PERSONNEL SERVICES DIVISION

            The major continuing project of the Personnel Services Division for the period 1 July through 31 December was to maintain adequate athletic and recreational equipment and facilities. During this period the Recreation Hall was completely renovated and many new facilities were added.

            Facilities in the Recreation Hall include: An AAFMPS 16MM Theater showing 3 double feature shows per week; a Station Library (construction due to be finished in January); a general recreation area with four pool tables, two ping pong tables, card tables, dart boards and pin ball machines; a television area with a 24" T.V. set; a branch of Personnel Services Supply to issue and receive equipment utilized in the Recreation Hall; and a series of Bulletin Boards used to display current events, world news briefs and Group activities.

            Other equipment received by Personnel Services included six new hunting bows, a large quantity of fishing equipment and new Day-Room furniture. This was in addition to the normal stock level of athletic and recreational equipment.

            The Woodworking Hobby Shop continued to afford personnel an opportunity to display their carpentry talents. New shop equipment was received, and a fresh stock of wood was kept on hand at all times for purchase by the woodworking hobbyists.

            Work on the Photographic Hobby Shop, which is being constructed by this Division, came to a standstill during this period due to a sharp depletion of Division Personnel.  However, upon the arrival of additional personnel in January, work will progress rapidly and a completion date has been set for February 1957.

            A Ceramic Hobby Shop is also in the planning stage and work will begin upon the completion of the Photographic Hobby Shop.

            The outdoor athletic area has been improved during the past six months. It now consists of: Baseball field with backstop, two softball fields with backstops and bleachers, archery range, football field, two tennis courts, volley ball court and basketball court. An indoor gymnasium, which will be located in the new vehicle storage building, is also being planned.

            The second-year of Commanders Trophy competition began in July and by 31 December three of the seven competitions were completed. The 3034th Support Squadron won all three championships and the present 1956-57 standings are as follows:

                    3084th Support Squadron             58 points
                    3084th Headquarters Squadron      24 points
                    3084th Operations Squadron         21 points
                    3084th Security Squadron              0 points

The team members utilized the Westover AFB Alleys on Thursday nights. The 3084th ADG was also represented in the Westover AFB Classic Bowling League, and was in second place as of 31 December 56.

            Personnel of the Group participated in other athletic competition in addition to the intra-mural type of sports programs. The Stony Brook Cardinals Softball Team completed in the North-East Air Force (NEAF) Class "B" Conference Softball tournament at Westover AFB in August 1956, and placed third. As of the end of this historical period, the Stony Brook Cardinals Basketball Team is competing in the Westover Intra-Mural league, and is in fifth place. This team will be entered in the NEAF Class "B" Conference Basketball Tournament at Ethan Allen AFB, Vermont, the week of 18 February 1957.

EVALUATION

            All major problems that arose during the period of this report have been resolved and none existed at the time of this report. The operation of the Directorate of Personnel is functioning in accordance with prescribed directives.

            Morale of the organization is excellent. No problems can be foreseen that would tend to lower morale within the organization.

(1 Jan - 30 June 1957)

MISSION

(Supporting Documents Numbers 1, 2, and 3) [Ed. Note: These charts are the same as those included in the 1 July - 31 December 1956 period.]   Personnel assigned to duty in this Directorate as of the end of this historical report are listed on the attached manning chart. (Supporting Document Number 4).

MILITARY PERSONNEL DIVISION

            All discharges were processed through Westover Air Force Base Separations Center.  Percentages of discharges and reenlistments are charted on attached graph. (Supporting Document Number 5).

            Testing for Airman Proficiency Tests and Air Force Job Knowledge Tests, and other tests of that nature, were accomplished by the Test Control Office at Westover Air Force Base.

            These actions reduce by five, the number of personnel listed on supporting document Number 4.

            Personnel manning within the three squadrons and headquarters section of the Group is charted on the attached graph. (Supporting Document Number 6).

PERSONNEL SERVICES DIVISION

            The major continuing project of the Personnel Services Division for the period 1 January through 30 June 1957 was to maintain adequate athletic and recreational equipment and facilities. During this period the Picnic Area and the Otis Lake Development were completed.

