Eugene Ely Cabovej f11es h1S Curt1ss brplane from a platform erected on the cruiser BlI'IIl1I1ghal'Il anchored rn Hampton Roads USS RANGER CCV 45 Ctopj the f1rst Shlp bu1lt from the keel up as an arrcraft carr1er was comm1ss1oned1n 1934 Assistant Secretary of the Navy Theodore Roosevelt in 1898, presented a plan to study the military uses of a flying machine designed by Samuel P. Langley. Langley's machine failed and the request was put aside. On November 14, 1910, seven years after the first flight by the Wright brothers, a civilian airplane builder and a civilian pilot proved to the Navy that aviation could go to sea. Eugene Ely flew a Curtiss biplane from a platform erected on the cruiser Birming- ham, anchored in Hampton Roads. In World War I Naval Aviation successfully protected convoys from German U-boats. During the last 10 months of the war American convoys protected by Naval aircraft did not lose a single ship to German U-boats. The single greatest stride in the history of Naval Aviation was made on March 20, 1922. USS LANGLEYCCV-13 was con- verted from a collier to become the worldis first aircraft carrier. On board LANGLEY Navy pilots learned how to conduct flight operations at sea. The first generation of 'ftailhookersv got their training on her deck. By the beginning of the 1930,s the Navy had made great strides in the field of aviation. USS RANGER CCV-45, the first ship built from the keel up as an aircraft carrier, was commis- sioned in 1934. As the threat of war increased in the late 1930,s, Navy planes were ordered to establish neutrality patrols to protect the American coast. When war did strike it was from the air. The attack on Pearl Harbor demonstrated the power of sea-based aircraft. Naval Aviation came of age during World War II with advances in night flight operations and airbome radar. In the years after World War II the Navy began the "jet agen. The advent of jet aircraft and super-carriers spurred Naval Aviation. USS FORREST AL CCV-595, commissioned in 1955, became the first aircraft carrier designed for use with jet aircraft. Six years later the first nuclear powered aircraft carrier, USS ENTERPRISE CCVN-655 was commissioned. World tensions and global problems throughthe 60's and 70,s again proved the need for Naval Aviation. The versatility, mobility and power of the Navy's air ami has allowed rapid response during the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Vietnam War, and has been important in combatting world- wide terrorism. USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT CCVN-715 has new and more sophisticated electronics and aircraft. This new technology proved to be a vital part of U.S. air superiority during the recent Gulf War. 2 I 4 l --9:4 " -.fav-v--v " '- -E+--A ,. , -w- ,,,,,,w,,,,L NYJ.: V VV--Ufausa-1-v-f1"""f "W ' """ TRFACTS KEEL LAID October 31, 1981 CHRISTENING October 27, 1984 COMMISSIONING October 25, 1986 BUILDER Newport News Shipbuilding, Newport News, Virginia TOTAL COST 52.5 Billion PROPULSION Nuclear, with enough fuel for 15 years of normal operations, equivalent to 11 million barrels of fuel oil SPEED More than 30 knots LENGTH OF FLIGHT DECK 1,092 feet BREADTH AT FLIGHT DECK 257 feet HEIGHT, KEEL TO MAST TOP 244 feet Cequal to a 24-story buildingj AREA OF FLIGHT DECK 4-1 X2 acres SIZE OF AIR WING Approximately 85 tactical aircraft COMBAT LOAD DISPLACEMENT 97,000 tons NUMBER OF CREW More than 5,500 Cincluding Air Wingj WEIGHT OF ANCHORS About 30 tons each WEIGHT OF LINKS IN ANCHOR CHAIN 360 pounds each WEIGHT OF PROPELLERS 66,200 pounds each HEIGHT OF PROPELLERS 21 feet each C4 propellersj NUMBER OF AIRCRAFT ELEVATORS Four SIZE OF AIRCRAFT ELEVATORS 4,000 square feet NUMBER OF AIRCRAFT CATAPULTS Four CAPACITY OF DISTILLING PLANTS 400,000 gallons daily STRUCTURAL STEEL 60,000 tons WELD METAL USED IN CONSTRUCTION About 1 million pounds LENGTH OF ELECTRICAL CABLE About 900 miles s H ,A . --v. 1-4-...-,A..L....r. . Theodore Roosevelt American Ideali t Theodore Roosevelt was born on October 27, 1858, in New York City. As a child he struggled against frailty, nearsightedness and asthma. His love of reading helped foster a love of nature and the outdoors. He also began exercising vigorously and developed a life- long interest in what he called "the strenuous lifef' He entered Harvard at 18 intent on becoming a naturalist. As a senior he began work on a book, 'The Naval War of 1812." TR graduated 21st in a class of 177 in 1880 and married Alice Hathaway Lee. After graduation, at the age of 22, Theodore Roosevelt joined New York City's 21st District Republican Club and was elected to the New York Assembly. T R's mother died of typhoid and his wife died two days after giving birth to their daughter, Alice in February 1884. TR left New York to regain his strength and confidence at the Elkhom Ranch in the South Dakota Badlands. Returning to New York City in 1886, TR ran unsuccessfully for Mayor. That same year he married Edith Kennit Carow, who would bear him five children. Political service to Benjamin Harrison won TR a seat on the Civil Service Commission in 1889. He gained national attention by staging a fight against favoritism. Rooseve1t's position: Govemment jobs should go to the most qualified applicants. In 1895 Roosevelt took the post of New York City Police Commis- sioner. As Commissioner TR fought Democrats and Republicans to establish a merit system for appointments and promotions on the police force. TR was appointed Assistant Secretary of the Navy in 1897. He immediately began building the strength of the United States Navy. During the 1898 Spanish-American War TR resigned to go to battle. He organized the First U.S. Volunteer Cavalry Regiment, the "Rough Riders," and saw action in Cuba, at San Juan Hill. Returning from Cuba a hero, Roosevelt was elected Governor of New York in 1899 and quickly resumed his work of refonn. He tightened control of sweatshops and pushed for government supervi- sion of utilities and insurance companies. TR angered the Republican bosses who were now torn between a desire to get TR out of their hair and a wish to exploit his vote- getting vigor. Their solution: Bury him in the Vice Presidency. TR became the running mate of President William McKinley in the election of 1900. His colorful campaign and popularity increased McKinley's margin of victory. On Septmenber 6th, 1901, President McKinley was assassinated. One week later Theodore Roosevelt was sworn in as the 26th President of the United States. In his first year as President, TR took action on his calls for reform by suing the Northern Securities Company. He pressed on with suits against trusts in the beef, coal and sugar industries. Theodore Roosevelt was also active and interested in conservation. He set aside 150 million acres for national use, doubled the number of national parks, and created 16 national monuments. In 1902 TR moved boldly to create the Panama Canal. He mediated a peace which brought an end to the Russo-Japanese War in 1905, and won him the Nobel Peace Prize. In 1907 TR sent a flotilla of 16 American battleships around the world. The Great White Fleet was as TR remarked, "...the most important service I ever rendered to peacef' In 1909 TR left the White House and began a Smithsonian-spon- sored African safari, bagging more than 500 animals and birds. TR was back in politics for the 1912 election. However, TR,s "Bull Moosen party never gained the support needed to bring him the Presidency again. With the outbreak of war in Europe TR stumped hard for the Liberty Bond drive, but with the death of his son Quentin, in 1918 TR's spirit began to wane. In the early moming of January 6th, 1919, Theodore Roosevelt died. "Death had to take him sleepingf, said Vice President Thomas R. Marshall, " for if Roosevelt had been awake, there would have been a fight? Theodore Roosevelt was the first President to fly. He also was the first President to submerge in a submarine. As Assistant Secretary of the Navy he supported research and development in carrier aviation. In naming CVN-71, former Secretary of the Navy John F. Lehman said of Roosevelt, '6He was one of the architects of our modern Navy. He personified the vigor and vision of America. His complete faith in the necessity for and the value of a strong Navy has been fully justified by the most recent history? is' v nw ghiw ard fl' .U 1915 61h 1' , Saldx een gin.

After close to a month of at- sea time for a Fleet Exercise, TR pulled back into Norfolk and into the national spotlight. Waiting on the pier for the ship was the production crew for the NBC Today Show. For two days, from No- vember 20 to November 22, the cast and crew of the Today Show broadcast live from Pier 12 aboard TR. The crew was set up on the flight deck of the aircraft carrier and the moming cast of Bryant Gumbel, Deborah Norville, Wil- lard Scott and Joe Garagiola used the flight deck as their own studio. The impending war with Iraq and TR,s role in it was the major news item and the Today Show reported on those topics as well as feature stories on the crew. Many members of the crew were also able to get in- volved in the actual live produc- tion. While the show was being broadcast, TR sailors and their wives and children were invited to be part of the studio audience. A great many of them had their 15 minutes of fame. Many of them were also able to personally meet the person- alities that helped make the Today Show the number one ranked morning television program. Most everyone found the personalities to be friendly and genuinely con- cerned with the welfare of the sail- ors and their families on TR and already in the Persian Gulf. For TR and her crew, the two day live production was re- sponsible for helping the American public understand the Navy way of life a little better. It was an experi- ence that many TR crewmen will never forget. R, ,L ,-,,f V, ,4 ,-., , ,,,,,., fy, hs , , A W. K 4 4-H J , N l 2 I .

Everyone aboard was aware, as was Saddam Hussein, that the deadline for removal of Iraqi forces from Kuwait was a scant 18 days away. After a brief carrier qualifiaction period in the Virginia Capes area, TR began her transit of the Atlantic. The crossing was favored with calm seas, and was uneventful with the exception of one EA-6B lost when an arresting cable broke when the aircraft landed. Fortunately, all of the aircrew was recovered with only minor injuries. TR proceeded through the Strait of Gibraltar, then didnit tarry in the Med, continuing non-stop in her race to the Arabian Gulf. She transited the Suez Canal on January l4... a first for many of the crew. Most of the men of TR and CVW-8 took advantage of the opportunity to see some of Egypt close-up, and spent some time on the flight deck, soaking up some of the warm Egyptian sun. TR's high speed transit continued through the Red Sea and on around the Arabian Peninsula. January l5 came and went without the commencement of hostilities, but tensions were still high, and most aboard believed war would be inevitable. Un January l7, the expected became reality, as Desert Shield became Desert Storm. CAPT Abbot announced the impending strikes to the crew on the HBully Big Stick Show? 4 i I am absolutely confrdent that We on TR the Arr Wrng and sh1p s company are trarned and ready to do our part There Wrll be tremendous challenges ahead for every srngle man on board CAPT Abbot then quoted the sh1p s namesake former pres1dent Theodore Roosevelt The only proper rule IS never to frght at all rf you can honorably avo1d It But never under any crrcumstances frght 1n a half hearted Way.

