AFWL's Eighth Ranked Sea Service Newspaper - 1964 THE WHITE m las ©im. U.S. NAVAL STATION, KEFLAVIK INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, ICELAND Volume IV. Number 44 Friday, November 26, 1965 President Johnson Sets Aside Nov. 28 Honoring Those In Republic Of Viet-Nam President Lyndon B. Johnson has proclaimed Sunday, Nov. 28, as a "day of dedication and prayer" honoring the men and women of the Republic of Viet-Nam (RVN), the United States and other countries who are risking their lives to bring about a just peace in the RVN. The President re-emphasized that the United States "re- mains ready without condition for* the international discussion that can lead to lasting peace." President Johnson explained the purpose of the United States in Viet-Nam is to help open the way for social justice in place of un- provoked aggression and peace in- stead of war. "There can be no social justice of economic progress without sec- urity from external attack and from terror in the night," he said. The proclamation noted that in assisting the people of the RVN to resist unprovoked aggression, the United States and other na- tions are carrying on the honored tradition of defending a people's right to freedom." Nov. 28 was set as a national day of remembrance, "dedicated to those Americans who are com- mitting their lives, blood and energies in the defense of the world peace." President Johnson issued the proclamation in accordance with a Congressional resolution recom- mending such an observance. (APPS) IN THE CAMP OF MASSASOIT—Governor Bradford, Samoset, an- other Indian chief, and miscellaneous friends invite Massasoit to the Thanksgiving feast. Grade School Pupils Portray 'Thanksgiving' Governor Bradford, of the Pilgrim colony at Plymouth enters the camp of the great Indian Chief Massasoit to invite him to the first Thanksgiving. Wait a minute, that happened in 1621 and this is 1965! Oh, the scene is really the gym at Alfred T. Mahan High School and those Indians and Pilgrims are really the stu dents of Miss Bukowski's 4th and 5th grade and Mrs. Morris' 4th grade. Yes, the scene was slightly re- moved but there was no doubting the resemblance to the original scene when 72 Naval Station 4th and 5th graders presented, "The Good Harvest," a Thanksgiving pageant by Mrs. Liz Miller. i^- After five rehearsals and much study by the individual youngsters the pageant premiered Thursday, Nov. 18, at 8 p.m. The costumes, whose authenti- city cannot be doubted, were pre- pared by the individuals wearing them (in some cases their parents) and the props were constructed by the students of the 7th grade. AFTER THE RIDE__Mr. James K. Penfield, U. S. ambassador to Ice- land, stands and chats with Lt. Col. Joe H. Joiner, commander of the 57th Fighter Interceptor Sq., after a ride with the colonnel in a TF-102 Delta Dagger. It was the ambassador's first ride in a jet fighter aircraft. (Photo by A1C W. R. Keener) You May Need A New ID Card Navy and Marine Corps offici- als have cautioned enlisted men whose enlistments have been in- voluntarily extended to get new ID cards with a revised expiration date. Otherwise, they point out, the extended serviceman may find him- self unjustly denied entrance to commissaries and exchanges, or may be turned down when trying to cash checks using the expired card as identification. The warning is even more appli- cable, perhaps, to extended sevice- men's dependents. The man in uni- form might be able to talk his way out of the embarrassing situa- tion, but the dependents would have a hard time. (Navy Times) %u> (9-5 fit Heflatik . . .

Do person- nel around you say "Why send the White Falcon home, I'm not in it?" Do you know who's to blame for this lack of newspaper cover- age? Well, there is a culprit right there in your division you can blame. That culprit is you. Yes, you're the one. The White Falcon's limited staff can't be in on everything but you can keep it informed. Whatever your unit does is news. You needn't be a journalist to write a story. The Falcon has personnel available to trim off the rough edges. Monday morning is the cutoff time for all stories. So sit yourself down and tell us what is going on in your unit. ATTAINS COMMANDER—Capt Emile E.
