The Nimitz-class carrier is at the forefront of the Navy's effort to maintain peace in a volatile world. USS Abraham Lincoln has continued that tradition since commis- sioning in 1989. This book documents the mighty warshipslune to December 1993 deployment to the Western Pa- cific, the Arabian Gulf and the lndian Ocean -- Lincoln's second major deployment. Whether conducting exercises with the lapa- nese in the South China Sea, enforcing the No-Fly Zone over Southern Iraq or making top speed to- ward the coast of Somalia, USS Abraham Lincoln continued to earn the nickname, "The Legend." The sailors and Marines who served aboard Lincoln during the carriers 1993 overseas deploy- ment proved once again that they are fully capable of the requirements of the Navy's new goals of coastal region operations and joint service missions. Ultimately, each sailor and Marine who served with the Lincoln during her deployment earned the credit for ensuring that the carriers mission was successful. As the warship returned to her homeport of Alameda, Ca. on December 15, those family mem- bers and friends who had gathered to greet their sailors were justifiably proud of what had been accomplished. Each crew member was a part of that Legend on which they had served.

We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all oar exploring 0 Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time --Prom 'Pour Quartetsf by T. S. Eliot The history of Naval aviation had its begin- nings nearly a century ago with Professor Samuel P. Langley's pioneering efforts to develop an airplane, or "aerodrome." Although his craft never flew, Lan- gley drew the attention of Assistant Secretary of the Navy Theodore Roosevelt -- four years before the Wright Brothers' flight at Kitty Hawk. In 1910 a Curtiss pusher plane was launched from the cruiser Birmingham. Two months later Eugene Ely, that plane's pilot, landed his craft on a platform erected on the stern of the cruiser Pennsyl- vania in San Francisco Bay. Ely's feat was the first arrested landing, snagging cables stretched across the deck and anchored with 50-pound bags. After the first World War, the Navy converted the coal-carrying ship Jupiter and two battle cruisers into aircraft carriers. Iupiter was renamed Langley and used for research and development. The two cruisers became the first true aircraft carriers, Lex- ington and Saratoga. More carriers followed: Ranger, Wasp and Hornet. The Essex-class carrier followed, and lasted until well beyond World War II. In the 1950's, USS Forrestal became the first true supercarrier. The wor1d's first nuclear-powered carrier, USS Enterprise, was commissioned in 1961. USS Abraham Lincoln is the N avy's fifth N imitz-class carrier, displacing well over 95,000 tons. The ship was commissioned on November 11, 1989, and takes its motto, "Shall Not Perish," from President Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. The Lincoln Legend begins with the commissioning ofUSS Abraham Lincoln tCVN72J in 1989. It continues with Lincoln 's second major overseas deployment. I x A Abraham Lincoln President Lincoln seeks a better Navy... The report of the Secretary of the Navy presents in detail the operations of that branch of the service, the activity and energy which have characterized its administration, and the results of measures to increase its efficiency and power. Such have been the additions, -by construction and purchase, that it may almost be said a navy has been created and brought into service since our difficul- ties commenced. Besides blockading our extensive coast, squadrons larger than ever before assembled under our flagi have been put afloat and performed deeds which have increase our naval renown. I would invite special attention to the recommendation of the Secretary for a more perfect organization of the navy by introducing additional grades in the service. --Abraham Lincoln, Annual Message to Congress, December 3, 1861 The naval force of the United States consists at this time of five hundred and eicghty-eight vessels, completed and in the course of completion, an of these seventy-five are iron-clad or armored steamers. The events of the war give an increased interest and imriprtance to the navy which will probably extend beyond the war itse . The armored vessels in our navy completed and in service, or which are under contract and approaching com letion, are believed to exceed in number those of any other power. gut while these may be relied upon for harbor defence and coast service, others of greater strength and capacity will be necessary for cruising purposes, and to maintain our rightful position on the ocean. --Abraham Lincoln, Annual Message to Congress, December 8, 1863 Nor must Uncle Sam's Web-feet be forgotten. At all the watery margins they have been present. Not only on the deep sea, the broad bay, and the rapid river, but also Lap the narrow mu dy bayou, and mlihereverkthe ground was a little amp, they have been, and made t eir trac s. --Abraham Lincoln, in a letter to James C. Conkling, August 26, 1863 A statue of USS Abraham Lincoln 's namesake looks solemnly out from the shadows of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. gi '-A ,-... uf "Al Q.-. .gg I 04114- xx -nh USS Abraham Lincoln The Legend Continues Aircraft carriers and their embarked air wings are the most capable ships at sea and form the nucleus of our carrier battle groups. An air wing is composed of fighter, attack, airborne early warning, electronic warfare, anti-submarine and logistics aircraft. These modern, long-range forces are capable of striking airborne, surface or sub-surface targets at sea, as well as targets ashore deep in an enemy's homeland. The aircraft carrier is essential to achieving and maintaining sea control. Not every mission requires a carrier -- or a carrier battle group -- but there are certain events or crises when only a carrier can do the job. --The U.S. Navy Policy Book Power projection from the sea means bombs, missiles, shells, bullets, and bayonets. When Marines go ashore, naval aviation aboard aircraft carriers and -- if required -- land-based expeditionary aircraft will provide them sustained, high-volume tactical air support ashore to extend the landward reach of our littoral operations. Rugged naval aircraft are well suited for expeditionary airfield operations. These capabilities -- the ability to generate high-intensity power projection from the decks of our carriers and expeditionary airfields -- are critical. They must continue to be suffi- ciently available and ready to contribute to joint warfare and decisive victory. Cur carrier and cruise missile firepower can also operate indepen- dently to provide quick, retaliatory strike capability short of putting forces ashore. Remaining ready indefinitely to strike, this potential force from the sea is a critical tool for diplomacy and influence. The mere arrival of naval strike forces into an area of heightened U.S. interest sends a clear signal. --Excerpt from the Navy White Paper: "From The Sea" And now the old ships and their men are gone, the new ships and the new men, many of them bearing the old auspicious names,,have taken up their watch on the stern and impartial sea, which offers no opportunities but to those who know how to grasp them with a ready hand and an undaunted heart. --Ioseph Conrad A star-Spangled, decorative emblem with President Abraham Lincoln 's silhouette hangs on the bow ofhis namesake ship, USS Abraham Lincoln, daring the carrier 's christening ceremony, held February 13, 1988. F -2, 2 I i 5 Q vs - T vs Z USS Abraham Lincoln QCVN 725 Command History USS Abraham Lincoln CCVN 723 is a member of the Nimitz class of aircraft carriers, which are the world's largest warships. Displacing nearly 100,000 tons, it is home to more than 5,500 sailors and Marines, as well as approximately 80 combat and support aircraft. The ship was named in honor of the nation's sixteenth president, Abraham Lincoln, and is the second ship of the line to bear the name. USS Abraham Lincoln is the Navy's fifth N imitz-class aircraft carrier and was built at a cost of more than S3 billion. The ship's keel was laid on Nov. 3, 1984, at Newport News, Va. Four years later, the ship was christened and began a series of performance trials leading up to commissioning on Nov. 11, 1989, in Norfolk, Va. After completing shakedown and acceptance trials, the carrier de- parted Norfolk in September 1990, to complete an inter-fleet transfer from the Atlantic to Pacific Fleet, and eventual arrival in her new homeport of Alameda, Calif. To change fleets, the ship completed an "around the Horn" transit of South America and participated in multilateral training exercises with the navies and air forces of several South American countries, including Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Uruguay. These highly successful operations, involving both air and surface units, were significant for their complexity and unique professional training, and firmly established USS Abraham Lincoln's reputa- tion for excellence. In January 1991, the ship began accelerated workups to deploy in response to Operation Desert Shield X Desert Storm. Over the next four months the ship completed Advanced Training Assessment CATAD and Battle Group Exercise CBGEJ training in preparation for her first overseas deployment. On May 28, 1991, the carrier set sail for its maiden Western Pacific deployment, nearly four months ahead of its original deployment date. While en route to the Indian Ocean, the ship was diverted to support evacuation operations in the Philippines. The operation -- entitled Operation Fiery Vigil -- would become the largest peacetime evacuation of active-duty military and family members in history. USS Abraham Lincoln led a 23-ship armada which sealifted nearly 20,000 evacuees from the naval station. In two trips, the ship moved nearly 4,500 people from the Subic Bay Naval Station to Cebu Island, Philippines. With Operation Fiery Vigil complete, the carrier took up station in the Arabian Gulf in support of allied and U.S. troops remaining in the region for Operation Desert Storm. USS Abraham Lincoln's air wing, CVW-11, provided near continuous combat air patrol, reconnaissance and support air operations over Kuwait and Iraq. The carrier remained in the Gulf for over three months, on alert for any contingencies. The ship served as the command ship for all naval forces operating in the region. After spending much of early 1992 in a Selected Restricted Availabil- ity CSRAD at Naval Air Station Alameda, the ship set out in the latter part of the year on work-ups for a second Western Pacific deployment. Once again, the ship and air wing completed carrier qualifications, a Battle Group Exercise CBGED, and numerous other operations with exemplary results, preparing both for deployment on Iune 15, 1993. After a port visit to Hong Kong, the carrier returned to the Arabian Gulf in support of Operation Southern Watch, the U.N. sanctioned enforcement of a "no fly" zone over southern Iraq. The ship made two port calls to the United Arab Emirates, via the port city of Iebel Ali. After its third month of deployment, USS Abraham Lincoln was called to duty off the coast of Somalia, making a high speed run from the Arabian Gulf to the shores of eastern Africa, in support of Operation Continue Hope. Aircraft from CVW-11 conducted extensive reconnaisance overflights of Somalia, as the carrier remained on station for three weeks. In November 1993, USS Abraham Lincoln sailed south of the Equator for its first port visit to Perth, Western Australia. Steaming north, the ship crossed the Equator for the second time, and headed toward Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The carrier participated in Pearl Harbor Day ceremonies Dec. 7, and departed for Alameda with Tigers on board on Dec. 8, arriving in the Bay Area on December 15.

