Comments: IN 1953, 7TH. FLEET COMMANDER, VICE ADMIRAL J.J.(JOCKO) CLARK OBTAINED PERMISSION FROM COMMANDER IN
CHIEF UNITED NATIONS COMMAND, GENERAL MARK W. CLARK,
TO ARM HIS 7TH. FLEET FAST CARRIERS WITH NUCLEAR BOMBS. SOON ON THE USS LAKE CHAMPLAIN CVA-39, THERE
WERE REFIGERATION MEN RUNNING REFIGERATION LINES IN
STOREROOMS BELOW DECKS. THEN SPECIAL EQUIPMENT and LIFTS
WERE INSTALLED IN THESE STOREROOMS. THESE REFIGERATION-MEN CAME FROM JAPAN. THEIR BERTHING
COMPARTMENT WAS WAY DOWN IN THE BOTTOM OF THE "CHAMP".
THEY WERE FED AT SPECIAL HOURS, WORKED FOUR HOUR WATCHES. THESE MEN WERE KEPT AWAY FROM THE CREW, YOU
COULD TELL THEM BY THE RADIATION BADGES THEY WORE.
WHEN THESE MEN GOT EVERYTHING READY FOR THE NUCLEAR
BOMBS, THE LAKE CHAMPLAIN RACED TO SASEBO,JAPAN. THE
A-BOMBS WERE BROUGHT OUT ON THE DOCK ON RUBBER TIRED
WAGONS,WITH HUGE SUSPENSIONS. THE DOCK WAS LINED WITH
US MARINE GUARDS. ONCE LOADED ABOARD, THE "CHAMP"
RACED BACK TO THE LINE. THE BOMBS WERE STORED IN THE
REFIGERATED STOREROOMS IN SECTIONS, AND IF NEEDED, TO
BE ASSEMBLED IN A STOREROOM NEAR AN ELEVATOR. THE
USS LAKE CHAMPLAIN CVA-39 HAD THE SCB-27 MODERNIZATION, WHICH AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE FLIGHT
DECK,THE FLIGHT DECK ELEVATORS, CATAPULTS, AND
ARRESTING GEAR WERE MADE TO SUPPORT AIRCRAFT WEIGHING
UP TO 52,000 POUNDS, MAINELY THE AJ SAVAGE BOMBER.
THE AJ AIRCRAFT(THE FIRST NAVAL COMBAT AIRCRAFT
DESIGNED TO CARRY AN ATOMIC BOMB)HAD WORKED WITH THE
CHAMP BEFORE OFF OF THE ATLANTIC COAST, WITH SAND
BOMBS FOR THE PROPER WEIGHT, AFTER THE SHIP'S SHAKE-
DOWN PERIOD. TO DELIVER THE NUCLEAR BOMBS THE SHIP
COULD USE AJ AIRCRAFT FROM VC-6, ATSUGI,JAPAN, AND
WITH NEW SPECIAL ORDNANCE EQUIPTMENT, ATOMIC BOMB
RELEASES-ETC., FOR VA-45 SKYRAIDERS, THE AD'S COULD
BE USED. WHEN THE 7TH.FLEET WAS READY TO DELIVER THE
NUCLEAR BOMBS, THE WORD WAS LEAKED OUT TO THE COMMUNIST ENEMY. LATER, VICE ADMIRAL C.TURNER JOY,THE
U.N.DELEGATE AT PANMUNJON, STATED THAT THE COMMUNIST
GOT BUSY, AND SPEEDED UP THE CEASE-FIRE TALKS, THAT
LEAD TO THE ARMISTICE SIGNING, WHEN THEY LEARNED OUR
FLEET HAD THE A-BOMB, WHICH SAVED SCORES OF U.N.LIVES.
AFTER THE CEASE-FIRE THE CHAMP CARRIED THE NUCLEAR
BOMBS,(JUST IN CASE). SHE OFF-LOADED THE BOMBS IN OCT.
1953 AT SASEBO,JAPAN.
