Named in honor of the late Rear Admiral Andrew McKee, a pioneer in submarine design and research, USS McKEE was built by Lockheed Ship- building, Seattle, WA. McKEE has traveled to Vancouver, B. C; Cold Bay and Adak, AK; Matzatlan Mexico and until now as far as Oahu, HI. These cruises were impor- tant but never before in our fine ship ' s history has leav- ing San Diego meant as much to the crew as it did on 18 January 1991. The longest and most important voyage of McKEE ' s solid history began that day As a submarine tender, McKEE provides mobile support to nuclear powered fast attack submarines. Pro- viding a wide range of repair, spare parts, provision- al, medical, dental, mail and legal services, McKEE was tasked with supporting sur- face ships for Desert Storm. During the spring of 1984, McKEE became the first submarine tender certified to support the tomahawk cruise missle system. In 1990, McKEE underwent modern- ization with her first DSRA since commissioning. -T rhe Best l SS M( KEE was awarded the BattU ,.i 1986, 1 I Meritorii in 1986, IN PA( FLTs Golden Anchoi Award I Anchor Award in 1989 and 1991.

' Midnight, January 16, 1991. Desert Shield becomes Desert Storm. Only 34 hours latet, the first United States Navy ship departs for the Persian Gulf. That ship was USS McKEE (AS-41) From our first wakening moment on that fateful day, through the wait for our bags to be checked, culminating with tears we bid farewell to cherished ones. We, the men and women of McKEE, felt many emotions flooding us. Some endured the long drive and longer wait at the gate to Subase. Others stood watching shipmates, families and friends slowly arrive. Each had private concerns, thoughts, dreams and fears to face as we anticipated our future. Departures for any deployment are always difficult. The emotions felt by us and our families, compounded by the reality of war, were, on this day overwhelming. As we manned the rails watching the secure world of San Diego slide further behind we each contemplated our future. Desert Storm has changed our lives! LOVING A SAILOR .... is having her whisper her love to you, it ' s whispering back you love her too. Then of course a kiss, a promise to love; knowing that you ' re watched, approved from above. Reluctantly, painfully letting him go while you die inside, wanting him so. Watching him leave with eyes full of tears, standing alone with hopes dreams and fears. ■ 1 1 €N€RRL er •. f LOOK! 3 Even though we are working, training and dm still have some free time.

While on station at " Subase Jebel Ali " record setting pro- ductivity was achieved resulting in 27, 000 dental procedures on 3, 700 patients in 64 days. Thirteen surface combatant ' s dental readi- ness increased above 85% with seven of those above 90%.

An emergency diesel over- haul for USS Hawes (FFG-53) was completed in 12 days, after a shipyard had estimated 21 days. USS Paul F.

BE ALES APRIL 11,1965- NOVEMBER 19, 1991 • - s m R-5 Division RADCON LCDR D. S. Ray LTjg R. P. Schuerenberg The Radiological Controls Division acts as a watchdog organization for the safe accomplishment of nuclear work. In addition to these duties, R-5 provides a storage facility for radioactive liquid waste and materials. Within the division ' s 35 spaces they calibrate equipment, machine parts, build contaminants, provide pure demineralized water, decon equipment, and perform chemistry and isotopic analysis. RadCon also renders casualty response for November Emergencies and conducts environmental studies. HIGHLIGHTS The shortage of nuclear work during the deploy- ment did not diminish R-5 ' s well established work ethic. RadCon augmented other repair work centers, turning nuclear assets into conventional ones, and completed well over a hundred jobs on 45 tended units.A heavy training commitment and a challeng- ing schedule for the upgrade and maintenance of the Nuclear Support Facility competed for divisional resources. A Radiological Controls Mid-Term Examinatioi served to spotlight the exceptional caliber of Rad- Con personnel. R-5 ' s drive was evident on the playing field as well. The divisional Softball team took second plac in McKEE ' s tournament, its volleyball team finishe third and three of its personnel played on the McKEE Cardinals Championship Softball Team.
