I Dedication As you rummage through this fine cruise book, reminiscing about our recently completed I976-I977 Mediterranean deployment, I hope you will take the time to realize just how suc- cessful a cruise it was. Rarely do Mediterranean cruises go so smoothly; rarely indeed, do the amphibious forces so ably perform the variety of missions in the variety of places— as sched- uled and on schedule. But no one person or one department can take major credit for our suc- cess; every man onboard, doing his job as best he could, provided EL PASO with six months of success. The development of teamwork, stressed continually during the months of preparation for the Med., saw fruition in our proper and entirely safe completion of all assigned tasks. It was a most rewarding deployment. For most of us, the memories gathered during these past six months will last a life time. This cruise book will help you remember. Read it and re-enjoy! And thank you all for a superb job. W. H. Greiwe CAPT, USN Commanding Officer CAPTAIN WILLIAM H. GREIWE Captain William H.

Command History USS EL PASO (LKA 117) is assigned to Amphibious Squadron SIX, United States Atlantic Fleet. An LKA, Amphibious Cargo Ship, is designed to transport and land combat equipment and material, with attendant personnel, in an amphibious assault. Armed with 11 assault boats and improved cargo handling systems, the 576-foot, 29-knot EL PASO possesses a powerful capability for supporting amphibious assaults that is beyond the reach of previous LKA-type ships. Her four " Mike 8 " boats, capable of landing 60-ton tanks, are the largest landing craft hoisted aboard a navy ship. Her improved cargo handling system includes special elevators, an enlarged helicopter plat- form, and 12 booms (of which two are capable of handling loads up to 70 tons). The engine room can be operated by only five or six men because of her automated engineering systems, as well as a propulsion system which can be directly controlled from the bridge. EL PASO was constructed by the Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Company in Newport News, Virginia and launched 17 May 1968 by her sponsor Mrs. John G. Tower, wife of Senator Tower of Texas. The ship is named for the City and County of El Paso, Texas, and is the second naval ship to bear the name; the first was the patrol frigate PF-41, commissioned in 1943 and saw service in the Pacific Theater during World War II. Since her commissioning on 17 January 1970, EL PASO ' s schedule has been a busy one. In September of 1970, EL PASO began her first of six successful Mediterranean deployment and numerous Caribbean cruises. EL PASO has visited Europe, South and Central America, Cuba, Haiti, Peurto Rico and the Virgin Islands. The ship underwent its first overhaul in July 1974. Upon her successful completion in March 1975, EL PASO rejoined the " AMPHIBS " , commencing a busy and demanding schedule. EL PASO received outstanding grades during extensive refresher training conducted by Fleet Training Center, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba during the spring of 1975. -After a quick work-up with Amphibious Squadron TWO, EL PASO left in late July for her fifth Mediter- ranean deployment. The ship participated in seven amphibious exercises, including the NATO operation " Deep Express " , and made port visits to Spain, France, and Italy. After EL PASO ' s return to the United States in Feb- ruary 1975, she made several Caribbean cruises and participated in exercises " Aloud Charlie " , " Solid Shield 76 " , and a Reserve Marine Unit Landing Exercise (RESMAULEX). EL PASO deployed to the Mediterranean in November 1976 as the flagship of Amphibious Squadron SIX. While the Flag was embarked, the ship received numerous commendations for support provided to the COMPHIBRON SIX. Staff. The ship participated in many amphibious exercises, including the fleet exercise. " National Week XXII " . EL PASO returned to the United States in May 1977. To date, EL PASO has received many awards, including the Battle Efficiency Award for 1971, Departmental Excellence Awards, the Arleigh Burke Trophy for a ship showing the greatest improvement in Battle Efficiency, and the 1971 NEY Award for Food Preparation. EL PASO currently displays the Operations " E " in gold (fifth consecutive award) and red " DC " . The ship added to her Atlantic Fleet reputation by winning the Commander, Naval Surface Force Atlantic ' s first annual " Ciolden Anchor " Award for large ships in 1975. The Golden Anchor Award is given to ships which demonstrate excellence in career motivation and retention programs. To accentuate the achievement, FL PASO had gold painted anchors for one year. Captain W. S. Guthrie Commander , Amphibious Squadron Six In the early days of the deployment EL PASO became the PHIBRON SIX Flagship, carrying the Commander of Amphibious Squadron Six and his staff. EL PASO proved its versatility by meeting all logistic and communications requirements imposed on her.

Combat Information Center along with strong backing by the Communications and Electronic Divisions was able to achieve far above the minimum grade of 88 on all competitive drills. Along with completing successfully such drill as the Z-IO-CC, Z-12-CC, and Z-14-CC Combat Information Center also had to insure that all yearly training exercises were properly completed, that there were no reported security violations and that there was a satisfactory performance during all major Fleet exercises in port. A1S0...BZ to the Communicators COMMUNICATIONS PERFORMANCE EL PASO FEB 77 1. I CONTINUE TO BE IMPRESSED WITH THE PER- FORMANCE OF YOUR COMMUNICATIONS GANG. DURING NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER, THEY PROVED THEIR ABILITY AS OPERATORS BY SUC- CESSFULLY OVERCOMING THE TRAUMA OF A TENFOLD INCREASE IN TRAFFIC LOAD DURING OPS AS IF 61 FLAGSHIP. I CONSIDERED THEIR PERFORMANCE TO BE OUTSTANDING. 2. REF A DEMONSTRATES TO MY SATISFACTION THAT YOUR COMM OPERATORS ARE ALSO OUT- STANDING CIRCUIT ARCHITECTS. THE COMPRE- HENSIVE RECOMMENDATIONS CONTAINED IN REF A DEMONSTRATE AN EXEMPLARY RESPONSIVE- NESS TO NAVCAMS M D ' S NEED FOR DIALOGUE WITH FLEET CUSTOMERS. 3. PLEASE EXPRESS MY WELL DONE TO YOUR COMM ORGANIZATION. Gunnery Ops GENERAL QUARTERS, GENERAL QUARTERS. All hands man your BATTLE STATIONS! This call was heard often on EL PASO and prompted quick action by all hands. The life of a warship and the capability it has for carrying out it ' s mission can depend on the conditions of it ' s weapons and the expertise of the gun crews. EL PASO ' s gun crews and supporting personnel practiced often. On all, over 500 3 " 50 rounds were spent in firing practice. Helo Ops The control and landing operation of helicopters on EL PASO was the responsibility of the flight deck crew. Helicopters were an important part of life on the ship throughout the deployment. Mail, stores, people— all could and were helicoptered aboard with the assistance of the flight deck crew. " Flight quarters, flight quarters, all hands man your flight quarters stations! " , was heard dozens of times. Underway Replenishment Far out to sea, the lifeline of a ship is another ship carrying the supplies and parts needed to keep the ship at sea and not in port. The underway replenishment evolution was used several times during the deployment for this purpose. The tense excitement of an approach to another ship, the beauty of two vessels moving side by side on the same course, the dexterity of the conning officer and pilot house crew made these times more notable and memorable than any other underway. EL PASO narrowly escaped damage on one occassion when the USNS PAWCATUCK lost steering control. Lines between the two ships were retrieved and ported in an emergency fashion and EL PASO ' s skipper skillfully kept us out of the way of PAWCATUCK.
