The amphibious assault ship USS Tripoli KLPH-101 is named after the famous "Battle of Tripoli" fD1C' tured on the inside cover of this bookl, the famous fleet-shore operation that inspired the words of the .Marlne Hymn-"to the shores of Tripoli." In the year 1805, a small group of United States Marines under Lieu- tenant Presley N. O'Bannon, along with a patchwork army of Arabs and Greeks, marched 600 miles over sun- parched deserts to assault and cap- ture the city of Derne in North Africa. This land assault was the de- cisive action in the Tripolitan War C1801-18055, a war that humbled p1- ratical Tripoli, one of the Barbary States. The Barbary pirates, who for years had exacted tribute from the United States and from European powers for- safe passage on the seas, had become intolerable. The major offender was the Bey of Tripoli, Yusuf Caramanli, who touched off the war when he chopped down the flagpolein front of the American consulate in 1801 and began attacks 'on U.S. commerce. Four United States men-of-war were organized as a Mediterranean Squadron to bring Yusuf to heel. After four years of 'minor landings and desperate sea fights, Lieutenant O'Bannon led his march on Derne and, with the help of a cannonade off- shore by three Navy ships, became the first' American officer to raise the Stars and Stripes over a captured fortress in the Old World. A hastily signed treaty in 1805 abolished all annual payments to Tripoli and the Navy withdrew its squadron in 1807. However, the re- sumption of activity by the pirates immediately prior to the War of 1812 forced the Navy to put a permanent end to the practice with a strong show of force. . . The first United States Navy ship to bear the name Tripoli was CVE- 64, a notable World War II escort aircraft carrier. Participating in oper- ations off the coast of South America, the first Tripoli .served as thellflag- ship for an anti-submarine warfare task force. She was i decommissioned in 1958. . The present-day Tripoli was built by the. Ingalls Shipbuilding Di- vision of .Litton Industries, Pascag- oula, Mississippi.. Her keel was laid on June 15, 1964, and she was chris- tened on July 31, 1965. USS Trfpoli KLPH-101 underway in support of amphibious operations off the coast of the Republic of Vietnam After commissioning on August 6, 1966, the United States Ship Tripoli KLPH-102 was outfitted at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. Moving to the West Coast via the Panama Canal, the ship began operating out of her home port of San Diego, California. After extensive training off the California coast, Tripoli departed the United States on May 1, 1967, for the Western Pacific. Arriving. on station near the Demilitar- ized Zone of Vietnam, Tripoli joined Amphib- ious Ready Group "Bravo", where she served as flagship for the Ready Group Commander. As a member of the Seventh Fleet Ready Group, g Tripoli launched eight, fullgscale am- phibious assaults against insurgent com- munist guerilla and North Vietnamese Regu- lar Army troops. The ship also served as a support vessel, providing troops ashore with food, ammunition, water, and a base for the immediate evacuation and treatment of wounded personnel. ' Tripoli returned to her .home port on December 23, 1967. Her actions during the first deployment were rewarded when the Secretary of the Navy presented the assault ship the Navy Unit Commendation ,and the Meritorious Unit Commendation in May 1968. Early that same year, Tripoli again underwent training in preparation for her second Vietnam deployment. On June 12, after six months in the United States, she left port for Vietnamese waters. Arriving on station, Tripoli again served as flagship for Amphibious Ready Group "Bravo", participating in nine major am- phibious assault and support operations against communist elements in Vietnam. This included Operation "Bold Mariner'q', the largest amphibious landing since the Kor- ean conflict in the 1950s. On March 19, 1969, Tripoli returned to San Diego, completing a 280-day deployment. Following upkeep at the San Diego Naval Station in June, the ship again underwent training in preparation for her third Vietnam deployment. Departing San Diego on November 1, Tripoli assumed duties as flagship for Am- phibious Ready Group "Alfa". In early Feb- ruary 1970, she participated in the "Phase III" withdrawal of American combat forces from Vietnam, transporting over 1,200 U.S. Marines from Da Nang to San Diego. Returning to the West Pacific area in early March, Tripoli participated in Oper- ation "Golden Dragon", a major amphibious training exercise off the coast of the Re- public of South Korea. She completed her third deployment on June 24, 1970. 1 r s 4 f " 'A ff, , if MVK Q X , f if , X S K f f X ,f , ,, 4 , X ,f f ,ZA ,MQW ,, L . X ,, XXX f 'ff W X6 X K X X X f ff ' . X X W! :Q X .

