ROCK WENT TO THE FAIR AND ACTUALLY TOURED ALL THE FREE EXHIBITS
INCLUDING THE ZODIAC EXHIBIT THOUGH HE WAS OT IMPRESSED AT THE TIME.. LOL

IT WAS THE BIG SEND OFF AT THE NY WORLDS FAIR IN 1964
A BOOST FOR BOTH THE ZODIAC BRAND & SEA WOLF
THE STATEMENTS OF ITS DESIGN
RELIABILITY, RUGGEDNESS, DEPENDABILITY
THE INITIAL PRICE WAS 100+

NOTE THAT THE FIRST  SEA WOLF ISSUE HAD RADIUM DIAL/HANDS

IT WAS THE PERSONAL AQUISIITION BY  THESE GREEN BERET “ADVISORS”, COVERT OPERATIVES AND SUPPORT TROOPS OF THE EARLY 1960’S WHO WOULD PROVE THE RUGGED REPUTATION OF THE ZODIAC SEA WOLF IN THE JUNGLES AND WATERWAYS OF VIETNAM AND MAKE THE SEA WOLF POPULAR AMONG THE THOUSANDS OF TROOPS THAT BEGAN ARRIVING IN 1965 [MARINES].

THE 1969 ZODIAC SEA WOLF WAS AVAILABLE AT MILITARY PX AND ON R&R IN 7 COUNTRIES. THE ZODIAC SEA WOLF WAS UTILIZED BY MANY US, AUSTRALIAN AND KOREAN SOLDIERS; INCLUDING NAVY SEALS AND MEMBERS OF USA UNDERWATER DEMOLITION TEAMS AS WELL AS PILOTS AND GROUND TROOPS.

IN FACT, MUCH OF THE RUGGED REPUTATION OF THE SEA WOLF BY ZODIAC WAS AWARDED BY ITS POPULARITY AMONG US TROOPS IN THE VIETNAM WAR.    

ITS RUGGEDNESS, DEPENDABILITY AND PRICE MADE IS A TOP CHOICE.

THE SEA WOLD WAS NOT A PAMPERED TIME PIECE.. ON THE CONTRARY.. IT IS THE FACT OF ITS DESIGN AND RELIABILITY THAT WON THE SEA WOLF POPULARITY.

ZODIAC

“In order to establish the best hermetic seal possible for the Sea Wolf, the engineers created a special back for the casing, a longer stem sleeve, several new types of gaskets, and a rounded crystal sealed in plastic.    Throw in radium hands & dial for greater visibility and you’ve have a diving watch used by amateurs and professionals, including military members such as the Underwater Demolition Team and US Navy SEALs.”

USS RANGER VIETNAM TO DESERT STORM

IMG_1868.JPG (149705 bytes)

The seventh USS Ranger (CV/CVA-61) is one of four Forrestal-class supercarriers built for the US Navy in the 1950s. Although all four ships of the class were completed with angled decks, Ranger had the distinction of being the first US carrier built from the beginning as an angled deck ship.

Commissioned in 1957, she served extensively in the Pacific, especially the Vietnam War, for which she earned 13 battle stars. Near the end of her career she also served in the Indian Ocean and Persian Gulf.

Ranger appeared on television in The Six Million Dollar Man, Baa Baa Black Sheep and in the films Top Gun, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (standing in for the carrier USS Enterprise), and Flight of the Intruder.

IMG_1849.JPG (172212 bytes)

 

General William Westmoreland, commanding the Military Advisory Command in Vietnam, visited Ranger on 9 March 1965 to confer with Rear Admiral Miller. Ranger continued air strikes on enemy inland targets until 13 April when a fuel line broke, ignited and engulfed her No. 1 main machinery room in flames. The fire was extinguished in little over an hour. There was one fatality. She put into Subic Bay 15 April and sailed on the 20th for Alameda, arriving home on 6 May. She entered the San Francisco Naval Shipyard 13 May and remained there under overhaul until 30 September.

Following refresher training, Ranger departed Alameda on 10 December 1965 to rejoin the 7th Fleet. She and her embarked Carrier Air Wing 14 received the Navy Unit Commendation for exceptionally meritorious service during combat operations in Southeast Asia from 10 January to 6 August 1966.

USS Ranger (CV-61) departing from San Diego

On 21 July 1967, she logged her 88,000th carrier landing. From June until November, Ranger underwent a long and intensive period of training designed to make her fully combat ready.

