— £-. Tlie ship was awarded the Com- mander Naval Surface Force Pacific Efficiency award for the cycle end- ing Jime 30, 1989 and proudly dis- plays the followiiig awards: Missile Gold " E " -ninth consecutive award; CIC Gold " E " -seventh consecu- ti ' e; Electronic Warfare " E " -fovirth consecutive; Damage Control " DC " - fourth consecutive; and two con- sccutixe communications green " C " awards. Qi November 8, 1991 HALSEY left for yet another West-Pac. Their mission was to patrol the Persian Gulf, this time they were cautious since the area was still considered a war zone from the Gulf War. HALSEY left less tlian a year later for one more West-Pac around Ta- hiti, back to the Arabian Gulf and homeward bound stoppirig at the usual stops and visiting Bali, Indo- nesia. Though she remained a si- lent figure duriiig the missile strike agaiiist Baghdad, she was quite involved and held her own out there with just a few other Navy xessels duriiig the aircraft carrier tumo ' er. But even the best has an ending, on Sept 23, 1993 the Captaiii aruiouiiced that she would be decommissioned iri the next few months. Ariother proud Na tradition would end. She served her country well; built for the Vieti " iam War, modified for the Cold War and repaired to do battle in the Arabian Gulf. After such a tiring tour of duty, she became out dated, old, incapable, rusty, and slow. But to the sailors tliat harbored witliin her hull, she was their only fortress, their home, in a strange Icind fighting for the freedom of others. With tliis kiiow ledge, she held firm even as death knocked on her hatch nimierous times. She will not be around much longer to serve in the world ' s finest Navy, but her memory wiU forever live on ill the minds of the sailors that once served onboard. The Crusades started back during the reign of England may centuries ago. The Gulf War was the Eleventh. To the HALSEY, this is her LAST CRUSADE . . .
