Carter proclaims Nov. 11 Veteran's Day Washington (AFNS) - "On Veterans Day, 1980, we pay tribute to 30 mil- lion living and 14 million deceased patriots who served in our armed forces so that you and I might live in freedom," President Carter said in proclaiming Nov. 11 as Veterans Day. "We must honor these men and committing ourselves anew to the task of ensuring that the freedoms they helped to pre- serve and the nation they fought to defend will be safe and secure for future generations of Ameri- cans. "I call upon all Americans to support the Veteran- Day theme, 'A Grateful Nation Remembers,' to show their gratitude by visi- ting ill and disabled veterans in Veterans Administration medical centers across the country." Proud Spirit-- an exercise in readiness The Iceland Defense Force is participating in exercise Proud Spirit '80, a command post exercise sponsored by the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The exercise began yesterday and will continue through November 26. Proud Spirit '80 is designed to test the military services' and JCS' plans, systems and procedures for mobilization and deployment. Each Iceland Defense Force command will participate to some extent. As the exercise is a mobilization exercise, Air Forces Iceland, Naval Forces Iceland, Naval Communications Sta- tion Iceland and IceDeFor will be most heavily involved. Basically a command post exercise means that situations are simulated. As an example, a situation might be given such as five aircraft sched- uled to land at Keflavik, and host commands will need to provide food and housing for 500 men for three days, refuel and equip the aircraft. The aircraft will then proceed to another simulated strategic point. Although the exercise is done on paper, that is, the aircraft and personnel won't actually land, commands will need to reveal whether or not they could carry out the mission. Thus, current operating plans and procedures are tested for their feasibility and effectiveness. Proud Spirit '80 exercises pro- cedures to expand the active com- ponents by simulating the mobiliza- tion of all units in the approved force, all individual reservists and the logistic, communications, medi- cal and industrial resources to support this effort.
