Pri 64 napadih so letala potopila ali resno poškodovala 25 čolnov in uničila večji del njihovih zalog nafte in skladišč.

5. avgust 1964: Incident v zalivu Tonkin: 1964. Sporočilo predsednika Johnsona kongresu:

& quot Sinoči sem Američanom naznanil, da je režim Severnega Vietnama izvedel nadaljnje namerne napade na ameriška pomorska plovila, ki delujejo v mednarodnih vodah, zato sem usmeril zračne akcije proti čolnom in podpornim objektom, ki se uporabljajo pri teh sovražnih operacijah. To zračno dejanje je bilo zdaj izvedeno z veliko škodo na čolnih in objektih. V akciji sta bili izgubljeni dve ameriški letali. Ta zadnja dejanja režima Severnega Vietnama so dala nov in resen obrat že tako resnim razmeram v jugovzhodni Aziji.

Vsem moramo jasno povedati, da so Združene države združene
v svoji odločenosti, da bo končal komunistično subverzijo in agresijo na tem območju. ".

1972 .


Vietnamska vojna se je nenehno zmanjševala za ameriške sile, vendar je imela ameriška mornarica še vedno vlogo.

Aprila 1972 je bila 7. flota ZDA na postaji Yankee še vedno zaposlena s podporo kopenskim silam.

Križarji in uničevalci so še naprej napadali sovražne divizije.

Predsednik Richard Nixon je ukazal nadaljevanje zračnih in pomorskih bombardiranj nad Severnim Vietnamom
odziv na ofenzivo NVA na jugu.

Šest prevoznikov - Constellation, Kitty Hawk, Hancock, Coral Sea, Saratoga in Midway - so se vsi pridružili operaciji Vlak svobode. Letala s teh plovil so zadela vojaške in logistične cilje v Dong Hoiju, Vinhu, Thanh Hoi, Haiphongu in Hanoju.

Križarka USS Oklahoma City in trije rušilci so svoje orožje urili na polotoku Do Son, majhnem pasu zemlje, ki je varoval pristope proti Haiphongu. Uničevalca Joseph Strauss in Richard B. Anderson sta zadela most Ben Hai v severnem delu DMZ (demilitarizirano območje).

Obalne baterije NVA so 17. aprila zadele uničevalnik USS Buchanan , ubil enega mornarja in ranil sedem drugih.

Chicago je bil zaslužen za sestrelitev MIG -a. Križarka USS Providence je sodelovala tudi v majski akciji v zalivu Tonkin.

Raid na pristanišče Haiphong (10. maj 1972) je vključeval križarke USS Oklahoma City, USS Providence, USS Newport News in dva uničevalca USS Buchanan in USS Hanson. Prvi napad več križarjev po drugi svetovni vojni je trajal približno 15 minut.



Tudi maja je pilot F-4 podpolkovnik Randall J. Cunningham, danes kongresnik iz Kalifornije, skupaj z poročnikom (jg) Williamom Driscollom, njegovim oficirjem za elektroniko, 10. maja sestrelil pet MiG-ov, tri letenje. USS Constellation, so postali prvi in ​​edini as mornarice v vietnamski vojni.

V tem času so vsiljivci A-6 z nosilca USS Coral Sea spustili magnetno-akustične morske mine okoli pristanišča Haiphong, da bi blokirali dotok zalog v Severni Vietnam.

Od maja do decembra 1972 v komunistična pristanišča niso vstopile velike ladje za oskrbo. Manjše čolne, ki so poskušali preiti blokado, so prestregle ladje mornarice.

Dva čolna NVA PT sta avgusta uničila uničevalec USS Rowan in križarka USS Newport News, medtem ko je bila ladja USS Providence v nočnem obstreljevanju pristanišča Haiphong.

11. oktobra je 20 mornarjev na krovu USS Newport News umrlo, 37 pa jih je bilo ranjenih v eksploziji, ki jo je povzročila okvara 8-palčne kupole pištole med misijo požarne podpore.

Od aprila do septembra 1972 je skupina križarjev-uničevalcev izstrelila več kot 111.000 nabojev. Poleg tega
pri uničenju vozil, topništva, tankov, obalnih logističnih plovil in čolnov PT je baraž ubil približno 2000 NVA.

Do sredine leta 1972 je bilo osebja mornarice v Vietnamu 2340, potem ko je oktobra 1968 doseglo vrhunec 39,265.

USS Providence Veterani se spominjajo operacije Lion's Den

Cruiser USS PROVIDENCE (CLG 6) na nedatirani fotografiji. Zbirka L-datotek NHHC.

