Other Memories
Indian Ocean Cruise (11 Apr - 13 Oct 1987) - Connie conducted air operations in support of Operation Earnest Will, the escorting of re-flagged Kuwaiti tankers in the Persian Gulf as a result of Iranian attacks against international shipping.  As a result, the crew of the battlegroup was awarded the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal for their service.
As the Airwing (or Commander Air Group) Intelligence Officer (CAG AI), I managed and led the efforts of the squadron intelligence intelligence officers in the carrier intelligence center's (CVIC) Mission Planning section.
CVIC provides the embarked air wing with the capability to process and analyze collected information rapidly, combine it with other tactical intelligence, and correlate this data with other information in the database. The CVIC can generate mission planning material for the embarked commander and air intelligence briefing and planning materials. The main mission planning areas of support are flight operations and strike support. Individual functions within mission planning generally fall into two categories: photographic reconnaissance and strike mission planning.  The CVIC mission planning area provides pilots with an area to prepare for upcoming missions. Here the pilot and intelligence officer will find all the tools and intelligence data required for planning the mission. All pre-mission intelligence briefings are given from CVIC and disseminate out to the individual squadron ready rooms over the Secure Closed Circuit Television System (SCCTV). Post-flight debriefings are also conducted either in this area or some other specially designated area.