V. i 5 Communication Is The Key lust as a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, so a ship's integrity is determined by the strength of its chain of command. Individuals Within that chain communicate up and down its length, passing vital information from the very top levels to the lowest decks. The following pages introduce the chain of command during Lincoln's WestPac '93 deploy- ment. These Navy men, who have been to sea many times before, have a commitment to communication that is the essential ingredient to making a Navy chain of command work to its greatest potential. The top echelon of Lincoln 's chain of command meets during a lighthearted morning staff meeting. CI-'rom left: Rear Adm. Dantone, Commander, Carrier Group THREE, Capt.

Several small at-sea periods are conducted to allow personnel new to the carrier to get their sea legs, to learn about safety and firefighting, to learn how to get around what amounts to a small city, and to get a taste of the mission of a carrier on deploy- ment. The focus is on training, maintenance, and demonstrating readiness to the public. Lincoln participated in several exercises, training cycles and demonstrations. These "workups" and exercises presented the Lincoln crew with challenges similar to what they would face during their six-month overseas deployment. With the passing of each evolution, crew members were able to measure the warship's readi- ness to meet the requirements of their upcoming mission to the Western Pacific, Arabian Gulf and Indian Ocean regions. The island portion of USS Abraham Lincoln is honeycombed with scajjfolding during the 1992 Selected Restricted Availability CSRA2. l mi,-1 r .

W -f V, :L ' A Port Called 'Home' The San Francisco Bay Area has many quali- ties admired by Lincoln sailors who are homeported there. The Golden Gate Bridge is a wonder of style and grace, and it is often given a tremendous assist by Nature, with rolling fog, stunning sunsets, brisk wind and whitecapped water. The city of San Francisco has its own colorful characteristics, whether it's the steep hills, the period architecture, its many splendid restaurants or the dramatic skyline that always sticks in the memory. Riding a cable car in San Francisco is like nothing else on the planet. Cn colder, windier weekends, a side-trip to the foothills above Berkeley presents a warmer alter- native. The many shops and folk culture of Berkeley remain as distinctive as they were in the sixties, when the counterculture ruled. South, toward San lose, the many communi- ties that encircle the Bay reflect the diverse lifestyles and varied interests of their residents. Oakland is the gateway to getting anywhere for a sailor on liberty. From transit buses to BART, seeing the sights or getting to work is a breeze. Most importantly, for sailors who work aboard Lincoln, the Bay Area includes Alameda, which is the place they call "Home." The aircraft carriers USS Abraham Lincoln and USS Carl Vinson are moored inport Alameda on june 15, 1993. y Right: N ..4. H ' 'f .,: ,,I, I , V ff ' ."fr lm 11. lu-- UNQ Hfhff' Xf'rr.'

In October 1992, Lincoln embarked family and friends for a one-day excursion off the coast of Northern California to provide them with a close-up of what their sailors do aboard the carrier on a daily basis. Later that month, Lincoln participated in Fleet Week, a celebration sponsored by the city of San Francisco that demonstrated the concept of "sea poWer" in a big Way. During both excursions, as the flotilla steamed beneath the Golden Gate, ship visitors and news media gained insight into the ever-changing mission of the Navy. Left: Lincoln steams beneath the Golden Gate Bridge as the warship participates in Fleet Week.

The men who have sailed out of the city's protected Waters into the Wide Pacific have inevitably left behind friends and loved ones to answer the call of the sea -- and the call to duty. USS Abraham Lincoln edged from the pier on the morning of Iune 15, passed through the magnificent Golden Gate, and steamed westward on her second major overseas deployment. On the pier at Alameda stood those who did not Want their sailors to leave home. Yet they understood the responsibilities of the men who set sail, and of the necessary hardships of a life at sea. And they wished us Well... USS Abraham Lincoln departs on its second Western Pacific deploy- ment, as family and friends bid them farewell. 1 x ,, Q .

Displacing nearly 100,000 tons, Lincoln is home to more than 5,500 sailors and Marines, as well as approximately 80 combat and support aircraft. From its 4.5 acre flight deck, the ship can quickly launch and recover the world's most mod- ern and sophisticated aircraft, operating with other elements of the U.S. armed forces, as well as those of allied nations. For the Lincoln sailor, deployment for six months at a time means long hours, hard work and separation from family and friends. Two troubled regions of the world felt the presence of the Lincoln Battle Group. From Iuly 24 until early October, the carrier patrolled the waters of the Arabian Gulf, enforcing the U.N. no-fly zone over Southern Iraq. During the month of October, Lincoln responded to the call of Operation Con- tinue Hope, taking up station off the coast of Somalia. Both missions demonstrated Lincoln's ability to provide irreplaceable assets in a regional campaign. Ports of call were Hong Kong, Iebel Ali, Perth and Pearl Harbor. Two steel beach picnics, a "crossing the line" ceremony, a USO show, a "beer day" and a Tiger Cruise were also a part of the six- month journey. USS Abraham Lincoln fCVN72j transits thelnclian Ocean athigh speed, enroute to Somalia during the carrier's 1993 deployment. V,-u""?'7 J' V' ', 4 -,-ef. 5, .vm -11,22 fu 'J I .ff 5 ff? -4331 ... '., '- From The Sea The SaiIor's Life At Sea Whatever missions, whatever policies, what- ever hot spots, whatever strategy -- the measure of USS Abraham Lincoln's success while on deploy- ment is determined daily by the toil of the crew. Much is routine aboard a carrier on deploy- ment, yet without the day-to-day achievements of the airman, the seaman and the fireman, the Navy's big picture cannot be framed. Lincoln sailors work especially hard during a deployment -- and yet the routine stuff gets done as well. From a seaman recruit standing lookout watch to an aircrewman checking over a Tomcat, from a cook whipping mashed potatoes to a journal- ist on the evening newsp from a seaman securing a line to a petty officer mustering the troops -- vital work was accomplished every day the Lincoln was on deployment. All this industry ensures that from the deckplates to the top of the ship's mast, Lincoln was maintained at its highest condition of readiness from the time it got underway from the pier at Naval Air Station Alameda to the time it arrived home from deployment. When a sailor lined up at the cash machine inport Hong Kong or Australia, he could rest assured that his pay was the result of good old hard work, sometimes very long hours of it.

