size: 8.5 x 11, 519 pages Category/Subject: Biography/Military A truly remarkable story of endurance, bravery, so immersed in the demands placed on them by the US Navy- the Puckered Penguins’, a group of men and women flighting the odds in the name of Antarctic exploration, carrying out their duties on the frozen continent with danger was lurking everywhere. This epic story is an insight and challenging chronicle of their young life’s flying aircraft on the world’s harshest continent- yet their compassion for their mates will leaves readers stunned. Courage, Sacrifice, Devotion by Noel Gillespie As a part time freelance aviation writer based in Christchurch New Zealand, I am privileged to be able to cover the United States Navy Deep Freeze air operations in Antarctica. In early 1999 I wrote an extensive historical history of VX-6 Squadron covering 1955-99, for a British historic aviation journal ‘AIR Enthusiast’. At this point, the idea to write a book of the renowned Squadron’s illustrious history in Antarctica was conceived and encouraged by my late wife Shirley, along with many old OAE’s. A book had to be written of their exploits in Antarctica, and their story had to be told as a chronicle of their achievements on the frozen continent, their sadness, their joys, their lifetime friendships, and the links they cemented with Christchurch. Like early aviators who had only their wits and reflexes to bring their aircraft down safely, their planes were mere collages of wood, cloth and wire, difficult to control and so sensitive to air currents that even a moderate zephyr could knock them to the ground, while their engines were weak and unreliable, not dissimilar to those early VX-6 aviators, risking their lives, but unlike their early aviation pioneers, the Navy were not risking pride, fame and fortunes, their role was risking their lives to open up the frontier of science and Antarctic exploration. While other books and publications have been written on Operation Deep Freeze, the part that the famous Air Development Squadron Six played in those 44 years, and the US Navy’s role in Antarctica, I believe this is the first book written about the very men and women whos exploits could best be described as the last pioneers of aviation exploration. They were the Boy’s Own flying ace heroes, the Biggles of the 20th century, or the Baron von Richthofen’s, or the American’s Eddie Richenbacker of World War I ‘Flying Circus’. These young intrepid aviators of VX-6 were continuing the ‘Heritage of Kitty Hawk’ and their achievements are acknowledge with profound admiration, for their exploits and heroism in the finest traditions of the United States Naval aviation. Of these OAE’s, many of whom I never met, yet I have communicated with them over the past three years would consider them all, without exception, life time friends. I am indeed privileged to have known such a gathering of a bunch of talented and brave aviators who changed Antarctic aviation forever. This is the story of their achievements flying with planes never manufactured to operate in such harsh climates, and recording their enormous contributions made writing this book possible. Their stories are spattered with humour, for humour was part of what life was on the ice. Their wit, using their tongue savagely at times or charmingly or seductively, was all part of life on the ice in their Jamesway huts. Laughter and seriousness, all happening at the same time, was one way of surviving the isolation and absent families. Beneath the banter there was a pride in what their mates had achieved, and in taking great pleasure in recounting these episodes at length over a long cool beer. Some paid the ultimate price to advance the cause of science and Antarctic exploration, others have passed away to walk with the angels and catch up with old mates. Men like Eddie Frankiewicz, whose assistance in the writing of this book was immeasurable, although, I never meet Eddie, who passed away on May 9 2003, he still sent me original copies of valued personal, precious material, press cuttings and photos. ‘Just copy what you want and post it back in your own time’, he said. That was this man’s enormous trust in me. Eddie generosity embodies hundreds of other OAE’s, all of whom I treat as personal friends with a colourful treasure trove of Antarctic aviation knowledge, who without hesitation searched their minds and memories for me, exchanging e-mails on a regular basis. To all these proud American men and women who have served their country in Antarctic, I have dedicated this book This is a story of Courage-Sacrifice–Devotion, which just happens to be the Squadron’s Motto. To them Christchurch, New Zealand was their second home for 44 years, and the camaraderie and overwhelming hospitality they received from the folk of Christchurch was two way, and the day the squadron said farewell to the city in February 1999 after their decommissioning, was indeed a sad day, but memories of their occupation will last in the hearts of New Zealanders for many years. It would be impossible to acknowledge all those who have assisted in the writing of this book, as at times I felt inadequate to undertake such a project. I have taken every possible care to check and recheck all information. This is their story, told by the OAE’s themselves, although contributions have come from many sources, every endeavour has been made, recognizing the fact that some stories related could vary a little or be coloured from the actual truth due to the intervening 50 years, but stories which still illustrate their comradeship in what must have been the most taxing and remote peacetime military operation in history. I am grateful to the United States Navy, the US Naval News and all private collections for permission to publish all the photos herein as well as other material. To acknowledge everyone who contributed would be a volume in itself.

