No other carrier in the history of the United States Navy, or any other navy, evokes the emotion and imagery of USS Enterprise (CVN 65). Enterprise is the world ' s most fa- mous combat-ready warship. Its reputation is based on a proud record encompassing world diplomacy, deterrence and engaging the enemy when required. Our mission: Keep international waters free for all nations. In carrying out that mission, no other warship is as capable, flexible or powerful. By launching and recovering air- craft from the embarked air wing, an impressive array of weapons can be employed for defense, long and short range attack, anti-submarine warfare, reconnaissance, electronic warfare and battle group projection. Enterprise dominates the sea and air and can project its power far ashore. Enterprise is the world ' s first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier. With eight reactors, the ship can steam in excess of 30 knots with unlimited endurance. Its reactors can gener- ate enough to power to supply a small city the size of Minneapolis. With the ship ' s company, air wing, and the embarked staff of the Enterprise Battle Group, nearly 5,000 men and women call Enterprise home. It ' s literally a floating city with an airport on the roof and all the facilities needed to support so many individuals. Enterprise has living quarters and numerous dining facilities for all the embarked personnel, complete with bake shop and kitchens and refrigerators. There are evapora- tion plants for converting seawater to freshwater, a police force (Master-at-Arms), a laundry, a print shop, retail stores, medical dental clinics, radio television stations, two daily newspapers, machine laboratory calibration and maintenance shops, a fire de- partment, banking (disbursing), barber shops, weather station, sewage plants, a post office and many other necessary support facilities. In addition, there are hundreds of shops, stations and work centers devoted to maintenance, damage control, navigation and the combat missions of Enterprise. But it is more than metal, compartments, electronic equipment and aircraft. What makes Enterprise great, and is the real source of its power, are the men and women who live and work aboard the ship — Sailors from every state and a wide variety of backgrounds and experience. Over 3,000 Sailors make up the 18 separate departments aboard Enterprise. Over 1,800 officers and airmen make up the squadrons of the air wing. Combined, they make the Enterprise Air Wing team the most harmonious, effective and powerful force for peace and deterrence anywhere - people and ship and aircraft - ready to GO, FLY, FIGHT and WIN!

After the Americans captured Fort Ticonderoga May 10, 1775 Benedict Arnold realized he would] not control Lake Champlain until he captured it. Arnold ' s opportunity presented itself when he learned the ship 1 was stationed with the British garrison at St. John ' s on thel Richelieu in Canada. On May 14, he set out from Skenesborou (now Whitehall, New York), surprised and captured the Britisl garrison four days later. He took possession of the sloop and sailed it south to Crown Point. Renamed Enterprise, it fought against the British at the battle of Valcour Island as part of Arnold ' s fleet, then withdrew tc Ticonderoga to help obstruct the British advance for a year. Its service ended on July 7, 1777 when it was beached and burned to prevent it from falling into the hands of the enemy fcscto feto. Hov ittskes lis onto The fourth Enterprise was also a schooner and was commis- sioned on Dec. 15, 1831. It was 88 feet long with a 23 foot beam; armed with ten 24-9 pound guns, and manned by nine officers and 63 men. Enterprise first joined the Brazil Squadron, then made a cruise around the world in 1835-36. After service in South America, it was sold out of the Navy in 1845. The fifth Enterprise entered service March 16, 1877. It wa 185 feet long with a 35 foot beam and 1,375 ton displacement. 1 carried a crew of 195 officers, Sailors and Marines and at 1 2 knot under steam was one of the fastest vessels in the North Atlantic In 1 878, Enterprise surveyed the Amazon and Madeira river in Brazil. The survey took the ship 1 ,300 miles inland. On Jan. 2, 1883 Enterprise sailed from Norfolk to join th Asiatic squadron. During its 38-month transit, it visited Chines treaty-ports, and witnessed the French defeat of the Chinese fleet Enterprise was refitted and sent to the European squadron i 1886. In 1891 it was sent to the U.S. Naval Academy for mid shipmen training. The following year it was assigned to the Mas sachusetts Nautical Training School where, for many years helped teach seamanship to Massachusetts youths. The ship was sold out of the Navy in 1909. . N ' red it 1 1 St EtSOl The second Enterprise was an 8-gun, 25-ton schooner with a w of 60 men. It was commissioned into the Continental Navy 1776 from the state of Maryland. The schooner served chiefly in conveying transports in Chesa- -.. like Bay. However, it was also active in spying Oil enemy ships 1 preventing British tenders and barges from getting supplies m the shores of Maryland and Virginia. It is not known how this ship ' s career ended. - iik kHiild ta. then mlidre i Btfctpl v twtadi In 1799, the third Enterprise was commissioned. It was a 135-ton schooner with 12 6-pounders and 70 officers and men. Enterprise left the Delaware Capes Dec. 17, 1799 on its way to Guadaloupe, where it joined Commodore Thomas Truxtun ' s squadron. While attached to Truxtun ' s squadron during the quasi- war with France, Enterprise recaptured 1 1 American merchant- men and took seven French privateers. Enterprise was again called to action in the Mediterranean during the war with Tripoli (1801-1804). Lt. Stephan Decatur, who gained fame and notoriety after boarding and burning the captured frigate Philadelphia in Tripoli harbor, was an Enterprise commanding officer. This proud ship finished its distinguished service in the Gulf of Mexico where it patrolled against pirates, smugglers and slavers. It was lost at sea on July 9, 1823 in the West Indies. .

It was placed in service at the Second Naval District and per- armed harbor tug duties at Newport, Rhode Island. On Dec. 11, 1917 the patrol craft was shifted to New Bedford Massachusetts for operations inside the breakwaters and was sub- equently transferred to the Bureau of Fisheries on Aug. 2, 1919. madia tveas The " Fighting Gray Lady " was the seventh Enterprise. Its keel was laid in 1934 and it was commissioned May 12, 1938. It was 827 feet long and 114 feet wide at the flight deck. It displaced 25,000 tons and could sustain 33. 6 knots. It was manned by 82 officers and 1447 men, exclusive of its air group. Enterprise was returning to Pearl Harbor when the Japanese attacked. In WWII, Enterprise was flagship for Vice Adm. Halsey and Vice Adm. Spruance. It carried Adm. Spruance in the Battle of Midway and accompanied USS Hornet on the Doolittle raid. It supported landings at Guadalcanal and Tulagi and took part in the battles of Santa-Cruz, the Philippine Sea and Leyte Gulf. Its planes were in on the " Marianas Turkey Shoot " and pioneered night air strike operations aided by radar. The carrier was the most decorated ship of the war. It was decommissioned on Feb. 17, 1947. I • • 1 U tod ::v ,: ' mkU jirtl ' o SBlfcrlikt • 1j,W BR9H H -• jfc r-i — r-t ' . j iSi " fttoi ' .V » Rk fa fiT--..

During commissioning ceremonies held in Norfolk, Secretary of the Navy John B. Connally, Jr., called the ship a worthy successor to the highly decorated seventh Enterprise of World War II fame. In his remarks, Connally said Enterprise " will reign a long, long time as ' queen of the seas. ' " lyOZ, On January 12, Enterprise left Norfolk for a three-month shakedown cruise. When it finished in April, it returned with the highest score ever attained by a new aircraft carrier. Air Wing Six came aboard June 22. In August, Enterprise joined the Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean. Soon after its return in October, Enterprise would be called upon for its first international crisis, the quarantine of Cuba to prevent the Soviet Union from basing ballistic missiles there. The blockade was put in place on October 24, and the first Soviet ship was stopped the next day. On October 28, Khrushchev finally agreed to remove the missiles and dismantle the missile bases in Cuba. lyCkJ During much of this time, Enterprise was with the Sixth Fleet on its second Mediterranean deployment. Iz Cy-t On February 8, Enterprise rei to the Mediterranean briefly for a third On May 1 3, the world ' s first nuclear-powi task force was formed when USS Long B and USS Bainbridge joined Enterprise.

" -.:.. ih .,, :•:: ' ■ • 1 07 11 ream When Congress authorized construction of Enterprise — the d ' s first nuclear-powered super carrier — it was 1954. The con- • was bold and went far beyond anything ever tried before. Even t echnology to be used was new, and in many cases, untried. The giant ship was to be powered by eight nuclear reactors, two •ach of its four propeller shafts. This was a daring undertaking, Wiever before had two nuclear reactors ever been harnessed to- ■lier. As such, when the engineers first started planning the ship ' s ulsion system, they were uncertain how it would work, or even if fm )uld work according to their theories. Under the direction of the Atomic Energy Commission, ghouse Electric Corporation and Newport News Shipbuilding pany were contracted to build a prototype of the ship ' s propul- plant at the Atomic Energy Commission ' s Naval Reactor Testing Won near Idaho Falls, Idaho. I Newport News was responsible for building an exact replica of a .tljon of the ship ' s hull while Westinghouse was designing and con- ifting the reactors. Engineers at both companies worked in con- nsuring each understood the requirements of the other. June, 1958 the keel section of the prototype was laid and in ber, 1958 one reactor of the propulsion plant was tested. The d reactor was installed less than a year later and both were tested ltaneously — they worked perfectly. le construction and testing were taking place in Idaho, the awarded construction of Enterprise to Newport News Shipbuild- ompany. On February 3, 1958 the Big " E ' s " keel was laid. During the construction , the shipyard faced several challenges and problems. The first of which was the construction of a special dry dock, an engineering feat in itself, to house the 90,000-ton super carrier. Aircraft elevators were another problem — their massive size turned out to be bigger than the doors to the building they were constructed in. The elevators had to be cut in half and reconstructed at the dry dock. Other problems involved moving large sub-assemblies, some of which weighed more than 1 00 tons, from their building sheds to the dry dock. Structures for each of the ship ' s 3,612 compartments were built off the ship. Materials used by the shipyard included 60,923 tons of steel, 1,507 tons of aluminum; 230 miles of pipe and tubing; and 1,700 tons of one-quarter-inch welding rods. The materials were sup- plied from more than 800 companies. Nine hundred shipyard en- gineers and designers created the ship on paper and if the millions of blueprints they created were laid end-to-end, they would stretch 2,400 miles, or from Miami to Los Angeles. Three years and nine months after the keel was laid, Enter- prise left the shipyard for six days of Builder ' s and Navy ' s Pre- Acceptance trials. The new super carrier ' s performance during the trials surpassed the Navy ' s most optimistic expectations. Enterprise, the longest, tallest, heaviest and mightiest war- ship on the seas, broke all previous records for speed when it ex- ceeded 40 miles-per-hour during initial trials. Its escort during the trials, destroyer Laffey, sent this message, :Subject: Speed Tri- als. 1. You win the race. 2. Our wet hats are off to a real thorough- bred. " When the Big " E " returned to port, the Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral George W. Anderson, Jr., stated enthusiasti- cally, " I think we ' ve hit the jackpot.

