A view from the catwalk as operations begin. At this time the Kitty Hawk is having an Un-Rep (Underway Replenishment.  

An UnRep is the means that the ship replenishes its supplies.. Refuel and Re-supply 's.  Take a look at the ship to the left. This is the USS Sacramento, AOE-1. The Sacramento has fuel hoses coming to the Kitty Hawk carrying0009768ALT="USS Enterprise 1/700 plastic model Kit photo" HSPACE=10 VSPACE=10 BORDER=2 height=125 width=365 align=RIGHT> jet fuel for the aircraft and diesel fuel for our boilers. At the same time there are usually two helicopters carrying food and sodas from the Sacramento to our flight deck.  Sometimes personnel are transferred by hanging a basket from a cable and pulling them from one ship to the other. 

One thing about the sodas. We drink a lot of sodas. Sodas are also treated like gold much as like in prisons, prisoners use cigarettes for money.  Many of the maintenance shops on the Kitty Hawk would have their own refrigerators where we kept our sodas. It was customary to write your name on a piece of tape and stick it on the soda before you put it in the refrigerator.

If you needed a soda, and you didn't have one in the refrigerator, you many times had to stand in line for twenty minutes just to buy one from the soda machines. This is why we treated them like gold. It was terrible to go and have to stand in line to get a soda.
