Land's ship's crest was designed with the assistance of the U.S. Army Department of Heraldry. The field of the shield, with its blue and yellow background, suggest chasm with the red bar serving as a ' bridge. The upper edge of the bar is representative of mountain peaks and the lower edge of flowing water, together, they simulate the Royal Gorge in Colorado, where Emory S. Land was born. The three stars indicate Vice Admiral Land, s leadership, denote his highest rank and refer to his service in the three wars, with Spain, World War I Cwhen he was awarded the Navy Cross, represented by the cross on the collar of the sea horsej and World War II. The trident is associated with the Neptune, the 'gRuler of the Seasj, and is symbolic of a Sailor's knowledge of the sea. The sea horse represents the submarine tender as the Navy's workhorse, a theme which is further expressed in the ship' s motto UOPERARIUS INDEFESSUS MARISQ, which translates literally as, '6Tireless Worker of the Sea." The anchor denotes seaworthiness and the atomic symbol is indicative of the ship' s capability to repair and support nuclear powered ships.

LAND supported eight submarines, five surface combatants, four mine countenneasure ships, three Coast Guard cutters, three Army LCUs and coastal surface small craft. About 300 legal documents and 200 tax returns were prepared for crew members of other ships. Throughout the stay at Souda Bay, security was a concem. Several antiwar demonstrations were held outside the base, including one with 2,000 protesters. EMORY S. LAND served as the afloat command center for force protection, contributing small boats to patrol, protecting nearby ships and repairing the flotilla of patrol craft guarding the harbor. Several submarine commanding officers praised the ship, s crew for their work. Commander. Jeffrey S. Currer, commanding officer of the fast-attack submarine Pittsburgh, said Emory S. Land team got more done in four days than other repair facilities have accomplished in two weeks. "They took all the jobs we had and asked for more. We loaded their shops to capacity , and they got it all donej' said Currer, in a statement provided by Navy public affairs. ESL Sailiors fire up the grill.

LAND made the routine preparations to get underway just as they always did, but unlike most departures many Sailors said good-bye to their families, their friends and their homes not knowing when they would return. Although the LAND would not be fighting on the front lines, by supporting those who would, the sub tender and her crew played an important role in Operation IRAQI FREEDOM by maintaining and repairing United States submarines. During what turned out to be a deployment of more than two months the crew performed their mission miraculouslyg at one point working on 4 submarines at one time. Aher nearly three months of hard work and separation from their loved ones, the USS EMORY S. LAND returned home to Santo Stefano, Italy where proud families and friends awaited their arrival with open arms. "I think it's awesome! I 'm really proud that they were out there supporting our country in IRAQI FREEDOM. I 'm so proud to be his wie and be apart of all of this and know that they were out there defending our country and protecting our rights, U exclaimed family member, Cher Knupp. In addition to the warm welcome from family and friends, LAND Sailors were also greeted by the Mayor of La Maddalena, Rosanna Giudice. "I am happy to be able to come to Santo Stefano to welcome the ship upon its return. From the simple motive that you American friends are a major part of this community. " said Giudice.

The Life of a Sailor More often than not, the day begins for a Sailor before the sun rises and ends after the sun sets. Most people never hear about the tireless efortsthe Sailors put forth each day in defense of their country, in support of freedom. T he job ofa Sailor could be as routine as hauling in aline or as breathtaking as launching a jet from the flight deck of an aircraft carrier, but in the end it doesn't matter to a Sailor as long its done well. It is this pride in service that makes a Sailor in the United States Navy so special. , l A typical day for a Sailor would exhaust theaverage man or woman. However, Sailors are anything but average. Waking before dawn, the Sailor heads to the mess decks with hundreds of others. These are the men and women tasked each day with protecting the greatest country in the world. These are the Sailors of the U.S. Navy. At sea, they have no family orfriends for support during the ddficult times in their lives, they have only each other to turn to,' and they do it every day. y Ajier breakfast, it is time to head to work. No ,matter the job, the Sailors will put forth a maximum ejfort for they know that what they do today will have a profound impact on tomorrow. It has been this way for well overa century. The essence of what a Sailor is has never changed. Time may pass, but a Sailor will always attack any job with the utmost energy and commitment. ' After a day of intense labor, the Sailor has precious little time to relax. But the sailor does, and after reading a book or watching maybe 10 minutes of television heads to the rack to sleep soundly. As the Sailor sleeps the waves lap against the hull of the shun, a mobile example of U.S. power and diplomacy. Tomorrow is a dyfferent day but the Sailor remains the same...a young man or woman symbolic of Honor, Courage and Commitment. , , .lg J Y r w X Q WW, ,. Mo' 4.

LAND CAS 395 completed a sucessful underway replenishment with USNS PATUXENTCT-AO 2015. The PATUXENT transferred a total of 450,000 gallons of fuel along with various other supplies during the UNREP. The UNREP provided more than fuel and supplies to the crewg it also gave them a unique, invaluable opportunity to train. These types of operations are important exercises for the Land. Itls been a while since the ship has done a refueling at sea. Itis a very com- plex and potentially dangerous evolution. It's two really big ships ma- neuvering in close proximity to one another. With our high turnover rate with personnel it's really important that we do this because we only get the opportunity to do one of these maybe once a year or so.
