Presmdent s Memorial Day message
Every year on this day, our citizens join in
honoring you, the men and women who wear our
nation's uniform, You risk your very lives to
defend the liberties we hold dear. Americans
everywhere recognize your dedication and professionalism, and all of us feel profound respect,
pride and appreciation for our armed forces.
As we commemorate the 50th anniversary of
the allied victory in World War II, everyone on
earth should pause to express heartfelt gratitude to those~ who fought and sacrificed in that
awful .conflict. We do no greater honor to the
memory of those lost in World War II than to
continue their fight against tyranny and oppressio~ .ewry~l~ffre~ ~
the past year. You have been called to serve in
lands far from home. You have brought freedom
and security to our friends and allies and humanitarian aid to those in need. In Haiti, you
helped restore democracy; in the Persian Gulf,
you faced down the forces of aggression; and in
central Africa, you delivered lifesaving food, water and medicine. Throughout the year, you
maintained the security of our country at home
and at posts around the world.
Whether you serve in the Army, Navy, Air
Force, Marine Corps or Coast Guard, your standards of excellence and your selfless service are
models for all Americans. I am proud to salute
you for your many extraordinary accomplishments.

He said he wasn't surprised
by the response. "People volunteered to help even though offi-.

it known they were available."
Oklahoma's governor, Honorable Frank Keating, visited

ELT mission at same time
A side note worthy of mention happened at the same time
of the bombing crisis. The FAA
attempted to request~he Oklahoms~Wing~s ~ance in locating i an ELT mission. Since
all inbound telecommunications traffic was being blocked
and/or rerouted by the telephone companies, the FAA
could not contact the wing directly and had to go through the
wing's chief of staff, Lt. Col.
Don Ross, located 90 miles
south of Oklahoma City in
Lawton, Okla.
Colonel Ross took appropriate steps, running the SAR effort himself out of Lawton. The
downed aircraft, which had
made an emergency landing in
a field and flipped over on landing, was located near Enid,
Okla., northwest of Oklahoma
Another save was credited
to the wing, and specifically to
Colonel Ross.

First delivery, a C-172, is scheduled for September 1996. By 1998,
2,000 aircraft will be produced, all
powered by fuel injected Lycoming
