INmODUCTION BV: CeiPTFIIN G. €. MVSUW USN On 01 Dec 1990, USS MOfilL€ departed Long Beach, sailing on an eorli and uncertain deploi ment. The specter of conflict Luas a reality. Our five ship Rmphibious Readi Group (Rf G) joined forces with Commander Rmphibious Group Three and the nouu thirteen ships ivere the largest Rmphibious Task force to soil from the UJest Coast in over tuuenti -five years. Thanks to Captain Ron Berg, Mobile a as trained to a fine edge, fully mission and combat ready. Mobile maintained that readiness throughout the nine month deployment by always covering contingencies and always being prepared for the worst. " I solemnly swear . . . to obey the orders of the President of the United States . . . " , these words from the oath of enlistment and the commissioning oath rang as loud and clear as the General Quarters RIarm sounded the early morning hours of 19 Jan 1991, when Desert Shield became Desert Storm. Rendezvousing with the on scene Cast and UJest Coast Rmphibious Ready groups in the North Rrabian sea, our task force grew to over thirty ships, the largest RRG assembled since LUorld LUar II. Rfter our final rehearsal landing, the task force entered the Rrabian Gulf ready to carry out our combat missions. LUithin a matter of weeks, Dubai, Bahrain, Rbu Dhabi, " Gator Gulch, " Rl Jubayl, JebelRIi, Safaryia Oil Fields and Ras Rl Mishab marked our 191 days in the Gulf. Throughout Desert Shield and Desert Storm, MOtilLC, as one of the " Raiders of the Last RRG, ' ' met a variety of chal- lenges. Stepping into the arena, putting ourselves on the line in the Gulf, whatever the task: combat support cargo off- load, boat operations, hotel services or ambassadors, MOtilL€ Sailors and Marines did it with professionalism, dedication, ability and class. The presentation of Mobile ' s second consecutive Battle efficiency Rward put the exclamation point on a truly superb performance. Rs we headed for home, the sense of pride and feeling of accomplishment for a job well done was e vident yet a ver- shodowed by our thoughts turning toward home. Our families and friends who faithfully supported us throughout this ardu- ous combat deployment. Those are the unsung heroes of Desert Shield and Desert Storm. Their care and concern were always with us and part of our daily routine. LUe salute you all as an important part of the team that makes MO(ilL€ the best of the best. Bravo Zulu . . . Heep Pressing On! G. €. MVSLIVV