Three days later tragedy struck when a Zuni rocket accidentally exploded on the flight deck. The ensuing fire and explosions killed 28 men, injured hundreds more, destroyed 15 aircraft and left horrendous holes in the flight deck. Enterprise returned to Pearl Harbor for extensive repairs.

En- terprise was 70 miles south of Hawaii going through an Opera- tional Readiness Inspection, similar to REFTRAand ATA. At 8: 15 several men started working their way to their general quarters stations for an anticipated drill. What they did not anticipate was that in five minutes they would be involved in the real thing — fighting for their lives and the ship ' s survival. At 8:19, Tuesday, January 14, 1969 the ship ' s IMC (main in- tercom system) called away, " Fire, Fire, Fire on the flight deck! This is not a drill! This is not a drill! " The initial explosion and fire was caused by hot air exhaust " T from a jet starter cart which overheated a Zuni air-to-ground re attached to an F-4 Phantom. The aircraft on the flight deck were being readied to launch bombing exercise on Kahoolawe. As such, most of the aircraft loaded down with ordnance. When the first explosion occurred, Enterprise was in a port in preparation for launch. Captain Kent L. Lee, commanding off : immediately ordered the turn be continued. This manuever kq 18-knot wind blowing the flames aft, away from aircraft and land. Chief Warrant Officer Jim Helton was one of the men woi topside when the rocket exploded. " I was walking aft on the i deck, " he said. " Suddenly, a fire ball went off in front of me. " Helton and several others immediately retrieved fire hose: helped rescue injured men from the spreading fire. A series of eight explosions shook the ship between 8:22 and Helton and the others fighting the fire were knocked to the deck eral times, yet got back to their feet to battle the blaze. One sailor who worked in the island wrote home, " The guys f ing that fire had more guts than anything I have ever seen. B( were going off and they still kept pushing those damn hoses in frc themselves and dragging guys out. " Below the flight deck the fire ravaged several compartments crewmember described the unbelievable damage. " Some of the things back there were unreal. It ' s hard to be " what fire can do.

Enterprise returned to Alameda in July and departed once again for its birthplace, Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Company. 1-7 ZU Enterprise remained at the shipyard for overhaul and refueling the entire year. 1971 Enterprise completed its sea trials in January and departed the Norfolk area en route to its homeport, Alameda. In June, Enterprise arrived at Subic Bay on its fifth WESTPAC. Later that month it was on station in the Gulf of Tonkin. After a six-day port visit to Singapore in September, Enter- prise and Bainbridge transited into the Indian Ocean and conducted extensive training operations. In October the Big " E " visited Subic Bay and returned to the Gulf of Tonkin. On Dec. 10, Enterprise was ordered to proceed to the Malacca Straits to await further orders. There, it was joined by several destroyers and an LHA, forming Contingency Force, Seventh Fleet. Soon after forming up, the ships proceeded into the Indian Ocean as a result of the Indo-Pakistan War which began a few days earlier. 1972 On Feb. 12, Enterprise returnee to Alameda ending an eight month deplo) ment.

" On April 18, 1988 Enterprise was called upon to participate in " Operation Praying Mantis, " a retaliatory response against Iran. A few days earlier, Iran had laid mines in the Persian Gulf and on April 14, the USS Samuel B. Roberts (FFG 58) struck one of the mines causing severe damage to the ship and injuring 10 men. Operation Praying Mantis involved the destruction of two Iranian offshore oil platforms by naval gunfire. Enterprise and C VW- 1 1 were called upon to provide air cover for the operation. The oil platforms, which were used by Iran to direct gun boat attacks in the Gulf, were knocked out as planned. But during the operation, USS Wainwright and USS Simson were attacked by an Iranian Kaman PTG (fast patrol missile boat). Wainwright sunk the PTG. Shortly thereafter, at 3:21 p.m., Enterprise aircraft en- gaged three boghammers, sinking one and disabling another. One hour later a Green Lizard A-6E located an Iranian frigate, the Sahand. The Sahand shot an SA7 missile and antiaircraft fire at the aircraft. The Sahand was subsequently sunk. At 5:40 p.m., another Iranian frigate, the Sabalon, fired at one j of our aircraft and the ship was immediately attacked. The A-6] placed a laser-guided bomb directly amidship. The FFG was left dead in the water, and down at the stern. It was later seen being j towed towards Bandar Abbas with a five foot hole in the center of ! the ship, one and a half feet above the waterline. By the end of the day, Iranian naval forces were suffering from a decisive defeat in which they lost two gun boats, a PTG and an FFG, with another severly damaged.

The Wing participated in major Fleet exercises prior to World War II. Throughout the war, Air Wing THREE served on board USS Saratoga (CV 3), USS Yorktown (CV 5) and USS En- terprise (CV 6), participating in actions in the Pacific the- ater, including battles at Midway, Guadalcanal, Philippine Sea and Iwo Jima. CVG 3 flew strikes in Korea from October 1950 to January 1951. In 1962, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, CVG 3 squadrons were dispersed among fleet carriers and bases in southern Florida, poised for instant attack. On Dec. 20, 1963, CVG 3 became CVW 3, Attack Air Wing THREE. In April 1972, CVW 3 Saratoga sailed on an 1 1 -month deployment during which CVW 3 flew strikes against North Vietnamese targets. Following its 16th Mediterranean deployment, CVW 3 joined USS John F. Kennedy (CV 67), making their first deployment together to the Mediterranean Sea and Indian Ocean, returning in July 1982. January 1983 saw CVW 3 and the Kennedy again in the Mediterranean. The Air Wing ' s capability was tested as they steamed towards the Middle East, participating in the December air strikes into Lebanon. CVW 3 and Kennedy returned to the United States in May 1984 and completed a Caribbean cruise that summer. CVW 3 changed homeports in 1985, moving north to its present location at NAS Oceana, Va. CVW 3 deployed again to the Mediterranean in Au- gust 1988. During Jan. 4, 1989 operations in international waters, two CVW 3 F-14 Tomcats destroyed two Libyan Mig-23 Floggers. On Aug. 10, 1 990, CVW 3 and JFK were given notice to deploy Aug. 15. CVW 3 and JFK deployed to the Red Sea in support of Operation Desert Shield. Coalition air strikes involving CVW 3 began Jan. 17, 1 99 1 . CVW 3 was the first naval air wing involved in the Gulf War when it conducted a night strike on Baghdad. The CVW 3 JFK team delivered over 3,795,000 pounds of ordnance and flew 2,895 sorties. Carrier Air Wing THREE completed its 2 1 st Mediter- ranean cruise from October 1992 to April 1993, once again on the JFK. During the deployment the Air Wing flew moni- tor missions in support of humanitarian relief air drops into Bosnia-Herzegovina. In July, the Air Wing transferred from the operational command of Commander, Carrier Group TWO to Com- mander, Cruiser Destroyer Group EIGHT. The composition changed once again April 1 , when Fighter Squadron 14 was transferred to the operational con- trol of Commander Naval Air Force, U.S. Atlantic Fleet. In 1994 the Air Wing embarked in USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69). During the cruise, missions were flown in sup- port of operations " Deny Flight " in Bosnia-Herzegovina and " Southern Watch " in the skies over Iraq. In March of 1996 VMFA 3 12 joined the Air Wing as the third F A- 1 8 Hornet squadron, and the Air Wing joined with USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71). On Nov. 25, 1996 the Air Wing left for its 23rd Mediterranean deploy- ment. It included operations in " Deliberate Guard " over Bosnia and " Southern Watch " in Iraq. Following its return May 22, 1997 CVW 3 chopped to operational control of CCDG- 1 2 and Enterprise Battlegroup.

