USS N CH OLSON IDD-9822
One of the world ,s largest and most modern destroyers, USS NICHOLSON was designed and built with the ability to strilce at
foes und d h ' ' ' ' ' ' ' -
er, over, an on t e surface of the ocean. The ship s primary mission is Anti-Submarine Warfare
Honoring the memory of Hive family mem bers who distinguished themselves in Na val careers during the Revolutionary War, the
War of 1812, and the Civil War, NICHOLSON was constructed by Ingalls Shipbuilding Division, Litton Industries at
Pascagoula, Mississippi and commissioned on May 13, 1979. NICHOLSON is the Twentieth of 31 SPR UANCE IDD-9632
class destroyers and the fourth ship to bear the name of NICHOLSON.
This is the Hrst major class of surfa ce ship in the U.S. Navy to be powered by Gas Turbine engines. Four marinized versions of
the same engine used in the DC-10 and C5A aircraft coupled with twin controllable reversible pitch propellers give NICHOL-
SON a degree of maneuverability unique among large warships. This permits sustained speeds in excess of 30 knots.
Fitted with a fully integrated weapons and sensor systems, NICHOLSON can operate independently or in company with
amphibious or carrier task forces, carrying out a wide variety of missions. For Anti-Submarine Warfare, NICHOLSON is
equipped with the sophisticated AN XSQS-53 Long Range Sonar.
This submarine detection system is integrated with a digital computer complex called the "Na vy Tactical Data System". This
sophisticated system generates Hring solutions for the Ships Anti-Su bmarine Rockets "ASR OC" and two triple-barrelled MK
32 Torpedo Tubes. NICHOLSON is also Htted with a landing platform and hangar facilities to support the Light Airborne
M ulti-Purpose System Helicopter I LA MPS Q. With this versatile suite of short and long range weapons, NI CH OLSON is more
than capable to react rapidly and effectively to any undersea threats.
The NICHOLSON also carries NA TO Sea-Sparrow Anti-Air Missile System, Vulcan Phalanx Close In Weapons System,
Harpoon Anti-Ship Cruise Missile System and two MK 45 Light Weight Five Inch Guns, all integrated by the Navy Tactical
Da ta System. Aided by the MK 86 Digital Fire Control System, NICHOLSON is prepared for assignments in the secondary
mission areas of shore bombardment, surface warfare action and anti-aircraft warfare. The ANXSPG-60 Fire Control Radar
and the ANXSPQ-9 Surface Track-while-Scan Radar provide inputs to the Fire Control computers for subsequent target
designa tion and weapons assignment. The NA TO Sea Sparrow system, along with the Vulcan Phalanx, two Five-Inch guns, the
SLQ-32 Electronics Surveillance and super RBOC Launcher Systems provide N1 CH OLSON with an excellent missile defense
capability. The Harpoon Anti-Ship Cruise Missile provides NICHOLSON with a powerful over-the-horizon capability.
Although built for maximum combat effectiveness, crew comfort and habitability are an integral part of NICHOLSONB
design. The berthing compartments are spacious, and the ship is equipped with many amenities not usually found in other
destroyer classes. These include a Crew's Library, Lounge and Gymnasium. Automated weapons and engineering systems
permit opera tion of the ship, the size ofa World War II Light Cruiser, by a reduced crew of a pproxima tely 20 Ofhcers and 320

Machines, Laundry, Barber Shop, and most important, the disbursmg of government funds, namely I PA YDA Yj , , .
Ship Serviceman KSHJ: The goal of the ship 's servicemen is "Service to the Crew". Whether it 's clean
laundry, a soda from the machine, a regulation haircut, or a quick shopping trip through the Shipla
Store, the SH 's provide a few of life 's necessities and conveniences.
Storekeeper fSK2: When any work center needs spare parts, technical items, special clothing and
essential consummables they depend on the Storekeepers. By procuring, receiving and distributing
these items, the SK 's make an important contribution toward keeping NICHOLSON "EVER
Disbursing Clerk KDKJ: Without a doubt, NlCHOLSON's crew has two favorite days a month, the
I ' 15th and the 30th, which are paydays. On a business scale the Navy is comparable to the largest
I " -' civilian enterprises, and by taking care of tra vel claims, allotments, per diem pa y, and a host of other
things that affect our wallets, the DK 's indeed have a full time job.
Mess Management Specialist KMSI: NICI-IOLSON,s Mess Specialists are responsible for providing
R JX appealing, nourishing meals four times a day. This requires the efforts of ll cooks and fourteen
A p messcooks. While underway in the gulf the cooks worked many long hours. A real favorite ofthe crew
was the fantail cookout with hamburgers, hot dogs, and all the Hxin 's. The cookouts were a real morale
booster and special thanks are in order to all involved for their extra effort . . .

L It takes precise navigation to take NICH OLSON through a broad expanse of
water and bring her back into port again. This is the job of the Quartermasters, and to accomplish it
they use methods as old as the PYTHAGORIAN THEOREM in CELESTIAL NA VIGA TION and
as modern as the computer.
Yeoman QYNZ: OfHcial correspondence with government agencies, private industry, and individuals is
an important part of the Navy. Letters, messages and records must be prepared to procure and use the
personnel and materials to operate the ship. Paperwork keeps the record straight, and NICHOL-
SON 's Yeoman deal with mountains of it every day.
Personnelman QPNQ: Helping crewmembers stay aware of Na vy ratings, training, promotion require-
ments, educational opportunities and beneHts is a huge task. Performing all these duties that relate to
Personnel Administration is the job of the Personnelman.
Postal Clerk fPC2.' NICHOLS ON is PC is one of our fa vorite crewmembers, since he is responsible for
delivering letters and packages from loved ones. That in itself is a big responsibility, but he also has to
deal with incoming and outgoing business mail. With the help of letter writers, PC is without a doubt
the largest morale booster on board.
Hospital Corpsman I HM J: NI CH OLSON 's corpsman are a professional team who are ready and able
to deal with almost any emergency health-care need. It is also their job to inspect spaces for
cleanliness, and to make sure food service personnel are healthy and clean. During extended periods at
sea, the crew relies on the Corpsman for their good health.
Master-at-Arms IMAX The Master-at-Arms are the ships "Police Forcen. They are charged with
enforcing lalws and regulations that govern the military community and with investigating violations of
flCMJ.Articles. They organize and train personnel assigned to police duties, and are instrumental in
indoctrina ting new crewmembers. It is a 24 hour job to ensure security and NICH OLSON 's MA s are
always ready to support good order and discipline.

THE TUGS AWFULLY SLOW AS HEAR TS

IT SEEMED AN ETERNITY BEFORE THE PIER CAME
, IN SIGHT WE ALL LOOKED FOR LOVED ONES, WHO
HAD BEEN HIDDEN FROM OUR SIGHT THE CROWD
SEEMED ENDLESS, AS WE ALL STRAINED TO SEE
JUST THOSE LOVED ONES WHO WAITED FOR ME.
