The dark blue and gold of the shield are the colors which are traditionally asso- ciated with the Navy and symbolize the sea and excellence. The shield is divided into three sections to represent the air, the surface of the sea, and the depths. The bomb burst extends into all 3 areas of the shield to reflect the versatility and striking power of the Spruance Class Destroyer. Admiral Fife was an especially distinguished sub- mariner. The bomb burst, whose barbs ra- diate in all directions, also refers to the abil- ity of a submarine to attack without warn- ing in any direction. Thus the bomb bursts alludes to Admiral Fife ' s service as well as symbolizing the Destroyers mission of Anti- submarine Warfare. The dolphins, old mari- time symbols, represent Admiral Fife ' s out- standing career, which encompassed both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and World Wars I and II. They are adapted from the submarine badges and represent Ad- miral Fife ' s chosen field of service as a sub- mariner. The red torpedo alludes to his sub- marine command during World War II, while the red color denotes his active ser- vice during the war, as well as the destruc- tive power of the torpedo. The three gold discs on the torpedo represent the three distinguished service medals awarded to Admiral Fife for his exceptionally meritorious and distinguished service during the war. The ship ' s motto, Successum Merere Conemur, meaning endeavor to deserve success, appears on the gold scroll beneath the shield. USS FIFE (DD 991) Ship ' s Description FIFE, the 29th SPRUANCE Class destroyer built by Ingall ' s Shipbuilding Division of Litton Industries in Pascagoula, Mississippi, proudly joined the Pacific Fleet after commissioning in 1980. Designed with the future in mind and the capacity for growth, the ship was completely overhauled in 1987 to add some of the most advanced weapons in the Navy ' s arsenal. USS FIFE is powered by four LM-2500 gas turbine engines, which provide both the speed and response necessary to operate with the fastest Carrier or Battleship Task Group, or operate alone and quietly in search of submarines. Truly a versatile, multi-mission combatant, F IFE ' S pri- mary missions are to operate offensively in an Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) role, and Anti- Surface Warfare (ASUW) role, and present a strike capability on land. To support her primary ASW mission, FIFE employs a state of the art ASW combat system - the AN SQQ-89 suite. This system effectively integrates the AN SQR-19 Tactical Towed Array Sonar, the AN SQS-53B Hull Mounted Sonar, the AN SQQ-28 Sonar Signal Processing System, and the Light Airborne Multipurpose System (LAMPS Mark III) to provide accurate submarine target classification and location. The ASUW and shore strike capability roles are supported by the Tomahawk Weapon Systems (TWS) and the Mark 41 Vertical Launching System (VLS). FIFE also has secondary mis- sions such as Shore Bombardment (NGFS), Anti-Air Warfare (AAW), escort duties, and Search and Rescue (SAR). In support of these secondary missions, FIFE uses the Mark 86 Gun Fire Control System, the NATO Seasparrow Missile System (NSSMS), various long and short range search radars, and sophisticated satellite communications equipment. All of these systems and sensors are fed into the nerve center of the ship, the Combat Informa- tion Center (CIC), where the complex tasks of target identification, tracking, and weapons employment are integrated through computer, control consoles, and the Naval Tactical Data System (NTDS). From CIC the Commanding Officer or Tactical Action Officer (TAO) can direct the employment of FIFE ' S armament, which in includes: two Mark 45 5 " guns; two triple barrel Mark 32 Torpedo tubes; the SH-60B Lamps Mark II helicopter, capable of carrying two torpe- does; the 8-cell Mark 57 NSSMS missile launcher, two Mark 51 Close-in Weapon Systems (CIWS) 20mm rapid fire cannons; and the Harpoon and Tomahawk cruise missiles. The Mark 41 VLS, located on the forcastle, is capable of firing all variants of the Tomahawk missile and the verti- cal launch (ASROC) (VLA). VLS has the capacity to hold 61 missiles. Crew comfort and habitability are also a major consideration of FIFE modern design. Berthing compartments are spacious and the ship is equipped with a crew ' s library, lounge, weightroom, ship ' s store, and SITE TV system that allows use of cameras and videotape for training and en- tertainment. The highly automated weapons and engineering systems allow FIFE, the same size as a World War II Light Cruiser, to be manned by a relatively small crew of 20 Officers, 26 Chief Petty Officers, and 300 enlisted personnel. vU V ,tA COMMANDER LOUIS W. BAUER Commander Louis W. Bauer was born in Norfolk, Virginia on 8 April 1946. He attended San Diego State University, graduating in 1970 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting. Upon commissioning, he was assigned to the USS PYRO (AE-24) where he served as First Division and Weapons Officer. Upon detaching from PYRO, he was assigned as Executive Officer aboard USS GEN- ESEE (AOG-8). Following graduation from the U.S. Naval Destroyer School in May 1973, Com- mander Bauer was assigned as Chief Engineer aboard USS PATTERSON (FF- 1061). Subsequent sea tours include USS HAWKINS (DD-873) as Weapons Offi- cer, USS SEATTLE (AOE-3) as Operations Officer and Navigator, USS BELKNAP (CG-26) as Chief Engineer, and USS CARON (DD-970) as Executive Officer. CDR Bauer ' s shore assignments have included Commander Operational Test and Evaluation Force, where he served as an Operational Test Director for Satellite Communications Systems; Director of the Engineering Specialty Training Department at Surface Warfare Officers School; and as a student in the College of Naval Warfare at the Naval War College. While attending the Naval War College, Commander Bauer received a Master of Science Degree in Management from Salve Regina College. In addition to the various service medals, Commander Bauer has been awarded the Meritorious Ser- vice Medal, the Navy Commenda- tion Medal on two occasions, and Meritorious Unit Citation. EXECUTIVE OFFICER The Executive Officer (XO), the next senior line offi- cer aboard, is responsible for all matters relating to the personnel, routine, and discipline of the ship.

