The ship was christened on January 14, 1978 by sponsor Mrs. Rose S. Michaelis, wife of Admiral F. H. Michaelis, then Chief of Naval Material. USS FRANK CABLE (AS-40) was officially commissioned as a ship of the United States Navy on February 5, 1980. USS FRANK CABLE (AS-40) is the second of three ships in her class and is classi- fied as an auxiliary ship, providing mobile support to submarines and related sur- face ships. USS FRANK CABLE is specially designed to tend the nuclear-powered SSN 688 LOS ANGELES class attack submarines, and has proven her versatility by providing support to Submarine Squadron FOUR, which includes ten SSN 637 class nuclear attack submarines, one SS 580 class diesel submarine, two subma- rine rescue vessels and a torpedo recovery vessel. The ship contains 53 specialized shops for submarine support as well as various personal services like laundry, medical and dental facilities, legal counseling, mail, disbursing services, barbershops and ship ' s stores. There are living quarters for up to 1,351 officers and enlisted personnel, both male and female. USS FRANK CABLE (AS-40) recently won a second Battle " E " , Supply Blue " E " (fourth year), Engineering Red " E " (second year), Communications Green " C " (third year), Medical yellow " M " (third year) and six Edward F. Ney awards and has established a reputation for excellent performance in day-to-day operations, as well as in numerous complex inspections. As a result USS FRANK CABLE was awarded the Meritorious Unit Commendation. ■ aa bj -p| v I 4 |M USS FRANK CABLE ' S mission is to provide a mobile support base for nuclear-powered SSN 688 LOS ANGELES class and SSN 637 STURGEON class high-speed attack submarines. As an auxiliary ship FRANK CABLE can provide maintenance, supplies and other operational services to these submarines. As USS ORION (AS-18) was required to return to the United States for a needed refit, FRANK CABLE ' S mission was to report to the Santo Stefano site to provide required submarine support to Submarine Squadron 22 submarines during ORION ' S absence. Mr. Frank Cable The ship ' s seal Shortly after USS FRANK CABLE (AS-40) was commissioned, the crew submitted drawings of logos for selection as the ship ' s seal. " Parata Vollensque " , which means ready and able, was one of the five finalist drawings, and by direction of the commanding officer, was chosen as FRANK CABLE ' S Ship ' s Seal. The picture in the heart of the symbol represents today ' s nuclear Navy with USS FRANK CABLE as the overall team supporter with a surface and submarine-qualified crew to tend submarines. The ship ' s captain CAPTAIN JOHN D. PORTER Dear CABLE Team: This book documents the success of CABLE ' S deployment to the Mediterranean. It chronicles the joy, the heartache and the effort to conduct 13 upkeeps over a six-month period while far from home. Each of you made a significant contribution to establishing the CABLE TEAM ' S 4.0 reputation in the Sixth Fleet. You also estab- lished the standard for serving as United States Navy ambassa- dors overseas through your superior conduct and significant efforts to improve the quality of life in the islands of La Maddale- na. Captain Porter entered the Navy through the Naval Reserve Officer Training Pro- gram and was commissioned an Ensign upon graduation from Stanford Univer- sity in 1963. Following nuclear power and submarine training, Captain Porter served on USS THOMAS A. EDISON (SSBN 610) from August 1 965 through July 1 968. He next served as Engineer Officer in USS CASI- MIR PULASKI (SSBN 633) from July 1 968 through January 1972. From February 1 972 until May 1 974 he was assigned to the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Examining Board, United States Atlantic Fleet. From June 1974 through June 1977 he served as Executive Officer in USS SKATE (SSN 578). Following Prospective Command- ing Officer training in March 1978, he took command of the USS KAMEHA- MEHA (SSBN 642) Blue Crew where he served until April 1980. In April 1980 he took command of the USS TREPANG (SSN 674) where he served until June 1 983. Upon completion of command, he served as COMSUBLANT Representa- tive, Portsmouth Naval Shipyard from June 1 983 until March 1 986. He reported to the United States Naval War College in March 1 986 as a student in the College of Naval Warfare and graduated in March 1987. Upon graduation Captain Porter received the President ' s Award as the College of Naval Warfare Honor Graduate. Captain Porter is entitled to wear the Meritorious Service Medal with two stars, the Navy Achievement Medal, and the National Defense Ribbon. He holds a Master of Science Degree in Adminis- tration from George Washington Univer- sity and a Master of Arts Degree in Inter- national Relations from Salve Regina Col- lege. Captain Porter is married to the former Mary Katherine Kroeger of Menlo Park, California. They have two children, Philip and Sarah, and reside in Charleston, South Carolina while Captain Porter is as- signed as Commanding Officer of USS FRANK CABLE (AS 40) from April 25, 1987 to April 1989. You can be justifiably proud of your accomplishments. BRAVO ZULU! Executive Officer COMMANDER JAMES F. JOHANEK The success of a command, in its ability to carry out its mission relies heavily on the performance of assigned personnel. FRANK CABLE ' S six-month deployment to the Mediterranean was a great suc- cess. I attribute this to the outstanding, profession- al performance of the crew. The men and women of FRANK CABLE can be justifiably proud of their individual accomplishments. Each person ' s posi- tive action contributed to the " CABLE Team " effort and thus reflected positively on the reputation of the ship. The core values of the Navy, integrity, professionalism and tradition, are practiced on a daily basis on FRANK CABLE and fully support our contention of being the Navy ' s only 4.0 tender. 8 Command Master Chief After 26 years in the Navy and over nine duty stations, I can commend FRANK CABLE sailors on their excep- tional Navy professionalism, not only for a cruise, but in meeting all the military ' s missions and traditions as a whole. It takes a great sense of pride and effort for a sailor to service his country by striving to master his technical abilities to form a team of professionals who can preserve freedom. Navies have sailed the world ' s oceans throughout history, but none meet the stupen- dous reputation and pride of today ' s U.S. Navy and sailors, represented exceptionally by USS FRANK CA- BLE, you should be proud to be sailing the world on CABLE as a part of today ' s Navy. Master Chief James M. Samuels Bm ' ir - Command Chaplain A treasure chest of golden memories surrounding work and travel, while moored in unique Mediterra- nean locations — that is how I would describe the FRANK CABLE cruise. When it came to routine and not- so-routine challenges the crew responded with, " It ' s no big thing, " and gave their all. The beach clean-up program, Tege Orphanage renovations, Gospel Choir concerts, chapel and sports participation illustrate that your " can do " spirit knows no bounds. Your examples of international friendship and good will surfaced dur- ing our cruise to Italy. The positive impression you left on the Italians will last a long time! The time we spent together on the cruise reaffirms my opinion that you are top performing sailors in every field, in all catego- ries. Dio ti benedica (God bless you) now and always. Lieutenant Judy A. Lamb CABLES. USS FRANK CA port in the contin River, in the heart ,outbCarolirTa ' s 10 The city of Charleston itself is on a coastal peninsula formed by the Cooper and Ashley rivers. Charleston depicts America ' s 1 8th century lifestyle and history as its southern traditions are vibrant with romantic mansions, cobblestone streets and open-air markets. Marble stairwells, rod-iron sates and southern-bell balconies of the colonial age still line the streets of Charles- ton ' s picturesque plantation country. Home of landscape gardens and one of the first conti- nental consressmen, Charleston has seen the Revolutionary and Civil wars of America and continues to bear our country ' s original beauty, heritage and ideals. homepor: Jim T " V ri m » if HHH i;| ' Jv il il PI CABLE departs Charleston ' i " m-rr-n Crossing the water Crew has bash on helo deck During the 1 5 days CABLE steamed en route to her Italian destina- tion, crew members spent numerous hours standing look-out and engineering watches, conducting group professional and dam- age control training sessions, attending Intercultural Relations classes to prepare them for Italian lifestyles and completing pro- fessional qualification skills. The relief to this rigorous underway schedule came when the crew had an all-day picnic and talent show one Sunday while out on the Atlantic Ocean. Barbecued chicken, hamburgers and hot dogs with all the trimmings were served by the Food Services Division as the crew was entertained by over 20 talented sailors who competed in the talent show. 14 Damage Control Olympics Damage Control Olympics was an exciting, educational event for CABLE sailors while they crossed the Atlantic. It was an exciting race against the clock and other teams to win the Olympics. It was an educational event that simulated actual damage control casualties and tested the expedient capabilities of the crew to combat them.

