(ARS-7 dp 1,897; 1, 213'6 "; b. 39 '; dr. 14'1"; s. 14,8 k .;

Grapple (ARS-7) is van stapel gestuur deur Basalt Rock Co. Napa, Kalifornië, 31 Desember 1942, geborg deur mev. Thomas D. Rose; en in opdrag van 16 Desember 1943 te Vallejo, Calif., Lt. Robert Fisher in bevel.

Een van die eerste skepe wat ontwerp is om as 'n geveg te werk
Grapple het afgeskud aan die kus van Kalifornië tot op 15 Februarie 1944 toe sy met Pearl YW-9 op sleep sleep na Pearl Harbor. Met drie bakkies op sleeptou vertrek sy vanaf 21 Maart 1944 via Majuro en Tarawa na Espiritu Santo, New Hebrides, Florida Island en Guadalcanal. Daar het Grapple verskillende siftingsoefeninge uitgevoer en gereed gemaak vir haar aandeel in die komende inval in Guam, nog 'n stap in Amerika se oorwinning na die oorwinning oor die Stille Oseaan. Op 15 Junie het sy vir die eerste keer onder vyandelike aanval gekom toe drie Japannese duikbomwerpers in 'n verrassingsaanval uit die son gekom het. Waarskuwingsbeamptes teen lugvliegtuie het een van hulle neergeskiet en 'n ander ernstig beskadig.

Grapple het op 15 Julie Kwajalein, die verhoog vir die Guam -aanval, skoongemaak, en 6 dae later het hy Guam gestaan ​​ter ondersteuning van die eerste golf van aanvalstroepe. Haar noodsaaklike reddingswerk in Guam het ingesluit dat gestrandte landingsvaartuie van die strande afgetrek en beskadigde skepe herstel is, gewoonlik binne die bereik van vyandelike vuur. Sloopbemannings van Grapple het ook die belangrike werk verrig om die ingang van die Apra Harbour van 'n Japannese vragskip wat deur Amerikaanse bomwerpers gesink is, skoon te maak. Na die konsolidasie van Guam keer Grapple terug na Espiritu Santo via Entwetok vir herstelwerk en voorbereiding vir die volgende groot aanval.

Met 'n konvooi op Florida Island, het Grapple op 4 September gevaar vir die aanvanklike aanrandingsfase op Peleliu -eiland, Palaus, wat op 15 September begin het. Onder konstante vuur van die vyand se oewerbatterye het sy boeie met klein vaartuie in Peleliu se beskermende rif neergelê voordat sy gestuur is om Wadleigh (DD-689) te help, erg beskadig in 'n mynveld. Terwyl hy aan die vernietiger vir gestremdes werk, 'n projek wat meer as 2 weke geduur het, het Grapple ook 'n aantal gestrandte landingsvaartuie bygestaan ​​en ander tydelik herstel.

Op 24 Desember het Grapple die Golf van Leyte binnegegaan, laat op die toneel van een van die bloedigste en mees beslissende vlootgevegte van die oorlog, vir verdere reddingswerk. Vier dae later het sy 3 die Mindanao -golf ingevaar om William Hawkins te red, 'n verlate Liberty -skip wat steeds smeul van kamikaze -aanvalle. Die reddingsskip, met Sharon op sleeptou, en haar twee verwoesters -begeleiers is in die vroeë oggendure van 30 Desember deur Japannese vegvliegtuie aangeval, maar die vliegtuie is weggery.

Van Leyte af trek Grapple noord toe die inval in die Filippyne diep in die vyandelike gebied by die Lingayen -golf ontvou, weer in die aanvanklike aanrandingsfase. Briljante bergingswerk by die Lingayen -golf van 6 Januarie tot 26 Februarie 1945 het Grapple en haar bemanning die Navy Unit Citation besorg.

Sy het tot en met 7 Mei op die brandweer-, reddings- en bergingsstasie in Ulithi en Saipan gebly en het haar onderskei in brandbestrydingspogings op die draer Randolph, wat op 11 Maart deur kamikazes getref is. Nadat hy 'n bak en 'n aansteker na Leyte gesleep het, vaar Grapple na Pearl Harbor. Op 6 Junie is sy herlei om William Hawkins by te staan ​​naby Johnston Island; Toe sy die koopman sleep, bereik sy Hawaii op 11 Junie en buig net lank genoeg om haar sleep af te skakel voordat sy na Portland, Oreg, gaan.

Japan het oorgegee voordat Grapple op 19 Oktober weer Hawaii bereik het. Daar het sy verskillende pligte uitgevoer totdat sy na die kus teruggekeer het. Sy bereik San Diego op 16 Mei, staak daar 30 Augustus 1946 en gaan in reserwe.

