- - - - . - ■ ; J R A ESTRICTED MVAILABILITY USS JOUETT returned from her very successful first Westpac deployment on July 18, 1968 and entered a phase of " restricted availability " . Most of the crew went on leave or to schools, and 6 officers and 104 enlisted men were transferred upon arrival-abcut one quarter of the ship ' s company. To the few left aboard, the ship seemed strangely silent and empty. In the following months JOUETT began to return to normal readiness. Along with old hands returning from schools and leave, 8 new officers and 68 new enlisted men came aboard. New commitments and new deadlines approached.

USS JOUETT (DLG-29) was commis- sioned at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, Bremerton, Washington, on December 3, 1966, under the command of Captain Robert S. Hayes. JOUETT has an overall length of 547 feet; beam 54 feet 9 inches, and displaces 7900 tons. She is armed with a twin Terrier Asroc launcher, a 5 ' 754 caliber gun mount and two 3 " 50 caliber single gun mounts, and two MK 32 torpedo launchers. JOUETT ' s sensors in- clude an advanced bow-mounted sonar and three-dimensional air search radar in- tegrated with the Navy Tactical Data Com- puter System. Her complement includes 23 officers and 373 enlisted men in addition to a staff of 22. A member of the DLG-26 class, JOUETT combines greater search capa- bility (radar sonar), greater fire power (missiles guns anti-submarine torpedoes), and greater command facilities (NTDS communications) than has ever been built into a warship of comparable size. DLG-29 first saw action in the Western Pacific starting January 1968. As one of the Navy ' s vanguard ships in the Viet- namese war, JOUETT guided air strikes on North Vietnam and rescued 8 pilots from North Vietnam and offshore. With missiles and interceptors under her con- trol, she successfully countered several enemy attacks. For effective service in hostile conditions, the ship earned the Navy Unit Commendation. JOUETT returned in July 1968 to the world she had helped protect.
