SHIP ' S fflSTORY The ship was the first unit of Destroyer Squadron Eight to be built in the Todd Seattle shipyards. After commis- sioning and loadout in October 1981, she moved south to the Panama Canal and east to her new homeport of Mayport, Florida. Enroute visits to San Diego, Mazatlan and Manzanillo, Me.xico and Rodman, Panama provided rare sightseeing opportunities for an east coast unit. Shortly after arrival in Florida, ANTRIM rescued three Mayport fishermen whose boat had capsized and left them stranded in high seas for two days hanging on to floating debris. The winter of 1981-82 was spent in the Caribbean conducting shakedown training with FTG, Guantanamo Bay and undergoing other new combat systems ' trials. Virtually every evolution from missile firings to underway replenishment to helo operations were tested in detail. The crew enjoyed port visits to Nassau, Fredricksted, St. Croix and Ocho Rios, Jamaica before returning to Mayport. The summer of 1982 was spent in Bath, Maine for a post shakedown availability (PSA). Throughout the first year, a warm relationship developed between the ANTRIM crew and the small town of Antrim, New Hampshire. Members of the town council attended the ship ' s commis- sioning ceremony in Seattle. From Bath, the ship ' s crew made many forays down to Antrim, and toward the end of PSA, a three-day festival called USS ANTRIM Days saw some 120 crewmen participate in a summer sports fete. Highlights included a parade, a traditional fireman ' s muster and town dance. The friendships have continued throughout the following years and no mailcall is complete without receiving letters from the town. From I ' SA, the ship returned to Mayport by way of Boston, Norfolk and Charleston. The winter of 1982- 83 was spent undergoing Refresher Training in Guan- tanamo Bay and participating in the predeployment READEX 1-83. In April 1983, ANTRIM departed Mayport on her maiden deployment, commencing seven months of service in the Mediterranean and Arabian Seas. One of the highlights of the cruise was a diplomatic visit to the Romanian seaport of Constanta on the Black Sea, an opportunity afforded only two Navy ships each year. In addition, the ship was awarded the Navy Expeditionary Medal for operations off the coast of Lebanon in support of the Multinational Peacekeeping Forces there. Some of the other ports visited were Valencia and Rota, Spain; Catania and Augusta, Sicily; Gaeta, Italy; Antalya, Turkey; and the French Republic of Djibouti; Karachi, Pakistan; and the island country of Bahrain. In February, 1984, ANTRIM deployed to the Eastern Pacific for Special Operations. Despite the tedious tempo of operations, ANTRIM ' S crew was able to enjoy such port visits as Puerto Cortez, Honduras and Rodman, Panama. On 11 March. ANTRIM ' S first Shellback initiation was conducted as the ship crossed the Equator. In April, 1984, ANTRIM was named SWOSCHOLCOM School Ship in Newport, Rhode Island. In May, she was detached from her duties and commenced transit to Portsmouth, New Hampshire for her second ANTRIM Days Festival to be enjoyed with the people from the town which adopted her, Antrim, New Hampshire. The first week of May, 1984, found ANTRIM involved with a Training Readiness Evaluation (TRE) and then in June, was underway enroute the AUTEC range during which the ship participated as as platform for ASW School Ship. Shortly thereafter, after a brief stay in her homeport. ANTRIM again found herself underway enroute Guantanamo Bay, Cuba for Interim Refresher Training (IRFT) which involved various exercises evaluating the crew and ship in Combat Systems and Damage Control readiness. On 26 September, 1984, ANTRIM celebrated her ,3rd Birthday. The remainder of the month and on through October, ANTRIM was involved with post SRA sea trials and weapons onloading in Charleston, South Carolina. On 1 November, ANTRIM set sail for COMPUTUEX 1-85 and SHAREM-58 exercises off the coast of Puerto Rico. While deployed, ANTRIM ' S helo detachment was onboard readying itself for the upcoming deployment. The first week of December, ANTRIM was busy again, this time assuming flagship duties for Commander Des- troyer Squadron TWENTY-FOUR. Through the end of the year, ANTRIM enjoyed a brief and well-deserved break over the holidays while readying herself for the upcoming Middle East Force (MEF 2-85) deployment. On 4 February 1985, with a fair wind and early morning mists, ANTRIM deployed to the Middle East Force, her second extended deployment in almost as many years. Enroute, after crossing the Atlantic and her notorious heavy seas, ANTRIM made a brief stop at Rota, Spain and conducted a 3-day port visit to the island of Palma de Mallorca. Leaving behind the beauty of the Balearic Islands on 21 February, ANTRIM continued eastward, combating the heavy seas of the Mediterranean, and the French seafarer ' s eloquent term mal de mer. The 27th of February found ANTRIM transiting the famous Suez Canal as she continued her eastward transit to the Persian Gulf. Along the way