In 18T8, when Lincoln was only 9 vears old his mother Nancy Hanks Lincoln died. His father, Thomas Lincoln, remarried and his step- mother, Sarah Bush, would exert great influence on his charac- ter . The stories of Lincoln readmg by firelight are of almost mythical proportions. With very limited formal schooling Lincoln became a master of the english language. From these meager beginnings came one of the greatest states- men this country, and this world, has ever seen. Lincoln served as a captain in the Blackhawk war, four terms in the Illinois State Legislature and one term in congress. Twice defeated for the United States Senate, he was twice elected President of the United States. Abraham Lincoln served his country during one of its most bloody and trying times. As Commander in chief , the victory of the ' Union over the Confederacy was his, and he had every right to treat the southern states wi ' th malice and contempt. He, instead, treated them with dignity and honor, gladly accepting their return to the union. He did not view them as enemies but as brothers. He did not exalt in their defeat but gloried that the nation " ...shall not perish " . Abraham Lincoln was a man who loved his country with a devotion which is hard to imagine. Probably his most famous speech, his Ge ttysburg address, did not speak of ending slavery but of preserving the country. He did not feel the war was about ideologies and human rights, it was a test of whether the union woula remain intact and alive. His analogy of " a house divided " showed eloquently that he viewed the south with the love of family. After Lincoln ' s death, the victim of an assassin ' s bullet, then Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton declared of him, " Now he belongsto the ages.

It is a legend, a ship of the line, a ship with pride and personnhty which is second to none. The aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln was built by Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Company. The keel waslaid on November 3, 1984 and the ship was christened and launched on February 13, 1988. Mrs. JoAnn Krukar Webb, wife of the then Secretary of the Navy, James H. Webb, stood on a platform and struck a ' bottle of champagne across the carrier ' s bow. The great warship slid into the water for the first time as a navy band plaved. From that traditional ceremony until today, the carrier has proven itself worthy of the name, Abraham Lincoln. The history of the Abraham Lincoln legend begins with the ship ' s construction. Forty-million man-hours by 30,000 shipyard employees went into the " carrier ' s modular-style construction. Abraham Lincoln was built in sections, or modules, like a three dimensional jigaw puzzle. The huge building blocks of CVN-72 were hoisted into place by a massive crane and then welded section by section. Extensive pre-outfitting made Abraham Lincoln easier to build. The carrier ' s designers and builders took their inspired assembly process from lessons learned building other Nimitz-class CVNs. Following sea trials m September 1989, preparation for the ship ' s commissioning began. Guests would include the honorable Secretary of Defence, Ricriard Cheney; ship ' s sponsor, JoAnn Webb; Governor James R. Thompson, Admiral Carlisle A.H. Trost, Chief of Naval Operations; as well as several members of the Illinois Commissioning Committee and other dignitaries. The ceremony took place on November 1 1, 1989. The legend was instilled in the carrier when the CNO commissioned Abraham Lincoln as a " ship of the line " and instructed the ship to " come alive. " The legend was carried onboard in the heart of each crewmember who raced up the brow to man the rail of the carrier. The commissioning pcnant was raised and the carrier officially became USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) .•. ' v. . .

LE r » r I LSS Abraham Lincoln (CV 72 is keel u-aslaid on Nov. 3, l ' »84, at Newport News, Virginia. Four years later, the ship was christened and began a series of performance trials leading up to commissioning on Nov. 11, 1989, in Norfolk, Virg. After completing shakedown and acceptance trials, Abraham Lincoln departed Norfolk in Sept. 1990, to complete an inter-fleet transfer from the Atlantic to Pacific Fleet, and eventual arrival in her homeport of Alameda, Calif. In January ' 1991, the ship began accelerated workups for its first deploy- ment, in response to Operation Desert Shield Desert Storm. On May 28, 1991, the ship set sail for its maiden Western Pacific deployment, nearly four months ahead of its original deployment date. After spending much of early 1992 in a Selected Restricted AvailabiUty (SRA) at Naval Air Station Alameda, the ship set out in the latter part of the year on work-ups for a second WestPac. Once again, the ship and airwing completed carrier qualifications and numerous other operations with exemplary results, preparing for deployment on June 15, 1993. On April 1 1 , 1 995, Abraliam Lincobi set sail on another WestPac. The cruise was successful, but as always the crewmembers were happy to be home after being away from their friends and family for six months. i r Opposite page.

The Message Pr x:essing Center (CROl) keeps the message traffic flowing while Tech Confrol (CR02) keeps the high tech gear " on the air " ensuring the right person or aircraft receives the right message at the right time. Preparation for WESTTAC ' 95 started only weeks after return from our previous deployment. The advent of numerous " State of the Art " communications systems installed during Ship ' s Restricted Availability (SRA), required numerous personnel to attend tleet schools to learn how to operate and maintain the new equipment. A high degree of technical expertise and rigorous training program ensured they were all prepared for all phases of the work up cycle. All exercises were completed with a competency factor exceeding 99 peri-ent, the highest for any aircraft carrier fleet wide. All the hard work and preparation paid off with ABRAHAM LINCOLN Radiomen beingawarded.forthe second consecutive year, theCommunicationsGreen " C " recognizing them as the finest communicators in the fieeL During deployment, over 250 tactical circuits were maintained around the cliKk and nearly 350,00 messages processed over a six month period. ABRAHAM LINCOLN Communicators once again proved they were the best at what they do, providing outstanding support for ships over three ocean areas and setting standards which will be utilized fleet wide.

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. They may not get the limelight the pilots do, and Steven Segal probably won ' t play a Boatswain ' s Mate m his next movie but deck department is the unsung hero of any ship at sea. From the First Lieutenant, to the newest deck seaman. Deck Department is the watchful eye that looks out during the night, the skilled helmsmen 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, ABRAHAM LINCOLN performs its mission safely and smartly. The crossed anchors on the shoulder of every Boatswain ' s Mate represents the Navy ' s oldest rating, and the traditional sense of pride in workmanship which goes along with it. Both divisions in Deck Department provide personnel for the " Sides Crew, " keeping the hull of the ship always looking its best, in every port ABRAHAM LINCOLN pulls into. 1st Division First Division is in charge of the ceremonial areas of the ship including the Foc ' sle, the Quarterdeck, and the Lincoln Room. These areas are visited by numerous distinguished isitors as well as ship ' s company for reenlistments , retirements and award cer- em onies. The ship ' s two thirty-ton anchors are maintained by First Division and utilized in foreign ports where Deck department stands anchor watches and operates the Captain ' s Gig. Underway replenishment station five, seven, nine and thirteen are manned by First Division personnel for receiving fuel and or stores.

