  • — L i t e r a t u r e O f f e r e d— The first of the U.S. Navy's newest class of mine counter-measure ship, USS Avenger (MCM-1) was recently commissioned at the yard of her builder, Peterson Builders, Inc. (PBI), in Sturgeon Bay, Wis.

    Mrs. Sybil Bailey Stockdale, the ship's sponsor, who christened the Avenger June 15,1985, attended the ceremonies as an honored guest.

    Her husband, retired U.S. Navy Vice Adm. James B. Stockdale, was the principal speaker at the commissioning.

    Other dignitaries at the commissioning ceremony were: Vice Adm.

    William F. McCauley, USN, Commander, Naval Surface Force, U.S. Atlantic Fleet; Vice Adm.

    William H. Rowden, USN, Commander, Naval Sea Systems Command; Under Secretary of the Navy, H. Lawrence Garret III; Wisconsin Congressman Les Aspin, Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee; Wisconsin Senator Robert Kasten; Sturgeon Bay Supervisor of Shipbuilding, Capt.

    Thomas J. Kile, USN, and PBI president, Ellsworth L. Peterson.

    The Avenger Class MCMs are the Navy's largest wooden ships, measuring 224 feet long, with a 39-foot beam. The Avenger is powered by four 600-hp Waukesha diesel engines with three diesel generators.

    The Avenger displaces 1,300 tons and carries a crew of 81 officers and enlisted men.

    The introduction of the new Avenger Class into the Navy's active fleet will enhance its surface minehunting, minesweeping and mine neutralization capabilities due to the installation of sophisticated mine warfare equipment.
