USS Oklahoma City CL-91

Oklahoma City
(CL-91; dp. 14,400; 1. 610'1"; b. 66'4"; dr. 24'10"; s. 31.6 k. cpl. 1,426;
a. 126", 12 5", 2840mm., 1020mm.;cl. Cleueland.)

Oklahoma City (CL-91) was laid down 8 December 1942 by the Cramp Shipbuilding Co., Philadelphia, Pa.; launched 20 February 1944; sponsored by Mrs. Anton H. Classen; commissioned 22 December 1944, Capt. C. B. Hunt in comruand.

Following shakedown, Oklahoma City transited the Panama Canal and reported to ComCruPac for duty, arriving Pearl Hsrbor 2 May 1945. She conducted local operations until 22 Msy when she sailed for Ulithi, thence to rendezvous 6 June with Carrier Task Group 38.1 for operations in support of the Okinawa campaign. For the rest of June and into July she screened 3d Fleet carriers during their intensified air operations against Japanese forces. On 18 July she formed a bombardment group with other cruisers and destroyers, then rejoined the carrier task group for continued action against the Japanese home islands. At the end of hostilities she continued to patrol off the coast of Japan and it was not until 10 September after seventy-two days of continuous steaming, that she final~y entered Tokyo Bay. Oklahoma City remained on occupation duty until relieved 30 January 1946 when she departed for the United States. She arrived at San Francisco 14 February where she remained until 15 August when she entered the Mare Island Navy Yard for inactivaticn. She was placed out of commission in reserve 30 June 1947 assigned to the San Francisco Group, U.S. Pacific Reserve Fleet.

On 7 March 1957, Oklahoma City arrived at the Bethlehem Steel Corp. Pacific Coast Yard, San Francisco, where conversion to a guided missile light cruiser commenced 21 May, her hull class)fication and number being changed two days later to CL~. Her conversion completed 31 August 1960 she was towed to Hunter's Point where she recommissioned 7 September, Capt. Ben W. Sarver in command.

During her shakedown training, Oklahoma City became the first combatant unit of the Pacific Fleet to fire a TALOS guided missile sueeessfully. Following shakedown, she partieipated in several major training exercises while serving as flagship for CruDiv 3 and CruDesFlot 9, then departed 1 December for a six month deployment in WestPae. She arrived in Yokosuka, Japan 20 December where six days later she became flagship for Commander, U.S. 7th Fleet. The ship participated in SEATO training operations, received two a~rards for operational excellence, and served as an ambassador of good will to several cities in the Far East. She then returned to Long Beach, California 12 June 1961 and spent the next several months conducting local training operations and upkeep work. On 14 December she entered the Long Beach Naval Shipyard for restricted availability followed by an extensive overhaul.

In early 1964, Oklahoma City began refresher training in Southern California waters to prepare for a lengthy deployment, then departed for Yokosuka where she arrived 7 July to assume her duties again as 7th Fleet flagship. Shortly thereafter, North Vietnamese gunboats attacked U.S. destroyers in the Tonkin Gulf and Oklahoma City quickly began a 25-day alert in the Gulf. Training exercises and operational visits to various ports in the Far East followed, then in June 1965 she began gunfire support missions off Vietnam. When the level of hostilities increased, she began to spend more and more time in the South China Sea and eventually participated in operations "Piranha," "Double Eagle," "Deckhouse IV," and "Hastings II". After serving as 7th Fleet flagship for two and one-half years, Oklahoma City returned to San Francisco Bay Naval Shipyard 15 December 1966 for overhaul. Following her yard period, she began refresher training in the Southern California operating area in July, 1967, and continued those exercises and intermittent ealls to West Coast ports until she deployed again to WestPac 7 November 1968. She arrived at Yokosuka 20 December and into August, 1969, was again contributing to the strength of the 7th Fleet by participating in the varied assignments its units are called on to perform.

Oklahoma City received two battle stars for service in World War II.


USS Oakland (CL-95)

USS Oakland (CL-95), was a modified Atlanta-class light cruiser, the first of a group of four sometimes referred to as the "Oakland class". She was laid down by Bethlehem Steel Co., San Francisco, California on 15 July 1941 launched on 23 October 1942 sponsored by Dr. Aurelia H. Reinhardt and commissioned on 17 July 1943, Captain William K. Phillips in command. She was named for the city of Oakland, California. Like the Atlanta class, the Oakland class was designed as an anti-aircraft cruiser, with a main battery of dual-purpose guns. The Oakland class omitted the wing 5 in (127 mm)/38 cal gun turrets of the Atlanta class.

Oakland sustained three casualties during World War II.

Robert Almquist has fond memories of his time on the USS Oakland during World War II. His home in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin is a testament to that it’s a museum of sorts filled with figurines, military citations and plaques from different war ships.

But one thing is missing for this 95-year-old veteran — a final glimpse of where he spent those critical years of his life. His legs are weak and his memory fading, but Almquist’s dream is to travel 2,000 miles to Oakland, specifically Middle Harbor Shoreline Park, for a look at the USS Oakland’s mast — all that is left of the ship.