Sturdy Dental Officer Tlie Dental Department provides the best modern dental health care avail- able to the ABRAHAM LINCOLN and embarked Air Wing Staff personnel. It is manned by 16 enlisted personnel and five dental officers. More than 70 patients are seen on an average day. Services include: annual examinations, preventive treatments, oral surgery, and all phases of restorative care from fillings to partial and complete dentures. The clinic and laboratory are fully equipped with the latest in dental equipment in order to provide the best dental care possible. The Dental Department does not restrict itself to oral problems. It also acts as an augment to the medical team manning battle dressing stations, aiding in mass casualty scenarios. All dental technicians and dental officers are trained in CPR and basic life saving techniques, such as airway management, intrave- nous injection and hemorrage control. They are responsible for organization of the walking blood bank where donors are pre-screened for possible future need. If vou don ' t draw the blood ahead of time you don ' t have to worry about it going bad. If the need for blood arises for an involved surgical procedure or a catastrophic injury, the type of blood needed can be readily accessed for transfusion. Courteous and efficient service is the trademark of a visit to the ABRAHAM LINCOLN Dental Department. - 100 DENTAL Department 1)72 ( K h,inr IIT: K a h.imell.i I1T2 A Rohni on - " - — ' j — - r t f H J A. - » .-«fl 1 i I c;H f Ji:»« 1 1 ■ ■ .%t =- -.— • -B ijk.

Heery Chief Engineer The Engineering Department is one of the largest and most diversified departments onboard ABRAHAM LINCOLN. It ' s nearly 350 personnel in five divisions can equate to many of the companies who provide services to you in your hometown. They are a Fire Department, Utilities Department, Electric and Telephone Company and the Public Works Department all rolled into one. Headed by the Chief Engineer and with aid of his five Pricipal Assistants, they are responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of a wide range of equipment and systems throughout the ship. The responsibility for keeping the ship afloat and functioning is an all hands effort but the job of keeping it intact falls on the engineers. Tliey operate the ship ' s fire main system and are the primary damage control team members, they train the crew in basic and advanced damage control and they hold the data base of all damage control equipment and fittings throughout the ship. There is not a single space on this mighty warship which does not involve the engineers in some way. The cableways and piping over your head, the fire stations and water tight doors you pass and the decks you walk on are all tied to engineering department. Have I10 doubt, if there is a major repair action anywhere on the ship you can bet the men and women of engineering will be involved in one way or another. 104 5% ,.4 f J A Auxiliaries Auxiliaries Division acts as the Utilities De- partment. The steani heat shop ensures that tlie numerous auxiliary systems such as catapaults, hot water heaters, laundry and galley equip- ment have the necessary steam to operate. Macliinery shop maintains aircraft elevators which carry our aircraft to and from the flight deck and steering gear which guide the ship. AC R maintains the air condtioners which cool the ship while the 02N2 plant generates the liquid oxygen nitrogen which cool the air crews. Tlie varied workcenters perform different tasks but they all share one common goal. Tliey keep the ship running at peak efficiency. 1 11 AG Artii 1 n K Cmlihrist MMie VVl Fchi-in 1 11 1 kimhrou ;h MMl R,A McGeorge MMl R.J. Potosme ENl T.M Rcnken MMKSW) S. Stojavincbic B ' J MMl R.S.

They respond to all fires and flood- ing throughout the ship. They are also the Fire Marshalls who approve Hot Work Requests and the Gas Free Engineers who check for ac- ceptable atmosphere in the spaces. D.C. Division also teaches the crew all about the basics and advanced aspects of damage control, and maintains the AFFF stations and all installed fire fighting systems. While in the event of big emergencies they may call upon the rest of the ship, such as General Quarters, to control and contain the damage, but even in the repair lockers the DC men are still our first line of defense against fire, flooding and structural damage.

Evans Command Judge Advocate In today ' s world, most operational, administrative, and personal decisions require an understanding of applicable laws and regulations, both military and civilian. Legal Department exists to advise both the Commanding Officer and individual Sailors, Airmen, and Mamies onboard ABRAHAM LINCOLN, on the law. Legal Department personnel review criminal investigations by ship ' s Security and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, draft charges based on the evidence, advise the Commanding Officer on appropri- ate disciplinary action, and process offense reports through captain ' s mast or courts- martial, in compliance with the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Legal Department personnel also advise the Commanding Officer on a wide range of administrative law issues, conduct and review JAG Manual investigations, process administrative discharges for misconduct, monitor overseas liberty risk program, and respond to congressional inquiries. Of equal importance is advice rendered to individual crewmembers. Legal Department personnel prepare wills and powers of attorney upon request and provide confidential advice when needed on family law matters, landlord-tenant disputes, con- sumer debt, and civil lawsuits, to name a few. Working closely with the Legal Department onboard is the Naval Criminal Investigative Service Agent Afloat. Permanently assigned to ABRAHAM LINCOLN, this agent investigates all major criminal offenses involving ship ' s company, embarked squad- rons, and other ships within the battle group. An additional agent is assigned during deployments to handle all foreign counter-intelligence matters for the battle group and assist as needed on criminal investigations. % MARTINDALE- HUBBFLL N ' TERNATIOVAL LAW DIGEST ARGENTINA- VENEZUFi.A LAW DIGESTS SELECTLD INTERNATIONAL CONVENTIONS Alm •] , it Rights _ and " •mwdfes ONE HUNDRED WENry-SEVEKTH VEA« T«bl«.H LEGAL Department I C B Bjcn,-] I li AU I U I 11,1 I :DKCImL- LN2 R.A.

Cyr Commanding Officer The men of the Marine Detachment proudly perform the oldest and most traditional duty of the Corps: Sea Duty. The primary mission of the Marines is to provide security for the ship in special situations requiring unique capabilities of a combat trained Ma- rine. Furthermore, the Marines are tasked to ceremonial functions aboard ABRAHAM LINCOLN. To this end, the Marine Detach- ment provides a Color Guard and a Silent Drill Team. The ceremo- nial functions the Marines provide play a key role in the diplomatic and good will missions of the Carrier Battle Group around the world . The Marine Detachment is permanently stationed aboard and fully integrated into the daily operations of the ABRAHAM LIN- COLN. During General Quarters, the Marines man two of the ship ' s .50 caliber machine guns, and provide armed sentries to the bridge. The Marine Detachment is organized into four sections: a Head- quarters section and three guard sections. The headquarters section includes administration, supply, armory, training and damage contrc l.