An envi- ronment already legendary for its incredible, unforgiving intensity becomes even more supercharged, more attuned to each individual function, more driven by sheer adrenaline and professional tenacity. It is a wholesale reaction, explod- ing from the upper echelons of the chain of command, pour- ing like molten lava down to the deckplates, consuming vir- tually every Sailor and Marine between the two extremes. America punched 9-1-1 on its cell phone Dec. 16, 1998 and the USS Enterprise (CVN 65) Battle Group and Carrier Air Wing THREE (CVW 3) responded emphatically with Operation Desert Fox, the choreographed aerial devastation of military targets located throughout the shifting sands of Iraq. For three days, Rear Adm. Cutler Dawson, Commander of the Enterprise Battle Group, Capt. Marty Chanik, Com- manding Officer of USS Enterprise, and Capt. Tom Hagen, Commander, CVW-3, pooled their people and hardware to plow Saddam Hussein ' s backyard with a punishing mix of Tomahawk cruise missiles and laser-guided bombs. No planes were lost and the ordnance-on-target percentage was unprecedented in the explosive 3-D endorsement of carrier • • Sometimes in the Navy, " all-hands effort " is idealist! ny eloquence; an anachronism applied wishfully to field da) and FOD walkdowns. " All hands, " however, was exact! ||, ; how Team Enterprise handled Desert Fox, not a single pc son shy of giving 1 00 percent to the cause. Every perfc step in the sequence, from ordies building bombs to aviato dropping them, was a reflection of the integration betwa battle group, ship and air wing, department and divisio crewmember and shipmate. When an aircraft banged off tl front end on any one of nearly 300 sorties, 5,000 peop !1Itr . were truly responsible for getting it in the air. As the initial wave of Tomahawks from the sea was dea , ing its destructive blow late Dec. 16, aircraft from CVW f% heavy with smart bombs dangling from their wings, we. i being spotted on Big E ' s catapults. Vulture ' s Row becan seats on the 50-yard line, hundreds and hundreds i a[ crewmembers crammed along the 0-1 1 rails hungry for glimpse of history in the making. Absolute darkness domj nated the Arabian Gulf sky, its moon replaced first by tli , occasional flash of a Tomahawk launch down range on tl| 106 ■nd in threat- m, anall- ecame orizon, and eventually by the brilliant glow of full after- urners kicking aircraft in the ass to get them airborne. The balcony emptied as the first 33 aircraft completed leir launch. Spectators dispersed to their respective work enters to catch the strike results live on CNN. With few ceptions, every television screen on the ship was tuned to hristiane Amanpour standing in the familiar green lumi- sscence of Baghdad through a night-vision camera, her roadcast punctuated by the desperate pops and flashes of iti-aircraft artillery searching the night. Even as she pro- aimed relative quiet, aircraft were screaming inbound. With a ready deck aft, the landing area clear and a size- ole crowd gathered again atop the island, aircraft returned • Enterprise one-by-one, most crashing onto the steel roof onsiderably lighter and sleeker than when they left a few Durs earlier. Plane captains took care of the flying ma- rines, and pilots reviewed impressive bomb hit assessment pes of targets disintegrating in rising clouds of smoke and nbble. Sea stories, too, made the rounds; bombs through front doors, triple-A coming up from th ening bursts, Tomcats and Hornets on the Navy first night . . . And so Desert Fox went. Big E and ' nocturnal, going to work in the absence of light. The mess decks and wardrooms served chow around the clock, and business hours throughout the ship were expanded. By day, red shirts moved nearly 350,000 pounds of explosive might from the magazines to the flight deck, most of it personal- ized with handwritten messages from crewmembers before hanging from a bomb rack. By night, yellow shirts directed aircraft to their proper spots and finally in a heated rush off the bow and angle deck. With each new sunrise, the final strike sorties returned from Iraq and slammed down on the non-skid in the scream- ing, banging, deafening perfection of arrested landings. As fliers retreated to serenity and sanctuary below, mechs moved topside into the fantastic morning radiance, crawling over aircraft and digging into their hydraulic, electronic, mechani- cal guts to prep them for the next assault. Four-and-a-half acres of sovereign U.S. flatland, zip code 65, slicing through the hot Arabian Gulf, dotted with the swirling colors from a box of Crayolas and flashes of sun glinting off sparkling canopies. Daylight meant relative silence on Big E, the proverbial calm before the storm, interrupted occasionally by engine maintenance turns and amplified, crackling 5MC advice from the Aircraft Handler. Even in chocked and chained tranquility, though, the flight deck sizzled with the hum of raw energy. Ragin ' Bulls, Gunslingers, Checkerboards, Swordsmen, Zappers, Seahawks, Checkmates, Dusty Dogs, and Ravens, allied by their AC tailcode and Battle Axe an- cestry, lined up inches from one another and ready to run the ball right up the middle ... the premier strike contingent in the region . . free from diplomatic sensitivities and inti- mately familiar with the terrain. Sunset signaled the emergence of a powerful force ris- ing from its slumber. Ready rooms returned to life with mission briefs and the flight deck once again became the dance floor for the intricate waltz of aircraft movement. And like clockwork, the war face was on, ship and air wing ready to rumble. Aviators strapped in cockpits on top of tons of bombs, catching a two-second shuttle ride to the sky and points beyond. From Southern Watch to Desert Fox instantly. For three days, Team Enterprise played the lead role on the world stage, adding another illustrious chapter to the heritage of the world ' s most famous warship and demon- strating the awesome autonomous firepower of a carrier battle group and its air wing. The war machines, cold steel and plastic and composite alloys welded and wired together, per- formed as advertised, but in the end, it was warriors people - pure and simple, that put bang on the beach. It was the same people that do it every other day, quietly, when the world and the networks are not watching. 107 108 109 M 1 Ik r no k vM%hi A ?mm • y li« % l ON PLANS ' f T PLEAS INPROGRE I i ■y jfc.UViAJ !- 111 ig a m ii i i " A . ifti Pr ; », ' • mm rt»W Ii • 112 • ' ■. ■ 2 c5f n| It f 1 r rjjjjjjj ' __ tBjfi • ,.-— - »r E»»w, iu I 1 1 :i ' ir- l iB m Nm . m 1 1 Ig 1 r : 1 B -JSi ' B X .

Charles Moore, Commander, Central Com- mand 125 SEOTEF HS© , Team Enterprise followed up three days of light- ning strikes in Operation Desert Fox with a whirlwind three-hour visit by Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen and an entourage of dignitaries and USO entertainers. The Secretary was accompanied by his wife Mrs. Janet S. Cohen, along with Senator Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii) and Representative John P. Murtha (D-Penn.). Also flying aboard were Gen. Anthony Zinni, USMC, Commander-in-Chief, U.S. Central Command, Lt. Gen. James L. Jones, USMC, the Secretary ' s Senior Military Assistant and Vice Adm. William Moore, Com- mander, Fifth Fleet. " Thank you for your dedication, patriotism and professionalism, " Cohen said to thousands of ship ' s crew and Carrier Air Wing THREE Sailors and Marines on the Big E ' s flight deck. " The way you carried out the opera- tion against Saddam Hussein was just fantastic! We could not have carried this out without the dedication and professionalism you all exhibited day in and day out. When anyone wants to know why we are 1, they need only to take a look out here at your faces. We can give you the equipment and the aircraft, but it ' s you that makes us successful. " A renowned entertainer in her own right, Mrs. Cohen then introduced a one-hour holiday United Servicemen ' s Organization show. As Enterprise escort USS Gettysburg (CG 64) pulled up close alongside and manned their rails to starboard, four-time Grammy Award winner Mary Chapin Carpenter and David Ball, the country-singing son of former Secretary of the Navy William Ball, put on a show followed by hit songwriter and singer Carole King. The Secretary and audience danced to " Locomotion " and stood silently for " You ' ve Got a Friend. " It was a sharp contrast to the seriousness of the past week, when the same deck launched strikes against Iraq. While on board, the Secretary and his wife joined a representative from each service in Central Command — a Sailor, Marine, Soldier and Airman - for a live tele- phone conference call to their families and media repre- sentatives back in the States. The visitors also dined with Sailors on the Aft Mess Decks. 126 o»n right Mrs. Enterprise escort taingsiiie j GnmmyAfl M Ball the , : -he Na by feat soog Titet p ' adadience iiadyfor " Vou " ve ,_forabvetele- m ¥ V r-- " ■ " 129 Cbrtetnu i M v.. ■Am « 131 m, p6UHtU £ P6nf n 132 Oh? tAc i 133 THE SEQUAL 135 n tottiimA 137 It was like sailing into a postcard when Enterprise arrived in Souda Bay, Crete Jan. 4 -- 92,000 tons of haze gray tiny against stunning, snow-capped mountain ranges climbing skyward off the how.

Team Enterprise arrived at the crossroads of the Turkish Riviera Jan. 14 and spent four days enjoying a mixture of tradi- tional and contemporary pleasures. A summer hot spot for German and Ital- ian tourists, Antalva is hundreds of miles of beaches, thousands of years of history, and an exciting blend of European and Middle Eastern delights. Big E dropped anchor about a mile off the jagged shore, and Antalya shook off its winter weariness and bristled with life for the 5,000 visitors. The first stop for many was the downtown shopping district, featuring busy, narrow streets and varieties of leather goods, fine jewelry, and handcrafted Turkish wares. J, I 148 Ji I i om there, ) «. niilil ' iil Kalciei Marina and historic landmarks of the Romans, Byzantines, and Ottoman Umpire in the old quarter were a short walk away. The harbor district, ringed by towering ancient walls and accentuated with old sailing ships and modern vessels, came alive each night as crewmembers frequented Turkish restaurants, alleyway clubs and waterfront cafes. Sloping cobblestone streets, wooden houses, and streetside vendors contributed to sightseeing experience. Outside the modern hustle and bustle, crewmembers visited ruins from the Roman- Greek cities at Phaselis, Perge, and Termessos. Aspendos, the best p reserved Roman amphitheater in the world, seats 15,000 people and is still used for perfor- mances today. Some ventured to the Antalya Archaeological Museum, where ancient artifacts tell the story of Turkey ' s rich history. Horseback riding in the Duzlercami Pine Forest, Whitewater rafting down the Koprulu River, golfing at the Gloria Golf Resort and scuba diving among reefs, a shipwreck and underwater caves were a few alternative entertainment options. Relaxing at one of the four- and five-star beachfront hotels was a popular attraction, too, at off-season rates. T ' - ,y r .

