THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE DEPLOYMENT, EVERY EVOLUTION AND OPERATION WAS CARRIED OUT WITH ENTHUSIASM AND PROFESSIONALISM. AR- LEIGH BURKE ' S GOAL WAS TO BE THE BEST SHIP IN THE BATTLEGROUP AND THE CREW MET EACH CHALLENGE AND EXCELLED. I THINK THEY MET THE GOAL. ARLEIGH BURKE ' S 1995 MEDITERRANEAN DEPLOYMENT WAS THE MOST PROFES- SIONALLY REWARDING DEPLOYMENT IN MY NAVAL CAREER. IT WAS MY PRIVI- LEGE TO COMMAND THE BEST CREW IN THE UNITED STATES NAVY. IT ' S GREAT TO BE A DESTROYERMAN. CDR USN From the editor ... ... This is OUR book. It contains many memories of ARLEIGH BURKE ' s second deployment, MED 2-95, and our experiences. From the time we shifted colors on 22 March, through Redcrown duties, port visits, Sundays-at-sea, training, watches, qualifications. Swim Call, outchop, until we shifted colors and moored once again in Norfolk. These are our memories as best we can express them. Through good times and bad, we became shipmates. Separated from our loved ones, we relied on each other for support. We worked and ate together, went on liberty, partied together, worshipped with one another, and trained each other. When things got tedious, we adapted, overcame, and pressed onward. We make this ship run, and WE made this cruise happen. That ' s what makes this Cruisebook a " CREW ' S BOOK " . Enjoy it with your families, friends, children, and grandchildren for years to come.

Since a liberty launch was the only way to the beach from our anchorage, our liberty schedule was the dictated by the schedule of the launches. This was an inconvenience to some, since Corfu boats only ran every 2 hours, but the boats sold beer and soft drinks to pass the time. The liberty launch in Turkey also sold Pizza and snacks. Dropping the Hook o u R P O R T y A KU3 111811 9 u 2 32 V I s I T S ■ After completing a small operation with the Turkish Navy in the Aegean and Mediterranean seas, USS ARLEIGH BURKE dropped anchor in her first liberty port. With a 10 minute boat ride to the Turkish Naval Base of Aksaaz Karassak, and a 30 minute bus ride to the town of Marmaris. Arleigh Burke destroyermen were ready for some good liberty after nearly a month on board. The Turkish people received us very well, and the American Dollar went far when converted to Lire. The most popular food was probably the lamb shishkabob. Green (not red) Touborg beer and " Ouzo " (a liqourish drink similar to Annazette or Sambuca) were popular drinks. Leather and other goods could be haggled to the lowest price at the Marmaris open flea market. Tours to the Ephesus and the Turkish baths were both educational and beautiful. 33 EPHESUS , Jf 35 POAOX ( EAAAX 20-24 APR RHODES, GREECE We lifted our anchor in Turkey, and less than 4 hours later we were moored in Rhodes (Rhodos). Greece, a small island South of Turkey. The city itself was surrounded by a large castle wall and full of shops and outdoor cafes. The prices here were a little higher than in Turkey, but the food was just as good. Two common dishes were Souvlaki (like a lamb shishkabob) and the Gyro. Interest- ingly, the Greek gyros were not made with lamb but with pork. Hcineken beer was also available, as well as Ouzo. The beach had a great view, but the water was cold. Still, some brave Ar- leigh Burke sailors did take part in the " platform dive " . A local dog had attached himself to some of our sailors. This dog would follow a selected group each day all over the town, and at night would wait at the foot of the brow for another group. Every group of sailors had a different name for the dog, (Ralph. Poochie, Butch, etc.). J 36 This is Poochie. Butch, and Ralph In support of the NO-FLY-ZONE over Bosnia. NATO established an air traffic controller in the Adriatic region. A U.S. Naval ship, assigned to Op-area Maverick, is designated to fulfill the duty known as Redcrown. The duties included the positive identification of friendly aircraft, data link management, decon- flietion of the air picture (sorting out who the had guys are), and ensuring safety of flight for air- craft. ARLEIGH BURKE spent most of her underway time in the Adriatic Sea as Redcrown. Pictured below are the seven destroyermen who stood the watch, not pictured is OS2 (SW) Westbrook. They are displaying the box containing the Red Crown, which is passed from ship to ship. Each ship has affixed a brass engraving on the box. signifying the dates spent as Redcrown.