Fundacija je bila polno zaposlena pri pripravi nove razstave v Levljevem brlogu ” za Galerijo hladne vojne, v četrtek, 3. maja, pa smo se spomnili, zakaj si prizadevamo za izgradnjo takšnih eksponatov. Narodni muzej mornarice in galerija hladne vojne sta bila počaščena z obiskom približno 60 pripadnikov USS Providence (CL 82/CLG 6) združitvena skupina. Med njimi sta bila dva mornarja, ki sta bila na krovu Providence noč odločne bitke v pristanišču Haiphong: Gary Cheever in Ken Chambers. Za tiste, ki razstave ne poznajo, se osredotoča na nočni napad leta 1972 štirih površinskih bojnih ladij ameriške mornarice globoko v sovražnikove vode. Ladje so uspešno bombardirale sovražne obale, s pomočjo letal A-7 Corsair II pa so odvrnile protinapad severnovijetnamskih torpednih čolnov.

The Providence veterani so bili v mestu na njihovem letnem srečanju, eden od številnih predmetov na njihovem zasedenem potovanju pa je bil obisk dvorca Washington Navy Yard in muzeja mornarice. Zgodaj popoldne 3. maja so se zbrale v galeriji hladne vojne in obkrožile dr. Davea Winklerja iz fundacije, ki jim je predstavil kratko zgodovino vojaške hiše Washington in razložil razloge za razvoj hladne vojne. Vojna galerija. Po opisih projektila Trident I C4 na vhodu v Galerijo, gledališču Ready Room in razstavi Operacije prikritih podmornic je Winkler opisal osnove nove razstave Lion ’s Den. Kmalu je postalo očitno, da sta v množici dva veterana bitke, Winkler pa je vprašal, ali bi radi delili svoje izkušnje. Gary Cheever je bitko opazoval z razgledne točke mostu in se ponudil, da na kratko govori zbrani množici. Po njegovih pripombah smo imeli srečo, da smo se pogovarjali tako s Cheeverjem kot s Chambersom.

Gary Cheever (na sredini, s klobukom in očali, obrnjen na levo) govori zbrani množici o operaciji Lion 's Den

Gary Cheever se je kot podpolkovnik upokojil iz ameriške vojske, vendar je bil leta 1972 mornar na križarki USS Providence ko je parila proti pristanišču Haiphong. Večer bitke je služil kot dežurni poveljnik na mostu. Opazoval je, kako se križarka para za formacijo za USS Newport News (CA 148) se pri visoki hitrosti približuje pristanišču. Čutil je, kako ladja vibrira, ko so jo močni motorji potiskali skozi temno vodo. Ko so vstopili v pristanišče, so začeli dolg zavoj v obliki črke U, ki se je odpravil v ozko pristanišče proti svojim sovražnim ciljem na kopnem. Ladja se je pri velikem zavoju opazno nagnila in Cheever se je počutil, kot da je pristaniški vijak včasih blizu površine vode, kar je povzročilo vibracije, ki jih je začutil. Vse je bilo temno in tiho, dokler se po Cheeverjevem mnenju “ ni zdelo, da je bil ukaz za streljanje dan hkrati za vse naše ladje, ko sem videl, da so bile naše 6 -palčne puške popolnoma potlačene, in naslednje, kar vem, je bilo kot zunanja svetloba zunaj. ” Videl je sovražnikove obrežne baterije, ki so streljale z uporabo nečesa, kar se je zdelo protiletalsko. Opremljen je bil z jopičem in čelado, toda ko so sovražnikovi naboji kalibra 50. začeli udarjati po zunanjosti mostu, se je zaradi varnosti umaknil za pregrado in pokukal skozi okence za pogled. Providence je ves čas bombardiranja polno polnil, zato se Cheever spomni, da je bilo stavke precej hitro konec.

Ken Chambers v galeriji hladne vojne (model USS NORTHAMPTON v ozadju) le nekaj metrov od lokacije prihajajoče razstave & quotInto the Lion 's Den & quot

Ken Chambers je bil nameščen v oddelku za zasilno dizelsko gorivo Providence v noči bitke. Medtem ko ni mogel videti, kaj se dogaja zunaj ladje v pristanišču Haiphong, so mu zvoki in vibracije povedali vse, kar je moral vedeti. Ko so se približali pristanišču, je Chambers “čutil, da se jaški pospešujejo, in vedel sem, da se nekaj dogaja. ” Na srečo tistih, ki so spodaj spraševali, kaj se dogaja, brez odprtine za pogled skozi, je bil komunikacijski sistem zakrpan v ladjo ’s PA. Mornarji po vsej ladji so slišali, kako njihovi sopotniki plujejo po Providence in usmerjanje ognja na sovražnika. Ladja je začela obstreljevati obale in Chambers je slišal sovražnikove naboje, ki so udarjali v vodo okoli njih.

Navdušeni smo bili, da smo imeli na kratko priložnost govoriti s tema dvema veteranoma operacije Lev iz Den in pozdraviti vse Providence veterani v Galeriji hladne vojne. Če želite izvedeti več o novi razstavi, ki se spominja tega drznega nočnega napada v sovražnikovih vrstah, obiščite našo stran Fundly in razmislite o donaciji za podporo njene izgradnje.

