USS Chung-Hoon to Return From Deployment

The guided-missile destroyer USS Chung-Hoon (DDG 93) is scheduled to return from a five-month deployment to the Western Pacific (WESTPAC) June 28.

While on deployment, the ship and crew of more than 300 Sailors conducted various theater security operations and goodwill activities with partner nations.

“The Sailors and officers of Chung-Hoon performed exceptionally while deployed to the Western Pacific,” said Cmdr. Tom Ogden, commanding officer. “During exercises and operations with our allies and partners in the Asia Pacific, we flew helicopters and sailed the ship in accordance with international laws and were able to show strong, persistent presence in the region.”

Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron (HSM) 37 Detachment 7, homeported at Marine Corps Base Hawaii, embarked aboard Chung-Hoon during the deployment. They flew 245 sorties, totaling more than 680 hours with two MH-60R aircraft in support of multi-national exercises and presence operations in the Indo-Asia Pacific.

“The relationship with Chung-Hoon was outstanding from day one,” said Lt. Cmdr. Justin Eckhoff, HSM-37, Detachment 7 air boss. “The crew was professional and very welcoming, allowing us to form a great team.”

According to Eckhoff, the camaraderie he experienced during the evolution was not only remarkable, but valuable and directly impacted mission success.

“As a detachment, we adopted the nickname ‘Paniolo,’ a word for the cowboys of the Hawaiian Islands. The original Paniolo were hard working, resourceful, and shared a strong tie of brotherhood. Those same traits were evident every day from the maintainers, aircrew, and pilots of HSM 37, Detachment 7. Thanks to their efforts, we operated the world’s most advanced helicopters night after night, safely, and effectively.”

During the deployment, Chung-Hoon made port visits to Japan, South Korea, Singapore, and the Philippines, and participated in numerous community service projects including volunteering at local elementary schools, orphanages, and soup kitchens.

In February, Chung-Hoon participated in Foal Eagle, an annual bilateral training exercise designed to enhance the readiness of United States and Republic of Korea forces and their ability to work together during a crisis.

In June, Chung-Hoon participated in Malabar, a trilateral naval exercise with Japan and India to increase bilateral nation inoperability. During Malabar, Chung-Hoon received fuel from the Indian oiler INS Shakti further showcasing the  ability of the nations to operate together.

Chung-Hoon also participated in a group sail across the Pacific Ocean with Indian, Singaporean, Indonesian, and Japanese navies in preparation for the 2016 Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) exercise.

Twenty-six nations, 45 ships, five submarines, more than 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel will participate in the RIMPAC exercise scheduled June 30 through August 4, in and around the Hawaiian Islands and Southern California.

Chung-Hoon is assigned to Carrier Strike Group 3 and Destroyer Squadron 21 and is homeported in Hawaii as part of U.S. 3rd Fleet. It is also part of the Great Green Fleet, an initiative that highlights the Navy’s efforts to transform its energy use to increase operational capability.

Chung-Hoon was commissioned Sep. 18, 2004 and was named after Rear Admiral Gordon Pai’ea Chung-Hoon, who served during World War II and was the first Asian-American flag officer. He is a recipient of the Navy Cross and Silver Star for conspicuous gallantry and extraordinary heroism as Commanding Officer of USS Sigsbee from May 1944 to October 1945.

U.S. 3rd Fleet leads naval forces in the Pacific and provides the realistic, relevant training necessary for an effective global Navy.

USS Chung-Hoon to Depart on Western Pacific Deployment

The guided-missile destroyer USS Chung-Hoon (DDG 93) is scheduled to depart Jan. 27 on a regularly scheduled Strike Group deployment to the Western Pacific Ocean with the John C. Stennis Strike Group.

While deployed, Chung-Hoon and its crew of more than 300 Sailors will conduct theater security cooperation and maritime presence operations with partner nations.

The mission of Chung-Hoon is to conduct sustained combat operations at sea, provide primary protection for the Navy’s aircraft carriers and battle groups, as well as serve as escort to Navy and Marine Corps amphibious forces and auxiliary ships, and conduct independent operations as necessary.

“Departing on deployment is a significant event in the life of all Sailors.” said Cmdr. Tom M. Ogden, commanding officer of Chung-Hoon. “Months of training, maintenance, and preparations all make a ship ready for deployed operations.  The crew has succeeded at every task leading up to this and deployment will be the capstone of those tremendous efforts.”

Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron 37 Detachment 7, homeported at Marine Corps Base Hawaii, is scheduled to embark Chung-Hoon for the deployment. Detachment 7, known as “Paniolo,” is scheduled to deploy with a total of 28 personnel and two MH-60R Seahawk helicopters, the U.S. navy’s primary anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare platform.

“I am very excited for the upcoming deployment onboard USS Chung-Hoon, and I am extremely proud of the ‘Paniolo’ pilots, aircrewmen, and maintainers for their hard work and preparation,” said Lt. Cmdr. Justin Eckhoff, HSM-37 Detachment 7’s officer-in-charge. “We are motivated and ready to employ our two MH-60R helicopters in diverse mission areas, including anti-surface and anti-submarine warfare, in order to meet the tasking of our ship, air wing, or strike group commander.”

Chung-Hoon is assigned to Carrier Strike Group Three and Destroyer Squadron Twenty One and is homeported in Hawaii as part of U.S. 3rd Fleet and is also part of the Great Green Fleet, an initiative that highlights the Navy’s efforts to transform its energy use to increase operational capability.

Chung-Hoon was commissioned Sep. 18, 2004 and was named after Rear Admiral Gordon Pai’ea Chung-Hoon, who served during World War II and was the first Asian American Flag Officer. He is a recipient of the Navy Cross and Silver Star for conspicuous gallantry and extraordinary heroism as Commanding Officer of USS Sigsbee from May 1944 to October 1945.

NAVY Ship USS Chung-Hoon Denied Entry to Hilo Harbor

The US Navy Ship USS Chung-Hoon was spotted this morning off the Big Island of Hawaii this morning as it was expected to arrive in Hilo for the Merrie Monarch festivities.
Chung Hoon Refuel

Unfortunately the ship had to turn around once it got to the Big Island because the water in Hilo Harbor was not deep enough for the ship to port.

The NAVY has released the following statement:

In an abundance of caution and as advised by the embarked State Dept. of Transportation Harbor Pilot,  the Commanding Officer of USS Chung-Hoon (DDG 93)  felt it was prudent to not proceed with entering Hilo Harbor this morning due to the shallow depth of the harbor.

Sharing the Navy with the people of Hilo is important. We certainly value the opportunity to showcase our Navy to the American people. Our partnership with the Hilo Council is an outstanding example where a community and the military join together to create an environment of mutual support and broad benefit and the Navy looks forward to continuing this partnership for many years to come, and we deeply regret the inconvenience this has caused to our friends and neighbors in Hilo.

Capt. Mark Manfredi, Chief of Staff, Navy Region Hawaii will still attend tonight’s Merrie Monarch Festivities and the U.S. Pacific Fleet Band will be flown over here to  march and perform in the Merrie Monarch Parade tomorrow morning.

USS Chung-Hoon to Visit Hilo for Merrie Monarch Festival

The Pearl Harbor-based Aegis-class guided missile destroyer USS Chung-Hoon (DDG-93) will visit Hilo April 10-12 to participate in the 52nd  annual Merrie Monarch Festival.

USS Chung-Hoon is named for Rear Admiral Gordon Pai`ea Chung-Hoon, the first native Hawaiian admiral in the U.S. Navy.  Admiral Chung-Hoon was assigned to the USS Arizona on the morning of December 7, 1941; and nearly 70 years ago on April 14, 1945, the admiral received the Navy Cross during World War II after a kamikaze attack that killed several members of his crew and severely damaged his ship, USS Sigsbee. USS Chung-Hoon is one of eleven surface ships homeported in Pearl Harbor.

USS Chung-Hoon to Return to Hawaii Homeport Tomorrow

A couple of years ago I got to go out to sea with USS Chung-Hoon and I’m proud that they are returning to its homeport here in Hawaii:

“We operated forward and worked with our foreign partners in various multi-national exercises improving warfighter skills across a broad range of mission sets and further strengthening our bonds,” said Cmdr. Justin Orlich, the ship’s commanding officer. “Chung-Hoon sailors have accomplished a great deal this deployment and have much to be proud of in service to our nation.”

My Top Adventures of 2010… Numbers 2 and 1

If you have been following my blog, then you will know that I have been counting down the top adventures that I got to go on this year.