Met die uitbreek van vyandelikhede in Korea, het Grapple weer 20 Desember 1951 weer in diens geneem in San Diego, terwyl luitenant Roy Coniam in bevel was. Na opleidingsoefeninge vaar sy na Pearl Harbor en vandaar na Japan en bereik Sasebo 8 Mei 1952. Vyf dae later vaar sy na Korea en sluit aan by die Britse eenhede van die Verenigde Nasies se vloot by Daido Ko op 17 Mei. later vaar sy na Ullong Do en word tydelik omskep in 'n 'laboratorium vir deklaag', terwyl vlootdokters woes probeer het om 'n tifus -epidemie wat die skiereiland oorstroom het, te stuit.

Op 8 Augustus het Grapple met 'n vlieëvanger begin diens aan die Koreaanse kus, terwyl hy in die nag patrolleer om vyandige sampans te stuit wat myne in die vlak lê terwyl sy op anker naby Wonsan op 12 Augustus, het Grapple onder groot vuur gekom van die batterye en voordat sy die gebied kon skoonmaak. is net onder die waterlyn getref. Haar skadebeheerpartytjie het die onontplofte projektiel verwyder en die 6 "by 15" gat opgedruk. As gevolg van 'n fout met identifikasie seine, het Chief op 'n afstand van ongeveer 900 gaurds op Grapple losgebrand. Verskeie skulpe het kortgekom of bokant die skip ontplof, maar 'n 3 -duim -projektiel het net bokant die loodshuis getref en 2 mans doodgemaak en 11 ander ernstig beseer en groot skade aan loodshuis en geweerdek aangerig. Na herstelwerk by Sasebo, keer Grapple terug na Korea en maak nog drie "vliegvanger" patrollies om Amerikaanse skepe te beskerm wat van die strand af werk, voordat hulle terugkeer na Pearl Harbor 9 Desember 1902. Sy vaar daarna vir opknapping in Seattle.

Daarna het Grapple in Pearl Harbor gevestig en 'n verskeidenheid bergingspligte in die Midde-Stille Oseaan en ander gebiede uitgevoer. In 1953, 195O, 1956 en 1957 het die laat somer deur Arktiese toevoer -cruises haar deur die Aleoetiese waters geneem en na die gevaarlike ysvlakke van die Arktiese Sirkel om eenhede van die vloot wat daar gestasioneer is, te herstel en te voorsien. In nege cruises in die Wes -Stille Oseaan het Grapple die Stille Oseaan oorgesteek na Korea, Japan, Formosa, die Filippyne, Suid -Viëtnam en Hong Kong. Hierop het Grapple uitgebreide ROK- en nasionalistiese Chinese duikers opgelei in die nuutste bergingstegnieke.

Buitengewone pligte vir Grapple was om die koraalrif te skiet om die ingang van die hawe op Johnston -eiland in April 1964 te verbreed voor kerntoetse. Boonop, terwyl sy bereid was om tydens 'n opvlam in die Quemoy-Matsu-omgewing in Augustus en September 1958 op te tree, het sy Hilo Hawaii gehelp om op te skop na 'n verwoestende vloedgolf in Mei 1960. Gedurende Julie en Augustus 1964 het sy deelgeneem aan die suksesvolle berging operasie om Frank Knox (DDR-742) te bevry, gegrond op die Pratas-rif in die Suid-Chinese See.

By vertrek uit Pearl Harbor op 16 November 1966 het Grapple op 10 Desember waters van Suid -Viëtnam bereik vir bergings- en reddingsoperasies. Laat in die maand het sy voorberei om 'n gegronde sleepboot uit 'n rif noord van Hue, Suid -Viëtnam, te red. Grapple is nog steeds op die stasie in die Stille Oseaan, en bied waardevolle bergings- en reddingswerk vir vliegtuie en skepe, asook neem deel aan 'n verskeidenheid van verskillende pligte en oefeninge.

Grapple het een gevegster ontvang vir diens in die Tweede Wêreldoorlog en een vir Koreaanse diens.

Volgens 'n Oorlogsdagboek van COMSERON 12, is hierdie sub van 80 voet grootgemaak deur 'werkpartye' uit water van 60 voet in die Tanapag-hawe, Saipan, op ongeveer 16 Augustus 1944.   Verder noem die Oorlogsdagboek in die Narrative of the Day (16 Augustus) dat die sub vir inspeksie aan ISCOM Saipan oorgedra is en naby 'n oliedok geland het. -33), USS Gear (ARS-34) en USS Grapple (ARS-7), en die sub word nie genoem nie.

Operasie DOMINIESE kerntoetse 1962, afdeling 1

Joint Task Force 8 is geskep as 'n militêre bevelstruktuur vir interdienste -deelname aan die DOMINIC I -reeks.

DOMINIC I is toegewys aan toetse in die Pacific Basin, terwyl die II -fase uitgevoer is op die huidige Nevada National Security Site (NNSS/N2S2).

