Uss TARAWA QLHA-19
Combining the functions of four amphibious ships, TARAWA carries helicop-
ters, Harrier jets, landing craft, tanks, jeeps, cargo and troops giving her almost a
single-handed capability to conduct landing-force operations.
In addition to her full-length flight deck, which can handle nine helicopters at
the same time, TARAWA has a large well-deck in her stern that enables her to dock
landing craft, including the new Landing Craft Air Cushioned CLCACJ, within her
hull. Trucks, jeeps, tanks or cargo can be delivered from storage areas via a system
of inclined ramps, elevators and conveyors to landing craft in the well deck or the
helicopters on the flight deck.
TARAWA's extensive electronics and communications system give task force
commanders a high degree of versatility in conducting an assault operation. The
heart of TARAWA's electronics is the Integrated Amphibious Warfare Data Computer
system, which not only keeps track of the landing force after it leaves the ship, but
also tracks enemy targets ashore
With current ' ormation, the t CIICHI data system can aim and f1re the ship'
ns o direct ire rom other ships It can also maintain air and surface tra ic
control not only for TARAWA's jets, h los, and landing craft, but for combat air
rol and task force supply Sh1pS as well area o o ' ' a u es o civi

evacuation and protection for Amerlcan c1t1zens
T e late Fleet Admiral Chester W. N1m1tZ once said, " e .S. Navy's erran
of mercy have saved more lives than its guns ever destroyed." TARAWA IS better
ited to hat kt an ny her ip af oat. W ether 1S a typhoon in Southeast
Asia, an earthquake or a hurricane at home, TARAWA can provide food, clothing,
shelter, medical care, communlcatlons and transportatlon for disaster victims Major
medical facllities aboard include four operating rooms, enslve re units, a blo d
bank, laboratories and wards for up to 300 patients
The present day TARAWA was built by the Ingalls Shlpbuilding Division of
1tton Industries at Pascagoula Mississippi and commissioned May 29 1976. u -
sequently TARAWA became and remalns a vital member of the Navy!Mar1ne Corps
team in the Pacific Fleet. TARAWA has long been a major factor in the projectlon
of U S presence overseas TARAWA deployed on her first Western PaC1f1C deploy-
ment in March 1979. The ship operated with temporarily assigned AV-8A Harrier
jump-jets in addition to an embarked helicopter squadron 1n a successful experiment
to determine the feasibility of operating jets from an amphibious assault ship Dur-
ing this deployment TARAWA rescued 400 Vietnamese refugees in the South China
composite squadron of 29 helicopters and six AV-8A s. The squadron was the first
in Marine Corps aviation history to conduct integrated helicopter operations' aboard
an LHA for an extended deployment of more than five months ,
TARAWA completed her third deployment to the Western Pacific and Indian
Ocean in November 1983. In September 1983 TARAWA was sent to the troubled
waters of the Eastern Mediterranean by order of President Reagan to support the
United Nations peacekeeping force in Beirut Lebanon.

ci ic deployment e ar icipated in var1ous'oin 1'1'11IaI' exerclses w' a ICS

peacetime ship movement since World War II, serving as flag ship for Commander,
Amphibious Group THREE and the FIFTH marine Expeditionary Brigade.
Between June and October 1990, TARAWA underwent a four-month repair avail-
ability at Long Beach Naval Shipyard.
Forty-eight days later she deployed to the Arabian Gulf as the flagship of a
thirteen-ship amphibious task force on 1 December, 1990 in support of Operations
Desert Shield!Storm. It was the largest such deployment since the Vietnam conflict
in 1965. Embarked were the Commander, Amphibious Group THREE and the FIFTH
Marine Expeditionary Brigade.
TARAWA participated in amphibious assault exercise Sea Soldier IV in Oman
in January as a rehearsal for the proposed landing into Kuwait. On 24 February
1991, TARAWA landed elements of the FIFTH Marine Expeditionary Brigade into
Saudi Arabia just south of the Kuwait border to join up with the FIRST Marine Expe
ditionary Force in liberating Kuwait.
In May, TARAWA departed the Arabian Gulf and was diverted to Bangladesh to
render twoiweeks of humanitarian assistance to typhoon victims in Operation Sea
Angel. The 2000 tons of rice delivered by TARAWA's helicopters and landing craft
helped more than 1.5 million inhabitants of southeast Bangladesh.

known occurrences ofthe Western Pacific.
During a West Pac, the only thing that keeps the Sailors and Ma-
rines going is the support from our loved ones so far away. Whether it
be a mother or father, wife or daughter, the cruise would last an eter-
nity with out those letters and care packages from home.
When mail call finally comes, smiles break out and people regain
their drive for another week. Deny us our letters and packages and one
can see the effect it has on the morale of the entire crew. It is the
same as the letters you recieve from us and if you were denied that
privelege, well you know.
So, as I board this ship, give me one last kiss and I will be home y

On September 21, 1992,
USS TARAWA was graced by a
visit from a very warm and
caring lady. Her name was 1
Audrey Hepburn and as we sat
off the coast of Somalia pro-
viding support for the Paki-
stani troop movements, she
was on the beach trying to
help the famine-stricken coun-
Her visit was just a
friendly one and the TARAWA
crewmembers reacted with a
wonderful gift of four-thou-
sand dollars that was raised in
less than 45 minutes. Her
happiness was visible as Capt.
Nigel E. Parkhurst presented 1
her with the check.

In January 1993, just four
short months later, Audrey

age of 64.
The day she visited will

Bruce suffered from primary pulmonary hypertension and needed a 3

When TARAWA ar-

situation, they jumped
at a chance do some
good for a young life.
By using the profit

was able to donate

cited and thankful.
The ship invited
Julie and her family to 3

repairs. Utiliizing the Power Plants, Airframes, Paraloft
and Oil Lab Workcenters, the Aviation Machinist's Mates
and Structural Mechanics work together as a team,
bringing the aircraft back on line.
Aircraft pilots depend on electronic equipment
for rapid communication, efficient navigation and

The men of CR Division are responsible for maintaining all electronic communications through the use of both
satellite technology and conventional means. With as many as 50 circuits operational at any one time, the technicians
work to keep communications with aircraft and small boats. Through the use of troubleshooting, testing, checking,
and sometimes even double-checking, they accomplish their various missions in a thouroughly professional manner.
CR division also controls the flow of messages that are sent to and from the ship. With teletypewriters opera-
tion non-stop, the division provides TARAWA with valuable information. Through messengers, typists and various
circuit operators, the communications area is well handled.
The signalmen of the CS Division represent one of the oldest rates in the Navy. Whether it be flashing light or 3
signal flag connnuncations, the Sigs are always there to accomplish the task, no matter what elements of Mother
Nature TARAWA is being Subjected to.

divisions such as, Legal, Safety, Security, Navaigation, Admin, Personnel, Career Counselor, Print Shop, 3-M, Post

It is easy to see that without Navigation!Executive department the ship would not be able to accomplish the
mission. From morale building mail to navigating the Pacific, the men of TARAWA's Nav!Exec department make a
great contribution to the ship and its mission.
