Hawaii. Like most ships heading west, the ARK pulled in to take on supplies, get some maintenance work done and get briefed by the staff of the Commander-in-Chief, U.S. Pacific Fleet. The crew manned the rails in dress whites and rendered honors to the USS ARIZONA (BB-39) Memorial on the morning of the 29th. Pearl Harbor was a working port, but just about everybody got to see the World War II related sites and to walk the world famous beaches of Waikiki. The ship got underway the morning of 31 May bound for the Philippine Islands. Not quite six months later, ARKANSAS pulled back into Pearl Harbor. The ship pulled in on the morning of 11 November. That afternoon, the individuals participating in the Tiger Cruise (sons, fathers, and friends of various ARKANSAS crew members) came on board to ride the ship from Pearl Harbor to NAS Alameda. With all the briefings done, the stores brought aboard and all the Tigers accounted for, the brow was pulled the morning of the 13th of November, and an eager crew pointed the bow east and headed for NAS Alameda and home. 80 Pulling into Pearl Harbor MS3 Brown rc-enlisting at the USS ARIZONA Memorial82ASHPAC ’91 June 12-20, 1991 ARKANSAS arrived at Naval Station Subic Bay, Republic of the Philippines the evening of 12 June. The ship was scheduled to pull in that morning but as it was making its approach to the pier. Mount Pinatubo erupted for the first time and ARKANSAS was ordered back out to sea. Later that evening, things calmed down and ARKANSAS was given permission to enter port. Mount Pinatubo erupted the next two days ever)' eight hours or so for about an hour and then stopped. But Friday night as Typhoon Yunya hit Subic bringing rain and 30 to 35 knot winds, the volcano erupted and did not stop. The eruption and the typhoon both continued through the night and the next day. Attempts were made all during daylight hours of the 15th and into the night to clear the decks of this wet volcanic ash. Crew with fire hoses tried to wash it off and several times the countermeasure wash down system was lit off but to no effect. The ash was coming down so heavy it blocked out the sun. It looked like midnight at high noon. The ash was a grayish white. The ship looked like it was covered with drifting snow at night. Only this snow was actually wet sand and gravel. The devastation caused by Mount Pinatubo and the surrounding areas was astounding. Over 1 3 of the buildings on the Naval Station proper had collapsed on their roofs. Large numbers of Filipinos were left homeless and destitute by the destruction caused by this natural event. Reveille sounded at 0400, 16 June. The entire crew mustered to clear the main deck of over 500 tons of wet volcanic ash. With a combination of homemade shovels, fire hoses, sheets, dust pans, trash cans and good old fashioned elbow grease, the decks cleared enough to get the ship underway. At 1000, 293 Airmen and their dependents came aboard and Operation Fiery Vigil was underway.Mount Pinatubo rains its fury onSubic and Clark IUSS Arkansas: first on the scene at P.l. disastei Regardless of the huge obstacles pieced in lu ny by the often cruet burr of nature. Operation Fiery Vigil wu lead by the USS Arkansas. In its wake of destruction, Mount Pinatubo left the Arkansas-docked at Subic Bay, Philippines-covered under a thick sheet of volcanic ash. The crew of the Arkansas pulled together and cleaned up the ship, as well as small boats and engines that were needed to begin transporting the evacuees from Subic Bay to the Wand of Cebu. Arkansas was the first ship to carry the evacuees to safety and was able to make two runs between Subic and Cebu in record time In all, Arkansas trans|M rted close to liUI men, women and children.

It was the first ship to get underway from Subic Bay with evacuees from the Naval Station and Clark Air Force Base. 293 Airmen and their dependents came on board along with their dogs, cats and turtles. The response of the crew to these people was truly outstanding. The Mess Management Specialists and the Food Service Attendants kept the galley open almost around the clock feeding the people the first hot meal they had had since the evacuation of Clark Air Force Base a week earlier. The Engineer put out that extra effort to insure there was plenty of water for greatly appreciated hot showers. Whole divisions willingly gave up their berthing complexes so that the guests would have a place to sleep. The sailors of the KKANSAS took these people into their hearts. We did everything we could to provide them with the first safe and comfortable refuge they had had since they were evacuated from their homes the week before.

