U.S.S. MOOSBRUGGER DD-980 USS MOOSBRUGGER THE ANTLER ■J ' J V SHIP ' S HISTORY USS MOOSBRUGGER was commissioned December 16, 1978, as the eighteenth in a series of 31 Spruance class destroyers. The ship is named for the late Vice Admiral Frederick Moosbrugger, a World War II Navy destroyer commander who served in the Pacific campaign and rose to flag rank following the war. Designed and built by Ingalls Shipbuilding Division of Litton Industries, in Pascagoula, Mississippi. MOOSBRUGGER is a member of the first major class of surface ships in the U.S. Navy to be powered by gas turbine engines. Four General Electric LM-2.500 engines, marine versions of those used on DC-10 and C-5A aircraft, drive the ship at speeds in excess of 30 knots. Twin controllable-reversible pitch propellers provide MOOSBRUGGER with a degree of maneuver- ability unique among warships of her size. A highly versatile multi-mission destroyer, MOOSBRUGGER is capable of operating indepen- dently or in company with amphibious or aircraft carrier task forces. Her overall length is 564 feet and she displaces 8200 tons. MOOSBRUGGER ' s primary mission is to operate offensively in an anti-submarine warfare role. MOOSBRUGGER ' s sonar is the most advanced underwater detection and fire control system yet developed. Integration of the ship ' s digital gunfire control system into the Navy Tactical Data System provides quick reaction in the performance of the ship ' s other mission areas of surface w-arfare actions and anti-aircraft warfare. The ship ' s weapons include two MK 45 lightweight 5 inch guns, two triple barrel MK 32 torpedo tubes, an anti-submarine rocket (ASROC) launcher, two quad Harpoon anti-ship missile launchers, one eight-cell Seasparrow anti-air missile launcher, and facilities for embarkation of two anti-submarine helicopters. Space, weight and electrical power reservations have been allocated in the design to provide for the addition of future weapons systems and will enable MOOSBRUGGER to keep abreast of future tech- nology. MOOSBRUGGER is currently the most advanced anti-submarine warfare (ASW) ship in the world. Her primary sensor is the AN SQR-19 Tactical Towed Array Sonar, or TACTAS. The TACTAS installed in MOOSBRUGGER presently is the only one of its kind. Based on extensive testing in MOOSBRUGGER, the SQR-19 has been accepted for service use and will be installed on a number of classes of U.S. warships. Although built for maximum combat effectiveness, crew comfort and habitability also are an integral part of MOOSBRUGGER ' s design. Berthing compartments are spacious and the ship is equipped with amenities not usually found aboard destroyers, including a crew ' s library, lounge, and gymnasium. Automated weapons and engineering systems permit operation of the ship, the size of a World War II light cruiser, by a relatively small crew of 21 officers, 20 chief petty officers, and 280 enlisted personnel. MOOSBRUGGER is a veteran of Operation " Urgent Fury " (Grenada) and has seen action as a unit of the Multi-National Peace-Keeping Force in Lebanon during her recently completed deployment. For these actions, " MOOSE " was awarded the Armed Forces Expeditionary and Navy Expeditionary Medals, respectively, as well as the Navy L ' nit Commendation. MOOSBRUGGER is homeported in Charleston, SC, and is assigned to Cruiser Destroyer Group Two as a unit of Destroyer Squadron Six. She proudly wears the DESRON SIX Battle Efficiency Award, having swept all nine mission area awards during the 1983 competitive cycle. The official crest of USS MOOSBRUGGER (DD-980) symbolizes the dedication and courage displayed by her namesake. Admiral Moosbrugger during World War II. The Trident, an attribute of Neptune, God of the seas, represents the awesome strength and dominance of the modern destroyer. It also resembles the letter " M " , an allusion to the initial letter of MOOSBRUGGER, the ship ' s namesake. Through the heraldic fountain for water, the grappling iron, (a device used for close range early naval encounters) and the torpedo, the crest commemorates the Vella Gulf incident in the South Pacific during World War II. The then Commander MOOSBRUG- GER led his ships into exceedingly close range against Japanese Naval Forces, took the enemy by surprise and delivered a devastating torpedo attack, thereby annihilating the hostile force. For this action, he was awarded the Navy Cross. The gold laurel wreath is symbolic of V ' ice Admiral Frederick Moosbrugger ' s long and distinguished career.

