Return to the USS Cole

Today we remember the crewmembers of USS Cole (DDG 67) who made the ultimate sacrifice #OTD in 2000. Seventeen Sailors died, 39 were wounded, and the U.S. Navy ship was grievously damaged as a result of a determined surprise enemy attack in Yemen.

This documentary focuses on that deadly attack on the USS Cole, and includes interviews with former crewmembers and family members who recall the attack. (U.S. Navy video by DMA - Navy Production)

In honor of #HispanicHeritage month, today we recognize the incredible, trailblazing career of Chief Warrant Officer 3 Roseanna Oliveros.

Her accomplishments include becoming the first female Navy diver selected as a chief warrant officer. In 2010, she was elected into the Women Divers Hall of Fame. Bravo Zulu, Shipmate!
https://www.facebook.com/seabeemuseum/posts/10160080542035260

Today the museum had a special visitor!

Chief Warrant Officer 3 Roseanne Oliveros has built an incredible career as an exemplary Seabee diver and trailblazer. Oliveros is the first female Hispanic Seabee Diver. In 2000, she became the third female to graduate Second Class Dive School, and completed First Class Dive School in 2004 as an Honor Grad. In May 2009, Oliveros became the first and only enlisted woman in the U.S. Navy to become Officer in Charge of a diving detachment, Construction Diving Detachment Bravo. She also volunteered twice to deploy to Iraq, serving six-month tours in 2003 and 2007.

In 2010, Oliveros became the first female Navy diver selected for chief warrant officer. That same year, she was elected into the Woman Divers Hall of Fame.

It was an honor to have Oliveros visit the museum today and celebrate Seabee history and heritage.

#OTD Oct. 3, 1989 – 31 years ago, the United States and France signed an agreement recognizing CSS Alabama as an important heritage resource for both nations and established a joint French-American Scientific Committee to oversee archaeological investigation of the wreck. Ratification of the agreement established a precedent for international cooperation as it applies to archaeological research, as well as to the protection of unique historic shipwrecks. USS Kearsarge sank CSS Alabama during a Civil War battle off the coast of Cherbourg, France, on June 19, 1864. French navy mine hunter Circe discovered a wreck, 125 years later, off Cherbourg, and French navy Cmdr. Max Guerout later confirmed the wreck was Alabama. Through 1995, yearly archaeological investigations at the Alabama wreck site were conducted under the direction of Guerout.

#OTD Oct. 2, 1920 – 100 years ago, Lt. Cmdr. William M. Corry Jr., while on a flight from Long Island, NY, with another pilot, crashed near Hartford, CT. Though thrown clear of the wreckage, the injured Corry ran back to pull the other officer free of the flaming aircraft. Badly burned during the rescue, Corry died five days later. He posthumously received the Medal of Honor for heroism. Corry served in France during World War I, where he commanded naval air stations at La Croisic and Brest. Airfields at Pensacola, FL, and three destroyers have been named in his honor.

This man did Aerial Recon for the USS Nautilus, our 1st nuclear sub, to find out what was under the North Pole. He was the Squadron Leader for the pilot who took out the 1st U-boat. He was in 2 plane crashes, he served on the Alameda, Boxer, Hancock, and Antitum to name a few. He fought in both theaters and the Korean war. He is the youngest CPO in US Naval history. He killed the largest Kodiak brown bear on record. Meet my grandfather. I walked in the shadow of a legend. Japan surrendered yesterday in 1945. Never forget them, the Greatest Generation, they graced our planet. Smith out.
Good Day, My name is Steve Norris and I am ex-USAF (1973-77). During my professional career (now retired), I worked extensively on US Navy computer Systems (communications, fire control, intelligence). I research, restore and collect ALSE (Aircrew Life Support Equipment) and need some information on Navy gear (helmets and oxygen masks). In the past, I have obtained NAVAIR publications pertaining to flight helmets and oxygen masks ,which are my primary area of interest. However, I have been unable to obtain anything before about 1980. I am attempting to locate the Navy publications pertaining to flight helmets and oxygen Masks from 1945 through 1980. It is my understanding (Did a stint with DLA in 2012-2014) that the US Navy does retain these documents for historical purposes. Anyone have any ideas on where these things can be found and how I might access them? Any help is greatly appreciated!
I belong to the Historical Society in my town of Strasburg, PA, and I am trying to learn more about a flag that we have in our collection. It is marked "U.S. Naval Ensign No. 7 Navy Yard New York July 1903 C9151." It has 13 stars. It was donated by the family of John R. Martin, who served as paymaster and was on the USS Boston during the Battle of Manila Bay. Our town hosted a major reception for him upon his return in July 1899. He displayed various mementos, apparently including the flag flown on the Boston during the battle. Unfortunately, we don't know what became of that flag. We would like to learn more about this flag. We would be interested to know about its intended use, why it has 13 stars, or other distinctive or lesser-known features. How would a serviceman obtain such a flag? We would also be interested to know if there are any records of John R. Martin's Naval service. Any info or leads that anybody could provide would be very much appreciated. I've included some photos and a newspaper article about the reception for John Martin. Thanks for the help!

When & why did the USN start appending "commander" to the names of all of its organizations such as fleets and task forces? For example, in WWII we had Third Fleet and TF34 - why are they now officially "Commander, Third Fleet" and "CTF34"? Is this a peacetime/wartime distinction that would be dropped in wartime? Thanks
