And for the USS Fife, what had previously been scheduled as a pleasure cruise had become a vision of stark reality .. . crisis lay on the horizon With the invasion of Kuwait by Saddam Hussein and his Iraqi army, FiTe's deployment scheduk was drastically changed to support operations in the Arabian Gulf soon to become known as Operation Desert Shield In early October, Fife deployed as a part of Battlegroup Alpha, commencing what would tum out to beome a six month deployment. As scheduled, the Battlegroup made initial stops in Subic Bay, R.P. and then in Singapore, what would tum out to be one of the last liberty ports the sailors would see for quite some time. By late October and early November, the Battlegroup had transitted the Straits of Malacca, and crossed the Bay of Bengal into the Indian Ocean. Early in November, Fife anivecl on station to relieve the USS Macdonough to conduct Maritime Interdiction Force operations CMIFD in accordance with the embargo placed on Iraq. Fife entered the Arabian Gulf for the first time on I6 November in company with the USS Midway, the USS Mobile Bay, and the USNS Walter S. Diehl. By early December, Fife had conducted hundreds of vessel interceptions in the MIF role. Fife was also able to make portcalls .in Abu Dhabi and Bahrain, where important preparations were made for her preparadness later in the conflict. Underway for the latter part of December and early january, Fife participated in two significant boardings of suspect vessels, both flying the Iraqi flag. The first was the well publicized Ibn Khaldoon, a Hpeace shipl' that was canying milk, medicine, and sugar to Iraq. Representatives of the crew were part of the multinational force that intercepted and conducted a search of the vessel. Fife spent about a week escorting the vessel until 4-134,35 Messier V ' fm W.

The second Iraqi vessel intercepted by the Fife was the Ain Zalah, which was subsequently boarded and searched. Fife also participated in a search and rescue in the Straits of I-Iormuz for a sunken dhow, the only survivors of which were found by Fife's own air detachment. In addition, Fife responded to the distress call of a sinking ship in the Straits of Horrnuz, and stood by to render assistance. For the remainder of Fifeis time in the Arabian Gulf, she and her crew contributed directly to the war effort that was waged against Iraq. Fife was responsible for shooting approximately ZOM of all Tomahawks shot at Iraq during the Gulf war. In addition, other significant missions included the search for mines, aircraft control, intelligence collection, escort duties, and in certain instances, air defense when it was required. just prior to outchopping from the Gulf, Fife spent much of her time in the mined oilfields around Kuwait, and in more than one instance was required to lead amphibious support ships thru the mine swept channel to the Kuwait coastline. On the 10th of March, 1991, Battlegroup Alpha departed the Arabian Gulf. The group's efforts were well rewarded on the retum home with numerous liberty ports. Fife made stops in Phuket, Thailand, the "land of smilesn, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Subic Bay before their return to Yokosuka. Fife was also granted the opportunity to purge her crew of all "Wogs" between Singapore and Hong Kong as she made a quick trip down below the equator. On the morning of April 17th, Fife made her triumphant return into Yokosuka harbor. She and her crew were greeted by family and loved ones, a Navy band, and a welcome home party. Though the period was a lengthy and trying time for many, Fife weathered the storm, further attesting to the pride and professionalism of the sailors of the United States Navy. ,L J, V I .,i. ,.