The TRXCVW-8 team flew strikes around the clock, pounding targets in occupied Kuwait and deep in Iraq itself. The war raged on for a total of 46 days, until finally word came of a cease-fire on February 28. During the war, TR and CVW-8 more than pulled their share of the load. The 10-squadron TR air wing flew 4,209 sorties, and dropped 4,843 ,233 pounds of ordnance on Iraqi targets. Every CVW- 8 squadron and each aircraft contributed to the overwhelming success of the air campaign against the Iraqis.

EA-6B 64Prowlersi' from VAQ-141 provided electronic warfare capability, jamming enemy radar and also destroying radar sites with their HARM missiles. FXA-18 '4Homets" from VFA-87 and VFA-l5 performed their dual- mission of air interception and long- range bombing to perfection. A-6E ulntrudersn from VA-36 and VA-65 hit Iraqi targets on land and sea with un- erring accuracy, utilizing both preci- sion-guided munitions and fused weapons. S-3B HVikings"fromVS-24, normally an anti-submarine aircraft, adapted their mission to become a mine-hunter, and also were indispen- sable in refueling operations and re- connaissance. The SH-3H 4'Sea Kingt' helicopters from HS-9 provided vital search and rescue capability, and also were called upon for duty as mine- hunters and destroyers. The men and machines of HS-9 further showed their versatility by recovering 35 Iraqi pris- oners of war in two separate missions. Finally, the E-2C uHawkeyes', from VAW-124 were the ueyes in the sky," providing early waming and aerial command and control. This latter mission was especially important for deconfliction of the thousands of al- lied aircraft in the skies over the Ara- bian Gulf. e Although the war proved to be a huge success for the U.S. and its allies, it wasn't won without cost. CVW-8 lost three aviators in the conflict. LCDR Barry Thomas Cooke, pilot, and LT Patrick Kelly Connor, bom- bardierfnavigator of VA-36 were lost in a low altitude mission over Kuwait Bay LT John Dwyer of CVW 8 failed to retum to TR after a strike mission These courageous shipmates were true heroes and will be missed ' I E iN l l 4 X l l I l v l -U I 1 A N .av W ' , - ,f , -,- M. y fi?

TR sailors are no exception -- especially after spending 75 straight days under- Way and fighting in the Gulf War. That Well-eamed break came with TR,s visit to the city of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The Middle Eastern flavor is a strange and exotic one for any Ameri- can sailor, but it was particularly so for TR's crew, because TR is an East Coast-based carrier. 2 ""'-.... X MQ. Dubai is situated in an arid area of the southeastem Arabian Peninsula, bordering on the Arabian Gulf at its southwestern end. Its population in 1981 was about 278,000, most of whom live in and near the city of Dubai. The population -- chiefly Arabs, Iranians and people from the Indian subcontinent -- has grown substantially through immigration since industrialization began in the late 1960,s. Dubai began as a pearl-fishing center around 1800. The city and nearby emirates, known as the Trucial States, signed treaties with Great Britain in 1820, 1835 and 1853 to suppress piracy and slave trading. In 1971, Great Britain withdrew from the area, and Dubai became a founding member of the fully-independent United Arab Emirates. Since 1958, Sheikh Rashadibn Sa'id al-Maktum has ruled Dubai. Islam, their main religion, gives the city its uniquely Middle Eastem flavor. The aftemoon prayer call ringing from the mosques surprised TR's sailors. During prayer call, the Moslem faithful stop whatever they're doing -- no matter what it is -- to kneel in the direction of Mecca in Saudi Arabia and pray. Dubai's main development began with the discovery of offshore petroleum and natural gas deposits. Income from foreign oil and gas sales has enhanced big construction projects in Dubai City, as well as the creation of a new larger city: Jabal Ali. During TR's stay in Dubai, many of the crew opted to stay overnight to relax and un- wind. The local restaurants gave many sailors a chance to sample the delicious Indian and Ara- bic cuisine. There was even a good selection of American fast-food for those who were not so adventurous. TR sailors took advantage of the organ- ized tours offered through Recreation Services. One popular tour was a day at the races... camel races that is. It's a very popular activity among the locals.

After a failed revolution by Iraqi Kurds, the multi-national coalition was again called upon by the United Nations... this time for a humanitarian mission to relocate and protect the Kurds, who were in danger of being wiped out by Hussein. TR and CVW-8 answered the call, moving through the Suez Canal on April 20 to assist with Gpera- tion Provide Comfort. Operating on station between Cyprus and Turkey, air- craft from TR provided essential reconnaissance missions and close-air support to allied troops on the ground in Iraq, includ- ing U.S. Marines. Tomcats from VF-84 shot more than 150,000 feet of TARPS CTactical Aerial Reconnaissance Pod Systemj film during the operation, providing vital intelligence on the location of Kurdish refugees, and the location and strength of Iraqi forces. These images were dropped to the troops on the ground by VS-24,s S-3B Vikings, utilizing an innovative method of delivery involving the aircraft's sonobuoy contain- ers. CVW-8's A-6E,s from VA-36 and VA-65 flew more than 2,000 hours in more than 600 close-air support missions during Provide Comfort. I I I I I e .1 1 H SJ I ,. 'i 251 v ,-iv.

P. s tVery Important Pigsj The day was clear and blue, and excite- ment was running high as members of TR anx- iously awaited three very distinguished visitors. However, there was much to do before the visi- tors arrived. First, the members of the welcoming party had to get into their uniforms. According to the schedule of events for the arrival, that uni- form was to be a working uniform of the worst possible condition. Next, the 100 or so sideboys mustered with barricades and wooden pallets to hem the guests in. This was done because many expected the visitors to be quite 'fpig-headedv about following the prescribed tour route. It was clear that these were no ordinary guests. .la 'N , ...m 7 5 ff?

As 10 bongs were sounded over the lMC, COMMIDEASTPORK and his entou- rage arrived by helo aboard TR. Many of the more uncouth among the sideboys immediately let loose with a few loud 'fsueysi' before anyone could stop them. Rear Admiral Amold Ziffle, COMIDEASTPORK, did not seem to mind, though. He enjoyed hogging the spotlight too much to even notice. Arriving with Rear Adm. Ziffle was his Chief of Staff, Captain Miss Piggy and his Flag Secretary, Lt. Wilbur Haney. The group of VIPs Cvery important pigsj was sent to TR from USS AMERICA. It's a tradition for a ship relieving AMERICA to re- ceive three live porkers. As the group was corralled, someone sug- gested the Admiral might like to enjoy a bath to freshen up before the tour. Others, just downwind of the Admiral, suggested other, less polite alter- 1 natives. Ensign Jeremy Nelson, TR,s Bull Ensign, was assigned to hand-bathe Captain Piggy. With a pail of soapy water and a glint in his eye, Ensign Nelson proceeded to cleanse Piggy. While no one present could speak pig Latin, Capt. Piggyis squeals of delight were enough to communicate her rapture. A Following an interview with the Com- mand Master Chief, Capt. Piggy was given the honor of sitting in Capt. Abbot's chair on the bridge. Provided with a TR ballcap and those cool aviatoris shades, Capt. Piggy's delicate snout was well protected. Finally the tour came to an end. An in-port sty was arranged for the three, where they were Hsloppedi' with the finest cuisine available aboard ship. Understandably, the group re- mained aboard TR until pigs flew Cwhich hap- pened later the next dayb. 1. 1 - -vi 1' 'Q ""' N, f .F 1 N,,. , af' J ".,. " W,.4', ,, 1. F. ff 1,', ..f g. Q, M.

The crew enjoyed a Well-eamed five days of liberty, and most were able to take advantage of a few days off to see the sights of the Holy Land.

'XX i When many people think about the Administrative Department, a mental picture of a mountain of paperwork comes to their mind. However, while this is part of the job, there's much more to it than that. Admin encompasses Security, Public Affairs, Legal, and Personnel, as well as others. u V p V i The Master-at-Arrns CMAAJ force' is made up of rated MAs and a supplement of petty officers from different divisions. They're the men who keep law and order aboard TR. They maintain physical security of the ship, investigate cases, and protect the crew andtheir property. ' I V MAl CAWJ Samuel Hills described the job as exciting. "No twodays are the same,"' he said. "Anything can happen. What I like about this job is you get to meet a lot of people because you are out and about the shipf' , V B I I Another Admin work center is Public Affairs. JOl B.R. Brown, PAO's Leading Petty Officer, said the job requires a lot of flexibilityf "With only a handful of people it gets pretty' rough at times. The crew deserves a good, professional quality product. Whether it's a. newspaper story or the evening newscast, that's what we try to give themf' I Professional service is also a trademark of TR's Personnel Office. The -Personnel-. men take care of enlisted service records, maintaining and updating them. "In Personnel -- with a few exceptions -- we make all entries in enlisted service records. These entries are very important because a person's career can be affected by what is in his record,', said PN3 James Davis. - - While the Personnel Office takes care of enlisted records, the Captain's Office maintains and updates the officers' records. They also handle all security clearances, all mailed classified material and correspondence. "All correspondence that leaves the ship comes through this office," said YN C Bob Potts, the Assistant Ship's Secretary. "We proofread, serialize, route and then mail them." f I "What the Captain's Office does for the Commanding Officer, Executive Officer Administration does for the XO," said YN3 Onrubio L. Florendo, Jr. In addition, XO Admin provides information to the crew through the ship's Plan of the Dayl Perhaps one of the most important times for any sailor is mail call. It's Admin Department's Postal Clerks who make sure the crew gets their mail in the shortest amount of time. But, as PC2 Cecilio Gonzalez explained, they do more than just sort the mail. "We prepare mail to be shipped off the'ship," he said. "And, we also sell money orders and stampsf' During the first two months of the deployment, money order sales ex-ceeded the S2 million mark. . To some, it may seem like an easy assignment. However, providing recreational outlets for the crew isn't as easy as you may think. Rec Services is always looking for things to do to help sailors enjoy their free time. They organize tours in liberty ports, and run the weekly bingo games underway. . P The Rec Services crew is made up of sailors from various departments. EMSA Don Shaffer described the sixfnronth TAD assignment as very fulfilling. "I get real enjoyment when someone comes back to us and thanks us for services we provide." Unfortunately, a deployment brings with it many problems which require the help of legal services. LN2 Manny Gaona s-aid TR's legalmen serve the crew with routine things.. like wills and powers of attomey, as well as with more complicated matters. When it comes to actually printing the paperwork, it's the LI 's in the Print Shop who come through. They produce about 75 percent of TR's paperwork according to LIC CSWISSJ. Don L. Carlson. The Print 'Shop prints the Plan of the Day and the Rough Rider, as well as other jobs. But, Desert Storm brought with it other requirements. V "We were very busy during Operation Desert Storm," Chief Carlson explained. "Besides our normal work, we printed about 10,000 pages a night for strike plans for the pilots." The Admin Department does ,a lot of ,paper work, but that's only where the job begins. Behind the mountains of paperwork, you can.-find the sailors who keep TR afloat in that sea ofPaPCr., i .

