Prior to reporting to Iceland he was stationed in Bruns- wick, Maine. While in Iceland Karp is serving as the only jet mechanic attached to Patrol Sqad- ron 23, Detachment 13. Selected to represent the local Marines for the month of Janu- ary is LCpl Melton J. Dees, a native of Ocala, Fla., and a 1961 graduate of Ocala High School.

Selection for the honor of being named Airman. Marine, Sailor of the Month for the Iceland Defense Force is based on military appear- ance, leadership capabilities, mili- tary bearing and good conduct. Holy Name Luncheon Scheduled March 14 The Naval Station's Holy Name Society will sponsor a buffet luncheon March 14 at the CPO Club at 1. p.m. Bishop Gunnarsson of the Catholic Cathedral, Reykjavik, will be the guest speaker and talk about his recent travels to Rome's Ecumenical Council. All hands are cordially invited to attend. Tickets can be obtained from Holy Name members or contact T. R. Ronan, BKC, on base at 2236 for reservations. Judging from last year's at- tendance in which Bishop Gunn- arsson also spoke this year's lun- cheon should prove to be equally enjoyable. Willie Victors, Crews To Depart Keflavik RAdm Ralph Weymouth, Commander Iceland Defense Force, announced Feb. 18, the planned disestablishment of his Barrier Force Atlantic staff and the Airborne Early Warning Barrier function conducted thereunder. The announcement came after consultation between the Icelandic and American governments. The reduction is in keeping with the Department of Defense program of continued review of existing forces and operations to assure maximum defense effec- tiveness with minimum costs. At Keflavik, the primary effect will be the end of airborne early warning barrier operations by the EC121J Warning Star (Super Constellation) aircraft. The func- tions under the NATO and Uni- ted States agreement for sea sur- veillance, anti-submarine detection and identification will be conduc- ted by the SP-2H Neptune and P3A Orion aircraft from Kefla- vik International Airport. The Department of Defense has also scheduled the phasing out of other Atlantic and Pacific sea- ward extensions of the North American Distant Early Warn- ing (DEW) Line. Included under this program is the barrier patrol maintained by the Navy radar picket ships 300 miles off the east and west coasts of the United States. The world wide reduction pro- gram will affect, in total, 22 radar picket ships, 42 EC-121J long range radar aircraft and ap- proximately 9,000 officers and en- listed men. The elimination of these ships and aircraft will pro- duce savings of $69 million (2.96 billion kronur) in the fiscal year 1966 in the Department of De- fense. This cutback will be noticed at Keflavik in the departure of aircraft and temporarily assigned aircrews and squadron mainten- ance personnel. The Atlantic Barrier Force was organized at Argentia, Newfound- land in July 1955, and became fully operational in July 1957. This command moved to Keflavik and began operations Aug. 1, 1961 with the arrival of Commander Barrier Forces Atlantic and his staff. In This Issue BarForLant ........ pgs. 4-5 Sports ............. pgs. 6-7 Navy All Stars......pg. 8 Sergeant Robinson .. pg. 9 Doctors' Notebook . .. pg. 10 Should a study, begun by Pres- ident Johnson last April, indicate that the draft can be eliminated, look for a number of changes in the military services. Among the possibilities for change are: Higher pay for en- listed personnel, more flexible periods of enlistment, and more binding commitments to enlistees that they will get their choices in training and area assignments. These changes would be neces- sary because the draft has been a stimulas to volunteering; if the draft were abolished, there might not be enough volunteers to meet the nation's needs. The President's draft study is 'basically a market survey, to see what is the natural supply of people for military service — or what the supply would be without the draft," says William Gorham, the deputy assistant Secretary of Defense in charge of special man- power studies and requirements. "The question is to what extent," Gorham maintains. The Pentagon quizzed about 116,000 men in conducting the survey. Included were civilians who have not served in the armed forces but who are draft eligible, civilians who have served, and men who were on active military duty last June. According to preliminary find- ings, about 55 per cent of the draft-eligible age group (18 to 26) years either were on active military duty or had previously been in the armed forces. Of the remainder, about 80 per cent were not drafted because of marriage or because of family hardship. FIRST REENLISTMENT—Gary R. Reynolds, SN, of Air Operations, ships for six on his first reenlistment. He is being sworn in by Capt Robert R. Sparks, Commanding Officer, Naval Station.