Jaz sem bil tam. USS Providence dimna ura med svežnji sprednjih in zadnjih krmišč. Kot rečeno, kakšna noč. Veliko iztokov vode med CLG 6 in rušilcem presejanja. Nisem vedel, da je prišlo do požara 50 cal, mislil je, da je zrak počil.

Bil sem na desni strani, ko se je Hilo spustil, nikoli ne bom pozabil grozne noči, ki so bile take stvari v tvojih mislih za vedno

Dobro se spomnim noči, v 5 -palčno kupolo za pištolo sem naložil prašne granate. Lepo bi bilo slišati katerega od članov MORSKEGA ODDELKA ali ČLANOV posadke ali kapetana Gibbonsa. Če so bili po tisti noči podeljeni še kakšni trakovi, mi to sporočite, saj so me na zasilni dopust Rdečega križa poslali domov, ko smo pristali v San Diegu, moja 26 -letna sestra in 3 -mesečni božji otrok sta bila umorjena doma ! Vsak odgovor je dobrodošel. SEMPER FI GUYS, CPL.Joseph C. Mallo U.S.M.C.

Mallo,
Moje ime je bilo takrat mornar Alvarez. Bil sem povezan z divizijo Boatswain. Vzel sem nakladanje, a v šesterici v kupoli s pištolo. Spomnim se, da ste se družili z množico Chicana in ponoči igrali karte. Tudi jaz se spomnim, ko je tisti helo padel in ubil tistega častnika in posadko. Tudi jaz ne bom nikoli pozabil.
Spomnim se drugega marinca z imenom Polfaol (samo v zvoku). Ne veste, ali je bil med to misijo na krovu ali je prišel po vašem odhodu. Kakorkoli, vesel sem, da vidim vaš komentar. Bog požegnaj.

Alvarez. Zdaj je to znano ime. Mornar Bagley. Imate kakšne navezanosti na Roberta Pereza ali Saundersa? Hej, rad bi ostal v stiku z vami in če je mogoče. Bili smo zelo dobra ekipa fantov.

Dobro se te spomnim, prijatelj. Se kdaj slišite s Perezom ali Gurerrom?

Alvarez, morda se me spomniš. Na prov sem prišel med razgradnjo leta 󈨍. Družili smo se v vojašnici v bazi (San Diego). Spomnim se, da ste imeli brata v marincih. Ti in še en fant sta včasih uprizorila zgodbo o boju proti “g..ks ” v tujini. Za članstvo se morate obrniti na USS Providence.org. Bog blagoslovi vas in vaše.

Spomnim se te. Vaša pravica, imel sem brata, ki je bil marinec, ki bi prišel na zabavo v San Diego z mano in mojimi brsti. Vsakič, ko je prišel, je prenočeval v vojašnici. Mislil sem, da bomo v težavah, a nikoli. Vsi fantje v vojašnici ga imajo radi, tako da je bilo v redu. Zagotovo mi je všeč slišati od sopotnika, kot si ti. Upam, da ste v svojem življenju našli gladko jadranje. Sem upokojen in živim v El Pasu, Tx. Poskrbite.

Moj mož je bil na ladji, ko je padel helikopter in njegovo ime je Edward Borrero

zdravo, povej ed allan warrell pozdravljen. skupaj smo se družili

Tisto noč sem bil na postaji gqq na visokem nebu.

AI kot vodni vodja 3. razreda na usss providene, ko je bila dana v uporabo.
Na Kubo smo šli iz Bostona, vrnili smo se v Boston, nato smo se odpravili proti južnemu Pacifiku in 2 dni iz Kube je odvrgla bombo A in vojna je bila končana. Za kratek čas smo se vrnili v Boston, nato pa za 8 mesecev v Evropo in od tam so nas odpustili.

Med napadom sem bil glavni govornik električnega telefona. Oče mi je poslal časopisni izrezek zvezde Indianaploisa, ki je povedal o napadu.

Bil sem lovec, ki je noč služil na krovu USS PROVIDENCE (CLG 6)
Umrl je kontraadmiral Rembrandt C. Robinson, USN. Delal sem v kapetanih
pisarno. Admiral je bil prvi častnik zastave, ki je bil ubit v konfliktu v Vietnamu.
Služil sem z veliko odličnimi moškimi. Res pogrešam vse, s katerimi sem služil.

Edini častnik zastave, ki je umrl v tej vojni. Tudi jaz sem bil tisto noč na krovu. Ne morem pozabiti.

Hej, Glynn, spomnim se, da si bil del tolpe X Division in da je knjižnica v redu. Imeli ste veliko sposobnosti, da ste povedali besedo in o neredu. Ste edini fant, ki sem ga kdaj poznal, ki je bil dovolj resen, da je napisal pismo predsedniku ZDA

Delal sem z vami, tipkate na magnetnem izbirnem pisalnem stroju.

Spomnim se, da sta ti in Paul Redcloud dala SP pekel, in tvojo zlomljeno puščico. Chaplin si mislil, da si svetnik.