Steffen, Supply Officer LT James P. Robinson, Weapons Officer LT Gary Stussie, Operations Officer LTJG Tom Litowinsky, Navigation Officer EMCS(SW) Robert A Cox, SCPOC DECORATIONS Often, despite excellent organization and superior efforts, outstanding achievement is slow to be recognized and awarded. On the MOOSE, where " More Than Required " is our daily guideline, such accomplishments can be lost in the day to day operation of the Navy ' s finest destroyer. Fortunately, such efforts are highly visible and readily observed by the upper echelons of the chain of command, as sighted in the citation below: " For excellence during the competitive period from 1 April 1982 to 30 September 1983. the Desron Six Battle Efficiency Award is presented to the ship that maintained the highest degree of combat readiness among ships of Destroyer Squadron Six. thereby contributing significantlv to an improved readiness posture within the Squadron.

Through the determined efforts of her officers and crew, the MOOSE will remain ever vigilant and ready to serve. ENGINEERING (Sr V O " The Engineering Department of the MOOSE is the " Heart " of the ship, in fact it is sometimes referred to as " ' Mooseheart " . MOOSE Engineers supply the main propulsion which gets us to Europe and other parts of the world, the electrical power to run the systems of the ship and to Hght our way around it, the hydraulic and other various systems of support for both vital and habitability items, machine tool many of the parts needed, work on the hull structural parts, and monitor, control, and prevent damage aboard. The Engineering Department is divided into four divisions: M. or Main Propulsion Division; E. or Electrical Division; A, or Auxiliaries Division; and R. or Repair and Damage Control Division. M Division is in charge of the main engines, electrical generators, associated fuel systems, reduction gears, and power shafting. It is the largest division in the department, whose Division Officer is the MPA (Main Propulsion Assistant). E Division is in charge of electrical power and systems from the switchboards to distribution systems and motors. They are also responsible for interior communications, from the transmitters to the indicators, telephones, sound powered phones, MC systems, and g To systems. The ELO (Electrical Officer! is their Division Officer. A DiWsion is in charge of almost every other piece of mechanical or hydraulic support equipment on the ship, the ship ' s small boat diesel engines, pumps, and sewage systems. This is also the division responsible for the ship ' s evaporators which give the MOOSE her fresh water at sea. The Division is sometimes known as " A Gang " , and the Auxiliaries Officer is their Division Officer. R Division is in charge of Damage Control and Repair. They are also responsible for machinery repair involving the machining and manufacture of parts. Every piece of Damage Control gear on board is the responsibility of their Division Officer, as well as hull structure. The Division Officer is called the DCA (Damage Control Assistant). The Department Head over this is often referred to as the Chief Engineer, although his formal title is the Engineering Officer. He is in charge of the entire department, and responsible for all of the divisions ' work. The Division Officers assist him and he is also responsible for many of the ship ' s programs, including the safety program, electrical safety program, and hearing conser ation program. f jgaaijg " M DIVISION LTJG D.

The Quartermasters navigated us in and out of some tough places {most notably the Cooper Riven and kept us on station for Search and Rescue and Gunfire Support. The Yeomen and Personnelmen had a hard time getting people to and from a ship with no schedule and in looking out for MOOSEMEN ' s many interests, but succeeded time and agam. The Hospital Corpsmen saw to every ailment, from toothaches to Grenada invasion casualties. The Master- At-Arms Force had customs and overhappy liberty parties to contend with, and the Postal clerk made many a rendezvous at unheard-of locations to keep us in mail. Am 20 OPERATIONS Operations Department is the heart of Command. Control, and Comnaunications aboard the MOOSE. The four divisions consist of five officers and sixty five Operation Specialists, Radiomen. Signalmen. Electronics Technicians, Data Systems Technicians, and Electronics Warfare Technicians. 01 Division mans the Combat Information Center to coordinate MOOSBRUGGER operations with other Battle Group units. OE Division is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the ship ' s vast array of communications and command decision system electronics equipment, as well as maintenance of the ship ' s surface and air search radars. OC Division keeps the MOOSE in touch with the outside world by use of the ship ' s sophisticated communications suite. 0 V Division utilizes Electronic support equipment to monitor electronic emissions to protect the ship from hostile weapons.

