Sgt. Andrew Miller AK-242

Sgt. Andrew Miller
(AK-242: dp. 15,199 (f.), 1. 455~3"; b. 62'; dr. 28'6"; s. 16 k., cpl. 52; a. 4 40mm, cl. Boulder Victory;T. VC2-S-AP2)

Sgt. Andrew Miller was laid down under a Maritime Commission contract on 22 February 1945 as Radcliffe Victory (MCV hull 743) by the Permanente Metals Corp., Richmond, Calif.; launched on 4 April 1945; sponsored by Mrs. Charles H. Owens; and delivered to the Maritime Commission's War Shipping Administration (WSA) on 28 April 1945 for operation by the American-West African Line Inc.

After the end of World War II, Radcliffe Victory was returned to WSA and was further transferred to the War Department for operation by the Army Transportation Corps on 26 July 1946. Renamed Sgt. Andrew Miller on 31 October 1947, the cargo ship remained with the Army Transportation Corps until 1 March 1950, when she was transferred to the Navy for operation by the newly established Military Sea Transportation Service (MSTS), becoming USNS Sgt. Andrew Miller ( T-AK-242) .

Homeported at San Francisco, Sgt. Andrew Miller made a round-trip run to Hawaii and back in April; and, in May, she sailed for Yokosuka, Japan. From there, she continued on to Naha, Okinawa, whence she returned to the west coast.

Arriving after the outbreak of war in Korea, she loaded cargo for units being shipped to Japan and Korea; and, on 18 July, she sailed west. On 3 August, she stopped at Sasebo; and, on the 4th, she arrived off Pusan to commence offloading. Two weeks later, she started back across the Pacific to Hawaii, where she took on more cargo; and, on 15 September, she again sailed west. During November, she delivered cargo at Inchon and Chinnampo, then put into Yokohama. In early December, she got underway for Wonsan but was diverted back to Yokohama, where she joined TG 90.2, the Hungnam evacuation force. On 13 December, she sailed for that North Korean port; where, from the 18th to the 20th, she took on men and equipment as units fought back to the harbor after the entry of Communist Chinese forces into the conflict.

The ship offloaded at Pusan, then returned to Sasebo, whence she made another run to Korea before sailing for Pearl Harbor and San Francisco. Arriving at the latter port in early February 1951, she made runs to bases in the Central Pacific and in the Aleutians into the summer; and, in August, she resumed runs to Japan and Korea. During April and May of 1952, she again carried cargo to islands in the Central Pacific; then, in June, returned to logistics support of United Nations forces in Korea. In September, her operations in the Far East were extended to include Okinawa; and, early in 1953, her calls at Central Pacific ports were male enroute to the Far East. During the spring of that year, she resumed non-stop runs to Japan and Korea.

After the truce agreement in July 1953, Sgt. Andrew Miller continued runs to Japan and Korea and to the islands of the central and northern Pacific. In the summer of 1954, she was called on to assist in Operation "Passage to Freedom" which moved Vietnamese from Haiphong to Saigon following the division of the former French colony. Following one run, she resumed her transpacific operations and expanded her range to include ports in Taiwan; in Thailand, and in the Philippines. During the late 1950's and into the 1960's, she occasionally interrupted her Pacific operations for brief periods of service on transatlantic runs, but, into the fall of 1974, she remains in the Pacific in the Military Sealift-Command fleet.

the Dubuque's captain, provided a short-term answer when he authorized the AESF commander to use the shipboard complement of weapons. For a permanent solution to this problem. Major Quinlan sent a message to General Carey requesting additional weapons for his deploying detachments. At the same time, he sought permission to break open the Dubuque's supply of ammunition.

On 22 April, the AESF commander deployed three detachments to MSC ships: Sierra Detachment to the USNS Sergeant Andrew Miller, Victor on the SS Pioneer Contender, and Papa on board the SS Green Port. The next day, the reorganization and formation of detachments Kilo, Mike, Romeo, and Quebec became official, and the following day, Captain Cyril V. Moyhcr took India Detachment on board the SS Pioneer Commander. At the same time, Captain Robert D. Amos took the Marines of Tango to the SS Green Forest.10

Former infantry staff sergeant, medically retired

“Throughout my military career, I encountered NCOs who would hide in the schoolhouse and never serve as a platoon sergeant or had little time as a squad leader. When they returned to the [line unit], the level of incompetence as a platoon sergeant showed in leadership ability and tactical knowledge. I believe allowing an NCO to grow with leadership positions, military and civilian education will help make a better, well-rounded NCO.”