Glynn Crooks..Naravni brat..kako si, bil sem v 2. diviziji, rešilni čolni. Ja, spomnite se izgube admirala tiste noči, imeli smo veliko čolnov v vodi, ladja je prižgala. Razburljiva vožnja v Haiphong naslednjo noč, spet avgusta! Upam, da je s tabo vse v redu.

Ronald Homewytewa SN
je bil Ronald Homer med mojo mornarico, leta 1982 se je spremenil v moje tradicionalno ime.

Hej Glynn, takrat sem bil z vami na USS Providence.
Ko sem se odpravil na potovanje, sem bil PHAN v X diviziji. Ne mine dan, da se ne spomnim vseh stvari, ki so se zgodile, ko smo bili zunaj, in veliko odličnih fantov, s katerimi sem služil. Lepo je videti, da nekateri po vseh teh letih objavljate tukaj. Vau 48 let, takrat smo bili vsi tako mladi in neuničljivi.

Tisto noč sem bil tam na svoji postaji v 6 -palčni pištoli. Bil sem pravi strelec. Nismo mogli videti, kaj se dogaja od znotraj. Ko smo prišli ven, ko je bilo na krovu ladje, je bila pokrita z medeninastimi ohišji v prahu. Bil sem mornar v 1. div. Bil sem tudi plavalec za 1St div. tisto noč smo izgubili admirala

3. razred GMG in levi kapitan pištole v kupoli 6 ″. Tisto noč je bilo vroče delo in mnogi drugi. Čeprav sem bil zaskrbljen zaradi sovražnikovega ognja, se mi je zdelo bolj verjetno, da bi katera koli vzroka nastala zaradi okvare pištole. Obesite ogenj, zagozden prelomni blok z izstrelkom v vročem sodu, pregret povratni sistem, okvarjeno tesnilo varovalk iz projektila itd.
Na drugi strani so bile tri puške leva, srednja in desna. Nekdo jih je poimenoval po ženskah, zato so jim narisali imena, Linda, Cindy, Rose. Moja prva žena se je imenovala Cindy, moja druga/trenutna žena pa se imenuje Linda. Rose še niste spoznali.

Živjo Jon, njegov Tim Wilburns (žival!) Kako si po vseh teh letih

Reynolds ali ime mornar Bagley zvoni?

Bil sem tudi v odredu mornarice. Bil bi v 5 -palčnem nosilcu za pištolo in delal v rokovalni sobi tik pod držalom za pištolo. Noči se ne spominjam dobro, zdi se, da vsi tečejo skupaj.
Ostala sem na Providenceu, dokler se ni vrnila v San Diego in bila razgrajena. Nato so me prerazporedili na letalonosilko in se za eno leto vrnil v Vietnam.
Takrat bi najverjetneje bil kapitan Lance.
Norm Neifert, “Semper Fi. ”

Bil sem tam z vami, Larry Williams, tudi l/cpl. Med napadi je delal zgornji prostor za ravnanje. Je bila raketna straža, ko smo izgubili helo. Umaknil sem pištolo, naredil prvo majico v puščavski nevihti, vendar sem se upokojil, preden sem bil obsojen. Vsako telo tukaj od ssgt sposobno ali willie.

Te avgustovske noči sem bil na ladji Providence v integriranem vodilnem podatkovnem sistemu IFDS. Večina posadke je samo namigovala, da se bo tisto noč nekaj dogajalo, ko so šli skozi linijo jedi in postregli zrezek in jastog. V nekaj urah je posadka vedela, kakšen je osnovni načrt. Od tiste noči vem, da je tisto, kar sem doživel, v živo zabeleženo v mojem spominu. Ko nas je v IFDS poklicala zastava za najnovejše informacije o 'minskih poljih', smo vsi vedeli, da bo to noč zelo drugačna in brez torte. S trdno nastavljenimi splošnimi prostori se je začelo. Povedali so nam, da smo tretja ladja na vrsti, ki vstopa v pristanišče Haiphong, dva uničevalca pred nami in en uničevalec na krmi, saj so bile edine pomembnejše oborožitvene krme naše rakete za surf-zrak. Providence je zdrznila, ko je povečala hitrost in je med navigacijo po "Mine Fiedls" večkrat navedla pristanišča, nato desni bok, nato pa je prišel ukaz za streljanje in ko je bilo konec, je bilo v Providenceu zelo malo 6 -palčnega in 5 -palčnega streliva njene revije. Nekaj ​​ur pozneje smo bili v skrajšanih prostorih, ko je naš kapitan rekel, da smo bili na misiji zelo uspešni in čestitke so prihajale od najvišje oblasti in poveljstva, vendar zaradi narave misije, za katero svet verjetno ne bi slišal kar nekaj časa. Še danes se sprašujem, zakaj vse posadke niso bile priznane za "Lions Den" z medaljo/nagrado. Ali kdo ve drugače? Hvaležen se zahvaljujem vsem sobratom za orožje za njihovo službo in strokovnost, zlasti tistega avgustovskega večera leta 1972. – Glej več na: www.navyhistory.org/2012/03/interview-admiral-holloway-operation- lions-den/#comment-122380