So today I post #2 adventure which was having the opportunity to go up in a C-17 Military transport plane.

Me in front of the C-17 I would later fly in

Simulating an aerial drop over the Big Island…

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Brc-OgHxNYg]

Getting escorted by F-16’s

and then sitting in the cockpit of the plane when we landed!

The very next day… brought me to my #1 Adventure that I got to do this year and that was Landing on the aircraft Carrier USS Ronald Reagan and Catapulting off!

The USS Ronald Reagan

This was definitely the highlight of the year as they literally caught us by a wire as we landed on the carrier… but only after we missed catching the wire the first time!

We missed the wire on our first approach and had to gun it off the end and try it again where we were successful on the second attempt.

It was an awesome experience as when we were leaving… they actually catapulted us off in a COD Jet.

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpeeNl8pD0g]

Out of all the folks that got to go… I was the only one brave enough to ask the Commander of the USS Ronald Reagan for a Commanders Coin and he gave me one!

This was a great trip and I’m sure it’s a once in a lifetime that an ordinary joe blow like me… gets invited on these buggahs… So a big Mahalo to the Captain Kenneth Norton and the US Pacific Fleet for having me aboard!

Top 10 Adventures in 2010… Numbers 4 and 3

Continuing on with my top 10 adventures in 2010 today brings us to adventures 4 and 3.

Coming in at #4 was getting a chance to go out to sea with the US Navy Destroyer USS CHUNG-HOON

At the helm of the USS Chung-Hoon

A group of us got to go out to sea with the sailors of the USS Chung-Hoon on their family day… despite the fact that I don’t have any family members aboard the Chung-Hoon I was well accepted on board.

Playing with toys?

I had no idea that when we were out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean that a submarine would submerge next to us… that was pretty thrilling!

This tripped me out!

Like to say thanks to the folks at US Pacific Command for hooking me up with this trip… despite the fact that I got seasick on it and felt like I had sea legs for the next 24 hours!

Coming in at #3 was a Snorkeling trip off the Kona Coast with Fairwind Cruises Hula Kai where I got to use a sea rocket!

The Boat

The sea rocket that I got to use was incredible as it literally propelled me through the water so I didn’t have to use much energy trying to swim.

A "Sea Rocket"

Not only did they feed us breakfast… but they also fed us lunch… which unfortunately for me, kept me out of the water for a bit of time because I didn’t want to cramp up.

Here’s a quick video of what I got to do!

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmDbn5Q1hTE]

I’d like to thank Fair Wind Cruises for this opportunity of a lifetime!

My Pearl Harbor Memories

Well today is considered “Pearl Harbor Day” and we all know what happened that fateful day.

This has been an interesting year for me as I got to join a few others on some exercises that the military did and most of them were at or around Pearl Harbor.

My way of commemorating today will be to put this little post together of the experiences I got to have!  So here are my Pearl Harbor memories from this past year.

It all began over a year ago when I had the opportunity to meet one of the most powerful men I have ever met, The Commander of the Pacific Command, Admiral Willard.

I was too nervous to do anything other then shake his hand and I certainly didn’t want to ask any questions that might have gotten me in trouble!

I guess this event went over well enough so they then invited me go Out to Sea on the Navy Destroyer USS Chung-Hoon.

This was pretty spectacular as I didn’t know a submarine would show up out of nowhere!

Since I got a bit sea-sick on the USS Chung-Hoon, I guess it was the Navy’s way of making sure I didn’t get sick on another trip by bringing me aboard the USS Mercy for a tour of the worlds largest trauma centers… and it floats!

Despite what you may think… we were pretty free to take pictures of most the things we saw on these events!

After the tour of the USS Mercy a couple months later, I got the opportunity to go up in a C-17 and fly from Oahu to the Big Island for a simulated mission.

During the flight they opened the back and did some simulated air drops.  Then the next thing you know they had some F-17’s that were simulating an attack on the plane!

It was cool because when they landed in Kona… they actually let me sit in the cockpit!

It felt weird flying to Kona and then landing… and then taking off again… but that’s just what we did and we returned to Oahu.

The following day I did something that just totally blew my mind… and that was getting the chance to Land on the Aircraft Carrier USS Ronald Reagan and getting Catapulted off out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean!.

This was pretty cool as I actually got to sit in the Commander’s Chair!