' 1 I I 153 155 LWQRH USS Enterprise (CVN 65) and Carrier Air Wing THREE (CVW 3) reached the mid-point of their historic 1998-99 Mediterranean Sea Arabian Gulf Deployment Feb. 5, the same day they completed a port visit to Italy ' s ma- jestic Tuscany region. Big E anchored off Livorno, Italy Jan. 27, giving more than 5,000 Sailors and Marines a seaside starting poin t to set out across the celebrated Italian countryside. Despite some rough sea states during the first day, the weather cleared and boating became a smooth 30-minute ride ashore. From Rome and Venice to Florence and Pisa, crewmembers explored museums and monuments, cathe- drals and cafes, restaurants, ruins and the Renaissance. With so much history in a relatively small area, Sailors and Marines were able to hit most of the sites between duty days, traveling by train and bus to their destinations. The ship ' s Special Services office facilitated the process, lining up transportation and guided tours to suit all interests. The parade to the beach began in darkness at 5 a.m. each day and ended around midnight when weary sightseers returned from their journeys abroad. In the spirit of jointness, many Sailors visited Camp Darby, a U.S. Army post just a few klicks down the road from Fleet Landing, to stock up on essentials from the base ex- change and to enjoy a variety of recreational facilities. Along with the Vatican and Colosseum in Rome, the art and architecture of Florence, the canals of Venice, the leaning tower in Pisa and skiing in the Alps, Team Enterprise en- joyed the scenic view, shopping, food and the hospitality of the Italian people. 161 mi m k jWP.

Yes and no was ulti- mately the answer. Even before Big E set the underway watch in Livorno, Italy, there were many doubts about Team Enterprise ' s visit to the French Riviera, fueled by the ongoing crisis in the Yugoslavian province of Kosovo. As the scheduled date for the stop neared, the odds of crewmembers getting to enjoy the lavish oceanfront community shifted continu- ously in direct relation to developments taking place at Balkan peace talks in Rambouillet, France. Crewmembers stayed tuned to CNN, analyzing every Christianne Aman pour phrase for some subtle clue to the great liberty mystery. Finally, a definitive " maiBfteent the X to enjoy the Mfe taking nbouiilel MdloCNN, ipour advance detachment ashore Feb. 17. Two tenuous days later, Enterprise crawled over the Mediterranean horizon into the Cannes sea view, just a thousand yards from all the wonders of France. " Liberty call, liberty call ...

Chanik told Sailors and Ma- rines that Big E was getting underway in 24 hours, headed for the Adriatic Sea at 25 knots an hour. The chain of command and duty section scrambled to effect the recall bill, passing the word to shipmates beach that Enterprise was ordered back to sea even as guests from Cannes streamed on board for an Evening Reception. Many crewmembers enjoyed their one night on the town but excursions to the heart of France were put on indefinite hold. Special Services initiated Refundex Cannes ' 99. At 4 p.m. on Feb. 20, the ship shifted colors and began moving east, only 32 hours after the anchor splashed down, and by the time crewmembers crawled out of their racks Feb. 22, Big E was on station in the Adriatic Sea, bringing the world ' s most formidable and recently-tested strike force to NATO ' s table. 179 180 • ' 9 ' H ii ± uk w II!

The ship and air wing stopped in Livorno, Italy earlier in the deploy- ment and a second trip to Italy was a welcome opportunity for many crewmembers. Some Sailors stayed in Trieste, sampling the many flavors of countless restaurants and cafes located throughout the city, originally an outpost of the Roman Empire. Others contin- ued past the city limits to ski in Piancavallo, visit the former Yugoslavian republic of Slovenia, or to travel to Venice. Regardless of the choice of recreation, crewmembers made the most of their time in port and their break from the underway routine. 191 192 JBHB T 9 i w dr 194 195 196 J ■» 198 199 203 Bi« Mvisici 204 205 Even with their home office only 100 yards deployment to enjoy some " Sand Box " liberty, away, Team Enterprise put aside the rigors of Within an area of about three football fields.

His family immigrated to Canada in 1954 where he was raised in Toronto, Ontario. He subsequently immigrated to the United States in January, 1967, voluntarily enlisting in the United States Army. He served three years, highlighted by two consecutive combat tours in Vietnam with the 101st Airborne Division (SCREAMING EAGLES). Staff Sergeant Reade was honorably discharged in Sep- tember 1969. Cap tain Reade graduated from Florida State University in 1974, receiving his commission through the AVROC program. He was desig- nated a Naval Aviator in March, 1976. His first fleet tour was with the " DIAMONDCUTTERS " of VS-30 where he was part of the initial cadre transitioning the squadron to the S-3A Viking. Choosing the training command next, he served as an Instructor with the " SABERHAWKS " of VT-86 at Pensacola, Florida. His shore tour was willingly cut short by acceptance for transition to the I- -14 Tomcat At the mature age of thirty-three, Captain Reade transitioned to the F-14A Tomcat with VF-101, the East Coast FRS. The next three years included two deployments with the " STARFIGHTERS " of VF- 33. A subsequent two-year tour as an Instructor with VF-101 enhanced his experience in the aircraft and the community. He returned to the Fleet with the VF-11 " RED RffPERS " serving as Administrative Of- ficer and Maintenance Officer. Captain Reade was next chosen to be Operations Officer for the Commander, Tactical Wings Atlantic. Duri ng this tour, he screened for Command. Fate returned him to the VF-33 " STARFIGHTERS " and the needs of the Navy allowed him to deploy with the Squadron as the Prospective Executive Officer (PXO) during Operation Desert Storm. He assumed Command in April, 1992, on station in the Arabian Gulf. His greatest and ill-fated challenge was to coordinate the process that resulted in the decommissioning of the Squadron that had been such an important part of his profession. Life continued as Air Boss in USS INDEPENDENCE (CV-62) for- ward deployed in Yokosuka, Japan. That most gratifying task was re- warded with orders to the National War College in Washington, DC. Captain Reade returned to sea duty as Operations Officer and even- tually Chief of Staff for Commander, Carrier Group EIGHT home ported in Norfolk, Virginia. He is presently serving as Chief of Staff for Commander, Cruiser Destroyer Group TWELVE deployed on USS ENTERPRISE (CVN- 65). He has experienced nine deployments on USS FORRES TAL (CV- 59), USS AMERICA (CV-66), USS INDEPENDENCE (CV-62), and USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT (CV-71). He has accumulated over 4700 flight hours and 870 carrier landings. His awards include the Silver Star, seven Bronze Stars (three with Combat " V " ), two Purple Hearts, two Meritorious Service Medals, three Air Medals, six Navy Commendation Medals (two with Combat " V " ), the Combat Action Ribbon and numerous other awards and citations. He holds a B.S. in Government and an M.S. in National Security Strategy. 260 I Senior Staff Enlisted Advisor, Enterprise Battle Group : EWCS(SW AW) Claude E.

They serve as Big E ' s critical organic support line necessary to keep the sophisticated air- craft of Carrier Air Wing THREE in a high state ol readiness during intensive flight operations. The AIMD team consists of eight officers, 25 chiel petty officers and more than 400 highly skilled su- pervisors and technicians, including 190 SEAOPDE1 Sailors and Marines who joined Team Enterprise when the ship got underway. Made up of four divi- sions (53 individual work centers and over 143 spaces), Big E ' s " I-level " experts had full repair ca pability for more than 10,000 individual aeronauti cal components ranging from jet engine to micro miniature avionic repairs. During the Mediterranean Sea Arabian Gulf De ployment, AIMD provided maximum support not onh to the nine squadrons of CVW-3 and Enterprise, bu also to the entire Enterprise Battle Group, enablim each of them to remain fully mission capable thi entire cruise. Along the way, AIMD achieved sev eral milestones including preparing more thai 25,000 components for installation. Teamwork is the cornerstone for the success ii any aircraft carrier; without teamwork, Enterpris would not be a treasured national asset. The AIMI can proudly say they have done their share to brim Enterprise to its current state; a combat-proven mis sion capable aircraft carrier, capable of going any where in the world to protect the national interes of the United States. 276 f J vMBWllJfc Ml f I - 277 The mission of AIMD ' s IM- 1 Division is providing superior Aviation Intermediate Mainte- B nance (IMA) repair coordina- tion, conformance to specifica- tions and procedural standards, and external liaison in support of AIMD ' s mission of " maximum readiness for CAG- 3 and Enterprise Battlegroup.

In a dazzling microminiature world of circuit boards, multi-colored wires, and computer chips , IM-3 techni- cians keep the ship, air wing, and battle group on the cutting edge of technology with refined skills and a keen eye. In the Tunnel, avionics experts use test boards, boxes and benches to put suspect electronic components through their paces in a controlled environment. Many times, a tape told the tale of an aircraft ' s woes when viewed by a Big E IM-3 crewmember. The division also makes sure armament systems re- main lethally accurate and smooth operating, handling everything from 20MM aircraft guns to complex Sidewinder missile launch ers and fire control radars. Their handiwork was on display during Operation Desert Fox when hardware performed nearly flawlessly. The Calibration Lab is another important function of IM-3, providing precision measurement services to all variety of Team Enterprise members. When you ' re deal- ing with nuclear power, cruise missiles and Mach 2 air- craft, the margin for error is virtually invisible. The Cal lab ensures Big E stays within the margin.