many hours were spent in training evolutions and shipboard drills while steaming through the Red Sea, the Arabian Sea and the Strait of Hormuz, the final leg of her voyage to the Persian Gulf. From March through July, 1985, ANTRIM was constantly on alert in her Persian Gulf operating area. The hazardous environment of the Persian Gulf proved to be tested when ANTRIM was called upon to render assistance to the merchant vessels CARIBBEAN BREEZE and NORDIC TRADER, both of whom had been hit by missiles from Iranian F-4s. ANTRIM ' S ability to remain on station was commendable and noted on by COMIDEASTFOR. On 26 March, 1985, ANTRIM commenced a five-day upkeep in Dubai, U.A.E., which, of historical importance, became the first-ever upkeep for a U.S. Naval warship in that state. On 21 April, ANTRIM hosted her Second Annual Miss Karachi Contest while enroute to Karachi, Pakistan. The remainder of April and through the months of May and June, ANTRIM ' S operations schedule and upkeep periods in Bahrain kept her constantly on alert and ready for any task that may be required of her. On 5 Julv, ANTRIM was relieved on station by USS KLAKRING and USS REID in the Arabian Sea. Thus detached from her duties, she commenced a homeward transit. Stopping in Djibouti for fuel on 10 July, ANTRIM once again transited the Suez Canal on 14 July. Her next port-o-call was Valencia, Spain on 20 July for a 3-day port visit. Departing Valencia on the 23rd of July, ANTRIM continued on to Rota, Spain, arriving on the 24th. Sailing the same day, the course was set, and with the sun setting to the West, ANTRIM commenced her Atlantic transit, stopping in the Azores for fuel on 27July . The next stop for fuel and to bring aboard passengers for ANTRIM ' S Tiger Cruise was in Bermuda on the 2nd of August. Underway once again, ANTRIM ' S course was steadfast . . . home! In total, ANTRIM spent 151 days at sea and only 32 days inpt)rt during her deployment to the Persian Gulf. Those few, but memorable, port visits included: Palma De Mallorca, Spain; Dubai, U. A. E.; the island city of Manama, Bahrain; Karachi, Pakistan; and Valencia, Spain. In retrospect, ANTRIM ' S history is short, but now brings us to the present, with ANTRIM completing her extended deployment to the Middle East Force and subsequently arriving in her homeport of May port, P ' lorida on 5 August 1985. ANTRIM ' S reputation as a can do ship is well known throughout the Fleet. She was well named, for Rear Admiral Antrim was a man who sought the challenge, the first to step out in front, one to be counted on. Her future still lies ahead and her commitment to her motto, In Defense of Freedom, will always precede those who seek the challenge. IN DEFENSE OF FREEDOM A] COAT OF ARMS SHIELD: The colors dark blue and gold are traditionally associated with the Navy and represent the sea and excellence. The light blue and reversed star refer to the Medal of Honor awarded to Rear Admiral Antrim for heroic actions while in a Japanese POW camp at Makassar Celebes and Batavia, Java. The anchor symbolizes his naval career and the crossed crosslets, a personal device, represents his dedication to servic e. The cross throughout the shield is an allusion to the Navy Cross awarded Admiral Antrim for action in the Battle for Java Sea in the Dutch East Indies. CREST: The wreath is for outstanding gallantry and achievement. The palm denotes victory, and the laurel, honor. The torch symbolizes leadership and bravery. The portcullis represents POW imprisonment. The USS ANTRIM Coat of Arms was prepared by Nadine Russell of the Army Institute of Heraldry, Wash- ington, D.C. • rss iiichi Peru, Hegi Nava recoil causs thes event ;iiiki Thel m ar,i :heo force Tllr COK aere Antr adva ADMIRAL RICHARD NOTT ANTRIM USS ANTRIM (FFG-20) is named for Rear Admiral Richard Nott Antrim, a recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor, Bronze Star, Navy Cross, and the Purple Heart. Rear Admiral Antrim was born on 17 December 1907 in Peru, Indiana. In June, 1926, he enlisted in the U.S. Naval Reserve. Upon being discharged in 1927, he accepted an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy from Indiana. He graduated and was commissioned an Ensign in 1931. In September, 1940, he received the designation of Naval Aviator. The Navy Cross was awarded to Antrim upon the recommendations of his Commanding Officer for having caused extensive damage to the enemy and then, in the same battle, for being the prime factor in the eventual saving of the lives of 151 survivors of the actual sinking of the USS POPE at the Battle of Java Sea in the Dutch East Indies. The Medal of Honor and the Bronze Star were won for heroic actions while in a Japanese POW camp at Makas- sar, Celebes, and Batavia, Java. In April, 1942, Lt. Antrim intervened in behalf of a junior naval officer who was being clubbed by a frenzied Japanese guard. Antrim first attempted to persuade the guard to discuss the charges against the officer. When the entreaties to the Japanese had availed nothing, and it