USSJOHN YOUNG is a modern, multi-mission warship capable of oper- ating as either an offensive strike warfare or an antisubmarine platform as its primary mission. The ship is the eleventh " Spruance " class destroyer, built by Ingalls Shipbuilding Division of Litton Industries, Pascagoula, MISS. It is a member of the first class of ships in the U.S. Navy to have gi turbine power. The four General Electric LM-2500 engines are marine ve sions of those used on DC-10 and C-5A aircraft and can drive the ship in excess of 30 knots. Twin controllable-reversible pitch propellers provide JOHN YOUNG with a degree of maneuverability unique among warships of its size (563 feet long and displacing 9000 tons). In its strike platform role, state-of-the-art computer and satellite technol- ogy allow JOHN YOUNG too launch up to 61 precision-guided TOMA- HAWK cruise missiles from its MK 41 Vertical Launch System (VLS) at land or sea targets as much as 650 miles distant. In its antisubmarine role, JOHN YOUNG employs a sonar that is the most advanced underwater detection and fire control system yet developed. In addition, JOHN YOUNG can embark two SH-60 LAMPS antisubmarine helicopters to pro- vide enhanced detection capability and extend the range of the ship ' s weapons systems. Other modern weapons systems include: two MK 45 lightweight 5-inch guns for use in shore bombardment, anti-air and anti- surface missions; Harpoon anti-ship missile system; two triple-barrel MK 32 torpedo tubes; and the NATO Sea Sparrow antiaircraft missile system. JOHN YOUNG is also fitted with the SLQ-32 Electronic Counter Mea- sures system and two Vulcan-Phalanx Close-In-Weapons Systems (CIWS) as a defense against missiles. Crew comfort and habitability are integral elements to JOHN YOUNG ' S design. Berthing compartments for over 300 crew members are spacious and the ship is equipped with amenities such as crew ' s lounge, library, gymnasium, class room, and ship ' s store. COAT OF ARMS CAPTAINJOHN YOUNG BIBLIOGRAPHY WMMiMmmlEuMmmMimmW] The USS JOHN YOUNG fDD 973) is the third destroyer named in honor of Captain John Young, Continental Navy (c 1740-1781), a gallant and dar- ing 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 " ' ' ,,,-.• ,. ..- of the revolution i commission and the command of the sloop-of-war INDEPENDENCE. Cap- tain Young ' s mission was the protection of American shipping in the West Indies, and the raidii opportunity might arise. While in command of the INDEPENDENCE, Cap- tain Young delivered important diplomatic dispatches to the American del- egation 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 IMPERTNENT 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, Capta ' " Young ' s career was suddenly cut short. While sailing in company " French and American ships, the SARATOGA became tepaaled in » s and was never seen again. ■ Jf ' ikx us S JOHN YOUNG (DD 973) ARABIAN GULF 1992 TABLE OF CONTENTS FAREWELL SAN DIEGO 4 OPERATIONS DEFT 45 CDR SCHULTZ 8 SUPPLY DEFT 56 CHANGE OF COMMAND 9 AIR DEFT 62 CDR CONWAY 10 LIBERTY PORTS 65 EXECUTIVE OFFICERS 11 DAILY LIFE 82 WARDROOM 12 STEEL BEACH PICNICS 86 MASTER CHIEF 15 PEOPLE 88 CHIEFS ' MESS 16 HEADING HOME 90 COMBAT SYSTEMS DEFT 19 TIGER CRUISE 91 ENGINEERING DEFT NAV ADMIN MEDICAL 31 41 HOMECOMING CRUISEBOOK COMMITTl 93 :E 96 FAREWELL SAN DIEGO ...
