United States Ship fllewport
USS NEWPORT QLST-1 17 91 is the third ship to bear the name of this city and county
in Rhode Island.
The first NEWPORT QPG-121, a gunboat, was commissioned in 1897 and saw action
in the Spanish-American War. The second NEWPORT QPG-275, also a gunboat, saw
action in World War II and the Korean War.
USS NEWPORT is the first ship of the new class of LST's. Capable of a sustained
speed of 20 knots, she is designed to provide the fastest, most efficient means of
landing tanks, combat vehicles, and artillery onto a beach under assault conditions.
Commissioned in 1969, NEWPORT is one of the most maneuverable ships in the
Navy Qdespite the fact that this class of LST is only 37 feet short of being two football
fields in lengthy. A single man in the Pilot House has instant control of six diesel
engines and controllable pitch propellers located on each shaft. She is the first
combat-type ship in the Navy to be equipped with a "bow thruster," a variable pitch
propeller located in the hull at the bow of the ship. It provides the ship with the fine
lateral maneuvering capability for precise beaching and causeway operations. The
thruster can also serve in lieu of a tug for maneuvering in restricted waters.
Another innovation is NEWPORT's bow ramp system. Rapid and flexible loading
and offloading is accomplished with a huge 35 ton bow ramp, supported by the ship's
most distinctive visual feature, the two forward projecting derrick arms. This "over
the bow" concept was employed in order to retain the hull form necessary for
NEWPORT's 20 knot capability. A second ramp lowers to provide access to the tank
deck, a vehicle and cargo stowage area extending the length of the ship. Loading and
offloading can be accomplished also from the sea through the stern gate. The
amphibious assault, in which the LST plays a key role, is one of the many aspects of sea
power projection. By the use of amphibious vehicles carried in the tank deck and
landing craft, Marines can be landed on a hostile shore. Causeways, carried on the
side of the ship, can be positioned to enable tons of equipment and cargo to be
delivered ashore rapidly by being driven directly from the ship, over the causeway to
NEWPORT's crew consisted of 219 enlisted personnel and 18 officers and she is
capable of transporting up to 350 U.S. Marine Corps combat troops and 20 officers.
NEWPORT is entirely self-sufficient with her evaporators producing 24,000 gallons
of fresh water per day and her diesel generators generating enough power for a city of
5,000. Her fuel supply is sufficient to enable her to steam around the world without
refueling and she can carry enough food to subsist for over two months. NEW-
PORT's facilities also include a bakery, barber shop, ship store, post office, closed
circuit television system, weight room, and a library.
In addition to serving as an instrument for the projection of power ashore, NEW-
PORT is also equipped and always prepared to perform the humanitarian task of
evacuating large numbers of personnel from crisis or disaster areas should the need
arise. Thousands of people from all over the world have found refuge in U.S. Navy
Amphibious ships in recent years, a role which we are well equipped and able to fill.

JOHN R. GRAY
Lieutenant Commander john R. Gray is a native of
Manassas, Virginia. He enlisted in the United States
Navy in 1967 and was selected for the Navy Enlisted
Scientific Education Program CNESEPD in 1972. He
attended the University of Colorado, Boulder and grad-
uated with an Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mathematics
and a commission as an Ensign in 1976.
Lieutenant Commander Gray served as Electronics Ma-
terial Officer and First Lieutenant in USS TRUENT
CFF-1095j from March 1977 to January 1980. From
March 1980 to March 1982, he attended the Naval
Post-graduate School in Monterey, California gradu-
ating with a MS in Operations Research.
Ordered to the Surface Warfare Department Head
Course in May 1982, he graduated in December and
reported to USS VALDEZ QFF-10961, a Naval Reserve
Frigate, as Weapons officer. He served as Operations
Officer on USS FARRAGUT CDDG-375 from june
1984 to March 1986 and as Tactics and Doctrine Of-
ficer on the staff of Commander Naval Surface Force
US Atlantic Fleet from March 1986 to May 1988. In
August 1988, LCDR Gray assumed his present duty as
Executive Officer on USS NEWPORT.
Lieutenant Commander Gray's awards include the
Navy Commendation Medal 3rd Award, Navy Good
Conduct Medal 2nd Award, and Sea Service Deploy-
Lieutenant Commander Gray is married to the former
Roberta J. Graybar of St. Francis, Wisconsin. They
have three daughters and reside in Virginia Beach,
unique and very important one. The SEA helps the enlisted crew
members with his experience and knowledge through advising,
counseling, and being accessible for their problems or questions.
In addition, he provides a vital link between the Captain and the
Chief Petty Officer Woods' 17 years of active service has included
duty assignments at EM "A" School, USS SIMON LAKE QAS-339,
USS CANOPUS CAS-345, NAVCAMSDED, Naples, Italy, and
now the NEWPORT, to which he reported in March 1985.
EMCQSWJ Woods is originally from Harriman, Tennessee. He is
married to the former Amalia Aragon and they have three chil-