Al- though they are frequently called to foreign sections of the ship, their primary concern is for the mainte- nance of Tripoli 's auxiliary equipment. Keeping the ship cool inthe sweltering climate of the South China Sea is no easy task, nor is it simple to adjust to the sudden cold fronts that plague the tropics. Still, A division copes with these problems on a rou- tine, day-to-day basis. Upkeep of the two giant aircraft elevators aboard Tripoli and supply' IHS compressed air for the scores Of Pneumatic tools are two additional duties that are among those of A division. ..1-A ,..,,,,.,.:,....,,...,.,--A1M,f..m..., .,W.., -2- -.X--A v.--M - V-:wr-1--1-ff -vm-mf-s -.,,,,, -,,-,.,., .-x.,.,,,,,..-,,, ..,.-...K,...-,,..,.,,.1..........,. , - - , -- J,2..?', ...,.. . -.. --,..,..-.,,. . ... vp.....x.. .- W... f ,,,4-, f f f ,f . ,. , ,,,., W V, '44 , fhn .

The principal concern of these men is the integrity and repair of the ship's hull and in- ternal structure. At all times when at sea, and even more vitally when in a combat zone, the capability of a naval vessel to withstand damage is of ultimate importance 'to the successful comple- tion of her mission. Damage control teams are constantly enforcing the safety requirements essential to this concept, with the result that Tripoli is capable of sustaining vast amounts of damage without allowing her mls sion to be 1mpa1red Shipfltters and carpenters spend much of their time 1n the construc tion and reconstruction of areas of the ship with an eye to the crews divisions big purpose the ships integrity comfort :but thinking primarily of. is X W-4 fl W f W' f V 72 Q Front Row: Left to Right, SF3 Roger Wilson, SF3 Mike Standish, FN Oscar Moore, SF3 Raynaldo Melchor, FN Howard Crosby, and SF3 Herman Vondemkamp.

Deck Istdivision First division is one of two Deck department divisions aboard Tripoli responsible for the general upkeep of the ship. Comprised of Boatswain's Mates and non-rated seamen, the di- vision is charged with the forecastle, paint locker, sail locker and, in gen- eral, the starboard side of the ship. This includes the operation of Trip- oli's largest crane during the loading or offloading of heavy equipment, such as the ship's boats. In addition to the routine task of keeping the ship clean, men of lst division stand watches on the bridge as lookouts, helmsmen and lee helms- men. During underway replenishment, they join with men of 2nd division to control necessary Winches, cranes and lines.

The four, twin mount, 3-inch!5O caliber guns that are the ship's main batteries require constant attention and care to insure they will be ready if and when needed. The- smaller, 50-caliber rapid-fire machine gun mounts lo- cated about the ship are also under Fox division's care. The fire control system that trains the big guns is a complex piece of sophisticated machinery that is al- so in need of constant upkeep to in- sure its readiness.

The new SC division com- bines the common functions of the old S-1 and S-6 divisions, in that it per- forms all stock control and accounting for both general stores and aviation stores. The latter was formerly handled by S-6 division. Located in the former S-1 office, SC division procures, receives and maintains account records for all supply items aboard Tripoli. The records for these hundreds of thou- sands of items-from ballpoint pens to helicopter engines-must be kept accurate and up-to-date. With the aid of a computer and diligent work on the part of SC division personnel, Tripoli 's "general store' ' always comes across with the goods. WSTW4 Sip' 4552? . fi, I .. Supply S C division SKC Brian Pennington. SC-Division is in charge of pro- curing, receiving, storing and ac- counting for all general stores, re- pair parts and other equipment that Tripoli may require while deployed or in port. The records for this myriad of items must be kept accurately and up to date, and SC-Division must know where each part goes whenever it is- issued, which occasionally leads to mysterious situations requiring a Sherlock Holmes. The men of SC are continually stocking and issuing equipment for every other division on the ship, but rarely complain about their busy schedule except for having little time to play blackjack with the computer.

Handling Tripoli's 19 storerooms, over 50,000 different items, is no easy task. SM division's storeroom crews are up to the task, however, as was demonstrated by their efficiency in maintaining supply items during Tripol i fs, deployment , Over 50 requisitions per day are re- ceived by SM division. These must be checked for accuracy and completeness, the item requested must be properly identi- fiedg the request must be screened to de- termine if the item is on hand or must be ordered, the processed request is then for- warded and the item is issued.

S-4 division, sometimes known as "The Bank of Tripoli", is re- sponsible for insuring that the pay- days roll around on schedule. Also among their very important tasks are maintaining over 600 officer and en- listed ,pay records, allotments, and, once a year, compiling tax forms for the entire crew.

