The border around the trident is red for the courage and patriotism of the Continental Army during that bleak winter at Valley Forge.

USS VALLEY FORGE CCG 505, the second ship to bear the name and the fourth ship of the Ticonderoga Class of AEGIS guided missile cruisers was commissioned on 18 January 1986 at Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, Mississippi. In April 1987, VALLEY FORGE made her initial deployment to the Western Pacific and Indian Oceans. This was the first time an AE- GIS cruiser deployed with a Pacific Fleet Battle Group. This was also the first battle group to conduct escort operations with reilagged Ku- waiti tankers COperation Earnest Willj. In December 1990, VALLEY FORGE returned to the Arabian Gulf in support of Operation Desert Shield!Storm. As Anti-Air Warfare Commander, the ship provided protection to coalition ships throughout the Arabian Gulf. In July 1992, VALLEY FORGE returned in support of Operations Southern Watch and Restore Hope. Off the coast of Somalia, she acted as the Air De- fense Zone Coordinator, Anti-Air Warfare Commander, and primary naval gunfire support ship. VALLEY FORGE left San Diego in April 1993 to conduct extended counter-narcotics operations. The operations culminated in the seizure of the motor vessel Sea Chariot approxi- mately 250 miles west of Colombia. An estimated five tons of cocaine was discovered aboard the motor vessel, the second-largest interdic- tion of cocaine in the history of the war on drugs. In August 1993, VALLEY FORGE began her first regular overhaul. After almost eight months in the shipyard, approximately 24 million dollars, and an estimated 868,000 ship's force man hour, she got underway in April 1994. December 1994 saw the ship deploy again in support of counter-narcotics operations. The first AEGIS Cruiser to spend five and a half months deployed in support of Law Enforcement Operations, VALLEY FORGE served as the Anti-Air Warfare Commander for the Joint Interagency Task Force East, providing air traffic surveillance and coordinating joint drug-interdiction efforts. Through the Panama Canal four times, her area of operation extended across the Caribbean Sea and the Eastern Pacific, from the West Coast of Northern Mexico to the outer banks of the Lesser Antilles. Once again, she saw great success in the interdiction and interception of America-bound drugs. Home ported in San Diego, California, VALLEY FORGE is a unit of Cruiser Destroyer Group One and part of the Naval Surface Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet. - Y -..A .,.. -... .. ..-.- .... . 0 ' Q., p 7 , I - t Commanding fficer Captain R.