Navy ship presents itself, most people jump at the chance. When that visit is to a N imitz-class aircraft carrier, the response is overwhelming. The Public Affairs effort aboard Lincoln which plans and coordinates visits remains in full swing even when the ship deploys over- seas. By far, the most significant visits to Lin- coln overseas are those by Distinguished Visi- tors, those movers and shakers whose tour aboard a Navy carrier is one of prominence, pomp and circumstance. Lincoln's Distinguished Visitor Program helps to present the Navy and its mission to VIP's around the world who are in a position to take a positive impression of our role back to their own powerful arenas, and thus provide a favorable view of American military readiness worldwide.

The island city is one of the busiest ports in the world, its great harbor crowded with ships of many nationalities. Liberal amounts of tourism and trade over the years have made it "The Pearl of the Orient" -- exotic, mysterious and busy. Sailors aboard ships entering the harbor have a sweeping view of Hong Kong huddled against the emerald mass of Victoria Peak, of rapidly-expand- ing Kowloon -- Hong Kong's sister city, across the harbor -- and of the New Territories and Communist China in the distance. lt is no small concern that this British Crown Colony will return to the hands of China's govern- ment in 1997, with Britain turning over the city after the contractual agreement expires. From Tiger Balm Gardens to the Peak Tram, from exotic floating restaurants to amusement parks, from the traditional Star Company ferries to the latest Boeing hydrofoils -- Hong Kong is one of the Far East's most hospitable liberty ports. The landmark Star Perry Company plies the waters of HongKongHarbonfenyingpassengersfromI-IongKong to Kowloon.

As Lincoln steamed the still-dangerous wa- ters of the Gulf, aircraft from Carrier Air Wing Eleven flew patrols over Southern Iraq, helping to enforce the United Nations' "N o-Fly Zone" over that country. Pilot-operated cameras and TARPS equip- ment mounted on aircraft, launched from Lincoln's flight deck, constantly brought back pictures -- not only of Southern Iraq, but of a war-ravaged Kuwait. On board Lincoln, photographers from the carrier's photo lab processed and printed hundreds of thousands of individual pictures of the former war zone. Some of the photographic record is unclassi- fied and is sampled on the following pages. This lilllffliiiai' uw of USS Abraham Lincoln was taken as the I rarrifvv' i inf waters of the northern Arabian Gulf during 3 Oparw? , Watch. 1 Above: A TARPS-vquippvd F-14 Tomcalfrom VF-213 ri X3 gtg IKM .ff X , swath Q- ,- 'Wan . . . - ' thern con ucts a recon nazsunce mzsszon over Iraq durzng Operation S011 Q ln 5 .

MA.- An Oasis In The Desert The industrial port of Iebel Ali offered a tremendously large berth for USS Abraham Lincoln during two port calls to the United Arab Emirates. A tent oasis was set up pierside to provide the crew with ready access to pizza, burgers and bever- ages. The city of Dubai was a short bus ride away from the pier. First stop was always the busy Metropolitan Hotel, a polished and comfortable intersection for Lincoln sailors while on liberty. Buses for various locations around Dubai departed every few min- utes. Mercedes brand taxi cabs were available as well, providing one negotiated the fare beforehand and didn't mind traveling at the speed of light on the freeway. The warm and hospitable city of Dubai was a cultural smorgasbord, with sights and sounds of the Arab world. A walk around the city took the visiting sailor into narrow streets where rugs, swords, cas- sette tapes, tapestries and perfumes could be pur- chased cheaply. As the sun was setting, the Islamic call to prayer drifted from tall, white mosques into the still, hot air. Perhaps the most stunning sight to Ameri- cans was the ostentatious display of gold for sale in the souks. The gleaming metal could be found every- where and in every size, from intricate bracelets to a four foot tall -- solid gold -- horse's head. USS Abraham Lincoln rnoors pierside in Iebel Ali, United Arab Emirates. -'L 4 Q., . -J F 9 3 5 a 'M U .wr ,Uv 'a' if 4 ,xu , 4 lik ,..,,,3. 1, ,QL -S-'.

U . gin in ff' peration Continue Hope l s l l 1 -f Al fd, ,sgx ' Joint Power Projection From Somalia's Coastline Events in Somalia were deteriorating rapidly and something needed to be done. One of the things that the N avy's new strat- egy, "From The Sea," emphasizes is that naval vessels be placed in the best position for projection of power ashore. This provides force dominance of littoral areas such as the coastline of Somalia. USS Abraham Lincoln was in the Arabian Gulf, conducting flight operations in support of Operation Southern Watch. During the first week in October, the carrier answered the Pentagon's call to a new mission off Somalia's coast with dispatch, cancelling a scheduled port visit to Iebel Ali, United Arab Emirates in the process. During a high-speed transit out of the Gulf and across the Indian Ocean, the ship and airwing made plans for the new littoral mission off the eastern coast of Africa. The ship's high speed run left a wake of roiling water all the way to the horizon. Ioint operations began shortly thereafter, un- der the watchwords, "Operation Continue Hope." The mission was a combined operation of U.N. forces already on the ground in Somalia, the Lincoln Battle Group and amphibious ready groups sent to the area. Lincoln remained on station off the coast for three weeks, her planes providing dominance over Somalian skies and conducting photo reconnaisance for the mission.

Ati 'W' Fun In The Sun On October 30, ship's crew, airwing and staff took time out to enjoy a picnic beneath the equator's furnace-like sun. After several weeks of supporting operations in Somalia, the crew was ready for a break. Or two... With Captain N ibe's announcement the night before Cabout the possibility of going to Australiab on everybody's mind, plans were quickly made to hold the traditional recreational event. That morning volleyball nets went up in record time, as did barbecue grills and the band- stand. Frisbees, golfballs, footballs, volleyballs and a kite all took to the air beneath the blue skies. As the bands turned on their amps and mikes for the talent contest 5 as the long line of hungry sailors wound its way to the tables filled with grilled steaks, burgers and chicken, and as sailors in makeshift swimming pools turned slowly into prunes -- many of the tensions of a long at-sea period drained away. Sailors soak up some sun while staying cool in their classy pool . The recreation was part ofLihcoln 's Steel Beach picnic. Q30 .,- e 1 lg A ' . , . . v J - .Y '39, 1 ' " '- -- A.

Australia may have been a far cry from home, but Aussies had every intention of making the Lincoln feel at home. Sailors took advantage of an Officers' party and an All Hands celebration where many of the locals played host. Many took advantage of a program called 'Dial a Sailor' Where Aussie families took crewmembers into their homes for din- ner and socializing. Outgoing, hospitable and wholesome describe the locals of Fremantle and Perth. Australia offered many recreational and leisure activities for its seafaring guests. F rom sunbathing to sky-diving, from sailing excursions to horseback riding, from art ex- hibits to extraordinary cuisine -- there was too much to pack into four days of liberty. It was difficult leaving such a utopia, but all were ready to face the days at sea that would lead them all home. A Lincoln sailor enjoys a splendid view of Perth with his Aussie friend .