As soon as they were off the ship. ARKANSAS was roaring through the San Bernardino Straits back to Subic for another group of evacuees. ARKANSAS transported 593 men. women, and children as well as 15 dogs. 2 cats, and 2 turtles during its involvement in Operation Fiery Vigil. ARKANSAS’ visit to Subic will be long remembered by everyone on board. There arc not many people in this world who can say they have lived through a volcanic eruption, a typhoon, and an earthquake all at the same time.PHUKET THAILAND 24-30 June 1991 The crew was really looking forward to liberty in Phuket, Thailand after facing the rigors of Mount Pinatubo and Operation Fiery Vigil. Phuket is an island located on the western side of Thailand and Malay Peninsula that has developed some notoriety as a resort area in the past few years. The U.S. Embassy in Thai- land arranged a wide variety of tours that offered the ship’s crew the opportunity to see first hand the breath- taking natural beauty of Thailand, as well as a chance to experience the rich and diverse culture. 92 Patong Beach. Phuket. ThailandIThe boys arc back in lown ETI Gary Strokos reenlisting in Thailand "Looking Good” The shopping in Phuket is very good. With the right taxi cab and driver and a willingness to haggle, you can find some real bargains in silk, jewelry, woodwork, lacquer, ceramics, and metal work. The island abounds with shops capable of turning out tailor made suits in just a matter of days. or. even hours if the price is right. The diving around Phuket is some of the finest in the world. Phuket and the other nearby sea islands are literally surrounded by exotic and fascinating coral reefs. Diving at PhuketTen ARKANSAS sailors spent the 26th of June painting a Muslim elementary school near the town of Fatong Beach. They spent the morning painting the back portion of the building with white US Navy paint provided by Deck Division. The students served the sailors soft drinks while they worked. The crew- men treated the children and staff to lunch that day. The after- noon was spent playing with the children and cleaning up the school grounds for a sports festi- val the school was to sponsor the next day. The ARKANSAS sailors and children didn't speak each oth- ers' native tongue, but the lan- guage of smiles and laughter is universal and is understood by all.The lush green rain forest, towering mountains, white sandy beaches, crystal clear water combined with the exotic animal life, and the unique and fascinating culture of Thailand provided endless photo opportu- nities for the shutter bugs of ARKANSAS. The pictures that come home from Phuket will be impressive, but they won't do justice to the natural and cultural beauty of Thailand, or the warmth and hospitality of the Thai people. The beauty and majesty of the land On the shore of Pec-Pec Island Original Bird’s Nest Soup Factory"Party Down Dudes Phuket had something for everyone. If you wanted to blow off some steam after the rigors of Mount Pinatubo and Fiery Vigil, there were plenty of places and people to help you. If you were looking for a chance to walk along a sandy beach, there were miles of beaches to choose from. Phuket is attracting tourists from Europe and Australia. Sev- eral ARKANSAS sailors made friends with people from Aus- tralia and already had invitations and plans arranged when the ship pulled into Australia four months later. Phuket proved to be the type of liberty port the crew needed after the trials of the Philippines and the challenges that awaited in the Gulf. "Friends" "ll don't get much better than this" "The Beach, the Sea. and Me"Turn Over With The USS LEAHY (CG-16) 8 July 1991 On the 8th of July, ARKANSAS rendezvoused with the USS LEAHY (CG-16) in the Gulf of Oman for a turn over of duties of the Air Warfare Command (Gulf Whiskey) for the Persian Gulf. Bright and early that morning, several boat loads of LEAHY per- sonnel including their commanding officer pulled along side ARKANSAS and came aboard to tell us everything we ever wanted to know about the Persian Gulf but were afraid to ask. After the briefings, LEAHY’s Captain smiled, shook Captain Lyons hand and said something to the effect of “I had it, you got it, goodbye and good luck!” Then he got in his gig and headed back to his ship and home and we headed to the Persian Gulf. The CO of the USS LEAHY and Captain Lyons 98Bahrain 10-14 July 91 23-28 Sept 1991 ARKANSAS anchored off the coast of Bahrain on the 10th of July for a short upkeep period with the USS SAMUEL GOMPERS (AD-37) and to be briefed by Commander, Naval Middle East Forces on our mission. Several pieces of equipment that would be needed in the Gulf were installed and the Stinger missile team came on board. Bahrain is an island nation located in the Persian Gulf. The weather there was hot and humid with the temperatures easily get- ting into the 100’s during the day. Bahrain is rather green because of her plentiful water supplies. Bahrain is a very cosmopoli- tan country. But for all its mod- ern ' amenities and modern appearance, the spirit of Old Arabia is still very present. The U.S. Navy has operated an Administrative Support Unit for several years. It had a sports center complete with a weight room, basketball court and a bowling alley. There was an all hands club as well as an offi- cer’s club. The telephone center had U.S.A. direct lines.

