Airman Apprentice Gary S. Pawlowicz, USN, son of Mr. and Mrs. Bill Pawlowicz, route 2, Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), has returned to the Naval Air Station, Alameda, California, following a three week refresher training cruise in waters near San Diego, as a crew member aboard the attack aircraft carrier USS Ranger.
During training, the 75,000 ton carrier underwent intensive damage control, engineering flight deck, navigational and departmental drills. Included were general quarters, man-overboard, and nuclear, biological and chemical warfare drills in the training.
To complete the training period, the Ranger conducted a complicated battle problem simulating war time conditions.
Upon completion of the training exercises, the Ranger was officially labeled "battle ready" and will continue preparations for her next deployment to the Seventh Fleet in the Western Pacific.