Živjo Howard,
Kako si? Bil sem tam, že davno nazaj in#8230 se dobro spomnite …. Mislil sem, da smo izgubili moč v pristanišču in da je nekaj patruljnih čolnov odplulo, ko so odstrelili ladjo?
Upam, da ste dobro in dobro!
Leta 1998 sem zapustil San Diego – V živo v Vegasu

DP1 Westney,
Ko sem pripeljal računalniški center na Providence, sem bil DP3. Bil sem nameščen v NELC -u (Battery Humphrey, konec Point Loma, pod svetilnikom), ko sem prišel čas za naročila, in razvijal sistemske zmogljivosti. Moj načelnik je rekel, da bi lahko šel z njim na Providence ali užival v oljarju v Indijskem oceanu. Šel sem z načelnikom. Odšel sem maja 󈨋, DP2. Dobra dolžnost, lepi spomini in odlična priprava na mojo civilno kariero …
Najbolj razburljiv dogodek v mojem času je bil potres v Sylmarju leta 1971. Providence so privezali na plaži Naal Weapons Station Seal Beach, ko je potres ‘ udaril …

Ti sopotniki in strelci so to noč dobro opravili. Odprite odprtino Odprto, brez žrtev.

Tudi jaz sem bil mornar na krovu USS Providence za ta spektakularen dogodek. Nikoli ne bom pozabil obdobja v svojem življenju, gorečega ognja iz ladijskih cevi in ​​gromovitega hrupa besne bitke. Takrat sem bil pomorščak, ki je bil zaposlen v izvršnem oddelku, v pisarni kapitana, vendar sem med GQ delal na številnih področjih po vsej ladji, bodisi v CIC -u, puškah za pištole ali pa delal v gasilski skupini, da bi zapolnil vrzeli, kjer je osebje so bili potrebni. Nikoli ne bom pozabil posadke Providence in vezi, ki je nastala v tem času našega življenja. Leta 1993 sem se upokojil iz mornarice in še vedno živim v San Diegu v Kaliforniji zelo blizu pomorske postaje. Rad bi slišal koga od članov posadke, ki je služil na krovu Providence med tem križarjenjem.

Bil sem na svoji postaji GQ v prehodu za 5 -palčnim nosilcem za 54 pištol. Jaz in še en sotekmovalec sva stopila na pristaniško stran, da bi gledala “ sranje je zadelo ventilatorja ”. Za FA brez izkušenj je bil to velik bujenje! Potem se dolgi dnevi in ​​noči ponovno napolnijo in natočijo gorivo. Na delovnih skupinah so prenesli tono 5 palcev. Ko smo se vrnili v San Diego, sem bil v posadki za razgradnjo in jo na žalost razstavil, da bi jo uničil.

Jerry, delal sem z vami v MTST. Nikoli nisem pozabil vašega humorja.

V tem obdobju sem bil na krovu in pogosto razmišljal o impresivnem timskem delu in tovarištvu ”. Rad bi se spet združil.

Bil sem CT, ki se je prostovoljno prijavil na 24 -urno odpoved v San Diegu in opravil celotno križarjenje. Dodeljen sem bil osebju admirala Robinsona, čeprav sem ga videl le redko. Pred nekaj leti sem stopil v stik z enim od njegovih sinov in mu poslal popotniško knjigo, posvečeno admiralu Robinsonu, stotniku Taylorju in poveljniku Leaverju.

Pristanišče Haiphong je bila ena najbolj intenzivnih noči.

Al
To je Z, jaz sem bil CT, ki je služil z vami. Rad bi stopil v stik.
Dobro se spomnim noči, ko je helikopter šel v vodo. Nato je bila noč v pristanišču Haiphong zelo intenzivna, ko se je ladja zibala.

Iščem nekoga z imenom D.H Renz, ki sem ga videl fotografijo iz 1. div. v knjigi potovanj 󈨀-󈨁, ki mi jo je nekdo poslal. Na fotografiji je bil strelec Mate 3. razreda. Bil je na krovu ZDA Providence. Tudi pri Turret One je nekaj pri njem. Imam nekaj njegovega in bi ga rad poiskal ali pa družinskega člana, da vidim, če bi jih to zanimalo. Vsaka informacija bi bila v pomoč. Nimam D.O.B -ja ali celo tega, kar pomenijo njegove začetnice.

Kapitan osrednje pištole, med vsem tem je bilo komaj 19 let starega, da bi eno od teh noči ohladili vročo pištolo 5 󉐒 z dvema mornarjema.

