I served aboard B div FA in 1965-66 as a kiddie cruiser. Had a great time visiting the med and the time spend at sea enabled me to get my GED and working on the boilers started me on a very long and prosperous career as a master plumber. Zinter BT1 and BT Chief Southerland were great mentors. A lot of fun for a teenager.

EN3, was in the "A Division" 1961-1963. I caught up to the Nitro in Catania, Sicily and went aboard the Nitro as a FM, early October 1961 to late January 1963 finished the Med Cruise, Germany and England plus Cuban Missile Crisis Blockade, a couple trips to the Carb. Then Transferred to USS Lookout AGR-2 as I was to be discharged in June, the Nitro was heading back to the Med in February and would not return until September. It was extend for the cruise or transfer, being a married man decided tranfer was the best option. Any members of "A Division" during that time frame drop me a e-mail, might have some stories we could share. Some names I remember from "A Division" Lieb, TD Smith, Clark, Brown, Chief Guard, "M Division" Hanner, Beaty. Has there ever been a ships reunion? I just attended my brothers Ship Reunion and it was GREAT.

MR-3 May 1960 to September 1962 - Fresh out of MR school in San Diego I chased the Nitro 2 months in the Med aboard USS Regal. Ran machine shop for most of the time on board. Many trips to Gitmo, several trips to Med left good memories. This young onery sailor loved beach beer partys in Sardinia, swim calls in the middle of the MED and all that other stuff Sailors will do !! For any of my old pals who might read this at 70 I have slowed down a little ??

My son, MIDN Gregory “Beau” Bartlett, reported to USNA for Plebe Summer on Monday. When we returned, my mother gave me my dad’s (Walter D. Gaines ) plank ownership paperwork for the U.S.S. Nitro. I do not see his rank/division on it, and he is now deceased (ironically, he died on Memorial Day four years ago), but I wanted to try to register him anyway. He retired in 1976 (I believe), but he lost contact with most of his Navy friends. I will have the paperwork framed (it is beautiful) and hang it in my son’s room. Thanks.

Assigned to USS Nitro AE-23 (call sign MGMN) late summer 1966 RM3 (from NCS Nea Makri Greece)- in Baltimore - Bethlehem Steel Shipyards. There were about 20 to 30 us (all ratings) assigned at that time, before she was re-commissioned. Rest of the crew assigned late spring 1967. Discharged RM2 - July 1969 prior to deployment from Davisville R.I. (Quonset Point). Good Crew – lots hard work – but lots of fun!

I went to the Nitro straight out of Boot Camp, Oct 1959. I made it's first Med cruise in 1960. I was a rookie seaman and initially, was on the deck crew. I eventually went to work in the, either, Deck Office or Gunnery Office. I left the ship in May 1960 to attend Yeoman "A" school. I was reassigned after school the the USS San Marcos (LSD-25). I rode it to the invasion of the Bay of Pigs, Cuba. I was tranferred to the U.S. Naval Intelligence School in 1962 and left the Navy in Sep 1963. I was a YN2.
NEWS FLASH: In Sept 2010, I was invited to attend the Christening and Launching of the USNS Washington Chambers (T-AKE-11). The Chambers is a Dry Cargo/Ammunition Ship. It is owned by the U.S. Navy, but will be manned by the Merchant Marine. It is the eleventh new version of the Ammunition Ship. Although it is very modern, you can see the Nitro in it's structure.

SM2, Signalman, Ops Division, Came aboard in 1960 SM3 and was discharged from Nitro in 1962 SM2. I have been a member of the association for some time and just realized that I'd never made an entry into the Crew Book. Fantastic site. I've talked to a lot of Navy guy's over the years and they can't believe this association exists. "Calm Sea's and Following Winds" to all you guy's, especially the QM's, RM's, SM's, RD's etc.... The USS Nitro AE-23 almost convinced me make a career in the Navy. After 48 years I still love that ship and it's crew...

I was onboard from late 69 to Sept 71. Left as an ETN3. What a blast reading these entries and seeing names that bring back a flood of memories. Anyone remember the ship's newspaper, the Poseidon, or the "radio station" from the ET shack with our home-grown DJs, transferring the fire truck, the bomb threat at Davisville, Hymas diving off the flying bridge, "sneaking up" on a Russian ship in the Med, putting the dent in the JP Kennedy or fighting the Klingons in the neutral zone? (oops, wrong ship) Take care & God bless.

