White Falcon Volume XXXIII Number 4 Keflavik, Iceland January 28, 1977 SGT. LAVERN LOWE receives the Air Force Commendation Medal from Colonel W. E. Lindeman, Commander Air Forces Iceland, as Lieutenant Colonel Clyde A. Fechser, Detachment 14 commander, observes. Sergeant gets medal, medical team cited An administrative specialist at De- tachment 14, 39th Air Rescue and Recov- ery Wing, received an Air Force Commen- dation Medal Tuesday at a Det. 14 com- mander's call. Sergeant LaVern Lowe was awarded the medal for her service while at Nellis Air Force Base, NE. Colonel W. E. Lindeman, Commander Air Forces Iceland, made the presentation as well as awarding lapel pins to members of a medical rescue, executed July 30. Those recognized include: Lieutenant Evelyn Davis and Lieutenant Tommy Thompson, Navy Nurse Corps; Technical Sergeant Richard Garlie, pararescueman, and Technical Sergeant Kenneth Jones, flight mechanic. The mission involved picking up a six-month-old baby on a soccer field at Akranes; the infant was then airlifted for treatment to Reykjavik. Base club cards delayed; explained VP-45 picks Supervisor, Sailor selectees Personnelman First Class Robert E. Willett and Yeoman Seaman Russell P. Skinner who were selected as the Patrol Squadron Forty-Five Supervisor and Sailor of the Quarter, were recognized for their selection by Commander Stephen F. Loftus, VP-45 Commanding Officer. PN1 Willett entered the Navy in 1960 after graduating from high school in Morganfield, KY. Following recruit training, he was assigned to numerous ships, with shore tours in Great Lakes, IL, and the Bureau of Naval Personnel in Washington, D.C. Petty Officer Willett reported to VP-45, deploying to Sigonel- la, Sicily, in August 1975. Willett feels that a key element in his selection was his emphasis on team- work in supervision. Because of this approach, Petty Officer Willett contends that a supervisor must treat his subor- dinates as individual human beings, rather than merely work producing ob- jects. By the same token, as office supervisor, he, too, is a member of the personnel office team. Willett has suc- ceeded in not only making the Personnel Division productive but also conducive to work, a VP-45 spokesman commented. Another key element in Willett's sel- ection is his attitude towards indivi- dual Navy personnel. Petty Officer Wil- lett explains that a newcomer's first impression about VP-45 is formed when entering the Personnel Office. The treatment an individual receives when checking-in contributes largely to the attitude a newcomer has when starting a tour with the squadron. YNSN Skinner, who has been with VP-45 for about a year, was graduated from high school in Largo, FL, and became in- terested in the naval service when imme- diate employment was not available then. Having a father and uncles who were Navymen, Skinner looked to the Navy re- cruiter first. Bringing accomplished typing skill into the Navy, Skinner at- tended Yeoman "A" School before report- ing to VP-45. Yeoman Skinner serves as the squad- ron's Operations Yeoman, a billet nor- mally filled by a senior petty officer. Asked about his selection as Sailor of the Quarter, Skinner replied that a pos- itive attitude is equally important as the quality of work produced. Skinner plans to include aviation as part of his future. He wants to convert to the aviation antisubmarine warfare operator rating or pursue one of the Navy's aviation officer commissioning programs. Issuance of base club cards has beer delayed until early February, according to Walter Hocketstaller, director of the Officers' Club and Chief Petty Officers' /Top 4 Club. The club cards will apply to patrons and their guests as follows: Bona fide guests The invitation of bona fide guests into the base clubs on the U.S. Naval Station, Keflavik, is a privilege grant- ed to authorized club patrons. In ac- cordance with Manual for Messes Ashore (NAVPERS 15951), a bona fide guest is defined as a person who is actually a house guest of the host (sponsor), or a person whose presence as a guest is in response to a specific invitation for the specific occasion, who is a member of the host's party, and for whom the host is willing to assume responsibili- ty. Experience has shown that sponsors are often unable or unwilling to fulfill their responsibilities for the behavior and decorum of their guests. This prob- lem is magnified when the number of guests exceeds the sponsor's span of control. Icelandic law prohibits persons below the age of 20 from consuming alcoholic beverages and persons below the age of 18 from being in establishments where alcoholic beverages are sold. Command policy It is the policy of this command that: * No guest below the age of 18 will be admitted to any club aboard the Naval Station that dispenses alcoholic bever- ages, with the exception that dependents and guests under 18 years of age may be permitted into food service areas of clubs for the purpose of dining when ac- companied by a parent or other adult sponsor; and they may be permitted to attend movies and other family oriented activities in the company of parents or other adult sponsor; * Guests below the age of 20 may not consume alcoholic beverages, except that guests between the ages of 18 and 20 who are military may consume malt liquors; * Military members and authorized pa- trons may sponsor not more than one guest or one married couple. Excep- tions to this limitation may be permit- ted on an individual basis when a club patron desires to host a larger number of guests for a special occasion (wed- ding anniversary, "wetting down" party, retirement party, etc.). Advance ar- rangements must be made by the sponsor for such occasions. The sponsor shall contact the club manager during normal working hours and provide the names of guests, date, approximate time of arriv- al, the function they will be attending and the sponsor's name and club card number; * Sponsors are fully responsible for the behavior and decorum of their guests. Guests must remain with their sponsor while in the club. When club patrons sponsoring guests depart the club, they must ensure that their guest (s) also depart; * In accordance with Manual for Mess- es Ashore, guests may not make any type of purchase in the Mess or share in any expenses incurred by their sponsor. Dining Facility remodeled To commemorate the renovation of the Enlisted Dining Facility, Captain Jack T. Weir, Commander Naval Forces Iceland/ Commanding Officer, Naval Station Kefla- vik, cut the ribbon Tuesday afternoon at the galley. The dining facility, which will in- clude a proposed lowered ceiling, was retiled, and a textured-look wall design complements a partially paneled decor around the dining area entrance. In 1971 requisitions were begun for galley equipment replacements; $100,000 worth of galley equipment was requested for Fiscal Year 1977. Spending an estimated $12,000 for re- modeling the mess decks of the facility, about 1,500 manhours have been included during the renovation process. Two more equipment shipments are ex- pected to arrive in the near future. More equipment for the dining hall should arrive within the next five months. On the average, the mess hall serves from 735 to 900 military personnel at the noon hour daily. Distinguished guests at the ceremony included Naval Supply Corps personnel as well as tenant command commanding of- ficers. Capt. Weir was then honored with a cake, made by members of the dining facility, for his birthday.
