The observance terminates with the March 3 observance of the Naval Reserve's 51st anniversary. Lcdr. F. Valdes, commander of the Naval Reserve Training Center at Curwensville, points out that citizen sailors have played a large part in every military action in which our country has been involved since its birth. The 1915 law establishing a federal United States Naval Reserve provided a force of officers and enlisted personnel which have made mighty contributions to our Navy's ability to carry out its missions in World War I, World War II, the Korean conflict, the 1961 Berlin crisis, the 1962 Cuban crisis and the current operations in Viet Nam. Sixty per cent of World War I Navy personnel were Reservists. Eighty-seven per cent of World War II Navy personnel were Reservists. Many thousands served in Korea, and during the Berlin and Cuban crises. The active fleet today includes, on a continuing basis, almost 100,000 Naval Reservists on active" duty for two-year training periods or for longer periods. Rear Admiral D. C. Lyndon, USN, Commander Naval Reserve Training Command, on the occasion of the end of the 50-year anniversary observance says:^"Tbe history of the Naval Reserve is characterized by major contributions and significant achievement. Today in the worldwide operations of the United States Navy, the Reserve is continuing its support by "maintaining a trained and ready! pool of personnel and by participation of Reservists on active duty in (he Viet Nam area. The Naval Reservists here, in -the .Clearfield County area deserve the support and appreciation not only of their friends and relatives but of the community which they serve."
