Military Sea Transport Service History (MSTS)
Part 1: Caribbean Defense Command

by Roger Hewlett

The MSTS was an offshoot of the Army Transport service (ATS) and is today known as the Military Sealift Command (MSC). It is the seagoing supply and logistics system for the United STates military involvements worldwide.

Roger Hewlett was onboard many MSTS ships, including P-2 troop ships, C-2 cargo ships, and CV-1 aircraft carriers, as a civilian mariner during the 1958-1962 period in both the atlantic and pacific areas.

A brief history of ATS and MSTS along with some personal movies and acquired historical films and phots will be presented, as well as a brief update on today's MSC.
