Admiral Kidd departed Keflavik for Naval Air Station Norfolk Sunday morn- ing. New CFK chief of staff assumed duty yesterday Captain Myles E. Fladager NOR AD enters 21st "As the North American Air Defense Command enters its 21st year, we can all look back with pride on the Command's many outstanding accomplishments during the past two decades. But, we cannot dwell too long in the past. We must look to the future and continue to de- velop aerospace systems capable of dealing with the growing threat. It will not be easy. There is great challenge in providing North American Continental Air Defense in the future. Expanding space and missile technology; a desire for credible strategic non- nuclear defensive options; and changing national priorities all demand that we get the most from our limited aerospace defense resources. As in the past, people will be the key ingredient in NORAD's future. I challenge each of you—Canadian and United States alike—to keep the faith in pursuit of our most vital missions of attack warning, space surveillance, aircraft surveillance and bomber de- fense. For 20 years, we in NORAD have watched over North America. As all Americans, we hope our services will never be needed. But, we are vigi- lant—and we are ready. (signed) Daniel James Jr., General, USAF, Commander in Chief. Navy Captain Myles E. Fladager as- sumed the duties as chief of staff for Commander Fleet Air Keflavik yesterday. The 45 year old Minneapolis native was the assistant head, Europe-NATO Branch of the Politico-Military Policy Division in the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations before coming to Iceland. A 1955 graduate of the Naval Academy, Capt. Fladager was designated a naval aviator in November 1956. He attended the Armed Forces Staff College in 1970. In 1973 he attended the National War College where he studied the process of formulating national security policy. The captain holds a master's degree AFI Supply sections provide improved aid While continuing to emphasize cus- tomer service, the Air Force supply re- organization entails increased effec- tiveness and efficiency within the sup- ply division and better resource usage. Since Headquarters, United States Air Force, Washington, DC, approved the im- plementation Jan. 3, 1977, supply com- ponents have been redefined as follows: The Customer Support Branch is re- sponsible for the effective and effi- cient management of the Single Base Sup- ply Support System functions involved in direct customer support. To provide a single point for cus- tomer assistance, the Customer Liaison Office handles all complaints, questions and status from customers supported. Material Support Section Incorporated in the Material Support Section are the following sections: The primary point for submission of all issue requests for equipment and supplies is based on Demand Processing. In the Bench Stock Support Unit, bench stocks are established in coor- dination with supported activities. Authorization lists and master decks are maintained for all bench stocks. Supply points for maintenance per- sonnel are established and operated by the Repair Cycle Support Unit. These in international affairs from George Washington University. During his 20-year career, Capt. Fladager has commanded Patrol Squadron 48 and has served as an aide and flag lieutenant to the Commander-in-Chief, U.S. Atlantic Fleet. Additionally, he served as air intelligence officer, communications officer, personnel officer, and patrol plane commander with various squadrons. Capt. Fladager holds the Bronze Star, Air Medal, and the Navy Joint Service Commendation Medals. He is married to the former Phyllis Marie Sherrill of Baltimore. They have four children: Kenneth, Eric, Lisa and Birgit. : Reorganized supply points may be operated by maintenance personnel if the assets are located in the maintenance shop and the workload does not justify fulltime sup- ply manning. Bulk issue Formerly the Base Service Store Unit, the Retail Sales Section performs storage and issue functions for items under the bulk issue concept, including expendables and hand tools. Individual Equipment operates cen- tralized on-base issue, storage and turn-in point for all items authorized to individuals by the Air Force Spe- cialty Code or duty such as special clothing and field equipment. This includes aircrew personal and survival equipment. The Authorization and Validation Section handles equipment allowance and authorization, special level validation and all due-out validation requirements. For equipment requests, the Allowance and Authorization Unit acts as the base equipment review and authorization acti- vity (ERAA). Lastly, the Validation Unit reviews, prepares and distributes applicable re- ports to appropriate organizations, and ensures timely completion of due-out re- views, validation and/or cancellation. Captain A. W. Howard Jr., former chief of staff, departed Wednesday to assume the duties as Director, Naval Air Logistics Office in New Orleans.