Antosek Senior Medical Officer The Medical Department cares for the sick or injured personnel onboard ABRAHAM LINCOLN. Medical provides a variety of services; x-ray, pharmacy, laboratory, optical, physical exams and preventive medicine. Medical utilizes an inpatient ward for the care of surgical patients, and patients requiring special nursing care. The Senior Medical Officer prcmdes guidance to the Commanding Officer in the areas of sanitation, personal hygiene, radiation health, environmental and industrial health and aer omedical evacuations. One of the extended responsibilities of the department is training the crew in first and self aid, heat stress, sanitation and sexually transmitted diseases as well as pregna ncy a wa reness. Tliere is also a program in effect onboa rd whereby crewmembers can receive their basic CPR and CPR instructor qualifications. The department is on the " Cutting Edge " of technology as well. In the early months of West Pac ' 95 they performed the first Laproscopic Hernia surgery ever on a naval vessel underway. They were also among the first military imits to " test the waters " in the area of Telemedicine. Utilizing equipment providc J by John Hopkins University, TRW, and E-systems, they are pioneers on the infomiation super highway communi- cating with naval hospitals and other ships at sea with almost instantanetius voice, data and video. This has vastly improved patient care and specialty coverage by extending the circle of expert consultants.

Quirk Navigator Navigation department is responsible for the skillful and safe navigation of the ship. Constant vigilance for ships and natural obstacles, and reliable visual communications with other ves- sels and shore stations. Although, one of the smallest depart- ments onboard ABRAHAM LINCOLN, its responsibilities are enormous. Throughout the strenuous work-up cycles and the 1995 WESTPAC Arabian Gulf Deployment this department provided safe navigation over more than 50,000 nautical miles. Accuracy of navigation is paramount, especially in the Arabian Gulf during Southern Watch operations. This small group of Quartermasters and Signalmen utilize all known methods from star reading, flash signaling, to the most up-to-date instruments available to guide ABRAHAM LINCOLN anywhere in the world. Additionally, Navigation Department is responsible for setting the stage and ensuring traditional methods of military protocol are followed during all ceremonial events. 5 - 1 » NN Quartermasters QM ' s are the ultimate resource for infor- mation regarding the ship ' s position at any time or place in the world. They are respon- sible to the Navigator for the safe navigation of the ship. QM ' s maintain world charts. Navi- gational aids and records of the ship ' s log. They plot the ship ' s position by use of radars, satellites or visual bearings and ranges, they also can plot the ship by the relative positions of the stars. Quartermasters also man Helm, Lee Helm and After Steering watchstations during Special Sea and Anchor details and underway replenishments. We have but one motto, " Trust your helm to those who wear the wheel.

Communications by signals is especially im- portant when the ship is operating in a condition of restricted electronic emissions. Also, they assist the bridge team to identify and track unknown vessels in visual range. So when you look up to the Signal Bridge and see some sailors waving their arms rapidly, and laughing at what seems to be nothing, don ' t worry, it ' s only the signalmen cioing what they enjoy - communicating at the speed of light.

As a result of the extensive variance in expertise required to accomplish its numerous tasks. Ops is divided into 9 divisions which function in concert with other departments throughout the ship, the air wing, and embarked staffs. Air Operations is responsible for the positive control and safety of all aircraft during launch and recovery in the control zone surrounding Abraham Lincoln. Through coordination of specialized warfare modules and associated sensors, the Combat Direction Center tracks all air, surface and subsurface contacts, standing ready to direct ABRAHAM LINCOLN ' S defense systems and aircraft against real or simulated threats to the Lincoln Battle Group. The Intelligence Center supports this operation by providing timely information on current military political events, development interpretation of photographic recon- naissance, as well as briefing and debriefing of all air wing aircrews. The Meteorological Office keeps the battle group informed of current and impending weather conditions by means of sensitive instnmients, weather ballons and satellite information. Srike Operations coordinates all long and short range planning for the ship including drafting of the daily air plan. 14G T Meteorology AerologN ' D ision ' s mission is twofold: to proxide for the safety of operations tlwough accurate analysis and forecasts of atmospheric and «eanic conditions; and to ensure the best employment of ba ttle group wea pons and sensor svTstems sensiti vc to the environment. Affectionally knovMi as " Metro " , the weather offia cxxupies prime real estate high up in the island overlooking the flight deck and soirrounding ocean. Aewgrapher ' s Mates (AG ' s) receive coded weather and oceanographic data over 200 times a day for thoiLsands of locations throughout the world. Obsen-en; track and report local conditions 24 houis a day Data from weather satellites orbiting at an altitude of 22 miles are received every 15 minutes. Weather Killoons launched daily from the ship »k able to sample the temperature, pa-ssure and humidity of the atinosphew up to an altitude of SOjXW feeL i3atli 1hermograph probes are able to measure the acoustic characteristics of the ocean to a depth of over l,tX)0 feet. Duh ' forecasters, using scientific expertise and years of experience, assimilate the large volumes of infomiation and supply supprt packages tailored to the specific needs of each warfare commander. Tl e ABRAHAM LINCOLN ' S weather office has the advantage of having the single most modem suite of support equipment of any warship in the world, rivaling even the most technical shore-based facilities.

Halsall Reactor Officer The mission of Reactor department is summed up in the words, Lincoln Power and Light. Reactor department is responsible for the ship ' s two A4W type pressurized water reactors and four steam driven main engines. Utilizing state of the art equipment, twin nuclear reactor plants and the top operators in the fleet, Reactor Department provides the means to propel the ship from the shores of the United States to any point in the world. Along the way, the department generates and regulates all electrical power utilized throughout the ship and provides the water necessary for washing aircraft, showers, laundry, cooking and many other daily tasks. Reactor Department is manned by a combination of nuclear and conventionally-trained men from four ratings; Machinist ' s Mates, Electrician ' s Mates, Electronic ' s Technicians and Enginemen. Yeomen also serve within the department to maintain the enormous amount of paper work necessary to run this 400 man department. ' 166 ' 1P J.M u M Machinery Machinery (M) Division is the engineering " muscle and might " of the ABRAHAM LINCOLN. Moving a warship which displaces as much as 106,000 tons is a daunting task. Moving it at over 30 nautical miles per hour and sustaining that speed for long periods is monumental. Doing that and providing the services we all take for granted is a job only M division is suited to. Their mission is to make the ship move through the water at any speed at any time. While providing electrical power for all of the systems throughout the ship, potable water for drinking, cooking and cleaning, auxiliary steam and firemain pressure to deal with emergency situations they work with such profes- sionalism and continuity that their shipmates can take them for granted. 1 s I I liimphr,- CVVO: R T L.ilrenii-rri.- MMCS(SW) JR.

