4 USS FIFE DESERT SHIELD! DESERT STORM 'ISSU-97
October Z 199Q a day that will live in infamy.
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
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. V -adwsfa-g.i,a.a S, . A-.- :a.1..f,2j ggf4fg.5.a sfgf L gegtgiggfgg J- ,g2:g2,Ag5.?ig3-gggg z l- l - : fr COMMENTARY
other duties were required of her. 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.

USS FIFE HISTORY
Uss Fife CDD-9919 the 29th Q
Spruance Class destroyer built by
Ingal1's Shipbuilding Division of
Litton Industries in Pascagoula, if
Mississippi, joined the Pacific Fleet
after commissioning in 1980.
Designed with the future in mind and the capacity for growth, the ship was completely i
overhauled in 1987 to add some of the most advanced Weapons in the Navy's arsenal. 1
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 force, or operate alone and quietly in search
of submarines. Truly a versatile, multi-mission combatant, Fife's primary missions are to operate
offensively in an Anti Submarine Warfare CASWD role an Anti Surface Warfare CASUWD 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 Sonar Suite This system rntergrates the ANXSQR 19 Tactical Towed Array Sonar the ANXSQS 53B
Hull Mounted Sonar the ANXSQQ 28 Sonar Signal Processing System and the Light Airbome
Multipurpose System CLamps Mark HD to provide accurate submarine target classification and location
The ASUW and shore strike capability roles are supported by the Tomahawk Weapon Systems CTWSD and
the Mark 41 Vertical Launching System CVLSD Fife also has secondary missions such as Shore
Bombardment CNGFSD Anti Air Warfare CAAWD escort duties and Search and Rescue CSARD In support
of these secondary missions Fife uses the Mark 86 Gun Fire Control System the NATO Sea Sparrow
Missile System CNSSMSD various long and short range search radars and various sophisticated satellite
Crew comfort and habrtabrlrty are also a major consideration of Fife s modern design Berthrng
compartments are spacious and the ship rs equipped with a crew s lounge weight room ship s store and
site TV system that allows use of cameras and videotape for training and entertainment The highly
automated weapons and engineering systems allow Fife to be manned by a small crew of 25 officers 29

DESERT SHIELD - SKUNK HUNT
SKUNK HUNT ROUTINE
FOR USS FIFE CREW
PACIFIC STARS AND STRIPES
December 6, 1990
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
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

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
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
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
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
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
During radio inquiries, Cleveland
explains that "the captain wants to make
sure that you are polite with everyone you

Cleveland. 28, said that "at a medium pace on

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
"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.

Training Pays Off
For Crews In
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.

THE THREAT FFIOIVI BELOW
Gulf waters erupted on 18 February when USS Tripoli ILPH -1 OJ, and USS Princeton ICG-591
were damaged by Iraqi-laid mines. Both explosions occured onbl a few hours apart during
mine-clearing operations some 70 miles off the Kuwaiti coast Q A

-' it explosion, from two probable influence mines,
damaged Princeton while she was providing air
I r ' defense coverage for minesweeping forces. The force
of the mine blast shook the 9600-ton cruiser but did not
take her immediately out of service. These incidents
brought to the surface the uhidden threat' that
concemed Navy and Marine Corp tacticians planning
an amphibious assualt on Kuwait.
At the time the warships were damaged, allied K
minesweepers were scanning a 20-mile long East-West .
channel off Kuwait. After Tripoli was damaged, the
minehunting teams found an extensive minefield across
the major shipping lanes laid in a barrier strip of three
rows, each about a mile wide and containing both

DESERT STORM - HEADLINE NEWS
DEVASTATION ON IRAQ
STRATEGIC TARGETS ELIMINATED
With lethal air strikes of historic
accuracy and potency, United
States and allies rained death and
devastation on Iraq Wednesday.
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
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
Packing 12 tons of bombs and
missiles under swept-back wings,
they streaked undetected at twice

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
Bombers hit deep in Iraq,
seeking out the most sensitive
targets -including missiles that
Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman
Colin Powell said the allied
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
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

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
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.

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
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
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
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
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

Rear Adm. March:
"Battle Group Alfa is home, and you
made it the most spectacular
homecoming I have ever witnessed.
Anticipation was high as we approached
Yokosuka and we were not
disappointed. The pride we felt was a
result of the sincere feelings displayed '
by the welcoming multitude that greeted
us. You made us feel like heroes and
though you didn't know many of us,
, 21.213 ,:
you made each and every one of us
feel like family.
we accomplished our mission
secure in the knowledge that not only
did we have your support, but just as
importantly, our families had your
support and for that we thank you. It
was a great day to be in uniform and
a suitable ending to a most successful
cruise. Thank you for all your efforts,

At Homecoming p
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
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
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
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
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
