REAR ADMIRAL CRAIG SAYS FAREWELL-In one of the most impressive ceremonies of its kind ever held at NAS Jax. Rear Admiral Kenneth Craig,
Commander Fleet Air Jacksonville and Commander Naval Air Bases Sixth Naval District retired last Wednesday! after 35 years oPhaval service. The scene was
the parade grounds of the Station. Thousands of men and officers assembled on the grounds with high ranking Navy officers and civilian guests also on hand.
After the Admiral was piped aboard with ruffles and flourishes he inspected the Marine Honor Guard (top left photo) for the last time. Center photo shows Ad-
miral Craig being relieved as ComFairJax by his chief of staff Capt. Grayston Weber (right). Following the reading of orders came a 13-gun salute and personnel
passed in review. A final tribute was added as six squadrons of planes flew in formation over the parade grounds climaxed by an 1KSD jet firing a 13-phoio-flash-
bomb salute. Rendering the salute during the passing in review in right photo are (left to right) Admiral Craig: Captain Weber; Capt. Nelson M. Head, chief of staffof
ComNabSix, who relieved Admiral Craig as Commander Naval Air Bases Sixth Naval District: and Vice Adm. W. R. Smedberg. Chief of Naval Personnel who
mace the opening remarks in which he praised Admiral Craig for his long and distinguished career in naval aviation.