In die opsomming na, tydens en na die Kubaanse missielkrisis, het 96 kerntoetse in 1962 plaasgevind. Hier is die getalle wat met verwante boekjaarbedrywighede gelys word:

34 NOUGAT: wapenontwikkeling
36 DOMINIEK I: wapenontwikkeling, kernverskynsels op groot hoogte en onder water, afleweringsisteme, opsporing en militêre effekte
22 STORAX: wapenontwikkeling en een oorvleuelende PLOWSHARE -opgrawingstoets genaamd Sedan
4 SONBEAM (DOMINIC II): toetse van klein taktiese koppe, 'n mobiele afleweringsisteem, hul militêre effekte en troepemaneuvers

Alle kerntoetse vereis die goedkeuring van die Amerikaanse presidente tydens hul operasies.

Die "beter dooie as rooi" Cold Warriors sou ontsteld wees oor die linkerkantse beeld.

Instrumentsleepwaens was deurdringend tydens kerntoetsoperasies om waardevolle wetenskaplike data vas te lê.

Wapenontwikkelingstoetse is uitgevoer vanaf Chistmas Island/Kiritimati, nou deel van die Republiek Kiribati, in die Line Islands -groep.

Vergelyk dit met 'n derdeparty -pos van die oorspronklike kleurtoestand:

September 1961: Sowjette hervat toetse met die grootste megatonnage -reeks in die geskiedenis
24 Oktober 1962: film se verklaring van die aktivering van die Joint Task Force 8 deur presidensiële besluit
1 April 1962: doeldatum vir die begin van die toets in die Stille Oseaan -teater
Begin November 1962: DOMINIEK I is voltooi

Wat? Die datum vir aktivering moes op 24 Oktober 1961 gesê gewees het binne 'n maand na die Sowjet -kern hervatingsproewe.


7de eskader, 17de Kavalerieregiment

Die 17de Kavalerieregiment is eers op 30 Junie 1916 onder die bepalings van die National Defense Act van 1916 in Fort Bliss, TX georganiseer en op 1 Julie 1916 saamgestel. Op daardie tydstip het generaal Pershing slegs 'n kort rukkie Amerikaanse militêre formasies na Mexiko geneem. vroeër en die behoefte aan kavallerietroepe was dringend.

Oorspronklik georganiseer as G Troop, 17de Kavalerieregiment die 7de Eskader, 17de Kavallerieregiment is formeel heraktiveer op 25 November 1966. Die Eskader het die naam "Ruthless Riders" aangeneem en kort daarna, op 28 Oktober 1967 as 'n aparte Lugkavallerie -eskader ontplooi. van die 1ste Lugvaartbrigade. Die missie van die eskader was om verkenning en sekuriteit te bied vir die 4de Infanteriedivisie en ander geallieerde eenhede. Die eskader het gereeld suksesvolle gevegsoperasies uitgevoer, waardevolle intelligensie versamel en vyandelike soldate doodgemaak en gevange geneem. Vir hul prestasies en uitstekende gevegsdiens is die eskader bekroon met 'n presidensiële eenheidsaanhaling en vier dapper eenheidstoekennings vir hul optrede in Viëtnam.

Die eskader het na-oorlogse diens in Fort Hood, Texas, gesien waar hulle by die 1ste Kavalerie-afdeling en die 6de Lugkavallerie-gevegsbrigade, Fort Hood Texas, ingedeel is, waar hulle as aanvalhelikopter-eskader gedien het. Die 7de eskader, die 17de Kavallerieregiment is weer op 16 Julie 1986 geïnaktiveer.

In 2001 het die organisasie van die Amerikaanse weermag aansienlik verander as gevolg van transformasie om die wêreldoorlog teen terrorisme te beveg. Voordat hulle na Operation Iraqi Freedom III, 1st Squadron, 17th Cavalry Regiment gestuur is, is 82d Airborne Division beveel om in die vroeë lente van 2006 van Fort Bragg, Noord-Carolina, na Fort Campbell, Kentucky, te verhuis. 17de Kavalerie het die benaming as die "Palehorse" -eskader aangeneem met die leuse "Death Rides." Na 'n suksesvolle ontplooiing ter ondersteuning van Operation Iraqi Freedom III, is die eskader op 10 April 2006 weer aangewys as 7de eskader, 17de Kavalerieregiment, wat dien as deel van die 159ste Combat Aviation Brigade, 101ste Airborne Division (Air Assault), Fort Campbell , Kentucky.

In Desember 2008 het die eskader na Afghanistan ontplooi ter ondersteuning van Operation Enduring Freedom, wat 'n basis van bedrywighede in FOB Fenty, Jalalabad, Afghanistan, gestig het. Die eskader dien dapper en verdien 'n verdienstelike lof van die eenheid, 'n dapper eenheidstoekenning en word erken as die weermag se top-lugvaart-eenheid vir hul heldhaftige en standvastige gevegsaksies op die moeilike terrein en hoogs omstrede gebiede van die streekkommando-Oos.