Time delays caused by shipping of needed replacements could complicate or hinder the mission at hand. A ship ' underway -must depend on its own people and resources to get the jobxdone. ' Contributing to that self-sufficiency aboard TR is the Aircraft Intermedi- ate Maintenance Department CAIMDJ. By repairing needed' gear and performing vital repair services, AIMD ensures TR can keep the birds in the air. Keeping TR's ' airwing at 100 percent operational readiness' is AIMD's main mission. , When a squadron needs a replacement part, it's usually obtained through the ship's supply system. Then the broken part or piece of gear is repaired by one of AIMD's more than 400 professionals. It is then put "back on the shelf", ready for reissue to the squadron. Biy providing these valuable parts and services, AIMD drastically reduces turn-around time needed to obtain the items needed by the squadrons. In the first three months of the 1990 calender year, AIMD processed more than 13,000 items, and were able, with their shipboard resources, to repair well over 10,000 of those items. AIMD's total maintenance actions, including parts and services, exceeded the 30,000 mark for that time period. y "Our attitude is: "How we can fix the gear and get it back on the shelf for issue. back to the squadrons?" When we see the jets going off the flight deck, we know things are going pretty smoothly and that we're doing our job," said AFCM QAWQ Fred wiuis, AIMD Production Control Chief. . A A AIMD is divided into four different divisions. The first is IM-1 Division. This division is the "paperwork" division, handling supply inventories and orders, .N ,-1 4 :fit 1 r iitizfiglf' as well 'as providing administrative and clerical support to the rest of the department. . . That includes ordering of all materials AIMD needs to complete its mission, like parts to repair jet engines, as well as consumable supplies for the support and day- I to-day operation of the various workcenters. IM-1 also includes Production Con- trol, which oversees the total production effort in AIMD and also tracks all materials through the division's Material Control workcenter. Another part of IM-1 is the Quality Assurance workcenter, which maintains a technical library. This library is used as a source of reference for the entire department. 4. IM-2 Division is the general maintenance division. This division handles the structural elements of the aircraft, including hydraulics, tires, jet engines, welding and extemal body work. IM-2 also maintainsthe survival gear for the pilots, such as the parachutes, oxygen apparatus and flotation gear needed in the event of ejection over water. IM-3 Division repairs and maintains jet aircraft electronic equipment. That includes the computers that guide the aircraft, radar systems, missile fire control systems, communications gear and even lasers. From recharging a battery to a total rework of an internal computer system, IM-3 Division handlesit. 'Because of the high-tech nature of modern jets, IM-2 and IM-3 Divisions have to interact frequently in the upkeep of the aircraftr ' ' IM-4 Division provides and maintains all support equipment used by the squadrons. That includes everything from aircraft racks to sophisticated air conditioning units used by the aircraft. Emergency equipment like fire trucks, aircraft tow tractors and the jet aircraft cranes used on the flight deck are also maintained by IM-4 Division. IM-4 handles tie-down chains, aircraft jacks and equipment used to hoist andfremove weapons from aircraft. . q - - "This is the fifth ship's company I've been attached to andthis one has the highest morale and dedication I've ever seen," Master Chief Willis said. The support received by family, friends and the nation during Operation Desert Storm was a prime motivator. V "Sailors in general are a 'dedicated bunch. Knowing that the American public was behind us out here means you know the job you're doing is appreciated, and that really brings the men together as a team," Master Chief Willis concluded.

A "'- -' ' " ' V Y' rT'I'if1YJ . ,X You can find some of the most stressful jobs in the world at just about any major airport. Even with their spacious layouts and large work crews, it's a hectic and fatiguing work environment. . X r A Imagine how much that stress increases when you squeeze all that hustle and bustle into an area less than half the size. Pack it with the most essential personnel, add the dimension of explosive ordnance and other armaments, and what you come up with is the modern aircraft carrier. p j TR's Air Department orchestrates the fast-paced action of the flight deck -- launching and recovering the aircraft of Carrier Air Wing Eight. Air tallied more than 5,000 launches and recoveries during the 45 days of Operation Desert Storm. Most of the time, the planes carried heavy loads of ordnance to strike into southern Iraq and Kuwait. "Basically, we did half a deployment's worth of flying in a six-week period,'.' said Lt. Cmdr. Jim Rimpau, V-O Division Officer. - g ' "We were in a very high-tempo operating status. We saw a great deal of landings and launchings with the men putting in some tremendously long hours," he explained. Flight quarters would regularly go from 2300 until 1600 the next day. Lt. Cmdr. Rimpau said pre-operation and post-operation checks added another several hours. "And that's if nothing is broken. You have to realize there is a lot of wear and tear going on with increased operation like that, and the guys who operate the gear are also the ones who fix it." ' Five divisions make up TR's Air Department. V+O Division handles the department's administrative work. Many of the men in V-OsDivision also work in the tower directly for the Air Officer. In that capacity, they act as the "eyes and ears" of the .Air Officer in a variety of tasks, including spotting aircraft, tracking which aircraft is launched and trapped, and the status of aircraft, just to name a few. . Y ' ' V-1 Division has charge of the flight deck. It's the aircraft handlers who move and position the aircraft into their "parking places" on the flight deck. They use the flight deck tractors, "yellow gear", to taxi and position the planes on the catapults. - . V-1 also includes crash' and salvage. These vital crewmembers stand by every flight quarters in case of emergency. p Whether it's a view from the flight deck, vulture's row, or on the Integrated Launch and Recovery Television System CILARTSJ, the focal point of launches is the ship's catapults. The men of the V-2 Division operate and maintain the "cats". They also work on ILARTS, which monitors flight deck operations in the tower. The optical landing system, in addition to flight deck lighting, both critical to night flight operations, are also responsibilities of V-2. The ship's hangar bay, where the aircraft are stored and maintained, is the responsibility of V-3 Division. Each of TR's.three hangar bays has its own crew. And, much like their flight deck counterparts, V-3 handlers take care of everything from spotting or parking the aircraft in the hangar bay to chocking and chaining them down. Once the necessary maintenance is completed and the plane is ready for its next launch, they spot the aircraft on one of the four elevators and send it back up to the flight deck. Of course, the planes can't fly without fuel. TR's V-4 Division takes care ofthat. They store the fuel, pump it up from the storage tanks, and fill the aircraft when needed. There are manythings which can contaminate the fuel. And, although the fuel passes through three filters, VI-4 also tests its quality in the Quality Assurance Lab. r ' Checked out, looked over and fueled up, the aircraft hooks up to the catapult and TR's seemingly endless fight cycle continues, thanks to the hard work of Air Department.

M ,X During the Gulf War TR Communications Department handled more than 2,000 messages a day. If you multiply each message by a factor of 10, you'd have a rough estimate of the number of paper copies distributed daily. The number figures out to about 20,000 pieces of paper. - That may seem like a monumental task. "In some ways it is,', commented-RM2 Jose Jones, Message Center Supervisor. I "I've been aboard more than three years and Ilve never seen so much. message traffic before. We've been through a lot of exercises and all that stuff, but this was amazingfl Jones said. T . ' , ' ' For the close-to 60 enlisted men and three officers of the Communications Depart- ment, the war was merely a test of their ability to get the job done. "We did great. We delivered every messagein a timely manner and I'm very proud of all the guys up here. It makes me feel proud to know that when ,the real thing happened, we did it," said Jones. . . g Lt. Terry Beveridge, Officer in Charge of Communications, said his men per- formed extremely well under the heavy workload and were complimented more th-an once on their performance. I I "We got several kudos for the job we were doing up here. In our world the way we get compliments is from the people we have to deal with. NAVCAMSWESTPAC in Guam sent us a number of wire notes saying it was nice to have professionals back in theater again. They gave us some real rave reviews. It's always encouraging to see that," he said. Sometimes people get confused about what the men in Communications do. Comm doesnft handle any of the ship's interior communications, like telephones. T hat's handled by IC-men in Engineering. T "The communications we handle areextemal communications. Thatis primarily brought in by satellite and high-frequency. We also provide tactical communications service, which is communications circuits to other ships. A lot of that is Ultra-High Fre- quency, which is line-of-sightf, Lt. Beveridge explained. i One thing that Communications feels is a very serious responsibility is the image of the ship and command. "The message traffic that goes out reflects directly on us and we send that throughout the world. If you have a message that doesn't look right, isn't correct or isn't timely, it reflects badly on us. That's why we take that as a very serious responsibil- ity," said Lt. Beveridge. I Perhaps Jones summed it up best when he said, "If you make a mistake, a lot of people could get killed. If you don't deliver the message on time, you might missthe targets or be there late. It's important to get the job' done right. There's no place for mistakes." gwga, ' - - , 1 ' " 4 - 1 , .Q . ,, - ' " ' -A " - ...rf ,,. m. .