was apparent that the officer would either be maimed or killed, Antrim stepped forward in front of the entire Japanese guard force and 2700 Allied prisoners and indicated that he would take the remainder of the punishment. According to the recommendations written by the American senior officer at the camp, the Japanese were so startled by Antrim ' s daring move that no punishment was forthcoming. In fact, prison life, which had been worsening, improved. The Bronze Star was won on a later occasion , July 1945, when Antrim was forced to take charge of a labor party which was to construct the slit trenches for bomb protection. Antrim caused the trenches to be constructed in such a manner that Allied aerial photographs would reveal the nature of the trenches and whom they protected. Upon his return to the United States, Antrim was progressed in rank to Captain. On 1 April 1954, he was transferred to the Retired List of the U.S. Navy and was advanced to the rank of Rear Admiral on the basis of combat awards. After his retirement from the Navy, Rear Admiral Antrim and his family settled in Mt. Home, Arkansas, where he died in 1969. He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

Perry Manhattan, NY 63 Antrim rescues merchant crewmen On March 17 ihe U.S. Na y guided missile frigale USS An- trim (KFG-20), operaling in the central Persian Cull some 45 miles casi of Qaiar, rescued ihree crewmen and provided medical assistance lo an additional nine crewmen from the merchant tanker Caribbean Breeze, which had been attacked by Iranian air- craft. When the 236,000-ion Liberian-flag tanker was hit by Iranian rockets, Antrim was about 70 miles away and heard distress calls requesting urgent medical assistance. Commander Middle East Force, Antrim ' s operational commander in the Persian Gulf, at once directed Antrim to pro- ceed to the icinity of the Carib- bean Breeze at best speed and launch her embarked LAMP.S helicopter of HSL-3b Detach- ment One as soon within range to provide emergency assistance as needed. Antrim soon launched the LAMPS helicopter with Chief Hospital Corpsman Jerry Krocke and two aircrew-men onboard. The LAMPS helicopter, under the command of Lieutenant Commander Michael Connelly, landed on the deck of the stricken tanker and disembarked HMC Krocke and Aviation Anti- submarine Warfare Operatcr I si Class Michael D. Aim and Avia- tion Anli-Submarine Warfare Operator 3rd Class Leonard L. Reed. HMC Krocke then deemed ii necessary ihat three Caribbean Breeze crewmembers be evacuated. This was accomplish- ed by an SH-3 Sea King helicopter of HS-1 Deiachment One, which arrived shortly thereafter bringing in a Navy Medical leam from Bahrain. Doc Krocke, assisted by AW3 Reed, treated numerous other minor injuries onboard. Thirteen of the merchant ship ' s total crew of 33 had been injured. For their part in assisting in the medical rescue effort, both An- trim and HSL-36 received hearty congratulations. In a message sent to all of the Middle East Force, COMIDEASTFOR said, in part, The rescue effort was a fine example of outstanding teamwork and individual stan- dards of excellence. The action w as correct , the reporting superb, and the result highly favorable for the injured. HMC Krocke was awarded a Navy Achievement Medal for his efforts on behalf of the injured crewmen. Antrim is an Oliver Ha ard Perry class guided missile frigate and is commanded bv Captain R.B. Moser. The ship has been assigned to Commander Middle East Force since March. I :aribbean breeze ANTRIM ' S mission during the Persian Gulf cruise was to protect U.S. interests. While carrying out her mission, ANTRIM also com- pleted several humanitarian missions. ANTRIM had the unfortuante experience of witnessing the results of the Gulf Tanker War waged by Iran and Iraq. With the cooperation of friendly countries, ANTRIM provided humanitarian assistance to crewmembers of tankers attacked with modern missiles. The stories are told in the following pictures and newspaper articles: ' yiO SMOKING 65 Assistance to the CARIBBEAN BREEZE Recognition from COMIDEASTFOR WORLD NEWS Another gulf tanker is hit; U.S. Navy helps rescue crew By Th« AMOclated Pres« MANAMA, Bahrain - War- planes attacked an oil tanker Thursday in the Persian Gulf northeast of Qatar, setting it afire and wounding some crew mem- bers, shipping and salvage execu- tives said. The shipping sources said Iran was responsible for the attack, but Iran blamed Iraq. The sources said the ship was aban- doned, with U.S. Navy ve.ssels helping in the rescue. Lloyd ' s Shipping Intelligence in London confirmed an attack on the 20,085-ton Nordic Trader, registered in Liberia, and said warplanes also attacked but missed a second tanker, the 117,596-ton Japan Aster. Lloyd ' s did not identify the attackers. Iran, in a Tehran radio report monitored in London, blamed Iraq for both attacks and said the raid on the Japanese tanker was an attempt to disrupt Iranian- Japanese relations. The Nordic Trader was about 80 miles north of Doha, Qatar, and the