As an EM2(SS)I wasn't aboard Edisto but I deeply respect the hazardous, nasty, praiseless work(sounds like submarine duty) that you guys did and others continue to do. A life-long friend, Bill Gallant, was on board for both an arctic and antarctic gallop around 1960 or 1961. He told me of this website, and I was amazed at the quality and effort that you guys are putting forth. Keep up the good work. Bill Bell U.S.S.Grouper AGSS214 & U.S.S. Razorback SS394

Glad you and your shipmates can get together. I remember Edisto well. I was a Quartermaster aboard the U.S.S. Arneb (AKA-56). Your ship, Glacier and Eastwind sure got us out of some binds.I made Deepfreeze of '62-'63.

Greetings: I was an Ordinary Seaman helmsman,12-4 Watch, aboard the USNS Mizar, T-AGOR 11, on the 1971 or 1972, Voyage 50, Arctic expedition with USCG cutters Edisto and Northwind. Our Mizar was frozen in 6.5 feet of ice for 13 days. One of the cutters threw a screw. I was on the frozen helm when the tow cable parted, cutting throught the Mizar's forecastle skin and part of a frame (aboard the Mizar, it had not been rigged with the safety details as per the Navy ice operations manual) and aboard the cutter, the cable cut one of the helicopter landing pad supports on the cutter's stern. I do not remember which cutter had the Mizar in tow? The Mizar was recently removed from the James River reserve fleet and scrapped Cheasapeak, Va.; R.I.P. Aboard the Mizar,it was said that in WWII,the Edisto was in Soviet service and still had brass Russian instructions in the engine room? I've just retired as an FAA/FCC licensed airline mechanic. Deborah and I welcome hearing from any Edistonians on that Arctic trip: James 'Jim' A. Miller, Jr., 4978 N Hampton Dr., Southport, N.C. 28461; phone 910-457-1888.

I was a radioman second class when I left the Edisto. Came aboard as a striker. I learned radio the hard way. Have some fond memories of the Edisto and remember some bad also, especially the "Big Storm". I emagine there are many of you who can remember how close we came to desaster. If anyone out there remembers me, I would really appreciate an email from you. I promise I will answer it. A lot of my friends from the edisto are now gone, but I am certain there are some. Thanks for the Memories Edisto!

I served TD as an aerial photographer, AF2, on a cruise on the North Atlantic visiting Labrador, Greenland and Iceland. On this cruise, we crossed the Artic Circle on both sides of Greenland for the first time by a vessel in the dead of winter. I saw the skipper on the bridge seasick several times and he had been at sea for 18 years. We lost the helicopter in Argentia due to a mechanical malfunction. I have many pictures of the cruise and the ship.

Would love to hear from someone that remembers Clifford L James Sr. I wish I knew the exact years he was aboard. Thank you for sharing the pictures of the reunion.

Was U.S.civil service, Ordinary Seaman, 12-4 Watch, helmsman aboard Navy Research Lab's USNS Mizar T-AGOR 11, Arctic Voyage 50, 1 October 1972; we reached Lat 79* 44' 36" N, Lng 00* 35'28" W, were ice-bound in 6 to 6 1/2 foot of Polar ice, circa 13 days. We operated with Edtisto and Northwind or Southwind. One lost a screw. August 2005, the Mizar has been sold from the James River Fleet, and is next in line for scrapping, Chesapeak, Va. R.I.P. I was told one of the ice breakers had been lent to the Soviets and still had Russian language brass instruction plates in the engine room. Jim Southport, North Carolina

Made 1 south trip and made it through one of the worst storms ever, trying to rescue a YOG that had fuel for the base on it. Made 1 north trip because the Glasier broke down. Both trips will remain with me forever as "the good times" serving with Tom (Shoe) Shoener, Parker AG1 and Nelson AG1. In the 4 years that I server the USN, I was on 2 carriers and the Edisto. Best times ever was my time on the Edisto.

