 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
AIMD IM4 Division Officer.  USS Enterprise

Enterprise conducted an opposed transit to Naval Station, Adak, and the Sitkin Sound Operations Area (11 to 13 November 1987), followed by Phase III (13 to 17 November), performing haven operations in and around Sitka Sound. The former involved a grueling 10 hours of radar navigation in restricted waters. Operations increased in tempo as the exercise progressed, Enterprise launching simulated strikes against military installations as well as performing CAP and AEW, ASW versus attack submarine Olympia (SSN-717) and mine warfare with S-3A Vikings. Sadly, during Phase III, Enterprise lost Chief Warrant Officer 4 Brashear overboard on 14 November; an intensive search failed to recover him.
