Default Ship (Barracks) at RTC Great Lakes ~ Pictures ~ Info ~

As many of you know, the barracks at Great Lakes are actually called "Ships". They want you to get in the habit of saying "Ship". These are the ship names:
Ship 1 USS Pearl Harbor
Ship 2 USS Reuben James
Ship 3 USS Hopper
Ship 4 USS Arleigh Burke
Ship 5 USS Theodore Roosevelt
Ship 6 USS Constitution
Ship 7 USS Chicago
Ship 9 USS John F Kennedy
Ship 10 USS Enterprise
Ship 11 USS Kearsarge
Ship 12 USS Triton
Ship 13 USS Marvin Shields
Ship 14 USS Arizona
Ship 17 USS Mason



So what do the "Ship" (barracks) look like? Here is a couple pictures of the USS Triton which my son was on:







Here is some history of each..

Ship 02 USS Reuben James - DD-245 Destroyer, Clemson-class. DE-153 Destroyer Escort Buckley class. FFG-57 Guided Missile Frigate. Named for a Boatswains Mate and his heroism against Barbary Pirates. Here is the Wikipedia link to BM Reuben James: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reuben_James . She is in the movie The Hunt for Red October. Here is the link for the USS Reuben James’: http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/s...uben_james.htm
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Reuben_James_(DD-245)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Reuben_James_(FFG-57)

Ship 03 USS Hopper - DDG-70 Guided Missile Destroyer. Arleigh-Burke class. Named for Rear Admiral “Amazing Grace” Hopper. Here is her Wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Hopper_(DDG-70)
What is Rear Admiral Grace Hopper famous for? She is the person that coined the word "Bug" when talking about computers (like my computer program has a bug in it). She was a computer genius.

Ship 04 USS Arleigh Burke - DDG-51 Guided Missile Destroyer. Named for Admiral Arleigh A. Burke. She is the lead ship in the Arleigh Burke class. Here is her Wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Arleigh_Burke_(DDG-51)
Ship 5 USS Theodore Roosevelt - CVN-71 Multi-purpose Aircraft Carrier Nimitz class-active

Ship 6 USS Constitution - To honor her unique historical status she was reclassified to "none" as of 1 September 1975. IX 21 originally. Frigate-First commissioned 1794. Here is a link to the Wikipedia about "Old Ironsides": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Constitution

Ship 7 USS Chicago - There have been four. Three were cruisers CA-14; CA-29; CA-136 and one submarine - SSN-721. Here is a Wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Chicago

Ship 9 USS John F. Kennedy - CVN 67 This one is decommissioned. It is a Kennedy-class supercarrier, lead ship. There is a new one planned for launch in 2019, CVN-79 Ford-class, first steel cut. Here is her Wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_John_F._Kennedy_(CV-67)

Ship 10 Enterprise - There have been eight. The two pictured around the quarterdeck of BLDG 7115 of RTC are CV-6 and CVN-65. Here is a Wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Ent...15)#Facilities

Ship 11 USS Kearsarge - CV-Fleet Aircraft Carrier, CVA-Attack Aircraft Carrier, and CVS-Antisubmarine Aircraft Carrier. #33 each time she was classified. Long hull Essex-class. Decommissioned and scrapped. Here is her Wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Kearsarge_(CV-33)

Ships 12 USS Triton - There have been five. Attack submarine is the third SS-201, the fifth SSRN/SSN-586 this is the current attack submarine-nuclear powered. SS 201 link: http://www.history.navy.mil/danfs/t8/triton-iii.htm . SSRN/SSN-586 link: http://www.history.navy.mil/danfs/t8/triton-v.htm
The first was a tug-1889, here is a link: http://www.history.navy.mil/danfs/t8/triton-i.htm . The second also a tug: http://www.history.navy.mil/danfs/t8/triton-ii.htm . The fourth a steel-hulled diesel powered Coast Guard patrol boat- turned over to the Navy in 1941. Her last number was WMEC-116.

Ship 13 USS Marvin Shields - FF-1066 Knox-class frigate. Named after the only Seabee to win the Medal of Honor, CM3 Marvin Glenn Shields. Link to the USS Marvin Shields: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Marvin_Shields
Link to CM3 Marvin Glenn Shields story: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marvin_Glenn_Shields

Ship 14 Arizona - BB-39. Battleship, Pennsylvania class. This is the one that lies in Pearl Harbor. I had the honor one year to go and stand over her at the memorial site. There was one before her that was destroyed by fire. Here is her Wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Arizona_(BB-39)

*I have taken this information from my search on the internet. Wikipedia and History Navy.mil being my main sources.

Yup, I wonder if my name is still on the wall. We didnt get hall of fame or CNO, we got the third best one so we got to put our names on the wall. I would not change anything about what I did, I loved the military! And it really prepared me for the police academy!