Pollywogs, or those who had not ventured over the equator before, were initiated as "shellbacks" through a ceremony called Crossing the Line. A pollywog is another name for "tadpole," or young frog -- who is new to life in the briney deep - - while a "shellback" is one who, like the lobster, has developed a "tougher skin" by previously enduring long at-sea periods. The ceremony is one of the oldest traditions of sea-going life, one which "tests" a new sailor's ability to deal with the hardships of life at sea. Lincoln's shellbacks had the challenging task of cleansing the ship of all slimy pollywogs. At 5 a.m., shellbacks helped their pollywog shipmates dress appropriately for the occasion: initiates put all clothes on backwards and then wore their under- wear on the outside of everything. After a hearty, 'green' breakfast served on the mess decks, polly- wogs were ready for the ceremony ahead of them. They were led through the hangar bays enroute to the flight deck, making the journey on hands and knees. Upon making it to the flight deck, pollywogs were sent to crawl through an obstacle course of food baths and garbage chutes. In the end, pollywogs were encouraged to immerse themselves in a tank full of juice and punch, so that, at last, they could attest to finally having become shellbacks! King Neptune and Davy Iones visit Lincoln 's crew to cleanse the carrier of all pollywogs who have entered their realm. , 4 inf-Wg I rt. 1 w E. i ii x 142 A ' Shellbacks 1 ,nv J,-' Q4 ,1-"3 1 -Q Y:-' M- Y! 4' 2 L .W a - , 'bmi- 5 1 ' . -...sur .N 'L -. . f?'-it-af: . .

USS Abraham LincolnCCVN-725 spent its last inport period of the deployment in Pearl Harbor. A sunset review ceremony was conducted by mem- bers of Lincoln's Marine Detachment on the flight deck Dec. 7, to honor the sailors who died aboard the battleship USS Arizona during the Iapanese attack. Liberty was especially worthwhile in Ha- waii, and Lincoln sailors took advantage of the sights and sounds offered up by America's 50th state. The blue skies and tropical weather of the island of Gahu make for a special kind of liberty, especially because Hawaii is as American as apple pie. Here McDonalds hamburgers taste like they should, so the sailor is straight-away reacquainted with the customs he left behind six months earlier. Friends and relatives of many Lincoln sailors met the ship in Pearl Harbor and rode back to Alameda during the ship's Tiger Cruise. USS Abraham Lincoln enters Pearl Harbor, rendering honors as the carrier passes by the Arizona Memorial. 'ff .nb ...Q ,-in ,QM 'Q' It ... .- lx., . I 'JT -- 5-'F'-EEF!!

Lincoln's Tiger Cruise left the planning boards and invitations were sent out long before the ship's arrival in Pearl Harbor. The event was made possible by the discovery that Lincoln's deep draft would not prevent it from visiting 0ahu's famous harbor. Crew members brought friends and family members on board Lincoln to experience the life of a sailor at sea during the transit from Pearl to Alameda, Lincoln's home port. Tigers experienced many shipboard evolu- tions and activities during that last week of Lincoln's deployment. They were each given their own PQS booklet to help them gain qualifications in damage control and ship knowledge. Tigers were treated to an air show performed by Lincoln's own Carrier Air Wing Eleven, experi- enced a General Quarters drill held especially for them and enjoyed a "steel beach" picnic with the crew. Getting all the Tigers together in one place for a documentary photo session prooes to be "do-able." Jtix P A , ' , h XA- x s X M? 61. X I ! !x ., , sg Q A . , .

Yet often he can be found at the rail, aspiring to catch the dolphin's leap, watching clouds towering at the edge of the world, reading the changing face of the waters -- blue, green and gray. He has an easy humor and a sense of fun that he has kept since childhood, and he knows the difference between a joke at someone's expense and a prank that lifts morale. He can sense the weather better than a farmer, and can easily tell mist from fog, storm from squall. He will not necessarily come in out of the rain. His hearing is acute, finding a song in a steady wind across the deck, as he moves to the rhythmic drone of machin- ery. He can sleep through anything going on, yet he will wake easily at an unfamiliar tremor. He can smell land out of sight of it and can imagine liberty in the middle of his labors. He finds no stranger in the world, for he is at safe harbor within himself. He is first in line at chow, eager to answer mail call and anticipates the sounding of taps. He is patient with a friend and will wait for the deck to rise to his step. He does not forget a favor or a slight. At the farthest reaches of the ocean, he always remembers who he loves and constantly dreams of home. Limfoliz sailors ,find their own time during the deployment to experzerzce Hit' elements that Nature Offers to every seafarer. 354.1 ..,.,'C.vins , Jog., f. ' 3 H A, o V ,, 4 .1 Q , - .

Commissioned in March 1959 as Carrier Division Three, the command has completed 36 deployments to the Western Pacific and has been commanded by 38 rear admirals and one captain. During that time the command has embarked with 20 aircraft carriers, and is now permanently embarked aboard Lincoln. Carrier Air Wing Eleven CVW-11, which consists of approximately 80 aircraft in nine squadrons and over 2,000 personnel, is the essence of the Lincoln Battle Group. CVW-11 squadrons are home-based all over the West Coast of the U.S. and embark aircraft and personnel on Lincoln only when the ship is at sea for deploy- ments or training. Carrier Air Wing Eleven has a distinguished combat history and a capability which places it high among the elite fighting units of the Unites States Navy. Commissioned in October 1942, CVW-11 has partici- pated in World War II, the Korean Conflict, the Vietnam Conflict, and, most recently, in the Gulf War and in Operations Southern Watch and Continue Hope. Destroyer Squadron Twenty-One DESRON 21 provides maximum staff support and direction to all ships assigned to the squadron and maintains assigned units at the highest possible state of readiness, train- ing, discipline, and morale to the end that an optimum degree of operational readiness and battle efficiency will result. The staff of approximately 18 people supports and advises the commodore to the maximum extent possible in achieving this mission. This support is given through gather- ing, evaluating, correlating and presenting to the squadron commander detailed and accurate information in areas of training, operational readiness, discipline and morale of De- stroyer Squadron 21.

Carr Department Head Maintaining The Edge Although the 3M department is the smallest depart- ment onboard, its impact is felt shipwide everyday. One of 3M department's primary responsibilities is to administer the ship's 3M CMaintenance Material Mana gementl System. They accomplish this through collecting, consolidating and analyz- ing the PMS perfomance data of the other twenty departments and reviewing almost 300 maintenance actions that record the expenditures of manpower, material and time reported daily. The department also coordinates the 3M qualification progress of the ship's company. They develop, evaluate, and update lesson topics guides to aid in the training. They admin- ister about 450 qualifications exams per month. Another important responsibility is organizing the Command Zone inspection. Each week department personnel coordinate and monitor the inspection by gathering, collating and reporting those spaces found to be outstanding as well as the discrepencies found in the material condition, safety and damage control of 1,400 spaces. Lincoln 's 3-M department emphasizes maintenance material man- agement through ongoing training and lectures. ETCS SJ. Gielczyk DP1 KJ. Ialni-IS DP2 I.A.