This large, dynamic team, in addition to conduct] launch and recovery operations, exercises VFR control airborne aircraft, and provides services and facilities j the maintenance and fueling of aircraft. Whether it ' s j Air Boss sitting in his Pri-Fly chair high up on the level or a " grape " working with JP-5 deep down in ship ' s hull, Big E relies on teamwork and coordination fr] the Air Department to keep up the intensity and perfect of cyclic flight ops. These efforts enable embarked squadrons and deta ments to effectively conduct air operations in the appli tion of their military potential. Additionally and of eq importance is the damage control role of aircraft crash fighting on the hangar and flight decks. Highly visible in their multi-colored flight deck jerse members of the Air Department are renowned for work 18-20 hour work days to meet the demanding and s tained missions of carrier aviation. In the bitter cold of wintertime northern Mediterranean Sea or on a sun-bai flight deck in the summertime Arabian Gulf, their dedi; tion and work ethic is equally inspiring. During JTG 99-1, by performing over 20,000 eqt ment maintenance actions, completing over 35,000 i craft moves, and pumping over 13 million gallons of fuel, Air Department successfully executed 9,000 sorts including over 300 during Operation Desert Fox.

In addition, V-4 " Grapes " man two pump rooms, provide crews on the flight and hangar decks for fueling of aircraft from 23 stations, and store and deliver aviation lube oil for catapults. Fueling crews wear purple jerseys. V-4 is more than a gas station for the air wing, how- ever. Purple shirts provide JP-5 to other ships in the battle group and various fuels and lube oils to other de- partments on the ship. Quality assurance is also a high priority in the division, as evidenced by their meticulous sample testing and analysis procedures that apply to the delivery of million gallons of clean, clear and bright jet fuel to embarked airwing during extensive flight opera- tions. Without the top-to-bottom efforts of V-4, much of the battle group would come to a screeching halt because they ran out of gas.

Deck is the backbone of the seagoing opera- tions, common to all ships. In fact, deck department and hardworking Boatswain ' s Mates have been in the Navy since man first ventured out upon the sea in sailing ships. A Boatswain ' s Mate ' s duties are similar on most ships, but aboard Enterprise they tend to be bigger and heavier and more complex. Still, the pro-, fessionals remain undeterred. We own and operate the ship ' s anchors, boats underway replenishment stations, brows, accommo- dation ladders and sail loft. Our spaces include the forecastle, the fantail, and sponsons and quarter decks, over 180 internal spaces and the entire ship ' s sides (130,000 square feet of freeboard) which are continuously exposed to the elements. Guided by the First Lieutenant, Deck Department is made up of Enterprise ' s true seamanship experts We stand our watches on the bridge, quarterdeck anc fantail as Lookout, Lee Helmsman, Helmsman Aftsteering Helmsman, Master Helmsman, anc Boatswain ' s Mate of the Watch. We are the eyes o the ship, we steer the straight course and we earn out the Plan of the Day, making all announcement: on the 1-MC. We are the boat coxswain, the mooring line han dlers and the spray painters. We bring aboard tin food, aircraft fuel, ammunition and essential ship ' ; supplies from supply ships at sea. We work with can vas, herculite, wire and line in support of our dail ' seamanship tasks or to create ornamental and cer emonial works of art. From chipping and grinding on decks to rescuing individuals at sea, Deck Department continuous! ' strives to make Enterprise look its best in both physi cal appearance and in the professional performance of its seamanship evolutions.

Massive steering gears power the rudders to keep us on a true course.

Engineering Department ' s Electrical Division (E Division) is responsible for meeting the vast electrical needs of this floating city. They gener- ate and distribute the power required to energize 90,000 tons of steel into a floating fighting machine. Should motors, circuit breakers or other components fail, they are quickly rewound, rebuilt or otherwise restored to peak op- erating condition. Our electricians also maintain several elevators that efficiently move our pilots, Commanding Officer and embarked staff members to the flight deck and beyond! The flight deck lighting shop ensures that naviga- tion and aviation lighting systems remain a welcome bea- con to other ships as well as returning pilots. E Division also plays a role in navigation with their ex- pertise in maintaining the ship ' s gyrocompasses and many mission critical communications circuits.

Steam turbines also keep generators rolling to power lights and other vital electrical loads. Water water everywhere but nary a drop to drink. Thanks to Machinery Division, that is not true on Enterprise. They are responsible for the production and distribution of all drinking water, called potable water as well as the immense quantity of make- up water required by the steam plants. The distilling units produce 350,000 gallons of water each day that gets delivered to heads, work spaces and storage tanks from keel to mast arid bow to stern. A new technology oily waste separation system ensures that every bit of oil is recovered from bilge water to help preserve the oceans around us. M-Division also owns the boiler sys- tem that supplies heating and service steam shipwide. Additionally, Machinery Division provides high and low pressure air to numerous loads throughout the ship.

Engineering Department ' s Repair Division plans, supervises, and performs a variety of shipboard tasks necessary for making, install- ing and repairing the ship ' s structure and sprawling piping systems. Considering Enterprise ' s size, age, and complexity, this task is challenging and everchanging. Operating the waste holding and plumb- ing system for a city of 5000 is one of Repair Divisions vital missions. The Head Habitability Team never rests, and charges considerably less than the neighborhood plumber would if he had to come on board. This division employs welders, brazers, sheet metal workers, pipe fit- ters, locksmiths and engravers to make or fix just about anything. R-Division is a big reason Big E can say it is self-sustaining. The Planning and Estimating team evalu J ates and plans difficult repairs not just for Big " E " but also for other battlegroup ships. Repair Division often gets a chance to share it ' s welding expertise by dispatch- ing technicians to other ships ensuring the ENTERPRISE battle group is always Ready on Arrival!

A T " r LCDR Morley Assistant Navigator SMCS Byrd Leading Chief Petty Officer On a dark night hundreds of miles from the ne; ' est land, Enterprise slices through the sea, confide i that its position is known with pinpoint accurac , Relying on satellites, stars, lights and beacons, tl j Quartermasters take great pride in determining tl 1 position of Enterprise, whether in the open ocean, tl 1 littorals, or restricted waters. High above all on Enterprise, the Signalmen cor municate visually with other ships using flashing ligr flag hoist, and semaphore. These are the most effe tive forms of communication when at close range ai i , security of transmissions is essential. They also mai ij tain an ever vigilant watch over Enterprise, ensurir t no ship approaches without intentions and identi known. The term " navigation " is derived from the Lat word " navis " , meaning ship, and " agere " , meanii to direct. Thus, navigation is the process of directir ship ' s movement. The Navigation Dept has succes fully accomplished this process, directing Enterp across the Atlantic, throughout the Mediterranean at Adriatic Seas, through the Suez Canal and Red Sea the Arabian Gulf, and back. The men and women of the Navigation Dept e sured this national asset called Enterprise was e actly where it needed to be, projecting power ashor as directed by our nation ' s leaders. 444 QMCS Cochran QM1 Martinsen SMI Means QM1 Perryman SM2 Goodson QM2 Gorski SM2 Williams SM3 Coles QM3 Fox QM3 Herbert SMSN Loucas QMSN Mose f! !

Mm Enterprise is a warship, built for providing on-tin on-target ordnance delivery. The Operations Depa ment is considered one of the primary choreograph in executing that simply-stated but complex missu calling on each of its divisions to provide a criti piece of the tactical puzzle. Using their compreht sive input and relying on close liason with embark staffs and other ships in the battle group, the depa ment coordinates the offensive and defensi warfighting efforts of the ship and the carrier air w ' n It is all about teamwork. Although Big E is not at war all the time, Ope tions still stays busy preparing for routine traini missions and planning for a variety of other evo tions, including port calls, underway replenishmer joint exercises and just about every other shipbo; I function. The more familiar moniker of the depe ment is Ops and their specific tasks include sched ing and executing flight operations, collecting e distributing tactical data, gathering intelligence, i providing photographic and n teorological services. Like all other Big E depa ments, Ops takes great pride in professional diversity and con bution to Enterprise ' s overall s cess. When the ship has a n sion, Ops can be found on the le ing edge.

Because weather plays a significant part in operations, the collec- tive expertise of OA ' s Aerographer ' s Mates is a valued com- modity by all hands on Enterprise. From strike weather briefs on TV 23 to launching balloons off the fantail, the division attempts to stay one step ahead of Mother Nature. The division ' s real challenge is the mobility of Enter- prise. Personnel must be familiar with weather patterns around the world, able to accurately predict what ' s com- ing next in the Adriatic Sea or the Arabian Gulf. Based on their recommendations, the carrier may relocate to another operating area to avoid inclement weather or change the schedule to take advantage of a sunny day. Safety and readiness are but two of the elements the division must consider. OA uses several resources to compile their forecasts, including weather balloons, radar, and the Internet. They do not throw darts at " a dartboard. 1 HKtiy 7 Vv M 1 J ». 1 AGCS Joern AG1 Fisk AG1 Harris AG2 Benton AG2 Ferrell AG2 Lehmkuhl AG2 Martell AG2 Pollock AG3 Folajaiye AGAN Bradley AGAN Davenport AGAN Newcomer 451 Operations Department ' s Carrier Air Traffic Control Center (CATCC-65) is composed of OC Division which is organized into Air Operations (Air Ops), Carrier Controlled Approach (CCA) and Air Transfer Office (ATO). CATCC, under the direction of the Air Ops Officer, is responsible for the control of aircraft operating within the Carrier Control Area airspace radius of 50 nautical miles around the carrier. CCA is responsible for opera- tional control of aircraft departing the ship and recovery of inbound aircraft after a mission is complete. The degree of control provided by CCA is contingent upon meteorological conditions and time of day. Night or inclement aircraft recoveries demand flawless air traf- fic control skills and meticulous attention to detail to coordinate the aircraft arrival flow, separation and se- quence which result in an aircraft landing each 60 to 80 seconds. The CATCC team on board USS Enterprise was graded by Commander, Naval Atlantic Fleet as " the best CV team " in the fleet and achieved an unprecedented NATOPS writ- ten test score of 97.85%. The immense talent and tech- nical prowess was put to the test during Operation Desert Fox. In those 70 hours, CATCC 65 was directly respon- sible for: the launch and recovery of 269 night sorties, 100% night combat boarding rate on two nights, overall night combat boarding rate of 92.3% and three " per- fect " recoveries. Air Ops has overall responsibility and makes the real- time decisions necessary for safe and efficient aircraft launch and recovery. Just as important, Air Ops is re- sponsible for tracking the status of all airborne aircraft, management of tanker assets, providing aviators with a variety of flight information including airspace restric- tions, divert airfield data, and process flight plans. Dur- ing Operation Desert Fox, 26 aircraft saves were directly related to timely and accurate management of airborne tanker assets. Air Ops accurately recorded over 15,500 sorties, 29,000 flight hours, 22,000 traps and 9,500 traps since commencement of the Intermediate phase of the Inter-Deployment Training Cycle. ATO is responsible of COD VOD logistics flights, co- ordination and processing of mail, cargo and passengers. ATO expeditiously and safely processed 100 tons of cargo, 40 tons of mail and over 5,000 passengers including nu- merous VIPs encompassing everyone from Secretary of Defense, the honorable William Cohen to newly report- ing personnel. CATCC-65 had several outstanding personnel selected for professiona awards. AC1 (AW) James K. Moses was recognized as CINCLANTFLT Air Traffic Controller of the Year and the Air Traffic Controllers Association ' s Military Air Traffic Control Specialist of the Year; Operations 1998 Junior Sailor of the Year was AC2 (AW) Chris A.