I was assigned to third division for my entire tour, even though I had graduated from gunnery school, but was made center gun captain, and after 12 hours in the guns, 6 on 6 off I had to work 6 hours with the deck crew. Speak of an injustice. But those where the times

This is Wilburn. One of the other two men.

SMSN La Mere, yessir, quite a night, especially from the signal bridge. God bless us all

I was very proud to be a part of Operation Linebacker. We had a ship of very good men and I’m honored to call each and every one of them friend.

I was on the Providence CLG-6 at the time. Operation Lion’s Den was embedded into every sailor’s memory, I know it is in mine until the end of my life.

Over the years I have thought of you and how disciplined you were and dedicated to the cause. You provide the direction I needed. Not sure where you are living now but I am in PA and perhaps we can reconnect. Take care

Phil, I’m in North West Arkansas, I’d love to see you too. We had the best guys in the fleet.

Bill.
I always have fond memories of our teamwork together. You were a dedicated hard ass but most dedicated needed to ensure our survival you can reach me at [email protected] Phil Schommer. Lets meet in your home town soon

Just like my buddy Bill Enderland said, that night is embedded in all our minds.
I was Petty Officer in charge of the 6″ shell deck that night and we sent a bunch of
rounds up there in a hurry. She was running wide open and leaning to starboard
and it was hard to stand up for a while. I had some good guys in there with me and
all did a great job. Yes there is still a lot of brass at the bottom of the Gulf of Tonkin and the South China Sea.

Jack went on to be successful in life, as did most of the men on the Providence. There was an attitude of “Keep moving forward”. On a sad note, Donald Greenaway BM-1, LPO of third division passed away from colon cancer the 9th of November of 2015. As they said in the song “Big John”………at the bottom of this mine lies a big, big man.

I am so so so sorry to hear the Donald Greenway passed in the recent months. It has been so so many years since we have all been contacted . I would like to extend my support for all of us that experience that period of Haiphong Harbor on the USS Providence. A GREAT ship and a GREAT crew, By best to everyone and let’s try to organize a reunion

So sorry to hear about the passing of Donald Greenaway. He was my first supervisor when I reported aboard USS Providence at age 17. Donald was very inspirational to this rookie kid fresh out of boot camp. I will always remember is his strong spirit and salty lingo…Rest in peace my friend!

Jack your tireless quick witted sense of humor and the many pranks you pulled help make a tough time entertaining. You got the best of Golieb on
many occasions.

I was on throttle 3 aft engine room during that run . watchin that steam gauge as we rolled out at flank

I was there that night. In main battery plot on the stable vertical actually firing the 6 inch guns.We gave them heck that night.

Remembrance:
Smoking lamp was out, all white lights were off, only red light could be used throughout the ship. We were getting close to our destination in the Tonkin Gulf. (As per John Bunn, we were close to the Chinese Island of Hainan) It appeared that helos were landing on the fantail and dropping off personal for planning in the war room or CIC. This mission included a number of ships of the 7th fleet.

That night it happened, a helo returning from the USS Coral Sea that was trying to land on the fantail touched down to close to the edge of the ship and plunged over the starboard side with the whole crew. It sunk like a rock. I understand there were no survivors. (Don Greenaway indicates that three (3) crewmembers were rescued and that the Rear Admiral and his staff died). I remember approximately 6 small boats in the water in a slow quiet search in the dark with only red lights illuminating the sea. Providence was just floating lifeless on the sea as the search continued for several hours. I could sense our vulnerability in the water as we were in enemy waters, but a thorough search was made just the same. It was cold that night, the search seemed to last a long time you could barely make out the small boats under red lights. They had on those hard hats and life jackets with their eyes to the water.

Hours later, we were underway again to Haiphong Harbor on our mission. As we got closer I remember seeing bright lights flickering and glowing in the distance. It looked beautiful as if someone were celebrating a 4th of July or something of that sort. Then I was enlightened that shore guns were firing at the ship and that we were out of range at this time. We were approaching our target off Haiphong Harbor. It was reality time, (10 May 1972) I was on a ship somewhere off north Vietnam and it was time for general quarters.

I was down in the computer room for GQ and soon could hear rocks being thrown against the hull of the ship and soon realized that it was shrapnel from exploding projectiles. I understand we made a few assaults on the mainland and inflicted good damage. All the ships then left the area quickly till we reached safe waters. The ship was vibrating from the engine and prop noise as we steamed away. It was hard to get good info on this happening for it seems that info is given on a need to know basis.
Sam Villa Ftm-3

by the way shipmate Rear Admiral Robinson and two of his staff died in the helo crash on the night of May 08, 1972 two nights before the May 10th raid on the Do Song Peninsula, Haiphong Harbor.

I was there that night also, on the bridge with flak jacket and helmet on just like all the other GQ’s. Linebacker ops were very busy, doing 3 raids up the coast just about every night and rearming out to sea, vert reps etc. I was on the bridge on sound powered phone to CIC. It was wild for a few minutes that seemed forever. I was in CIC listening in on the conversation the air controller was having with the crew of the Helo when it went down…….Sheer shock. I had wanted to do air controlling up to that point. My rate was Radarman. RDSN I served on Providence August 71-June 73. I also was on the decom team……..very sad to see our mother being taken apart.