Cmdr. Allen M. Stout Department Head Experts At Seamanship Marlinspikes, chains, pipes, line and paint... Aboard Lincoln there is no getting away from upkeep, mooring, fueling, replenishment, ground tackle, grinding, chipping and painting. Before any ship can pull into port, restock, take on fuel or look good from bow to stern, Deck Department becomes involved in a big way. From the lst. Lt., to the newest deck seaman, Deck Department is the watchful eye that looks out during the night, the skilled helmsman that steers his crew through the seas, and the voice that informs and alerts the crew of any -- and all -- of the events during the days at sea. Thanks to the expert seamanship of Deck Department personnel, Lincoln performs its mis- sion safely and smartly. The crossed anchors on the shoulder of every boatswain's mate represent the Navy's oldest rating, and the traditional sense of pride in workmanship which goes along with it.

Seder Department Head Underway Dentistry Lincoln's Dental Department, noted for its can-do spirit, is comprised of 13 enlisted men and five dental officers. The staff is capable of providing all aspects of modern dental health care. On an average day on board Lincoln, more than 70 patients are seen. Services include: annual exams, cleanings, operatives CfillingsD, periodontics Cgum treatmentl, endodontics Croot canalsb, prosthodontics Ccrowns Sr denturesb, and oral sur- gery. The fully equipped clinic and laboratory al- lows professional and relaxing care to patients in the most modern dental facility afloat. The Dental Department is an important adjunct to the medical team, manning battle dressing sta- tions, aiding in mass casualty scenarios, and helping organize the walking blood bank. All personnel are trained in CPR and basic life saving techniques, such as airway management, intravenous injection and hemorrhage control. Courteous and efficient service is the "hallmark" of a visit to the Lincoln Dental Department. A patient in one of Dental Departments chairs gets a thorough going over by Cindr.

Broughton Department Head Assistance, Protection, Enforcement and Prosecution Lincoln's Legal Department has two main branches, Legal and Security. The two branches work within guidelines of the Uniform Code Of Military IusticeCUCMD, to ensure that all Lincoln sailors are provided with legal assistance and protection. Both branches also work together to enforce and prosecute violations of the UCMI. The Legal branch provides two distinctly separate responsibilities to the crew. Much like a civilian law firm, they provide confidential legal guidance to the crew in such areas as tax laws, wills and powers-of-attorney. Like the local district attorney, Legal also investigates, prosecutes and prepares for trial reported violations of the UCMI. The Security branch is made up of Patrol Operations, Shipboard Security Engagement TacticsfSSETD Team, Com- mand lnvestigations and the Brig staff. As part of a Navy pilot program, Security is tasked with physical security of operational resources. Other areas of responsibility include law enforcement, corrections and physical safety of property and personnel aboard Lincoln.

Letoile Commanding Officer AIVIEFlICA'S FINEST The Men of the Marine Detachment perform the oldest and most traditional duty of the Corps: duty at sea. The primary mission of the Marines is to provide security for the ship in special situations requiring the unique capabilities of a combat trained Marine. Additional missions include: providing specially trained Ma- rines for ship boarding, embassy reinforcement, noncombatant evacu- ation operations, gas X oil platform takedowns and the tactical recovery of aircraft and personnel. Furthermore, the Marines are tasked to perform ceremonial functions aboard the ship. To this end, the Marine Detachment pro- vides a Color Guard and a Silent Drill Team. The Marine Detachment is permanently stationed aboard and fully integrated into the daily operations of the ship. During General Quarters, the Marines man two of the ship's .50 caliber machine guns, provide armed sentries to the bridge and augment one of the ship's repair lockers. The Marine Detachment is organized into five sections: a Headquarters section and four Guard sections. The headquarters section includes administration, supply, armory and damage control. The four guard sections are responsible for providing any special security capabilities required by the Captain of the ship. Lincoln 's Marine Detachment is equiped with the latest in combat gear and sophisticated weapons for search and seizure of foreign vessels. Marine Detachment 1st Lt. E. I. Olson 1st Sgt. B.

'ff' -- fry'-iz i- ,VI431 r , fy: 1 Capt. Scott T. Cantfil Department Head Chart And Compass The Navigation Department is comprised of two divisions: Signals and Navigation. Each is re- sponsible for separate but complementary duties. Signals Division provides the ship with vi- sual communicatons through the use of flags, pen- nants and flashing light. Trained in tactical signal- ing, signalmen communicate in code by visual means. Additionally, signalmen are the keepers of Navy tradition, providing expertise in honors and ceremonies. Navigation Division is responsible for the safe navigation of the ship. Using both electronic and visual means, quartermasters maintain a con- stant plot of the ship's position. Quartermasters keep and maintain all perti- nent charts and publications essential for maritime navigation. Standing round-the-clock watches on the ship's bridge, quartermasters serve as the navigator's right hand, logging historical data, tak- ing bearings, plotting the ship's movements, main- taining the time and steering from the helm. Naoigators plot the coarse ofthe ship and record crucial data into the log book. Navi ation Lt. E.N. Anderson Lt. S.H. Blaisdell QMCS H.E. Oubre SMC E.D. Bentley QM1 R.W. Foote SM1 W.C.

Welch Department Head Sharpening Sailors' Skills Lincoln's Training Department arranges, co- ordinates and administers the training of Lincoln personnel. The department provides quotas for everything from firefighting school to 3M courses. Because a Nimitz-class carrier is a complex and sometimes intimidating environment in which to work, a major effort by the department centers around the rapid indoctrination of newly reported personnel. Command Indoctrination Division holds a series of "Indoc" classes, where attendees receive briefs about various shipboard functions, situations and services which they will encounter during their tour aboard the ship. The indoctrination is thorough, and includes an introduction to basic damage control and ship- board maintenance and material management, or 3M. Newly-reported sailors attend an indoctrination class conducted by the TI'!?flZZ.lirQ Department. is :rfmg ga , fr:.gf-'- 4..- 9' " 2 sig? Q - 152513225 - me 1 's ma, N ff 'f-Wigs 5 ., ,E A .

The fighter, attack and support aircraft squadrons con- tribute both a defensive and offensive posture that is the fulcrum of modern carrier Warfare. Squadron personnel who remain on Lincoln during flight operations provide support for pilots engaged in air operations from the carrier. Whether patrolling the skies over Southern Iraq during Operation Southern Watch or conducting reconnaissance flights over Somalia during Operation Continue Hope, pilots and support offices of CVW-11 contributed significantly to the mis- sion of the joint commands engaged in establishing a postitive presence in the Pacific Ocean, Arabian Gulf and Indian Ocean theaters of operations.

