If naval personnel are to. be released in accordance with their eligibility, why not the Air Force, too? My husband (a builder by trade) has been in the Air Force nearly five years and has recently returned from a 14 months' "tour" of a sweltering Pacific island and it seems highly probable he will be back there again soon. If men of one Service are being released, surely it is only fair to treat the other Service the same. The Air Force is certainly the most difficult Service from which to obtain a release and if a "points" system was introduced, as for the Navy, then there would be no question of deserving men being retained against their will. Five years of living in one small room when you have children is no joke. FED-UP AIRMAN'S WIFE.
