Navy fireman is deployed for six months

March 13, 1995

Navy Fireman Brian J. Carns, son of Robert and Deborah Carns of Westminster, is on a six-month deployment to the Western Pacific Ocean and Persian Gulf aboard the destroyer USS Cape Cod.

The 1991 graduate of Westminster High School is among more than 1,800 sailors on the 645-foot repair ship, which departed from San Diego in October.

Fireman Carns and his fellow crew members spent a month in Yokosuka, Japan, where they completed more than 2,000 repair jobs on Navy ships deployed to the Western Pacific Ocean.

The crew also has been providing fleet repair services for ships in the Persian Gulf, which have been enforcing the no-fly zone over southern Iraq.