OI is part of the Combat Direction Center, heart of Enterprise ' s warfighting ca- pability, manning stations in several modules that con- tribute to offensive and defensive operations. Bathed in the glow of information screens and computer con- soles, OI personnel make decisions that can affect the survival of the ship. Each OI module is responsible for detecting, track- ing, identifying, and when tasked , engaging contacts in their respective areas. Air intercept controllers vec- tor fighter aircraft to their targets. Anti-submarine tac- tical air controllers (ASTACS) control fixed and rotary wing aircraft in the hunt for hostile submarines. Force- over-the-horizon target coordinator (FOTC) watchstanders manage a computer data base that pro- vides a world-wide strategic plot of friendly, neutral, and enemy shipping. The Decision and Display Mod- ule, manned by the Tactical Action Officer (TAO), is where it all comes together. Tactical operations plot (TOP) watch teams assist the Officer of the Deck and TAO in surface contact man- agement and safe navigation of the ship.

Armed with the latest camera and computer technol- ogy, OP focuses on showing the Enterprise story to the world. Each day, the division sends electronic images to the Chief of Information in Washington, D.C., creating a visual archive of Big E ' s exploits from the coast of Vir- ginia to the shadows of Iraq. During Operation Desert Fox, OP ' s talents were on display on the front pages of major publications around the world, virtually instant images of a carrier at war. The Illustrator Draftsmen (DM) aboard Enterprise pro- duce graphic designs, original artwork and illustrations that uniquely capture Navy life aboard ship. They pro- duce images of operations, special evolutions and his- torically significant events as another means of telling the Navy ' s story. Many of their works of acrylics, pen ink, pencil, and airbrush will be combined with the over 10,000 p iece Navy Art Collection of the Naval Historical Center ' s Art Gallery, located at the Washington Navy Yard, Washington, D.C. Through the DM rating the Navy furthers its goals and interests in the documentation of its history through art, managing an unparalleled, visu- ally creative record of itself made available for public viewing. The Lab also shoots feature photos for the ship ' s daily newspaper and several other Navy publications, and runs a professional studio for command portraits. Nearly ev- ery action shot in this cruisebook was taken by one of the division ' s 20 PHs. Finally, OP contributes to the ship ' s intelligence func- tion, processing reconnaissance photos and serving as part of the Snoopy Team.

Hundreds and hundreds of thii happen everyday on Big E, most of which requir helping hand from Supply. From food service for 5,( people and procuring aircraft parts, to payroll mi agement and delivering the mail, they are an intec part of Team Enterprise. The Supply Officer, with input from his princi assistants and division officers manages the ope tion. To meet the demands in the trenches, the i partment has Storekeepers (SK), Aviation Storekei ers (AK), Mess Management Specialists (MS), Shi Servicemen (SH), Disbursing Clerks (DK) and Pos Clerks (PC), along with seve other ratings. The Supply Department is co prised of the following divisio S-l (Stock Control); S-2 (Food S vice); S-2M (Mess Deck); 5 (Sales and Service); S-4 (Disbu ing); S-5 (Wardroom Mess); 5 (Aviation Support); S-8 (Materi. S-9 (Customer Service); S-i ; (Quality Assurance); S-ll (CH Petty Officers ' Mess); S-12 (P Office) and S-13 (Hazardous N terial). 502 tf ' J w 503 SUPPLY ADMIN Supply Admin handles the myriad of administrative tasks of the department, completing the extensive correspon- dence and coordination required to run one of the ship ' s biggest departments.

The eleven Storekeepers Avia- tion Storekeepers in S-l also manage the ship ' s $13 mil- lion dollar annual budget. The job requires hours and hours of meticulous, detailed work balancing invento- ries with financial records and reconciling differences. They must coordinate closely with other Supply divisions who store material for issue to the customer. Stock Con- trol Division also is responsible for determining stock levels of all material stored on board the ship and man- ages reorders and transportation channels to ensure the material arrives and is continuously available. Enter- prise never runs out of material and this is a huge trib- ute to the quality work performed by the dedicated Sail- ors of the Stock Control Division!

The annual Food Service operation exceeds 5 million dollars and provides Ney Award Food Service quality 365 days a year. S-2 prepares over 14,000 thousand portions daily from two general messes. The mission of the Food Service Division is to provide the customer with wholesome, well balanced, and satisfy- ing meals served under exceptionally sanitary conditions in an atmosphere that is conducive to outstanding din- ing. The Division ' s reputation speaks for itself. They received an Honorable Mention from COMNAVAIRLANT for the Captain Edward F. Ney Memorial Award for Food Service Excellence, an overall grade of Outstanding in all areas during the Supply Management Assessment, and performed magnificently in support of Thanksgiving and Christmas meal celebrations as well as command-wide steel beach picnics. During numerous formal command functions the division provided unsurpassed quality ser- vice to host nationals and high-ranking dignitaries. No one can argue that this is one Food Service Operation that rivals any in the Navy today! The division ' s outstanding performance was featured in several prominent news publications during deploy- ment, including Bon Appetit, Dallas Morning News, and Denver Post.

To- gether they operate, maintain and re- pair all assigned guns, gun mounts and associated equip- ment used by the Ship ' s Security Forces to protect " Big E " . Within G-2 resides the " Range Master " . He runs the firing range and teaches personnel how to properly handle and operate the 9MM pistol, M-14 semi-automatic rifle and 12-gauge shotgun. He is responsible for the training and safety oversight of all small arms proficiency. Through extensive cross training, this group of special- ists maintains the underwater explosive torpedoes. These devices are air-launched from both the S-3 anti-subma- rine aircraft and the H-60 helicopter. They are also respon- sible for the correct configuration, storage and movement of the weapons. A large majority of the division ' s man-hours are con- sumed in performing maintenance on the 37-year old sprin- kler systems installed in the 34 ordnance storage maga- zines. These sprinkler systems protect the munitions from excessive heat and fire. During replenishment-at-sea evolutions, the Armory di- vision is tasked with shooting the initial lines to the pro- viding ship. This allows for the passing of working lines, fueling hoses and cargo rigs by which ENTERPRISE receives a majority of its sustenance. During the JTG 99-1 deploy- ment the gunners fired over 150 lines. These same gun- ners also fire the shotlines used when ENTERPRISE moors. Being a vital part of the security of the ship ' s stowed ordnance, G — 2 diligently controls access to the ENTERPRISE ' S many magazines and stowage lockers. Fi- nally, though certainly not the least of their duties, they man the ship ' s 50-caliber machine guns for defense against close-in air and surface targets. During Operation DESERT FOX, G-2 personnel assisted their departmental teammates by operating two weapons elevators virtually around the clock, as well as providing vital manpower for the movement of weapons between the various staging areas.

Put sim- ply, G-3 personnel build bombs, mis- siles, and mines on demand, providing firepower to Car- rier Air Wing Three. The art is precise and unforgiving, practiced in the ship ' s magazines and proven on both the bombing ranges and on actual targets during the de- ployment. G-3 Division personnel are also tasked with provid- ing intermediate-level missile maintenance for the em- barked squadrons. This service enhances combat readi- ness and mission capability by providing quality and timely air-launched missile support. During Operation Desert Fox, this all-star division didn ' t miss a beat, answering every call for ordnance quickly and safely. In support of the air strikes against Iraq, the " Mag Rats " broke out, assembled, and issued over 325,000 pounds of high-explosive ordnance. Dur- ing the 70 hour air campaign, more than 200 precision guided weapons and over 80 high-speed anti-radiation missiles (HARM) were expended by CVW-3 aircrews against Iraqi targets.