Ongeveer 'n jaar na hul terugkeer uit Jalalabad, het die eskader in Desember 2010 na Afghanistan teruggekeer, hierdie keer met operasies in Kandahar, Afghanistan, waar hulle uitgevoer het, aggressiewe verkennings- en veiligheidsmissies, sowel as lugaanvalbeveiliging en opleidingshulp aan die Afghan Air Corps. .

Elemente van die eskader is weer einde 2013 ontplooi ter ondersteuning van Operation Enduring Freedom, waar hulle 'n voorbeeld van die kavalerie was deur verkennings-, sekuriteits-, vinnige reaksiemag en FOB-verdedigingsoperasies in sowel RC-Oos as RC-Suid te verskaf. Die optrede en pogings van die Palehorse -soldate was ook 'n integrale deel van die versekering van veiligheid tydens die presidensiële verkiesings in Afghanistan in 2014.

7de eskader, 17de Kavallerieregiment is op 17 Julie 2015 in Fort Campbell, Kentucky, geaktiveer as deel van die Army Aviation Restructuring Initiative, maar die gesamentlike afstamming en nalatenskap daarvan sal voortleef namate die Palehorse-eskader heraktiveer is as deel van die 1ste Lugkavalerie Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division op 22 Oktober 2015 in Fort Hood, Texas.

This section contains the names of sailors who served aboard USS AULT. Dit is geen amptelike lys nie, maar bevat die name van matrose wat hul inligting ingedien het.

USS AULT was laid down on 15 November 1943 at Kearny, N.J., by the Federal Shipbuilding and Drydock Co. launched on 26 March 1944 sponsored by Mrs. Margaret U. Ault, the widow of Comdr. Ault and commissioned on 31 May 1944, Comdr. Joseph C. Wylie in command.

After fitting out, the destroyer departed New York on 10 July 1944 for shakedown training in the Caribbean. She returned to New York for post-shakedown availability and to complete preparations for the long cruise to join the action in the Pacific. Acting as an escort for WILKES-BARRE (CL 103), AULT sailed on 6 September for Trinidad. Detached from escort duty upon her arrival, she transited the Panama Canal and proceeded independently via San Diego to Pearl Harbor where she arrived on 29 September.

After three months of intensive training in Hawaiian waters, the warship got underway on 18 December and headed west to join Vice Admiral John S. McCain's Fast Carrier Task Force. After a refueling stop at Eniwetok on Christmas Day, AULT entered Ulithi Lagoon on 28 December 1944 and, along with her sister ships of Destroyer Squadron (DesRon) 62, reported to Rear Admiral Bogan for duty in the escort screen of Task Group (TG) 38.2.

When AULT reached the forward area, Leyte was in American hands but the Philippines were still the focus of the carrier's operations, and they were directed to strike targets on Luzon and Formosa early in January 1945. AULT sortied on 30 December 1944 with TG 38.2 screening that task group. After the strike on Formosa on 9 January, the destroyer in company with WALDRON (DD 699), CHARLES S. SPERRY (DD 697), and JOHN W. WEEKS (DD 701), swept Bashi Channel ahead of Task Force (TF) 38, while proceeding into the South China Sea. Heavy weather as well as the proximity of the enemy created a tense atmosphere in which the carriers continued to mount strikes against the Camranh Bay area, Hong Kong, Hainan, Swatow, and the Formosa Strait. Returning to the Pacific through the Balintang Channel on the night of 20 January, the task force launched final strikes against Formosa and Okinawa before returning to Ulithi on 25 January.

Shortly before the assault on Iwo Jima, TF 38 was reorganized as TF 58 under Vice Admiral Mitscher. AULT was assigned to Rear Admiral Sherman's ESSEX (CV 9) TG 58.3, which launched diversionary strikes against Formosa, Luzon, and the Japanese mainland on 16 and 17 February. The carriers provided air cover for the operations on Iwo Jima on 19 February and raided the Tokyo area on the 25th and Okinawa on 1 March before retiring to Ulithi on 4 March.

