The lions, symbolic of courage and strength, face in different directions indicating that the brothers for whom this ship is named, served in both theaters of operation during World War II. The star alludes to their many awards, and denote excellence and achievement. The crossed swords, adapted from the Officer and Enlisted badges, allude to Naval Combat Operations. CREST: Blue and gold are the colors traditionally associated with the Navy. The upraised arm in green and gold is an adaptation from the Gallery family device. The collared and chained sea-wolf symbolizes the only capture of a U-boat from the German wolf packs during World War II. The crest also symbolizes the curbing and destruction of the enemy sub activities in the Pacific theatre. MOTTO: Maim Forti — " With a Strong Hand " What Kind of Ship Is GALLERY? USS GALLERY (FFG 26) is the twentieth of a new class of 51 Guided Missile Frigates. This is the Navy ' s newest and largest class of ships since World War II destroyers. GALLERY is the result of a careful plan to provide a portion of the in-depth protection required for military and merchant shipping, amphibious task forces, and underway logistics groups. By doing so, GALLERY helps meet our nation ' s far-ranging international com- mitments and keep the vital sea lanes of communica- tions open. In order to ensure a large homogeneous class of capa- ble, yet relatively inexpensive ships, many innovative concepts are incorporated into her design. Some of these concepts include modular construction techniques and the utilization of numerous laborsaving devices to reduce the number of personnel required to operate the ship. GALLERY also incorporates many improvements in shipboard habitability, including a lounge area and improved messing facilities. The propulsion system is a computer-controlled gas turbine power plant with engines similar to those found on the Air Force C5A strategic transport and the civilian DC10 jetliner. GALLERY ' S propulsion system can be brought " on-the-line " and made ready to operate in less than one-eighth the time required for a conventional steam or nuclear powered ship. The combat system is also a new and innovative design, integrating a computerized command and con- trol system with the ship ' s sensors and weapons. Digital computers provide rapid evaluation of potential threats detected by the radars, digital sonar, and other sensors. Should the need arise, surface-to-air or surface-to- surface missiles, a rapid fire gun, anti-submarine torpe- does, the embarked LAMPS (Light Airborne Multipurpose System helicopters, or CIWS (Close-In- Weapons-System) can be employed to counter any potential threat that may come from any air, surface, or subsurface platforms.

The transit from Mayport to the Mediterranean was made eventful by a major lube oil leak, numerous flight quarters, underway replenishments and other scheduled evolutions. Upon arrival in the Mediterranean operating area, GALLERY immediately transited the Suez Canal into the Red Sea to support Maritime Interdiction Forces (MIF) through mer- chant vessel boardings. A Coast Guard Detachment embarked onboard tor the duration of MIF operations, augmenting GALLERY ' S boarding team. The embarked helo detachment, HSL 32 Det 9, provided valuable spotting and air cover for the boarding team. GALLERY remained in the Red sea for 45 days and boarded over 60 vessels — three being diverted and reboarded for further investigation of containers. The only port afforded GALLERY in the Red Sea was a three day visit to Hurghada, Egypt. A flightdeck bar-b-que was held to recognize the completion of 25 percent of the deployment. GALLERY retransited the Suez Canal to join DALE, forming a Surface Action Group (SAG). GALLERY then held port visits in Izmir, Turkey; Rhodes, Greece; and Hiafa, Israel. Upon completion of SAG opera- tions, GALLERY was assigned to the 43rd activation of the Naval On-Call Forces Mediterranean (NAVOC- FORMFD) (see NAVOCFORMED spread on pages 66-67). While participating in NAVOCFORMED, a change of command ceremony was held onboard GALLERY in the port of Palermo, Sicily. An international chess tournament was held and won by the GALLERY with HMS YORK (CV-59), USS SHENANDOAH (AD-44K USS DEWERT (FFG-45), USS DEYO (DL -989) mid USS DALE (CG-19). F-99) taking second place. A second flightdeck bar-b-que was held to celebrate the half-way point in the deplov- nent. On 10 November, GALLERY sighted a surfaced Soviet Tango " class submarine and promptly reported it ' s sta- !us and maintained a vigilant watch until relieved. 3ALLERY ' s eleven hours of visual contact put her in sole possession of the MED 3-91 " Look ' em Award. " On 12 November, GALLERY transited the Suez Canal o once again support the Maritime Interdiction Force. GALLERY operated closely with DEWERT, USS VUBREY FITCH (FFG-34), FS COMMANDANTE DE MMODAN (F-787), and HMAS SYDNEY (F-03). The Naples Engineering Material Assessment Team (EM AT) irrived on 14 November and departed 16 November after issigning a satisfactory grade for the EMAT. A Commander ' s luncheon was hosted by the GALLERY and attended by COMDESRON 22 and the captains of each ship GALLERY was operating with. The USO band, " IMPACT " , entertained the crew on the flightdeck — a refreshing break in routine. Overall, the GALLERY boarding party completed over 80 boardings while in the Red Sea during the month of June and 12-30 November. Once again, GALLERY ' S helo detachment provided air cover for the boarding team as well as the teams from the AUBREY FITCH and DEWERT.

Wlwn commencing this simulation, remem- ber to lock yourself inside and board up all win- dows with all friends and family outside, com- municating only with letters that your neigh- bors will hold for two weeks before delivering: losing one out of every five. Have a friend or neighbor yell " MAIL CALL! " at your door and in four out of five of these say, " You didn ' t get anything! " when yon answer. 2. Surround yourself with 200 people you don ' t like. People who chainsmoke, fart loudly, snore like a Mack truck on an uphill grade, complain constantly, seldom shower 01 brush their teeth and use expletives in speech — much the way kids use sugar on cold cereal 3. Unplug all radios and televisions to complete- ly cut yourself off from the outside world Have a neighbor bring you TIML or NLWSWLEK from 2 to 3 months ago and a PLAYBOY maga- zine with the pictures cut out 4.

Remove all plants, pictures and decorations. Paint all furnishings and walls gray, while or the shade of green found on hospital O.R. smocks. 6. Since you have no doctor, slock up on band- aids, aspirin and Aclifed, which, have been proven to cure every known disease and ailment known to man. 7 Do not flush the toilet(s) for the first three days to simulate the smell of forty people using the same commode After thai, flush once daily and pour a quart of pine oil in each commode and toilet to overwhelm the odor. Shower water should be all hot or all cold. When you gel soaped up Isoap on face), have your neighbor shut off all water S. Wear only approved coveralls or proper uni- forms (no special or cutoff t-shirts). Even though nobody seems to care, twice a week clean and press one uniform in the dark on a broken ironing board (or towel on the floor) and wear it for four hours. On your way to change into your coveralls, catch and rip the sleeve of your shirt on a sharp object. Curse and yell, then, wad it up and throw il in your locker — forgot- ten until the next inspection or watch. 9. Cut your hair weekly, making il shorter each tune until you are bald or look like you tangled with a demented sheep shearer Have a friend or neighbor tell you to gel a haircut at least once every oilier week, whether you need one or not. 10. Work 18-hour cycles steeping only four hours at a lime to ensure your body doesn ' t know or care if it ' s day-time or night-time. 11. Listen to your " favorite " cassette six tunes a day for two weeks then play music that causes acute nausea until you are glad to get back to your " favorite " cassette 12. Set your alarm clock to go off at the " snooze " interval for the first hour of sleep to simulate alarms of walch-slauders and night crew going off at odd hour limes, waking you up.
