The READEX (Readiness Exercise) took place in the Caribbean, with ARKANSAS joining the NIMITZ and other units of the Second Fleet, in preparation for the deployment ahead. During the exercises, ARKANSAS ' gunnery earned an outstanding score of 93.7 per cent in qualifications for Naval Gun Fire Support. Number 41 also flexed its combat System muscles in the firing of three live missiles. The sonarmen and operations specialists gained many hours experience tracking live submarines which stood them in good stead during the deployment. ARKANSAS also assisted the Navy in developing much useful tactical information during a simulated war-at-sea, in which ARKANSAS played the role of our potential enemy against the NIMITZ ' S carrier battle group. ¥¥¥ 44 45 10 NOVEMBER 1982: UNDER WAY I r 46 I Prior to departure, the ship was loaded with 48 tons of general consumables and repair parts; 54 tons of fresh, frozen, and dry foodstuffs; and 45 tons of ship ' s store, ice cream bar, and vending machine stock. There was only one major casualty; the number one emergency diesel generator had bearing problems; but this was solved in time for ARKANSAS to deploy on schedule. Only the repair of the two gyrocompasses was needed for the ship to get under way. The good-byes were all said; the final muster was taken. But still the interior communications men and Electrical Division personnel were busy tackling the gyros. The crew waited throughout the day. Then, ten hours late, as night approached, the repairs were done, and ARKANSAS slowly pulled away from the pier. With an orange sky to port and Norfolk ' s lights to starboard, the ARKANSAS was under way. 47 SHOWING THE FLAG ARKAN SAS and her crew departed Norfolk and headed south. The first leg of the cruise was in the Caribbean, where the Navy ' s newest nuclear powered cruiser took part in an impressive display of air and sea power for the benefit of the friendly governments of Honduras, Colombia, and Venezuela. Aircraft from the USS NIMITZ carried out bombing and flight demonstrations followed by a high speed run, and the ARKANSAS demonstrated its prowess by firing its guns (as in the picture above) and cycling its missiles up on the launchers. It was an impressive display of what U. S. naval might can do, and was one of ARKANSAS ' finest opportunities to show the flag. 48 SocfoM ( m in the n di air anJ Aiitnftf " " " 11(11X1 (III !n finng « .. ■• fflisiles 49 HAPPY HOLIDAYS Following the Showing the Flag Exercise, ARKANSAS turned north eastward toward the Mediterranean. After an unusually calm crossing of the Atlantic, ARKANSAS reached the Med on 30 November, and headed eastward toward Beirut where ARKANSAS became the first nuclear powered cruiser to take up position as a Naval Gun Fire Support ship, on 6 December. ARKANSAS paused on pages 2 and 3). Operational commitments forced ARKANSAS to spend its first major holidays at sea. Thanksgiving was celebrated in the mid-Atlantic, and Christmas and Hanukkah were observed while ARKANSAS was off the coast of Lebanon. EM2 Howard Geisler conducted services for Hanukkah; and in celebration of Christmas the crew gathered on . tra . p ?.TV the mess decks to sing Christmas carols led by EMI Rudolph, who had to put up with remarks about how his name suited the holiday. The ARKANSAS ' wives club sent a video tape of their Christmas party at home, and ARKANSAS sent them back a tape of the men singing carols. Santa arrived by helicopter, the climate not being conducive to reindeer. ' yi % only briefly in its transit of the Mediterranean to take part in operations off the coast of Libya. Libya claims much of the Gulf of Sidra as territorial waters, which the United States recognizes to be international waters. ARKANSAS assisted in demonstrating America ' s resolve to keep these waters open to freedom of navigation. On 10 December, ARKANSAS was about fifty miles from Beirut, when it held its first Change of Command Ceremony, and Captain Dennis S. Read was succeeded in command by Captain Malcolm W. Chase (see photographs " iS B " I «, H ' gj Vfc 0 ' c 4S : n NAPLES, ITALY 52 After 54 continuous days at sea, on 4 January 1983, ARKANSAS made its first port of call. Naples, Italy ' s third largest city and busiest port, gave many sailors their first glimpse of Europe, and a umping oft place to visit several notable areas in Italy. UNDER WAY REPLENISHMENT 54 I ARKANSAS could not go much longer than a month without replenishment of supplies, so during the deployment, there had to be several UNREPS (under way replenishments) scheduled. The first UNREP was held in the second week in December. The entire crew- pulled together impressively well to load the tremendous quantities of fresh, frozen, and dry provisions totalling more than sixty-eight tons (including one whole ton of coffee). The entire operation took only one morning, with the lines of men forming down the sides of the ship to pass the supplies from the fantail to the elevators that struck them below. 