The destroyer returned to the action with TG 58.3 on 14 March for operations to neutralize Japanese air power during the forthcoming Okinawa campaign. In response to strikes against Kyushu and Honshu, the Japanese retaliated with air strikes against the task group and, on 20 March, AULT splashed her first two enemy planes. On 23 and 24 March, the task group launched preinvasion strikes against Okinawa and, on 27 March, AULT assisted the ships of DesRon 62 and four cruisers in shore bombardment of Minami Daito Shima. The warship's next two months were enlivened by days and nights of continuous general quarters. Kamikaze attacks on 6 and 7 April damaged HAYNSWORTH (DD 700) and HANCOCK (CV 19). On 11 April, a suicide plane that missed ESSEX came perilously close to AULT but her gunners splashed the plane close aboard her starboard quarter. KIDD (DD 661) was badly hit that day. AULT again participated in the bombardment of Minami Daito Shima on 10 May, then rejoined the task force to assist in repelling heavy enemy air attack. While screening BUNKER HILL (CV 17) on the morning of the 11th, AULT splashed one kamikaze, but two others hit the carrier. After rescuing 29 men from the stricken ship, the destroyer escorted her to the replenishment group and rejoined the action on the 13th. During attacks on 13 and 14 May, she succeeded in splashing three more planes. On 1 June, AULT put into San Pedro Bay, Leyte, after 80 days at sea.

Task Force 58 was redesignated TF 38 and, on 1 July, AULT sortied for strikes against the Japanese home islands. On 18 and 19 July, the ship joined with Cruiser-Division 18 and other destroyers in an antishipping sweep of Sagami Wan and a bombardment of Nojima Saki. The following day, she rejoined the task group and continued to support the carriers until Japan capitulated on 15 August.

AULT operated off the coast of Honshu on patrol until 2 September when she entered Tokyo Bay and anchored near MISSOURI (BB 63) during the formal surrender ceremony on board that battleship. The destroyer soon resumed patrol with the task group out of Tokyo and continued that duty until 30 October, when she steamed for Sasebo, Japan, to perform more carrier and escort duties. On 31 December 1945, the destroyer departed Japan, bound for the United States, and arrived at San Francisco on 20 January 1946. After a short respite, she was underway again and headed via the Panama Canal for Boston. Following brief stops along the east coast, the vessel entered the shipyard in Boston on 26 April 1946 for a well-deserved overhaul.

The yard work was completed on 15 March 1947, and AULT steamed to Charleston, S.C., her base for local operations and training exercises until 12 July, when she sailed for New Orleans and two years there as a Naval Reserve training ship. During her operations in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean, she visited such ports as Guantanamo Bay, Cuba Kingston, Jamaica Coco Solo, Canal Zone Port-au-Prince, Haiti Veracruz, Mexico and Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua. During this period, she also performed planeguard duties for carriers operating out of Pensacola, Fla., and underwent an overhaul in Charleston from 24 February to 11 May 1948.

On 21 August 1949, after a month of intensive training in Guantanamo Bay, AULT put into Norfolk to fit out for her first Mediterranean cruise. From 6 to 16 September, the warship steamed across the Atlantic to join 6th Fleet tactical exercises and maneuvers, including a simulated assault on Cyprus. Her ports of call included Aranci Bay, Sardinia Cannes, France Argostoli and Piraeus, Greece and Famagusta, Cyprus. AULT departed Gibraltar on 16 November headed for the British Isles and put into Plymouth, England, on 19 November. Prior to leaving Europe, she called at Antwerp, Belgium Rouen, France Portland, England and Leith, Scotland. She moored in Norfolk on 26 January 1950 and prepared for inactivation. She was placed out of commission, in reserve, on 31 May and was towed to the Charleston Naval Shipyard for berthing in the Inactive Reserve Fleet.

However, her respite was brief. With the outbreak of the Korean War, the Navy needed more active destroyers. On 15 November 1950, AULT was recommissioned at Charleston under the command of Comdr. Harry Marvin-Smith. She steamed to her home port, Norfolk, for the Christmas holidays and to Guantanamo Bay for refresher training in March. After a post-shakedown overhaul in Charleston, the ship returned to her home port, sortied with her sister ships of DesRon 22, and carried out antisubmarine warfare exercises in Cuban waters. She returned to Norfolk on 13 August for upkeep.

AULT sailed for the Mediterranean on 3 September for another tour with the 6th Fleet and stopped for liberty calls in ports in Sicily, Italy, France, Greece, and Portugal. On 30 January 1952, she departed Gibraltar in Destroyer Division (DesDiv) 222 and steamed via Bermuda to Norfolk where she arrived on 10 February.

The warship's activities during the first few months of 1952 consisted of training exercises in the Virginia capes, Caribbean operations, and an upkeep period in Charleston. On 4 June, she embarked midshipmen for a training cruise that took them to Torbay, England Le Havre, France and Guantanamo Bay. Upon her arrival back at Norfolk on 4 August, AULT conducted local type training into the new year.

During February 1953, the ship participated in drills in the Caribbean while operating out of St. Thomas and St. Croix, Virgin Islands. On 11 March, she commenced an overhaul in the Charleston Naval Shipyard. Upon completion of the yard work, she steamed back via her home port to Guantanamo Bay where she arrived on 31 July for refresher training. Following two months training and one month loading supplies, AULT departed Norfolk on 2 November with DesDiv 222 for an around-the-world cruise. After transiting the Panama Canal and stopping at San Diego, Pearl Harbor, and Midway, she arrived at Yokosuka, Japan, on 6 December and reported for duty with the 7th Fleet.