I t 4 l DESERT SHIELD - SKUNK HUNT SKUNK HUNT ROUTINE FOR USS FIFE CREW PACIFIC STARS AND STRIPES Thursday December 6, 1990 Stripes, .Iagodzinski ABOARD THE USS FIFE - Under a bright half moon, the Gulf of Oman shines like liquid silver as this destroyer cruises across the waterway on its nightly search for skunks, bogies and goblins. On the bridge, a radarman's voice carries through the darkness: "Officer of the deck, we've spotted a new skunk at bearing one one four, range 41,600 yards. 4'Aye, change course One-twenty degrees," says Lt. Jeff Tall, ordering the ship on an intercept path. Tall, 29, is a fire control officer from Leominster, Mass., and on this night he's x. -4 .. ...na A crewman guides an SH-3 helfcopter onto the fantail ofthe USS Fife. in charge of the watch team aboard. The pilot house is unlit except for the glow of a few red bulbs and dim green radar screens. Cool breezes drift in through an open passageway. Tall explains that skunk is Navy jargon for an unidentified ship appearing on radar, while bogies are unknown aircraft and goblins are submarines. The Fifels primary mission in other waters is submarine hunting. But the shallow Persian Gulf region is a poor habitat for subs, so few if any of them ever enter the area. The destroyer also scans the skies for hostile aircraft, but none have been sighted, as the Gulf of Oman lies far out of range of Iraqi warplanes. So the Fife's crew devotes much of its time to spotting and intercepting commercial ships in enforcement of the U.N. embargo of Iraq. The Fife and other escort ships in the USS Midway Battle Group have been steaming through Mideastern waters since arriving from Yokosuka Naval Base, Japan, on Nov. 1. The destroyer uses radar and visual sightings from its helicopter, as well as shipboard radar, to spot merchant vessels sailing through the region. "I've seen some hellacious big ships out here - some of these tankers displace 395,000 tons empty," Tall says. "That's big compared to a 95,000-ton aircraft carrier." Tall adds that the Fife has "come upon a lot of fishing boats too. They're wooden so they don't 'paint' Qshow upj on our radar." He says this has caused some navigation problems, particularly in the Persian Gulf, which is the home to fleets ofthese vessels. Iraqi vessels, however, are nonexistent in the Gulf. In fact, Navy official say they have come across no Iraqi tankers or cargo ships in the region since October because the vessels could not hide from the embargo ships of the multinational fleet. Iraqi ships "have a pretty slim chance of getting through" the Persian Gulf undetected, says Lt. Cdr, Lee Rosenberg, 36, the ship's executive officer. "There's only a few ports to go to in Iraq and occupied Kuwaitf' says the Atlanta native. The five warships in the Midway Battle Group have taken part in more than 300 radio intercepts, but have made no boardings in their month long Gulfpatrols. During a radio intercept, the destroyer sets a course for a ship that it has detected on radar. After closing to within 15 miles, the Fife flashes a light beam to get the unknown ship's attention. Then the Fife radios the vessel and asks its origin, destination, registry and cargo, If the Fife's watch officer is satisfied with the answers, he lets the ship pass. If unsatisfied, the destroyer tails the cargo vessel while the crew awaits orders from Navy central command in Bahrain. Actions like shots fired across the bows of reluctant ships, or boardings, only take place with instructions from central command. Back on the bridge, Chief Petty Officer Michael Cleveland, a sonar technician from Memphis, is the junior officer of the watch. During radio inquiries, Cleveland explains that "the captain wants to make sure that you are polite with everyone you 48 USS FIFE DESERT SHIELD! DESERT STORM 1990.91 Crewmen aboard the Fife watch rounds from the ship's 5-inch gun impact in the water during a live-fire exercise in the Gulf of Oman. intercept, that you get the information you want and then go on your way? Cleveland. 28, said that "at a medium pace on a four-hour watch we intercept three or four people. The most I've done is nine of these guys. Nine finterceptsj is a really busy watch, but then I like it when it's busy - gives you something to do." Behind Cleveland a radarman sounds the distance between the destroyer and the ship it will intercept. "Eleven miles, aye," says Tall. "How about lighting up and flashing him,', he says, referring to the use of the signal light. At once the beam flickers across the water as a signalman works the shutters. Then Cleveland goes to work. "Merchant vessel off my starboard beam on a course of l-4-8, speed 16 knots, this is U.S. Navy warship ll nautical miles off your port beam flashing you with white light. Request you switch to channel one zero over." A tiny voice answers the radio call: f'Roger U.S. warship. This is Bauriga, call sign is five- lima victor-foxtrot over." "Roger, sir, request your flag and pOrI Of registry, overf' "My flag is Liberia, port of registry is same." Cleveland then asks the ship's cargo, port of origin and destination. "My cargo is Arabian light and Arabian medium crude Coilj. My last port of call iS Juaymah fSaudi Arabiab, and my destination is New Orleans." i'He's going to New Orleansf, Cleveland says to himself. "I don't have a problem with that." Then to the merchant: "Roger sir, thank yOU fOr your cooperation and have a pleasant watch. This is U.S. warship standing by channel one-six.