In addition to Redcrown, ARLEIGH BURKE was also a key player in operations SHARP GUARD and DENY FLIGHT. SHARP GUARD duties included upholding U.N. sanc- tions by deterring merchant vessels away from the former Yugoslavia, challenging them if necessary, and boarding potential violators. ARLEIGH BURKE ' S DENY FLIGHT contri- bution was Redcrown (pg. 40). Both operations were a major part of our Mediterranean de- ployment. 41 K ( E P E A K A I P A A 2 42 Following 3 and l h weeks at sea. which included Red- crown duties in the Adriatic Sea, Arleigh Burke once again dropped her anchor, this time in the harbor of beautiful Corfu. Greece. The food, gifts, and prices were very close to those in Rhodos. The highlight of this port was just prior to pulling back out to sea Arleigh Burke hosted WWII veterans for a big Victory over Europe (VE Day) 50 year celebration. The vets had chartered a cruise ship, the S.S. Song of Norway, and met us in Corfu for a tour of Arleigh Burke. After getting underway that eve- ning, the S.S. Song of Norway rendezvoused with Arleigh Burke for a Sea Power Demonstration. A surprise cancellation of Venice. Italy, enabled Arleigh Burke to visit Corfu a second time in mid August. The crew was able to relax on the beach at Ipsos, and both times the " Greek Night " tour was available. With all you can eat Greek food, and Greek wine. A good time was had by all. Shark was " In there ... " 17-20 MAY 14-18 AUG CORFU KERKYRA, GREECE ROTA, SPAIN 8-11 JUNE A large Naval base and a few nice beaches greeted us in Rota. Some sailors ventured into town and to the beaches which provided some very nice pictures. Most stayed on base, were able to call home, shop at the Exchange, or take care of some official business. . 48 BUENOS DIAS ESPANA, ROTA c I T Y L I F E ROTA, SPAIN .J HUMP DAY! 21 June 1995 marked the half-way point in our deployment. To celebrate the special occasion, a special dinner was prepared for the crew on the mess decks. The MS ' s and FSA ' s served steak, crab legs, baked potatoes, and corn-on-the- cob. To top it all off, MSI Staffelli used his culinary skills to bake the cake pic- tured below. Everything was delicious, and the crew had a great time. We were " Over the Hump " . 52 S»W ' J:«H 53 PALM A We moored in Palma de Mallorca, Spain on 23 June 1995. There are quite a few great things to do here, which probably make it " The Pearl of the Mediterra- nean " . The beaches of Magaluf and Palma Nova had all the sun. surf, and sand of a tropical paradise. Nightly entertain- ment and dancing until 5 AM were routine in discos like Tokio Joe ' s, Banana ' s, and BCM. 50 ' s music could be heard at the Cowboy Bar and the red-haired " spaced-out " dude spun favorite rock tunes all night at the Hard Rock Cafe. The hotels around the island were rather expensive, but all had pools and buffet style meals. Many an ARLEIGH BURKE sailor spent some time relaxing off the ship. At Hotel Mamosa Park, for- merly " Hotel 33 " , the Brits and Americans played numerous games of basketball and water polo. At the Medieval Tour, dinner was eaten with your hands while watching a jousting tournament. We also frequented the Daiquiri Palace, where any flavor was available. Many T-shirts were won at this world famous bar. We found the people in Palma, mostly British tourists, extremely warm and friendly. 54 56 Siea Aeh c£ cdma After some coercion . .

Italy. A Papal visit to Rome, and tours to Pompeii and Almafi coast got some ARLEIGH BURKE Sailors out of the city. Still, others found that only a short walk down the waterfront brought them to some nice restaurants, and a cleaner harbor. The Pompeii tour had an added bonus:; crew- members actually climbed Mt. Vesuvius, the volcano that destroyed Pompeii in 79 AD. " Vesuvio " is also a distinct feature of the " NapoH " skyline. On the Fourth of July, ARLEIGH BURKE destroyermen held a ship ' s picnic in Admiral Carney Park. It was a relaxing time for ev- eryone with swimming, volleyball, softball, basketball, and horse- shoes. There was also music, Heineken keggers, and of course, plenty of good oP barbecue. 60 «:: crew- destroyed The Beauty of Napoli ENS Messer makes it to the top.