On 20 December, AULT collided with HAYNSWORTH (DD 700) during ASW exercises in the Sea of Japan. The former's bow was torn off at frame eight, and the damaged destroyer was towed to Yokosuka for repairs by GRAPPLE (ARS 7). On 14 March 1954, AULT once again got underway for training and a subsequent voyage westward through the Indian Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea, across the Atlantic Ocean, to arrive home at Norfolk on 4 June. She operated with various warships along the way and made port calls at Hong Kong, Singapore Colombo, Ceylon Port Said, Egypt Athens Naples Villefranche, France Barcelona, Spain and Gibraltar. For the remainder of 1954, she operated along the east coast.

For the first six months of 1955, the destroyer conducted Caribbean exercises and local operations, including planeguard duty off Jacksonville, Fla., with carrier LAKE CHAMPLAIN (CV 39). She entered the Norfolk Naval Shipyard on 1 July for a three-month overhaul which was followed by one month of refresher training at Guantanamo Bay. The warship returned to her home port on 26 November and commenced type training and local operations along the east coast.

On 1 May 1956, AULT sailed for the Mediterranean where she participated in Kiel Week ceremonies in Kiel, Germany 6th Fleet exercises and a month and one-half in the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf. The cruise ended with her arrival in Norfolk on 17 September.

On 28 January 1957, AULT got underway again with DesRon 22 for a five-month tour of duty overseas. The destroyer exercised with the 6th Fleet in the Mediterranean and called at ports in Italy, Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, and Sicily before returning to Norfolk in June. After three months of local operations along the east coast, AULT sortied with ESSEX on 3 September to join other destroyers in North Atlantic and Arctic waters for Operation "Strikeback." Upon completion of the exercise, she put into Cherbourg, France, on 30 September for a short leave period before heading home. She moored in Norfolk on 21 October and resumed local operations. On 19 November she entered the Norfolk Naval Shipyard.

After a four-month overhaul, refresher training, and upkeep, the destroyer got underway on 17 June 1958 for hunter-killer operations in the Atlantic with LEYTE (CV 32). On 2 September, she steamed in company with DesDiv 222 to the Mediterranean for another six-month deployment before resuming local operations out of Norfolk in March 1959.

In June, the ship entered the Great Lakes for Operation "Inland Sea," a celebration honoring the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway. Later in the year, she assisted the Fleet Sonar School in Key West, Fla., and participated in Atlantic coast exercises.

With the beginning of 1960, AULT was again deployed to the Mediterranean. During her seven-month tour with the 6th Fleet, the destroyer became one of the first American warships to enter the Black Sea since World War II. She returned to Norfolk in September and commenced overhaul in December. AULT emerged from the shipyard in March 1961, sailed to Guantanamo Bay for refresher training, and then resumed normal operations. She returned to the Mediterranean in August to participate in NATO Exercises "Checkmate I" and "Checkmate II," and Operation "Greenstone." She also took part in Operation "Royal Flush V" with the British Navy prior to her steaming back to the United States.

In June 1962, AULT entered the Boston Naval Shipyard for a fleet rehabilitation and modernization (FRAM) overhaul. Designed to extend the life of the destroyer by eight years, the overhaul enabled her to meet the challenge of newer and faster enemy submarines. AULT's 40-millimeter and 20-millimeter gunmounts were removed, and her 01-level afterdeck was converted to a helicopter flight deck to facilitate the use of drone antisubmarine helicopters (DASH), one of the Navy's newest weapon systems which enabled the destroyer to reach out farther in search of submarine targets.

After completion of the overhaul in February of 1963, AULT devoted the rest of the year to improving her readiness and the skill of her crew through various exercises and training cruises. Following a midshipmen cruise during the summer, the ship proceeded to Norfolk to take on DASH and to continue training. AULT was the first destroyer to carry the drones to Europe, when she sortied for the Mediterranean in February 1964 with DesDiv 142. Following participation in NATO exercises and visits at the usual ports in the Mediterranean, the destroyer returned to the United States and a new home port, Mayport, Fla. She spent the remainder of the year operating in the Key West area. In January 1965, she participated in Operation "Springboard" in the Caribbean which was highlighted by several gunnery exercises and the firing of hundreds of rounds of ammunition in shore bombardment exercises at Culebra Island. The warship also trained in Hunter-Killer operations in March and was on station in the western Atlantic for the Gemini 3 space shot.

