“Home” @ Work: USS MILWAUKEE (AOR-2) Out Replenishing

May 1st, 2010 by xformed

As in “Always Out Replenishing” (AOR). This video was taken in Apr 93, but….it was my life for 2 years…just 16 years before that.

In any case, excellent close ups of the actual stations where “Diesel Fuel, Marine” (DFM), NATO Code F-76, was transferred, as well as the antics crews sometimes went to for a fun while alongside.

    Its always the good times that we remember. Hard work and all that is just part of the job and being part of a team makes even that so much easier. Good video for the archives 🙂

    As a Storyteller that was pointed to your site I enjoyed the info on stuff that happened on ships for background to a story I am thinking of doing and one I have now. It puts a different twist to the stern things I have been told and seen.
