TORTUGA has earned the following unit awards: the Nation- al Defense Service Medal, the Humanitarian Service Medal, and the Sea Service Ribbon. VVI-IAT'S A TORTUGA? The TORTUGA takes its name from a group of seven small islands located about 68nm west of Key West, Fl. The Tortuga Islands were discovered in 1513 by Ponce de Leon who gave them the Spanish name for the huge sea turtles found there. For 300 years they were home to pirates. The U.S. bought the islands from Spain in 1819 to strengthen the defense of her southern coast. Fortjefferson, completed in 1861, is the landmark of the islands. Centrally located and sur- rounded by a deep channel and harbor, it is a hexagonal, three- tiered citadel with a 70 ft wide, 30 ft deep moat, five ft thick outer walls, and sides measuring 450 ft long and 60 ft high. 243 large caliber guns protect the fort, but not one of them has ever been fired. The fort has been used as a prison, and as a communication and coaling station by the U.S. Navy. The U.S. Fleet was sta- tioned there in 1989 in anticipation of war with Spain. In 1904 the islands were set aside as a Federal Bird Reservation, and they have been a national historic site since 1935. This is the second ship to bear the name TORTUGA. The TORTUGA QLSD 261 was commissioned in 1945 and earned 5 battle stars for her service during the Korean War and 8 more for Vietnam action. Her name was stricken from the Naval Ves- sel register in 1976. 9 ww? i WV .

The officers and chiefs were assigned jobs by the Chief Mess Specialist Lou Solomon and the Food Service Atten- dents assigned to S-4 division at the time. From the beginning the khakis set out to show their intent to provide service to the crew. The menu consisted of pizzas, sodas, baked beans, creamed corn, chocolate cake, and soft serve ice cream. The biggest thrill for the crew was watching their favorite or most hated khaki as the case may be get their hands and other things dirty while washing dishes, bussing tables, and taking out the trash.

Providing positive results for the mind and body many people found renewed energy, and improved self images through their regular workout routines. Many athletic events were organized by the Athletic Officer, Lt Kurt Kastner includ- ing inter-MARG basketball tournaments, vol- leyball games with host countries, local road races, an iron man competition, and the "Run Across the Atlanticn. Others enjoyed swimming, rock climbing, and bike riding while inport.

The projects were a good way for the ship to represent the Unit- ed States in a positive light, but more importantly they gave those crew members and embarked marines involved an opportunity to contribute, through their time and efforts, to a good cause and in the end gain a great deal of personal satisfaction. TORTUGA sailors and marines were involved in 7 such projects which included fixing up a handicapped chil- drens farm, giving tours to 60 Ethiopian children, rebuilding an orphanage, helping handi- capped children swim, and the Home Hospitality Program.

Like the sailors the marines stood watches includ- mm- N I5 ing TACLOG Watch, roving patrol, and cargo securi- ty watch. They also made up half of the food service attendants and provided a great deal of manpower and muscle to the many working parties and special evolutions that were called away throughout the deployment.

Palma De Mallorca, a resort island in the Balearic Islands, was TORTUGA'S first liberty port. Arriving in the rain and anchoring while waiting for the pilot dampened some spirits, but only until the sun came out and the ship was pierside a few hours later. Once on the beach the crew and embarked troops headed for the beaches, shops, beautiful cathedral, and abundant dining and drinking establishments. The first taste of European culture for most of the crew proved to be sweet but short when the ship was ordered to sortie just 36 hours after arrival in support of a spe- cial operations exercise in the Central Mediterranean. PAL Q S 4 GREECE Following a brief stint in the Adriatic in support of Operation Provide Promise, TORTUGA'S schedule was modified to include a stop in Corfu, Greece. i Anchored just l mile from the boat landing the crew enjoyed its first liberty port from 2-7ju1y.

Offering great food, good shop- ping, and a rich history it promised to be a good time for all hands. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate, and the rain combined with the walk to the center of town put a damper on some people's plans.

TORTUGA spent 22-30 October at anchor and inport in Almeria, Spain, a quaint town in the southeastern part of Spain less than 100 miles from Gibral- tar. Here the crew and embarked troops found many of the same attrac- tions as in the other Mediterranean ports they visited, namely eating, drinking, dancing, and sightseeing. Of particular interest to many people was the castle on the hill Qcenter leftj. Not only did the crew find good liberty here, but numerous maintenance jobs were accomplished by the USS PUGET SOUND as she began her deployment. ERIA fc GRGCCG Casablanca was TORTUGA'S last and probably best port visit. Making preps weeks in advance she performed superbly as the host ship for the DOD 50th Anniversary Cel- ebration of the WWII landing in North Africa. The biggest event of the 4 day visit was the Ambassador's reception on the flight deck attended by 500 dignitaries who dined on food prepared by S2 division while listen- ing to the Sixth Fleet Band. The highlight of the evening was a surprise visit by actor Robin Williams. On liberty the crew and embarked troops found the local people to be very friendly, the food excellent, and the shopping unequalled by any other port visited.

The qualification helps sailors advance to and also helps them to understand their shipmates better by familiarizing them with other rates. Per- haps the most tangible advantage of gain- ing ESWS qualification is the recognition that comes with it. The pin tells others that the person Wearing it has shown great initiative, and discipline to obtain it and that he can therefore bear greater tI'U.St and I'CSpO1'1Sibilil1y.

While some of us lay about our bunks at night the sailor stood the watch While others of us were attending schools, the sailor stood the watch and yes, even before many of us were born, sailors stood the watch. As his family watched the storm clouds of war brewing on the horizons of history, he stood the watch. The sailor looked ashore and saw his family often needing his guidance but he knew he must stay because he had the watch. For many years he has stood the watch so that we and our fellow countrymen could sleep soundly, in safety, knowing that a sailor would stand the watch. Today we can say our watch stands relieved. Relieved by those we have led, guided and trained. Shipmates of Tortuga, you stand relieved. c'Fair Winds 84 Following Seas" Wadsworth Publishing Compmgy Marceline, Missouri 64658 USA Barry Brown, Janaf Office, Suite 201 Norfolk, VA 235021 18041466-7575 S 1 N -wwf " 1.