Captain Charles L Moore Commander Submarine Squadron Twenty-Two The officers, men and women of USS FRANK CABLE are to be commended for their superior performance as a Mediterranean submarine tender. Every aspect of submarine support and repair has been executed in a totally professional manner. Your willing- ness to pitch-in and help our host nation through the beach- clean-up program and local fire fighting has raised the local Ital- ian esteem for American presence to new heights. FRANK CABLE is truly a " good friend " and represents our nation as an ambassa- dor of god will. Well done to all hands! 21 Squa n 22 y B B _ ' • t. ' lt i — USS FRANK CABLE (AS-40) is the submarine tender and flagship for Submarine Squadron FOUR, homported in Charleston, South Carolina. However, as USS ORION (AS-18) was scheduled for a needed refit in 1 988, FRANK CABLE temporarily detached from Squadron FOUR to provide submarine repair support required by Submarine Squadron TWENTY-TWO in Italy, durins ORION ' S absence from May to November 1988. USS SEAHORSE USS L. MENDEL RIVERS raojuj USS PETREL USS NARWHAL USS RAY Two navies share island FRANK CABLE sailors were privileged to become acquainted with Italian navy personnel who shared the NATO site on Santo Stefano Island with them. The Italian sailors lived in a barracks on the island and provided security to the site. They also shared their traditions and cultures with CABLE sailors, leaving both na- tionalities with a better understanding and appreciation for each other ' s countries and navies. Liberty boats for Med moor pberty boats (Lem ' s) were filled each night at liberty call with sailors headed for a night onlaMaddalena or in Palau, Sardegna. jAs the small Santo Stefano Island sits between these two points, la " liberty boat " ran from the site to both Italian towns allowing CABLE sailors a chance to shop, sightsee and relax away from Ithe ship.