Training Pays Off For Crews In Ship Boarding By Rob Jagodzinski Stripes Mideast Correspondent ABOARD THE USS FIFE - Two months ago, Coast Guard Drug Interdiction Teams aboard this destroyer and the USS Oldendorf began teaching crewmen how to safely board and search merchant ships for forbidden cargo. The training paid off Wednesday in the North Arabian Sea when search teams from the Fife, Oldendorf and Australian frigate Sydney boarded an Iraqi-flagged cargo vessel. Bound for the Iraqi port of Basrah, the Ibn Khaldoon refused to stop until forced to do so by U.S. troops inserted by helicopter. A U.S.-Australian team boarded the 11,000- ton freighter and, after a brief scuffle, searched the ship, found cargo prohibited by the U.N. embargo and diverted the ship to another port. It was the first North Arabian Sea boarding since the Oldendorf and Fife arrived Nov. 1 from Yokosuka Naval Base, Japan, in a battle group formed around the carrier USS Midway. Among the more than 700 boardings in the past four months, this was one of the first few that required use of force.

At the time the warships were damaged, allied K minesweepers were scanning a 20-mile long East-West . channel off Kuwait.

As a foggy dawn broke in the Middle East, Iraqis 700-plane air force was decimated and much of Saddam Hussein's elite Rep- ublican Guard was destroyed, the Pentagon said. uWeIve executed the first of what will be a whole series of very effective air sortiesj' says former secretary of State Al Haig. "This will continue H- I have no doubt about that." More than 1 million troops - facing off in the biggest array of military muscle since World War II - were poised for ground warfare, but the United States instead unleashed aerial attacks of surgical precision. At4:50p.m. EST--50 minutes after midnight in Iraq -- scores of computer guided F-l5E Eagles were scrambled from Saudi air bases. Packing 12 tons of bombs and missiles under swept-back wings, they streaked undetected at twice the speed of sound toward Baghdad. At 7 p.m. EST they swooped down at 600 mph to knock out Iraqi air defense systems. Anti-aircraft fire, Iraq's only hope for repulsing the U.S. by Judy Keen USA Today bombers, seemed ineffective as aircraft pounded the capital. Navy FXA-18s left carriers in the region to provide air support to the assault force and defend against any Iraqi retaliation by air. Bombers hit deep in Iraq, seeking out the most sensitive targets -including missiles that threatened Israel. Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Colin Powell said the allied offensivemetuno airresistancef' and the "operation appears to have gone very well.', The U.S. force of 425,000 - the largest deployed overseas since the Vietnam War, when 545,000 U.S. soldiers were involved - began the battle for Kuwait withasurprise,non-stop, 30-minute air barrage. Allied forces, led by U.S., Saudi and British bombers, unleashed a pinpoint attack, including the launching of up to 100 cruise missiles -their first wartime use. An "ace in the hole" for the United States was the fact that military leaders were able to jam Iraqi communications so effectively that "when Saddam Hussein picked up the phone, the phone would be dead," said Rep. Les Aspin, chairman ofthe House Armed Services Committee. Thick clouds of inky black 56 USS FIFE DESERT SHIELDXDESEHT STUFIM 7990-97 smoke rose from Baghdad. Lights flickered, then went out. The sky was illuminated by flashes of anti-aircraft missiles. Radio Baghdad's defiant rhetoric was silent through the onslaught, although Saddam later broadcast to his people. Within hours of the first bombing run, there were reports that all U.S. fighters made it safely back. The word from U.S. officials: Only after battle damage assessments would surrender be considered. U.S. spy satellites, hovering above the battle, photographed the devastation. Bush, his reputation and the nation's security at stake, decided Monday to start the war at 7 p.m. It was the most vital decision of his presidency, with the map of the Middle East, the world economy and his place in history at stake. Bush signed the executive order for the attack Tuesday. Bush ordered the attack after certifying that no last-minute diplomatic initiatives were given any chance of success.