Story by Staff Sgt. Andrew Miller

Regimental Combat Team-5

CAMP DWYER, Helmand province, Afghanistan – More than 70 sailors, Marines and civilians turned out to show their support and appreciation as the sailors here honored 236 years of pride and tradition during the U.S. Navy Birthday celebration, Oct. 14.

Although Camp Dwyer is more than 600 miles from the nearest ocean, the Navy continues to prove its worth on land and in the air. Valuable services provided by the Navy for coalition forces in Helmand include medical and engineering assets, close air support, and a chaplain corps.

The ceremony began with the playing of the National Anthem, followed by the invocation given by Cmdr. Mark Winward, Regimental Combat Team 5 chaplain. The attendees then viewed a video honoring those sailors who lost their lives during Operation Enduring Freedom, and reflected on their sacrifice during a moment of silence.

The moment of silence was followed by the traditional Prisoner of War/Missing in Action observance. It included a small table set for one, symbolizing one prisoner alone against his oppressor.

The white table cloth symbolized the purity of their motives when answering their country’s call to arms. The single rose in a vase with a yellow ribbon tied around its stem is a reminder of the life of each missing service member and their loved ones who keep the faith awaiting their safe return. A slice of lemon on the plate is a reminder of their bitter fate. A pinch of salt poured on the plate is symbolic of the tears their families shed as they wait. The bible placed on the table represents the strength gained through faith to sustain those who are lost. A glass was inverted to display their inability to share in the toast. The chair at the table was empty because they were not in attendance. The lit candle was reminiscent of the light of hope which lives in everyone’s hearts to illuminate their way home.

The POW/MIA observance concluded as Taps was played for the missing service members.

All sailors in attendance recited the Sailor’s Creed in unison: “I am a United States sailor. I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America and I will obey the orders of those appointed over me. I represent the fighting spirit of the Navy and those who have gone before me to defend freedom and democracy around the world. I proudly serve my country’s Navy combat team with Honor, Courage and Commitment. I am committed to excellence and the fair treatment of all.”

The guest of honor for the event was Sgt. Maj. Ernest Hoopii, Regimental Combat Team 5 sergeant major.

“I am a fan of the Navy. I have seen Marines extremely hurt, and when they needed help it wasn’t going to be mom that was coming,” said Hoopii, a native of Maui, Hawaii. “It was going to be a Navy corpsman. I have seen them do some amazing things on the battlefield.”

After the message from Hoopii, it was time for the cake cutting ceremony. The oldest sailor in attendance was Senior Chief Petty Officer Renato Tolosa, who was born May 27, 1957 and enlisted in the Navy in March 1986. The youngest sailor was Seaman Apprentice Connor O’Keefe, who was born Dec. 23, 1989 and enlisted in the Navy in April 2010.

The first piece of cake was given to the guest of honor, the second to Tolosa, and O’Keefe received the third piece. The passing of the cake from the oldest to the youngest sailor symbolizes the passing of history and tradition from one generation to another.

“This was my first birthday celebration. I definitely felt a sense of pride,” said O’Keefe, a native of Portland, Ore. “I haven’t had a chance to do much yet, but after seeing all the senior sailors around me, I hope I am able to realize a lot more about what we do as a service and do some of the things they have done.”

According to the Naval History and Heritage Command:
The Navy traces its origins to the Continental Navy, which the Continental Congress established on Oct. 13, 1775, by authorizing the procurement, fitting out, manning, and dispatch of two armed vessels to cruise in search of munitions ships supplying the British Army in America. The legislation also established a Naval Committee to supervise the work. All together, the Continental Navy numbered some fifty ships over the course of the war, with approximately twenty warships active at its maximum strength.

After the American War for Independence, Congress sold the surviving ships of the Continental Navy and released the seamen and officers. The Constitution of the United States, ratified in 1789, empowered Congress “to provide and maintain a navy.” Acting on this authority, Congress ordered the construction and manning of six frigates in 1794, and the War Department administered naval affairs from that year until Congress established the Department of the Navy on April 30, 1798. In 1972 Chief of Naval Operations, Adm. Elmo R. Zumwalt authorized recognition of Oct. 13 as the Navy’s birthday.

Editors Note: RCT-5 is assigned to 2nd Marine Division (Forward) which heads Task Force Leatherneck. The task force serves as the ground combat element of Regional Command (Southwest) and works in partnership with the Afghan National Security Forces and the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan to conduct counterinsurgency operations. The unit is dedicated to securing the Afghan people, defeating insurgent forces and enabling ANSF assumption of security responsibilities within its area of operations in order to support the expansion of stability, development and legitimate governance.
