I remember the NorthWind, Southwind, Staten Island and Burton Island but I remember them as Coast Guard not Navy.  I remember One of  the Icebreakers came in to fill up our fuel tanks and Ice had not broke up enough and it got stuck and couldn't break the enough ice to get close.  At that time about 30-40 guys from the ship was in our camp having a few drinks and they all got called back to the ship to help pull hose.  Needless to say they were not happy and I assure the  XO was PISSED.   I rode one of them, cant remember which one  back to McMurdo when we closed Hallet for the winter.