Reactor Department supports the ABRAHAi l LINCOLN ' S mission by pro- viding propulsion, electrical power, service steam , low and high pressure air. RC Division ' s part in this mission is the continuous monitoring of the reactors around-the- clock. Additionally, they are responsible for maintain- ing all of the instrumentation and control equipment that directly supports the operation of the reactors. These technicians are highly trained, with nearly two years of training before they report onboard ABR-AHAM LINCOLN. Once they report on board, it is over one year before fliey complete all of the qualifications necessary to stand die watch responsible for operation and moiii- toring of the reactor.

Peery Reactor Training (RT) Division is at all times the largest and most diverse division within Reactor Department. Consisting of all reactor ratings, the staff of RT Division pro-vides the stepping stone for new arrivals into Reactor Department. Students learn theory and practical knowledge of reactor plant op- erations. Once completed with their Basic Nuclear Engineering Qualifications, the students transfer to the challenges of their respective divisions within the department. Qualifications and training do not stop after their " stint " in RT Division. The RT staff is responsible for drafting, administering and grading examinations for individual watchstation quahfica- tions. The RT staff also acts as the " core " of the Propulsion Plant Drill Team, running simulated ca- sualties on the propulsion plant watchstanders, pre- paring them for an Operational Reactor Safeguard Examination, or for actual casualties.

Torpedoman ' s Mates (TM) and Yeomen (YN) who are responsible for providing ordnance to Air Wing 11 squadrons. These 275 people are divided into six different divisions and an EOD detachment. As speciahsts in " Urban Re-Development, Custom Landscaping and Population Control " , the sailors of Weapons Department have won the coveted Black " W " award for Ordnance Excellence for the past 2 years. Ti-ieir various talents really came into play during Operation Southern Watch in the North Arabian Gulf as they built ordnance, sent it via weapons elevators to " The Roof " and armed de-armed it. The Gunner ' s Mates played an important part in Operation Southern Watch as well, manning machine guns during the passage through the Straits of Hormuz to protect the ship from the potential floating mine and small boat threat. , »«lfc.».»».,— ' »ii 90 ■f 1 I nti " ITS . fc. : ••tSSfl I f;s£i«» C G-1 Flight Deck The Primary mission of the flight deck ordnancemen is to provide the airvving with sufficient ordnance to carry out the day ' s flight schedule. Receiving missiles, bombs, cartridges and pyrotechnics from the maga- zines below, they issue them to the various squadrons to load onto their aircraft. During emergency situations G-1 mans fire hoses in the " Bomb Farm " weapons staging area on the starboard side of the island structure. In case of personnel casualties we use the upper stage weapons elevators to send wounded personnel below to medical. They also help " Strike below " mail and parts on short notice so that flight operations can continue on sched- ule.

Nutwell assumed command of Com- mander, Carrier Group Three from Rear Adm. Jay B. Yakeley during cermonies held aboard USS Abraham Lincoln, July 4, 1995. The change of command took place in the carrier ' s foc ' sle, and occurred while Abraham Lincoln was visiting the port of Jcbel All, Uiuted Arab Emirates. The Navy ' s change of command ceremony is a time-honored tradition which formally restates the continuity of command to thf officers, men, and women of a command. The ceremony is a formal ritual conducted before the assembled company of the command and is unique in the world today. It is the transfer of total responsibility, authority, and accountability from one Indi- vid ual to another. It is structured such that a ship or shore-based command is never, even for a moment, without a commander. From the moment a unit is commissioned, until the moment it is decommissioned, there is one unbroken line of command. The COMCARCRU Three change of command ceremony included a musical prelude; the playing of the National Anthem, an invocation by CDR Robert F.Milewski, Command Chaplain; remarks by Major Gen. Donald E. Loranger, Jr., USAF-the ceremony ' s guest speaker; remarks and the reading of transfer iirders by Rear Adm. Yakeley; the presentation of the personal tlai; by MMCM Michael J.

The mission of the squadron is to aggressively gain and effectively maintain control of the electromag- netic spectrum in order to maintain air superiority in any given theater. VAQ1.13 maintains, supports and flies the Grumman EA-6B " Prowler " aircraft. The Prowler ' s ALQ-W is sophisticated electronic surveillance and electronic countermeasures system. This system, along with the USQ-1 13 communications suite, allows the Prowler to receive and jam enemy radar systems and communicatons. The ability of the Prowler to accurately exploit the electromagnetic spectrum make it the premier platform to shoot the High Speed Anti-Radiation (HARM) Missile. The ALQ-99 system along with the USQ- 113 and HARM missile enables the Prowler to protect Airwing and Joint Strike groups from enemy radars and weapon systems. The squadron consists of approximately 2S officers and 170 enlisted personnel. Each person is assigned to one of five departments: Administration, Maintenance, Operations, Safety and Electronic Warfare. The aircrew ol the Prowler is composed of a pilot and three Electronic Countermeasuring Officers (ECMO ' s). The ECMO ' s are trained to be a co-pilot, when occupying the right front seat, and to operate the sophisticated electronic systems when occupying the two back seats. Our unique capabilities make VAQ-135 an integral and essential element of the ABRAI I AM LINCOLN, Battle Group and Air Wing U. LCDR W.F. Danella LCDR j.M.

Keuhlen CDR Nicholas A. Trongale J The " Wallbangers " of Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron One Hundred Seventeen (VAW-117) are home based at NAS Miramar, San Diego, CA. They fly the Grumman E-2C Group 11 " Hawkeye " . The Squadron was estabUshed at NAS North Island, CA. on July 1 , 197? and deployed to the Mediterranean Sea aboard USS Independence (CV-62) in October of that same year. The squadron made its first WestPac onboard USS Ranger (CV-61) in February 1979. After a West Coast record of over 2,000 flight hours the Wallbangers captured the triple crown of the AEW community winning the 1984 CNO Safety Award, Battle " E " , and AEW Excellance Award. In 1990 the Wallbangers transitioned to the Grumman E-2C Plus and participated in a joint C inadian exercise " Maple Flag ' 90 " , before joining ABRAHAM LINCOLN for her maiden voyage around the horn. The onset of Operation Desert Storm led to a rapid work up and deployment in 1991 . Returning from Operation Southern Watch, VAW-117 deployed to Panama in support of counter-drug operations before starting workups for WestPac 1993 After accumlating 1,750 flight hours in suppKirt of Operation Southern Watch the Wallbangers provided Air Traffic Control Services for over 400 aircraft daily, in support of Operation Restore Hope in Somalia. Once agaui, V AW-1 1 7 won the triple crown with the 1993 CNO Safety Awadr, Battle " E " , and the AEW Excellance Award. Upgrading to the Grumman E-2C Group II in 1994, the Wallbangers participated in the joint exercise " Roving Sands ' 94 " prior to commencing work ups for WestPac 199 1 with CVW-11 aboard the ABRAHAM LINCOLN.

Clemente 1995 marks the forteith anniversary of the commissioning of the World Famous Fighting BlackHons of VF-213. The Blacklions began in 1 955 flying the F-2H3 Banshee out of N AS Moffet Field. In the forty years since then, the Lions have deployed to locations all over the world, and have transitioned to many different aircraft types, including the F-4D Skyray, the F-3H2 Demon, and the renowned F-4 Phantom II. Today, under the command of CDR Fred " Killer " Killian, the Blacklions are flying the F-1 4A Tomcat, arguably the most lethal air interceptor in the world. The Tomcat carries a wide variety of air-to-air missiles, including the Sidewinder, Sparrow and the AIM-54C Phoenix. in addition to the air-to-air role, the F-14 also serves as the carrier ' s only aerial reconnaissance platform. Equipped with the TARPS (Tactical Air Reconnaissance Pod System) pod, the Tomcat is capable of providing near-real-time photographic data of targets of interest to the carrier battle group. The Tomcat is also an air-to-ground platform, capable of delivering a wide variety of ordnance in support of ground operations. Clearly the multi-role capability of the F-14, combined with the operational flexibility of the ABRAHAM LINCOLN, helps make the Fighting Blacklions one of the most versatile and effective strike fighter squadrons in the wcirld today. i " BLACKLIONS f LCDRJ.S Bates LCDR J.C Frislachi LCDR KJ.

In 199] the Fighting Redcocks were part of the CVN-72 CVW-1 1 team during the ABRAHAM LINCOLN ' S maiden voyage participating in the Mt. Pinatubo evolution. VFA-22 made histon, ' again by becoming the first squadron to deploy with the AIVl-120 (Advanced Medium Range Air to Air Missile) AMRAAM. May of 1 994 was another milestone for the Redcocks as they became the first West coast sqnadnMi to receive women for dutv in a combat deplovable squadron. LT T M Cle-.en LT G.N.

Pasztalaniec The Mighty Shrikub wore established in 1952 it NAS Alamedd. As Attack Squad- n)n Nine Four the Shrikes flew the A-4 Skyha wk and A-7 Corsair 11. Since June 1 990, VFA-94 has excelled in forward power projection flying the single seat F A-18C 1 lornet. The Shrikes boast a distinguished history of excellence. Betwwen 1964 and 1973, Attack Squadron 94 completed seven consecutive combat deployments to Southeast Asia. VA-94 led the first major Naval bombing strikes into North Vietnam, as well as the bombing of Haiphong Harbor. After joining CVW-1 1 in 1982, the Shrikes became the first single-engine tactical aircraft squadron to transit the Pacific from the I ' hillippines to the United States, and supported Hh ciperations against Libya. In 19HH, the Lemoore, Ca. based squadron was instrumental in the sinking of the Iranian frigate Sahand during the first major U.S. naval battle since WWil. Since receiving Lot XII Hornets in June 1990, VFA-94 has completed all three ABRAHAM LINCOLN deployments. The Shrikes, an indispensable component of the CVW-1 l CVN-72 team, have continuously been at the forefront of key U.S. militarv operations. Among these have been enforcement of UN imposed sanctions following Operation Desert Storm, evacuation of homeless civilians from the Phillippines during Operation Fiery Vigil, enforcement of UN imposed No-Fly Zone, ,ind Imm.inilariaii assistance in Somalia i CDR Matt J.

Operating only two aircraft, with eight officers and forty-five of the hardest-charging troops to be found, Det Bravo holds all the responsibili- ties and has experienced the successes of a fuU-si ed squadron. Whether at work or at play, the Sea Shadows demonstrate the enthusiasum and professionalism, surpassed by none. The mission of VQ-5 is to provide tactical electronic reconnaissance to the Battle Group Commander. Specific missions might include Indica- tions and Warnings (I W); Command, Control and Communication (C3); Over-the-1 lori .on Targeting (OTI I-T) and passive Electronic War- fare (EW) in supporting a full range of naval operations. The Sea Shadows fulfill this mission by operating the Lockheed ES-3A, a modi- fied S-3 with advanced avionics systems.

Deployed aboard the USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN, the det serves as a linkpin in the supply of critical parts, personnel and mail throughout all tlu ' aters of operation. With a range in excess of 1000 nautical miles, the COD can maintain contact with the shore for all but a few days of cruise. VRC-30 flies the Gruman C-2A Greyhound. Sister to the Hawkeye, the plane is designed to maximize room for cargo and passengers and still fit onto an aircraft carrier. Flown by two pilots and a loadmaster and an intlight-plane captain in the " back end " , the plane is capable of not only carrying cargo and passengers, but also doing paradrops, special warfare operations, search and rescue and SSC. The airaaf t are kept in the air by a small contingent of maintenance personnel . With under fifty people in the entire det, each and every " maintainer " is an integral part of the VRC-30 team.

Since their maiden deployment in 19bl aboard USS Kcarsarge, VS-29 has seen duty on a number of aircraft carriers, and been involved in many hot-spots including theCulf of Tonkin during the War in Vietnam, the Republic of the I ' hillipines during Operation Fierv Vigil when Mount I ' inatubo erupted, The Persian C.uU during Operation Southern Watch and Somalia during Operation Restore Hope. The history of the Dragonfires reads a bit like a glimpse into Who ' s Who in aviation milestones. In 1462 and n3 they assisted in the recovery of the Mercury space capsules. They were the first squadron of Vikings deployed to the Western Pacific. Thev were the " First Vikings around the world " on the USS Carl Vinson.

It is no wonder that, as Abraham Lincoln spends a final month in Alamevla following its return trom deployment, its Sailors and Marines will be found ever vhere. getting a final glimpst of this monumental region. Alfred HitchciKk, whose movie, ' The Birds. " was filmed here, once admittal. ' ii 1 uld be n.i)uiri ' d to film all my films in one location, it would certainly be San Francisco ' I . : i n The modern Navy sliip is no different than the first vessel that put to sea in ancient times; It requires repair and upkeep, becai.ise the sea is a harsh mistress — on Sailors and on the ships that tliev sail. Following a standdown at the end of its ls ' 93 deployment, Ahraliam Lincobi began, in early } ' 4, a period of selected restricted availabilit) ' , or SRA, which enabled much-needed work to be completed aboard. Sailors and Marines put away their seafaring jobs and took over the administration and implementation of getting an aircraft carrier ready (or future workups and a six- mt)nth deployment. Upgrading equipment, resurfacing flight deck and hangar bay non-skid, repairing machinery and rerouting cables and wires — along vsith a major repainting and retiling project — all made for a busy three month SRA. Con mercial and Navy contractors who speciaUze in pierside repair of sl ips were brought alxiard to do much of the actual work, yet Sailors got involved in every process as well, whether standing firewatch while a welder showered sparks into an adjoining space or as a computer data-entry yeoman keeping track of the multifaced work which went on e ' ery day. Some Abraham Lincoln Sailors manned working parties hauling new equipment aboard, while others could be found working aloft or over the side. As May 1994 arrived, hoses, cables, wires, tools, powerboxes, ropes, pamt and contractors began to slowly go away. At last, what was revealed was an aircraft carrier that had betm refLubished and k oked e ' crv incli a Legend, _1L.

' ' Irst t e Following nearly five months in port, Abraham Lincoln slipped it ' s moorings at NAS Alameda and went to sea off the coast of California to conduct post-SRA Sea Trials. The carrier was put through its paces during major evolutions, such as high-speed rudder and steering checks, and testing of the counter-measure washdown system— used to rid the skin of the ship of contamination from nuclear, chemical or biological agents. Sailors checked to ensure their spaces were seaworthy by securing anything that would tend to roll, fall or become a missile hazard as the ship heeled over during high-speed turns. The test of a mariner ' s ability to " secure for sea " came during the actual events, and many learned the laws of physics regard- ing objects at rest and center of gravity during such evolutions. During the at-sea period, VADM Spane, Commander, Naval Air Forces Pacific Fleet, came aboard to present the Battle " E " to the crew. Once again, Abraham Lincoln was recognized for being the most battle-ready carrier on the west coast. It was an auspicious beginning to a long period of workups which would ready the carrier and it Sailors for the 1995 deployment.

' .(I. -ill, 359 ■ fsci i, Like a body-builder, Abraham Lincoln exercised over a nine month period, taking aboard those ingredients necessary tor a warship to become healthy and fit. A rigorous program of daily Ruitine tested the carrier ' s ability to rehiel at sea, fuel and fly aircraft, maintain watertight inlegrit) ' , operate major and auxiliary equipment, take on and strike below provisions and ready stores, steam and maneuver at different speeds, keep support equipment and veliides operational, and generate power with its reactor plants. A primary part of the work-ups was the ability of the ship to bounce back from injury suffered during battle. General Quarters drills and major, scenario-driven, wartime exercises challenged the ship ' s repair lockers and damage control systeins, placing just the right amoimt of stress on those parts of the ship wfuch would need to endure tlie stnsses of battle. Like the muscle groups - right down to individual sinews - Ab raham Lincoln Sailors and Marines were the major component of the carrier ' s exeaise program. Both knowlege and experience came together in a coordinated training program to bring the various skill levels of newly-reported personnel into line with the requirements for arduous duty at sea. People, working together, grew stronger and more unified at even, ' lest, forging a formidable team of men and women who sttxxl ready, willing and able to meet any situation tlie modem Navy requires of its members. Ultimately, Abraliam Lincoln was ready to begin the last pha.se of its pre-deployment dev ' elopment, the integration of ils formidable capabilities with an entire carrier battle group. Exercises were conducted on a multi-ship level to produce a fighting force able to cover conflicts and contingencies ans ' vvhere in tlie world.

Every year, Seattle hosts a party to recognize it ' s maritime heritage. They call it " Seafair " . USS Abraham Lincoln and Battle Group Foxtrot called it one of the best weeks of fun, food and frolicking in recent memory- I magine, if you will, the biggest block party you ' ve ever attended and then expand it to cover an entire city the size of Seattle. Throw in about 1 0,000 Sailors, a parade through the streets and hvdrofoil races on the lake, and you have Seafair. It takes a great city to attempt a celebra- tion of this magnitude. Seattle not only pulled it off, they set the mark that will long stand as what a celebration should be. The city of Seattle held open its arms and welcomed ships from the United States, Canada and Mexico. Any sailor who walked down the street alone did so by choice. It seemed that everyone offered a warm smile, a friendly greet- ing and often a cool drink. The ship ' s MWR office did a superb job of arranging various sight-seeing tours, horse- back riding, amusement park trips and even a jaunt across the border into British Columbia. If you weren ' t out looking for a night spot but preferred the peace and quiet of a home cooked meal and a quiet chat by the fireside there was the Adopt-A-Sailor program where families took in sailors and marines and made them part of the family for the week. USS Abraham Lincoln hosted a gala event herself . Presentations were made from the city to the ships and from the ships to the city. Warm wishes and early welcomes were the bill of fare and the mood was one of comraderie. The evening concluded with the Marine De- tachment providing an inspired performance t)f a " Sunset Review. " Their silent drill team ' s execution, under the direction of Lcpl Thorn, left the audience in silent awe. To say that " a good time was had by all " would insult the affair by understatement. It is safe to say that, after this visit, a lot of shipmates are looking forward to the change of home port from the S.F. bay area to Washington.

While onboard, guests had a picnic in the hangar bays with their Sailors and Marines. Hamburgers, hot dogs, " bug " juice and potato chips made up the traditional Navy picnic fare. The excursion was an eye-opener for some who had never been aboard a Navy ship before, and who had never seen the fast-paced work that happens aboard a carrier. The opportunity for Abraham Lincoln crewmembers to share this knowledge with friends and family continues to be of prime importance to provide better untierstanding of all aspects of the Navy ' s mission.

Com- murvity support through awareness of Abraham Lincota ' s capabilities is achieved through a variety ' of means, including an aruiual celebra- tion of Pacific Fleet ships, called Fleet Week. Fleet Week 1995 featured communit ' relations programs which invited Sailors and Marines to participate in several planned events, both recreational and ceremonial. Sports and entertainment played a key role in mtegrating the Naw with the corrvmunity, as chd tours of various ships and speeches by both military and civiUain dignitaries. The high point of Fleet Week was a parade of ships. Tlie flotilla included the Third Fleet flagship, USS Coronado, the final member of the World War Two hberty fleet, USS Jeremiah O ' Brien, USS Abraham Lincoln, the submarine, USS Pasadena, and others. More than 1,100 distinguished guests embarked aboard the carrier during the parade of ships. Abraham Lincoln ' s big show of seapower came with the first-ever launching of hvo F A-18 aircraft from her flight deck while slowly steaming through San Francisco Bay. Following the launch, Abraham Lincoln and other shifts anchored in the bay to watch an air show wWch included aerobatics from civilian racing and stunt planes. The entire bay was then treated to a mihtary air show by tlie world-famous Blue Angels who effectively demon- strated the leading edge of Naval air superiority as they perfonned mid-air maneuvers in their Honiets with wingtip to wingtip precision. The entire Fleet Week celebration demonstrated a reciprocal appre- ciation which both the military and the civiUan communities have for each other. Military capabUity, balanced by community awareness , remains the most effective way of maintaining the freedoms and traditional values that America represents.

