This is a true story of a naval voyage to Barrow Alaska in the early 1950s to transport oil to there, before oil was discovered in Alaska. During the voyage there were exciting moments; a near collision with another ship and the cracking of the deck of the LST 1126, leaving a two inch open gap across its deck, with 6,500, 55 gallon barrels of oil below. This caused a delay of two weeks to get the ship repaired. A voyage transporting oil was performed yearly to Alaska. For the crew of LST 1126 it was an excitable but most enjoyable voyage. Numerous places were visited along the way.