The island has been inhabited for thousands of years. In pre-Islamic times, the island was a major religious burial center. ARKANSAS sailors visited several active archaeological sites where the government is making every effort to preserve its cultural heritage in the face of development. The first European power to establish a permanent presence in the Gulf region was Portugal who controlled the island most of the 16th century. The island came under British control in 1861 and remained so until 1971 when Bahrain became fully independent. Bahrain is a monarchy and is ruled by the Al-Khalifa Family.

It was hot. humid and dusty most of the time with the temperatures ranging from 90-100 most days. A large portion of the crew literally worked from dawn to dusk repairing the damage caused by Mount Pinatubo. A great deal of time was spent at general quarters practicing damage control and conducting our valuable and needed training. Desert Storm was still going on at that point and the ARKANSAS was in a war zone, so to speak, so this training was very important. The Signal Bridge Main Watch 1 The Foc'lc Mine WatchBecause of the number of mines released during the Iraq-lran War and the large numbers laid by Iraqi's during the invasion of Kuwait, there was always a risk of hitting one. A mine watch was maintained on the Foc’le and the signal bridge 24 hours a day while the ship was underway in the Gulf. A chain gun was installed to provide the ship with some defense against small fast boats. SCAT teams were formed out of the Com- bat Systems Divisions along with individuals from other depart- ments to man these weapons should the ship be attacked.

ARKANSAS area of operations was at the end of supply lines. Everything had to come in by air. VERTREPS, or vertical replenishment, were a common event during ARKANSAS’ time in the Gulf. A U.S. Naval Supply Ship's helicopter would fly over and drop pallets of stores and sup- plies onto the flight deck. The flight crew would move the pallets to a safe spot where the working parties would pick them up and get them to proper storage spaces. Several times the whole crew mus- tered as the working party to move the supplies. 104 The constants of the Gulf were haze, dust, and the sun. The sun rose early and went down late. The haze was the result of the oil fires that were still burning out of control in Kuwait at that time. Several times the low visibility team had to be called away in the middle of the day because the haze or smog was so bad. But according to LEAHY, the haze situation had improved quite a bit by the time ARKANSAS arrived on the scene. The dust was brought in by the scorching winds that would come across the Arabian Peninsula. At times the smog and the dust would combine and life would really get miserable for every- body — especially those people down in the engineering spaces.HUMP DAY TALENT SHOW AUGUST 25, 1991 The winner was the Blind Comic. CTR1 Robinson with his hit song: THE ARKANSAS BLUES" This is the Captain and I've got the ARKANSAS BLUES. My ship hasn't been the same, since we went on this WESTPAC Cruise. I gained a lot of wrinkles and I've lost a lot of hair, when that Mount Pinatubo gave us quite a scare. We were sideswiped by the Filipinos. They gave my ship a gash, so the Filipino Navy and Mount Pinatubo can all just kiss my "ash"! chorus I Got the ARKANSAS BLUES. I ain't never going home. I Got the ARKANSAS BLUES. I just want to be alone. This is your Cruise Mother, and I got the ARKANSAS BLUES. My voice is high and squeaky, cause I wear these real tight Fruit of the Looms. You’re using too much water, and those cigarettes cause a wreck. If you don't stop making a mess. I’ll have Ensign Craig sweeping the deck. Hearing my voice on the IMC is probably your pel peeve But I’d sure talk a lot clearer if I could only sneeze. CHORUS I got the ARKANSAS BLUES. I want to go home. I got the ARKANSAS BLUES. I wish the Captain would leave me alone. This is the Chief Master at Anns and I've got the ARKANSAS BLUES. I'm the meanest. I'm the baddest. and I make up all my own rules. I beat Joe Frazier. Sonny Liston and the old XO. I could have taken out Crisp and Proctor but I forgot to grow. CHORUS I got the ARKANSAS BLUES. I ain’t never go’in home. I got the ARKANSAS BLUES.