But, they dog they have to. V X ' ' Everytime you walk into the shipis library or the crew's lounge, you 're in Command Religious Ministries Department territory. Have you ever received a' message from Red Cross or help from Navy Relief? CRMD runs it.. If youive gotten letters or gifts from the America Remembers campaign, CRMD is involved with that, too. P In addition to all those programs, CRMD is also responsible for 30s religious activities throughout the week, including worship services, Bible studies and fellowship groups. f When religious activities arenit in progress, the chaplains and RPs remain busy with other work. Counseling shipmates takes up a good part of their day. . , "We like to be here for the guys when they do have a problem," saideCapt. Ivan Fuller, Command Chaplain. "All of us need somebody to talk to. All we usually have to do is sit and listen. A lot of the time all these guys need is somebody to listen to them." Chaplain Fuller said sometimes sailors are leery of talking to the chaplains because of their military rank. "We like to reassure them and let them know that they should look at the left side of our collar fthe side with the crossj and not the right. The only reason chaplains have rank is to support their mission," he said. V RPC George Boring, CRMD LCPO, said the RPS in the office are more involved in support of the crew. "We don't get into counseling too much. Our. involvement with the library and crew's lounge is very worthwhile. We have a lot of people come up to use this facility," he said. , . . Chief Boring said the CRMD staff tries to start different activities to get the crew involved. "We like to let them feel like theyire helping out with our projects. We do something called Bible verse of the week, where shipmates submit a verse and it's pub- lished. We also have a Bible crossword puzzle of the week. ln the crew's lounge we have a table set up with a jig-saw puzzle. The guys are welcome to come in and work on it whenever they want," said Chief Boring. - Perhaps Chaplain Fuller summed up CRMD's mission best when he said, "We provide a ministry of presence to the crew. We do that to let the sailors and Marines know that their churches back home have sent pastors out to be with them and to be a part of their lives." Chaplain Fuller assured the wives and families back home that CRMD is here for their husbands and loved ones. "It helps the wives to know there's a place aboard ship their husbands can go and share the problems they might be having. "These guys aren't alone -- thereare people from the Commanding Officer on down who are concemed about them as individuals. We're here to make their jobs meaningful and their quality of life aboard ship comfortable. But, we also want their tour to be challenging and a time of growth." The contributions made by TR's CRMDLare so far-reaching, many, crewmen who take advantage of their programs aren't even aware of it. 52:33 Capt.

' C 'XC Deck Department takes care of everything fromidriving the ship and boats to handling cargo and fuel. The First Lieutenant, Ship's Boatswain, three division officers, three chiefs and l l7 sailors make up the depart- ment. ' A . "Wefre a dedicated group of professionals who enjoy doing our jobs to 100 percent of our capabilities - whether thatls driving the boat or doing at-sea replenishment," said BMC CSWJ Earl B. Jones, Deck Depart- ment Leading Chief. , ' During Desert Storm, Deck was responsible for taking on more than seven million gallons of JP-5 and 600 pallets of supplies. , ' - ' "Juggling the unreps wasn't easyj' said YN3 Peter M. Dumas, Deck Department yeoman. "They had to be scheduled between flight ops- and often with only a couple hoursno'tice." " There are three divisions in Deck Department, each responsible for a particular' aspect of deck seamanship. , First Division anchors the ship and maintains the 255 CO2 lifeboats onboard. When the ship goes to anchorage, it's the men of First Division who actually lower and raise the anchor. "When the ship drags the anchor during anchorage, the Officer of the Deck will have us man the fore- castle. The rest of lst Division, the First Lieutenant, the Ship's Boatswain and I will go to the foc'sle to take up the anchor for repositioning of the ship," said SN James M. William. "This procedure is important because it could stop the ship from possibly going aground? ' Second Division manages the Canvas Shop, replenishment stations and the quarterdeck. They manu- facture canvas goods, and reupholster chairs, boat canopies and brow skirts. Perhaps the most visible Second Division product is their decorative rope work or "fancy work". . V g Manning TR's replenishment stations is one of Second Division's most important tasks. "Replenish- ment at sea is one of our biggest tasks, both in taking on .cargo and fuel. Without it, we wouldn't have food or repair parts and TR could not complete her mission," said BM2 Dexter A. Smith, Second Divisionls Assistant Leading Petty Officer. 2 A A While at sea, the crew burns their trash so they won't contaminate the sea. In addition to their other jobs, Second Division mans the incinerator. "T he cooperation of the crew has made what could have been a very dirty job into a bearable necessity," Smith commented. - After a long time at sea, every sailor looks forward to a good liberty port- and, with liberty, comes the need for the liberty boats. That's where Third Division comes in. "When the ship goes on liberty, Deck Department goes to port and starboard watches to ensure that the crew gets off quickly and safely," said BM3 Trevor G. Berger, petty officer in charge of boat repair. "I really like knowing that my job is appreciated. When one of your shipmates come up to you and thanks youfor getting them to and from fleet landing, that's thanks enough for the long hours that we put in," Berger added. Third Division works long hard hours at sea, too. During flight operations, they man TR's two motor whale boats when needed. ' A 1 A Boatswains Mates, the oldest rating in the Navy, have been. keeping ships afloat for over 200 years. They are the core of TR"s Deck Department. Without them, she would, literally, be going nowhere.

Many people dread going to the dentist for a variety of reasons: they're afraidof needles, the drills make them nervous, or maybe it costs too much. r The dentists and dental technicians of TR do their best to reduce the fear and the nervousness for the crew. And, best of all, the cost is free. t A DT1 Abraham Tan, Dental LPO, said Dental Department's job is to provide dental care for ship's company, embarked air wing, task force or battle group and staff personnel. A g "This responsibility includes the prevention, remedy and control of oral diseases, disabili- ties and injuries of the teeth, jaw and related structures which directly, or indirectly interfere with the performance of military duties," he added. . e X . j As do many departments aboard, Dental has someone on duty 24 hours a day -- just in case of an emergency. V ' "With this many people aboard and crews working around the clock, it's necessary to be manned allthe time," said DT3 Terrance W. Blanche. , , H "At any time of the day a crew member could get hit by a wrench, slip down a ladder or be hit by a door, that-may cause a dental related injury. The duty section can provide immediate assistance to correct the problem or ease the pain until proper care can benadministeredff The range of treatment available includes oral surgery, periodontics Ctreatment of gum diseasesj, root canals, replacing missing or badly broken teeth, and, of course, filling cavities and routine cleaning. j ' , . . "We can do anything that a civilian dentist can do, except braces," said Lt. Gary M. Cummings,Assistant Dental Officer. ' ' A T i The lieutenant should. knowg he used to be a civilian dentist. "In comparing the two, civilian and military dentistry, the military quality is hi gher," he said. "In the civilian world, you have to worry about staffing, supplies, insurance and salary going up or down due to the economy. "In the Navy, all these factors are pretty much taken care of for you. T his," he explained, "gives 'the Navy dentist more time to do quality work."

It has just about everything it needs to operate on its own, including power to run her engines and electrical systems. The power for this city is generated by two nuclear reactors. V , The men in Engineering, led by CDR Mark O'Hare, Chief Engineer, usethis power to run the ship's electrical, ventilation, air conditioning, laundry, food service and various other systems. Engineering is divided into three main divisions: Auxiliaries CAD, Electrical CED and Repair CRD. Each of these divisions works day and night to make operations on TR possible. A Division is made up of Machinist' s Mates CMMJ, Machinery Repairmen fMRJ, Enginemen CENJ and Boiler Technicians CBTJ. r ' The MMs work on mechanical maintenance dealing with ventilation, laundry, air condition- ing, all hydraulic systems such as after steering and aircraft elevators, steam heat and the out-of-plant motor-driven firepumps. MRS work in the Machine Shop, manufacturing parts' and repairing machinery. Boiler Techs are responsible for the operation of the auxiliary boiler, which provides steam for the galley and laundry in case there is a problem with the main boiler. The Enginemen work on the boat engines forthe liberty boats, so the crew can get to and from a port to enjoy some time off. - A A The Electrician's Mates CEMJ of E Division operate on the ship's electrical system, which provides everything from lighting and electricity for electrical gear to electrically operated motors and food service equipment. The Interior Communication Electricianis CICJ main jobs include the operation of the 3,000 phones on TR, the sound-powered phones, the gyrocompass and most of the alanns used to detect flooding and illegal entry. E Division. is also in charge of TR's electrical safety program. A V The men of R Division are assigned from two ratings. The Hull Technicians CHTJ run the ship's sewage system and perform repairs on many of the piping systems used on TR, especially for the urinals and toilets. Along with this, they also work with the Sheet Metal Shop to manufacture various items and remodel the different shops on TR. Everyone on trained in damage control to keep the ship floating if the ship is damaged, but the Damage Controlmen CDCJ are the experts in the field. The DC-men are responsible for training the crew in damage control. i ' R Division also runs the Nucleus Fire Party, which fights fires, combats flooding and responds to any other emergency which can affect the operation of the ship. Engineering Department has three main watch stations where the crew can put in a trouble call so that their equipment can be repaired. These watches are the CAO CChief Auxiliaries Operatorj for A Division, the CEW CChief Electrical Watchj for E Division and the DCWS CDamage Control Watch Supervisorl for R Division. - -1 .11--.-1'lr'f"'7'f' . - -1 ' , -.