The Seahawk is designed to operate from aircraft carriers and replace the SH-3H Sea King as the carrier battle group inner anti-submarine warfare zone helicopter. The Seahawk employs a new, longer-range active dipping sonar, in addition to sonobuoys to locate, track and attack submarines with the two MK-46 torpedoes it carries. New equipment employed in the Seahawk includes significant improve- ments in reliability and maintainability, plus vastly improved tacti- cal capabilities. Lincoln also carries the Hotel variant of the Seahawk which is used for strike-rescue operations and reconnaissance. The Seahawk has a range of 100 nautical miles and is able to remain on station for approximately two hours. A-6E Intruder The VA-95 Green Lizards fly the Grumman A-6E Intruder. This subsonic, low-level medium attack bomber has the capability to deliver weapons with pinpoint accuracy deep into hostile territory. Its payload is exceeded only by the Air Force's B-52 bomber. Flying from the deck of an aircraft carrier, it can accomplish its task day or night, in any weather condition. The two-man crew, consisting of a pilot and bombardier X navigator, has at its disposal the most modern navigation, electronic warfare and weapons systems. In addition to the "E" model, the KA-6D tanker version is also employed to provide the airwing with an inflight refueling capability. EA-6B Prowler The VAQ-135 Black Ravens fly the Grumman EA-6B Prowler. The Prowler is a fully integrated electronic warfare aircraft that combines long-range, all weather capability with an advanced electronic coun- termeasure system. The four-man crew consists of a pilot and three electronic countermeaure officers. A forward equipment bay and a pod-shaped fairing on the vertical fin houses the additional avionics equipment. Five external store stations are used to carry jammer pods or fuel tanks. The primary mission of the Prowler is to provide electronic warfare support to the fleet by detecting and jamming enemy radars. By denying the enemy the use of his radars, the EA- 6B can effectively "screen" friendly strike aircraft and neutralize enemy weapons systems. E-2C Plus Hawkeye VAW-117 Wallbangers fly the Grumman E-2C Plus Hawkeye. Hawkeye's primary mission is to provide units of the fleet with detection and warning of approaching enemy forces. This the use of long-range radar and sophisticated computer electronic systems to detect, identify and report enemy while many miles from the battlegroup. The Hawkeye is a turbo-prop aircraft capable of reaching a station well of the battlegroup, while reaching speeds in excess of 300 altitudes above 30,000 feet. The crew consists of a pilot, co- combat information center officer, air control officer and flight The Airborne Tactical Data System forms an air exten- of the shipborne Navy Tactical Data System. ff ,,.,,,,V, yfC,vj4, f , ,f 'ff,, f' 'V , Mf,f,f,, pw, zi,iy,4Z7fyf 4 on , 7 V523 riZf!?"7f'5774Z5f f , ,I f,4,!,n.ff,?,?g7Zf?y ,M ,f . 4 A ',f.,fg,ff ff f' ,Lf 4 wmfygf ,QQ frifW,',j,41,f4'f 'fi f Q, f f ,f ww, ,Gwf ff Aff 'WWW fn 4'4i'f!fff',,' ,f ,,Q,fj,fff' WZ YW 1fQ74fff'U?jQg3f4f no fm, f,.f,z4,ff,f f it My ff,f,,,.f,f 4,fy4'6ff4 fm, ff, y,.,,t, ,,. , , avg f ftfnggfwfl .. ,,, , f, aw ,,fg,.n4,e I I ..,.

L , The A rcraft f CVW-1 1 The modern carrier air wing provides a variety of sophisticated aircraft capable of performing a multi-faceted array of offensive and defensive missions. In this era of increased littoral responsibility, the use of many types of aircraft which can operate under any number of strike and detection scenarios is paramount to maintaining a strong air superiority. During operations in the Arabian Gulf and off the coast of Somalia, the aircraft squadrons of Carrier Air Wing Eleven carried out the policies and plans outlined in the white paper, "From The Sea," with purpose and exacting precision. F-14A Tomcat The VF-213 Blacklions fly the Grumman F-14A Tomcat. The Tomcat's mission is to intercept and destroy enemy aircraft in all weather conditions, in order to establish and maintain local air superiority. With a maximum speed in excess of Mach 2.0 and a combat ceiling of over 50,000 feet, the Tomcat represents the premier fighter aircraft in the world. It has a crew of two men -- a pilot and a radar intercept officer. Its automatic variable swept wings and high maneuvering devices enable the Tomcat to perform well at reduced speeds and greatly enhance it "dog-fight" capabilities. The Tomcat can be config- ured with a combination of Phoenix, Sparrow, and Sidewinder air- to-air missiles. It is also equipped with an internal 20mm Vulcan cannon. FXA-18 Hornet The VFA-22 Fighting Redcocks, VFA-94 Mighty Shrikes, and VMFA- 3l4 Black Knights fly the McDonnell-Douglas FIA-18 Hornet. The Hornet is designed for traditional strike applications such as interdic- tion and close air support without compromising its fighter capabili- ties. The Hornet can reach speeds in excess of Mach 1.7 while achieving a combat ceiling of over 50,000 feet and with a combat range of 400 nautical miles.. The Hornet is armed with one 20mm MK-1 6A1 Vulcan cannon and maybe configured with a combanation of Sparrow and Sidewinder missiles, as well as conventional air-to- ground ordnance. The newest carrier-based fixed-wing aircraft, the Hornet is an effective mix of both fighter and attack missions. S-3B Viking The VS-29 Dragonfires fly the Lockheed S-3B Viking. The Viking is the first completely computerized, carrier-based, anti-submarine jet aircraft. It has an all-weather capability to search for, localize and destroy enemy submarines, and contains an advanced avionics system designed specifically to keep pace with the increased capa- bilities of nuclear-powered submarines. The Viking is designed to carry an array of ordance, including torpedoes, mines, depth charges and missiles. lt has general purpose computers capable of analyzing and displaying underwater sounds and other data on television displays. The Viking's foremost task is to protect the aircraft carrier from subsurface threats. lts avionics system is the most extensive, multi-mode, sophisticated application of electronic sensor and soft- ware technology in any tactical aircraft. fw v-P HS-6 Cmdr. james A. McDonell Cmdr. Michael F. Wanjon Commanding Officer Executive Officer The 'Indians' Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Six was commissioned on June 1, 1956, with a primary mission of search and rescue. In 1958 HS-6 transitioned to the Sikorsky SH-34, with a mission of anti-submarine warfare. In 1962 the squadron received yet another Sikorsky, the SH-3A "Sea King." HS-6 helped to recover Project Mercury astronauts in 1962 and 1963. In 1966, while embarked aboard the USS Kearsarge CCVS-335, the squadron supported air rescue operations over Vietnam, rescuing 16 downed pilots. In 1971, I-IS-6 participated in the recovery of the Apollo 14 crew. 1974 brought the squadron's deployment aboard the USS Constella- tion CCV 645 while a part of Carrier Air Wing 9, and the Battle "E" efficiency award. In 1981, HS-6 joined the Carrier Air Wing 11 I USS Enterprise CCVN 655 team. In 1984, HS-6 set a six-aircraft squadron record by flying over 650 hours in one month. In 1986, HS-6 deployed aboard USS Enterprise for a WestPac! Mediterranean cruise and celebrated its 30th birthday. The squadron returned home to NAS North Island, Calif., in August 1986. HS-6 deployed aboard Enterprise for a WestPac cruise in 1988 and flew surveillance missions during hostilities with Iran. The squadron rescued one pilot and one aircrewman and performed numerous MedEvacs, including a seriously injured Iapanese fisherman. HS-6 also received national attention by helping rescue a whale caught in a fishing net. Following the cruise, HS-6 was awarded the Ioint Meritorious Unit Award, the Armed Forces Expedi- tionary Medal, the Sikorsky Superior Maintenance Award and placed first in the COMASWWINGPAC ASW Rodeo Cfourth quarterb. In 1989, the Indians deployed aboard Enterprise for the last time, completing an around the world cruise and earning the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal. In 1990, HS-6 transitioned to two new Sikorsky products, the SH-60F and HH-60H "Seahawk" helicopters. In 1991, the Indians deployed aboard USS Abraham Lincoln CCVN 725, accumulating more than 3,000 mishap-free flight hours in the hot Arabian Gulf and earning the prestigious COMUSNAVCENT "Arabian Fighting Falcon" Award. During that deployment, the Indians participated in READIEX '91, Operation "Fiery Vigil", four SAR evolutions, conducted Com- bat SAR exercises with Saudi-based USAAF units, participated in Beach Flash '91 and located a floating mine and deployed an EOD team to destroy it. The squadron continued its fine history during WestPac 1993 by participating in Operation Southern Watch, enforcing the UN no-fly zone over Southern Iraq, and by assisting other CVW-11 aircraft in patroling the waters and skies over Somalia during Operation Continue Hope.