55 POMPEII The ancient city of Pompeii is only a half hour train ride from Naples, and many of the ARKAXSAS ' crew- had a chance to pay it a visit. Located at the base of Mount Vesuvius, the city was covered with volcanic ash when the volcano erupted on 24 August 79 A. D. Pompeii offered the men of ARKANSAS unparalleled insights into the daily lives of the ancient Roman civilization. Pompeii ' s excavations include many examples of the domus or one family house as it was between the 4th century B. C. and the 1st century A. D. Also preserved are many interesting wall paintings, some of the best existing examples of the art of this period. The city also contained public baths, an amphitheater (shown here nich Vesuvius vtsihlc m che hiickground), and public monuments. Several gruesome figures o( Pompciians in their death throes were to be seen, which had been preserved when cavities in the ash were filled with plaster, capturing for posterity the unfortunate ancient Pompciians in their mortal agony. N 56 I -t : 58 ARKANSAS ARRIVING On 18 February 1983, despite high winds and heavy seas, not to mention snow, the ARKANSAS flight deck crew managed to retrieve Commodore Burke and Captain Chase. The Commodore and Captain were returning from a briefing on the NIMITZ. During the deployment, ARKANSAS handled over three hundred helicopters. a - 1 59 ROME 1 Busses to the Eternal City took many of the ARKANSAS ' crew on another jaunt away from Naples. Some of the many sights available to the crew were the Vatican and St. Peter ' s Basilica, the Sistine Chapel, with its magnificent scene of the Last Judgment painted by Michaelangelo, the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul Without the Walls, the Pantheon, Michaelangelo ' s Moses, and, of course, the Colosseum. llltIM tROMAtI 61 PULLING TOGETHER The ARKANSAS ' crew pulled together throughout the cruise making its first deployment a record setting one. The command and control program was run for over 146 hours without reloading, an unprecedented record for the computer personnel, and following the eight consecutive day tracking of a Russian " Foxtrot " submarine, the longest tracking by any ship, much less a cruiser. Commodore Burke commended the crew for its " tenacity and bull dog fervor " . During the cruise, the ARKANSAS recorded the following statistics: Days spent at sea 151 Days spent in port 40 Gallons of fresh water made 5,283,782 Statute miles steamed 52,000 Kilowatt Hours of electricity produced 105,000 Grams of chemicals added to maintain steam generator chemistry 313,886 Average hours per day reactors critical 23.6 Messages received 44,590 Messages sent 5,782 Boat runs 800 Missiles fired 3 Postage stamps sold $31,946.39 Money orders sold $474,162.74 Mail sent 12,457 lbs.

From the early tenth through thirteenth centuries, the city of Palma was occupied by the Moors, and traces of Moslem influence are still to be found in the city ' s palaces and castles. Towering over the city is one of the world ' s lovliest 64 cathedrals, whose design was copied in the building of St. Patrick ' s n New York. Work on the Cathedral began in 1230, and is still going on. The nave was completed in 1587, and the main entrance in 1601. An earthquake in 1851 caused the fall of one of the spires, and restoration of it and the facade was completed in 1901. ARKANSAS stayed in this lovely port until the 17th, and then went back to sea for another month and a half. 65 ' I. HUMP DAY 14 February 1983 was not only Valentine ' s Day, but the ship ' s Over-the-Hump Day as well — the half-way point with only 96 more days to go. FTCM(SW) Martin and Captain Chase cut the cake marking the important event. ATHENS, GREECE On Wednesday, 2 March, USS ARKANSAS pulled into the harbor off Phaleron Landing near Athens. Staying until Monday, 14 March, the ARKANSAS ' men had almost two weeks to see the many beautiful cultural and historic sites of Greece. Most of the men managed a trip to the Acropolis and a visit to the Parthenon; many had time to shop in the Plaka near Monasteraki Square; and several ventured to the top of the