V-1 is the flight deck division, responsible for the launching, re- covery and handling of helicopters aboard ship. Specially trained for any type of flight deck emergency, Trip- oli's V-1 division often works in "around-the-clock" shifts in order to conduct flight operations both day and night. The fast tempo of operations on the flight deck require members of V-1 division be easily identifiable. For this reason, many different col- ored shirts are worn-blue by flight deck crewmen, yellow by landing signalmen, and red' by crash crews. The resultant blend of hues provides a very colorful sight for an observer of flight deck activity. Working in freezing rain or burning sun, conveying messages above the scream of jet exhausts by specially designed hand signals, V-1 division diligently carries out its duties.

The division's seven men carry out many varied tasks, from storing support equipment and vehicles to painting and upkeep of the hangar bay itself. The unsung heros of the hangar deck move aircraft, manhandle fork- lifts, store hangar deck cargo and work long hours to the point of be- coming known as Tripoli's second Combat Cargo division. V-3's ability to stow the mountain of hangar deck gear that inevitably' must accompany Tripoli on a deployment is more than remarkable. Day after day, operation after operation, V-3 division keeps on keeping on-a commendable achieve- ment for a "fledgeling". X X. gxx XX . Xa. wx -X.: .X 6 Q x l .fx Q 'X 5150.

And, through the centuries, the ritual of departure has varied but little. Mod dress has replaced the clothing of decades past, and new, modern ships now steam where an- cient mariners once ventured. The feelings and emotions have remained the same. A look of sad- ness, a few last moments and a final wave-that timeless things that endure forever.

Tripoli was fortu- nate to be able to assist in the proj- ect by donating goods to missions and needy schools in Vietnam, Okinawa, the Philippines and Hong Kong. But Project Handclasp didn't stop there. Tripoli's Chaplain, LCDR John F. Dumas, organized a "personal" handclasp from Tripoli, arranging for volunteers from the crew to participate in people-to-people projects. Nicknamed "Project Helping Hand", Tripoli crewmen provided a water pump for a Filipino Boy's Town, painted and tiled mission buildings in Danang, Vietnam, and made monetary contributions' toward the higher educa- tion of superior students in the Philippines. In every port, Chaplain Dumas and his volunteers were at work, quietly making contributions to the welfare of local inhabitants., In re- turn, the people of Vietnam, Okinawa, the Philippines and Hong Kong ex- pressed their gratitude-through many letters of thanks and their warm re- ception of Tripoli volunteers.

As the ship slowly pulled into the harbor and moored at the North Island Naval Air Station, the anticipation of sixteen days' journey across the Pacific ex- ploded into the excitement of seeing family and friends once again.

Marines against simulated enemy beaches and, through the flexibility of the amphibious force, again proved ready to meet any challenge. .s, 203 204 nderway Replenishment Q Underway replenishment is the unique method of refueling a ship at sea. Developed by the Navy over 50 ears ago it is still a task that re- Y , quires determination, skill and seamanship. A fuel hose spans the watery gulf between ships Seen from above, Tripoli crewmen refuel another ship The replenishment is conducted while the ships involved are actually steaming at sea-usually at a speed of 12-15 miles per hour. Lines are passed between the ships as they steam closely together on parallel courses and fuel hoses are then passed across on these lines. Black oil, life blood of Tripoli, is pumped through these hoses and into Tripoli's fuel tanks. During the Pacific, transit in No- vember 1969, Tripoli refueled USS Point Defiance ILSD-312-the first time in over three years that Tripoli acted as a Hseagoing service station." . . . a demanding task -Q.. .........-...aa:..vqa-J.-...X..,...a.u,-....,....,..,.f.....Y....,.,-., fs... 205 V E11 1 3 ii il ,.

Needed supplies are arranged into palletized bundles and lifted from the supply ship to the receiving ship by helicopter. The helos use the "ex- ternal lift" method, which suspends the bundle from the belly of the air- craft. By this method, Tripoli is capa- ble of receiving over 30 tons of sup- plies in 30 minutes.

Over 300 speakers carry the sounds of the KEEE DJ's into each living and working compartment aboard ship. Operating 16 hours a day when at sea, the KEEE music makers provide entertainment, news, weather and information to ship's company and embarked Navy and Marine units. The emphasis is on personalities, with each DJ featuring his own type of music-country-western, popular, soul-jazz, psychedelic and easy- listening. Rounded out by special programs and regular feature broadcasts pro- vided by the American Forces Radio and Television Service, KEEE pre- sents a unique form of seagoing entertainment.
