Here's How! At Norman, Okla (4 of 16)
|WELCOME TO P.S.C. NORMAN|
Our mission is simple to get you home as soon as is humanly possible. In doing so, we don't want you to miss out on any vital point that may mean everything to you in your future civilian life.
Yes, we know how you feel. In short, it's to GET HOME period! And, we agree. BUT, you may have little or no idea of the benefits you, as a Veteran, have awaiting your USE of them. Our job is also to make sure you don't miss a trick. For that purpose, our carefully trained Ship's Company and officers work seven days a week to give you the complete story in the shortest possible time.
You can save your time, - and ours, - by CAREFULLY reading all the information in this guide. Do it as soon as you can after your arrival here, --- if not before. Then ask all the questions you want while you're here.
Remember, above all, that the personnel at P.S.C., Norman, are doing a huge task FOR YOU. But it will only be through YOUR cooperation and adherence to Station regulations that they can get you out in the minimum time, - with the maximum gold-mine of information (dollars for your future).