Attack Carrier Air Wing 2 (CVW-2) embarked on 15 September 1967, with the new A-7 Corsair II jet attack plane and the UH-2C Seasprite rescue helicopter, making Ranger the first carrier to deploy with these powerful new aircraft. From carrier refresher training for CVW-2, Ranger proceeded to fleet exercise “Moon Festival.” From 9 to 16 October, the carrier and her air wing participated in every aspect of a major fleet combat operation.

IMG_1848.JPG (160185 bytes)

Arriving on station 3 December 1967, Ranger commenced another period of sustained combat operations against North Vietnam. During the next five months, her planes hit a wide variety of targets, including ferries, bridges, airfields and military installations. Truck parks, rail facilities, antiaircraft guns and SAM sites were also treated to doses of Air Wing 2’s firepower.

Bob Hope’s Christmas Show came to Ranger in Tonkin Gulf on 21 December. Another welcome break in the intense pace of operations came with a call at Yokosuka during the first week of April. Returning to Yankee Station on 11 April, Ranger again struck objectives in North Vietnam.

At the end of January 1968 USS Pueblo was seized by North Korea. Ranger turned north and proceeded at full speed from the tropical waters off Vietnam to the frigid waters off North Korea. The ship had been on the combat line in Vietnam for one month and was due to for an R&R.

At the conclusion of the North Korea deployment the ship had been at sea for 65 days. The carrier stopped at the small Japanese port of Sasebo for several days, then proceeded back to combat operations.

IMG_1850.JPG (135372 bytes)

She departed Alameda on yet another WestPac deployment in October 1969 as flag ship for Rear Admiral J.C. Donaldson, Commander Carrier Division Three, and Captain J.P. Moorer as commanding officer and remained so employed until 18 May 1970.

During this time the ship spent at least two extended periods on Yankee Station, the longest being 45 days, due to mechanical problems with the carrier that was to relieve her. A pleasant break in the lives of Ranger’s crew came with the arrival of the Bob Hope show on 24 December 1969.

Upon leaving Yankee after one tour and on the way to Sasebo, Japan, Ranger was ordered to stand off the coast of Korea for 3 days due to North Korea forcing down a US C-130 and holding the crew. Initially Ranger was to leave the line on Yankee Station for a week of R&R in Subic Bay while offloading supplies, then to Japan and on to Australia and home.

She was ordered to hold on station and fly the first sorties on Cambodia. Finally leaving Yankee Station, Ranger made a fast 3-day offload in Subic Bay and a two-day port call in Sasebo and back to Alameda BEFORE departing for her sixth WestPac cruise in late October 1970.

On 10 March 1971, Ranger, along with Kitty Hawk (CV-63), set a record of 233 strike sorties for one day in action against North Vietnam

During April, the three carriers assigned to Task Force 77 – Ranger, Kitty Hawk, and Hancock – provided a constant two-carrier posture on Yankee Station.

Hours of employment remained unchanged with one carrier on daylight hours and one on the noon to midnight schedule. Strike emphasis was placed on the interdiction of major Laotian entry corridors to South Vietnam.

 


 

After five months of intensive operations, Ranger called at Hong Kong 5 May 1968 and then steamed for home. There followed a shipyard availability at Puget Sound that ended with Ranger’s departure 29 July for San Francisco.

Three months of leave, upkeep and training culminated in another WestPac deployment 26 October 1968 through 17 May 1969.

On 18 December 1972 Linebacker II operations were initiated when negotiations in the Paris peace talks stalemated. Participating carriers were Ranger, Enterprise (CVN-65), Saratoga (CV-60), Oriskany (CV-34), and America (CV-66).

The Linebacker II operations ended on 29 December when the North Vietnamese returned to the peace table. These operations involved the resumed bombing of North Vietnam above the 20th parallel and was an intensified version of Operation Linebacker.

The reseeding of the mine fields was resumed and concentrated strikes were carried out against surface-to-air missile and antiaircraft artillery sites, enemy army barracks, petroleum storage areas, Haiphong naval and shipyard areas, and railroad and truck stations. Navy tactical air attack sorties under Linebacker II were centered in the coastal areas around Hanoi and Haiphong.

There were 505 Navy sorties in this area during Linebacker II. Between 18 and 22 December the Navy conducted 119 Linebacker II strikes in North Vietnam. Bad weather was the main limiting factor on the number of tactical air strikes flown during Linebacker II.

On 27 January 1973, the Vietnam cease-fire, announced four days earlier, came into effect and Oriskany, America, Enterprise, and Ranger, on Yankee Station, cancelled all combat sorties into North and South Vietnam.

On 19 December 1992, Ranger was relieved on station by Kitty Hawk and began her last journey home.