pyramid shaped mountain of Likavitos, where there is a monastery and restaurant, and from whence one could view the ARKANSAS in the distant harbor sitting on a shimmering sea. No matter where one went in Athens, ancient ruins abounded. Several crew members made side trips to other parts of Greece. Dr. Potter and Ensign Molesch are 68 I)d !WP " (ftnt een on this page discovering an ancient privvy in Corinth. Those who took tours to Delphi, the site of the ancient Oracle, were treated to a truly spectacular view, for the ruins sit perched on a magnificent mountainside. When asked ARKANSAS ' future, the Oracle predicted, " Fair winds and following seas. " 69 COMMANDER SIXTH FLEET Vice Admiral Rowden paid ARKANSAS a visit during the Athens port call. Here, he is seen conferring with Captain Chase on the bridge. 70 I GAVE AT THE OFFICE Z8S8-66Z00-5IS9 NSN agESe535S5S5E55SE 52525252535 5353535552535552 Hi to -«■ j Me P ' - ' )f f (Sl O ' WOOD TOW D ' TMI muf O TMOH fU nftiNC .. !■ Responding to persons in need is part of the ARKANSAS ' way of life. While in Athens, the ship hosted aboard eight members of the Greek Chapter of the International Red Cross, and ARKANSAS ' men willingly gave 42 pints of blood in a gesture of international good will. The blood drive was made somewhat more enjoyable by the smiling faces of the Red Cross workers who came to collect. 71 LIVORNO, ITALY On Saturday, 26 March, ARKANSAS pulled into the Northern Italian port of Livorno. Home of the Italian Naval Academy, it was only a short railway ride away from many beautiful and worthwhile tourist attractions. Twenty kilometers from Livorno is Pisa, where stands the legendary Leaning Tower. Despite SN Boxley ' s best efforts, the tower still leans. Eighty kilometers away is Firenze (Florence), which has one of Europe ' s most elaborate cathedrals, and a bell tower designed by Giotto. Several palaces, such as the Vecchio Palace, provided a different 1 i, ' ¥ ' } Ll KTrrrv m Ki ' m r ii Eu .. 1 1 «5 " «- l fli uA l Ik F- •■■ ' atmosphere from shipboard life. In the Uffiri Gallery, which houses Italy ' s most important art collection, culture-minded sailors could get a view of Botticelli ' s Binh of Venus (the picture of Venus on the half shell), and many other notable art works. Bad weather hampered the ARKANSAS ' stay in Livorno, and many sailors spent several days stranded ashore, while others were unable to leave the ship because boating was secured. Finally, about one hundred-fifty crew members had to be returned to the ship by helicopter so that the ship could pull out on 4 April. 1 73 NAPLES, AGAIN After leaving Livorno, ARKANSAS took part in a fleet-wide exercise known as National Week, in which a very plausible scenario of hostilities leading to warfare was enacted. Designed to show how well the United States would do if left on its own in a showdown with the enemy, it gave the ARKANSAS op portunity to demonstrate her superior battle readiness. ARKANSAS and the NIMITZ battle group were highly successful in countering air attacks by aircraft launched from the USS VINSON and from Sicily, and in defending against submarines and ships attempting to target the battle group. ARKANSAS served as the Anti-Air Warfare Commander, and carried out that assignment better than any other ship throughout the deployment. On Wednesday, 13 April, ARKANSAS coordinated a missile firing exercise for seven ships and the Carrier Air Wing. ARKANSAS shot down the drone target with its first missile. In this same week, ARKANSAS came to the rescue of a Spanish merchant seaman who was injured falling from a mast. ARKANSAS detached from the NIMITZ battle group and found the Spanish ship Frigo las Palmas off the coast of North Africa. LCDR Henry G. Potter, the ship ' s doctor, was sent to treat the injured man, brought him aboard ARKANSAS, and treated his very severe puncture wound. He was able to return to his own ship. Several days later, on Monday, 18 April, ARKANSAS returned to the city whose slogan is, " 5ee Naples and Die. " Despite Bella Napoli ' s less than honest taxi drivers and pushy " Hey Joes " , most of the ARKANSAS ' men had a good time in port. 74 -Wl -p . ' Kf • Bi L ' ' HBI » - m The officers made a nightly pilgrimage to A ' Caccavella Taverna, to partake of some food, wine, and song, while other crew members took in the local sights and shopped at the Naval Supply Activity and the Nato Base. By the time the visit to Naples was over, the crew realized how soon homecoming would be — it was less than a month away. On Sunday, 24 April, ARKANSAS set oft for one last tour on the Naval Gun Fire Support Line off Beirut. 