LCDR MP. STEPHENSON COMMAND SENIOR ENLISTED ADVISOR The Command Senior Enlisted Advisor (C SEA) assists the Commanaing Officer and Executive Officer in formulating poli- cy that concerns the enlisted personnel of the command. The C SEA ' s advice is particularly helpful to the command on matters concerning the morale ana qual- ity of life for enlisted personnel and their dependents, as well as helping to solve personal problems or correcting situa- tions that could be potential problems. Through the C SEA, every sailor, regard- less of rank or station, has a secure line of communications. EMCS R.A.

HOLDEN COMBAT SYSTEMS OFFICER CA DIVISION CA Division is comprised of 14 Sonar Technicians (STG) and 2 Torpedomen (TM). Their jobs are many and varied, often one man will accomplish several jobs over a wide range of expertise, due to low manning. The STG ' s are responsible for the searching, tracking, analyzing, and classifying of underwater acoustic sources. They compile oceanographic data and prepare the acoustic briefs for the command. Although ex- pert operations are vital to FIFE ' S ASW mission, the Sonarmen must also, unlike most rates, maintain a wide assortment of complex electronic systems. From the hull moun- ted ,V BEE " , towed array and fire control systems, to the Fathometer, the sonar gang shows its drive and professionalism by " keeping their gear up. " The TM ' s take care of our " fish " and its handling systems. Their duties run from the mundane chore of waxing to the business end of Antisubmarine Warfare, fire the tubes. Their skills at hydraulic, pneumatic, and electrical trouble shooting keep FIFE ' S ASW teeth sharp. These are the men of CA Division. They are " the record breakers, " second to none and the reason their " adversaries " are only the second best in the west.

However, with the drive of editor Ben Foxworth, the long hours spent on photographing the crew at work and at leisure by both Ben, John Gallock, Mike McGuire, and countless contributions by the crew, and the continuous advertising and marketing by Tim Miller all combined to make (we hope) a memorable treasure for all FIFE crewmembers and their families. It was not easy, we spent many off duty hours putting the finishing touches on the book, and experienced many failures. However, it ' s done - here it is - we hope you enjoy it and look forward to next year ' s product.
