■ ORBIS TERRAUM DESCRIPTION > S PLAN IS HEMISPHAIR11S COMPRF.ffSA d " Of all the tools the Navy will employ to control the seas in any future war, the most useful of the combatant ships, the destroyer, will be sure to be there. Its appearance may be altered and it may even be called by another name, but no type - not even the carrier or the submarine - has such an assured place in the future navies. " Adm. C. W.

Captain John Young. The shield of the coat of arms is a tricolor design. The upper portion is per fess gules (scarlet) and the lower portion is independence blue. These are separated by a wavy bar in white. John Young was appointed in the Continental Navy from Philadelphia in 1776 and received his Captain ' s commission in October of that year. During much of his period of service he was associated with France who was then helping the fledgling American nation in their struggle for independence. This is represented by the golden fleur-de-lis in the upper part of the shield. In August of 1780, while enroute from French Martinique to the United States aboard the 18 gun sloop-of-war SARATOGA. Captain Young captured four enemy vessels after a severe engagement with two of them at one time. This deed is symbolized by the wavy bar with four stars. On 20 March 1781, Captain Young ' s ship, the SARATOGA, sailing in the company of French and American ships, became separated in a storm and was never seen again. The loss at sea of Captain Young and his crew is symbolized by the anchor without cable. The tricolor design alludes to the national colors of both the United States and her Revolutionary War Ally, France. The mast with sail hoisted is symbolic of the Continental sloop-of-war SARATOGA. Captain Young ' s last command. The coat of arms of the early American family Young is represented by the red rose on the sail. The ship ' s motto, " Prends La Mer Avec Courage, " meaning " Set Sail with Courage. " serves as an inspiration for the men who serve aboard the USS JOHN YOUNG. CAPTAIN JOHN YOUNG The USS JOHN YOUNG (DD-973) is the third destroyer named in honor of Captain John Young, Continental Navy (c. 1740-1781). a gallant and daring naval officer who lost his life in the struggle for independence during the American Revolution. John Young began his seafaring career at an early age in the colonial merchant marine. A master mariner before the first shots of the revolution were fired, the Continental Congress honored him with a commission and the command of the sloop-of-war INDEPENDENCE. Captain Young ' s mission was the protection of American shipping in the West Indies, and the raiding of British merchantmen whenever and wherever the opportunity might arise. While in command of the INDEPENDENCE. Captain Young delivered important diplomatic dispatches to the American delegation to France, headed by Doctor Benjamin Franklin, and participated in the first salute of recognition to the American flag from a foreign power. Captain Young went on to command two other Continental Navy vessels, the IMPERTINENT and the SARATOGA. In August of 1780. while enroute to home waters from the French colony of Martinique in the 18 gun sloop-of-war SARATOGA, Captain Young captured four enemy vessels after a close engagement with two of them simultaneously. Shortly after taking his nineteenth prize on March 20, 1781, Captain Young ' s career was suddenly cut short. While sailing in company with French and American ships, the SARATOGA became separated in a storm and was never seen again. #.k# % C0M^SNDI1G CDR KENNETH M.

TO END MEETING THE CHALLENGE . m JOHN YOUNG ' S challenge to per- form her vital mission during deployment to the Western Pacific is not easily met. All men in the crew must make personal sacrifices far more demanding than in any other profession. For those in the crew it means being separated from families and loved ones for many months while spending long and tedious hours at work ensuring their job is done efficiently, effectively and safely. Granted, it will not be easy, but JOHN YOUNG ' s " Second to none " crew pulls together with a degree of profes- sionalism and determination unsurpassed by any other destroyer in the Navy. A highly versatile destroyer. John Young ' s primary mission Is to operate offensively In Anti-Submarine Warfare role. ZtWl (Wit Meeting the challenge of refueling at sea, John Young ' s crew ensured this vital function was done professionally time and time again. The ability to refuel at sea adds an extra dimension to the effectiveness of a modern destroyer. Weapons systems were kept maintained at a high state of readiness. No matter what the challenge the men of the JOHN YOUNG are part of the JOHN YOUNG team and play an , important role in the defense of our country. . .

JOHN YOUNG is homeported in San Diego and assigned to Cruiser Destroyer Group One and Destroyer Squadron Two Three. Designed and built by Ingalls Shipbuilding Division of Litton Industries, Pascagoula, Mississippi, JOHN YOUNG is a member of the first major class of surface ships in the U.S. Navy to be powered by gas turbine engines. Four General Electric LM-2500 engines, marine versions of those used on DC-10 and C5-A aircraft, drive the ship at speeds in excess of 30 knots. Twin controllable-reversible pitch propellers provide JOHN YOUNG with a degree of maneuverability unique among warships her size. A highly versatile multi-mission destroyer, JOHN YOUNG is capable of operating independently or in company with Amphib ious or Carrier Task Forces. Her overall length is 563 feet and she displaces 8100 tons. JOHN YOUNG ' s primary mission is to operate offensively in an Antisubmarine Warfare role. JOHN YOUNG ' s sonar, the most advanced underwater detection and fire control system yet developed, is fully integrated in a digital naval tactical data system, providing the ship with faster and accurate processing of target information. Integration of the ship ' s digital gun fire control system into the NTDS provides quick reaction in the performance of the ship ' s mission areas of shore bombardment, surface warfare actions, and anti-aircraft warfare.

