As a newly commissioned Midwest Mariner (from Missouri & Kansas), I reported aboard USS Cimarron (AO-22) during mid-March ...

I sensed CIM's uncommon character, even as she was moored at Subic Bay Naval Station to begin her 1967 WestPac Cruise!


Named for a tributary of the Arkansas River, she was the oldest commissioned naval ship in continuous active service!

Both her converted ESSO "sister ships" were commissioned in 1939 ... USS Neosho (AO-23) & USS Platte (AO-24) ...


I didn't yet know what "community connections" these UNderway REPlenishment (UNREP) ships shared.


Also, I didn't understand the role of INTERdependent supply chains to ensure our nation's sustainable well-being!

>> Finding the "easy" route through the Rocky Mountains was a challenge.


This pass on the Cimarron River was not one of the easiest or most used,

but it was used often by those seeking a route to the other side.

My "peer mentors" from our Kansas Environmental Leadership Program (KELP) challenged me to share ALL-WinWIn Re*Cycling of vital "Lessons Learned" from Unknown Midwest Mariners who shared or spent their lives to preserve and protect our "Freedom of Choice" ...


What our KELP Crews rediscovered was an elusive


"MentorshipART of Peace" (MAoP) that surpasses ALL (individual) understanding!


I finally realized CIM's sister ships were named for a Louisiana Purchase Watershed along the Old Santa Fe Trail.

So, which prairie passage Pathfinders influenced these USS Fleet Oiler's naming order from southwest to northeast?

>> SNVM: Fremont was an important figure in Gold Rush history and one of the largest landowners in the Gold Country.

He was also its greatest self-promoting and self-glorifying explorer.


Fremont achieved great wealth and fame, but he died in chronic poverty -- a victim of poor judgment and rash investments. He was enthusiastic but star-crossed. John C. Fremont’s life is a testament to the startling accomplishments and crushing disappointments that many westerners would experience. <<

>> Rivers of North America Series brings a unique perspective to the role great rivers have played in the early development and subsequent settlement of a region and a nation. Each river has its own unique story to tell, it's own geology, geography and history.


Beginning at the headwaters and continuing on their way through majestic landscapes of canyons and valleys, the waters of these great rivers continue on a path created millions of years ago. Young viewers learn about the first settlements, the first European explorers, as well as the ecological IMPACT that comes from the demands upon its waters. <<

Elonka writes:

Yup, I'm proud of Jared! His earlier book The Third Chimpanzee is a fascinating read too, if you get a chance. He goes over the near identical genetic makeup that humans and apes have, and then takes a really close look at the tiny 2% difference. The book analyzes how that miniscule amount could be responsible for all the obvious differences: Music, architecture, language, sexual behaviors, and on and on. Interesting stuff!