ARLEIGH BURKE became part of another Victory over Europe (VE) celebration, this time lasting the entire port visit. It started with an all-hands poolside barbecue, shadowed by the Rock of Gibraltar. The pool party was sponsored by NYNEX Communications of Gibraltar, and included soft drinks, beer and all-you-can-eat burgers and dogs. We were also treated to a performance of bagpipers who were very entertaining. (pictures of the sponsers and bagpipers in following pages). During the 3-day visit, the crew was offered free tours inside The Rock. This is where General Eisenhower had his Com- mand Post in WWII. The festivities included a Parade in which ARLEIGH BURKE ' s Precision Marching Unit took part. Also marching were Gibraltar ' s own WWII veterans! What a sight watching these men and one woman march through the streets of Gibraltar! The loudest cheers were for these veterans, who fought along side some of our Parents and Grandparents, to ensure freedom exists today. Other events in " GIB " included a rock climb and a rock run. You could see the monkeys at the top. and if you didn ' t want to climb, a tram was available. i ? %V » s PARADE to commemorate THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY VICTORY IN EUROPE DAY Ymt itrr rftjualfd to ft ■-■;.

S03 CIMIC F f )42IO IIQBF.BFPO 32 Toulon, France lf 17-24 JULY V J BONJOUR! Cote d ' Azur, or Blue Coast, is how the French describe the Riviera. ARLEIGH BURKE got lucky. Our original port visit to Toulon for a main- tenance availability with the tender, Yellowstone, was changed to Naples, Italy a few weeks into the cruise. Shortly thereafter, we received word that the Yellowstone ' s cruise was cancelled. As a result. our maintenance availability was rescheduled for Toulon. (Naples remained in the schedule). With a week ' s worth of liberty on the French Rivi- era, time was spent on the beautiful beaches, or on tours to Marseille and St. Tropez. Some bold De- stroyermen even braved the famed " Bullet Train " to Paris. What was there to eat? Why the " SMASH SAND- WICH " of course. They take two halves of a ham- burger, and put them on a French bread roll with lettuce, tomato, mushrooms, onions, " framage " (cheese), and " fritas " (French fries). The whole thing is then put in waffle iron and " SMASHED " while it cooks. You ' ve never tasted anything like it! On Med 2-93, some volunteers from ARLEIGH BURKE visited the Mont-Mer children ' s home for some structural painting. When ARLEIGH BURKE visited Toulon again on this deployment, a return trip was made to Mont-Mer with 10 more volunteers; this time to repair a damaged and an unsafe swingset. Time was also spent at the beach playing with the children and getting to know them. The pictures that follow are some memories of that great day.

Pizza and Spaghetti Carabinera were some of the foods sam- pled here. A 20 minute bus ride enabled sailors to visit the Naval Air Station in Sigonella. Last min- ute shopping at the Navy Exchange, a haircut, or a trip to the uniform shop were some of the things done at the Navy ' s major air terminal in Southern Europe.