The success of the Supply Department in performing it ' s mission directly affects the operational readiness of the ship and the morale of the crew. The department consists of four divisions which include; General Stores, Food Service, Ship ' s Store Ship ' s Services, and Disbursing. Our motto? " Ready for Sea " . Storekeepers man S-1 Division providing material support through procurement, receipt, stowage, and issue of repair parts and some multi-purpose consumables. They also provide technical information pertaining to part identification, source of supply, and applicability to work centers requesting assistance. Storekeepers also manage ail financial transactions which affect the ship ' s operating budget. With 35,000 line items to manage, and an annual operating budget of close to two million dollars, they stay pretty busy. S-2 Division consists of Mess -Management Specialists and Food Service Attendants. They run the galley and the Enlisted Dining Facility serving three, sometimes four meals per day. 365 days a year. Mess -Management Specialists requisition, stock, prepare, and serve over 300,000 dollars worth of food per year; and come meal time they tr - to make sure that ever ' crew member is served a tasty, nutritious meal in a clean and pleasant atmosphere. S-2 Division has a significant role in maintaining high crew morale, so if you hear some complaints, watch the guy, he ' ll probably complain all the way back to the serving line for " Seconds " . Ship ' s Serviceman are assigned to S-3 Division and are responsible for purchasing, stowing, and selling over 140.000 dollars worth of necessity and luxur ' items through the ship ' s store per vear. Profits from these sales are returned to the MOOSE ir.rry gk the Welfare and Recreation organization. They are also resp. .-isible for the operation of the ship ' s lau ndrv " and the ship ' s barbersh .p Both of these services, as well as the ship ' s store, are top notch operations, always striving to make each crew member ' s day onboard a little more pleasant. Last but not least there is S-4 Division. The Disbursing Ci ' :5: take care of shipmates by maintaining pay records and settling tra -I claims, take care of loved ones by processing allotments, and " Pa. the moose ' s way " overseas by providing pavTnent to vendors for goods or services received while inport. It wouldn ' t be prudent to mention how much money changes hands, but suffice it to say that on the loth and 30th there ' s always " enough " . The Disbursing Clerks are famous for their courteous service and flexible office hours. M X 33 WEAPONS e Handling a m Tiad of diverse duties and responsibilities, Weapons Department is involved in nearly every aspect of shipboard routine. Encompassing First, Second, Fox, and " G " divisions, the department is responsible for much more than merely the maintenance of our gun and missile systems. Operating the most advanced sonar system in the U.S. Nav - and very possibly the world, the Moose is always ready to perform her primary mission of Anti-submarine Warfare. Time and again. DD-9S0 has proven her superior ability to locate and isolate any threat hidden beneath friendly waters. In addition, with the destructive force of Anti-submarine Rockets lASROC) and MK 46 Torpedoes, the ship can not only protect herself and her allies but can remove the enemy threat ensuring safe and free passage across the seas for everyone. Second Division ensures that the sonar suite, anti-submarine weaponry and the associated fire control svstems are kept operating at the level that made the MOOSBRUGGER number one in ASW. Though our primary mission is ASW, the MOOSE can not overlook the importance of all other aspects of Naval Warfare. The Spruance class destroyer is above all a multipurpose platform better equipped to handle any contingency than any other naval vessel. Flexibility is the key to surviving in a hostile situation in which the threat may come from the surface or the air as well as beneath the sea. To counter these threats, the MOOSE is fitted with the Harpoon Weapon System, the Nato Seasparrow Missile System, the Mark 86 Gunfire Control System, and two 5 inch 54 caliber lightweight gun mounts. These weapons and their associated fire control systems ensure that the MOOSE can handle any threat, anytime. Fox division, responsible for the Harpoon. Seasparrow. and MK 86 systems, and " G " division, maintaining the guns and magazines, keep the ship operating as the foremost offensive and defensive capable platform yet designed. First division or " Deck " is the most diverse of all Weapons Department divisions, responsible for many shipboard evolutions, including small boat handling, underway replenishment, anchoring, line handling, towing, flight quarters and underway bridge watches. First Division often provides the first step to new recruits to a successful naval career. Despite which path a seaman eventually chooses, the experience and training he acquired while a member of First Division will always be invaluable to him. Though seldom applauded for their efforts and accomplishments. First Division has never let the MOOSE down and has kept her looking good and steering straight ahead, reflecting the pride of all who ride on her. Despite the numerous differences evident among the four divisions, the Weapons Department operates as a coordinated body to keep the MOOSBRUGGER ready to respond to the Nation ' s call for action. Still, this is not so surprising when one considers that every man in the department, regar dless of title or rate, is doing his part to maintain the tradition. The success of any ship rides entirely upon her officers and crew and the Weapons Department is proud to share in the continuing triumphs of MOOSBRUGGER, the finest destroyer in any fleet. ■ V 34 1 JF ' ...