            Facilities in the Picnic Area include: barbecue pits, a pavilion, a play area for children, a volley ball court, ping gong tables, swings, etc. Although the area has been open to general use, a few things must yet be accomplished.  Plans are being formulated to build a fence around the area, and to supply more facilities for the children's use.  At Otis Lake, the major portion of the facilities are constructed, but there remains the work of completing the roads, defining the swimming area on the beach, and obtaining a constant source of electricity.  Living accommodations are more than adequate with four trailers and a large hospital-type tent with wood floor and sidewalls.  The trailers are fully equipped with electricity, running water and sanitation facilities.  At the present time the electricity is supplied by two motor generator type units.  However, the local electric company has agreed to furnish the electricity if poles and transformers are obtained and installed by this station.  The roads, although passable, need grading and widening to be entirely dependable.  The permanent party personnel assigned to Otis Lake take care of the immediate necessities of the camp and supervise the recreational activities as well.

            Attendance at the Photo Hobby Shop has been very good over the past few months.  Supplies for the shop have been procured and a system of re-supply has successfully been set up.  The shop contains its own dark room, timers, a large print dryer, and cutting tables.  It is open three nights a week from sixteen hundred hours to twenty-two hundred hours.

            The Woodworking Hobby Shop was closed in mid-May due to the inadequacy of safety devices on certain key equipment. These devices have been procured and installed through the sheet metal shop on the station, and the hobby shop will be re-opened on or about 1 October.

            The 1956-57 Commander's Trophy competition was a great success with the 3084th Support Squadron as the winner with 115 points. This total set a new high in Commander's Trophy Competition.  Support Squadron won 6 out of 7 sports, namely, football, volleyball, bowling, shuffleboard, softball and golf.

            The Commander's Trophy competition ended as follows:

                    3084th Support Squadron            115 points
                    3084th Aviation Depot Squadron     43 points
                    3084th Headquarters Squadron       38 points
                    3084th Air Police Squadron             24 points

            The ten team bowling league which utilized the Westover Air Force Base alleys came to a successful ending on 6 June 1957 with the Vikings of Support Squadron taking the league championship.  A team from this station won first place in both winter and summer leagues of the Westover Air Force Base Classic Bowling League.

            This past season, Stony Brook entered many North East Conference tournaments.  The most outstanding of these teams, the bowling team, took seventh place honors in the Northeast Bowling Conference.  One outstanding winner of this bowling team, Master Sergeant Valador LaChance, was selected for the North East Conference All Star Team and continued on to the Air Force finals.

            The third year of the Commander's Trophy competition began in June 1957 and has just ended its softball season with the present 1957-58 standings as follows:

                    3084th Support Squadron             24 points
                    3084th Headquarters Squadron      15 points
                    3084th Aviation Depot Squadron      7 points
                    3084th Air Police Squadron             0 points

            In the near future, the Commander's Trophy golf tournament will be held; flag football will commence in the fall season and the Stony Brook Bowling League will get under way during September.

EVALUATION

            The operation of the Directorate of Personnel is functioning in accordance with prescribed directives. Morale is excellent and the only major problem is the loss of experienced personnel and the subsequent period of adjustment by newly assigned personnel.

(1 July - 31 December 1957)

MISSION

            The Directorate of Personnel is responsible for establishing and maintaining programs and policies for the administration of personnel functions and recreation.

            The Military Personnel Division functions to establish procedures for rapid and efficient processing of personnel records, and to perform administrative services to align personnel qualifications and organizational requirements. It further processes records for payment of personnel.

            The Personnel Services Division functions to improve morale and contribute to the welfare of personnel by providing operating facilities for recreation. Responsibilities are a sound athletic program and recreational activities.

ORGANIZATION

            The composition of the Directorate of Personnel, Military Personnel Division, and Personnel Services Division is shown on the appended organizational charts. [Ed. Note: Charts are unreadable.]  Personnel assigned to duty in this Directorate as of the end of this historical report are listed on the attached manning chart. (Supporting Document Number 4).

MILITARY PERSONNEL DIVISION

            During the period 1 July 1957 through 31 December 1957, the Military Personnel Division processed a total of 98 persons into the Group. 190 persons were processed out of the Group.  Of the 190 persons processed out of the Group, 40 were re-assigned to oversea bases, and 93 were discharged.  Of these numbers, the following actions affected personnel of this Directorate:

            CWO Bennett was reassigned to Shaw Air Force Base, South Carolina. Airman First Class Cote, and Airman First Class Harris were discharged.  Airman Third Class Gatley was reassigned to Japan.  Airman Second Class Dunbar has been alerted for assignment to Thule.  On 29 July 1957, Mrs. Johnie Green replaced Miss Judith Tobin following Miss Tobin's resignation.

