This land assault was the decisive action in the Tripolitan War C1801-18055, a war that humbled piratical TRIPOLI, one of the Barbary States. 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. -.,--L..,.....,, , -1 Y , ' --f:s-1----..-,,....,-N....N.......f,......, -....,..,..-.., mgq1w---vv.g.u.-q.-.- ,.,..............-aJQ!m. , , f f ,M W' , A , ,,,.,U, ,,.

As the Navy continues to ad- vance in areas of technology, Signalman keep alive the traditional skills of the seafarer of yesteryear. They communicate visually with the time tested method of Signal Flags, Flashinglight and Semaphore to send Naval messages to other ships. In other areas of high technology, Signalman use night vision scopes and Chemi- cal Warfare Directional Devices to meet today's warfare requirements. "Sigs" also assist in the safe navigation of Tripoli, by serving as expert lookouts when transiting treacherous waters. When inport, and occasionally when out at sea, Signalman handle all Honors and Ceremonies. - - 1.1-ff' l l 4 - clockwise from top: SMSN Woodhouse and SMSN Hodgson hangin' on the bridge.

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!

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 BTCKSWJ D-Coomey BTCKSWJ A. Guarin BT1 L. Alba BTI J. Hardy BT1 D, Ward BT2 L' Beard BT2 E- Fraijo BT2 T. Schwengler BT3 P.

OC DIVISIO 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. Left: Lt. Gress talks to the CO.

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 from Singapore and the Gulf, and DK2 spent hours awaiting the next letter from home.

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 nights, etc. Food Service went beyond Tripoli's mess decks by providing extended provisions sup- port to marines from all three ARG ships and var- ious beach detachments in Mogadishu, including the U.S. Embassy in Somalia. As a result, the "FAMOUS FIGHTING SHIP" maintains her reputation of owning one of the finest floating restaurants in the fleet.

TACRON ELEVEN DET ONE ' 04 May 93 During this 92'-93' deployment, Tacron Eleven Det One played an important role as the heart of the air picture. This squadron of 21 personnel, lead by Com- mander W.M. Lipsmeyer, implemented the Amphibious Objective areas used during deployment. Working along with the HDC, these group of men coordinated between ships and themselves to keep the schedule of the air tasking order as smooth as pos- sible. During Operation Restore Hope, Tacron Air Controllers were responsible for the safe execution of 2,117 helicopter sorties, 9,624 passengers flown, 708 tons of cargo lifted, 6,294 takeoffsflandings from ATU ships, 262,000 lbs of mail de- livered within the amphibious objective area, and 71 patients being medevac'd.

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 . . . 165 V , , ...W , ,Q :A afar om 1.4 sxg, 4 3 . .