I to was on the USS Providence

It’s been years 1972, would like to reunite

I was a Gun Fire Control Tech. 3rd class on Providence and I was at my GQ station in the 6 inch gun director during the Haiphong Harbor raid. I was at my director trainer position and was radar tracking a shore reference point. The reference was fed to the Mark 48 fire control computer for firing solutions. I remember we were really Rockin’ and Rollin” with all guns that night. I do also remember the big fear was the possibility of the ship becoming disabled by enemy fire or a mechanical issue. We would have to perform a rescue or tow under the noses of the North Vietnamese ! Thankfully the Providence ran like a Swiss Watch. The old Cleveland class Cruisers were some quality American ships built by “The Greatest Generation”. My fellow FTs were a class bunch of professionals even though we were basically kids at the time.

27 Aug 󈨌 Newport News along with Providence, Rowan and Robison entered into the Lion’s Den to strike at designated targets near Cat Bi Island, North Vietnam. All went as planned until the Task Group started to withdraw. Radar detected several PT boats in attack formation approaching Newport News. Many eight, five and three inch rounds were fired, the first salvo removing one PT from the battle. Soon after a second PT began to burn, and the crew appeared to transfer to the third PT. All the while the PT boats pressed the Newport News closer to the mine field restricting our ability to maneuver. As Newport News made for sea the final PT was seen to be burning in the distance. As stated by crew members of Providence many rounds of hostile fire was received both air burst and water burst. At my GQ station in Forward Gyro, I could hear the clanging of steel against the hull and every so often, the muffled explosion of a close call. Ranges to the PT boats, given by the Lookouts, were often less than one mile, well within torpedo range. Admiral Hollaway, in his U-Tube sea story, gives all the credit for the destruction of the PT boats to Naval Air, but the recording that I made of the attack, described by the lookouts, does not mention the air support until they came to finish off the final burning PT. A Providence officer posted a very descriptive depiction of the entire attack. By the way Rowan supported Newport News, and did a very heroic maneuver when they steamed between the Newport News and the possible torpedo launched from the third PT. The Navy Unit Commendation presented to Newport News gives credit to Her and Rowan for the destruction of one PT and the damage of two others, no mention of Naval Air support. Providence, Rowan, Robison and the Newport News made history that night, but as history goes, very few knew and even less care. Fair Winds and Following Seas.

I was a FTM2 in Weapons Control on top of the missile house. I remember the sounds, while sitting on a radar scope. When we departed the raid, the radar screen went white from all the jamming. Out of range, OIC of weps control sent me to after con to check on the 22 men not answering the sound powered phone circuits. They were all missing. Not a trace of 22 men. I looked around for several minutes, then checked the barbette of the SPQ-5 radar. inside were the missing men, with the flak jackets and helmets arranged to cover them. I returned to WEPS Control to report to the CDR. It released all the tension and we all got a good laugh out of it. NOTE: One Purple Heart earned on this raid. A Marine 2LT got a scratch on his neck when an airburst knocked his night vision mount over on top of director 2. He was embarrassed. NOTE 2: The published maximum firing rate for a dual gun Mk38 Mod 5, 5″ was 15 rounds/gun/minute. The first minute they sent 32 rounds, the second was 31, the third was 30. 9 minutes later, they were still sending 28 rounds/minute. OORAH

I was reading all the previous USS PROVIDENCE,(CLG-6) crewmembers recalls of the NIGHT of MAY 10th, 1972 concerning the raid on the DO SONG PENINSULA @ 0345 HOURS, firing course was 240T a parallel to the longitudinal axis of the CAT BI AIRFIELD.
I was an RM2 assigned to the USS Providence, CLG-6 in San Diego, California @ North Island Naval Air Station. We h ad 1st Fleet Flag onboard. On a Friday Mid watch that ran from 2300hours Friday Night to 0700 Saturday Morning I received over the fleet broadcast communications a Top Secret Message(encrypted) CINCPAC. When the on duty communications officer and I decrypted it, it gave USS Providence, CLG-6 orders to get underway on the following Tuesday Morning for Southeast Asia. Plus the orders for 1st Fleet to disembark to another ship in San Diego Harbor.
Now concerning the events that took place on the evenings of May 8th and May 10th, 1972 is as follows according to my recollections of the events that took place on those nights. On the night of May 8th, 1972 @ approximately 2245hours when I and my radio crew just came on watch the 1MC came on alarming the ship of a man overboard and later changed to a helo crash portside. Rear Admiral R.C. Robinson, Commander of Cruiser Destroyer Force Vietnam and his staff of Captain Taylor and Commander Leaver where killed in the helo crash. The only member of his staff to survive was Commander McCulloch and the entire helicopter crew. That threw everything into concern about the coming/scheduled gun cruiser raid scheduled for May 10th on the Do Song Peninsula. The raid went on as scheduled 0345HOURS and well I know because I again with the crew where again on mid watch in the radio shack and you could definitely hear the 152mm shells from the North Vietnamese hitting the waters around us with a thump. This was my 4th and final deployment to Vietnam. My first deployment to Vietnam I was an HM3 Medical Laboratory Technician was in 1966 on the USS REPOSE’S(AH-16)’s initial deployment right in close on the coast of Vietnam for 13 months, next was in 1968 on the USS BEXAR, (APA/LPA-237), as an HM2, Medical Laboratory Technician, my third tour as an RM2 was aboard the USS OUTAGAMIE COUNTY,( LST-1073 )(for approximately 6 months putting her out commission in Orange, Texas, INACTSHIPFAC, than to the USS PRPOVIDENCE, (CLG-6). Retired from the NAVY on August 31, 1981.
In civilian life after retiring from the NAVY I attend North Dakota State University(NDSU) in Fargo, North Dakota where I received my Registered Nursing Degree. I retired from the US Postal Service as their Occupational Health Nurse for the ,Dakotas District, which includes North and South Dakotas and Northwest Minnesota.