Japan Aster was about 35 miles away, gulf shipping sources said. Lloyd ' s spokesman Roger Lowes said he had no report of injuries. He and shipping execu- tives in Bahrain said the U.S . Navy guide missile frigate Antrim and Arab fishing boats rescued 18 crewmen and took them to Qatar. Shipping sources said the Libe- rian tanker was hit by a rocket fired by an Iranian jet fighter. The ship was badly hit and set on fire in the attack, one marine salvage executive said. We do not know as yet how many seamen were injured, but we know that quite a number of them were moved by helicopter to Qatar hospitals, a Bahrain - based shipping agent said. The attack on the Nordic Trader could have been in retali- ation for a raid by Iraqi war- planes Wednesday on the Turk- ish tanker Burak M, which was loaded with Iranian crude oil. Iraq, which has been at war with Iran since September 1980. has decl ared a blockade of Ira- nian ports and vowed to attack any vessels in the area. Iran has not claimed responsibility for any ship attacks in the gulf, but has said it would retaliate for any efforts to cut off the oil exports it uses to finance the war. . jTFOR 67 Antrim aids in rescue of crewmen Shortly before 10:00 a.m. on May 2, the Liberian flag mer- chant vessel Nordic Trader was attacked in the Persian Gulf by an Iranian warplane. The stricken vessel sent a distress call over marine radio, which was overheard by USS Antrim (FFG-20), on routine patrol near- by at the time. Directed by Commander Mid- dle East Force to investigate, An- trim responded to the call. After hearing the initial call, the Mayport-based Navy warship tried unsuccessfully to raise the vessel to determine her position and the nature of the emergency. A Japanese merchant vessel was able to report the stricken vessel ' s position and informed Antrim that the merchant had been hit and was on fire and in need of assistance. Captain Horn takes helm of USS Yosemite By J01 Audrey C. Michaels Captain Frank G. Horn became the Commanding Officer of the destroyer tender USS Yosemite (AD-19) during a change of command ceremony June 3 on the ship ' s ceremonial deck. Commodore Jeremy M. Boor- da, Executive Assistant to the Chief of Naval Operations, was the guest speaker for the occa- sion. Captain Horn relieved Captain Francis J. Boyle, who had com- manded the Mayport-based tender since June of 1983. Prior to reporting to the Yosemite, Captain Horn .served as Commander Patrol Combat Missile Hydrofoil Squadron Two, based in Key West, Florida. He served in a variety of assignments afloat. His billets have included Engineering Of- ficer, USS Hunting (EAG-398); Operations Officer, USS McNair (DD-679); Operations Officer, USS Richard E. Byrd (DDG-23); Electronics Warfare Officer, Commander Destroyer Flotilla 12; Weapons Officer, USS Calcaterra (DER-390); and Com- manding Officer, USS Richard E. Byrd (DDG-23).

I have to do a little praying Deep down I wish that he was staying. Now the ship has sailed away. I know that this will Ix- the day That my whole heart begins to break And my whole world starts lo shake. I ' m alone, what do I do now? ' Of course, I ' ll have to learn how To carry on and do my part. But when he left he took my heart. I wondered, when we were pulled apart If the Navy even had a heart. They tell us it won ' t be for long But now I feel I don ' t telong. I write a letter every night To say, I won ' t give up the fight. At times it ' s hard for me to cope. Sometimes I even give up hope. Then I stop to think and say Does it have to be this way? Yes, it is a rough life. But, I am a Navy wife. Now the months are down to one day I can say, Baby, I ' ve come a long way. Yesterday, I was lonely and sad. Now, the ship is coming back, I ' m glad. [ stand and wait for that ship to come. And I know once again I ' ve won. I have to understand this lonely life Because I am a Navy wife. Faye Jones f DEDICATION TO US Most of us, most of the time, live in blissful ignorance of what a small, elite, heroic group of Americans are doing for us night and day. As we speak, all over the globe, American sailors and submariners and aviators are doing something very dangerous. People say, Well, it can ' t be too dangerous because there are no wrecks. But the reason we don ' t have more accidents is that these are superb professionals; the fact that they master the dangers does not mean the dangers aren ' t real. Right now, somewhere around the world, young men are landing high performance jet aircraft on the pitching decks of aircraft carriers, at night! You can ' t pay people to do that; they do it out of love of country, of adventure, of the challenge. We all benefit from it, and the very fact that we don ' t have to think about it tells you how superbly they ' re doing their job — living on the edge of danger so the rest of us need not think about, let alone experience, danger. —George Will, ABC news commentator WALSWORTHWWW CRUISE BOOK OFFICE PUBLISHING III 1203 Wesi Lillle Creek Road COMPANyXAA Norfolk Virginia 23505 Marcelin .