With the advent and development of computers, radar systems and other high-tech ' equipment, that has never been more true than it is now. The Gulf War was a prime example of today's i "smart" weapons and technology in action. q. Providing that information to the top battlefield decision- makers requires a vast number of J highly-trained professionals who gather, process and help disseminate all that vital information. Aboard TR'you will find those pros in the ship's Operations Departmentf Operations Department, known simply as "Ops" in the sailors' vernacular, is .one of the - - largest departments on the ship. Containing 13 different divisions, the department employs some of the most sophisticated hardware and highly technical skills to be found in the modern Navy. Operations Department's OC division specializes in Air Operations. They are responsible for the coordination of all matters pertaining to flight operations and the proper functioning of the Carrier Air Traffic Control Center CCATCCJ. Aboard an aircraft carrier, that is quite a job. OC Division also handles planning and scheduling transfers of cargo, personnel and, every sailor's.favorite, mail. The men of OA.division are the weather men of TR. In addition to being the meteorological specialists of the ship, they are also the head weather center for the battle group. OA division even informs the crew of the current weather conditions via the nightly newscast on the ship's closed-circuit television system. OA division tracks oceanographic patterns by studying currents and underwater acoustics which can be used for anti-submarine warfare. OP division is the photographic division. The photographic support they provide is extensive. During combat and training exercises, OP division may use its resources for intelligence gathering and aerial photographs for mapping purposes. In addition, OP division documents ceremonies held aboard and takes photos for the ship's daily newspaper, familygram and cmisebook. OP division also processes all of its own film in the ship's photo lab. A OZ division contains the Intelligence specialists. Working in the Carrier Intelligence Center r CCVICJ, OZ division gathers information and puts it into a form that allows key decision-makers to utilize it in the best and quickest manner. - OS division is in charge of the Ship Signal Exploitation space. These are the electronic intelligence specialists. OS division even includes foreign language specialists who monitor foreign broadcasts for any late-breaking news of vital interest. ' OI division includes the Operation Specialists and Data Processors. These men assist the ship's Tactical Action Officer CTAOJ in Hfightingl' the ship, using the high-tech weapons and radar systems. OI division allows the ship to fight on the various levels of anti-submarine, anti-air and anti- surface warfare. By making and identifying radar contacts, OI division is able to provide the TAO with the information he needs. ' V I A ' . OX division' handles the administrative needs of Operations Department. Writing personnel evaluations, awards ,messages and official correspondence is the responsibility of OX division. Also attached to OX division is the specialized "Strike Ops". Strike Ops is responsible for the ship's daily, weekly and long range schedule. In addition, Strike Ops authors the Air Plan, and plans all strikes and Combat Air Patrol stations. t f LCDRJame.vLinquiSf Operations Ojjicer 4 Four divisions in Operations Department help to maintain the electrical equipment. Those divisions includes OE division, headed by the Electrical Materiel Officer CEMOJ, which is responsible for the readiness of all of the ship's electronics and combat systems, OEC.division is responsible for the maintenance of communications andother equipment assigned to those areasg'OED division maintains electronic data systemsg OEM division handles the care of ship's fire control, close-in-weapon, missile and associated systems, and OER division maintains radar and air navigation equipment. P E - I b ' i Finally there is OW-40 division. 'This special division concentrates on the departmentls Damage Control CDCJ. They are responsible for maintaining all DC equipment and keeping it in top working condition, ready for any emergency. s These divisions are in constant motion to collect the infonnation, plan, schedule and executethe mission at hand.

Reactor Department It takes a lot of energy to move a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier through the oceans. That energy comes from TR's reactors. "Two nuclear reactors supply the power whichfpropels the ship and makes the electricity for her many support systems," explained Lt. Michael T. Aldridge, a reactor plant officer. I ' T The plant uses a nuclear reactor to provide heat. Water is then heated by the reactor to make steam that runs the ship. 1 . Simply put, the reactor makes steam. TR's propulsion plant is the heart of this process. Basically, the plant is a pressurized water reactor system. The design-has two basic sections. The first circulates water through piping loops, pumps, and steam generators in the reactor, producing heat. This heat, in tum, is transferred to the water under high pressure. Then the water goes through the steam generators and back into- the reactor for reheating. In the second section, the steam flows to the turbine generators. Itfs these generators which supply the ship's electricity. The steam also provides the energy for the main propulsion turbines which drive the propellers. Both the primary and secondary sections are closed systems where water is recirculated and reused. The secondary section is isolated from the primary systems so the water in the two does not intennix. . . "The use of two heat transfer loops provides isolation of the general atmosphere from possible radioactive contamination while maintaining an efficient heat transfer process," said ETI Harry Borick. All the energy transfer happens through a process called nuclear fission. The Reactor.Department is manned by personnel in traditional ratings: Electrician's Mates, Machinist Mates, and Electronics Technicians. All reactor personnel must meet specific qualification standards before they- can assume the duties of working with a nuclear reactor. During Desert Storm, the Reactor Department supplied the ship with the necessary energy to support the war. Their efforts ranged from producing the steam for the catapults to the electricity used to read a letter from home.

The possibility for accidents lurks around every corner. Ensuring that those possibilities don't become reality are the officers and men of TR's Safety Department. an "Our job is to educate people in the proper rules which will minimize the chance of a mishap," said CDR John Muncie, TR's Safety Officer. k , - ,. Patrolling the ship to locate and correct safety violations is only a small part of this top-priority job. Safety is also responsible for ensuring the crew is aware of the hazards associated with shipboard life. g g To attain this goal, safetypersonnel publish a daily safety note. They also schedule safety films to be shown on the ship'stelevision station, as well as individual department and divisional training classes. "With a ship of this size, it is impossible to schedule 'what each squadron or division should be doing in their safety pro grams," said CDR Muncie. "For that reason, it's essential that divisional safety represen- tatives encourage their . people to actively participate in all of our programs." if . I From time to time, the operation of the ship is stopped for a day, and all hands take time to concentrate on safety. 'llhis evolution, called a Safety Standdown, allows Safety Department to have the attention of everyone on board and ensure that their message is heard. and under- stood. ' , ' While shipboard accidents cannot be eliminated altogether, Safety Depa1tment's efforts go a long way to significantly reducethe number of accidents which cause injuries, damage to equipment and loss of life.

SMM deals with the coordinatedimaintenance of the ship, as Well as coordinat- ing equipment configuration management, ship alterations and long-term mainte- nance, including shipyard Work. SMM is made up of three divisions: MSC, QA and MSC is the service division. "If you need. a part and can't find it, see usf' said WTI Gary Dygert, MSC LPQ. "We'll dig through the books and help you get the part you need." As the customer service branch of SMM, all requisitionchits are routed through MSC to be verified. "Our job is to make sure their paperworkiscorrect and the chit goes through smoothlyf' said SKSN Hugh Dunkley.' "If the part isnlt provided by the Navy, we'll help the requesting' shop, coordinate with the manufacturer to get the pan more quicklyf' MSC also handles TR' s technical publications. They havemore than 5 ,000 manuals that must be updated as changes are made to any number of systems. MSC personnel also make sure each department is advised of those changes. A The ship's 3M office tracks maintenance activity on board. That may seem to be an ambiguous definition, but it's accurate. The. 3M office handles hundreds of feed-back reports each week. When these feed-back reports are retumed, the 3M office often helps decipher the response. ' ' "3M tracks the maintenance, both preventive and corrective, on all the machinery and equipment on boardf, said WT1 Dy gen. "This includes everything from Comm's radios down to the bilge pumps." QA stands for Quality Assurance. QA' s job is to ensure all the jobs are done correctly by properly trained personnel. While not all jobs require QA intervention, many jobs, like working on the reactor, require this kind of precision work. QA personnel strive to make sure the job is done right the first time. Everything revolves around safety and the ship,s mission. V "During a recent inspection, one QA inspector told us that TR's QA tech library was in correct format and the most upgraded of any carrier they've seen on either coast," said GMCM Ralph McKracheme, SMM LCPO. V "Nearly everyone in SMM, except the QA's, are TAD to usj' said Petty Officer Dygert. "Nine out of every 10 individuals who come down here have no idea what they need to know to do their jobs. We start them at the front desk Where they .watch and gleam the basics. Eventually, they leam everything they need to know to accomplish their job. r Y "I enjoy Working with a lot of different ratings," said SKSN Dunkley. "Working down here gives mea chance to leam more about the Navy and my rating. I'm learning more every day. Itls a good community' to be in." X .J X . , . . ' g V, 'L-.yggu ' j:j+fg5:.,ain1':- ..

In an operational environment, it happens each day aboard TR. This is just one of the responsibilities of TR,s Supply Department. ' Add to that responsibility the basic essentials such as clean clothes and linen, haircuts and all of the different types of parts and supplies needed to maintain the equipment on TR. I ' . If you need a part or just some supplies ordered, the Stock Control and Customer Service Center or S-1 Division is the place to visit. S-1 handles all types of merchandise ranging from nuts and bolts to electronics for aircraft and antennas for the ship 'js radars. , I 1 g I f 1 A The General Mess, comprised of S-2 and S-2M Divisions, work day andnight to help keep TR's crew well fed. The divisions are responsible for handling the needs of the enlisted mess. 4 A - The shipis servicemen of S-3 Division play a varied role in helping make life a little better for the crew. The services of S-3 include selling necessities in the ship7s stores, handling the laundry for almost 6,000 men, cutting hair for the same number, and providing soda and snacks through the vending machines. Money is probably one of the most important 'considerations to the crew of TR. The men of Disbursing, or S-4 Division, work long hours to ensure the crew receives their proper pay on payday. While the General Mess serves the needs of TR's enlisted men, it's S-5 Division that handles the officers. S-5 handles two wardrooms to feed the officers. They are also responsible for keeping close to 170 stateroomsfclean. I In order to keep up TR's hectic at-sea schedule, aircraft must be maintained. That means parts and supplies must always be available to keep them in the air. Aviation Stock Control, or S-6 Division, is the place squadrons go to get these parts and supplies. Electronics, tires, paint and even the massive 3.5-ton jet engines are obtained through S-6., W'hen it's time for the crew to order their parts and supplies, they type their orders into the SUDAPS computers. The men' of the Automated Data Processing Division, or S-7, are the ones who maintain and supply these important computers. S-7 technicians also service the many personal computers used around the ship. Another ofthe divisions in supply is S-8, or Materials Division. Their mission is to support the air wing and ship's company with repair parts and consumables. ' S48 is responsible for everything from micro-circuits and rubber O-rings that go on the F-14s to flushing valves for the toilets, as well as a large selection of consumable products from toilet paper to skillcraft pens. y .

A A - - ix The Training Department makes the first and perhaps the most lasting impression on every new Theodore Roosevelt sailor. ' ' - - "When you walk aboard, training is the 'first thing you see, explained Lt. Cmdr. Don Seybold, training officer. "And when you walk off this ship, whethei you're separating or going to another command, you"l1 come through our career couhselors in training again." Maybe that",s why Training is one of the best known departments on TR. x ' ' 0 The first impression on shipmate begins in the School of the Ship. All newly arriving sailors go there for two weeks of indoctrination. I e "Sailors come here and say: 'I'm ready to be taughtI What doyou want me to learn?',,' said MRC Bob Hawks, School of the Ship coordinator. "This is where we teach them all the rules and regulations." V I A M' Chief Hawks stresses the importance of teamwork onboard TR. "A lot of guys need training when they 'get here. They're coming to a shipwhere everybody depends on everybody else for some kind of support. , E A "You can't just run free, you have to learn to work together as a unit," he said. A Training knows all about working as a unit. Their job doesn't stop after a sailor finishes School of the Ship, it's just beginning. They have seven different programs to help the TR sailor. Lt. Cmdr. Seybold said each one, "interrelates with every other programf' C -V "We get a young sailor who walks aboard happy. The next thing we do is get him advanced." A V In addition to Educational Services, they also provide 'the Command Career Counseling, Command Alcohol and Assistance Counseling, Drug and Alcohol Program Advisor, Equal Opportu- nity, and Temporary Additional Duty programs -- because not everyone walks across the brow trouble-free. i V - Lt. Cmdr. Seybold says when a new TR sailor has a problemfno matter what kind, they do their best to fix that problem. He summed up Training's reason for taking care of the sailors when he said, "Retention is the culmination of all -our efforts." He underscored customer service as the bottom line in every training program. "We're here to serve the ship. Everything we do is customer service. ' C "Everybody in my department knows the job's not done until the job's done," he added. "If a kid has a problem in School of the Ship, we don't go to bed and say we'll take care of it tomorrow, we stay until the problem is solved." , o He said everyone who checks aboard TR has an opinion of whatthey think it's going to be like. Training's goal is to take care of the oncoming shipmates. "If they're taken care of, they're going to be an asset to the ship instead of a problem child." . . . As the saying goes, we're taking care of our own. Whether you're coming or going, chances are you'll experience that personal touch in the Training Department.