i also remember that night,and the helo rolling off deck and tearing into our sleeping quarters.

I was an RM2 aboard USS Providence, CLG6 that night and I see some exaggerated story telling. I was the one on duty aboard Providence in San Diego, California @ North Island Naval Station in the radio shack that Friday Night as the petty officer of the watch when the ship received a top secret encrypted message from CINCPAC that gave orders to pull out on Tuesday morning for WESPAC. I had TOP SECRET CLEARANCE, so know what and where we were going. I was also on duty in the radio shack the night of May 8th, 1972 when at 2245 Hours Rear Admiral R.C. Robinson and staff of Captain Taylor and Commander Leaver where killed in a helicopter crash off the fantail of the PROVIDENCE. After this there was some hesitation as to whether we would continue with the operation because of this high level loss of life. I was also on duty when we commenced the attack on May 10, 1972, @ 0347 hours on the Do Son Peninsula. This is fact not story telling and I’d been to Vietnam twice before on the USS Repose, AH-16 (1966) and the USS BEXAR, APA/LPA-237 (1968) I was a HM2 Medical Laboratory Technician than. TheDo Song Peninsula Raid was a hairy but short experience. Currently I am a RETIRED RN/BSN OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH NURSE ADMINISTRATOR for the US Postal S ervice’s Dakotas District that encompasses NORTH and SOUTH DAKOTA, NORTHWEST MINNESOTA and Montana. I am retired as I have stated previously and reside here in SIOUX FALLS, SOUTH DAKOTA.

Bill Dunn: SM2 served on CLG 6. Was there that night. Was outside giving info to captain on in coming boats and rounds. Was scary, but we did our jobs. Signal men were always outside on all raids. We saw it all.

I Was on the Providence Got there In Oct 72. I was in 1st Division . Helped with the Decommissioning. I saw her a lot while she was in Bremerton WA Ship yard in Mothballs . I just want to say A friend Gary Ulmer passed away he also served on the Providence From 1971 to 1973 .

I was in the superstructure that night with about seven people. That was my general quarters station. The fact that I was only 18 and really had no idea what was going on was amazing. I was a recorder. What was I supposed to record?
No one knew. I think that a lot of 18 year olds on that ship were in the same boat. (no pun intended) Made a lot of good friends during that tour. Still keep in touch with Wallace from the print shop. John Cochrane sadly passed away quite awhile ago. We were shipmates. That bond never dies.

BT Olsen was there for all too. 1970/1973, remember 6 inch guns firing like machine gun, after event headed to Philippines to rebarrel. Helicopter crash, on duty in boiler room went from full to all stop, be on boiler front for that. Any one remember the six hundred cases of beer and giving a six pack getting in liberty launch in Indian Ocean?

I was in CIC on the surface scope and remember hearing shrapnel bounce off the side of the ship, I didn’t know what it was and asked what it was, my butt hole puckered when they told me.

I was normally 6-on-6-off in the 5″ gun mount, but during the raid I wasn’t and as a PH3 I was taking photos during the raid and pretty sure I have the only photo of the raid which is of the Oklahoma City silouetted by here guns.

In 2376, the Providence saw action in the war against the Borg when the Collective invaded the Alpha Quadrant to assimilate the Federation and acquire an Omega particle. (TNG video game: Armada)

On stardate 54566.1 (July 26th, 2377), the Providence was at Starbase 176 when the sector was invaded by Borg forces. The ship was left derelict, it's crew either killed or assimilated. A task force led by the USS Podjetje recovered the Providence and the other abandoned ships. When the Borg attacked a second time, the rebuilt fleet defeated them.

No final fate is established for this vessel as its name was randomly selected for a Suveren-class vessel by the game software.