I was trying to take a look at your guestbook because in a Google Search I noticed the name Lyman Smith associated with your guestbook. I am trying to find a Lyman Smith whose father was in the Navy. The Lyman Smith I'm trying to find was living at Great Lakes (or North Chicago) in 1966. I'm assuming his Dad was either at sea or stationed at the Naval Training Center there, and I was following the lead that his father might have the same name. We're having a reunion of the school Lyman Smith attended (Holy Rosary in North Chicago)and so I am trying to locate him. I am also a former Navy dependent -- my dad was in the CEC and MCB5. If you or any of your members could help me...or if you know of some registry I could search, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks! Marty Baker McGihon

Hello, My name is Bill Gucfa (Gus-fa). I live in Rehoboth, Mass. My cousin Ronald G. Coderre passed away on April 20, 2005 at the young age of 68. Until I read his obit, I always thought he was a submariner on the Nautilus. His obit read he served on the Edisto (FN, 55-57) and your site proved this to be true. Ron lived in Pawtucket, R.I and passed away there. He was French and Mohegan Indian. He was especially proud of his Native heritage. I have always been interested in history and Arctic exploration especially. Now I can study the adventures of the Edisto on your site and others. I feel this is a great gift my cousin has left me in his passing (causing me to be directed to your site). I am sending a photo of Ronnie taken in March ’05. I will sent his Navy photo when I obtain it. Thank you, Bill

I was one of the helicopter plane captains and aircrewmen from HC-4 (out of Lakehurst) on the Sunek (sp?) cruise to the Arctic in the Summer of 1965. I remember many details of the cruise and count it as one of the most interesting experiences of my life. I tell the story of our attempts to round the southern tip of Greenland in that Northeaster storm and the incredible waves. The movie "Perfect Storm" was a vivid reminder of that event.

I was Officer-in-Charge of the JAWS Eureka Weather Station during the Edisto re-supply mission to Eureka in 1952.Was invited aboard to have dinner with the Captain of the ship Capt.Callaghan.Presented him wih Eureka crest for ship display.I remember the whole ship's crew were very courteous to us and helped us in every way that they could.My American Executive Officer Mr. William Pogerman and I went to meet the vessel as it entered Slidre Fiord from Eureka Sound. As the ship entered the fiord the Capt. stopped the ship and Bill Pogerman went aboard.I then raced Edisto in my freighter canoe to the anchorage in front of the weather station to the cheers of the crew.It is hard to realize that was 53 years ago.How time has flown by.

Everyone is healthy thank you all of the Edisto crew who helped my daughter put together the video of memories for our 50th wedding anniversary. God Bless

I was a US Army photographer and was aboard late summer of 1957. I slept up forward with the engine room men. You were escorting freighter, oiltanker and LSD while resuppling the DEW Line. I was assigned to an intelligence office with 7278 Transportation in St. John's , NFLD. We were in the Fox Basin and went around to Cape Clyde on east side of Baffin Island. Big thing was I saw the Glacier as she finished her NW Passage that late summer. Philip Burket

I did not have the privledge of sailing the seas aboard the USS Edisto, but my father did. I read his name on your AWOL list; Edwards, Gerald N; AG2 1958. I do have some connection to the Edisto. My father was a AG2 in the fall of 1958 aboard the Edisto steaming to the Antartic. The ship broke down off the Atlantic coast near Norfolk, and she docked for repairs. Well I guess they didn't have much use for an "AG" while in need of repair. My father was allowed some liberty, and caught a flight back to Quonset Point to see his wife and one year old daughter. Well nine months later I was born, so if the Edisto had not of broke down I would not have been born when I was. My folks were planning a seocnd child some day, but not so soon as when I came along. My dad retired from the navy in January 1977 at NAS Lakehurst, NJ, and is currently on shored duty in Elmore, OH with my mom spoiling their great-grandchildren. Gerald N. Edwards 17709 W.

Greetings to the crew and family of the USS Edisto AGB2. My father is Lt Cmdr William S. Rhymes. My father went to sea on October 06, 1977. I am a prior service Marine and I request permission to come aboard to ask of her crew any information related to my father and his time aboard. In early 2003 I was approached by a gentleman whose father served with my father about information concerning the Edisto in the late 50s. Regretably, I did not pursue this opportunity because of my relocation to Iraq five days later. I now seek to find out what specifics I can about my dad's service because I have three great kids who deserve to know more about their grandfather and the crews with which he served. I ask of those of you who remember my father to please contact me at your convenience and let me know what you can that I may share with his grandchildren and let them know what he was like. To all who served with my father, thank you. To all in uniform, God bless you. I want my kids to be as proud of my dad as this Marine sergeant is proud of him. Semper Fi. Take care and God Bless America!!! Bill Rhymes(rhymes5@urisp.net)

Hello. My name is Jeff Wight. I was John Hartzell's step-son. Mr. Hartzell, who was known to all as "Dutch" retired from the Navy in 1976 and went to work for the National Weather Service, with his last posting at T.F.Green Airport in Rhode Island. . He retired from the N.W.S. @ 1996 and worked for a private weather company that collected weather data for the N.W.S. The weather company is also located at T.F.Green Airport (which is where the N.W.S. was located before they moved to Taunton, Ma.). Dutch was on duty at the airport when he suffered a fatal heart attack on the evening of 11/9/02. He is buried at the R.I. Veterans Cemetery in Exeter, R.I. His heart problems started in 1972 when he suffered his first heart attack while stationed in Guam. He retired from the Navy while working at the Pax River N.A.S. in Maryland. Dutch retired as a Chief and was proud of his military service. He was a weather technician for some 24 years during his Navy career and he spent time on the Edisto. He is survived by his widow and he has a daughter in CT.

