ANTIETAM arrived at Oahu in early August en routifc to Pearl Harbor and the weapons station at Lualualei as the sun was rising over Diamond Head. The stop in Hawaii was both the ship ' s first and final port of call during the WestPac Deployment. Although the time in Hawaii was dominated by the loading of armaments, and then by unloading on the return leg, the crew found time for much appreciated R R at the Naval Station and in Honolulu. Many Sailors visited the famous memorial of the Battle Ship Arizona, and toured the Battle Ship Missouri, anchored as a museum just south of the memorial.

While at sea, crews of U.S. Navy Combatant ships, like ANTIETAM, have very hectic schedules. The average crewman works about 14 hours a day. If the ship has to be re-provisioned and refueled or there are special evolutions those hours can go longer. Recognizing this tough daily routine, ships try to maintain a holiday routine on Sundays that allow among other things for the crew to sleep in to 0700 and an afternoon barbeque on the fantail. It is a time to relax with shipmates, maybe get in some fishing if the i ship can slow enough, unwind with some music from the ship ' s volunteer band, and get some sun. We affectionately call it " Steel Beach. " These are some views of a recent " Steel Beach " aboard i. ANTIETAM in the Phihppine Sea. --la;; — 9Mf K •dt : .. vi BBMBJcyMMilE iir ■«- . ■ . M ai:3diUon.

Today, AEGIS is the name of the most technologically advanced and most potent naval weapon system in the world. The core of ANTIETAM ' s superior war fighting capability is the AEGIS WEAPON SYSTEM and the heart of this AEGIS WEAPON SYSTEM is the 23 Fire Controlmen that comprises CM-division. CM-division is dedicated to maintaining the complex components of AEGIS to the peak of their design and then operating the system to the very limits of its capability. AEGIS integrates the individual weapons systems and electronic sensors from around the ship into a single, central combat system. These individual systems are then enhanced by the addition of the computer controlled AN SPY- 1 A phased array radar, a Command and Decision element to analyze the endless quantity of information and finally a sophisticated display system that organizes this dizzying quantity of data into usable information at the finger tips of ANTIETAM ' s watch standers.

Damage Controlmen (DC) perform the necessary work for damage control, which involves ship stability, fire fighting and chemical, biological and radiological (CBR) defense. As emergencies arise DCs are required to fill many key roles such as; fighting fires, dewatering Hooded spaces, and erecting shoring to support weakened bulkheads. DCs also make up a majority of the Rescue and Assistance team, who board vessels in distress to repair their casualties. i PCl lAWRENCE LOPEZ LTJG HELLER B .Tl EDWARD JAMES , C): ! f ii _ a .• .il : Jr -- DC3 MATH scon ' 3J ffffzjEJ ; F RIJRNFY m . m lj:-T-frs ■ 1 IC2 RO.

The purpose of these sanctions is to make sure that Iraq __ does not restore her capacity to make war on her neighbors and, most j importantly is not returning to a robust program of building weapons of mass destruction. Enforcing these sanctions have become increasingly more important as other forms of UN enforcement have ceased. One of the prime methods of funding these illegal activities is smuggling oil out of Iraq, around the UN " Oil for Food " Program. ANTIETAM spent two months as the " On Scene Commander " in the Northern Arabian Gulf recently -- executing this mission.
