From his office overlooking the Tarmac near the old control tower at El Toro Marine Corps Air Station, Brig. Gen. Harry W. Blot had a short answer to a ponderous question about being left behind while the 3rd Aircraft Wing went to Saudi Arabia--and possibly to war. "It is terrible," he said. Blot, 52, is scheduled to be promoted to major general this spring and possibly get his own air wing. He has been assistant commander of the 3rd Aircraft Wing at El Toro since February.

The new commander of the Marine Corps' western air bases, seeking to put to rest the scandal of the past four months, said Tuesday that Marine aviators do adhere to restrictions on the personal use of aircraft but need to be "more sensitive to perceptions" of wrongdoing. "Marine Corps policy is adequate the way it stands. I think the base directives are adequate," said Brig. Gen. Harold W. Blot. But "people have to be more sensitive to perception--it's not that anyone did anything wrong."

When Saddam Hussein was still a threat and Iraq's vaunted Republican Guard was feared but untested, young Jason Fain spent most mornings in his fishing boat just off Newport Beach, wondering how many American troops would not come home. The 21-year-old commercial fisherman feared that a resumption of the draft would take him from the job he loved so much and, more important, that the massive allied force assembled in the desert 12,000 miles away would ignite World War III.
