A Message from VADM Moore, commander of Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), highlights the success, accomplishment, and contribution Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard provided to end WWII. It was recognized that Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard continues to stay committed to three characteristics that represent everything we do; coordination, competency, and professionalism.
"On Wednesday [June 6, 2018] I had the honor of attending a Midway Day celebration over on Capitol Hill where we had four surviving members of Midway. Think about that! The first photo was taken with a gentleman who served on USS NAUTILIS, not the nuclear powered one. He did 14 combat patrols and had some fascinating stories about what it was like to have depth charges dropped on you. The second photo is of two gentleman who served on USS ENTERPRISE (CV-6)...note we are getting ready to sign a contract for USS ENTERPRISE (CVN-80)...and USS YORKTOWN (CV-5) - by the way he's wearing a YORKTOWN (CV-10) cap which was the second YORKTOWN after CV-5 was sunk at MIDWAY . The gentleman on ENTERPRISE told stories of being chased down the passageway by Bull Halsey. All the gentleman were in their 90's and were sharp as a tack. It was a true honor to be around them.
It's important to remember our Naval Heritage because it provides context and focus to what we do here each and every day. The Battle of Midway occurred between 4-7 June 1942 some 76 years ago and is arguably the most important battle in our Navy's history. Strategists and scholars consider the engagement around Midway Island the singular engagement of World War II in the Pacific - sinking four Japanese aircraft carriers, one heavy cruiser, and destroying 248 aircraft. Barely six months after the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, Adm. Chester Nimitz's intel team learned of another attack, this time on the island of Midway - named due to its location roughly mid-way between North America and Asia. Adm. Nimitz saw this as an opportunity to surprise the Japanese Fleet and turn the tide in the Pacific.
To win, we needed every available flattop in the Pacific Ocean to be manned and ready for combat operations. However, our aircraft carriers had sustained significant damage during the Battle of Coral Sea. USS YORKTOWN (CV 5) in particular was in bad shape, needing an estimated 90 days to repair. Adm. Nimitz gave Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard 72 HOURS to get YORKTOWN underway.
Faced with a seemingly impossible task, more than 1,400 Pearl Harbor NSY (PHNSY & IMF) workers swarmed YORKTOWN, executed the most critical repairs and returned it to the fight. This past Friday, PEO Carriers hosted its annual Battle of Midway commemoration and had retired Navy Captain Jack Crawford speak. Captain Crawford reported aboard YORKTOWN the day before setting sail to meet the Imperial Japanese Fleet at Midway and he was asked how the shipyard was able to get the carrier back to sea. He said three words, coordination, competency, and professionalism. These same characteristics required today in everything we do."