Throughout Operation Desert Storm,TR's entire crew went the extra mile every day to ensure the ultimate success of the mission. One department that really "turned on the juice" was Weapons. H V - r- 2 Tasked with ordering, storing and delivering ordnance to CVW-8, "Weps" saw a marked increase in each of these areas beginning January 17, the day the allied forces commenced the air campaign against Iraqi military targets. "In this kind of environment, Weps is extremely busy 24 hours a day," said WTCS CSWJ Ronald Swaim.. X The department includes seven separate divisions manned by 263 highly- trained professionals. T 2 j G-1 Division is divided into two basic areas - thehangar deck handling crews and the flight deck handling crews. The hangar deck crew brings the ordnance from the magazines and tums it over to the flight deck crew. The flight deck crew stores the ordnance in the "bomb fann" near the flight deck and then issues it out to squadron ordnancemen for uploading onto the aircraft. G-2 Division handles the ship's small arms and small arms ammunition. This includes helping to man and train on the ship's .50-caliber machine guns. The.50 cals are in place to help protect the ship from small craft attack' and low and slow fliers. G- 2 also fulfills the vital job of maintaining and repairing magazine sprinkler systems. G-3 Division handles the actual assembly of bombs and missiles. They are also involved in storing and maintenance of the ordnance they build. C- S G-4 Division is in charge of weapons elevators aboard TR. They provide for all of the operation and maintenance of these vital elevators. V , G-5. Division takes care of accounting for ordnance inventory. They also coordinate all the building and moving of ordnance aboard TR. G-5 also includes the Weapons Department office, which is responsible for the administrative functions of the department. I l ' EOD, or Explosive Ordnance Disposal, does just that. Their specialty involves disanning ordnance and making it safe forhandling or making it possible to safely destroy the ordnance. The menof EOD are also qualified divers who go into the water when the situation calls for it. - e "W" Division's responsibilities are in the areas of handling and storing special weapons. Another special division in Weapons is TR's Marine Detachment. V A "Without all of our ordnance, the airplanes aboard would just be a regular airline," said GMG3 .loseph Patterson. He has a special pride in what he does. His brother, Spec. 4 Thomas Patterson, also participated in Operation Desert Storm with the Arrny's 82nd Airbome. C "If we weren't here, the ship wouldn't be here. That's true about any division or squadron aboard. But with that in mind, we feel a huge responsibility and duty to do our jobs very well," Senior Chief Swaim said. f . S "Our morale is not only good, it's really increasing. The guys are working 18- hour days but they don't mind. Theyknow that our ordnance is going to protect our guys in the Army 'and Marine Corps out in the desert," said AO2 Charles Himes of Canyonville, Oregon. C I ' - V X "It also makes us feel proud to know the Americanlpeople are behind us," Himes added. "It's never fun to leave your ,wife and loved ones, but we have a j ob to do and we're S0ingtodoit.7' 2 I . ' Q V f ' I . N . ,- i-an ..

XX Whenever a civilian has an earache or back pains, they will probably make a visit to the local hospital or doctor's office. For a sailor at sea it is exactly the same. Aboard TR, that most vital role is filled by the professionals of Medical Department. . The carrier's Medical Department is headed by the Senior xMedical Officer Capt. Ronald Lentz, who is also a flight surgeon. In that capacity he meets the specialized needs of pilots and aviation personnel. In addition to Capt. Lentz, TR Medical also includes 6 other doctors, l nurse, 1 Medical Administrator, 1 Physical Assistant and 47 enlisted Hospital Corpsmen. It is interesting to note that when almost any other division or department in TR holds some type of drill, medical personnel are invariably involved. r - A "When you come to TR's Medical Department, what you have is theequivalent to a small county hospital. We can do anything from a simple blood test, to an enzyme test that can diagnose a heart attack, and even surgery. Basically we can do it all," said HM1 Bob Resino, Assistant Leading Petty Officer of Medical. I . ' Many of the Corpsmen in Medical have specialties, as well as the regular medicalitrainin g. In fact, there are over 50 subspecialties for the Corpsman rating in the Navy. Aboard TR that includes x9 ray technicians, operating room technicians, lab technicians, preventive medicine technicians and even bio-medical technicians to name just a few. Along with their duties in Medical, these men perform a varity of functions around the ship as well. TR Corpsmen man a medical training team and 2 medical response teams. There are also Corpsmen present during such evolutions as flight' quarters, underway replenishments and small weapons familiarization firing on the fantail. f'We also support the battle group. Many of the smaller ships don't have doctors but they may have an independent duty Corpsman or IDC. If he has a question or concern about one of his patients, the first thing he'll do is give a call to TR Medical," HM1 Resino said. TR's Medical facilities can admit up to 67 in-patients, peoplel admitted for medical care and treatment. These experts see the patients, evaluate them and if they are able, render care aboard ship and retum them to work when the patient is able. a "We are the primary medical delivery system aboard TR. The Navy's number one asset is its people and we try to get our guys back to health and back to work as soon as it is safe for them. We always have to take care of our people and that's what Navy medicine is all about," HMI Resino said. r "In addition to treating a patient, we also have to consider where they workj' said CWO4 Roger Ware, Medical's Physical Assistant. "We have to match the person with the proper medicine and treatment according to where they do their job. For instance, for guys up on the flight deck, or working heavy machinery, we don't want them getting drowsy during their work because of some medication they took." if Every moming at sickcall, held from 0730 to 0900, as many as 60 to 65 patients visit Medical, on the average. The quality health care they receive is a direct result of the teamwork and dedication of the Medical staff. "If you look at this department, from the Senior Medical Officer on down, you can see that we have a lot of people, from a lot of different places with a lot of different skills. One person by himself can't provide quality health care. It takes the entire team together with the skill, caring and ob- servation to care for our shipmates," HMI Resio concluded. . 7 159' 6 , 5' H Capt.

The tasks of the Navigation Department include the accurate plotting of the ship's course and position, recommending courses to be steered and procurement and maintenance of navigational charts, publications and equipment. . , The Quartermasters use radar and other electronic equipment to find their way. "We use a lot of modem equipment to getthe ship where she needs to go," said QM3 Bryant S. Dalton. "But we never forget the basics." V I ' A p . If needed the Quartermasters can set aside all of the modem equipment and rely on celestial bodies such as the stars, sun, moon and other planets. , I 1 "The oldest way to navigate the shipis by shooting the stars with a sextantf' said QM3 Charles T. Mason. "The way we do this is by shooting known celestial bodies and putting that input into a mathematical formula to plot the ship's location." S T With all of the fancy equipment used to navigate the ship, visual is-still considered the best. "We use a telescopic alidade to shoot bearing to objects such as a building or lighthouse, to get a correct fix of the ship," said QM1 Brian Barber. - ' The Quartermasters keep a consistent track of the ship's course and speed on navigational charts, which are kept for the life of the ship. "We are responsible for keeping historical files of the ship's position and movementsy These files are the ship's deck logs and they're sent to Washington D.C., for historical reasons,', said YN2 Roger Timms. The Quartermasters are assistants to the Officer of the Deck COODJ and his watch team on all matters pertaining to the safe navigation of the ship. i .The tasks of the Signal Division .include providing the command with effective visual communications, as well as maintaining an accurate surface picture for the OOD and embarked staff. In addition, the signalmen assist the Navigator in rendering appropriate honors and ceremonies as described in U.S. Navy regulations. , "Our mission is to provide visual communications," said SMCSCSWJ K. C. McGrath, NS Division LCPO. "We pass tactical information to all units within range to assist TR in its safe navigation. We also exchange administrative information to support battle group operations." The signalmen use flashing light, flag hoists and semaphore to exchange thismessage traffic, While deployed, si gnalmen maintain a 24 hour watch at sea and at anchorage to support TR's mission. They report all surface contacts and identify whether they are merchant vessels, friendly or hostile ships. ' a ,: -J. . ' W I zmuufg. Q-..:..1..f.:'.4 ann-v f.1 .

They are, of course, the men of TR's Marine Detachment. , ' y Many people do not realize 9 that Marines are stationed aboard naval vessels. However, the job they provide is a vital one. I I I ' I , ' "Our job is basically security. Security of the ship and security of the weapons and weapons systems on board," said Sgt. Ilandis Smith. Sgt. Smith serves as one of three Sergeants of the Guard for TR's Marine' Detachment. Security provided by. the Marines takes many forms and is far-reaching. One way is to man 50-caliber machine guns to protect the ship from small boat attack. Two Marines at a time man the guns 24 hours a day. During medical emergencies, when the health and well-being of a shipmate is at stake, TR's Marines provide security and manpower as stretcher bearers to help make the evolution ' go as quickly and as smoothly as possible. In addition, they are in charge of the ship's Flag Bridge and participate in a program called the "walking bloodbankf' This program helps provide the correct blood typein case of emergencies. ' However, these are only the duties on the "Navy side of the house." They must also continue to train for their duties in the Marine Corps. This training includes testing marksmanship skills from the fantail of the ship, fast roping from a helicopter onto TR's flight deck and even hand-to-hand combat training. "Even though we rare on a ship at sea, we still continue to train as Marines. You just never know what you'll encounter and we always strive to be ready for anything," Smith said. This training is important for the present as well as the future. The tour of duty aboard a ship for a Marine is 24 months. After that time they return to the Fleet Marine Force for new orders according to their job description known as an MOS. "Being assigned to a ship is special duty for a Marine," said Smith, who has been aboard the carrier for 19 months. "I'm very proud of being a Marine and I consider it an honor to serve aboard TR". "There is no satisfaction like that of being a Marine," said Lance Cpl. Chris Lane. "I think it's pretty striking to think we are part of history with our participation in Operation Desert Storm," Lance Cpl. Lane added. That Sentiment runs deep in TR,s Marine Detach- ment as well as the ship in general. . "I believe in what we're doing here with Operation Desert Storm," said Lance Cpl. Thomas Manghane. "Sometimes I think about how much I miss my family but this is what I chose to do and they all suppoit me in that. I'm really proud to be here." - f v ' '- Lge T--f"'g ' J . V. m . .-f..

