Ankles like ice Volume 33 Number 46 Keflavik, Iceland November 18, 1977 LOCATED IN BLDG. 126, the Iceland Defense Force headquarters offices are now open for business, (photo by PHC David L. Brookins) Rear Admiral, staff moves to new headquarters Rear Admiral Karl J. Bernstein, Com- mander Iceland Defense Force, and his staff moved to a new headquarters building last week.

Keep leg elevated whenever possi- Numerous ankle injuries have occurred because of ice and snow conditions, the Naval Station Dispensary announces. Dispensary personnel suggest that proper initial self-treatment as follows can save you from increased disability: 1. Report to the Hospital if you cannot apply full weight on the leg. 2. Apply ice to injured area for 24 hours. 3 ble. 4. Do not apply heat to injured area until 24 hours after injury. 5. Report to sick call if ankle seems unstable when walking. Shoot your turkey Tomorrow a Thanksgiving turkey shoot is scheduled at 10 a.m. at the skeet and trap range. If this event is can- celed, it will be rescheduled at 1 p.m. Sunday. To get to the range, follow the road past the Sand Hut and Turner Gate, where the road splits at the air- plane graveyard; take a sharp right and drive on to the old Navy bus. The Captain R. R. Sparks Rod and Gun Club offers many items for the sports- man. If you're looking for that special Christmas gift for your "outdoorsman", come to the club and browse. The Rod and Gun Club is located in Bldg. T-196, next door to the Ski Chalet. Club opening hours are Mon- days and paydays 7 to 9 p.m. and Saturdays 1 to 3 p.m. Iceland offers some of the best fresh water trout and Atlantic Salmon fishing in the world. In addition, there is goose hunting and the unique opportunity to hunt Arctic Tarmigan. The Rod and Gun Club is dedicated to promoting good relations with Ice- landic sportsmen and landowners, and is interested in providing NATO base sportsmen an opportunity to pursue and enjoy unique hunting and fishing available in Iceland. PCS funds shortage gaps Keflavik billets A shortage of the Navy's fiscal year 1978 permanent change of station funds (PCS), which will have a minimum effect on personnel now stationed in Iceland, was announced by the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations last week. According to Naval Operations Order 131/77, the shortage was caused by Secretary of Defense budget cuts and in- voluntary increases in move costs. Additional funds have been requested. Cost reduction actions which have been implemented for officer and enlisted personnel are increased Con- tinental United States no-cost reas- signments and reduction in cross country moves. Additional actions which will affect officer and enlisted personnel are under study. It has been recommended that of- ficer overseas shore tours be increased to the maximum DoD prescribed area tour. This would affect areas listed in en- closure (1) or Bureau of Naval Personnel instruction 100.26E as 6 - 48 month tours. Accompanied tours would be increased from 36 to 48 months, and career bachelor tours would jump from 24 to 36 months. Additionally, selected CONUS sea/shore tours could be increased up to 12 months for officers. An increase in overseas tour lengths has been proposed for enlisted personnel. Areas under consideration are Hawaii, Philippines, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda. The extent of these changes will be unknown until the amount of FY78 funding is determined, and detailers will continue to make every effort to satisfy personnel duty preferences. Navy personnel with orders to Iceland may have their PCS orders delayed or cancelled, which would create billet gaps, according to Commander Paul J. Thorpe, Iceland Defense Force assistant Chief of Staff (personnel). Cdr. Thorpe also said the outlook was good for approval of tour extension re- quests from personnel stationed in Iceland. Air Forces Iceland has not yet received instructions concerning PCS funding, according to Chief Master Sergeant C. W. Tucker, AFI chief of military personnel. 7978 Combined Federal Campaign ends NATO base collects over $36,000 The 1978 Combined Federal Campaign is over. Final figures for the NATO base indicates that there was a 56 percent participation rate with over $36,000 collected for the annual charity drive. CFC provides the only opportunity of the year for DoD personnel overseas, both military and civilian, to support the nation's vital non-profit volunteer agencies which, in turn, help millions. Representatives of the 13 Interna- tional Service Agencies, American Na- Biggest influence in winter driving while snowing is the ability to hold Since having the second snowfall, drivers now should be aware of another problem of winter driving—that of traction. Traction is reduced by the accumulation of ice and/or snow. This does not necessarily mean that the temperature must be 32 degrees Fahren- heit or lower for ice to be on the roads. In fact, the temperature may be as high as 38 degrees Fahrenheit with ice forming at ground level because of the chill factor. This can result in the road sur- face going from wet to icy in a mat- ter of minutes. Drivers might well be on the look- out for this condition and adjust driving accordingly. Another condition may occur at in- tersections. The road surface may become slippery because vehicles slide while stopping and wheels spin when starting. To prevent sliding through an in- tersection and possibly getting in- volved in an accident, start slowing the vehicle well in advance of the intersection and remember to use a pumping action on the brakes. tional Red Cross, and 16 National Health Agencies also have expressed ap- preciation for all donations, which will activate the 1978 campaign slogan, "Make Someone Happy." Campaign chairman Lieutenant Colonel James Godwin, in thanking unit key persons who directed the successful cam- paign, pointed out that actually millions of "someones" will be assisted because of generous overseas DoD personnel. Traction When staring out at an inter- section, push lightly on the gas pedal. For those vehicles which have a standard transmission, use second gear and allow, a greater distance between you and a vehicle on the through street. When following another vehicle in- crease your distance to reduce the possibility °f sliding into it. Remember, when traction Is reduced reduce your speed. To reduce injuries, in case you should get involved in an accident—how about buckling that seat belt.
