Operation Deep Freeze
March 28, 2015
From 1955 until 1998 U. S. Navy meteorologists have participated in the exploration of Antarctica as part of OPERATION DEEP FREEZE. Most were volunteers in this endeavor; a few were assigned as needed. Some of those also volunteered for more than one tour of duty in Antarctica. Here is some recognition of those personnel. How many AG’s and Meteorological Officers did a tour there?? I have attempted to put together a roster and need your HELP. As of February 2015, at this time the list is of 669 names and there should be many more; the list is available on the www.navalweather.org website for your viewing. [Also see Page 18…Editor] Listing is by Deep Freeze Year. Check it out, if you are not listed, need correction or if you know of anyone that served in Antarctica, please forward this information to me or contact me at the following addresses:
