She accomplishes the functions of sea control through her specialized configuration as an anti-subma- rine frigate, mounting a variety of electronic and acoustic sensors and weapons. AINSWORTH was named m honor of Vice Admiral Walden Lee Ainsworth, USN. It is the first ship ever to bear the name. Vice Admiral Ainsworth was a distinguished task force commander in the South Pacific Cam- paign of World War II and was known as " a destroyerman ' s destroyerman. " AINS- WORTH was built by Avondale Shipyards, Inc., of Westwego, Louisiana. She is the thir- teenth ship of the JOSEPH HEWES class of frigates. AINSWORTH was commissioned 31 March 1973 and is manned by 18 officers and more than 260 enlisted personnel. The ship is also capable of performing such other missions as patrol, search and rescue, block- ade, surveillance, shore bombardment, anti- submarine warfare, and anti-air warfare. AINSWORTH is outfitted with some of the most modern electronic equipment for de- tecting ships, submarines, and aircraft. Main features include the ship ' s three sonar sys- tems. One, mounted in the bow of the ship, is capable of gaining surface or subsurface contacts at extremely long ranges. The other two have variable depth capability and are towed astern. AINSWORTH ' S principal armament is the homing torpedo. Placed in the general vicin- ity of an enemy submarine, the torpedo will seek out and destroy its target. The three systems installed on the ship to deliver the torpedo to the target area include: over-the- side torpedo tubes, the ASROC (Anti-sub- marine rocket) launcher, and the LAMPS (Light Airborne Multi-Purpose System), a manned helicopter. Other major armament includes the 5 ' 754 rapid fire gun, having a primary purpose of anti-air and anti-surface warfare. It is also effective for shore bom- bardment in support of forces on beach- heads to several miles inland. The Harpoon anti-ship missile, with over-the-horizon ranges in excess of 50 nautical miles, adds significantly to AINSWORTH ' S fighting capability. In addition to these systems, AINSWORTH has the most up-to-date point defense system, the MK 15 Close-in Weapons System, designed to shoot down incoming missiles. AINSWORTH is powered by a single, five blade propellor driven by steam turbines de- veloping 35,000 shaft horsepower. Featuring automatic combustion control of her boilers, which operate a steam pressures of approxi- mately 1200 pounds per square inch, she is capable of speeds in excess of 27 knots. The ship is 440 feet long, 47 feet wide, with a Navigational Draft of 27 feet. Vice Admiral " Pug " Ainsworth 1886-1960 Vice Admiral Walden Lee Ainsworth Walden Lee Ainsworth was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on November 10, 1886. He graduated from the US. Naval Acad- emy in June 1910 and was commissioned Ensign on 7 March 1912. Selected to Flag Rank early in World War II, he was transferred to the Retired List and concurrently promoted to the rank of Vice Admiral on the basis of combat awards in 1948. Although ' much of his time at sea was spent in battleships and cruisers, Vice Admiral Ainsworth ' s " first love was destroyers. " These he com- manded in various capacities throughout his distinguished career — as ship ' s Captain, Squadron Commander, Flotilla Commander, Task Force Commander, and Type Commander. Aptly described as a " des- troyerman ' s destroyerman " by Theodore Roscoe in Destroyer Oper- ations in World War II , he was one of the outstandig bombardment task force commanders of the war in the Far East. " He was new to the South Pacific, " wrote historian Samuel Eliot Morison, " but he entered the arena as if he had been fighting ... all his life. " His exploits are written in the history of the Solomons, Marianas, Palous, and Leyte Campaigns. For these he was awarded the Navy Cross, Distinguished Service Medal, and Legion of Merit, and many of his ships received Navy Unit Commendations and Presidential Unit Creations. From 1945 until 1948 Vice Admiral Ainsworth served concurrently as Commandant Fifth Naval District and Commander Naval Operating Base, Norfolk, Virginia. He retired December, 1948 and died August 7, I960. He is buried at Arlington National Cemetery. Commanding Officer Commander Arthur B.

Pierce, Florida, were married September 26, 1970, and they reside with their two children, Caroline and David, in Virgmia Beach, Virginia. The Prestige, Privilege And The Burden Of Command By Joseph Conrad Only a seaman realizes to what extent an entire ship reflects the personality and ability of one individual, her Com- manding Officer. To a landsman that is not understandable, and sometimes it is even difficult for us to comprehend, but it is so. A ship at sea is a distant world in herself and in consideratin of the protracted and distant operations of the fleet units the Navy must place great power, responsibility and trust in the hands of those leaders chosen for command. In each ship there is one man who, in the hour of emergency or peril at sea, can turn to no other man. There is one who alone is ultimately responsible for the safe navigation, engineering per- formance, accurate gunfiring and morale of his ship. He is the Commanding Officer. He is the ship. This is the most difficult and demanding assignment in the Navy. There is not an instant during his tour of duty as Com- manding Officer that he can escape the grasp of command responsibility. His privileges in view of his obligation are most ludicrously small; nevertheless command is the spur which has given the Navy its great leaders. It is a duty which richly deserves the highest, time honored title of the seafaring world — " CAPTAIN " . ' J. Executive Officer Commander Randall R. Brown United States Navy Commander Randall R. Brown was born mjamestown. New York in February 1947. He attended the University of Alabama and graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration in June 1969. Following commissioning in September 1970 via Officer Candidate School in Newport, Rhode Island he reported aboard USS LA SALLE (LPD-4) as Combat Information Center Personnel Officer. He was re-toured aboard USS LA SALLE (AGF-3) as First Lieutenant when the ship changed homeports to Bahrain In June 1974 Commander Brown was assigned to Navy Recruiting District. San Antonio. Texas as an Officer Recruiter and later Enlisted Programs Officer. In February 1978 he attended Department Head School then reported to USS TRIPPE (FF- 1075) as Operations Officer in September 1978. Following that, in March 1981, he split toured to USS COONTZ (DDG-40) as Weapons Officer. His second shore tour commenced in February 1983 as Executive Officer, Navy Recruiting District Omaha Nebraska. From there he reported to his present assignment as Executive Officer USS AINSWORTH (FF-1090). Commander Brown ' s awards include: Navy Commendation Medal (two awards). Navy Achievement Medal, Meritorious Unit Commendation (NRD San Antonio), and Na- tional Defense Medal. Commander Brown and his wife, the former Linda Sue Arbogast of Charleston, West Virginia were married 6June 1971. and they reside in Virginia Beach. Virginia with their children Shannon and Eric. " The Executive Officer is the Hne officer next in rank to the captain. He has entire charge under the direction of the captain of all matters relating to the personnel, routine, and discipline of the ship. All orders issued by him are considered as coming direct from the captain and are obeyed as if the captain had issued them. " — The Bluejackets Manual 1943 iil Officers The officers: LTJG Shelter.