Space, weight, and electrical power reservations have been allocated in the design of the ship to provide for the addition of future weapons systems and enable JOHN YOUNG to keep abreast of future technology. Although built for maximum combat effectiveness, crew comfort and habitability are an integral part of JOHN YOUNG ' s design. Berthing compartments are spacious and the ship is equipped with amenities not usually found among destroyers, including a crew ' s lounge, library, hobby shop, and gymnasium. Automated weapons and engineering systems permit operation of the ship, the size of a World War II light cruiser, by a reduced crew of 22 officers. 14 chief petty officers, and 250 enlisted men. JOHN YOUNG is one of the world ' s most modern destroyers, possessing advanced propulsion systems and a fully integrated combat system, with space and weight reservation to ensure a formidable seaborne platform well into the future.

Admin Division is the center of all administration on board the USS JOHN YOUNG and is dedicated to serving the crew of 300. Though they are a small and unique group, the paperwork processed by these elite few is comparable to that of a mini ature Pentagon. These professionals maintain officer and enlisted service records, provide educational service and assistance, take care of legal matters, process transfers and receipts, separations, reenlistments, prepare OCR documents, execute advancements and promotions, and type tons of official letters and correspondence. The office " gang " spent many nights burning the " midnight oil " pounding those typewriters to ensure such things as the JOHN YOUNG " Familygram " was on the way to all our loved ones on time. Office Motto: " ON THE MOVE AND STAY ON TOP " . In addition to their own demanding job, people from the ship ' s office also fill many and varied other vital spots as members of the ship ' s combat teams during General Quarters and can be found almost anywhere during other at-sea evolutions such as replenishment-at-sea and flight-quarters. MEDICAL DEPARTMENT The medical department is charged with the responsibly of safe guarding the health of the crew and maintaining emergent medical material. The medical department also ducts heat stress surveys, a hearing conservation program sanitation inspections, gives immunizations, maintains the overall medical well-being of the ship. \i Hospita Corpsman (HM) Master-at-Arms (MA) MAI Michael Nagorr West Covina, CA MAC Charles R.

Sharkey Everett, Washington De»ert refueling MP DIVISION MP Division and the equipment they operate and maintain are what makes a Spruance Class Destroyer unique among naval ships. With the ability to accelerate from " dead in the water " to 30+ knots in less than one minute and then to " dead in the water " in two lengths of the ship, the " JOHN YOUNG " is one of the most maneuverable vessels afloat. The main propulsion division is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the ship ' s jet engines and generators. Keeping the engines running for 35,000 miles requires the teamwork and devotion to duty that is a trademark of " JOHN YOUNG " engineers. Like their counterparts on conventional ships, the gas-turbine specialists on the " JOHN YOUNG " must deal with gears, grease, springs, and other paraphernalia associated with mechanics, but unlike the engineers on other classes of ships, they are just as likely to be working with one of the hundreds of computer circuits which control the ship ' s automated propulsion plant. MP Division has some of the most talented technicians in the Navy, who specialize in such areas as gas turbines, electronics. and fuel chemistry. The ability of " JOHN YOUNG " to be ready and able to go anywhere anytime is a direct result of the closely knit team-within-the-team that is MP Division! ■8 v.

The primary responsibility of the electrical shop is to keep electrical power flowing throughout the ship. In addition their work consists of troubleshooting and repairing motors, controllers, and other electrical equipment throughout the ship. Almost everything that has a wire attached to it comes under the eye of the ship ' s electricians. The men assigned to the interior communications shop ensure the operation and maintenance of the ship ' s gyro, which sends course and other data to the ship ' s navigation and fire control equipment, and also maintain and repair all the communications circuits vital to the proper internal functioning of the JOHN YOUNG.

" A-gang " has traditionally been known as the home of the " Jacks-of-all-trades " . They have to be experts in air-conditioning, hydraulics, steam distilling systems, low and high pressure air, diesel engines, small boats . . . the list goes on and on. Meeting this challenge, the men of " A-gang " consistently proved that with the tools, the tech manual, and a measure of common sense and can-do spirit, all those things that could go wrong and did go wrong, could be fixed and fixed right.
