■ Navy Seaman Naomi P. Murrell, a 1993 graduate of Smithson Valley High School, Spring Branch, recently returned to Norfolk, Va. from a six-month overseas deployment to the Mediterranean Sea with the destroyer tender USS Shenandoah. Munell was one of 1,528 sailors aboard the ship who completed the 11,000-mile voyage which began in late November.
Murrell's ship served as a floating repair facility for forward deployed U.S. Navy surface ships. During the deployment, Murrell and fellow shipmates used a wide assortment of high-tech skills to repair electronic equipment, rewind electric motors, and weld exotic metals. Murrell’s ship also is equipped with machine shops and even has a foundry for making parts.
Murrell’s ship repaired 17 ships that were berthed alongside or at anchor dunng the top. Fly-away teams from USS Shenandoah also repaired several ships moored in other countries as well. During the deployment, crew members also participated in a mock civilian evacuation exercise, in which Shenandoah sailors volunteered to be rescued.
While spending 48 days at sea, Murrell also visited Crete, Cyprus, Israel,
Italy, Sardinia, Sicily, and Spain. During a tour to Rome, Shenandoah crew members attended a Papal Audience at St. Peter’s Basilica. Another highlight occurred when about a dozen crew members were baptized in the Jordan River during a port visit to Haifa, Israel. Murrell joined the Navy in Sept. 1993.
■ Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Robert N. Johnson, son of Nancy W. Johnson, of New Braunfels, is halfway through a 6-month overseas deployment to the Persian Gulf aboard the guided missile frigate USS McClusky. Johnson is one of 300 sailors aboard the ship who departed Yokosuka, Japan in Feb. for the 6-month assignment with the Middle East Force. Johnson has been operating in the Persian Gulf helping conduct maritime interceptions of merchant ships suspected of violat
ing the international embargo against Iraq. Johnson and fellow shipmates have been questioning and searching ships in international waters suspected of smuggling prohibited materials to and from Iraq in violation of the agreement. Johnson is also participating in several multinational exercises with forces from Great Britain, Kuwait and Thailand. In the Persian Gulf, Johnson’s ship trained firing its large and small caliber guns at targets and conducting choke point operations. In an area where more than half the world’s oil is transported by merchant ships through narrow choke points such as the Strait of Hormuz, ships like Johnson’s play an invaluable role in providing security and stability to the region. Equipped with sophisticated radar, sonar and weapons systems, Johnson’s ship can combat submarines,
ships and aircraft. Johnson’s ship represented the U.S. at the International Defense Exhibition in the United Arab Emirate (UAE) in which the U.S. Ambassador to the UAE and Secretary of Defense William Perry visited the ship. While spending most of the deployment at sea, Johnson has also visited Kuwait, Singapore, and Thailand. The 1984 graduate of Berkiner High School in Richardson, Texas joined the Navy in Sept. 1987.
