VcU.Il •s J* Housing Referral Office Navy wide aid for family man How many of you are aware of the existence of housing referral offices? How many of you are a- ware that there is one here, and how many can say that they know what one is? A recent survey of 7,000 Navy wives reveals that fewer than half of them were aware that housing referral offices even existed• It istrue that they are relative- ly new, but they have been at over 200 military installations since 1967, and today there are housing referral offices at more than 440 military bases. HRO's have one main purpose - to help military families who are authorized to live off-base ob- tain suitable, non-discriminatory f-base housing.

Most furni- ture of necessity, other than applicances, is available. The waiting list for this is set on a first-come, first-served basis. Normally, off-base housing is passed from one military family to another without being vacant. These transitions are sometimes done several months prior to oc- cupancy. Volunteer assistance is needed to maintain an accurate housing referral list here. If you want to help, call the base housing office at Ext. 6123. Most decorated Marine dies The most decorated man in Ma- rine Corps history,Lt. Gen. Lewis B. Puller died Oct. 11 in Hamp- ton, Va., at the age of 73. Marine Corps Commandant, Gen. Leonard F. Chapman made this an- nouncement shortly after the re- tired general's death: "In the passing of Lt. Gen. Puller, our Corps has lost one of the finest Marines of all time. All Marines knowof "Chesty" Pull- er's record; It is a history of our Corps during his period of service. As a private, an NCO and as an officer he served in three wars and in the combat of Haiti and Nicaragua. He won more combat decorations than any other Marine in history. He was a pro- fessional and he was tough---not callous, not brutal, but really tough. Chesty Puller showed his toughness in everything from en- gaging an enemy to taking care of his Marines, and in both he always won because he always gave the best of himself. All Marines bow our heads in respect. But we all know that the example and legend of Chesty Puller is a part of our Corps forever." In our relationships with our fellow man, some of us believe that tact is something you drive into a wall.
