NUCLEAR DIVISION - EVALUATION
(1 Jan - 30 June 1956)
It isfelt that the Nuclear Division personnel have performed their duties in a very satisfactory manner during this six month period from January to July 56. All Division assignments have been fulfilled adequately.
Perhaps the most prominent problem of the Division is maintaining the spirit and morale of the airmen. The lack of information on their immediate futures has been disconcerting. While there are many rumors, and the officers have filled out questionnaires and have gradually been transferred, the airmen have received no official word on future assignments, except to retrain in the electrical career field. However, the enlisted personnel of the Division have reacted well to added responsibility and a much increased workload. Without exception, their performance has been gratifying.
An extensive continuing training program has been followed in the Division in order to maintain a highly efficient nucleus of personnel to perform under any operational demand. A relatively high turnover of personnel has required such a program to be fully utilized. It is our evaluation that we are fully prepared to meet any and all requirements requested of us now and in the future.
(1 July - 31 December 1956)
It is felt that the Nuclear Division personnel have performed their duties in a very satisfactory manner during this period from July to December 56. All Division assignments have been adequately fulfilled.
The most prominent problem of this division is the uncertain future of the personnel and lack of current technical information. The is not authorized at this station and personnel are therefore in an unstable position, liable for transfer at any time. The lack of technical information should be remedied in the near future by e new series of 11N-N Tech Orders. This information was received et the end of the reporting period in answer to a query sent to higher headquarters.
An extensive training program has been followed in the division in order to maintain a highly efficient nucleus of personnel under any operational demand. It is our opinion that we have a division fully prepared to meet operational requirements of the future.