X The mission of Fighter Squadron Forty-one CVF-415 'is to intercept and destroy enemy aircraft and airborne missiles in all weather conditions in .order to establish and maintain air superiority within a designated area. . ' VF-41,s distinguished history began on 1 June 1945, when it was commis- sioned at NAS Chincoteague, Virginia. Flying the Chance-Vought F-4U Corsair, the squadron moved to NAS Norfolk in 1947. In July of 1948, the squadron was designated Fighter Squadron Three-B and in September of that year became Fighter Squadron Forty-One. VF-41 made early deployments to the Medliterranean aboard USS Franklin Roosevelt and USS Midway from September 1948 to January 1950. InJanuary of 1949, ,VF-41 moved its home base to NAS Jacksonville, Florida. Decommissioned for a short period of time- following the January 1950 cruise, the Black Aces were recommissioned at NAS Oceana, Virginia. The squadron's last major deployment was to the Mediterranean Sea in December, 1986. As that deployment ended in June, 1987, the Black Aces left USS N imitz at her new home port on the West Coast and returned to NAS Oceana to join the newly commissioned USS Theodore Roosevelt. VF-411 spent 1988 with short deployments and working up the Air Wing Eight!Theodore Roosevelt team in preparation for their maiden voyage together. A u i ..-- i, H' , ' f' .f.

'Q l Fighter Squadron Eighty-Four CVF-841 is a fleet fighter squadron flying the F- 14A Tomcat. VF-84's mission includes fleet air defense, strike escort, and maritime air superiority. Additionally, using the F-14A TARPS pod, the squadron is tasked with fleet tactical air photo reconnaissance. ' VF-84 traces its roots to VF-17 of WWII fame. In only 67 days those Jolly Rogers and their F-4U Corsairs destroyed 154 enemy aircraft and sank seven ships, a record unsurpassed throughout the war. V With the arrival of the jet age and the subsequent .need for additional fighter squadrons, VF-84 was commissioned on July l, 1955 at NAS Oceana, Virginia. The squadron adopted the nickname "Vagabonds" and flew the FJ-3 until 1959 when the Fury was replaced by the F-8U Crusader. During this period, the squadron adopted the Jolly Rogers nickname and the Skull 8: Crossbones insignia. In 1964, the squadron commenced transition to the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom Il and flew several versions of this capable and versatile aircraft for the next 12 years. During this era, VF-84 made six cruises aboard two carriers, including a combat deployment aboard USS Independence in which the squadron flew 2,700 hours and 1,507 combat sorties with over 7,090 strike missions against targets in North and South Vietnam. t , The final F-4N was transferred from the squadron in March 1976 and aircrews began transition training for the F-14 Tomcat. Completing the training and accepting the arrival of their first Tomcats a year later, the Jolly Rogers joined Carrier Air Wing Eight aboard USS Nimitz for the first Mediterranean deployment in the F- 14. In May 1989, VF-84 completed eight years of accident free flying. VF-84 completed its last USS Nimitz deployment in June 1987. Today, VF-84 continues its long tradition of excellence as a member of CVW-Eight with USS Theodore Roosevelt. .

I A -' A Since its inception barely a month after the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, the squadron has flown six types of aircraft CSBD Dauntless, TBM Avenger, AD-4 Skyraider, A-4 Skyhawk, A-7 Corsair II and the FIA-18 Hornetj. VFA-15 has operated from the decks of 14 different aircraft carriers, making 28 major deployments to all parts of the world. Few naval aviation units can match the 48 years of service to the Navy and our country in the proud "None Finer" tradition of the VFA-15 Valions. . Since 1969, the Valions have made eight Mediterranean cruises, and a South American cruise with CVW-6, five of which were aboard USS Franklin Delano Roosev- elt CCVA-425. The 1975 Mediterranean cruise marked VFA-15's eleventh and final cruise with the "Rosie". ' ' , After returning in June 1986, the Valions began transition training in the FIA-18 Hornet. The Homet is an all-weather, high performance tactical aircraft. It is a single seat, twin-engine aircraft which can perform fighter, attack, and reconnaissance mis- sions. In October 1986, Attack Squadron 15 was redesignated Strike Fighter Squadron 15. I ' The Valions accepted their first FIA-18 Hornet in January 1987, and transition was completed in June 1987. In September, VFA-15 joined CVW-8. In calendar year 1988, Strike Fighter Squadron 15 was once again awarded the COMNAVAIRLANT Battle Efficiency "E" Award. , if The Valions departed Norfolk, 'Virginia 30 December 1988 for their first Homet cruise to the Mediterranean. Participating in MED 1-89 the squadron retumed from the Theodore Roosevelt's maiden cruise fTR's Great AdventureJ on 30 June 1989. Calendar year 1990 was a demanding year for the Valions, both at sea and ashore. In January VFA-15 found themselves operating from the deck of the Navy's newest aircraft carrier, USS Abraham Linqoln CCVN-725. Returning to CVN-71, the Valions next at sea period was Refresher Training, Advance Phase then F1eetEx 1-91. Ashore, the Valions led the way with a shore based CVW-8 strike, won the CLAW-1 Bombing Derby for the fourth consecutive year, qualified on all its inspections, AD- MAT, NWAI, and Corrosion Contro1lMaterial Condition Inspection. 1990 marked the sixth consecutive year withzero mishaps for thesquadron, equating to 22,000 accident free flight hours. On 26 December, VFA-15 departed NAS Cecil Field for thesquad- ron's MediterraneanlMidd1e East deployment in support of "Operation Desert Shield". VFA-15 dropped over one million pounds of ordnance, flew 525 combat sorties accumu- lating over 1,200 hours of combat time in support of Operation Desert Storm. n 'milf lk M5 3 we V 1'1Z1a'."J3i1 CDR Joseph Capalbo Executive Offcer e f" 'Q BMCM Larry Linde C0 mand Master Chief - f .

Strike Fighter Squadron Eighty-Seven CVFA-875 was established as Attack 'Squadron 87 CVA-875 on 1 February 1968 at NAS Cecil Field, Florida. VA-87 -was the firstLight Attack Squadron to fly the A-7B Corsair II. The squadron flew their first combat mission in March 1969 from USS 'Ticonderoga operating out of Yokosuka, Japan. ' l . The squadron operated aboard USS Franklin Roosevelt, USS America, and USS Independence in support of U.S. interests during the Arab-Israeli conflict in 1973, numerous NATO exercises, the evacuation of Lebanon in 1976, nine Mediterranean deployments, an Indian, Ocean deployment during the 1980-81 Iranian hostage crisis, the 1982 Mediterranean deployment in support of the U.S. Peacekeeping Forces in Lebanon, the PLO evacuation, and a 1983 Caribbean-North Atlantic deployment which included frontline action in Grenada and Lebanon. The Golden Warriors completed flight operations in the A-7E Corsair in March 1986, and were officially redesignated Strike Fighter Squadron 87 on 1 May 1986. VFA-87 then began training in the F!A-18 Homet with VFA-106. The Homet is designed to fly at speeds in excess of ,Mach 1.8 and can deliveras much punch as an entire squadron of WWII fighters. The Golden Warriors took delivery of their first new Homet in November 1986. A- I ' VFA-87 first deployed. aboard TR as a temporary member of Carrier Air Wing One in 1987. That deployment marked the first time since February of 1985 that Golden Warrior aircraft had made 'a carrier arrested landing. In October 1987, VFA-87 joined the world's most powerful sea-going air wing, Carrier Air Wing Eight, aboard TR. In December of 1988, VFA-87 flew aboard TR for their first Mediterranean cruise with the FIA-18 Homet. They now fly the most advanced tactical aircraft, in the most powerful air wing, aboard one of the newest and largest nuclear powered aircraft carriers in the world.

S 'NIH J '5:0i,. ' Attack Squadron Thirty-six, reestablished in l987, still shares the heritage and traditions of the previous VA-36, originally established as VF- l02 on I May 1952 and redesignated VA-36 on I July l955. The Roadrunners flew the A-4 Skyhawk as a vital part of Carrier Air Wing Three aboard USS Saratoga. ln l965, VA-36 shifted to Carrier Air Wing Nine aboard USS Enterprise and, in December of that year, flew their first combat mission into Vietnam. Accumulating over 3,000 combat hours, the crews of VA-36 earned l7l Air Medals, one Bronze Star and several Distinguished Flying Crosses and Navy Commendation Medals. V ,VA-36 then rejoined the Atlantic Fleet as part of Carrier Air Wing Six, completed two Mediterranean deployments, and transferred to Carrier Air Wing Ten aboard USS lntrepid. ln July l968, during an around-the-world deployment, VA-36 engaged in their second combat excur- sion to Vietnam, logging over 4,200 sorties. VA-36 finally became part of Carrier Air Wing Seventeen aboard USS Forrestal, completed one more Mediterranean deployment in July l970. and was disestablished on l August 1970. The fierce spirit of the famed Roadrunners was rekindled on 6 March I987 when the current Attack Squadron Thirty-six was established. Flying the Navy's premier all-weather attack aircraft, the Grumman A-6E TRAM Intruder, the "Heartless" airmen of VA-36 joined Carrier Air Wing Eight aboard USS Theodore Roosevelt and set the pace as an integral part of the attack arm of the Navy's newest operational nuclear powered aircraft carrier. - In 1989, the Roadrunners completed their maiden Mediterranean deployment aboard TR, flying more than 1,200 missions while accumulating over 2,300 flight hours and l,284 arrested landings. In the latter half of the year, a comprehensive turn around training program was initiated. ln November, VA-36 was awarded the overall first place trophy in the l989 Intruder Derby bombing competition. - 1 In 1990, the Roadrunners continued their turn around training program, included were a shakedown cruise aboard USS Abraham Lincoln, an airwin g weapons exercise in Fallon, Nevada, and several fleet exercises aboard TR. - The squadron deployed to the Arabian Gulf on December 28th, l990 in support of Operation Desert Shield. They arrived in the region as the first shots of the Gulf War were sounded. On station to bolster Pacific Fleet assets, the Roadrunners flew 578 sorties and dropped l,l84,000 pounds of ordinance during Operation Desert Storm. The Roadrunnners were a vital element ensuring the' peace after cessation of hostilities. The men of the squadron enjoyed port visits to Dubai, U.A.E.g Haifa, Israel, and Rhodes, Greece during their time at sea. They continue to set the pace in Air Wing Eight and in the Medium Attack community. , 1' 'Q . .. - A J 'f f VV4:-V: '?f '..'?'L. i"a.:'t- V'..3.ioe5...3Z4J L1 5.,.ga-f1f2,LgLLf..2ffe Qzjjit ii1.fgl..zl'Tfi,m 'f"'qe.:v 145 , V w -wav 544.5 ' CDR Tom Deyke E.i'ec1V1Iiw' Officer .W tif' si fx it mf SN f If QAQZN .B was wi Sami f Htl ' - V - V 3' riziwrza' -- - '- 'T ' ' ' ' 1 " .