" " ERT REPS UNR =1REPS v Vertical and underway replenishments are the primary method of bringing cargo, fuel, food, aircraft parts — and sometimes people, aboard the carrier while it is operating at sea. Replenishing a vessel the size of Abraham Lincoln can sometimes be a challenge — as life at sea always is. Underway replenishments require the experience of many individuals working to- gether as a team, whether rigging fuel hoses, steering the ship, manning a vital communica- tions link, maintaining tension lines, or simply staying out of the way of the many crews in the hangar bay. In the months between SRA and the 1995 deployment, the ship conducted 10 fuelings at sea, where Abraham Lincoln received fuel, and four more where the carrier delivered it to another vessel. Numerous replenishments of supplies were conducted over the same period. m - 4 » t)posilc rj,m.-. l.ip left: I ' Al " : Palton and i B Cl.irk hook up .1 mc Siige line for a I ' ueling rig.

The city offers many recreational, cultural and entertainment opportunities to its visitors. Abraham Lincoln visited San Diego more than once during its workups, mooring pierside at Coronado. The visits allowed a closer interface with Third Fleet commands, as well as providing Sailors and Marines with liberty ashore. From Balboa Park Zoo to Disneyland, from Trolley rides to excursions south of the border in Tiajuana, crewmembers took full advantage of Southern California ' s recreational opportu- nities.

Sailors, fuel hoses and support equipment, can look like the busiest place in the world. That is because it just may be. Jet aircraft launching and landing continually add danger to the mix. When viewed from " vulture ' s row " on the island, the flight deck activities resemble some chaotic ballet. The entire operation consists of more than 150 SaUors working together to make sure the " birds " are launched and recovered safely. Flight operations usually take place between 1130 and 2330. In that time, the ship will launch between 80 and 100 aircraft, track each bird ' s mission and recover each and every one. Additionallv, helicopters circle and maneuver continuously over and around the carrier. When the planes are finished with their missions, the day is still not done. Fifteen minutes after the last plane touches down on deck, planning for the next day ' s opera- tions go into effect. Aircraft are positioned on the flight deck in a routine " spotting " operation which involves a complicated set of parking areas. Once positioned, the aircraft are closely inspected, thoroughly washed down and carefully maintained. Dav after day at sea, men and women who live on " the roof " work relentless hours to conduct flight opera- tions aboard USS Abraham Lincoln. The mission of any carrier boils down to keeping planes in the air, whether for reconnaissance, defensive postures or assertive interdiction.

Tours also tixik Sailors to the Lantau Island Monastery, where they uitness the world ' s largest outdoor bronze Buddlia. Other sights may have twn mon: attractive than tours to some servicemembers. A variety of mghtdubs and British-style pubs could be found simply by walking through the Wan Chai dishict in Hong Kong or taking the Star Ferry across the busy harbor to Kowkwa Famous watering holes such as Ricks and the KangariX) pub were attractions worth investigation. Hong Kong had an unbelievable number of eating establishments, from fine-dining restaurants to familiar fast-food. Tlie different cuisines ranged from tremendous local dishes, such as Chiu Chow and Dim Sum, to hamburgers, chicken and pizza. The ' Tearl of the Orient " satisfied Abraham Lincob Sailors and Marines enough to qualify as a terrific first bberty port during deployment.

Whether tours, hotel vouchers, sporting events, ship ' s parties or entertainment shows, MWR is the key to enjoying port visits overseas. The chance for a Sailor to get away for a few days in Hong Kong was offered through MWR- sponsored trips to many area tourist attractions, including a glimpse of monastery Ufe on Lantau Island where a giant Buddha peers from a mountaintop and chants and incense drifted on the air. Other MWR opportunities were more far- reaching, such as a hydrofoil trip to Maccao or a two- day excursion into China. When Abraham Lincoln visited Singapore, the marvelous sights and sounds of the Lion City were made available through tours and trips. Sailors were able to visit oriental gardens, zoos, preserves and nearby islands, thanks to MWR. Once the battle group found its way throught the Straits of Hormuz, one might expect that the opportunities offered by MWR might dry up in the desert. Not so, for experiences not so common, not so familiar to many Sailors, awaited. From camel rides to safaris through the desert at sunset; from ships ' s parties at plush hotels to traditional Arab banquets in the sand; from swim call in deep oasis pools to ski-fests down the slopes of sand dunes — MWR offered everything from the exotic to the downright different. Ultimately, the MWR services provided to Abraham Lincoln Sailors cost very little in terms of the return on a crewmember ' s discount investment in fun, trips, tours and activities.

Certainly it is one of the most cosmopolitan. Certainly it is a friendly atmosphere for the U.S. Sailor on liberty. Indulge in the " Lion City " — taste its delicious foods, experi- ence its amusement parks, savor the night life and take converuent transit to the city ' s many sights and sounds. Singapore is an island where pirates once fought for control of the surrounding seas. The legend says that " blood flowed like water in full flood and the Singapore plains are red to this day. " Transportation in Singapore is no problem at all, with the most modern subway system in the world. If you wish alternative transpor- tation, buses, taxis, rental cars or even a trishaw, or tricycle. Singapore ' s elegant hotels and high class accommodations are what make this island an exclusive spot for tourism. The city officers the best bargains on antiques, clothing, electronics, jewelry and a host of other shopping items. Bargaining is the key to getting a good deal in this friendly city. Singapore also boasts a smorgasbord of the world ' s finest cuisines. It is a mecca for curries from India and spicy Chinese, a place where Asian tastes mingle to provide a taste experience unlike any- where else in the world. Of course, the die-hard American palette can be satisfied at various fast-food establishments, from McDonalds to Kentuckv Fried Chicken. Intriguing parks and gardens, the Science Center and the National Museum of Art are showcase exhibits of culture and knowl- edge. Singapore ' s entertainment value is high, with modern night clubs, theaters, cultural shows and pubs that are main attractions for those who enjoy the night life. Tlie Mer-Lion, located in Singapore ' s Merlion Park, volcomes visitors to its city.