            These actions reduce by five (5) the number of personnel listed on supporting document Number 4.

            Other Military Personnel Division activities include the processing of [f]our officers for integration into the Regular Air Force through the Augmentation Program, and the processing of two officers into the Regular Air Force under the provisions of AFR 36-65.  All six officers received confirmation of their Regular appointments during the period of this report.

            CWO Richard K. Hawley, Director of Personnel, reported on TDY to the 3079th Aviation Depot Wing for two (2) days on 7 November 1957. Conferences were held with Personnel Staff Officers of the 3079th Aviation Depot Wing, and Headquarters Air Materiel Command.  The purpose of the trip was to assist in the formation of policies and procedures of projected AMC-wide Sports Tournaments, and to formulate a program for the 1958 AMC Winter Carnival.  The scheduled events outlined during the conference promised to provide a most outstanding sports program.

            All discharges were processed through Westover Air Force Base Separations Center. Percentages of discharges and reenlistments are charted on attached graph. (Supporting Document Number 5). [Ed. Note: Unreadable.]   Personnel manning within the three squadrons and headquarters section of the Group is charted on the attached graph. (Supporting Document No. 6). [Ed. Note: Unreadable.]

            Testing for Airman Proficiency Tests and Air Force Job Knowledge Tests, along with other tests of similar nature, were accomplished by the Test Control Office at Westover Air Force Base. Finance services were also furnished by Westover Air Force Base. However, the Squadrons of this Group furnished Class "A" agents for the distribution of monies to individuals at this Station on pay day. A finance section manned by a personnel specialist was also maintained in the Military Personnel Division to assist personnel in making allotments, changes in pay status, and other financial matters.

PERSONNEL SERVICES DIVISION

            The picnic area, maintained as a recreational facility by this section, proved to be a great success.  Requests by individuals and squadrons were so great that the area had to be scheduled on an appointment basis to properly fulfill them.  On some occasions, more than one picnic was held at the same time.  Additional improvements were made to the picnic area such as fencing the playground and providing more play equipment for the children.  Funds to purchase additional play equipment were donated by the Non-Commissioned Officers' Open Mess.

            The recreational project at Otis Lake has been a great success since the Group picnic held there on "Opening Day", 4 July 1957.  A permanent source of commercial electrical power has been installed; roads have been graded, and improved; a swimming beach and boat docking area have been established.  Living facilities have been improved by laying tile in the dining hall and painting the living quarters.

            This area, with its improvements and facilities and the fact that we have three additional trailers, is expected to be in even greater demand, during the coming spring, summer, and fall seasons, and will continue to be a great help in maintaining high morale on this station.

            Attendance at the Photo Hobby Shop has increased.  Additional equipment and supplies have been requested to meet increased attendance and also to stimulate additional interest in this shop.

            The Woodworking Hobby Shop has been reopened on an appointment basis and more equipment is being purchased to make it more complete. Emphasis is being placed on safety in the shop.  The Woodworking Hobby Shop is open to all personnel who are interested in woodworking projects.  Picnic tables and additional equipment for the Otis Lake project are being constructed in this shop.

            The 1957-58 Commander's Trophy competition, which is still in progress, is proving to be a success with all squadrons, and personnel participating are showing a high degree of team spirit and enthusiasm.

            During the period of this report trophies were awarded in Touch Football, Softball and Golf.  The 3084th Headquarters Squadron Section won the Golf Trophy with a perfect record.  The 3084th Support Squadron won the Softball Trophy with a 22-5 record, and the 3097th Aviation Depot Squadron won the Football Trophy with a 7-2 record.

            Point standing for the Commander's Trophy are as follows:

                    3084th Support Squadron             29 points
                    3084th Operations Squadron         29 points
                    3084th Headquarters Squadron      25 points
                    3084th Air Police Squadron           15 points

            Other sporting events in competition for the Commander's Trophy are Basketball, Bowling, Shuffleboard, and Volleyball. At the present time extensive basketball and bowling schedules are being conducted within the Group.

            Bowling is in progress and the League is being conducted in three rounds.  The first round was won by the Hawks of the 3084th Headquarters Squadron Section.