PN3 X-Division from 1967-1969. I can still see the Band playing on the pier in Gitmo. The Captain yelling at the Pilot, "we're going to fast", then "all back full", "let go anchor 1.let go anchor 2". Neither anchor dropped! Then "all back emergency". The ship started bouncing radically. We were close enough to see the bands eye's getting bigger. Then they turned and started running. We smashed into the pier, came to a stop, and then the anchor let go right through the pier. Later, it was pretty funny! I'm not sure about the anchor going through the pier (maybe I dreamed it)

I picked up the ship TAD on the AE Mazarma in Rota Spain, and was discharged when Nitro was in the shipyard during May 1972. I made 2 Med. trips, and countless war games in Gitmo during that time. I mostly hung with Ship Service and the Cooks.... has anyone heard from Billie Bear, or George Argy????

MM2, "M" Division Apr. 1967 - June, 1969. Was on the shakedown cruise to GITMO when we ran aground and then took out the pier. Capt. Snyder must have really enjoyed that ride. The '68 Med Cruise was a great time. I even toured Rome for a few days and, of course, who could forget swimming in the Med. for beer with the sharpshooters on deck looking for sharks. It certainly made one think!! It was a great way to do a war.

RD3 1962 to 1964. Remember the guys, especially in Radar, such as Frankie Newman, Gary X, and a whole bunch of rebels on the ship, who were still fighting the civil war. Went back to Europe and revisited some of the ports we went to, including San Remo, Cannes and, of course, Gulf Juan. Home of the Chez Marcel, and still standing in the same place (now a legit restaurant). Like everywhere else, the places have changed, but the memories linger. Nice to see this web exists.

They assigned me to the engineering log room until they could transfer me to the Seabee's, that happened in Rhodes Greece much to my dismay.

EM2C - I was a part of the original pre commissioning crew that went aboard when she went into commission. I am an original plank owner. She went into service in 1959. Stores were loaded and we went to GITMO for the shake down cruise. I was a 2nd class electrician when I was seperated in GITMO. We waited for a M.A.T.S flight back to Norfolk and mustered out. I was 4 days shy of spending 4 years in the good old U.S.N. While on the Nitro, I was responsable for keeping the cargo elevators running at all times. I also showed classified movies in the ward room when we had a lot of ordinance aboard. I had a top secret and a confidential clearence. My tour of duty consisted of service on two ships. U.S.S.SEVERN, AO61 & the U.S.S. NITRO AE 23. My enlistment was from JULY 57 TO JULY 61. After my discharge, I went to school and studied INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING. I worked 40 years in the trade and now I am retired.

I am a Plank Owner and have the certificate. I went on the Nitro as an ET striker in May 1959 and left in August 1961 as an ET-2. I did the first Med Cruise and was on the first softball team. We had a very good team (96-2) so after beating the Marines and having their base commander buy all the beer for us and the Marines, Captain Hall had 16 of us flown back Gitmo to Norfolk to play in the Atlantic Fleet Softball Tournament. We came in 3rd, but should have done better if not for the partying. I played center field. I really enjoyed my time on the Nitro and have very fond memories of friends and places. I would enjoy hearing from anyone.

I was a skipper on the 26' motorwhale boat while in Gitmo in 1967 and picked up a cuban that had jumped off a fishing boat and brought him back to the ship. I don't know what ever happended to him. I guess he was shipped off to Miami. Also we ran aground and it took 5 tugs to get us off the rocks. We also ran through a concrete pier. Once while we were replenshing the USS Bang a sub surfaced bet. us and we had an emergency breakaway while outside Cuba.A drank was named after the nitro: Nitrol on the rocks with a pier chaser.

EN3 in "A" Division 64-65. Met ship in the MED. Was ENFN when I came on board. Made EN3 before transferring to an Ice Breaker 9-65. Enjoyed New Years Eve (1964) on the French Riviera. Remember coming across the North Atlantic in January, was almost the worst ride except for the time when we went through a hurricane to get back to homeport sooner. Great to see all the mail on this site. Sure makes a person remember a lot of things, good and bad.