“I might have a buddy there too,” he said in an interview. “He’d be 97 or 98. But I think he died.”

Most have. Almquist may be the last of the 800 or so sailors who served on the USS Oakland still above ground. The ship was his home from 1942 to 1946.

The Almquist family has started a GoFundMe page to raise money to bring the World War II Navy veteran to the West Coast, where he hopes also to see a plaque bearing his name at the Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial in La Jolla. As of Thursday, the site had raised $1,310 toward the $2,500 goal.

A teacher at a Wisconsin Rapids elementary school said her class organized a fundraiser and wants to deliver the donation around Veteran’s Day. His son, Simon Almquist, said the money is for travel, lodging, car rental and other expenses.

Growing up around the lakes of Wisconsin, Robert Almquist always wanted to be a sailor. He enlisted in the Navy in 1942 and after boot camp was sent to Treasure Island. He was part of the first crew of the USS Oakland, even though it was not yet commissioned. He recalls taking a train to the Bay Area and a ferry from “Frisco” to Oakland.

The USS Oakland, named for the city, was sponsored by Mills College President Aurelia Henry Reinhardt, and launched Oct. 23, 1942. A light cruiser built by Bethlehem Steel Co. in San Francisco, the Oakland was approximately 542 feet in length and capable of speeds up to 32 knots.

Keith Hedley, who runs the research library at the USS Hornet museum in Alameda, said the ship’s primary role was protect other ships from enemy aircraft.

“It came to be very important in World War II,” Hedley said. Despite its medium-sized guns, “they could put up quite a wall of shrapnel that the Japanese would have to fly through,” he said.

During battle, Almquist said he helped load ammunition to gunners. Otherwise, he was a baker. The four years took him around the Pacific, from Guam to Okinawa. At the war’s end, the vessel was anchored in Tokyo Bay, not far from where the Japanese surrendered aboard the USS Missouri. It had earned nine Battle Stars.

Even though Almquist served 30 years in the Navy, retiring long ago, it’s as if he’s never left the service. A father of six, he has three children who have served in the military, including Simon, now 67.

“I’m pretty proud of it,” he said with a laugh. “I have a granddaughter in the Army. I’m proud of my family.”

Upon leaving the Navy, he worked for 30 years in a Wisconsin paper mill. He likes to joke that he spent “30 years in the Navy, 30 in the mill and 30 in retirement.” His twilight years were filled with reunions with his shipmates. They were once held every couple of years, becoming less frequent as the Oakland crew aged. When the reunions stopped altogether, Almquist wrote letters to the few who remained — “one guy from here, one from Marshfield (Wisc.) and one from Beaver Dam (Wisc.).”

He hasn’t received a letter in some time, he said. “They’re all dead now, I guess.” Locally, Hedley said only one World War II Navy veteran visits the Alameda museum these days.

“If a guy served in an active duty capacity in World War II, he has to be at least 95 and that’s just the 17 and 18 year olds,” Hedley said. “There’s not very many of them left.”

The dream of returning to Oakland became more urgent for Almquist after his his wife, Ruth, died in March, two weeks shy of her 89th birthday.

“He has been thinking about it more heavily ever since,” Simon Almquist said.

The USS Oakland was sold for scrap in 1959. The mast is all that is left for a reunion and the 95-year-old wants his family there with him.

“My legs are getting a little weak. I’ll have to take a walker, but I can still get around,” he said.

Meet the Newest U.S. Navy Combat Ship – The USS Oakland (LCS 24)

Oakland is now the 22nd LCS and the 12th of the Independence-variant ships in the U.S. Navy fleet.

The LCS program was first introduced in 2002 and it focuses on two types of LCS categories, the Freedom variant and the Independence variant. The Independence variant LCS are being built by Austal USA in their Alabama-based shipyard, while the Freedom LCS are manufactured by Lockheed Martin, in Wisconsin.

A littoral combat ship, designed to take part mainly in near-shore operations (hence the name), is described as being &ldquofast and agile&rdquo. And, according to the Navy official presentation, it&rsquos capable of combating various types of threats, including quiet submarines and mines.

The historic Oakland name already has a long tradition within the U.S. Navy. The first ship that was named after the Californian city dates back to 1918 and was used for cargo transport. The second USS Oakland began its career in 1943 and was involved in several important anti-aircraft missions, including ones in Okinawa and Iwo Jima, earning nine battle stars.

With such an interesting history behind it, this &ldquoyoung&rdquo combat ship certainly has to live up to its name.

&ldquoThis ship will play an essential role in carrying out our nation&rsquos future maritime strategy.&rdquo, said LCS program manager Capt. Mike Taylor, when the Oakland was first delivered.

While Oakland will be joining the other 11 Independence LCS, back in San Diego, there are still more ships set up to join the fleet. Four others in this variant are still under construction, namely Mobile (LCS 26), Savannah (LCS 28), Canberra (LCS 30) and Santa Barbara (LCS 32), and three more will begin construction later on.