Dubai is located on the western side of the Ara- bian Gulf and is one of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates. ARKANSAS pulled into Dubai on the 12th of August after 29 days at sea tor some well deserved liberty and an availability along side the USS SAMUEL GOM- PERS. 'I he first few days inport were regular duty days because there was a good deal of work to do. but the last three days in were duty section only and there was a lot to see and do in Dubai. The streets, shops, hotels and restaurants of Dubai were filled with people from all the world. The shops were filled with fine gold, silks, brass work, rosewood furniture and antique silver, and Dubai was the place to buy a Persian rug if you wanted one. The ARKANSAS Rugby Team made its first appearance in Dubai playing the team from the French Navy Frigate GEORGES LEYGUES. The game ended in a tie which is not bad when you consider 90% of the people on the team had never played before. Guarding the Gate of the Port of Dubai. The Streets of Dutwi. 1071 wo groups of ARKANSAS sailors visited the Al-Noor School for the Physically and Mentally Handicapped Children in Dubai. The children stole the hearts of the sailors, as well as several basketball games. The ship collected over $680, 335 Philippine Pesos, and 20 Thailand Baht to give to the school. Captain Lyons came out to the school the last full day we were in port. He met the children and presented the money along with a framed picture of the ship to the director of the school. ™! f»« Md the children of Al-Noor T1»» kids pla ’ha,d 109TRUXTUN (CGN 35) Turnover 5 OCT 1991 ARKANSAS rendezvoused with the USS TRUXTUN on the morning of 5 October to conduct a turnover. Four hours later, it was all over. TRUXTUN was heading for her sta- tion in the Gulf and we were south bound and down heading for Australia and the liberty the whole crew' had been talking about since we pulled out the evening of the 24th of May. ARKANSAS left the Gulf with the reputation of a "can do" ship. fl VLr-ttC'V k’ { While operating near the Strait of Hormuz on 4 October, the USS ARKANSAS encountered an Indian dhow floating dead in the water with personnel waving rags and articles of clothing to signal ARKANSAS. ARKANSAS closed the dhow and launched a small boat to investigate. The dhow was bound from Bombay, India to Dubai. United Arab Emirates with a load of onions. The dhow had been disabled for the last seven days due to engine failure. ARKANSAS provided them with water and towed them toward the Coast of Oman where a U.A.E. Coast Guard vessel took the dhow under tow to port. Rear Admiral Raynor A.K. Taylor said, “They are all good Samaritans at sea. The sailor's professional and expeditious actions proves our ability to respond to any situation, any place, any time." noHMAS Stirling Western Australia The ARKANSAS pulled into HMAS Stirling, a Royal Australian Navy base on the 15th of October for four enjoyable days in Western Australia. The day the ship arrived the officers, chiefs, and junior enlisted were invited by their Australian colleagues to lunch and a reception at their respective messes.

Once we got to the shore however, the people of Hobart and Tasmania welcomed us with open amis. It was a good bit cooler in Hobart than it was in Perth. Tas- mania is a very green and lush island with rugged hills, very much like New Hngland.Hobart and Tasmania have a long and colorful his- tory. First colonized by the British in 1803. Tasmania was primarily a penal colony where convicts lived and labored in terrible conditions. Several groups of ARKANSAS sailors visited the ruins of the penal settlement of Port Arthur which are 62 miles southwest of Hobart. While the grounds arc now peaceful, from 1830-1870, Port Arthur was the site of one the country’s harshest convict institutions. Established as a place of last resort for the most incorrigible inmates, it is located on the Tasmanian Peninsula which is connected to the rest of Tasmania by a narrow strip of land called Eaglehawk neck. To keep prisoners from escaping, guards and savage dogs kept constant watch across the strip of land and the authorities circulated minors that the surrounding waters were shark infested.TM£ MtACimv ’ Sailor hits town with eyes for a special girl dof«r»y Shaa» a d —»|MM B, MICHAEL SMITH NO iw nm( Ik I'M Aril» 600 ere— mU han hern mo»» I» l iA Hobart' •No than Ijwbiunl JrfTrev Sha.l v «( Hjj WKm he .tepped off Ik ihK- kar pu—ered anh p. which M been home (a Ik part five monlh. and into kla ailf i im .

The first day in. the offi- cers and chiefs were invited to a reception held by the Australian American Association in the ship’s honor at a local tavern. Everybody had a blast and the visit only got better.Brisbane is a city of striking contrast. Every- where you look you see modern skyscrapers, but in the midst of this nest of steel and glass, the elegant buildings of colonial Brisbane remain. The ARKANSAS softball baseball team spent an enjoyable afternoon with the students of a local high school instructing them in the fine art of American baseball. Quite a few ARKANSAS sailors got into Brisbane and headed down to the Gold Coast, which is Australia's version of Miami Beach. They found the surf and the night life they were looking for. nsAustralia's Wildlife Fascinated ARKANSAS. We Wanted To Bring It Home. Tasmanian IV i The fascinating wildlife of Australia attracted many ARKANSAS crew members. Perth, Hobart, and Brisbane all had excellent wild animal parks and zoos. It came as quite a shock to some that the Tasmanian devil did not spin around and round as depicted in car- toons. A couple of the crew headed into the country side of Queensland and spent their days wandering through the hills and valleys of the Austrialian Brush. They came face to face with kangaroos, koalas, angle headed lizards, cockatoos, and some rather large and poi- sonous snakes. Brisbane was a great liberty port.
