USS STEIN CFF-10653, the thirtieth of forty-six IRNQX
class frigates is named in honor of Corporal Tony Stein,
Marine hero and World War ll Medal of Honor winner. llic
KNOX class is configured for optimum anti-submarine war
fare performance. Equipped with the Harpoon missile sys-
tem and 5 inch!54 caliber dual purpose rapid fire gun,
STEIN is capable of lighting defensively against air and
surface threats and providing naval gunfire support lor
amphibious missions ashore.
The keel for USS STEIN was laid on 1 June 1970 at
Lockheed Shipbuilding in Seatle, Washington. She was
launched 19 December 1970 and was commissioned on 8
January 1972 at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremer-
STEIN is powered by two automatically fired boilers
which supply 1200 psi steam through dual steam turbines
to a single tive bladed screw. The propulsion plant is rated
at 55,000 shaft HP. STEIN's cruising radius is over 4,000
nautical miles and she is capable of a maximum speed in
excess of 27 knots.
STEIN has made nine overseas deployments in her 19
years of commissioned service, including the complete cir-
cumnavigation of the globe in 1987. She has operated in
support of national policy in the Iran hostage crisis, Iran-
Iraq War, and most recently in Operation Desert Storm.
STEIN has visited over thirty countries and served as a
goodwill ambassador the world over. STElN's unit awards
include two Meritorious Unit Citations, two Navy Expedi-
tionary Medals, the Humanitarian Service Medal, and the
Southwest Asia Service Medal. STEIN is scheduled to be
decommissioned and transferred to the Fleet Reserve as a

2 Ships History
"For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his own
life above and beyond the call of duty while serving with Company
A, Ist Battalion, 28th Marines, 5th Marine Division, in action
against enemy Japanese forces on Iwo Jima, in the Volcano
lsiands, 19 February 1 945.
When his comrades were stalled by a concentrated machine gun
and mortar barrage, he gallantly stood upright and exposed him-
self to the enemy's view, thereby drawing the hostile fire to his own
position and enabling him to obsenfe the position of the furiously
blazing hostile guns.
Determined to neutralize the strategically placed weapons, he
boldly charged the enemy pillboxes one by one, and succeeded in
killing 20 of the enemy during the furious single handed assault.
Cool and courageous under the merciless hail of exploding
shells and bullets which fell to all sides, he continued to deliver the
fire of his skillfully improvised aircraft type weapon at a tremen-
dous rate of speed, which rapidly exhausted his ammunition.
Undaunted, he removed his helmet and shoes to expedite his
movements and ran back to the beach for additional ammunition,
making a total of eight trips under intense fire and carrying or
assisting a wounded man back each time.
Despite the unrelenting savageiy and confusion of battle, he
rendered prompt assistance to his platoon whenever the unit was
in position, directing the tire ofa half track against a stubbom pill-
box until he had effected the ultimate destruction of the enemy for-
tification. Later in theday, although his weapon was twice shot
from his hands, he personally covered the withdraw of his platoon
to the company position.
Stouthearted and indomitable, Corporal Stein, by his aggressive
initiative, sound judgment, and unwavering devotion to duty in the
face of terrific odds, contributed materially to the fulfillment of his
mission, and his outstanding valor throughout the bitter hours of
conflict sustains and enhances the highest traditions of the U. S.
Naval Service. "

Everything that happens on STEIN
begins in the Fireroom, where two
1200 psi boilers convert water into
the steam which is the lifeblood of the
ship. Twenty-four hours a day, seven
days a week, the ship's Boiler Techs
fBTl precisely monitor and operate
the ship's boilers and all their support
systems, including fuel, feed water,
and the complex of pumps and piping
that move it all around. By the end of
the deployment, the BT 's had logged
nearly 4,000 hours of ensuring the
engine room and generators were
kept supplied with high quality steam.