SERVED ON YOUR SISTER SHIPS. THE BURTON ISLAND AND STATEN ISLAND (WEST COAST) MY CO ON DF III WAS XO ON THE EDISTO DURING THE EARLY FIFTIES. CMDR BRANTINGHAM. FOUND A TRIBUTE TO HIM READ BY A CONGRESSMAN. THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE OF INTEREST. JACK CLARK USS BURTON ISLAND AND USS STATEN ISLAND TRIBUTE TO COMDR. HENRY J. BRANTINGHAM -- HON. DUNCAN HUNTER (Extension of Remarks - April 09, 1997) [Page: E609] GPO's PDF --- HON. DUNCAN HUNTER in the House of Representatives WEDNESDAY, APRIL 9, 1997 · Mr. HUNTER. Mr. Speaker, today I rise to recognize the outstanding service and dedication of Comdr. Henry J. Brantingham, whose career in the U.S. Navy spanned three decades and which included over eight awards and recognitions. Commander Brantingham recently passed away and I would like to take a moment to commend this individual's exceptional service to our country. · Henry began his career with the U.S. Navy 58 years ago with his graduation from the U.S. Naval Academy with the class of 1939. Following graduation, he served on the cruiser Minneapolis and several destroyers, later volunteering for motor torpedo boat training. He was subsequently ordered to duty in the Philippines at the outbreak of World War II. It was here that Henry accompanied Gen. Douglas MacArthur in his historical trip from Manila to the island of Cebu and onto the United States. · After returning to the United States, Henry was assigned to P.T. boat training duties at Newport, RI, and was subsequently sent to the South Pacific for the duration of the Solomon Islands campaign where he commanded a force of 1,100 personnel. Henry was also a member of the unit sent to rescue John F. Kennedy and his crew when their P.T. boat had been cut in two by a Japanese destroyer. · Following World War II, Henry was ordered to icebreaker duties and served on five expeditions to the Arctic aboard the Edisto. His final sea command was aboard the icebreaker Burton Island, which he took to both the Arctic and the Antarctic. While in the Antarctic, Henry rescued a number of Japanese scientists whose icebreaker had become stranded and led them to open seas enabling their return to Japan. In 1964, Comdr. Henry Brantingham voluntarily retired from the U.S. Navy having earned several decorations that included two Silver Stars, a Legion of Merit with combat `V', a Presidential Unit Commendation, and four campaign ribbons for his actions in the Pacific. · Henry and his wife, Elaine, had two children, William and Nancy. William served honorably in the Vietnam war with the United States Army and was, unfortunately, fatally injured in an automobile accident after coming home. Nancy currently lives in the San Diego area with her husband David and their 6-year-old son Bill. Mrs. Brantingham lives in La Jolla, CA, where she remains active in community affairs, including the La Jolla Unit of Pro America, the La Jolla Republican Women Federation, and in assisting new citizens with their voter registration. · Mr. Speaker, in an era when the U.S. military is often not given sufficient recognition, outstanding leaders such as Commander Brantingham, exemplify the commitment our Armed Forces has to superior performance. ·

This evening I received a call asking if I had served aboard USS Edisto, AGB-2. My answer was yes, albeit only the summer of 1962 as I was assigned to the Edisto for my First Class summer training from the U.S. Naval Academy. I joined the ship in Boston from which we proceeded to the inlet leading to Goose Bay, thence to Sondestrom Greenland, Thule, and back to Boston. I retired in 1991 as a Captain, USN and currently practice law in the Washington D.C. area. I have several distinct memories of that two month period but beyond CDR Davidson I have few names that come immediately to mind. Regards, Frank Hilton

I'm signing this guest book for my father who is also my namesake. I wish he could sign it himself but he passed away about 9 years ago. I'm sure he would have loved to have been at the reunion. As I was growing up he told me many stories of his time in the Navy and on the Edisto. I konow he was proud of that time. I don't know if many of you had contact with my father after his naval career ended but he went on to be a director at Spalding (the sports company) and was actually the guy who invented that package that they put basketballs in now and started their art department there. Again, I wish it was him writing this but I think he would want me to say hello for him and wish you all the best.
