I THE WORLD © USS FLINT (AE 32) 1990 DEPLOYMENT The 1990 cruise was suppose t be fairh sleepy, with a fair number l porl isits to such places as Diego Garcia, cruising n the Red Sea, nips to fapan, Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong and the Philip- pines - but i( didn ' t happen that wax. On 02 August 1990 Iraq invaded Kuwait and Operation Desert Shield was boi n. USS FLINT, as a member of battle Group Delta, was in the closest position to respond to this aggression and did so in a superb manner. The quickness displayed bv Battle Group Delta net- tint; on station is credited, in a large part, with causing Saddam Hussein with stopping at the border oi Kuwait ,ind not continuing his military incursion into Saudi Arabia. Ovei the 112 days that FLINT ope rat i ' d on station in the North Arabian Sea and dull oi Oman, the officers and crew would eon due t eighteen air he. id operations .it Masirah and Seeb; llv in excess of 670 hours; move over 3,700 passen- gers; and 3,000 tons of ammunition, cargo and mail. For their superior logistic performance FLINT was named by Commander Carrier Group One as battle (.roup Dalta ' s nominee lor tin- coveted COM- MANDER SEVENTH FLEET LOGISTIC EXCELLENCE AWARD lot 1990. In spite the Ion- hours and many challenges, it was a cruise where a lot of fun was had: ocean swimming, flight deck picnics, lip synch and talent contests, the dinner-dance and of course we must not forget the great basketball championship play-offs! The port visits did Finally come at the end oi tin- cruise and the days spent in Muscat. Penang, Hong Kong. Subic, (.nam and Hawaii were well deserved and enjoyed. The Indian Ocean cruises that bad been the norm oi the 19S0 ' s and looked to be chin- out. have again burst forth to the headlines of the news. The saga continues PART I OF II LEAVING HOME...

I hope that everyone that reads through its pages will come to know the large contribution of main ' people. I would like to personally thank my cruise book staff for donating their time and effort into making this production a success. This book is part of history - every time a crew member opens it, he or she will remember many days of work, hardships, UNREPS, mail calls, and memories of times past. We all shared in the FLINT family and it helped us to get through the bad times and the good times. As this book goes to the publishers, there may be some errors. I apologize if I have left anyone out-it was not my intent. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I have enjoyed putting it together. FAIR WINDS AND FOLLOWING SEAS, S c;?