Weapons Department is the long
arm of STEIN. The sailors who man
and maintain the weapons systems
are also responsible for the physical
security of the ship and are involved
in special deck evolutions. Members
of Weapons Department man the
helm and leehelm, stand lookout, and
care for ship's boats and most of the
exterior of the ship.
Weapons Department consists of
three divisions: First, AS, and Cr.
Among other things, First Division, is Lieutenant Brian Rinaldi, USN
responsible for conducting deck evo- weapons ofncer
lutions such as underway replenish-
ment. STEIN conducted over thirty throughout the deployment.

uriy up and wait? This phrase took on
new meaning for Battle Group Bravo.
ln early December 1990, BG Bravo
was told to be ready on a moment's
notice to deploy to the Arabian Gulf in support
of Operation Desert Shield. On STEIH, that
meant the Holiday leave period would have to
be cut short and the ship would have to be
brought up to the highest state of readiness in
a very short time. Even after apparently getting
the go ahead to deploy on several different
occasions, STEIN and the other Battle Group
ships sat in port - waiting.
Finally, after numerous false starts, STEIN
sailed out of San Diego on the dismal morning
of 1 March 1991. After two weeks off the coast
of Southern California conducting a Readiness
Exercise, STEIN and BG Bravo steamed west
toward the Phillipines. After a brief port call in
Subic Bay, the Battle Group split up: the small
boys headed for Penang, Malaysia and the large
ships for ports in Thailand.
Next, the Battle Group sailed for the Arabian
Gulf, where we relieved the RANGER Battle
Group. Multi-National Force Operations were
our main task while standing by in the event of
a reflash of hostilities in the regions. There
were numerous port visits, including the United
Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Oman.
On our return transit, we cleansed the ship of
Slimy Wogs, conducted ASW operations with
U.S. Navy submarines, senfed as the Flag Ship
for COMDESRON 21, and visited Thailand, Hong
Kong and Hawaii. On 27 August 1991,just
short of the six month mark, we returned home
to a fabulous welcome. For her efforts in the
Gulf Region, STEIN was awarded the Southwest
Asia Service Medal and Sea Service Ribbon.
SS Himitz fCVH 681 served as
the Flag Ship for Commander
Cruiser Destroyer Group THREE as
well as Commander Destroyer
TEIN did not put to sea
alone. After we left San
Diego harbor in the tor-
rential rain, STEIN met up
with the ships we would see so
much of over the next six months.
The Nimitz Carrier Battle Group,
commanded by Commander, Cruis-
er Destroyer Group THREE, Rear
Admiral Phil Quast, consisted of
seven ships in all. s
The USS NIMITZ, with aircraft
from Carrier Air Wing NINE, was the
flag ship for the Battle Group. With
her F-14A Plus fighters, FIA-18 and
A-6 Intruder attack aircraft, H-60
helicopters, and many others, she
would provide the air support and
command, and control in case of
reflash of hostilities in the Gulf.

cruiser, carried powerful Tomahawk

en STEIN arrived in the
Gulf in late April, there were
naval units from over fifteen
allied nations operating in
the region. Because hostilities could
have resumed at any time, this naval
presence had to be maintained at a
high state of readiness. Also, because
the units were from many different
nations, US Navy ships needed to
know how to coordinate and operate
effectively with them. Because the
Ciulf war proved the vital importance
of the region to other nations, many
future operations in the Arabian Gulf
are likely to be Multi-national efforts.
Thus, STEIN, through operations with
allied warships, was a vital tool for
forging a new method of operations
for the Gulf.
STEIN participated in Multinational
Force QMNFJ Ops throughout our stay
in the Gulf. Our first exposure to
working with foreign navies was a
joint exercise coordinated by STEIN
between the Royal Navy and the
Argentinians. It marked the first major
interaction between ships from these
two countries since the Falkland
Island War. Separate and joint exercis-
es with the French, Italian, Spanish,
and Dutch Navies followed - just to
Our MNF OPS trademark was the

ever possible. The idea
behind a COMREL Project is
simple: help out a charity or
other group in a foreign
port by lending time, mus-
cle, and knowhow. The ben-
ehts of these projects are
far reaching. Plot only do
the folks involved in the
project get a good feeling
for helping out, the charity
gets people to help out with
tasks which otherwise
would not get done. ln
addition, a COMREL project
fosters good relations with
the host country. This is
useful to offset the negative
stereotypes of American
sailors which are prevalent
in some countries. A few
good deeds can go a long
way to changing this often
Here are some Commu-
nity relations projects under
taken by STEIN crew mem-
bers throughout the deploy-
ment. ln Penang, Malaysia,
about ten of the crew
repaired toys and did light
maintenance at the Sepa-
stik Children's Center. In
Hong Kong, crew members
cleaned up debris at a
school. Projects were also
held in the Philippines and