Detachment 6 (HSL-34,DET 6) are the men who operate and maintain the SH-2F LAMPS MK I helicopter (Light Airborne Multipurpose System! which was assigned to the MOOSE during the recent Mediterranean deployment. The " MOOSE ' S Goose " as it is sometimes referred to, has a primary mission of .ASVV, and greatly improves the MOOSE ' s underwater detection range through it ' s ability to drop sonobuoys at great distances from the ship. It provides further ASW screening by performing Magnetic Anomaly Detection (M. ' D). the detection of variations in the earth ' s magnetic flux caused by the presence of submarines. This helo is also used for a variety of other missions including the classification of surface contacts, vertical replenishments, search and rescue, personnel transfers, and of course everyone ' s favorite, " Mail " . The men of HSL-34, Det 6 have a tremendous job keeping the helo airborne due to it ' s comprehensive maintenance schedule and arduous operating schedule, sometimes ' 24 hours a day. Despite these difficulties the " Air-Det " has done an outstanding job and has been a valuable asset to the MOOSE. 46 »,tmmmmmmtmmmm ' ' ' t»« ' » ' ii ' i ' ' ' S » ' i ' iii ffif STAFF ENS McLachlin DS3 King GMGl Thompson ET3 Cameron EWl Haves FTG2 Ward Advisor President Lay-Out Photographic Editor Assistant Photographic Editor Photography Staff Typist Divisional Representatives HT3 Colca R 0S2 Hawkins 01 BM2 Irizarry 1st SK3 Jones Supply IC2 Lassiter E STG3 Marple 2nd SMSN Ridley OC YN3 Weeks Navigation Photo Credits CAPT Dyer CDR Mello ENS McLaughlin ET3 Cameron HT3 Colca EWl Hayes DS3 King FTG2 Ward THE ANTLER STAFF 48 We. the cruisebook staff, never anticipated the tremendous amount of effort that would be required to produce a book of this caliber. We labored over this book a considerable number of hours while underway, and would like to thank the divisions concerned for making this time possible. Upon arrival in Charleston we spent many hours of our stand-down and liberty time to bring this book to it ' s completed form. Various obstacles were overcome, such as photo processing difficulties while overseas, and our own inexperience in building a cruisebook. The staff would like to thank ENS McLaughlin for his superb photos, and ENS Caldwell for his literary advice. The MOOSE ' S PAG, LTJG Gualandi, deserves a word of thanks for providing some helpful public affairs messages. The staff would also like to thank the crew for their cooperation and patience, especially when the individual photographs were taken. We would like to thank anyone else not mentioned in the photo credits, as we have such a long list that we can only name those who supplied major contributions. In close, we would like to thank the wives and families of the men serving on USS MOOSBRUGGER, as it took everyone ' s cooperation to make this book a success. Med Cruise Statistics When the MOOSE shifts colors she becomes a temporarily self-sufficient city. To support her. many daily supplies are needed, such as food, fuel, and various other sundry items. The ship has the facilities to provide MOOSE sailors with all their essential needs and even some luxuries, from soap to cameras. We have compiled a short list of statistics for a not-so-average deployment (86% of the cruise was at sea). The crew consumed over 220,000 dollars in food at an average of six hundred and eighty dollars per man. The following is a partial breakdown of some of the items consumed: Steak ,5187 LBS at 16 LBS per man Lobster 1085 LBS at 3.3 LBS per man Fruits and Vegetables 30,640 LBS at 95 LBS per man Eggs 62,640 eggs at 193 per man Coffee 2120 LBS at 209 cups per man While underway for lengthy periods of time the crew can ' t run out to the nearest department store, so the ship ' s store becomes the next best thing. Some of the more popular items the ship ' s store carried during this cruise are summarized in the following list: Total Per Man Total Sales Cigarettes 3480 ctn. 10 ctn. ,$13,920.00 Cassette tapes 1670 5 $ 9,262.00 Cassette players 52 i s of crew $ 6,552.00 Cameras 