USS TRIPOLI LPH-101
The USS TRIPOLI CLPH-101 is named after the famous fleet-shore operation that inspired the
words of the Marine Hymn-"to the shores of TRIPOLI." This land assault was the decisive action
in the Tripolitan War C1801-18055, a war that humbled piratical TRIPOLI, one of the Barbary
The first United States Navy ship to bear the name TRIPOLI was a notable World War II Es-
cort Aircraft Carrier. The ship was decomissioned in 1958. .
USS TRIPOLI CLPH-101 is the second ship named after the historic Battlecof TRIPOLI ln
1804. TRIPOLI was built at the Ingalls Shipbuilding Yard in Pascagoula, Mississippi, with her
keel being laid on June 15, 1964. She was launched July 31, 1965, and was subsequently commis-
sioned at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard on August 6, 1966. .
Following outfitting in Philadelphia, TRIPOLI was moved to the West Coast via the Panama
Canal and began operating out of her homeport of San Diego, California. After extensive training
off the California coast, TRIPOLI departed the United States on May 1, 1967, for her first de-
ployment to the Southeast Asian theater during the Vietnam conflict. As a member of the Sev-
enth Fleet Ready Group, TRIPOLI launched eight full-scale amphibious assaults against the in-
surgent communist guerrilla forces and the North Vietnamese Regular Army CRVNJ. In addition
to her role as support ship for surface forces, TRIPOLI also served as a medical base for the im-
mediate evacuation and treatment of wounded personnel. For her actions during this deploy-
ment, TRIPOLI was presented with the Navy Commendation and Meritorious Unit Commenda-
tion by the Secretary of the Navy in May 1968. The later years of Vietnam, as well as the years
following the conflict, had USS TRIPOLI involved in numerous key evolutions, exercises and op-
erations. Again and again, TRIPOLI has proven herself to be a most versatile platform from
which she has launched helicopters and the AV-8 Harrier Vertical Short Lift and TakeoffCVS-
TOLD fixed wing aircraft. In 1974, TRIPOLI became the first amphibious ship to carry a full
squadron of Harrier jets.
As a result of her performance during 1976, TRIPOLI received the coveted Arleigh Burke Fleet
Trophy for achieving the greatest improvement in battle efficiency in the Pacific Fleet, and was
runner-up for the Admiral Flatley Award for Aviation Safety. In 1983, TRIPOLI won the COM-
PHIBRON ONE Professional Olympics for the third consecutive year. In 1985 TRIPOLI was
awarded nine of a possible 11 departmental excellence awards. In 1988, TRIPOLI was awarded
the CNO Safety Award and again won nine of 11 departmental excellence awards - the most
awarded any amphibious ship - and was runner-up for the Battle "E," In 1989, TRIPOLI was sec-
ond to none and won the coveted Battle HE." In 1990, the momentum continued as TRIPOLI was
named the winner of the Secretary of the Navy's New Award for Food Service Excellence.
USS TRIPOLI deployed as its 15th Western Pacific deployment on December 1, 1990 in sup-
port of Operation Desert ShieldfStorm and returned to San Diego on August 8, 1991. The ship
was awarded the Combat Action Ribbon for actions on February 18, 1991 following an Iraqi mine
strike. According to the U.S. Navy Historical Center, the TRIPOLI was the first U.S. Navy vessel
to sustain major mine damage and continue operating since the Civil War.
On October 16, 1992, the "Famous Fighting Ship" Set out once again to put it's name into the
history books in Operation Restore Hope. On December 6, TRIPOLI Arrived on station off the
coast of Somalia. The TRIPOLI was the flatship of the Amphibious Task Unit that spearheaded
Operation Restore Hope. The task force conducted the initial amphibious landing that secured
the International Airport and Seaport in Mogadishu, Somalia on December 9th. After the initial
landing the ATU continued operations in support
of Operation Restore Hope Until February 3, 1993
when it headed up to the Arabian Gulf in support
of Operation Southern Watch.
Over the last 17 years, TRIPOLI has shown to
all she can meet required operational exercises
and evolutions, while at the same time serve as an
example for both the military and civilian com-
munity. Service to the community support to the
fleet and a willingness to support the Navy's mis-
sion are but a few of the phrases which epitomize
USS TRIPOLI. The Famous Fighting ship TRI-
POLI is the United States Navy at its best.

encounter. In the most somber of occasions the Chaplain's office
conducts burials at sea and memorial services.

FOX DI I IO
When it comes to the responsibility for the defense of the
air space around the USS Tripoli, the men of Fox Division
are the top LPH Fire Controlmen in the Pacific Fleet. The
FCs maintain and operate the Close-In Weapons System
CCIWSJ and the Basic Point Defense Surface Missile System
CBPDSMSJ. During the ship's last competitive cycle, the
Fire Controlmen of Fox Division received the Battle Effi-
ciency Excellence Award.
In addition to maintaining all their high tech equipment,
the men of Fox Division find time for other activities not so
technical. Field days, unreps, sea details, zone inspections
and long watches are all apart of the everyday routine.
Trusty Shellbacks one and all, Tripoli's Fire Controlmen
place ordnance on target!