The 1 3-square-mile island of La Maddalena, named after the virj gin mother Mary Magdalene, was where most CABLE sailor spent their liberty time shopping and dining. La Maddalena ha been of great military importance throughout history becaus of its location in the Straits of Bonifacio, and over 50 fortressel from the 17th century still remain there. The permanent populaj tion of the island numbers about 14,000 but in the peek touris season the population increases to as many as 35,000 people Several U.S. Navy facilities are available on the island for Amer can sailor s deployed there. liPi, s I ' Ulllllil i=l SJ M . «9 5feA ff •I ' S S ' " -■ Struts 1 r H ' r " P JS BmSI § ' Palau The city of Palau is on Sardegna, a neighbor island to Santo Ste- fano.

Over 64 crew members joined with 86 local Italian school students, civilians, Italian navy members and Carabinieri personnel as part of the " Comorano Due " project (trans- lated from Italian to mean a second operation of the co- morano, or seagull). Together, the two nationalities un- dertook this ecology project by cleaning 1 5 different beaches during the last week of June. ocal beaches tSjjf C? 17 ■3Sw-; iUt ' s ■ ' ■«, ' ,-.- While deployed to Italy, FRANK CABLE sailors volunteered to complete a very special project for the local Italian community of LaMaddalena Island.

A Project ol the heart Friendship Da ! With hoistinss of the Italian and American flass, giving a drum roll and releasing 50 balloons, the gates of the Naval Support Com- pound in La Maddalena, Italy were thrown open on September 1 7, 1 988 for the 1 3th annual celebration of Italian-American Friendship Day. Here the two nationalities joined to share cultures in dance, food, song and ideals. Different booths were displayed to explain Amer- ican crime prevention, afro-American heritage, the U.S. Navy ' s mis- sion and even Mickey Mouse to the local Italian guests and dignitar- ies. The Navy ' s Sixth Fleet Band, FRANK CABLE band and American Chapel Gospel Choir were a few of the performing American enter- tainers.

Crew members gathered there for celebrations and special events each night of the week, as they did for this Soul Night party at the EM Club. 67 In Europe for Oktoberfest r— fMH Over 30 FRANK CABLE sailors ventured into Ger- many, while the ship was deployed to Italy, for the annual, authentic Oktoberfest! The special tour took service members to premiere tourist attractions in Germany and to the Oktoberfest festivities for about a week. Holloween on the Rock On Holloween at " the Rock " , FRANK CABLE sailors continued the tradition of dressing in costumes and went to the Enlisted Members ' Club on Santo Stefano island for a party and judging of best costumes. FRANK CABLE Special Services Representative Mike Dum, dressed as Santa Claus, gave Ship ' s Store gift certifi- cates to the costume winners while CABLE ' S disc jockey Keith Behm played hauntingly superb party tunes. Mail Call The hishlight o f each day, while CABLE was de- ployed, was when they said " mail call " over the ship ' s announcement system. Mail Call prompt- ed Mail Petty Officers to run and get in a long line to receive their department ' s mail. When the mail was distributed to the divisions, a small crowd hovered the Mail Petty Officers while shouting " Did I get anything?

