The United States Maritime Commission (MARCOM) was an independent executive agency of the U.S. federal government that was created by the Merchant Marine Act of 1936, passed by Congress on June 29, 1936, and replaced the United States Shipping Board which had existed since World War I. It was intended to formulate a merchant shipbuilding program to design and build five hundred modern merchant cargo ships to replace the World War I vintage vessels that comprised the bulk of the United States Merchant Marine, and to administer a subsidy system authorized by the Act to offset the cost differential between building in the U.S. and operating ships under the American flag.

The United States Navy (USN) is the naval warfare service branch of the United States Armed Forces and one of the seven uniformed services of the United States.

Collection (1862-1994) containing correspondence, service records, photographic prints, newspapers, newsletters and clippings, scrapbook, publications, pamphlets and other miscellaneous papers relating to the American Civil War, the Spanish American War, World War I and World War II also relating to the U.S. Navy, its ships, stations, and personnel donated by various individuals to the U. S. Naval Memorial Foundation and transferred to its collection at various times arranged in original order.

Biographical/historical information

Historical notes on principal ships and subject matters mentioned in the collection:

USS COLUMBUS (CA-74): Re-commissioned at the beginning of December 1962 after a sustainable overhaul, the Columbus was deployed in August 1964 to the Western Pacific for a cruise that ended in February 1965, just prior to the full-scale U.S. entry into the Vietnam war. The ship was then transferred to the Atlantic Fleet in January 1966 and in October of that year began her first deployment to the Mediterranean Sea. Following the end of that Sixth Fleet tour early in 1967 COLUMBUS operated in the Caribbean and off the U.S. East Coast. She operated again in the Mediterranean in January to July 1968, December 1968 to May 1969, October 1969 to March 1970, and August 1970 to February 1971. The 1970-71 cruise included service during the Jordanian crisis. Columbus conducted her final Sixth Fleet deployment between November 1973 and May 1974. The ship was decommissioned at the end of January 1975, stricken from the Naval Vessel Register in August 1976, and sold for scrapping in August 1977.

USS MISSISSIPPI (BB-41, later AG-128): Built in Newport News, Virginia, the USS MISSISSIPPI was in December 1917. On June 12, 1924, during routine gunnery practice, the ship suffered a turret fire that killed 48 crew members. The Mississippi was one of the ships on the "Good Will" tour of the U.S Fleet during 1925. She also served as the test ship for the Navy's first surface-to-air guided missile, the "Terrier". After nearly 40 years of service, the ship was decommissioned in September 1956 and sold for scrapping.

USS RENVILLE (APA-227): Launched on October 25, 1944, the RENVILLE was commissioned on November 15 of the same year with Captain William W. Ball in command. Involved in the Asiatic-Pacific Theater in World War II, the ship was decommissioned on June 30, 1949, in Vallejo, California. The RENVILLE was re-commissioned on January 5, 1952 and served as part of the Occupation and China service in the Far East. The Renville went on to serve in both the Korean and Vietnam War, before it was decommissioned for good on April 23, 1968.

USS SIBONEY (ID-2999): Originally launched in August 1917 as the S.S. ORIENTE, the SIBONEY gained its name in February of 1918. Involved in World War I, the transport ship made six-round trip voyages from the U.S to France supplying troops. And when the Armistice of WWI came, the SIBONEY made an additional ten trips bringing troops back to the United States. In September of 1919, the ship was decommissioned and given to the U.S. Army, where it spent time as a mail steamship, an army transport, and an army hospital ship. The ship was scrapped in 1957.

USS TENNESEE (BB-43): Commissioned in June 1920 and built in at the New York Navy Ship Yard. The USS TENNESSEE was one of the eight ships attacked at Pearl Harbor, December 7th, 1941 and later provided support to the Iwo Jima operation in February and Mary of 1945. The ship was decommissioned February 1947 and sold for scrapping in July 1959.

Navy Day: The first Navy Day was created by The Navy League for the United States in 1922. The date was selected to honor the birth date of President Theodore Roosevelt who had been the Assistant Secretary of the Navy and as such a strong proponent of the Navy. In addition, October 27 was the anniversary of a 1775 report issued by a special committee of the Continental Congress favoring the purchase of merchant ships as the foundation of an American Navy. Navy Day was last observed on Oct. 27, 1949.

WAVES: Beginning in August 1942, WAVES, or Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service" provided a position for women to join the efforts of World War II. While it took some creative tactics to get it passed through congress, President Roosevelt signed the bill into law on July 30, 1942. Women served not only in traditionally female roles, but also duties in the aviation community, medical professions, communications, intelligence, science and technology offices.

Purna Tugas [ sunting | sunting sumber ]

Pada tahun 1967 ia dipersiapkan untuk penonaktifan. Ditransfer ke Administrasi Maritim (MARAD) 23 April 1968, ia bergabung dengan Armada Pertahanan Cadangan Nasional, Suisun Bay, California. Dia digunakan kembali sebagai pengangkut amfibi (LPA-227) pada tanggal 1 Januari 1969. Ia ditabrak Kapal Angkatan Laut Register pada 1 September 1976 dan dibuang oleh MARAD pada tanggal 19 Februari 1982. Tempat pembuangan terakhirnya tidak diketahui.

Mengenai penempatan USS Renville, APA -227. Sebuah surat dari Mr Shawn Ireland, MARAD, Program Pembuangan Kapal, tanggal 19 Maret 2007.

"Saya bisa menemukan beberapa informasi tambahan mengenai kapal dan-kapal untuk transaksi (pembuangan itu). Program Pertukaran Barter disahkan oleh Kongres untuk memungkinkan MARAD menambah kapal untuk Armada Pertahanan Cadangan Nasional (NRDF), yang menurut pemiliknya, telah menjadi usang secara ekonomi, tetapi masih bisa beroperasi dan bisa digunakan NDRF sebagai alat angkut. Kapal-kapal yang ditukar-tambah harus dibuat di Amerika Serikat dan harus belum dibukukan di bawah bendera asing. Program ini memungkinkan kapal-kapal berbendera AS yang secara ekonomi telah usang untuk ditukar dengan kapal-kapal yang lebih tua di NDRF yang dijadwalkan untuk dipreteli. Kapal-kapal yang telah dicoret dari daftar NDRF harus dibatalkan dan tidak dapat digunakan untuk operasi.

MARAD, Farrell Lines Inc., dan C.W. Enterprises and Investments Inc. menandatangani perjanjian pada tanggal 19 Februari 1982, yang terdiri dari berikut ini. 1. Farrell Lines akan menukar kapal AMBASSADOR dengan( 4 ) kapal usang NDRF, yaitu BEXAR (LPA-237), Renville (APA-227), NAVARRO (LPA-215), dan Bollinger (LPA-234). 2 . Kontrak MA-10708 antara MARAD, Farrell Lines Inc., dan C.W. Enterprises and Investments Inc. memindahkan kepemilikan kapal untuk Farrell dan kemudian segera ke C.W. Enterprises semata-mata dengan tujuan mepreteli kapal di Taiwan atau Korea Selatan. Kontrak ini secara jelas menyatakan bahwa kapal-kapal tersebut harus dihancurkan. C.W. Enterprises and Investments Inc. beraksi sebagai makelar, yang pada gilirannya akan menjual kapal untuk dipreteli kepada penawar tertinggi di Taiwan atau Korea Selatan. Saya yakin Renville, bersama dengan tiga kapal lainnya dipreteli Taiwan atau Korea Selatan."
