She has the ability to sweep all types of influence and contact,jmines., if P 9 ENDURANCE visits many' different ports along the West Coast and has deployed to the Western Pacific several times since commissioning. While in the Western Pacific, ENDURANCE has visited such places as the Philippines, Japan, Guam, Taiwan, Korea, Viet Nam and Hong Kong. The ENDURANCE was presented the Navy Unit Commendation by the Secretary of the Navy for her "exceptionally meritorious service" during the WESTPAC deployment which ended in August 1966. This gave her the distinction of being the first Minesweeper since the Korean War to receive such an honor. Since commissioning, the USS ENDURANCE has undergone several extensive shipyard overhauls, placing her among the most advanced minesweepers in the world. ln addition to the most modern of influence mine- sweeping equipment, the ENDURANCE has such improvements as the new SOG-14 lVlinehunting Sonar, a greatly enlarged Combat information Center, and the latest sophisticated communications equipment. To increase the safety factor of living within a wooden hull, a light-water firefighting system, similar to those used in the hanger decks of the super carriers, is installed throughout the larger part of the ship.

Z1-ZZ, 1970 On the evening of 21 November 1970, U.S.S. ENDURANCE was enroute to Market Time Patrol Area Seven as Task Unit 115.6.7, following an underway replenishment. Enroute to the area, the U.S.S. ENDURANCE became involved in,an operation with two larger Coast Guard cutters which concerned the interception of a potential enemy arms infiltration trawler. As the action developed, ENDURANCE closed, challenged, and identified the possible infiltrator as ahheavily armed SL3-type trawler, transporting arms and ammunition to the Viet Cong in the lVlekong Delta Area. The trawler did not respond to challenges, and ENDURANCE, after unsuccessful warning shots, took the trawleruunder destructive fire from all mounts that could be brought to bear. The trawler immediately began to return fire with a 75 IVllVl recoilless rifle and heavy machine guns, and made a determined attempt to ram ENDURANCE. ENDURANCE outmaneuvered the trawler, while firing heavily into the cargo and ship control areas, after nearly twenty minutes of gunfire exchange and heavy casualties, the trawler broke off from the engagementwith EN DU RANCE, and began to close the coast. Shortly thereafter, EN DU RANCE directed the five-inch gunfire of the Coast Guard cutters against the trawler, the fire was effective, and at 0018 on 22 November, the trawler was observed to explode and sink in shallow water close to the- coast of Vietnam. Y This battle action, in which ENDURANCE played a key role, resulted in the destruction of an enemy infiltration trawler, denying to the enemy Viet Cong in the lVlekong Delta the arms, ammunition, and supplies they need so desperately to continue their war efforts. For their outstanding and heroic performance under enemy fire, EN DU FRANCE sailors received a total of seven Bronze Stars, nine Navy Commendation lVledaIs, and nine Navy Achievement lVledals, and all hands received the Combat Action Ribbon. In addition, the ENDURANCE was recommended for award of the Presidential Unit Citation.