When we first landed we missed the chain that was suppose to catch our plane so we gunned it off the end and made another pass around and then landed safely.  That wasn’t near as exciting as getting catapulted off though!

And while most of the things listed above happened on or near Pearl Harbor… the most recent thing I was able to attend courtesy of the Navy was the practice day at the Kaneohe Air Show where we got to get up close and personal w/ Blue Angels!

So while many people may have bad memories about Pearl Harbor… I certainly can say that all my memories of the place have been pretty spectacular!

I Spy… ME in the Honolulu Advertiser

If you have been following my blog, you will know that a week ago I had the chance to tour the USS Destroyer Chung-Hoon out at sea.

Today, Honolulu Advertiser Copy Editor and Odds and Ends writer Shauna Goya featured her pictures and write up on the trip.

I also notice that there are a couple pictures of me included!

You can check it out here: Jack is the ODD Winner

So I received my first ever “Commanders Coin

I didn’t even know these things existed!

Out to Sea on the Destroyer USS Chung-Hoon

Well I just got back from a couple days on Oahu and all I can say is WOW!

A week ago, I got a message from someone with the US Pacific Command inviting my wife and baby to come along board the Navy Destroyer USS Chung-Hoon, for their “Family Day” that they were having along with bringing on folks from the  Navy League Honolulu Council who have adopted the Chung-Hoon as their own special ship.

I accepted the invite and I had been eagerly waiting to tell folks all about this opportunity of a lifetime, but I agreed not to say anything until after I went on the trip.

Unfortunately, my son has school and we weren’t gonna pull him out for two days although I wanted to.  There were a few other kids on the boat and they certainly were having the time of their life.

I was stoked to know that I would be in the comfort of other non military folks who are also into blogs and social media:

There was internet-tech guru, Burt Lum from Bytemarks, the ever popular Honolulu Advertiser Blogger – Shauna Goya, of  “Odds and Ends“, the inspirational and crafty photographer Dallas Nagata, also Kaimana Pine from KDesign Hawaii and Kanu Hawaii was a last minute entrant and  we were also joined by Russell Mesinas of the Air Force and Christie Shimabuku of the Waikiki Resort Hotel.

I met with the Public Affairs people at 8:00 at the Pass & ID office by the main Nimitz gate and they brought us into the secured area in their Public Affairs van.

We weren’t allowed to take pictures as we were driving down to where USS Destroyer Chung-Hoon was based at, but once we got to the ship, we were pretty much free to take pictures of anything we wanted… well accept the combat room… however, they did let us go into the combat room which was pretty cool to see them at actual work.

I was fascinated by many things and took over 280 pictures which you can see below, so I’ll just point out some of the cooler stuff that I saw that I can actually explain a bit.

Above is a picture of me sitting at the helm of the “bridge” of the ship.  Inside this part of the room is where the sailors actually steer the Destroyer from.

Here is a short movie I made inside the area…

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-p-uX89gOLA&hl=en_US&fs=1&]

They fed us lunch on the deck of the ship which consisted of kalbi, hamburgers, hot dogs, corn, salad, chips, and dessert… The problem  for me, is I was getting a little seasick so I wasn’t able to eat all of my lunch.

Then something pretty cool happened, we got to watch one of the Sailors re-enlist with the Navy which is a pretty inspirational thing.

His family was able to be there to support him in his decision:

We got to tour pretty much the entire boat from everything from the kitchen

to the places where the sailors sleep (3 to a room in this one particular)

There were lots of things that interested me… but these missile launchers for some reason really had my interest “piqued” and I wish I could have looked inside one of these hatches.

Our public affairs person with the Pacific Command asked the Commander of the Chung-Hoon, CDR Mike McCartney, to come out and talk with us and that was pretty inspirational.

On the way back into Pearl Harbor after being out at sea for about 4 hours, the ship decided that it would show off some of it’s power and they blasted away at a very fast speed for about 10-20 miles.  I went to the back of the destroyer and caught this video of the wake.

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xb6VO4sEGAg&hl=en_US&fs=1&]

It was pretty cool because out of nowhere this Submarine started heading towards us and the two ships communicated to make sure there wasn’t a collision but they still got close enough so that I could take this picture as it was going by.

It was pretty interesting being on the ship while the Sailors were on duty at different stations.

I can’t possibly post all the pictures and write about them, you can click the pictures below for a larger version.