75 CRUISING IN THE MED " : 77 PEACE THROUGH FIRE SUPERIORITY 78 f BIRD ' S AWAY 4 " " ■ " " M VMMrtiMI f J? r e ' y .■ 9! i- ' - ' f;tf1 BLUE SKIES 81 AUGUSTA BAY, SICILY " t i - ' sa -i On Sunday, 27 February, in the midst of a long period at sea, ARKANSAS did make one short eight hour port visit of sorts. It was a stop in Augusta Bay, Sicily, to exchange weapons with the 1755 SURIBACHI (AE 21). But the stop was long enough for the ARKANSAS to host the First (and Last) Annual USS ARKANSAS Augusta Bay 4. 1 Mile Run (which was closer to six miles). Crew members from the ARKANSAS and SURIBACHI, as well as some of the staff from DESRON 20, participated. While SURIBACHI took the team title, EM2 Rick Smith, shown far left, was the top Razorback finisher. Seen in the photograph to the far right, OS2 Alex van Wormer and Commander William R. Burns sprint for the finish. At the wire, it looks like the XO by a chit. Bravo Zulu was often hoard as crew members strove to keep ARKANSAS a " 4.1 " ship. Whether it was a Captain ' s inspection, a recnlistment, or an awards ceremony, the crew ' s pride and professionalism were evident. )%- ' ' .«« . -jl " BRAVO ZULU PUMPING IRON H i SSB. JUMPING IN THE SUN ■ As homecoming approached for the ARKANSAS, the crew began to take seriously getting back into shape, in preparation for the time when picnics would not be held on a steel beach. In the weight room the clanging of the men pumping iron provided a cadence for those who were working out. On the deck on Sunday, 1 May, the ship ' s band provided a cadence of a different sort, to accompany a day of summer weather, volleyball, and barbecued chicken. 87 u 1 w X ' HOW ABOUT THEM HOGS? N i • :.1V.- ■ .• TCTB- , i U f ' J While in Athens, ARKANSAS fielded a basketball team which scored a come-from-behind victory over its arch-rival MISSISSIPPI (known locally as BRAND X) 61 to 60. In the Razorbacks ' first tournament, ARKANSAS compiled a 3-3 win loss record, including two wins over USS CLIFTON SPRAGUE. EWSN Nelson scored with this jumper (top left) against the Mediterranean Champions from the USS PUCET SOUND, but the Razorbacks fell short against the undefeated tender 53 to 45. SUR LA PLAGE With the arrival of spring in the Mediterranean, the crew of the ARKANSAS took advantage of warm days and sunny rays to sit on the steel beach, hoping to have a healthy tan by the time they reached Norfolk. MESSING AROUND Relaxation came in a variety of ways to the men aboard ARKANSAS on their off hours. Some engaged in ferocious role playing in Dungeons and Dragons. YNSN Gibson preferred throwing a few darts in the Chief Petty Officers ' Mess. The Executive Officer and Lieutenant Commanders Rood and Parus watched Navy sink Army 24 to 7. The mess decks after hours also were the perfect location for letter writing, reading, and studying. J-i ' SMILES m r M i - -fi -rms ' ■ •■J r- " . .• » r . fr m; ' Ai--- ' ■• v j. CHk: i ' " ' ?

As Lebanon receded into the distance, most crew members ' thoughts turned toward the homes to which they were now voyaging. Before leaving the Mediterranean, however, there was just enough time for one last port visit. On 8 May, ARKANSAS pulled into the harbor of the British Crown Colony of Gibraltar. For a day and a half the crew enjoyed visiting the rock, playing with the Barbary apes, joining the British for a picnic, and challenging the Royal Navy in soccer, volleyball, and softball. ARKANSAS did better in the latter two. Beating the British in their own sport of soccer would not have been very gentlemanly, so ARKANSAS sportingly held them to a respectable 7 to victory. On the morning of 10 May, ARKANSAS set its course toward Norfolk, and said good-bye to Europe. 99 HOMECOMING: 20 MAY 1983 100 ' anoi It was a damp, rainy day when ARKANSAS pulled into its berth at Pier 25 at the Norfolk Naval Base. But the weather couldn ' t dampen the spirits of the crowd waiting on the pier or the men on the ship. Some even said it was a beautiful day, and for those reunited with loved ones it surely was. ARKANSAS would only be in port here for another seven weeks, but even for a short time, it was good to be home. 102 i CALIFORNIA, HERE WE COME! On 8 July 1983, ARKANSAS bid farewell to its home port of Norfolk, Virginia, and began its transit to the West Coast through the Panama Canal. ARKANSAS ' next deployment will be with the Pacific Fleet, and ARKANSAS ' new home port will be Alameda, California. Come 103 i I i LT Lee B.
