Comments: Does anyone remember my Dad Mack Baer he was from Front Royal Virginia. He was the ships store keeper. sold cigarettes, gum, candy and I'm sure lots of other needed items. He was on the Antietam a long time. Mack helped bring the carrier out of moth balls in Alameda Ca. in 1950. He went to Korea on her and had many good memories of his time in Japan on her. Mack returned to Ca. on CV 36 after the war and helped bring the Antietam back threw the Panama Canal. Mack was allowed to bring his Ford Model A car onto the carrier to bring the car to Norfolk Virginia with them. Dad said everyone laughed their asses off as the $100.00 Model A was loaded onto the ship. Mack helped with the work at the Philadelphia ship yards with the change to a angled flight deck. I think Mack left the mighty carrier some time in 1953. I think at that time Mack had been on the Antietam longer than anyone. Mack was very proud of his time serving on the USS Antietam CV36. Mack left this world on Sunday May 24 2011. Buried with military honors.

Comments: In none of the entries on the internet re USS Antietam do I
find any mention of the July 1958 rapid deployment, ferrying
Marines and Marine aircraft to sea in response to an outbreak
of hostilities in Lebanon. 6th Marines were on the ground
engaged in firefights, and America's interests seemed
threatened. In July (about the 6th or 7th, I think), Marines
in aviation units on the east coast (MCAS Cherry Point, NC;
NAAS Edenton, NC; MCAS New River, NC) were alerted and moved to
Pier 12, Norfolk, Va., dockyards and boarded the Antietam.
Three days were spent loading aircraft by crane, and locading
bombs, beans and bullets. I was in a unit from Edenton, NC,
MATCU-61, one of the units deployed. The Antietam had been
serving as a training carrier for NavCad students, operating
out of Mayport, FL, and was handy for use. After we went to
sea, and during the Atlantic crossing en route to the Med and
Lebanon, the political climate changed in Lebanon, a ceasefire
went into effect, and the Antietam was ordered to stand down.
The ship re-deployed to the Caribbean, where we milled about
for several weeks, awaiting possible outbreak of violence
again, but in the end, we returned to the Norfolk and
disembarked. The ship did not engage in combat, but had it
done so, the crew/ship would have been at great risk, as the
crew was greatly undermanned (reflecting its training mission);
critical communications, radar and other life-sustaining
systems did not function, and the lovely old Antietam was
generally a bit long in the tooth. A brass plaque on the
hangar deck gave me my first knowledge of the Civil War Battle
of Antietam.

Comments: I am seeking anyone with information or knowledge of Calvin Lester Robinson ? He sometimes went by the name of Tex or Robbie. This was my father, and I know very little about him. I had been told: He was a pilot who flew off of Air Craft Carriers, during the Korean war. Would that mean he was in the Air Force or the Navy? Could it have been either? He was a Texan. He played many musical instruments, especially Guitar, Fiddle, piano, and accordion. He loved to entertain people. (He was a good Yodeler- in that Texas style) He was tall (6'2 to 6'4) and had a good sense of humor, practical joker, And of course he loved to chase the women. I know he did not die in Korea- I would not be here. I was born in 59. He did maintain a Pilots License after he returned home, he used to take us up in a Cessna on occasion. I don't have much more info, than that. I don't know if he is alive or dead! The lack of knowledge has pretty much possessed me over the years since he disappeared. Thank you, for anything you can tell me, no matter how big or slight. I cant describe this feeling of knowing nothing of my Dad.

He was born in 1927 and was actually drafted into the Army, but ran as fast as he could to the Navy Enlistment office. So, he was probably only 17 or so when he was drafted? I never did get the actual dates and he is not in good health, so I was trying to find information on his unit and if there are any shipmates. I know he went to the South Pacific where there was a Typhoon they all had to endure - he went to Japan and brought back a beautiful silk painting of Tigers. I believe he was in Hawaii at some point - Australia was his favorite.

Editor note: Ben see the following, get in touch:

Hi, I can help this person if I had an updated email address. I knew Charles Lovelace and was with him on the Antietam off Korea in 1951-72.

I want to Thank The Korean War project for helping me learn more and amazingly find someone who knew my Grandfather and in addition had a sharp camera in hand to snap a few ship photos and actually catching my grandfather 50yrs later presenting itself to me the information I have learned is pricless, Thanks you once again for doing what you do.
Sincerly,
Benjamin Smagacz

Comments: My Father's name is Wayne Giles. He was aboard the USS Antietam in 1953-54. As an Aviation Electrician. I see by his records he was approved as a "Plane Captain." He was on the during the trial run of the first canted flite deck. Anyone who remembers Wayne Giles can contact me at this e-mail address. I have an origanl card given him by the USS Antietam. saying he was particapated on the eveluation of the "first canted flite deck in naval history." Wayne was from Lodi NJ at the time of his service. He grew up in West Frankfort Illinois.
