Carrier Air Wing

 

The typical air wing aboard a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier usually contains three FA-18 squadrons, one S-3 squadron, one EA-6B squadron, one E-2C squadron, and one helicopter squadron. You can find detailed information on each of these aircraft by clicking on the silhouette. That will take you to the Navy Fact File for that particular aircraft.

USS Boxer (CVS-21) transited the Panama Canal and entered the  Caribbean Sea on 24 October 1958, last aircraft carrier to transit the Panama Canal” (Ref. 843).

 

“On 1 November 1958, USS Boxer (CVS-21), former CVA-21 & CV arrived Norfolk, Va., with Captain Irvin L. Dew, "Ike," USNA '33 (last CO as CVS 21), as Commanding Officer, ending her West Coast transfer via the Panama Canal into the Caribbean Sea, the last Aircraft Carrier to do so, steaming through the Eastern Pacific from Naval Air Station, North Island, San Diego, California. operating with the United States Atlantic Command (Atlantic Fleet) under the direction of the 2nd Fleet, steaming through the Atlantic to Norfolk, Va., reuniting with her former home port, her departure on 17 July 1945, when she departed for San Francisco, California; ending her third deployment as a Anti Submarine Warfare (ASW), operating with the Pacific Fleet and tour with the 7th Fleet. Official Naval historical records show: " Amphibious Squadron Ten was established on 22 October 1958 and consisted of Boxer (Flagship), Plymouth Rock LSD-29, Fort Snelling LSD-30, Speigal Grove LSD-32 and Hermitage LSD-34 . The formation of Phibron Ten marked the Navy's designation of a tactical unit of high speed ships as an amphibious assault force capable of transporting troops, boats and helicopters over long distances and launching an amphibious attack by sea and air. There slogan was "By sea, by air anytime, anywhere." Boxer transited the Panama Canal and entered the  Caribbean Sea on 24 October 1958, last aircraft carrier to transit the Panama Canal; making one “WestPac” deployment as a ASW carrier, on her tenthWestPacdeployment operating with the Pacific Fleet and tour with the 7th Fleet, joining up with CTG 7.3 for Bikini atom bomb test series support on her second ASW deployment; redesignated CVS-21 - antisubmarine warfare aircraft carrier on 1 February 1956; made four Combat and two Peace Keeping Cruises during the Korea Conflict/War; received eight battle stars for her service off Korea; making three “WestPacs” as a CVA; reclassified CVA-21 on 1 October 1952 while under going repairs at San Francisco, Calif.; making sixWestPacs” and one NorPac as a CV. Her 14th Foreign Water Fleet Deployment (FWFD) since her commission 16 April 1945, with Captain D. F. Smith in command (14 October to 1 November 1958)” (Ref. 1-Boxer, 8, 72, 76 & 843).

 

“The first permanent Marine Aviation Detachment of 327 men afloat was activated on board USS Boxer (CVS-21) on 10 November 1958 to provide supply, maintenance, and flight deck control functions necessary to support the Marine helicopter squadrons and troops” (Ref. 1-Boxer & 72).

 

 Kenneth Talley has a story. He served and played a major role in the development of the vertical envelopment concept of amphibious warfare and maintaining an over-the-beach assault capability.

 

There are so many stories, that if only the Public Relations Department of the U.S. Navy would honor those who have served aboard U.S. Aircraft Carriers by releasing ship logs, countless books and movies would be the result, creating jobs, after all you got to a have a crew for the movie and a couple training aircraft carriers for movie platforms would create revenue as well.

 

“The fifth Boxer (CVS-21), former CVA-21 & CV, the 21st aircraft carrier of the United States Navy by Hull No. and in order of commission, the 33rd, commissioning on 16 April 1945, Captain D. F. Smith in command, was redesignated as LPH-4, Amphibious Assault Ship on 30 January 1959, under going FRAM rather then SCB SCB modernizations (angled flight deck) during service as CV (FRAM – 31/01/59 to mid June); making one “WestPac” deployment as a ASW carrier, on her tenthWestPacdeployment operating with the Pacific Fleet and tour with the 7th Fleet, joining up with CTG 7.3 for Bikini atom bomb test series support on her second deployment, making her transfer to Norfolk, Va. on her third ASW Carrier deployment; redesignated CVS-21 - antisubmarine warfare aircraft carrier on 1 February 1956; made four Combat and two Peace Keeping Cruises during the Korea Conflict/War; received eight battle stars for her service off Korea; making three “WestPacs” as a CVA; reclassified CVA-21 on 1 October 1952 while under going repairs at San Francisco, Calif.; making sixWestPacs” and one NorPac as a CV; launched on 14 December 1944 by Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Co. Newport News, Virginia, sponsored by Ruth D. Overton (daughter of John H. Overton, Senator from Louisiana); keel was laid down on 13 September 1943 at the Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Co. Newport News, Virginia and was a United States Navy Ticonderoga-class aircraft carrier. Named: Captured British ship in 1813 by USS ENTERPRISE” (Ref. 1-Boxer, 72, 76 & 843).

 

 

USS Boxer (LPH-4) underway, date and location unknown.

USS Boxer (LPH-4) remained with Phibron Ten and played a major role in the development of the vertical envelopment concept of amphibious warfare and maintaining an over-the-beach assault capability. Phibron Ten operated regularly throughout the Caribbean Sea, called at Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Haiti, Jamaica, Dominican Republic and Guantanamo Bay. On occasion the Uss Rankin AKA-130 and Desoto County LST 1171 operated with Phibron Ten” (Ref. 843).

 

 

USS Boxer (LPH-4) underway with assault helicopters ranged on deck, apparently HUS Seahorses forward and HR2S Deuces aft, circa January-February 1959, probably off the coast of Cuba. Embarked units included 3rd Battalion, 8th Marines. Original Caption from AP Wire Service "WILL PUT IN AT GUANTANAMO, CUBA -- This is the USS Boxer which the U.S. Navy said today will put in at Guantanamo, Cuba, this weekend. About 1,500 Marines taking part in an amphibious group training in the Caribbean, will go ashore for rest and recreation. A spokesman said that the shore leave had been scheduled for several months. (U.S. Navy Photo via APWire photo." Presented by Robert Hurst.