On 17 March, AULT steered a familiar course toward the Mediterranean. Besides a full three-month schedule of drills, the ship made port calls in Marseilles, Golfe Juan, Livorno, Naples, and Palma before returning to Norfolk to spend the last four months of 1965 in the local operating areas training, requalifying in gunfire support, and going to sea for hurricane evasion. As a result of her intensive training, AULT won the DesRon 14 battle efficiency award, as well as battle efficiency awards for both the operations and weapons departments.

AULT participated in Operation "Springboard" in January and February 1966, conducting ASW operations, shore bombardment, a full power run, and various gunnery exercises. She returned to Mayport only to head out to sea again for planeguard duty with INTREPID (CVA 11). Upon her return to her home port, the destroyer underwent a preoverhaul availability and then entered the Charleston Naval Shipyard on 12 April for major work which ended on 14 September. She arrived back in Mayport on 7 October and devoted the last quarter of the year to training at Guantanamo Bay in preparation for a lengthy deployment to Vietnam.

In company with DesDiv 161, AULT departed Mayport on 7 February 1967, transited the Panama Canal on 12 February, and stopped at Pearl Harbor, Midway, and Yokosuka before joining the 7th Fleet on 11 March. After a short period of ASW drills with SPINAX (SS 489) near Subic Bay, she steamed with TICONDEROGA (CVA 14) to station in the Gulf of Tonkin for planeguard duties. On 16 April, the destroyer was assigned to TU 77.1.1 for Operation "Sea Dragon," offensive surface operations against waterborne logistic craft and coastal defense sites in North Vietnam. As part of this unit, she joined COLLETT (DD 730), BOSTON (CAG 1), and HMAS HOBART in conducting sweeps from Cap Lay north to Thanh Hoa.

The warship was relieved on 30 April and returned to Subic Bay for upkeep. On 7 May, she got underway to the III and IV Corps areas of South Vietnam to provide gunfire support. For the next three weeks, AULT responded to requests for shore bombardment during the day, and for harrassment, interdiction,and illumination fire during the night. As the only destroyer available in both Corps areas, she was responsible for the coast from the mouth of the Mekong in the IV Corps area to Vung Tau and Ham Tan in the III Corps area.

From 28 May to 2 June, AULT provided gunfire support in the I Corps area then proceeded to Kaohsiung, Formosa, for upkeep alongside DELTA (AR 9) and then a week of rest and relaxation in Sasebo. On 19 June, the ship returned to the I Corps area of South Vietnam and, in the next three weeks, fired over 6,000 rounds of 5-inch ammunition at targets in the Quang Ngai and Chu Lai areas. After a six-day port visit to Hong Kong and five days of upkeep in Subic Bay, she once again operated in Operation "Seadragon," came under heavy fire from coastal defense batteries north of Dong Hoi, but suffered no casualties or damage. On 1 August 1967, AULT completed her Vietnam tour and began her voyage home. She stopped at Kaohsiung, Yokosuka, Midway, Pearl Harbor, San Francisco, and Acapulco, and even made a side trip south of the equator to convert "Pollywogs" into "Shellbacks." The destroyer transited the Panama Canal on 7 September, arrived in Mayport on 11 September, and devoted the remainder of 1967 and the first six weeks of 1968 to leave and upkeep.

From 12 to 23 February, AULT participated in Operation "Springboard 1968" in the San Juan operating area. On 4 March, she participated in another Caribbean exercise, Operation "Rugby-Match," a major fleet exercise which simulated a realistic air, surface, and subsurface threat environment. On 27 April, AULT sailed with BIGELOW (DD 942) for the Mediterranean and four months of continuous 6th Fleet operations. She returned to Mayport on 27 September, underwent upkeep, and performed three weeks of planeguard duties in December for SHANGRI-LA (CV 38). As a reward for her high degree of readiness and training, AULT was again awarded the battle efficiency "E."

For the first quarter of 1969, the destroyer spent most of her time in port at Mayport. She made cruises to the Caribbean in May, June, and July for training and returned to her home port to prepare for her last overseas deployment. AULT sailed for the North Atlantic on 2 September 1969 to participate in the NATO exercise, Operation "Peacekeeper." However, her orders were modified on 24 September, and she steamed to the Mediterranean to relieve ZELLARS (DD 777). She remained with the 6th Fleet for a three-month cruise highlighted by her participation in Operation "Emery Cloth," a British ASW exercise in which AULT was the sole representative of the United States Navy. On 4 December, the warship returned home and prepared for Naval Reserve duty. She was designated a Naval Reserve training ship on 1 January 1970, and steamed to Galveston, Tex., on 12 January. There, she relieved HAYNSWORTH (DD 700) as training ship for Houston naval reservists.

AULT spent the next three years making training cruises in the Gulf of Mexico and in the Caribbean. On 1 May 1973, she departed Galveston for her last cruise, a voyage to Mayport for inactivation. The destroyer was decommissioned on 16 July 1973, ending a career of 29 years of service. Struck from the Navy list on 1 September 1973, AULT was sold to the Boston Metals Company, Baltimore, Md., and subsequently scrapped.