93 ' A of crew $13,950.00 Snickers 7608 23 $ 1,920.00 Toothpaste 1860 5 $ 1,860.00 Sodas 93,418 280 $23,354.50 Now, to mention a few of the more essential items; the crew used approximately 5800 rolls of toilet paper at 18 rolls per man, or 30 rolls per day. To help relieve the discomfort of a variety of ailments about 3,254 pills were dispensed by the Hospital Corpsmen. To provide a little discomfort to hostile forces, 110 five inch rounds (almost four tons of steel and high explosives) were fired under combat conditions, with a total of 280 rounds fired during the entire cruise. During our deployment the MOOSE logged over 62,000 nautical miles, consuming 4,733,782 gallons of marine diesel fuel, at approximately 76 gallons to the nautical mile. While deployed, our fuel and supplies were delivered during over 40 underway replenishments and 1250 flight deck evolutions, with the " Moose ' s Goose " and various other helicopters using 85,287 gallons of JP-5 jet fuel. It is a tremendous endeavor to support a ship of this size and the accomplishment of this task exhibits the flexibility and mobility of U.S. Naval Forces today. 49 Oslo Norway Oslo Marina Harbor Watch Fountain in Fogner Park Oslo Fjord Norwegian Folk Museum 51 Defending the Fort 52 Entering Oslo 53 Amsterdam, Netherlands Jl i 1 _-.- ' -Tj y 2 Windmills Bv the Sea Anne Frank ' s House 54 Canals At Night Palace of Mail Amsterdam is the Capital and principal city of the Netherlands.

Dyer, and her embarked LAMPS helicopter detachment lHSL-34 DET 6), Officer in Charge LCDR David K. Wright, departed Charleston, S.C, on the morning of October 20, 1983 for what was to be a routine deployment to the U.S. Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean. Having recently completed nearly eighteen months of technical and operational testing of the NasT ' s newest sonar suite, the men of MOOSBRUGGER (26 officers and 308 enlisted) departed Charleston anticipating the many days of " Submarine Hunting " that lay ahead. World events shaped this deplo Tiient as an thing but routine. On the morning of 25 October, MOOSBRUGGER was present off Pt. Salines, Grenada in operation " Urgent Fury " providing Naval Gunfire Support and Helicopter Combat Search and Rescue for the 22nd Airborne assault. MOOSBRUGGER recovered battle damaged U.S. Army helicopters and provided life-saving emergency medical treatment to the wounded. Helicopters staged from MOOS- BRUGGER ' s deck conducted over one hundred and thirty hours of combat search and rescue without incident, rescuing ele% ' en %vounded soldiers. In later operations in support of the Multinational Peacekeep- ing Force Lebanon, MOOSBRUGGER delivered over one hundred rounds of Naval Gunfire Support in support of the 22nd Marine Amphibious Unit in Beirut. USS MOOSBRUGGER also conducted several very successful Anti-submarine Warfare operations. During this deplo -ment MOOSBRUGGER conducted over thirty replenishments at sea and her embarked LAMPS aircraft accumulated over six hundred accident-free flight hours. MOOSBRUGGER flight deck crew conducted over twelve hundred and fifty safe flight deck evolutions for five different types of Army, Navy, and Marine helicopters. For her combat actions, USS MOOSBRUGGER (DD-980) was awarded the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal (Grenada), the Na .-y Expeditionary Medal (Lebanon), and the Navy Unit Commendation. While deployed the MOOSE was also named as this year ' s winner of the Destroyer Squadron Six Battle Efficiency Award (Battle " E " ), and HSL 34 Det Six was awarded the Captain Arnold Jay Isbell Air ASW Excellence Award. The MOOSE returned to Charleston May 2, 1984. having travelled in excess of sixty two thousand nautical miles, spending over eighty six percent of the deplov-ment at sea. While in the Mediterranean the MOOSE visited Gaeta and Trieste. Italy; Split, Yugoslavia, and spent the Christmas Holiday in the Holy Land at Haifa, Israel. 81 ISRAEL Dome Of The Rock Jerusalem, Israel 82 Vlli kaJ tt M A| Hj| m| M[ H ESH? -T A- ' B Bl 23 Wm SM Hl lijKr ' • J H 9 ■ L.

