Navy Engineman Fireman Paul C Pribbernow, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ben Pribbernow of Route 1, Withee, Wis., recently participated in Exercise “Readiex 2-77” off the Southern California coast.

He is a crew member aboard the destroyer USS Hewitt, home ported at San Diego.

He was one of more than 10,000 men taking part in the seven day exercises, which include 18 ships and 100 aircraft. Navy Ships and aircraft squadron were joined by a Canadian aircraft squadron to test and evaluate current tactical plans and provide essential training for fleet units.
