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 strife, TARAWA hellcopters provide a unique capability for assisting the rapid V. evacuation and protection for Amerlcan c1t1zens T e late Fleet Admiral Chester W.

TARAWA Departs on WestPac '92 It seemed like only yesterday the USS TARAWA had.pulled in from WestPac for Operation Desert Shield!Storm and once agaln the day had come for all of us to say good-bye to our loved ones for yet another West Pac. TARAWA set out for the exotic ports of the Far East and the un- 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 as soon as possible. iw' f V am: ,"' D 4 0 V12 . -,...-e.......... a fFar Leftj PH3 Orr poses for a shot with his wife and daughter. fLeftj Two expecting mothers wait as the ship gets ready to pull out. fflbovej CDR Brown pats his son on the head as his wife looks on in the background. fBelowj RM3 Morehouse kisses his daughter good-bye. - if bye with a banner. fAbovejAD1 Scott gives his wife a hug before boarding the ship. fBelowj TARAWA sets out for the open ocean as she gets ready to pass under the Coronado Bay Bridge.

TARAWA's Fair Lady 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- try. I 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. She graced the crew with a fBel0wj Audrey Hepburn speaks t - - t th h ' the Sailors and Marines of USS v1s1t o e angar bay and TARAWA in the H B was glad to let the angar ay' crewmembers get snapshots of y themselves taken with her.

The hangar bay is V-3's terrain and their jobis to see that it's vast space is utilized to its full potential. Fuel is the lifeblood of a machine and being able to provide uncontaminated fuel to TARAWA's machinery is the job of V-4. V-4's quality assurance people sample and test fuel before it is passed through centrifugal purifi- ers and fLu'ther filtered before it is pumped topside to thir- sty helos, landing craft, yellow gear, and support equip- ment.

Quality Control, Production Control and Quality Assurance are three vital workcenters necessary 1 l for TARAWA to maintain her high aircraft performance levels. When an aircraft needs structural repairs, the men V of IMO2 division are called upon to make the necessaiy l 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 operating armament control systems. Aviation Electrician's Mates and Aviation Electronic's Technicians of IMO3 all make their contributions, keeping TARAWA's avionics equipment performing at a 4.0 level. To operate aircraft effectively, support equipment is necessary. IMO4 is TARAWA's Ground Support Equipment CGSEJ center. Aviation Support Equipment Technicians work in GSE and perform maintenance on , the forklifts, manlifts, cranes and tractors, Also known as "Yellow Gear." A 1 F .

Constant attention is paid to weather charts, upper air baloons, teletype data, Windspeed, air pressure, temperature, humidity and many other factors. The Aerographer's Mates provide TARAWA with weather information for all operations and a heads up on any storms. i i The Air Traffic Controllers of Helicoper Direction CenterCHDCJ keep ever vigilant eyes on the skies around 1 the ship, maintaining safe flight patterns and keeping track of each aircraft within the scope of their instruments. 1 Carrier-controlled approaches and landings are a significant responsibility and the steady crew completed many during WestPac. The crew of OI division haunt TARAWA's Combat Information CenterCCICj on a twenty-four hour basis, keeping ongoing plans and missions running smoothly. Navy Tactical Data SystemCNTDSJ, radar scopes, air-inter- cept consoles and other sophisticated gear are just the nuts and bolts - it's the brain power and the super tracking skills ofthe OS's that make TARAWA's missions successful. TARAWA's electronic warriors are responsible for guaranteeing the ship's ready knowledge of "hostiles and friendlies", and for going after threats with a bevy of j amming and detection gear. Each contact is carefully moni- tored, electronically probed and surveyed before a judgement of its nature is made and the Commanding Officer is , notified. The Journalists, Interior Communication Electricians and Photographer's Mates make up TARAWA's multi- 5 media, training and entertainment division which provides the crew with daily news, GMT, radio, television program- g ming and photographic services. Another one of OX's big responsibilities is the crew's cruisebook. ' The Joint Intelligence Center provides analysis of photographs taken by the photo lab and assesses sensitive information gathered from various DoD sources.