The growing realization that electronic warfare is the pri- mary means to integrate all other weapons systems to counter immediate threats has placed this application of electronics into sharp perspective. Electronic Warfare Tech- nicians operate and maintain electronic war- fare equipment. They also extract, interpret, and apply data from intelligence publica- tions, reports, and other documentation. In addition they evaluate, interpret, and deter- mine equipment capabilities and limitations, and evaluate, interpret, process, and apply intercepted signal data. They must inform responsible officers concerning the nature of threat signals and recommend appropriate countermeasures.

One of the major factors in the success of an operation is the accurate and speedy transmission of radio mes- sages. This is the job of the Radioman. Briefly, Radiomen transmit, receive, log, route, file, and maintain the security of messages. They advise responsible personnel on the capabilities, limita- tions, and condition of the equipment. They oper- ate typewriters and teletypewriters, and tune radio transmitters and receivers. In addition, Radiomen perform operational and preventive maintenance on communication equipment. OC Division 32 The execution of maneuvers at sea depends upon rapid and accurate communications. These important duties are performed by Signalmen who send and receive messages by flashing Ught, semaphore, and flag hoist, perform as lookout, and repair signal flags, pennants, and ensigns. f A The Signalmen: SM2 Reynolds, SM3 Ivy, SMl (SW) Campbell.

Yeo- men perform these office duties. Yeomen perform clerical, administrative, and secre- tarial duties ashore and afloat. They handle administrative dut-es in connection with of- ficers and their records. QM The safety of ships at sea depends to a great extent on skillful navigation, the vigilance with which lookouts for water traffic and natural obstacles is maintained. The Quar- termaster performs or assists in the perfor- mance of these duties. The Quartermaster steers the ship and performs navigation du- ties. They also correct charts and maintain navigation aids. The Quartermaster stands watch as assistant to the Officer of the Deck and to the Navigator. The Quartermaster also serves as petty officer in charge of yard and district -type craft. HM Much of the credit for the good health of Navy personnel is due to the work of Hospital Corps - men. They are the Navy ' s pharmacists, medical technicians, and first aid men. PC Postal Clerks operate Navy post offices, per- form postal counter work, process mail, and maintain directories and postal equipment. They prepare and file correspondonce relating to postal operations. NC Navy Counselors assist the command in orga- nizing and implementing an enlisted recruiting and retention program, and in evaluating the effectiveness of this program. They also super- vise and coordinate interview and counseling efforts. The Navy Counselor makes presenta- tions to civic groups, to naval personnel and their dependents on career opportunities in the Navy, and establishes and maintains liasion with the local civilian community. MA Masters-at-Arms perform security duties afloat and ashore including investigation, interrogation, appre- hension, corrections, and rehabilitation; enforce law and order to maintain military discipline; investigate incidents and offenses under their cognizance, involv- ing or occurring on government property or to per- sonnel subject to the LICMJ.

Regu- lar servicing of this payroll, financial transac- tions involved in procuring materials and services, selling surplus materials, and the related accounting functions require a large staff of accountants, bookkeepers, cashiers, and clerks. These workers include Navy Dis- bursing Clerks. Disbursing Clerks perform clerical duties relative to military pay re- cords, payroll certification sheets, money lists, public vouchers, transportation re- quests, meal tickets, allotments, allowances, saving deposits, and returns in the disbursing branch of supply departments. SK Navy ships requires a supply of clothing, spare parts, technical items, and other essen- tials. Providing and accounting for these materials are the main responsibilities of the Storekeeper. The Storekeeper performs cleri- cal and manual duties in the supply depart- ments relating to the procurement, stowage, preservation, packaging, and issuance of supplies of all kinds. SH Wherever Navy personnel may be. afloat or ashore, they can obtain the services and commodities available in civilian life — from having their hair cut, to purchasing soap and razor blades, to buying gifts. Those who render these services are the Ship ' s Service- men. Ship ' s Servicemen operate and manage ships stores, commissary stores, and Navy exchanges.

They also trans- fer, test, and take inventory ot fuels and water. m IC Communications systems throughout a Navy ship make a vital contribution to its operational efficiency. The operation and repair of the electronics devices us ed in the ship ' s interior communications systems, public address systems, electronic megaphones, and other announcing equipment are the responsibility of the Interior Communications Technician.
