Navy To Hold “Answer To
Pearl Harbor” Enlistment
(Raleigh, June 1) ln.
ceremonies held simultan
eously at seven Tar Heel
cities exactly six” months
from the minute Japanese
planes struck Pearl Har-
Jbor, North Carolina will
join the nation on June 7
in a huge Navy recruiting
drive to be known as “An
swer to Pearl—Hiubor
Day.” ~y
At 2:25 p. nr, next Sun
day, a commissioned naval
officer will administer the
oath of enlistment to con
tingents of naval recruits
in elaborate public cere
monies at Raleigh, site of
the main Navy recruiting
station for the State, and
the sub-station cities of
Asheville, Charlotte, Salis
bury, Greensboro, New
Bern and Wilmington.
“At the exact moment
scores of North Carolina!
recruits fling the Pearl
Harbor challenge back inj
the teeth of the Nipponese,!
thousands of other
Americans will be repeat-;
ing the same oath almost!
word for word at the 400
Navy recruiting stations
throughout the land,” said
Lt. C. B. Neely, Navy re
cruiting chief for the]
State;
The Navy Department
has announced the relax
ing of routine Navy recru
iting regulations fori June
7, so that an unlmited
number of men can be ac
cepted and enlisted on the
spot at recruiting sub
stations. Under normal
procedure, men are accept
ed at sub - stations and
given transportation to a
main station for final exa
mination j and enlistment.
But for this half-year an
niversary of one of his
tory’s most treacherous
acts, recruits will be enlist
ed on'the basis of sub-sta
tion physical and mental
examinations.
“Men will be examined
and enlisted at Raleigh or
any of the sub-stations in
North Carolina up till the
actual hour set for the en
listment ceremonies,” as
serted Lieutenant Neely.
“A commissioned officer of
at least the rank of lieu
tenant (junior grade) will
be at Asheville, Charlotte,
Greensboro, Salisbury,
New Bern, and Wilming
ton —where normally a
non-commissioned officer
is in charge—to administer
the oath of enlistment ”
North Carolina has al
ways led the nation in fur
nishing men for the Navy
in war or in peace, the re
cruiting officer said. “June
7 will be an especially dra
matic and significant time
for the Old North State,
whose sons are constant
examples of courage and
patriotism, ■" to again lead
the United States in fur
nishing x men to help the
Navy defeat the Japanese
aggressors. I am sure
North Carolina will res
pond to America’s call
since Tar Heelia was one
of the 13 original states.”