BT3 A Division. Served on board Oct 1967 thru 1971 under Capt.'s Snyder, Smith and Howe. Remember playing guitars on the flight deck with Leroy Patterson, wearing long hair wigs. Did several Med cruises and still remember the smell of Naples harbor. Was there for the beaching at Gitmo and the pier cutting. It was great sport. Was there for the hippies in New York harbor, the swimming for beer in the med, being rammed by the JP Kennedy, and much more. If any of the guys are out there like, Tom Kren, Leroy Patterson, Carter Kelley, Gary Bates, Tom Moxley and Chief Buttery(Mr. Tatoo) would love to hear from you.

It brought back alot of memories (some good and some bad) of my duty aboard the Nitro. I served in the 1967 period and was a BT3, made BT2 (Oil King) by default. I chuckled when I had read other's account of the beaching at Gitmo, cutting the pier in half at Gitmo and the Russian ships. I have never forgotten the beer on the barge over the side, as long as yuo could swim, you could drink. It was quite an experience being in the boiler room, as close to hell as I hope I ever get. Again good to read accounts from others who served.

I just stumbled on the Nitro website today!! I was knocked out. I didn't know there was an association devoted to ex Nitro shipmates. Was on board from January 69 to January 70 having just finished up a tour in DaNang. I picked up the Nitro at Davisville just after she was coming back from a Med cruise. I was an SK 2 and I'm not sure you were on board when I was. I would really appreciate a reply to let me know when you left and if you know any other guys that we served with. I look forward to hearing from you.

I am a Plank Owner and designed the ship's plaque. Went through Nitro Pre-Commissioning Schools at Norfolk and commissioned the Good Ship USS NITRO on 1 May 1959. Was assigned to 1st Division. While in the 1st Division the ship ran a contest for design of the ship's emblem. I won 1st and 3rd place in that contest. I still have the original drawings. After the shake down cruise to Gitmo and a Port visit to Ciudad Trujillo (Now Santo Domingo) I got my GED on the Nitro with the encouragement of Lt. Charles L. Smith. I really wanted to be a Corpsman Striker but BOSN Wildermuth wanted me to stay in 1st division because I was trained to run the Electric Hydraulic Cargo handling transfer stations and was just a dam good Seaman. Finally got to go to Sick Bay and worked for HMC Dunn and HM2 Gonnoud. Left the ship around Aug 1960 via of a mail Helo on the fo'c's'le that flew me to a Carrier then to Naples Italy, then 2 days later to Morocco, 4 days later on to Anacosta NAS and finally to Hospital Corp School @ Glakes. Retired from Navy in Sept 1978 as a Chief Hospital Corpsman. I still have Commissioning Programs, Plank Owner Card, Large Colored Ship's picture with North Alantic Track Chart on left side and other pictures.

I remember boarding @ Yorktown, Va., cruising up the coast to Earle, on up to Davis, R.I., then Over (and thru) The Waves for a Med Cruise. Anybody remember a character named 'Tiger', who made the unforgiveable mistake of emptying the candy machine (right after it was filled), then tried to double the price? Bad career move.

I reported aboard NITRO at ammunition anchorage Cannes, France in Nov of 1961 after chasing the ship all over the Med for a month. Arrived as PCSA straight from "A" school and left as PC3. I was ships Postal Clerk. PCS'd to NS Rota, Spain in Dec 1963, made PC2 and got out in 1966 I have many fond memories and more than one nightmare from the Old Girl. Such as The Cuban Blockade, the killer storm at anchorage at Genoa, Italy, the "FERRY" incident at Bremerhaven, Germany and the day LTjg Foley and I went off to the French Foreign Legion at Oran, Algeria. I would dearly love to board her one more time and perhaps make my peace with her. Just joined the Assn and am on Hot Standby to hear from any shipmates. May all your Watches be uneventful.

After completion of the med cruise in 1962(spring) I went to RM Class A school in Norfolk and then to the USS Salinan ATF 161 out of Key WEst Fla. I was honorably discharged in Jan 1965 RM3. By the way; I have what I believe is the original commisioning pennet from the USS Nitro. We took it down for some reason right after I went aboard. The old first class bosan told me it was the original. He had been on the ship since it was commisioned.

Great memories. 3 Med cruises, who knows how many to the Carib, and 1 to the South Pacific via the Panama Canal. Some great ports and liberty. I have 3 or 4 cruise books and loads of pictures from cruises. Quite a few stories including Capt. Snyder's beer swim call in the Med, the 'Snoopy' detail, a not-so-wise decision to try and pull into Da Nang harbor, and the collision with the Oriskany off the coast of Viet Nam. Great memories.