Hafner Commanding Officer Executive Officer The "Black Ravens" The "Black Ravens" of Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron One Hundred Thirty-Five CVAQ-1355 are home based at NAS Whidbey Island, Oak Harbor, Wash.. The squadron was established in 1969 and has flown a number of sophisticated aircraft, beginning with the Douglas IKA-3B "Skywarrior" and transitioning to the Grumman EA-6B Prowler. The Black Ravens first deployed to the Western Pacific and Indian Oceans in 1976 aboard USS Ranger CCV 615. They deployed to the Meditarranean in 1977 aboard USS Nimitz CCVN 685. The squadron's next deployment was aboard USS Kitty Hawk CCV 631, earning VAQ-135 the Navy Expeditionary Medal during the Iranian hostage crisis. The squadron's second Navy Expeditionary Medal came during a 1981 deployment aboard Kitty Hawk. In addition, they earned the Humanitarian Service Medal for their assistance with the rescue of Vietnamese refugees. Following assignment to USS America CCV 661 in 1982, the Black Ravens recieved word to transfer to USS Nimitz and deployed to the Mediter- ranean Sea aboard the Nimitz later that year. The squadron deployed with the America in 1984 and 1985. The 1985 deployment earned VAQ-135 the Merito- rious Unit Commendation for participation in N ATO's Ocean Safari '85. On New Years Day, 1986, VAQ-135 deployed with no notice to support Sixth Fleet operations in the Mediterranean Sea. The squadron joined USS Coral Sea, providing electronic warfare support to Navy forces operating off of Libya, participating in strike action in the Gulf of Sidra and in successful strikes on the BenjnafBenghazi airfields. The squadron was awarded two Navy Unit Commendations, the Navy X Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal and the Association of Old Crows Outstanding Unit Award for 1986. The Black Ravens were reassigned aboard USS Enterprise between 1986 and 1989, participating in several major exercises and operations, includ- ing Operations "Praying Mantis" and "lust Cause." VAQ-135 deployed aboard USS Abraham Lincoln CCVN 725 in September 1990. The squadron participated in Operation Fiery Vigil during Lincoln's 1991 WestPac deployment and took part in Operation Desert Storm exercises with Oman, as well as conducting exercises with the Iapanese Maritime Self Defense Force. The squadron was presented the 1991 AIRPAC Safety "S" Award in recognition of their 12-year safety record. During Lincoln's 1993 deployment, the squadron participated in Operations "Southern Watch," enforcing the no-fly zone over Southern Iraq and "Continue Hope," in the skies over Somalia. VAQ-135 celebrated 14 mishap-free years in November, 1993. VA Q-135 Lt. Cmdr. KJ. Cronin Lt. Cmdr. D.D. Pauls Lt. Cmdr. M.D. Sonnefeld Lt. Cmdr. F.M. Straughan Lt. W.T. Alex Lt. E.L. Ballinger Lt.

Iumes C. Tellefson Cmplr, Daniel Keuhlen Cvmmdnding Officer Executive Officer The "Wallbangers" The "Wallbangers" of Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron One Hundred Seventeen CVAW-1175 are home based at NAS Miramar, San Diego, Calif.. They fly the Grumman E-2C Plus "Hawkeye." The squadron was established at NAS North Island, Calif., on July 1, 1975 and deployed to the Mediterranean Sea aboard USS Independence KCV 625 in October. With USS Ranger CCV 619 and Carrier Air Wing Two, the squadron made its first WestPac in February 1979. The squadron won the CN O Safety Award in 1981 and deployed on WestPac aboard USS Enterprise as a member of Carrier Air Wing Eleven. The "Walbangers" earned the Battle "E", CN O Safety Award and was a nominee for the COMNAVAIRPAC AEW Excellence Award, a "clean-sweep" for 1983. Aboard USS Enterprise in 1984, VAW-117 became the first West Coast squadron to log more than 2,000 flight hours during a deployment. The squadron earned its second consecutive CN O Safety Award in 1985 and also received the AEW Excellence Award. During the 1985 WestPac, VAW-117 played a key role in Operation Praying Mantis, involving the destruction of an Iranian ship. The Wallbangers deployed aboard Enterprise for the final time in 1989, participating in Pacific Exercise 1989, the largest naval exercise since WWII, and flew a record 503.2 flight hours in one month. VAWf117 was awareded the Battle and the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal following the "Earnest Will" exercise in the Persian Gulf. - I In 1990, the Wallbangers transitioned to the Grurrunan E-2C Plus. Following a brief detachment to CFB Cold Lake, Alberta, Canada, for "Maple Flag '90", they deployed aboard USS Abraham Lincoln CCVN 725 as the carrier transited around Cape Horn to her new home port in Alameda, Calif. The next deployment aboard Lincoln was accelerated due to the start of Operation Desert Shield and subsequently Operation Desert Storm. VAW-11 7 deployed with CVW-11 onboard Lincoln and assisted in the evacuation of military dependents from Subic Bay, Phillippines, in the wake of the Mount Pinatubo eruption, for which the squadron earned the Ioint Meritorious Unit Commen- dation. 1 Tensions in the Arabian Gulf remained high and the Wallbangers kept watch on Iraq -- at times the only airborne early warning asset watching the entire region. Exiting the Gulf, the 'Bangers surpassed 14 years of mishap free operations. After a 1992 mission to provide Ioint Task Force Four airborne early warning, tracking and control assets for counter-narcotics operations in Panama, VAW-117 deployed with the Lincoln Battle Group on WestPac 1993.

Michael Galpin Commanding Officer Executive Officer The "Blacklions" The Fighting "Blacklions" of Fighter Squadron Two One Three CVF- 2135 are home based at NAS Miramar, San Diego, Calif. They fly the Grumman F-14A "Tomcat." The squadron was corrunissioned in Iune 1955, at NAS Moffett Field, Calif. The Blacklions flew the F-2HS Banshee during their first deployment aboard USS Bon Homme Richard CCV 315 and then transitioned to the F-4D Skyray for their next two deployments on USS Lexington CCV 165. By their third WesPac onboard Lexington, they were flying the F-3H2 Demon, which gave them their first capability with the new AIM-7 Sparrow air-to-air missile. The squadron moved to NAS Miramar in June 1961 and took possession of their new, two-seat F-4 Phantoms in 1964. In 1965, VF-213 joined Carrier Air Wing Eleven and began the first of six combat deployments to Southeast Asia aboard USS Kitty Hawk CCV 635. The Blacklions flew more than 1 1,500 combat missions and delivered more than 6,000 tons of ordnance over the next seven years. In March, 1971 , VF- 213 became the first fleet squadron to fly the Phantom more than 1,000 hours in a single month. In 1976 the Blacklions transitioned to the N avy's premier supersonic fighter, the F-14 Tomcat. In 1982 the squadron began training with the new Tactical Air Reconnaissance Pod System CTARPS5. That same year they deployed aboard USS Enterprise CCVN 655 and flew the longest tasked carrier flight for an F-14 when they completed a 1,755 TARPS mission. During WestPac '88, the squadron took an active role in ensuring the safe transit of reflagged tankers through the Persian Gulf and the Straits of Hormuz. They also participated in Operation "Praying Mantis," a naval conflict with Iran. The Blacklions were awarded the prestigious "Boola Boola" award in 1989 for their aggressive and professional completion of all sched- uled missile firings. That fall the squadron went around-the-world on Enterprises final West Coast deployment. In 1990, the Blacklions embarked with CVW-11 onboard the Navy's newest nuclear powered aircraft carrier, USS Abraham Lincoln CCVN 725, transiting from the East Coast around the tip of South America to Alameda, Calif. The WestPac which followed saw the Fighting Blacklions operating in support of Operation Desert Storm. During WestPac 1993, VF-213 participated in Operation Southern Watch, helping to enforce the no-fly zone over Southern Iraq, and participated in Operation Continue Hope, flying reconnaissance missions over Somalia.

