"As the petty officer in charge, I'm responsible for the day-to-day paper- work, training and budgeting in addition to the actual maintenance work on the equipment," he explained. The five-year Navy veteran is devoting some of his off-duty time to furthering his education by taking an English course from the University of Maryland. Petty Officer Rawls qualified for the Expert Pistol Medal in December, and he is a member of the NSGA pistol team. Originally planning an unaccompanied tour, the petty officer extended his Keflavik tour and was joined by his wife, Helen, and their two-year-old son, Matthew, in August. Jerome H. Freiborg Coming to Iceland from Aviation Ord- nance "A" School where he finished first in his class, Sailor of the Quarter AOAN Freiborg has worked as an ordnanceman with the Armory Branch of the Naval Station Weapons Department since May. "I repair and perform maintenance on small arms, and I also handle ammuni- tion. As an instructor, I give safety lectures to pistol team members and others on the safe use of small arms," AOAN Freiborg said. Not only has the airman striven for self-improvement through a college course in personnel management but also he is active in sports. He is a member of the Weapons Department bowling, bas- ketball and Softball teams. He has traveled on shopping tours in Reykjavik and Keflavik and has visited other locales in Iceland. Next month, he plans to take a trip to Europe. Clement Ned Jr. Having worked as sergeant and cor- poral of the guard, Marine Noncommis- sioned Officer of the Quarter Sgt.