The " STO " is responsible for the testing and administration of all combat systems aboard AR- LEIGH BURKE. " STRIKE " oversees the entire all Tomahawk strike planning and execution. It was a busy but very successful deployment for the men of Combat Systems. From exercises DIS- TANT THUNDER, and TRIDENT EXPRESS, to real-world contingency operations and SHARP GUARD, they kept their equipment and operational skills in top shape. When called upon for any tasking, the Combat Systems Department was ready. ARLEIGH BURKE is built to fight, and these men truly know how. 101 CF Division w X FCl(SW) Kieth Kell) FC2 Mike Gardner FCl(SW) Scott MacFarlane FC2(SW)Steven Lowry I FCC(SW) Victor Bernard FCC(SW) Jon Black ell cw GMM 1(SW) Carl Re lea FC1 Darrell Richardson GMM2(SW) Garcia Santiago FCff htU FC2(SW) Grady Booth I GMC(SW) Ronnie Douvia FCl(SW) Rick Brown GMMi(SW) Charles Drew FC2 Jack Cox FC2 Tim Dermodv FC2 David Selfe CF FC2(SV ) Donn Dietz GMM2 (SW) Stacy Adams XWK 103 CF V A Wf FC3 Scott Johnson 1 1 i red Robertson I ' ( : Rob Mvarado FC3 Kevin Kisielewki FC.t(SW) Tom Shankle FC3 Scott Fernandez Dc Castro FC3 Tob Miller I ( ' 3 ( hi is Thomas FC3 Chuck Hennessy GMM3 Valdez ft CA Division SJCM(SW) Thomas McGill STGl(SW) James Chermack STC1 Michael Edquisl 105 CA STCl(SW) Tucker Rosenbern STGl(SW)Kenl Weist STG2(SW) Patrick Milter STG3 James Hannah STG3 Andrew Kutyna STG3 Vincent Wrightsell STG3 Aaron Link TMSX Peter Winther TMSA Kevin Carter ■ •fr sflJ- CA STG2 Matthew Petersen STG2(SW) Michael Rump STG3 Alonzo Foskin STG3 Christian Meyer STG3 David Russell STG3 George While CE Division yyapzrs ETQSW A VVM Rand; unac ETKSW) David Salon I I . : ET2 Rand Millet IC2 Morris Scott ICl Greg Hohlidd n: 108 CE ETI(SW) Joseph Thompson ET2 Edward Manleufl ' el ET2(A W) William Martin ET2(SW)Jody Jeffries IC3 Zachan Roberts IC3 Miles Love 109 w FCCS(SW)Jon Sapper CO Division I GMC(SW) Sam Brasdis FC1(SW) Ed Ken in GMMIfSl I FC2 IXilc Corhitl Kl CO V GMMl(SW) Clayton Wentworth FC2 Ken Brooks GMG2 Mike Smallwood operations osa The Operations Department is headed by the " Ops Boss " or " Ops " , assisted by the " CICO " , and is made up of four divisions. OC (Communications), under the " Commo " , is made up of Signalmen and Radiomen. Signalmen (SM ' s) use flashing light, signal flags, semaphore and Morse code to communicate with other ships. They also gather intelligence on unknown and merchant shipping. Radiomen (RM ' s) make use of radios and satellite communications for all of ARLEIGH BURKE ' S message traffic and in- telligence. RM ' s also run the ship ' s MARS radiotelephone service. OD (Deck), under the 1st Lieutenant, consists of Boatswain ' s Mates (BM ' s) and non-designated Seamen. They are the experts in seamanship. OD operates and maintains the ship ' s small boats, cleaning gear and paint issue rooms, and all mooring lines. They preserve the ship ' s hull and main deck, operate the anchors, supervise mooring, anchoring, and alongside evolutions. BM ' s and Sea- men man the helm and " pipe " all words passed underway. They are the oldest rate in the Navy. OI (Intelligence), under the " ACICO " . is made up of Operations Specialists (OS ' s). They operate and monitor radar consoles in CIC and on the bridge for navigational plotting, surface and air tracking, and air intercept control. OS ' s also monitor the radiotelephone nets in CIC, along with Link- 1 1 . They also maintain all the charts for plotting ship ' s course. OT (Technical), under the " EWO " , consists of Electronic Warfare Technicians (EW ' s) and 1 Intel- ligence Specialist (IS). Their main job is anti-ship missile defense. This entails using the SLQ- (Slick) 32 passive receiver to detect enemy electronic emissions. They gather this intel and use it to plot enemy movement ' s. EW ' s also use chaff to deter a missile from hitting the ship. Operations Department met the challenge of MED 2-95. Most stood port and starboard watches during the strenuous operations in the Adriatic, and performed flawlessly. A 500th air intercept was achieved, along with countless underway replenishments and navigation details. 