BOILER DI I IC
B-Division: Unsung Heroes
On a zone inspection day, if you hear grumbling from an in-
spector over the zone they have been assigned, most likely that
zone is the Fireroom.
In the oppressive heat and dripping sweat of this feared "Un-
derworld," the men of B-division toil to produce the source of
the ship's energy - 655 PSI steam. This steam generates elec-
tricity and drives the mighty Tripoli through its missions, to
and from ports, and finally, safely home.
Throughout "Operation Restore Hope," B-Division, or Boil-
ers Division, kept the boilers steaming with remarkably few ca-
sualties. Three workcenters combined to produce this shining
effort - EBO1, EB13, and EB14. EBO1 workcenter main-
tained and operated two 600 PSI Combustion Engineering boil-
ers and their associated auxiliary equipment. EBl3 maintained
the ship's gauge calibration equipment and essential mainte-
nance and testing of the Automatic Boiler Control System.
EB14 received, tested, and transferred over three million gal-
lons of fuel.
All of this 'performance came from a group that seldom
shares the spotlight. So remember, when that movie and hot
shower help pull you through yet another day in an arduous
and seemingly endless WestPac, pass a B.T., for any engineer,
for that matterl your respect.
They have earned it!
The motto of the Tripoli fireroom

Aerography has come a long way since "Red
sky at night, Sailor's delight." Today, Aerogra-
pher's Mates CAG'sJ are responsible for a broad
spectrum of environmental support including
meteorological, oceanographic, acoustic, and
electromagnetic refractive effects predictions.
Using an assortment of complex computer
software, communications equipment, and ob-
servation and analysis techniques, OA Division
prepares surface and subsurface observations,
as well as custom tailored briefs, tidal data, as-
tronomical tables, surf forecasts, and anoma-
lous propagation conditions forecasts.

The primary mission of the OC Division is to provide safe, orderly, and
expeditious movement of aircraft within TRIPOLI's airspace. The Divi-
sion is manned by Air Traffic Controllers fAC'sJ who work in the ship's
Helicopter Direction Center. All AC's are graduates of the Navy's Air
Traffic Control School, a three month course that teaches Federal Avia-
tion Administration rules, aviation weather, and provides controllers with
practical experience in radar and tower control positions.
The AC's are responsible for pre-flight planning briefs, radar arrival
and departure control, amphibious assault control, search and rescue co-
ordination, MEDEVAC support, and precision radar control.
During OPERATION RESTORE HOPE the TRIPOLI AC's sequenced
as many as 23 helicopters at a time to and from Helicopter Landing Zones
in Mogadishu. These included helicopters from France, Canada, India,
and Australia. During the early stages of the operation they were called
upon to direct aircraft arriving and departing Mogadishu International
Airport. Additionally, they were called upon to coordinate the arrival of
over 50 MEDEVACS to TRIPOLI.

The OE Division Team is comprised of
highly trained and professional technicians.
These men perform preventive and corrective
maintenance on a variety of Command and
Control systems, including communications,
radars, electronic navigation systems, meteoro-
logical equipment and electronic identification
The men of OE DIVISION have earned
themselves a well-deserved reputation as tech-
nical experts, and have been called on to pro-
vide service throughout the fleet. In fact, dur-
ing the initial phases of OPERATION RE-

a threat to TRIPOLI, they can take appropriate ac-
tions to counter the threat.
The PH's primary mission is Photo Intelligence.
They photograph actual and simulated battle opera-

STOCK CONTROL CS-11: The men
of S-1 have performed miracles at the
controls of the SUADPS terminals.
They have produced numbers and jus-
tifications that have resulted in multi-
ple increases in COMNAVSURFPAC
OPTAR allocations. For Operation Re-
store Hope, additional ship operational
costs exceeded S369,000.00 with the ex-
ception of fuel and aviation mainte-
nance. An extended transportation
pipeline coupled with 30 vice 15 days
AFS hits compounded planning efforts.
In addition, Stock Control's satellite
communication links lured reporters
during "OPERATION RESTORE

major Radio!Television stations all
over the world.

S-4 Division: Disbursing
The S-4 Division provides one of the
top morale boosters to the crew,
money. The disbursing clerks were
kept busy with piles of paperwork nec-
essary to allow all crew members to re-
ceive extra money for family separation
allowance, imminent danger pay, and
tax-free pay. They also cashed over a
million dollars in checks to support
various liberty habits. DK1 Sales led
the way, processing hundreds of travel
claims. He also supervised DK2 Dodds
and DK3 Cone while they knocked out
never-ending piles of forms and cured
problem accounts associated with being
away from home. They also trained the
next generation, DKSR Westbrooks.
DK1 sported his large booty of gold

proved to be one of the best aboard TRIPOLI.
Providing hot meals four times daily for up to
1800 sailors and marines, Food Service personnel
prepared and served 453,000 eggs, brewed 14,400
gallons of coffee, and baked 23,400 loaves of
bread. As if that's not enough, Food Service pre-
pared special meals on Thanksgiving, Christmas,
New Year's Day, steel beach picnics, nacho

Loving a Sailor is not always gay,
Loving him truly is a high price to pay,
It's being alone with nothing to hold,
it's being young, but feeling so old,
lt's having him whisper his love for you,
it's whispering back, you love him too.
There's always a kiss and a promise for more,
As his ship slowly glides away from shore,
Reluctantly, painfully, letting him go,
while you're dying inside from wanting him so,
Watching him leave with eyes full of tears,
standing alone with your hopes, dreams, and fears,
lt's sending a letter with a stamp upside down,
to a far away love in a far away town,
It's going to church, to kneel and to pray,
and really meaning the things that you say,
Days go by - no mail for a spell,
you wait for some word to hear that he's well,
Then a letter arrives and you've given in,
to open this letter and read with a grin,
Yes, he is well and misses you so,
and filled with the love you wanted to know,
Weeks are like months and months are like years,
you wait for the day you'll have no more fears,
Days go by slowly - How many have passed?
Then suddenly you realize it's here at last!
Yes, loving a sailor isn't much fun,
but it worth the price when the battle is won,
And remember he's thinking of you everyday,
He's sad, He's lonely, while so far away,
So love him and miss him and hold your.head high,
be strong and have faith - wipe that tear from your eye,
Your man's a Seafarer like that of an ancient trader,
As you already know, that's the high price you pay for loving
a sailor . . .