VERTREP of supplies Although USS FRANK CABLE was 4,1 30 miles from Charleston, South Carolina, crew members could still enjoy many American products. Supplies came to CABLE by supply ships from as far away as the Naval Supply centers in Charleston and Norfolk. Once a month a Vertical Replenishment (VERTREP) was conducted to bring the supplies to the ship. These were full-day evolutions of helicop- ters lifting pallets from a supply ship and bringing them to the Santo Stefano site. Gospel choir sings to community While CABLE was stationed in LaMaddalena, Mess Manage- ment Specialist David Jamison recruited a group of FRANK CABLE personnel to sing in LaMaddalena ' s American Cha- pel choir. While the group gave regular concerts at the American Chapel and Sisters of Tege Italian children ' s or- phanage, they were also invited to share their musical ta- lents at the local Italian Catholic Church and Italian-Ameri- can Day festival. The FRANK CABLE personnel who were in the choir are: SOPRANO; Kathy Clyburn, Valencia Court- ney, Rosalind Robinson, ALTO; Rachelle Boyd, Carol Rav- enel, TENOR; Lynette Garrett, Kenneth Graham, David Jam- ison, Eugene O ' Neal, Reginald Reid, Robert Whetstone.

Wolfert 89 Port-of-call in Spain " • On CABLE ' S return to the United States from Italy, crew members experienced yet another cultural awakening during the port-of-call to Malaga, Spain from November 4 through 7, 1988. For many FRANK CABLE sailors it was their first exposure to the true Spanish lifestyle. In Spain the crew en- joyed traditional bullfights, Spanish cuisine, night- life and customs. FRANK CABLE ' S stop in Spain provided a perfect end to a highly successful de- ployment. LB! misffM ■ ' I J " ?

Its primary mis- sion is to maintain the appear- ance and preservation of the ship ' s weather decks and out- side hull. In addition, First Divi- sion is responsible for issuing ship ' s pneumatic tools. First Di- vision also provides spray- painting services to other de- partments for the maintainance of the ship ' s interior spaces.

Its primary mission is to preserve, maintain and operate FRANK CABLE ' S two 5-ton trav- elins cranes and 30-ton boat- and-repair crane. Through the Repair Work Center (72A), Sec- ond Division also manufactures rigging and weight-handling equipment. The ship ' s cranes are the backbone of all FRANK CABLE departments because without the ability to move sup- plies, weapons and submarine repair parts, FRANK CABLE could not fulfill her mission to the Navy. Kennith Graham 102 Michael Smithey Third Division : j==£ The Third Division of Deck De- partment is primarily responsi- ble for the preservation, mainte- nance and operation of the ship ' s eisht small boats. These boats include two 50-foot and two 40-foot utility boats, two 33-foot personnel transfer boats and two 26-foot motor whaleboats. These craft and their professional crews pro- vide many services that are vital to the submarine repair busi- ness, like movins weapons, transporting supplies and repair parts, providing liberty boats, submarine chase, life saving, se- curity patrol and overboard re- covery services. The combined services of Third Division are vitally important and enable FRANK CABLE to continue her mission as a submarine repair ship.

And most of us have read a book or heard the lusty tale About the men who sail these ships through lightning, wind and hail. But there is a place within each ship that legend fails to teach, Authors never write about and preachers never preach. It ' s down below the waterline, it takes its living toll, A hot, metal burning hell that sailors call " The Hole. " It houses engines run by steam that make the shafts go ' round - A place of fire and noise and heat that beats your spirit down. Where boilers like a hellish heart with blood of angry steam Are molded gods without remorse, nightmares in a dream Whose threat that from the fires roars is like a living doubt That any moment would, with scorn, escape and crush you out. Where turbines scream like tortured souls alone and lost in hell, As ordered from above somewhere, they answer every bell. The men who keep the fires lit and make the engines run Are strangers to the world of night, and rarely see the sun. They have no time for man nor god, no tolerance for fear,- Their aspect pays no living thing the tribute of a tear. For there ' s not much that men can do that these men haven ' t done Beneath the decks, deep in " The Hole, " to make the engines run. And every hour of every day they keep their watch in hell For if the fires should ever fail, their ship ' s a useless shell. When ships converge to have a war upon an angry sea, The men below just grimly smile at what their fate might be. They ' re locked below like men foredoomed who hear no battle cry: It ' s well assumed that if they ' re hit, the men below will die. For every day ' s a war down there when the gauges all read red; Twelve hundred pounds of raging steam can kill you mighty dead. So if you ever write their sons, or try to tell their tale, The very words would make you hear a fired boiler ' s wail. And people, as a general rule, don ' t hear of men of steel, So little is heard about " The Hole " or how the men there feel. But I can sing about this place and try to make you see The hardened life of men down there, ' cause one of them is me. I ' ve seen these sweat-soaked heroes fight in superheated air To keep their ship alive and right, though no one knows they ' re there. And thus they ' ll fight for ages on till warships sail no more Amid the boiler ' s mighty heat and the turbine ' s hellish roar. So when you see a ship pull out to meet a warlike foe, Remember faintly, if you can, the men who sail below. o A Engineering Agniflft |||1U||| Lt. Cmdr.