The first liberty port of
the deployment was the
Malaysian resort town of
Penang. Located on the
Westem outlet of the Straits
of Malacca, Penang was vir-
tually unknoum to even the
most seasoned Westpac
veteran prior to our visit in
early April. Fondly de-
scribed as the "Pearl of the
Orient," the city had a dis-
tinct British Colonial charm.
Hotels in Penang were plen-
tiful and relatively inexpen-
sive. Much of the crew took
advantage of the maximum
liberty policy and got away
from it all at one of
Penang's tropical resorts.
shopping, or lounging at a
pool side bar were the most
popular pursuits by day,
while much of the crew
gathered for "Stein Night" at
the Fun Pub after dark.
While two-thirds of the
66 Penang, Malaysia
crew relaxed ashore, the
duty sections hosted an
open ship visit for lowl rcs-
idents and tourists. llun-
dreds of people visited thc
ship over several days.
With sights like the
Reclining Buddha and Kom-
tar Tower, hotels like the
Park Royal and Continental,
and hot spots like the Fun
Pub and Hong Kong liar,
Penang, Malaysia was defi-
nitely the biggest surprise
of Westpac '91 .

he final port in the Ciulf
region was the ancient
city of Muscat, Oman.
Carved out of the craggy
cliffs of the Eastern Arabian Pennin-
sula, Muscat was a heavily fortified
haven for pirates and spice traders
from the middle ages until early
modern times. The ruins of citadels
and huge turretsjutt from the rock
right up to the water's edge. It was
in Muscat that we celebrated the
Forth of July with a barbecue spon-
sored by the American Embassy.
Muscat has a definite British influence. The westem hotels,
including the Al Bustan Palace and the InterContinental Hotel
are among the best in the Arab region. The bars in the hotels
were typical English pubs, filled with ex-patriots and sewing
Fosters and Carlsburg on tap.
There was quite a lot to see in Muscat. The ruined castles
and turrets, as well as the Sultan's palace were good places
to visit. Because it was a liberty port, some of the crew got
hotel rooms and spent the time in the refrigerated swimming
pools of the hotels. For sheer opulence, the Al Bustan Palace,
voted one of the top ten hotels in the world, was the place to

little known feature
of a long deploy-
ment is the invita-
tion to the fathers,
sons, and male friends of
the crewmembers tojoin us
for the last week of the
return transit. These
"tigers" fly to Hawaii and
ride the ship into San
Diego. This year, most of
the tigers flew in together
on a package deal. About
forty tigers embarked for
the return trip after two
days of sightseeing in
Because we wanted to
make the tigers feel at
home, movies were run on
the Site-TV system most of
the day, meal hours were
extended, and there was a
more casual outlook
throughout the week.
The highlight of the week
was the gunnery demon-
stration. The crew showed
their prowess on virtually
every weapon in STEIN's
arsenal. Fifty caliber
machine guns, lVl60's, the
25lVllVl chain gun, and the 5
inch!54 caliber mount were
Some tigers, most
notably Denis Loncto and
Buddy Davis, stood watch
with their sons - even the
dreaded midwatch. All in
all, having the tigers on
board was a welcome diver-
sion from normal routine.

t is impossible to describe
how much work goes into '45
a cruise book. The pro-
cess starts with the collec-
tion and organization of pho-
tographs. The rough layout
forms are prepared and the
bugs are worked out before
the final layout forms are pre-
pared. From the date of ship-
ment of all the final materials,
the book takes twelve weeks
to manufacture and ship.
Welfare and Recreation was
extremely helpful in voting
funds for the book and they
purchased one book for each Ensign Joe Stengel
Special thanks for photog-
raphy goes out to all the peo-
ple who submitted pictures to
supplement those taken by