A different culture is there to be found among the dunes and date palms. If you can manage the heat, which ranges in the lOO ' s, and humidity, which runs nearly that high, then you can learn about a people who are, in many ways, so different that it is easy to belie ' e that you ' re literally half wav around the world. However, there are other things about them which would make you swear that you were just down the block. The shopping is a great example with the convenience of a fully modern shopping mall just walking distance from traditional " Souqs " or shopping areas. They have a spice souq, a mercantile souq, an electronic souq but the most popular is probablv the gold souq. The prices are nearly impossible to believe. The State sets the price for the gold content but you bargain with the jeweler on the cost of work- manship. Even if you walk awav without buy- ing a thing the sight of all of the gold and the gamesmanship of the pricing are well worth the trip. For those ad enturous souls among the crew, who wanted to see the real Arabia, there were tours arranged to take you out into the desert for camel rides and sand skiing, or to the shore for sailing and water skiing. There were tours to the mountains of Hujin and Hajjar, the beaches of Umm Al Qiwain and Khorfakkan, as well as the dunes of Hatta and Al Awir. MWR also aranged for a number of ship- mates to get their scuba qualifications. Scuba. ...in the desert? Whv not? You ' ve heard of sand sharks ha en ' t you? Five trips into Jebel Ali gave the crew ample time to sample the local culture but the weather gave them little time to catch their breath.

Ouring all ot our visits to Jebel Ali we were entertained with live music on the pier. Some of our sailors took the opportunity, while here, to take scuba classes in hopes of diving in Australia. The transportahon of choice was a number of busses hired by MWK running from The Dubai Metro Hotel to points of interest throughout Dubai.

The environment found in this steel city requires constants attention to all duties. A moment of carelessness or inattention can prove fatal. From the nuclear reactors, to ordnance laden aircraft, the potential for catastrophe is always present. That old saying " an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure " holds true, contingency training for potential mishaps saves lives. A sailor must react instinctively in a crisis. When an aircraft engine catches fire the Crash and Salvage crew cannot pull out the fire fighting manuals, should an UNREP ship have a steering casualty the emer- gency break away procedures should be reflexive. The USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN, CVW-n team responded flawlessly when danger reared its head. From the fire on the flight deck to the collision with the USS SACRAMENTO the response from the respective emergency crews was remarkable. The photos found on these two pages pay tribute to those to truly heroic individuals who saved lives and mini- mized damage to the USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN in real life emergencies. V ' ■ y i .?S " " - m In the Foc ' sle of ABRAHAM LINCOLN; while in port Jebel Ali, United Arab Emirates; Captain Richard J. Nibe changed command with Captain Robert F. Willard.

Also in attendance was, Captain Gillespie, Com- mander Carrier Air Wing Eleven; staff of Carrier Group Three and all Carrier Air Wing Eleven Commanding and Executive Officers. The August 22 event was followed by a formal reception in the wardroom. Upon RADM (Sel.) Nibe ' s departure, all ABRAHAM LINCOLN Officers assembled in the hanger bay to bid their last farewells. RADM (Sel.) Nibe moved on to the United States Space Command (USSPACECOM), Colorado Springs, Colorado.

During the return to Alameda from the Persian Gulf Sailors and Marines of Abraham Lincoln said Aloha to the sunnv state of Hawaii for five fun-filled days. Many of the surfers, professional and first timers, hit the famous Waiidki beach and the infamous North Shore to test their balance of nerves and characters as they tried to catch that perfect wave. For those that wem ' t looking for the adrenaline-msh- trom-Hell, Hawaii offered many shopping and scenic opportunities for the tourist in ail of us, as well as sunny beaches to swim and relax and let the stress float away with each crash of the waves. The gorgeous sunsets set the tone for the exciting Hawaiian nightlife. Many crewmembers had the opportu- nity to experiece an authentic Hawaian luau. If eating roast pig and watching guys in grass skirts twirl flaming batons didn ' t fit your taste, the many nightclubs and taverns provided all the fun and relaxation you could fit into one night.

Never is this more true tlian when part of the family at home Is a child whom he ' s never met. Concerns for the healthandwelfareof his wife and newborn child often tend to monopolize liis thoughts. Stili a sailor must remember why he ' s out there, persevere and perform his duties in a professional manner.

The USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN ' S OMBUDSMAN offices offer military spouses a variety of ser ' ices, answering questions, acting as advisors and contacting the ship for spouses without the " red tape " . Established to act as liaison between the command and the military spouse, our OMBUDSMAN office was there when needed.

She said, " Lord, you seem to be having a lot of trouble this cne. What ' s wrong with the standard model? " The Lord replied, " Have you seen the specs on this order? She has to be completely independent, possess the qualities of both father and mother, be a perfect hostess to four or forty within an hour ' s notice, run on black coffee, handle every emergency imaginable without a manual, be able to carry on cheerfully, even if she is pregnant and has the flu, and she must be willing to move to a new location 10 times in 17 years. And oh, yes, she must have six pairs of hands. " The angel s hook her head. " Six pairs of hands? Noway. " The Lord continued, " Don ' t worry, we will make other military wives to help her. And we will give her an unusually strong heart so it can swell with pride in her husband ' s achievements, sustain the pain of separations, beat soundly when it is overworked and tired, and be large enough to say, ' I understand, ' when she doesn ' t, and saj ' , " I love you, ' regardless. " " Lord, " said the angel, touching His arm gently, " Go to bed and get some rest. You can finish this tommorrow. " " I can ' t stop now, " said the Lord. " I am so close to creating something unique. Already this model heals herself when she is sick, can put up six unexpected guests for the weekend, wave goodbye to her husband from a pier, a runway or a depot and understand why it ' s important that he leave. " The angel circled the model of the military wife, looked at it closely and sighed " It looks fine, but it ' s too soft. " " She might look soft, " replied the Lord, " but she has the strength of a lion You would not believe what she can endure. " Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek of the Lord ' s creation. " There ' s a leak, " she announced. " Something is wrong with the construction. 1 am not surprised that it has cracked. You are trying to put too much into this model. " The Lord appeared offended at the angel ' s lack of confidence. " What you see is not a leak, " He said. " It ' s a tear. " " A tear? What is it there for? " asked the angel. The Lord replied, " It ' s for joy, sadness, pain, disappointment, lonliness, pride and a dedication to all the values she and her husband hold dear. " " You are a genius! " exclaimed the angel. The lord looked puzzled and replied, " 1 didn ' t put it there.