112 alraen other make ndin- . lated boats, bain id Sea- ivy. iperate ind air pith ] use it OSCS(SW) Roy Cox OSI(SW) Laurence- McGowan OS2(SW) Michael Blake OSC(SW) August Green OSI(SW) Daryl Trent OS2(SW)JoseCmtron 01 Division OSl Tim Watkins OSJ Thomas Fabre OSl David Wilson OS2(SW) Jeffrey Johnson 113 01 OS2(SW) Cha Newlund as.i ;,a walker 114 OS2 Robbie Lapham OS2 Howie McGahe} OS2 Mike Mehl OS2 Chris Pedersen OS2 John Reed OS2 Glen Rose OS3(SW) Doug Moseh) 0S3 Lester Ortega OSSR William Worthen ! 1 mgz ■ lm MT k BM3 Gabe Harris OD Division BMI(SW) James Everett BM2 SWI TedMamolo BM3 Abraham Ferrer OD Division BM3(SW) William Beasle) BMSNAdam Cohen BMSNRo) Delosreyes SN David Nguyen SN Chris Williams SN Craig Black S in;; IcUhcr S Brian McClinton SA Chns ( nti eros S A Stcuart Han kins MS SA Steven Petcrmann S 4J6 116 r n BMSN Francisco Loredo BMSN Galo Morreira BMSN Trent Nunley SN Brian LaBountv SA Steven McCravey SA Raphael McDouglc SA Shawn Seymour SA Christopher Cox 117 RMC(SW) Andrew Gibbs SM3(SW) Robert Avis RM3 Jason Beckner RM3 Corey Butler SMl(SW) Daniel Dunphy RM2 Neville Hollins RM3 Toby Meier RM2 Jose Ramos RM2(SW) Carl Walton R II(CC) Woody Wagner SMI(SW AW)Sonn ilson 118 oc Division RM3(SW) Don Shepherd 4 OT Division EWC(SW) John Moll ISC(AW) Thomas Higley EWl(SW) Keith Upchuicb £11 120 I OT 121 Engineering The Engineering Department is headed by the " CHENG " ' , and is made up of four divisions. A (Aux iliaries) Division, or " A-Gang " , under the " AUXO " , consists of Enginemen (EN ' s) and Firemen (FN). They are the Engineering Jack-of-All-Trades. and their equipment responsibilities are varied. They make all the ship ' s fresh water, maintain the 200 ton air conditioning units and provide all refrigeration services. Also included under their cognizance, are small boat operations, steering, anchoring mooring evolutions, laundry and galley equipment. E (Electrical) Division, under the " ELECO " , is manned by Electricians Mates (EM ' s) and Fire- men (FN). The " Sparkies " maintain the electrical distribution system in ARLEIGH BURKE. They are also responsible for maintaining hotel (pierside) services, such as shore power, heating, ventilation, and lighting. E Div. runs the electrical tool issue room, performs all maintenance on electrical power tools and safety inspections on personal electrical gear. MP (Main Propulsion) Division, under the " MPA " , is made up of Gas Turbine Systems Techni- cians, Mechanical (GSM ' s), and Electrical (GSE ' s). Their equipment responsibilities lie with the safe operation and maintenance of three gas turbine generators, and four marine gas turbine en- gines for propulsion. Added responsibilities include maintaining the ship ' s reduction gears. " The ship is on single generator ops " was a very rare occurrence aboard ARLEIGH BURKE during the deployment. R (Repair) Division, under the " DCA " , is comprised of Damage Controlmen (DC-men). Hull Maintenance Technicians (HT ' s), and Machinery Repairmen (MR ' s). Our DC-men maintain all shipboard firefighting equipment, and train ARLEIGH BURKE in all aspects of damage control. HT ' s maintain all plumbing and piping systems, and perform all welding, brazing, and cutting. MR ' s manufacture new parts from stock metal to repair damaged equipment. ARLEIGH BURKE ' s " Snipes " were proud to continue a long tradition of Naval Engineering Ex- cellence during Med Deployment 2-95. They maintained combat readiness through intensive training. This included Basic Engineering Casualty Control Evolutions (BECCEs), General Quar- ters, and Damage Control drills. Their drills and hard work contributed greatly to the ship ' s suc- cessful Engineering Training Group visit in July. 122 MP Division Mi GSM J Mark Silvia GSE2 Eric Tilghman GSM3 Richard Bodenmillcr GSE3 Timothy Eisenhauer lc GSE3 Robert Gray GSMFN Derrick Hoocc GSMFN Sean Scldcrs FN Shane Barron I Kc in Denn ° s A Division ( Y.S ' U ) aron Pnnglc ENl(SW) Frank Edwards .