AULT earned five battle stars during World War II and two during her operations in Vietnam.

Accidents aboard USS AULT:

William Bowen Ault - born in Enterprise, Oreg., on 6 October 1898 - served briefly as an enlisted man in the Navy (19 April 1917 - 23 April 1918) before entering the Naval Academy as a midshipman. Graduating on 2 June 1922, Ault served at sea in the battleship ARKANSAS (BB 33) before reporting to the Naval Air Station (NAS), Pensacola, Fla., on 23 August 1924 for flight instruction. After winning his wings, Ault served with Aircraft Squadrons, Scouting Fleet, before commencing a tour in the aviation unit of the light cruiser CINCINNATI (CL 6) on 10 September 1925. Detached from that ship a little over a year later, he served at the Naval Academy as an instructor before reporting for duty with Observation Squadron (VO) 3, Aircraft Squadrons, Scouting Fleet, on 15 June 1927.

Further duty at the Naval Academy, as an instructor in the Department of Ordnance and Gunnery, followed before he flew with Patrol Squadron (VP) 10-S, Scouting Fleet, based in aircraft tender WRIGHT (AV 1). He then served on the staff of Capt. George W. Steele, Commander, Aircraft, Scouting Force, from June of 1931 to June of 1932 and alternated tours of duty afloat and ashore: in Torpedo Squadron (VT) 1-S, based on board LEXINGTON (CV 2) at NAS, Norfolk, Va. and in the observation unit of the battleship MISSISSIPPI (BB 41).

Ault - by this time a lieutenant - next assisted in fitting-out YORKTOWN (CV 5), thus becoming a "plank owner" of that ship when she went into commission in the autumn of 1937. He then served in YORKTOWN's sister ship, ENTERPRISE (CV 6), commanding VT-6. On 5 August 1939, less than a month before the start of World War II in Poland, Ault assumed command of the Naval Reserve Aviation Base, Kansas City, Kansas, a billet in which he served into 1941.

On 22 July 1941, Lt. Cmdr. Ault once more reported to LEXINGTON, and, the following day, became her air group commander. He was serving in that capacity when the Japanese air attack on the Fleet at Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941 drew the United States into World War II.

Ault helped to plan and execute the attacks on Japanese shipping at Lea and Salamaua, New Guinea, in March 1942. On the day before the strike, 9 March, Ault and a wingman flew to Port Moresby, where the group commander learned of the existance of a key mountain pass through the forbidding Owen Stanleys, information that, in the words of the task force commander, contributed "a great deal toward [the] success" of the attacks that ensued. On the day of the raid, 10 March, Ault, given the authority to carry out or abort the attack on the basis of whatweather he found, flew unaccompanied to the pass and orbitted. Finding favorable weather, he transmitted information to that effect and directed the passage of planes from LEXINGTON and YORKTOWN (CV 5) toward Lae and Salamaua. Those groups sank three transports, put a fourth transport out of action, and caused varying degrees of damage to a light cruiser, a minelayer, three destroyers and a seaplane carrier. The transmontane raid postponed the Japanese projected conquest of Tulagi and Port Moresby for a month, the time necessary to replace the vital amphibious ships lost off New Guinea and marshal carrier air support. Commander, Aircraft Battle Force, later commended Ault for his work.

In the subsequent Battle of the Coral Sea in May 1942, which itself resulted from the successful Lae and Salamaua raid, Ault led LEXINGTON's group into combat, both in the attacks on the Japanese light carrier SHOHO on 7 May and in those on the fleet carrier SHOKAKU on the 8th. During the latter action, both Ault and his radio-gunner, Aviation Radioman 1st Class William T. Butler, apparently suffered wounds when "Zero" fighters attacked the group commander's plane. Ault tried in vain to return to a friendly deck, not knowing that LEXINGTON had taken mortal damage in his absence. Unaware of LEXINGTON's distress he radioed the ship at 1449, to tell her that he had only enough gasoline for 20 minutes. YORKTOWN, which had taken over communications for LEXINGTON, heard Ault's broadcast but failed to pick him up on her radar. Sadly informed that he was on his own but wished "Good luck," LEXINGTON's air group commander asked that word be relayed to the ship that "We got a 1,000 pound bomb hit on a flat top." Ault changed course to the north, in a last vain attempt to be picked up on radar. YORKTOWN again wished him good luck. Ault, perhaps grimly aware of the fate that lay ahead, radioed bravely: "O.K. So long, people. We got a 1,000 pound hit on the flat top." No further word was ever received from LEXINGTON's air group commander, and neither he nor Aviation Radioman Butler was ever seen again.

Ault's courageous leadership of LEXINGTON's air group in the Battle of the Coral Sea earned him the posthumous award of the Navy Cross.