New Old and Above: One of the Swiss Guards in St. Peter ' s Basihca Right: Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier OPERATION: URGENT FURY Historically the destroyer has proven itself to be the stalwart of the surface navy. These well-armed, fast-moving, maneuverable ships classically find themselves the " point man " of the Battle Group. The sailors of these ships are proud to be destroyermen and pride themselves on their ability to meet any challenge. Operation Urgent Fury, which rescued American citizens and restored democracy to the island nation of Grenada, may not be recorded in history as a major conflict. But the record will substantiate once again the importance and flexibility that the Destroyer and her crew provide to the fleet during any conflict. The officers and men of Moosbrugger are proud of their accomplishments and participation in Operation Urgent Fury, and feel the role of the destroyer in the operation should not be overlooked. With five inch guns cleared for action, and her two embarked helicopters (HSL 34 DET 6 H2 - Greenchecker 232 and HS15 SH3 Red Lion 611) airborne for combat SAR Moosbrugger arrived in the predawn hours of 25 - October - 1983 as the " point man " of the surface force close ashore to cover the 82nd Airborne assault of Pt. Salines Airfield. Shortly after the assault began. Army Blackhawk helos, attempting to land at Prickly Point, came under heavy automatic weapons ground fire and turned out to Moosbrugger for assistance. Moosbrugger took the battle damaged helicopters aboard and established a livesaving emergency medical treatment center in the helo hangar, treating nine wounded soldiers of 82nd Airborne special forces. Once stabilizing medical treatment was accomplished, the wounded were successfully evacuated to surgical units aboard USS GUAM, while other soldiers were reinserted to the fight in available helicopters. An hour into the assault Moosbrugger received an urgent call for Medevac from a firefight area near the Pt. Salines Airfield above True Blue Beach. Rounding up two Army Blackhawks for cover, Moosbrugger vectored Red Lion 611 (HS-15) to the scene. Red Lion 611 set down on the beach and recovered eleven wounded soldiers who were successful- ly Medevaced to USS GUAM. During the eight days of Moosbrugger participation she conducted over 175 flight deck evolutions with a wide variety of helicopters from three services. SAR operations were only one of many missions assigned to Moosbrugger during Grenada. Moosbrugger maintained alert 30 or higher for Naval Gunfire Support throughout the operation. Twice Moosbrugger was called on to fire in anger delivering first " On Target " fire with spotter reports that both targets were destroyed. During the preparation for and execution of this operation, this Gas-Turbine powered destroyer operated over one hundred and forty hours at speeds above twenty five knots and on one occasion spent over thirty hours at thirty knots to deliver pony express style preassault planning information to the Marine amphibious commander. Moosbrugger conducted extensive small craft interdictions preventing the escape or resupply of the enemy by sea, provided ASW screening to the Battle Force and provided surface protection for special boat unit and Seal Team operations. This proud Destroyer, known fleetwide as the " Moose " , fulfilled all taskings. " The Moose Was Loose " in Grenada providing " More Than Required " in the tradition of her namesake.
