Oriskany 1952

Oriskany 1952: The U.S. Navy aircraft carrier USS Oriskany (CVA-34) moored at Yokosuka, Japan, circa 1952-53. Note the dusting of snow on the flight deck, loaded numerous aircraft of Carrier Air Group 102 (redesignated CVG-12 4 February 1953). A Commencement Bay-class escort carrier is moored alongside and US-built Tacoma-class frigates are visible in the background.

Ship Repair Facility Yokosuka and Detachment Sasebo are responsible for maintaining and repairing the 22 Forward Deployed Naval Forces (FDNF) ships serving in U.S. SEVENTH Fleet and the ships deployed to SEVENTH Fleet AOR from stateside.

As a federal employee at SRF-JRMC Yokosuka, you’ll help operate a medium-sized, full-service, non-nuclear naval shipyard providing modernization, maintenance and repair through depot-level maintenance availabilities (including dry-dockings), Continuous Maintenance (CM), Fleet Technical Assistance (FTA), and emergent/voyage repairs (VR).

The U.S. civil service (USCS) workforce is critical to the daily operations of SRF-JRMC, providing engineering, technical, supervisory, advisory, managerial, financial, security and other services that cannot be delegated to foreign nationals, which comprises the bulk of the SRF workforce. Additionally, USCS and military personnel provide most FTA support.

You’ll find working at an FDNF maintenance activity to be quite challenging, yet most satisfying. The talented, multinational work force in Japan is unique and helps make your Japan tour broader professionally and personally rewarding. The resulting team effort has earned SRF-JRMC an enviable reputation. Working at PSNS&IMF Det, you’ll also reap many benefits working in this unique environment. Globalize your Career!