TDIVIAHAWK Tomahawk infligbl bqfore booster separation. TOMAHAWK PRECISION SCALPS IRAQI MILITARY NUNN: CRUISE Mlssu.E WORTH ITS PRICE .Iohn H. Cushman Jr. The New York Times WASHINGTON - The Allied onslaught against Iraq included the first use in combat of the Tomahawk Sea-Launched Cruise Missile, an unmanned weapon that for a decade has promised to alter the course of future conflicts. Among the very first shots fired were Tomahawks from Navy ships - more than 100 of these long-range guided-missiles by Thursday morning. The missiles inflicted major damage at little or no risk to American personnel. The missile cruises under computer control to targets hundreds of miles away, delivering with great accuracy a warhead powerful enough to demolish a concret building. Officials said such explosions rocked Baghdad in the opening minutes of the attack. The Tomahawks fired at Baghdad came from several warships, including the USS Missouri, USS Wisconsin, USS Fife and USS Leftwich located about 600 miles away in the Persian Gulf. Navy officials said they were programmed to hit air defences in the Iraqi capital just moments before U.S. pilots arrived on the scene. Like most nations, Iraq lacks an effective defense against the Tomahawk, according to Jeff Shaffer, military analyst with The Center for Strategic and International Studies. He said the missiles would be vulnerable only if Iraqi jets had a"look-down, shoot-downv radar capability. The missiles are also carried aboard many ofthe cruisers, destroyers, and submarines in the region. Abattleship has launching tubes for 32 of the weapons, the Navy is assumed to have several hundred of the missiles on hand. The Tomahawk, which is about 25 feet long and looks like a rocket with stubby wings, is launched vertically, but after it's initial acceleration, a smallturbofanenginewhichoperates like an airplane engine, takes over. The versions used against Iraq can fly about 800 miles. Out of all the new weapons on trial in Iraq, it was the Tomahawk that was singled out for high praise by Gen. Colin Powell, Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff. "Pm extremely pleased with the effectiveness ofthe cruise missiles," Powell said. "They were used against a variety of targets where their precision was required for the target, or because of the air defense system around those targets, we felt that an unmanned weapon was the best system to use?

A4 l A 4' 41 HDIVIECOIVIING gg, Fife Flres X Kisses 1' " lff' At Homecoming p Celebration Familes of Team Fife had been anxiously awaiting April l7. The day of their sailors return. The new grand Harbor Master Pier was the place to be for these families. The new pier, completed and dedicated April 16, was a great setting for a homecoming celebration. Many were on-site as early as 6 a.m. preparing for the activities that were to follow. The band began to play music as MWR employees arranged food and drinks as well as ballon bouquets to fly from the edges of the pier. As time passed, the activity on the pier intensified. Hands shook with excitement as the ship appeared through the fog lying on top of the water. The clouds lifted as the ship came through, bringing with it the sunshine that remained for the rest of the day. The ship pulled up to the pier. The feeling of pride could be felt everywhere. The guys, dressed in blues, were heroes and everyone knew it. Security personnel found themselves giving many friendly reminders to stay in the safty zone as families surged forward. The excitement of the families beamed as Capt. Cselectj Curt Kemp came down the brow to greet his family with a rose for his daughter, Casey, and hugs and kisses for his wife, Ann and son Ian. One special sailor lCl Jerry Peterson was greeted by his wife Kazue and newborn son Jerry Jr. This was his first time to see his beautiful son and his excitement was evident to all. After Kemp greeted his family, everyone ran up the brow to search . M g for their loved ones. Which way . , , to go was no question because they had already spotted their f loved ones on the deck as the ship t pulled in to tie up to the dock. Families literally came from all over to welcome Team Fife, including Operations Specialist 3rd Class James Epstein's family who jouneyed all the way from Delphos, Ohio for this -1 .X 1,-.1 homecoming. -of For those returning Desert Storm victors not greeted by hugs and kisses, there were gallons of refreshments, food and entertainment - but most of all .ff thethrillof being welcomed home 'KAV F in as heroes!

This cruisebook is the culmination of countless hours of effort and sacrifice by many people. As in all such endeavors there are people who made contributions that may not be readily apparent, but were instrumental in the creation of this book. The cruisebook staff would like to take this opportunity to express our most sincere thanks to these people. Although more than just a collection ofpictures, what would a cruisebook be without photos? Therefore, a special thanks to all those who supplied the many wonderful photos. To Fleet Imaging Facility Pacific in Yokosuka, a big "BZ"for thefantastic job ofprocessing the majority ofprints and slides used in this book. For the outstanding opening commentary by LTJG Trimble, our greatest appreciation. To ChiefMix and "Foo-boy", thanks for thefunny art work. To the whole crew of the Fife we would like to extend a special thanks. To all at Obun Printing Co., Inc. in Tokyo - and in particular to their creative genius Patrick Lovell -- our deepest gratitudefor all the care they put into our cruise book. Last, but not least, a very special thanks to our wives who displayed limitless tolerance and patience throughout the weeks of late night editing sessions - undertaken at their expense. Andfinally, to ourfavorite hostess and critic Lydia Flowers, a heartfelt "thank youi' for without her support this project would not have been bearable. 96 USS FIFE DESERT SHIELD!
