s THE MISSION OF THE USS JO UETT THIS WEST PAC WAS TO CRUISE THE NORTHERN END OF THE ARABIAN GULF AS PART OF OPERATION DESERT STORM ' S SOUTHERN WATCH. OUR OFFICIAL FUNCTION WAS THE AAW PICKET STATION FUR- THEST MOST NORTH IN OPERATING AREAS SUCH AS THE CORAL SEA AREA. OUR MISSION WAS TO WATCH FOR AIR CON- TACTS COMING BELOW THE 32ND PARALLEL FROM IRAQ IN VIOLATION OF THE NO FLY ZONE. WE WOULD BE THE FRONT LINE DEFENSE IN CASE SOMETHING GOT THROUGH THE AIR SUPPORT WE HAD IN THE AREA FROM THE RANGER BATTLE- GROUP WHICH WE CONTROLLED THE AIRCRAFT. FURTHER HAZZARDS IN THE AREA WAS THAT WE WERE OPERATING ON A KNOWN EDGE OF A CLEARED MINE FIELD. THE MINES WERE CLEARED DURING THE WAR BUT MINES THAT WERE SUNK WERE KNOWN TO BREAK LOSE FROM THE BOTTOM AND FLOAT ON THE SURFACE IN OUR AREA. TO COMBAT THIS THREAT THE SUPPLY DEPARTMENT MANNED A MINE WATCH ON THE FORECASTLE FROM SUNUP TO SUNDOWN. WE SAW A BUNCH OF TRASH FLOAT BY BUT WE NEVER SAW A MINE. ALL WEAPONS, MOUNT 51, THE 5 " 54 GUN, THE 25 MM CHAIN GUNS, AND THE 50 GAL MACHINE GUNS WERE ALSO MANNED AROUND THE CLOCK TO COUNTER THE POSSIBLE THREAT FROM HIGH SPEED, SPEED BOATS CALLED BOGHAMMERS KNOWN TO BE USED BY THE COUNTRY OF IRAQ. MODIFIED CONDITION ZEBRA WAS ALSO SET THROUGHOUT THIS TIME TO INCREASE OUR WATER TIGHT INTEGRITY IN CASE WE WENT INTO BATTLE. THE OTHER SHIP ' S IN OUR BATTLEGROUR THE PAUL E EOS- TER AND THE EANNING OPERATED TO THE SOUTH IN OTHER CAPACITIES.