            The six bowlers having the highest averages after having rolled at least 21 games as of 16 January 1958, will be selected to represent this station as a team in the ABC Bowling Tournament at Syracuse, New York. This Directorate is presently awaiting a firm date from ABD for our team to bowl in the tournament.

            The station's basketball competition is in full swing.  A team has been selected to represent the station and has been entered in the Springfield City League. Preparation for a team to represent this station in the AMC-wide Tournament at Hill Air Force Base, Utah, is in progress, and a determination of personnel who will attend, will be made in the near future.

 

            Other recreational activities, such as table tennis, pool tournaments and handball are presently being conducted. Teams for table tennis, pool and handball are being selected and prepared to compete in the AMC Winter Carnival at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in February.

 

            This section is initiating a plan to schedule more sporting events and other recreational activities in the future in order to stimulate more interest and to help maintain the high morale of personnel at this station.

 

EVALUATION

 

            The Directorate of Personnel is operating in accordance with prescribed directives. The preponderant problem is a continuing loss of experienced personnel, and the incident adjustments of maintaining an efficient operation without replacements.

 

            A high morale is evidenced on the station by the whole-hearted participation of officers and airmen in Group efforts, and the prevailing cooperative attitude of its personnel. The latest recreational projects, namely the Picnic Area, and the Development of Otis Lake proved to be a major undertaking; however, through the collective effort of the squadrons, this part of our mission was accomplished.

No problems of consequence were encountered.

MILITARY PERSONNEL DIVISION

            The division processed a total of one hundred fifty-seven personnel during the period 1 January 1958 to 30 June 1958.  There were sixty-three incoming personnel and ninety-four outgoing.  The outgoing were distributed as follows: Overseas, forty-six, ZI, nineteen, Discharged, twenty-nine.

            The "Early Out" program, the Regular Augmentation Program, and work on the new Unit Manning Document were the most important programs undertaken during the period.  Testing, including the testing for E-8 & E-9 remains in the hands of the Test Control Officer at Westover AFB, Massachusetts.

            A ten-team bowling league was sanctioned by the American Bowling Congress. The league played on the Westover Air Force Base Alleys. The league ended on 7 May 1958 with a two-team roll-off to determine the championship. The Hawks of Headquarters Squadron won the league championship by defeating the Air Police Watchdogs by 127 pins.

            Airman Second Class Dean Hemphill of the 3097th Aviation Depot Squadron won the Class "B" singles championship and Class "B" all-events championship in the Westover AFB Second Annual Bowling Tournament held in February and March 1958.

            Until 1 January 1958, Stony Brook Air Force Station was under the North East Conference Sports Program. In January Stony Brook came under the AMC Command Sports Program.

            On 17 February 1958, the Stony Brook All Star team composed of four representatives in the Ping Pong Tournament, two representatives in the Pool Tournament, and two representatives in the Handball Tournament went to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio to enter the Winter Sports Carnival. Staff Sergeant Clifford Brown won the AMC World-Wide Pool Tournament. The Stony Brook All Star Team, the "Cardinals", placed third as a team.

            Stony Brook was represented by an All Star Bowling Team at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio in February 1958. The team placed third in team events. Staff Sergeant Everett was selected for the All-AMC Team.

            The Fourth Year of the Commander's Trophy Sports Competition began on 2 June 1958 with Softball competition. The Fall '58 Sports Program will include the Golf League, a Softball Tournament, Flag-Football, and Bowling.

            The pine tree inclosed picnic area has been a very popular spot.  Weekends have been reserved for Stony Brook Personnel only. However, the area is available Monday through Friday to Westover AF Base Personnel by reservation.

            Four additional trailers were installed at the recreation area at Otis Lake and the popularity of the area has kept the eight trailers full most of the time.  The priority system of inverse order of rank has worked out very well.

            The Woodworking Hobby Shop has been open on an appointment basis but has received very little use. Activity is expected to increase when the new Auto-Woodworking Hobby Shop facilities are completed. The Photo Hobby Shop has been more popular. Approximately 25 persons per week take advantage of the facilities.

            Construction of the new Auto-Hobby Shop began late in June 1958 and is expected to be completed in September 1958.

EVALUATION

            There are no major problems confronting any part of the Directorate of Personnel. Morale of the station is high as evidenced by participation of Officers and Airmen in all Group efforts.
