Casey receives his letter of appointment from Captain A. W. Howard Jr., Commander Fleet Air Keflavik chief of staff, (photo by PH2 Roseanne Caruso) GW02 Casey—newly appointed by J02 Judy Johns Chief Warrant Officer.Patrick J.,, Casey achieved one of his goals-last week when he was promoted to his present rank from chief aviation anti-submarine operator. In a ceremony at Commander Fleet Air Keflavik headquarters, Captain A. W. Howard Jr., COMFAIRKEF chief of staff, presented the letter of appointment to CW02 Casey. When asked how he felt when he found out he was a selectee for chief warrant officer, Mr. Casey stated, "I was ex- tremely happy. I had completed a goal I had begun working on in 1969. Profes- sionally , being promoted to aviation op- erations technician warrant officer is the epitome of the AW rate." CW02 Casey entered the Navy in Novem- ber 1962. He began to apply for the War- rant Officer Program in 1969 when he was an AW1. He also started his college studies with the University of Maryland the same year. He was selected for the Associate Degree Completion Program (ADCOP) and re- ceived his associate degree from Delmar College, Corpus Christi, TX, in 1973. Upon reporting for duty at COMFAIRKEF in June 1974, he enrolled in the Univer- sity of Maryland European Division. Ex- cept for one semester, he attended class- es continuously and was awarded a bache- lor of science degree in management last March. His job at COMFAIRKEF consists of monitoring, dissimilating and analyzing data gathered on the patrol squadron mis- sions. "I've really enjoyed my job. I've always felt gainfully employed," he said. "I think the experience I gained here helped in my selection to chief warrant officer." CW02 Casey doesn't intend to stop at the warrant officer level. As soon as he meets time in service and time in rank requirements, he plans on applying for the Limited Duty Officer Program. Because of his promotion to chief warrant officer, Mr. Casey has received orders to the Tactical Support Center in Sigonella, Sicily. He and his family will leave Iceland Wednesday for his new assignment. CW02 Casey and his wife, Carol Anne, have three children: Patrick, Kevin and Caroline. During the first week of the Air Force Association's annual membership drive, 18 new members have been obtained at Naval Station, Keflavik. Current indications are that this year's drive will be the most successful thus far, the chairman states. The association has played a major role in supporting the incentives of achieving an all volunteer force. It also strongly supports service medical and dental care for dependents of active duty personnel. ******************** More adequate pay and allowances, in- creased promotional opportunities, ex- panded on base housing programs and equalized PCS entitlements are among the association's top support priorities, particularly as they relate to lower ranking airmen. ******************** There is increased emphasis on AFA's Junior Officer Advisory Council, Enlisted Council, and Total Force Advisory Council—each selected for particular ex- pertise in people programs in their special areas of interest. Expanded membership will support the work of these important councils. ******************** Nationally, the association has some 150,000 members and is recognized as the free world's leading spokesman for adequate aerospace power. Membership dues in the association are $10 per year, or $24 for a three- year membership.

"Change Two' regulates grooming standards, uniforms, name tags Last summer, the Navy published "Change One" to Navy Uniform Regula- tions that spelled out in some detail, the permissible grooming criteria for hair cuts. Now, in a Bureau of Naval Personnel notice that will be effected soon, some more specifics will be spelled out in "Change Two." The changes will be listed in BUPERS Notice 1020, dated March 2, 1977, and will be implemented May 1, 1977. The changes include specific grooming standards on beards and moustaches, provide guidance on regu- lation uniform items obtained from non-Navy sources, and establishes uniform requirements for travel in government aircraft. Beard guide set The new regulations specify length and bulk guidelines for beards similar to those already in effect for hair. The bulk of the beard—that's the distance that the mass of facial hair protrudes from the skin on the face— shall not exceed one-half inch. The length of individual facial hair shall be limited to three quar- ters of an inch. Additionally, the change points out, a moustache worn with a beard must blend smoothly into the beard, and no portion of the moustache will extend below the Upline of the up- per lip. In other words, when a moustache is worn with a beard, the two must meet. There will be no gaps between them. Uniforms certified Another change, relating to regu- lation uniform items, charges that the purchaser of the items from ex- changes or commercial outlets, now has the responsibility of ensuring that each garment contains a "uni- form certification label." And, the change further notes, commanding officers may require that uniforms worn for ceremonies, inspections or other official func- tions, in fact, be regulation or certified. Uniform required In the paragraph regarding travel on government aircraft, it says that Navy personnel will wear the appropriate uniform unless civilian clothes are authorized in the individual's orders. But, it adds, "Normally civilian clothing will not be prescribed unless there are extenuating local circum- stances or are required by other regu- lations." Even if authorized, civilian clothes must be in good taste and not in con- flict with accepted attire in the geo- graphic area. Name tags specified There is also a new reg on name tags, making them uniformly the same size, and to be worn on the right breast corres- ponding in position with the ribbons on the left. However, name tags will not be worn when medals are prescribed. And, finally, paragraph 1212 of the regulation states that recommendations for changes to Navy uniforms may be made by submitting them via the immedi- ate chain of command to PERS-18, at the bureau.