Consisting of three distinct divisions, Deck Department has
proven itself to be a most versatile department. On the
Main Deck, there are First and Second Divisions ready to
handle any evolution including Sea and Anchor Detail,
Flight Quarters, Boat Operations, LCU Stern Gate Mar-
riages, Underway Replenishments and Embarka-
tionfDebarkation of Marine Detachment.
The Boatswains mates from First and Second Divisions are
ready to turn to and meet their challenges head on. In
addition to their participation in the evolutions that make
the USS NEWPORT unique, First and Second were also
responsible for keeping the ship and the ship's boats looking
good. Members from First or Second Divisions could always
be found working to ensure that NEWPORT kept her best
foot forward. As we head topside we find the Gunnersmates
of Third Division. These professional members of the Com-
bat Systems Team are always ready to bring the fight to the
aggressor with their 3" X 50 rapid fire gun mounts. Main-
tained in the highest degree of material readiness, these
weapons proved time and again that NEWPORT was ready
to fight and win. From quickdraw exercises to famfires of
the fantail, the Gunners mates were ready to show why sure
shot NEWPORT was the king of the hill. Three divisions,
one team. Deck Department: diversity, unity, flexibility
through professionalism. From the bow ramp to the stern
gate, from the anchor to the gun mounts, Deck does it all.
On station every time.
That is why so goes the Deck Department . . . So goes the
ship . . .

During MARG 1-89, NEWPORT's Engineering Department was involved in a
' d of taskin s From the rebuilding of NR 2 SSDG to a highly successful
myria g .
Outchop OPPE, the engineers at NEWPORT prevailed through many long
sleepless nights. The engineers took the maximum advantage of every op-
portunity to train and to maintain the Propulsion Plant and numerous auxiliary
The engineer's demanding schedule started with the emergency repairs to NR 2
SSDG during Inchop. Then there was the DMTT visit for preparation for the
Outchop OPPE in june. The young men of engineering not only met the
challenge but exceeded all expectations. Shortly thereafter, the scheduled RAV
with the Israel shipyard provided downtime for some much needed maintenance.
OPPE preps continued with the ERAT Team. Again the engineers demonstrated
their potential in meeting all goals.
After working our way back across the Med, the engineers had a short stop for
our final maintenance availability with the USS VULCAN, in Marseille. This
provided the fine-tuning for the OPPE that laid ahead.
Then on the trip back across the big pond, 3 days ahead of schedule, and on 2
hours notice, the OPPE team arrived. Once again, Engineering Department
proved why we are the best LST in the fleet. We passed OPPE qualifying for a 2
year certification and scoring above average in 2 areas.

The Operations Department is responsible for
the collection, evaluation and dissemination of
all combat information required for the com-
pletion of assigned missions. This tasking en-
tails the close coordination of RM's, SM'5,
ET's, OS's, and FC,s to ensure that all radars,
radios, navigation and electronic equipment
are fully operational.
CDC Division is specifically tasked with handling
all of the ship's external communications. The
radiomen use various radio equipment for the
processing of incoming and outgoing message
traffic. The signalmen use flashing light, sem-
aphore and flag hoists for short range com-
munication while the ET's are ensuring that all
communication and navigation equipment is
operational and performing to maximum ef-
OI Division carries out the execution of all
assigned missions. Through close coordination,
the Operation Specialists make sure the NEW-
PORT is always at the right place at the right
time. CIC also coordinates all combat battle
problems through effective use of the ship's
guns and the close in weapons system which is
manned and maintained by the Fire Control