Originally named VT-74, thesquadron was commissioned in May 1945. - ' Redesignated VA-25 in September 1948, the squadron"s aviators deployed aboard many different carriers, including USS CABOT, USS CORAL SEA, USS FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT, USS CHAMPLAIN and USS INTREPID. In July 1959, the "Fighting Ti gers" were designated Attack Squadron Sixty-Five, and became the third operational A-6A squadron when they transitioned to the Intruder in 1965. i - ' I 1 Aboard USS CONSTELLATION, the "Fighting Tigers" made their first deployment to the Westem Pacific in May 1966. Flying 1,239 sorties over Vietnam, VA-65 expended more than 10 million pounds of ordnance. The "Fighting Ti gers" made one more deployment to the Vietnam theater in 1968, aboard USS KITTY HAWK. From 1970 to 1977, VA-65 made six deployments to the Mediterranean aboard Uss INDEPENDENCE, working extensively with NATO nations in operations from the Eastem Mediterranean to the Arctic Circle. INDEPENDENCE was in the Mediterranean as a ready force during several intemational conflicts, including the 1970 Jordanian-crisis, the 1973 Yom Kippur War and the 1975 Cyprus clash. I VA-65 embarked in USS DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER in 1978. In July of 1979, the squadron began accepting new production models of the A-6E aircraft. The "Fighting Tigers" deployed to the Indian Ocean for eight I months in 1980, the North Atlantic in 1981 and made Mediterranean deployments in 1982 and 1983. In September of 1986, Attack Squadron Sixty-Five joined Carrier Air Wing THIRTEEN for duty aboard USS CORAL SEA, beginning a six month deployment in the Mediterranean in 1987. In 1989, the squadron accompanied CORAL SEA on the ship' s final deployment, where they participated in Lebanon contingency operations and the Beirut embassy evacuation. I A 0 In September 1989, VA-65 joined CVW-8 aboard TR. During Operation Desert Storm, the "Fighting Tigers" were credited with effectively rendering the Iraqi Navy useless by sinking 22 Iraqi naval vessels during the conflict. With deadly accuracy, the Tigers delivered numerous laser guided bombs while effectively "knocking the lights out" over southeastern Iraq.' Attack Squadron Sixty- Five's performance during the war was brilliant as they dropped more ordnance per aircraft, flew more sorties and logged more combat hours than any other attack squadron in the U.S. Navy. 1 VA-65 has always been on the forefront of the American defense policy, ready and willing to carry out the projection of power and represent the "Spearhead of the Attack". As one of the Navy's most decorated squadrons, the "World Famous Fighting T i gers" of Attack' Squadron Sixty-Five stand constantly ready to carry out their mission ANYTIME, ANYWHERE, ANY WEATHER. aims' 69' Q! . .u. 1 1, CDR Tom Ross Executive Ojfcer i'l'!gEq1 PRCM Gerald F risinger ' Command Master Chief .XX q f- ' 1 .a1.

Flying the E-2C Hawkeye, the squadron's mission is to function as an airbome tactical command and control center for offensive and defensive fleet opera- tions. It accomplishes these tasks by providing early waming and aircraft control through data link and voice communications. Q VAW-124 was established on 1 September 1967, and nicknamed the Bullseye Hummers. They have deployed aboard USS Independence, USS America, and USS Nimitz for a total of ten deployments. , - i VAW-124 has participated in numerous exercises around the world and has also sent detachments for drug interdiction in the Caribbean. On 1 March 1988, VAW-124 embarked in USS Theodore Roosevelt and proceeded to the Puerto Rican Operating Area for refresher training. This was the first full test ofthe "National Air Wing" concept. The completion of 1988 marked 17 years of accident-free flying consisting of 32,200 flight hours for VAW-124. VAW-124 embarked in TR for their 1 lth major deploy- ment on 30 December 1988. They attribute the overall success of the cruise to the combined efforts of VAW-124 crewmembers and TR. D-133' - ., Q if Q .

The squadron embarked aboard USS Bunker Hill and USS' Homet and saw action throughout WWII. The postwar period saw its designation and tasking changed' several times until it was finally designated VS--24 and assigned its present ASW mission. I I The squadron exists solely to ensure the accomplishment of the Navy's primary mission, to maintain control of the seas and deny its use to the enemy in a wartime situation by countering the submarine threat from a fully mobile base, the aircraft carrier. l , ,Q During the 33 years in existence, the squadron has flown five differ- ent aircraft types fonn 15 different carriers throughout the worldfs oceans and seas. The last major change for the Scouts occurred in August 1975 when they transitioned from the S-2G Tracker to the new S-3A Viking. i g p In October 1987, VS-24 embarkedaboard TR conducting advanced phase training in preparation for the "Great Adventurefi cruise. ffs.2t'lfkf,.

Q, .1 W X X Helicopter Antisubmarine Squadron Nine CHS-91 was established on liune 1956 at NAS Quonset Point, Rhode Island. HS-9 was the Navy's first all4weather helicopter squadron. They began with five HSQI Sea Horse helicopters flown and supported by 20 officers and 100 enlisted men. At its peak in 1964, HSV-9 was operating 16 Sikorsky, SH-3A Sea King helicopters with a complement of 50 officers and 260 enlisted. . 1 A After 12 years of dedicatedservice to the fleet, HS-9 was dislestablished in October 1968. On 4 June 1976, the Sea Griffins of HS-9 were reestablished in ceremonies at NAS Jacksonville, Florida, with a force of. eight Sikorsky SH-3H Sea Kings. x I ' A They have deployed aboard USS Essex, USS America, and USS Nimitz, with deployments to the Mediterranean, Indian Ocean and North Atlantic. They were the first ever HS squadron to win the Sixth Fleet "Hook-Ein" Award for ASW excellence. Q A x ' October of .1987 marked the beginning of the HS-91, CVWIIT R team when 'garden CDR C harles Litz 'Executive Ojjicer they departed Norfolk for shock trials. HS-9's primary mission is Antisubmarine Warfare, Search and Rescue support, and photoplatform support. y The "Great Adventure" cruise saw HS-9 pull 16 British citizens from rough seas in the Mediterranean on April 13.

Based at NAS Whidbey Island, Washington, VAQ-141 is under the administrative direc- tion of Commander Medium Attack Tactical Electronic Warfare Wing, U.S. Atlantic Fleet. ' . VAQ- 141 's primary mission is to provide active electronic counter- measures CECMJ support to protect the air wing and carrier battle group by jamming enemy radars andcommunications. Its secondary mission is to provide electronic surveillance for fleet operations. Finally, VAQ-l4l is responsible for providing active electronic jamming for surface and air radar operator electronic counter-countermeasures CECCMJ training. ' The EA-6B Prowler's primary weapon, the ALQ-99, can either jam or assign targets for the high speed anti-radiation missile CHARMJ. The aircraft can extemally carry pods, HARMs or drop tanks on the five stations depending on the mission. ' S Sensitive surveillance receivers' in the tail fin pod are capable of detecting radars at long ranges. Emitter infonnation feedsinto a central mission computer that processes the signals for display and recording. Detection, identification, direction-finding, and jamming-set-on-sefquence is performed by the crew. J A . VAQ-l4l is composed of 28 officers and 186 enlisted personnel. The seven aircrews .consist of one pilot and three electronic countermea- surest Officers CECMOSJ. Two ECMOS operate the ALQ-99 system from the aft cockpit and can assign, adjust, or monitor the jammers. A third ECMO in the right front seat is responsible for communications, navigation, missile fire control and defensive .electronic countermeasures.

VRC-40 is homeported at the Naval Air Station, Norfolk, VA. Maintaining and flying the squadronis aircraft are 240 en- listed and 40 officers. Unlike most squadrons, VRC-40 does provide around the clock fleet support, operating from bases as far north as Norway, down the Eastern Seaboard and Gulf coast, throughout the Caribbean, and in Central and South America. The RAWHIDES have also engaged in detachments in Southeast Asia and the Persian Gulf when duty was called. While speed and efficiency are requisite to completion of the squadron's mission, safety has always been of paramount importance. Every year VRC-40 carries over l million pounds of cargo and mail and effect over 100 carrier arrested landings. Since commissioning, no passenger has ever been injured flying with VRC-40. Astronauts Alan Shepard and Scott Carpenter, Senator Robert F. Ken- nedy, former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara and entertainer Whitney Houston have all flown with the RAWHIDES. This outstanding record of mission accomplishment reflects our motto, "Service to the Fleet with Safety, Dependabil- ity and Courtesy.' The RAWHIDES pilot the C-2A Greyhound. This Grumman Repro- cured aircraft is a carrier-based transport capable of moving high-priority cargo and passengers for Carrier On-board Delivery. This aircraft carries the largest cargo payload of any COD aircraft. Cargo security is facilitated by a cage system that can restrain the cargo during a condition of 20 g's forward, and from the loads encountered during catapult launch and arrested landing.