The squadron began as a light attack organization in 1958 and flew all models of the A-4Skyhawk until transitioning to the A-4 Corsair II in 1971. VFA-94 completed seven consecutive combat deployments to Southeast Asia, serving aboard USS Ranger in 1964, USS Enterprise in 1965, USS Hancock and USS Bon Homme Richard. The squadron completed its final Southeast Asia combat deployment aboard USS Coral Sea, participating in the first major Navy bombing strikes into North Vietnam since they were halted in 1968. In 1973 the squadron again deployed aboard USS Coral Sea, support- ing minesweeping operations off North Vietnam, In 1975 the Shrikes provided helicopter support during the evacuation of Saigon and, shortly thereafter, the recovery of USS Mayaguez.

In 1982, the Shrikes deployed again aboard Enterprise, winning every operational and maintenance award they were eligible to win. In 1986 the squadron transited the Suez Canal aboard Enterprise, supporting opera- tions against Libya in the Mediterranean Sea. The Might Shrikes again made history in 1988 by striking the naval forces of Iran as part of the first major U.S. naval battle since WWII. In October 1988, the Might Shrikes received the Lt. j. g. Bruce Carrier Award for excellence in aviation maintenance for fiscal year 1988. In 1989 the Shrikes deployed abaord Enterprise and marked their 20th deployment, a world cruise which began in Alameda and ended in Norfolk, Va., where Enterprise underwent an extended overhaul. The Mighty Shrikes received their first FKA-18C Hornets and were redesignated Strike Fighter Squadron 94, transferring to USS Abraham Lin- coln and Carrier Air Wing Eleven. At that time, the squadron has been awarded the Ioint Meritorious Award, three Navy Unit Commendations, four Meritorious Unit Commendations, two Armed Forces Expeditionary Medals, four Battle Efficiency Awards and two Navy Expeditionary Medals.

From 1965 to 1970, VMFA-314 conducted combat operations in North and South Vietnam, Laos, and the Tonkin Gulf, receiving the CN O Naval Safety Award, the Hanson Trophy Cas the best Marine Corps fighter Attack Squadronl and the Commandant's Efficiency Trophy and the Merito- rious Unit Citation. VMFA-314 flew the F4 Phantom until 1982, when the squadron recieved its first two F f A-18's. The squadron embarked aboard the USS Coral Sea from 1985-86, participating in Freedom of Navigation opera- tions and Operation El Dorado Canyon near Libya. In July, 1986, a Black Knight pilot successfuly dropped a Walleye Ctelevision-guided weaponl, a first for a VMFA-314 aircraft. In 1987, they participated in Operation Bright Star '87 with the Egyptian Air Force. In 1988, VMFA- 314 flew ten Hornets from El Toro to Balikesir, Turkey, as part of a joint NATO exercise. In 1 989, VMFA-314 returned to WestPac, participating in several exercises in the Philippines and throughout the Far East. The squadron was the first Marine Hornet squadron rapid- deployed to the Persian Gulf in 1990 for Operation Desert Shield. The squadron flew more sorties than any other Navy or Marine Corps squadron during Operation Desert Storm, returning from combat without the loss of any squadron members or aircraft. In 1993, VMFA-314 deployed aboard USS Abraham Lincoln, participating in Operations Southern Watch and Continue Hope. VMFA -3 14 Major I.F. Browncowe Major R.C. Gerd Capt. 1.1. Daly Capt. G.L.

Charles Smith Commanding Officer Executive Officer The "Dragonfi res" Commissioned in 1960, the "Dragonfires" of Air Anti-Subma- rine Squadron Twenty-Nine have served in all major oceans of the globe through tactical employment of the S-2 Tracker and S-3A Viking. In 1961, the squadron embarked aboard USS Kearsarge CCVS- 333, assisting in the recovery of Mercury space capsules in 1962 and 1963. In 1964, the squadron began operations in the South China Sea after the Gulf of Tonkin Incident. From 1966 through 1972, VS-29 operated aboard several carriers on deployment in the Gulf of Tonkin. After transitioning to the Viking in 1975, VS-29 made the first Western Pacific deployment of the S-3A while embarked on USS Enterprise CCVN-655. While deployed, two VS-29 S-3As achieved a Naval Aviation first by flying a 1,700-mile, carrier-launched overwater flight from Enterprise to Diego Garcia. In 1977, VS-29 joined the CVW- 2! USS Ranger team and was instrumental in the Vietnam refugee surveillance and rescue effort. After one cruise on USS Ranger, the squadron joined USS Kitty Hawk for WestPac. Ioining USS Carl Vinson CCVN-709 in 1982, VS-29 deployed for Vinson's maiden voyage and "Around the World Cruise" in 1983. The Vikings cruised aboard Vinson in 1984, 1986, 1988 and 1990. During PACEX '89, the largest naval exercise since World War II, VS-29 earned top honors as CVW-15's mining warfare champs. In 1990, the Dragonfires transferred to CVW-11 aboard USS Abraham Lincoln for a transit from Norfolk to Alameda by way of South America. In 1991, VS-29 deployed on WestPac '91 arriving in the Arabian Gulf in the wake of Gulf War. Lincoln was a key player in "Fiery Vigil," the evacuation of Subic Naval Base during the eruption of Mount Pinatubo. At that time, VS-29 had been awarded five CNO Safety "S" awards, seven Commander, Naval Air Force Battle awards, two Golden Wrench awards and two Meritorious Unit Commendations. Their motto has been "Performance with Style." During Lincoln's 1993 WestPac deployment, VS-29, along with other squad- rons from CVW-11, flew missions in support of Operations Southern Watch and Restore Hope. VS 29 Lt. Cmdr. I.E. Higgins Lt.

There was no other day on all of WestPac 1993 that could match the one that brought the crew of USS Abraham Lincoln "home from the sea." As the carrier passed beneath the Golden Gate Bridge and entered San Francisco Bay, a crowd of well-wishers lined the bridge rail to cheer the ship home. Q As the carrier approached Naval Air Station Alameda, the welcome continued. Banners, signs and posters decorated the pier, greeting friends, loved ones or family members who were returning after a six month deployment. Members of the Lincoln Wive's Club, the Lincoln Committee and the Navy League had worked hard to arrange the celebration. A As Lincoln sailors stepped off the brow and embraced loved ones, many first-time seafarers understood the true significance of the word, "homeport. " Alameda was indeed the place where each sailor's journey ended and where new discoveries began. Crew members descend the brow on the day of Lincoln 'S homecom- ing, anxious to reunite with their loved ones. elm? Top left: Friends and families anxiously await a glimpse of their returning sailors. Above right: A mother and her child look forward to greeting "Daddy. " Above: A welcome home sign with a dual message is raised by an eager family member. Right: One especially familiar face waits on the pier. W for rave?

Yet, for many sailors on board the carrier no announce- ments were listened to more care- fully than the Captains daily ad- dress tothe crew. For it was during the Captains daily gouge that news of newborn babies was passed out over the ship's l-MC. These "new fathers" waited anxiously to hear news that their wives had given birth to a son or daughter. They might have already been told beforehand about the message, but hearing the news from the skipper over the 1MC somehow made it more official, more real. Still, that celebration upon first hearing the news thousands of miles from home could not compare with the sight of that son or daugh- ter in person. When Lincoln arrived in Alameda on December 15, there was an early liberty call for sailors who had learned that they had be- come "new fathers." For these sailors, getting a look into those "new faces" was the single most important moment of their homecoming. Far left: MM1 Neal I. Griffith is the proud grandfather ofAshley Nadine Lewis.