In addition, the squadron plays a vital role in such diverse operations as fighter intercept and air strike control, ocean surveillance and search and rescue coordination. The Seahawks are one of seven Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadrons based in Norfolk, Virginia. They are equipped with four E-2C Hawkeye aircraft. VAW-126 was commissioned in Norfolk, Virginia on 1 April, 1969. Originally named " Closeout, " the squad- ron and its four E-2A aircraft were made part of Attack Carrier Air Wing SEVENTEEN assigned to the USS Forrestal (CV 59). Thus began a five year association with the CVW-17 FORRESTAL team. From 1975 to 1995, the squadron made deployments to several hot spots around the world, supporting op- erations from Bosnia to Iraq and participating in evolu- tions such as the Special Shuttle launch and Operation Sail in Boston. In the 20-year span, they continued to establish themselves as one of the Navy ' s prerr i VAWs, capturing several coveted aviation awards, re i ing flying milestones regularly, and receiving the Ns latest aircraft upgrades. In November 1996, VAW-126 deployed aboard S Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) for JTG 97-1 during w the squadron worked with many NATO countries in eral training evolutions. VAW-126 participated in J per Stallion, US French PASSEX, INVITEX, an i Bosnian operations. The squadron performed Counter Narcotic Operat in Puerto Rico from August to October 1997. Altho | based out of Naval Station Roosevelt Roads, the sqi : ron occasionally worked our f Howard Air Force B i Panama and Curacao, a small island North of Vem ela. After returning home, VAW-126 continued to : vide low level radar coverage several weekends t : month for Cuban " Brothers to the Rescue " operati i During the 1998-99 deployment on board Enterpi the Seahawks were an instrumental part of the CV team, leading the way in Operation Desert Fox and j 4 eral other air wing evolutions.

In August 1948 the squadron was redesignated VF-32, the designation that it still bears today. Through- out its history, VF-32 has flown many different aircraft, starting with the F6F Hellcat, followed by a proud tradi- tion of Navy aircraft including the F8F-1 Bearcat, the F4U-4 Corsair, the F9F-6 Cougar (the Navy ' s first jet fighter), the F8U-1 Crusader, the F-4B Phantom, and finally its current jet, the F-14 B Upgrade Tomcat. The Swordsmen have been called to duty many times over their history, including the Korean Conflict, the Cu- ban Missile Crisis, the Vietnam War, Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, and most recently, Operations Southern Watch and Desert Fox in Iraq and Operations Deliberate Forge and Noble Anvil in the Adriatic Sea. On January 4, 1989, a section of " Gypsy " Tomcats, while conducting routine operations north of Libya, v: vectored on two approaching Libyan Fighters. Afte tempts at a peaceful intercept, and with hostile in evident, the section of Swordsmen met the threat fired AIM-7 and AI M-9 missiles, downing two Lit MIG-23 Floggers. The combat proven Swordsmen turned to Oceana in February of 1989. On December 17, 1998, Carrier Air Wing Three assigned to conduct the first airstrikes against Iraqi gets during Operation Desert Fox. The Gypsies drop over 100,000 pounds of precision laser guided ordina and participated in 39 missions, 37 of those as strik Many firsts were made, including the first GBU- dropped by a Tomcat in combat, the first multiple G 24 drop by any platform in combat, the first combat (j of the LANTIRN targeting pod by an F-14, and the female Tomcat pilot and RIOs to go into combat.

On 1 November 1967, VA-105 was commissioned at NAS Cecil Field, flying the new A-7A Corsair II. The " Gunslingers " embarked on their first deployment to Southeast Asia participating in combat operations in the Gulf of Tonkin from January to October 1969. Over the years, the " Gunslingers " have completed four Western Pacific and thirteen Mediterranean deploy- ments, including a deployment to MCAS Iwakuni, Japan as part of the Marine Corps Unit Deployment Program. On 10 January 1991, VA-105 was redesignated VFA-105 as the squadron transitioned from the A-7E to the F A- 18C. The " Gunslingers " reported to CVW-3 in Septem- ber of 1991 and have since made deployments aboard the USS John F. Kennedy (CV 67), USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69), USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71), and most recently aboard USS Enterprise (CVN 65). The 200 men and women of VFA-105 have just com- pleted another exciting and rewarding Mediterranean Arabian Gulf deployment, distinguishing themselves once again in various exercises and operations. After steaming at top speed across the Atlantic, the " Gun- slingers " participated in Operation Southern Watch ovlr the skies of Iraq and soon found themselves involved combat operations. Through the combined effort of all hands, the squa ron launched 47 combat sorties during Operation Desit Fox, delivering 52 tons of precision-guided ordnanc After leaving the Arabian Gulf for the Adriatic, the E- terprise CVW-3 team once again found itself " on-caf as tensions in the Former Republic of Yugoslavia i- creased. Along the way, they participated in Operath Deliberate Forge, INVITEX, and Juniper Stallion. In mid-March, the ship left the cold waters of tie northern Mediterranean and headed to the warm air f the Gulf and Operation Southern Watch once again. Aft nearly a month, the Big " E " transited the Suez Carl one last time and headed for a well deserved, and mm anticipated homecoming. Throughout their history - from the galley, to tie flight deck, to the maintenance shops - the " Gunslin- ers " have continually strived for excellence in all are; of carrier aviation. Their outstanding operational recoH clearly demonstrates that VFA-105 continues to be tk premier example of a fully capable, combat-ready strife fighter squadron able to project power and America resolve during times of war or peace anywhere in tk world.

The squadron began flight operations T with ten North American SNJ-4 Texans and one F4U- F ID Corsair. On 28 July 1987, the squadron retired its last F-4S Phantom and received its first F A-18A Hor- tl net and in November of 1991, the " Checkerboards " C received the first Marine Corps single-seat night at- e tack variant of the F A-18C. T In May 1992, the squadron become the first of 4 l Marine FA-18 squadrons to integrate into Navy Car- a rier Air Wings. ° In June of 1992, VMFA-312 joined Carrier Air Wing EIGHT and deployed to the Medite rranean Red Sea in d 1993. While deployed, the " Checkerboards " partici- C pated in Operations Deny Flight and Deliberate Guard n in support of NATO Forces in the former Yugoslavia, a I and Operation Southern Watch in support of S f forces in the Red Sea. _ Redeploying for a second THEODOl ROOSEVELT cruise with CVW-8 in 1995, the " Chejt erboards " participated in the first direct comli, operations in the European Theater since World V Two while operating in support of UN Forces in te Former Yugoslavia. With a one-year turnaround, VMFA-312 made is third ROOSEVELT cruise in 1996-97, this time wl Carrier Air Wing Three. In April of 1998, the " Chej erboards " rejoined Carrier Air Wing Three in USS El TERPRISE (CVN-65). Within miles of their Parris ; land founding, VMFA-312 departed MCAS Beaufort n a fourth consecutive carrier deployment in Noveml of 1998 aboard Big E. In December of 1998, Checkerboard FA-18s off If deck of ENTERPRISE flew over 40 combat missions! Operation Desert Fox over the skies of Iraq. The Coi manding Officer of VMFA 312 is Lt. Col.

Four years earlier, VS-22 had been disestablished at NAS Norfolk, Virginia, due to federal budget cuts. The first VS-22 ' s legacy went directly back to VA-22, the first east-coast carrier based ASW squad- ron. From re-establishment until 1974, VS-22 flew the venerable Grumman S-2 " Tracker " best known as the " Stoof . " Jet transitions started in the summer of 1974 with pilots training in T-2s and A-4s at NAS Meridian, Mississippi. On January 6, 1976, VS-22 sailed from NAS Mayport, Florida to the Mediterranean Sea onboard USS Saratoga as the first deployed S-3A Viking squadron. The Checkmates have set the VS community stan- dards since their re-establishment, winning ten Battle Efficiency Awards. During Operation Desert Storm, the squadron flew in every CVW-3 strike against Iraq. Op- erations Provide Comfort and Provide Promise brought a shift in VS-22 ' s role as , once again, the S-3B Viking ' s electronic support systems became the Battle Group Commander ' s eyes and ears in another potentially hos- tile environment. While conducting air wing proficiency operatic: during Provide Promise, the Checkmates provided i- valuable radar locating and Command and Control i- formation while U.S. Air Force assets dropped relief st plies throughout a fluid electronic warfare environme. VS-22 also had the distinction of being the first S-l command to be assigned female Sailors. On April 21, 1997, in the Eastern Mediterranean, ie Checkmates became the first S-3B squadron to laud the AGM-65F Infrared Maverick missile. During depig- ment, the Checkmates distinguished themselves in C eration Desert Fox. Over the northern Arabian Gulf ac Kuwait, VS-22 excelled as a critical strike support .; set, as Naval Air forces dominated the Iraqi skies fnr the deck of Enterprise. Since inception, the Checkmates have operated fnr the decks of legendary carriers that include: USS Ess i (CVS-9), USS Intrepid (CVS-11), USS Randolph (CY 15), USS Wasp (CVS-18), USS Oriskany (CVA-34), US Lake Champlain (CVS-39), USS Saratoga (CV-60), UJS Independence (CV-62), USS Kitty Hawk (CV-63), W Enterprise (CVN-65), USS America (CV-66), USS Join F.