By providing maximum material and services support to our
customers, the officers, crew and embarked Marines of the USS
NEWPORT, Supply Department enables the ship to maintain the
highest possible state of operational readiness and morale. This
high level of support is Supply Department's mission and total
reason for being aboard USS NEWPORT. Led by the Supply
Officer, the storekeepers initiate and ensure the requisitioning,
delivery, receipt, and storage of all repair parts and general
consumable items required to operate the ship. The Supply
Department also directly supports the crew through a multitude
of services provided by the Sales Officer and ship's servicemen: a
barber shop and laundry to help keep the sailors looking like
sailors, a shipls store to provide everything from basic necessity
items to luxury items for gift giving, and soda and candy vending
machines for a quick snack. All the profits from these operations
go back to the crew by way of financial support for the welfare
and recreation program aboard.
Keeping the officers and crew well fed is the responsibility of the
Food Service Officer and his team of Mess Management Spe-
cialists. The MS's baked bread and doughnuts, prepared and
served up to 1,100 meals per day for a hungry group of sailors
and Marines. This tremendous task required a lot of groceries
and plenty of talent at all hours of the day and night. The
maintenance of pay records and paying of the crew is the re-
sponsibility of the Disbursing Officer and Disbursing Clerks.
Handling of regular and special pay, cashing of checks and
exchanging of foreign currency are some of the more visible
functions of the Disbursing Officer.
Every man in the Supply Department contributes towards sup-
porting the ship and crew with a wide variety of services and
specialized skills required to maintain USS NEWPORT and her
crew in the highest condition of material readiness and morale.

Administration and cllavigation 'Dept l
The Nav! Admin Department, as we are popularly
referred to, is a combination of personnel of dif-
ferent ratings who accomplish several important
jobs. The ratings include QM's, PN's, YN's, MAA's,
HM's, the PC and the NCC. In addtion to ensuring
the safe navigation of the ship, the Navf Admin De-
partment is responsible for other duties such as
health, mail, law enforcement, retention and the
operation of all the ship's office functions, which are
too numerous to list in this paragraph. The Nav-
igation and Administration Department plays an
equally important role in contributing to the suc-
cessful completion of USS NEWPORT's mission.

The Seabees, as they are more commonly
called, are responsible for the mainte-
nance and operation of 4 Causeway Sec-
tions and associated handling rigging, 7
pieces of Combat Engineer support equip-
ment, and two 50 foot work boats, known
as "Bubble Gum" boats.
Seabee personnel "splash" the causeways
and provide barge ferry services from the
amphibious ships to the beach. The
causeways, which are 90 feet long and
average about 80 tons apiece, can also
provide an anchored pier at the beach to
which LST's, LCU's and small craft may
"marry" up to.
As a result of their unique abilities, the
Seabees and their causeways are an in-
tegral part of the Mediterranean Amphib-
ious Ready Group QMARGQ.

Un ep Detail
On our travels throughout the Mediterranean Deployment, the NEWPORT had 9
different port visits ranging in length from 3 to 18 days. We visited the countries of
Spain, France, Israel, Turkey, and Italy. As a result, the sailors and marines of the
NEWPORT learned first hand about the different cultures in the lands they visited.
In a variety of ways, from an audience with the Pope to home hospitality programs,
from tours of famous places to repairing an orphanage, our crew members had
many memorable experiences.
Our sailors and marines were able to see sights that were only dreams before we
arrived. But more importantly, we were able to meet the people of these countries.
They were able to learn a little about us, and us about them, and in the process the
world became just a tiny bit smaller. As we left the Med for our journey back home,
we were all just a little bit different from before, as a result of our port visits.

A NAVY WIFE'S PRAYER
AT NIGHT WHEN I CRAWL INTO BED
MY LONELY PILLOW BENEATH MY HEAD
I CLOSE MY EYES AND SAY A PRAYER
"GOD KEEP HIM SAFE WAY OVER THERE
AND MAKE ME STRONG SO I WONT CRY
THINKING OF THE DAY WE SAID GOOD-BYE
ITS KINDA HARD TO FACE EACH DAY
WITH HIM SO VERY FAR AWAY A
I NEED THE STRENGTH OF HIS LOVING
TO GUIDE ME IN THIS TROUBLED LAND
AND GOD PLEASE WILL YOU LET HIM
HOW MUCH I MISS AND LOVE HIM SO."
AND THEN I FEEL ACROSS THE BED
TO WHERE YOU USE TO LAY YOUR HEAD
AND I CLOSE MY EYES SO VERY TIGHT
SO I WONT CRY AGAIN TONIGHT
AND THEN I WHISPER TO THE EVENING '
GOOD NIGHT SWEET HEART
WAY OVER THERE!