VAQ 130 adopted the nickname " Zappers " and the Zapper Dragon insignia when the squadron was originally commissioned as Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron THIRTEEN (VAW 13) flying AD-5Q ' s in 1959. In 1968, the command was redesignated VAQ-130 and placed under the operational control of Tactical Elec- tronic Warfare Wing THIRTEEN (VAQW 13). After com- missioning the squadron supplied support detachments aboard all Pacific and Atlantic aircraft carriers. These detachments, flying the EAK-3B Skywarrior aircraft, pro- vided sea and shore based forces with electronic counter-measures (ECM) and air-to-air refueling capa- bilities. In March 1975, VAQ 130 was restationed at NAS Whidbey Island, Washington and transitioned to the EA- 6B " Prowler " aircraft. In June of the same year, VAQ 130 joined Carrier Air Wing EIGHT aboard USS Nimitz (CVN-68) for a three and one half month cruise to the Caribbean and North Atlantic where the Zappers were part of Nuclear Task Group SEVENTY-FIVE, formed to show our NATO allies the capability of the nuclear Navy. In August 1990, shortly after the squadron transitioned to the fifth generation ICAP II Block 86 EA-6B version, they deployed on board Kennedy to the Red CDR Clan Sea, in support of Operation Desert Commandin Shield Storm, where it became the first Office Prowler squadron to fire a HARM in combat. Subsequently VAQ-130 was awarded the CNO Safety " S " and the COM N AVAIRLANT Battle " E " awards for 1990. In August 1995, the Zappers rap- idly departed an exercise to return to Operation Deny Flight with two aircraft to assist the VAQ-141 Shadowhawks. When Operation Deny Flight took on an entirely different focus August 30, the Zappers were flying around the clock as part of the SEAD campaign. Due to the intensity of the air strikes, the largestin NATO ' s 45-year history, the remaining Zapper aircrt arrived in Aviano on September 1, 1995, with the enl-e squadron in place there a short two weeks later. After returning from deployment aboard USS Dwiii D. Eisenhower (CVN 69) in May 1997 CVW-3 transition to USS Enterprise (CVN 65). In January 1998 VAQ- If! was officially redesignated as Electronic Attack Squil- ron ONE THREE ZERO (VAQ-130). The Zappers w awarded the 1997 Prowler Squadron of the Year for T: tical Excellence Award, winning that award for the se ond year in a row. They were also awarded the Asso- ciation of Old Crows Outstanding Unit Award for 19 i In November 1998, the Zappers deployed aboard h terprise for a six-month cruise to the Mediterranean ad Arabian Gulf. The first portion of the 1998 cruise saw ENTERPR1IE rapidly deploy to the Arabian Gulf to take over Opei I tion Southern Watch again. Tension in the area causkh by refusal of UN arms inspectors in Iraq led to Ope tion Desert Fox. The Zappers were proud to supprt the largest all-Navy strikes in history by flying over for ' five combat hours on eighteen sorties in count Throughout the four days in Desert Fox, the Zapp launched sixteen HARM missiles and jammed Iraqi i dars, keeping a 100% survival rate for the entire it- eration. After leaving the Gulf, Enterprise transited lei Suez Canal to the Mediterranean, and have twice berr called into the Adriatic to support Operation Delibenej Forge.

One of the new- est aircraft in naval aviation, the ES-3A Shadows were designed to replace the venerable A-3D Electric Whale. Built on modified S-3A airframes that were manufac- tured in the mid-1970 ' s, their upgrade five years ago cost upwards of $65 million for each jet. A total of six- teen Shadows were built and split between two squad- rons: VQ-5 Sea Shadows in the Pacific Fleet and VQ-6 in the Atlantic Fleet. The ES-3A Shadow is a carrier-based electronic sur- veillance (ESM) and signals intelligence (SIGIIMT) pig- form. It ' s antennae can detect several bands of radi- tion, locate and identify the source, and transmit tl data back to the ship, giving the battle group and th- ater commanders an emissions picture of the battle e - vironment. Detachments of two aircraft normally d- ploy with every carrier air group, providing the battli group with electronic surveillance, intelligence, and ta geting. The squadron is composed of four individual detac- ments and a home guard component. The four detac ments rotate among the five Atlantic Fleet carrier ar wings. Due to budgetary cuts, VQ-6 will be decommi sioning by fiscal year 2000. VQ-6 is commanded by Corj- mander Chris Bergey, and Det " A " aboard the USS E terprise is headed by Officer-in-Charge (OIC), Lieute ant Commander Dave Maier. LCDR Maier, Officer-In-Charge, Det.

Helicopter Antisubmarine Squadron SEVEN is one of five East Coast operational fleet helicopter squadrons tasked with antisubmarine warfare (ASW), search and rescue, airborne utility services, and combat search and rescue. HS 7 flies the SH-60F and HH-60H, both single rotary wing, twin turbine powered helicopters with a maximum gross weight of over 21,000 pounds. These aircraft have a maximum speed of 180 knots and are capable of remaining airborne for over 5.5 hours with the use of two optional external fuel tanks. The SH-60F ' s primary mission is ASW in defense of the aircraft carrier inner zone. The HH-60H ' s primary missions are combat search and rescue (CSAR), and na- val special warfare (NSW) support. The SH-60F is a multi-mission, day night all weather aircraft. The SH-60F has the means to detect, localize, track, and attack enemy submarines as well as provide the task force with utility support. The SH-60F ' s pri- mary sensor is the AQS-13F variable depth sonar and is employed along with sonobuoys to detect and track enemy submarines. Detection is accomplished by low- ering the dipping sonar on its 1575 foot cable while the aircraft hovers 60 feet above the ocean. The pilots are assisted in maintaining the hover by an automatic flight control system. The SH-60F crew consists of two pilots and two sensor operators, at least one of a whom is i d fully qualified search and rescue swimmer ready at al 1 times for rescue operations. The SH-60F is also capable of deploying, monitoring arl n processing sonobuoys which are launched froifi sonobuoy tubes mounted in the cabin. A sonobuoy ; j an expendable sensor device which transmits unde-? water acoustic information to the helicopter. The SH-60F carries a wide array of ordnance, includiri :i MK-46 and MK-50 series homing torpedoes and M-60C M240 machine guns. The HH-60H missions include CSAR, NSW (K-Duck, t Duck, HVBSS, and Insert Extract), and Utility. This ai craft has an increased seating capacity in the cabin aro for greater versatility. The cockpit and external ligh j ing are fully compatible with night vision goggles (NVG. The HH-60H armament consists of 2 M-60D M-240 m, chine guns or two GAU17A miniguns. HH-60H survivability equipment consists of a rad; warning system (APR-39(V)1), a chaff flare counte measures dispenser (ALE-39), an infrared jammer (AL( 144(V)1), and a Hover Infrared Suppression Systei , (HIRSS) mounted on each engine exhaust. Over the years, the Shamrocks of HS 7 have develop a reputation as dedicated and professional warriors, ha ing earned the COMNAVAIRLANT Battle ' E ' in 1983, 198 and 1994; as well as the 1993 and 1994 Isbell and Thaci awards.

The Navy officially called it JTG 99- 1 . For Team Enterprise it was an excursion to the other side of the world ... to another world . . . where dictators and despots do not deal well in the finer points of diplomacy but clearly understand the mean- ing of 92,000 tons of aircraft carrier banging on their front door. We traveled 50,000 miles but we went a lot fur- ther than that really, from a collection of divisions and departments and squadrons and staffs to one of the most potent and proven forces for peace and power projection ever assembled. The journey was not an easy one. Our friends and shipmates are immortal- ized now, an indelible part of our trip to the tip of the spear and the great moments we had there. It is quite impossible to adequately explain where we went and the things we did. Every deployment has a unique feel and this marriage of battle group, ship, and air wing was no different. Maybe it was the missions we had the honor and privilege to conduct, or maybe it was just fate but most likely, it was the people . . . 5,000 of them along for the ride, leading, teaching, doing, serving ... the people that said good-bye to family and friends Nov. 6, 1 998 and con- sidered the next six months with an anxious smile. The smiles continued lots of them, crooked and sly, innocent and heartfelt, traded in the passageways and on the catwalks, during liberty call and over chow. Still, it was not all smiles. There were tears too, and frowns and sometimes no expressions at all. The human condition is a vast and spectacular place, am- plified in the confines of an aircraft carrier, thousands of miles from home, spending 16 hours a day to- gether, never more than 1,123 feet from everyone else. As deployments go, our ' s was definitely an E- ticket ride from the high-speed transit to the Arabian Gulf, through Operation Desert Fox and the holidays, and back to the Mediterranean Sea for our initial excursion into the Adriatic Sea. That was just the first half. We still had another visit to the Balkans backyard another round-trip down the Suez Canal, and more time in Saddam Hussein ' s neighborhood In between all that, we managed to sneak in a couple of exercises and yes, even some liberty ports. It is astounding to look back on a six-month cruise and remember everything along the way that tied the whole thing together. Air wing onload advancement exams, general quarters, birth month reviews, Big E Bingo, doing the Ditch, holidays, people coming and going, distinguished visitors, Saddam and Slobodan, Hootie and President Bush. Flashes in time that, taken in their sum, are the motion picture of our deployment. With it, then, comes the soundtrack of screamingjet engines, laughter, mess deck chatter, " B-3, " and arrival honors. Who can forget the inspired 1 MC wake-up calls and mail arrival announcements from Seaman Kuroski, or Petty Officer Barber and Commander Patterson dancing with Secretary Cohen and his wife Janet. What about Vulture ' s Row during the first Operation Desert Fox strike. There were a lot of 0- dark-thirty sea-and-anchor details and not enough brow for the Ops Officer, a lot of time zone shifts and not enough time in Cannes. Let ' s thank the Army for the gym at Camp Darby and the Air Force for back- side tanking. One of the most fantastic aspects of this adven- ture was the real-world impact we were able to make during a lot of our time away. We often hear about the Navy being an instrument of national policy but this was our opportunity to prove it, to be involved on the international stage and make a difference. That we did and did in abundance from the Gulf to the Adriatic. The world had front-row seats to see the special chemistry and flawless performance that char- acterizes Team Enterprise. We validated the theory that all hands have a part in putting ordnance on tar- get. We did it, once again for some, the first time for others. Deployment is over. Has anyone seen Lieu- tenant Shipman? Hey you, get out of the catwalks . . . yes, you . . . we ' re home.
