Friday November 15 1974 Two hundred Ft. Hood Gama Goats will have their tailgates trimmed instead of replaced resulting in a savings of $15400. Requisitions had been sub- itte fo 261 ta ilg ate Replacements installation wide -due to damage. A close inspec- tion of the 261 Gama Goats •found that in 200 of these ^vehicles the tailgate could be fixed rather than replaced. Thje cost of each new tailgate is $94.89 as compared to the cost of $17 of the modification material for each tailgate fix —a total savings of $15400. Ft.

Every division in the Army has one such squad an Aerorifle platoon. Even in a strictly arm mored oriented division this platoon is con- structed to be an air mobile force. It is also a unit that un- til recently had no real system of being graded or tested. I think there are two reasons why the Army hasn’t much of a test for these units” stated Lt. Edgar Kleckley of 2/1 Cav. “Number one since there is only one of these platoons per division that means there are only 12-15 units of this type total in the Army.

Hood many people believe that dental care is theirs for the asking. In 1956 dependent care was ended for all CONUS installations except for certain isolated posts one of which is Ft. Hood. Fine you say. That means the wife can get braces right? Wrong! AR 40-121 which defines who is entitled to what services states that routine dental care is authorized at certain isolated posts (as Ft.

The a a a FORT HOOD SENTINEL “PUBLISHED IN THE INTEREST OF THE PERSONNEL OF FORT HOOD* FORT HOOD TEXAS FRIDAY NOVEMBER 22. 1974 By TOM WOLSFELD Since the truce was signed ending the United States’ involvement in Vietnam the country has been turning its interests in other directions. As the Prisoners of War basked in the sunshine of their triumphant return the country tried to forget its involvement and con- centrate on bringing about world peace. However there is one group that was overshadowed during this turn of events. They are the disabled veterans. They are the men who risked and sacrificed life and limb for their comrades and country and came up empty handed or with no hands at all. Past lives shrivel on the vine. Wives and girlfriends left a year earlier must now greet a man who is only apart of his former self missing an arm or leg or worse. Jobs requiring physical labor must be aban- doned and a career for a disabled man must be found. Earning a...

Page Four iffe 2 9 9 A ear. Arm trends pointing to colossal craniums Somewhere along the line the Army’s physical fit- ness program has reached a point where it is beiiig stressed mostly on paper. In the meantime the quest for development of the military mind began making headway (pardon the pun). The combination of the two has presented the Army with a massive problem that it might not have uncovered as yet let alone developed a solution. During World War I the American fighting man probably weighed an average of 160 pounds. Add to that 160 pounds a helmet that bore close resemblence to a soup bowl a pack full of survival equipment and assorted goodies a gas mask nearly as heavy as the weapon the troop carried and heavy clothing am- munition pistol belt canteen etc. and one might suspect the individual of tilting the scales at around 250 pounds fully loaded.

Page Twelve I'i' You might not give a second thought to th task of providing eyeglasses and adequate eye care for the members of the 2nd Armd. Div. But when you do give it second thought you realize that this also includes the dependents of all these person- nel: 14000 military personnel and their 22000 dependents. Not impressed by the size of the task? Consider that all this is accomplished by a staff of three enlisted people and two officers. Adequate eye care is an es- sential part of the whole aspect of health care. Good eyesight affects everything you do and dictates how well you will do it. From the soldier at target practice to the child in school trying to see the blackboard the responsibility for the eye care of everyone in the division plus their dependents is not a small one. That in- volves 76000 eyes you know! This chore falls onto the shoulders of the five personnel from the 48th Med. Bn. who run the 2nd Armd.

rid ay N ovem ber 2 2 1974 No one can accuse Willie Jones of not being a religious individual. Why? Because he evidently subscribes to the teachings of the ‘Good Book”. The Tanker coach used the following piece of scripture for his game plan last Sunday: Genesis 2:2 ‘‘And on the seventh day God finished his work which he had done and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had done.” Jones did rest last Sabbath. He rested his starting lineup in the Tankers’ 96-64 victory over Bergstrom Air Force Base. The day before Ft. Hood totally embarrassed the Barons 137-69 behind the scoring of Kenny Levergne Sherman Leath and Robert Chapman who had 30 25 and 18 points respectively. With the exception of Levergne the starting lineup for Sunday’s game was completely dominated by the second unit. Jones’ starting five for the ‘‘day of rest” consisted of “Jinx” Jones and Chapman at guards Cliff Johnson and Levergne at forwards and Mike J. J. Johnson at center. Jones’ act could be c...

Page Fourteen I I A Sports I By JERRY “PORKER” REED The first time I met Sid Gillman was in the Houston Oilers’ drafting room last January. He appeared to be the exact person described on page five of the 1974 Houston Oilers Media Guide. It reads like 'this: Sid Gillman the 62-year old dynamo who carried the Los Angeles Rams and San Diego Chargers to the top of ‘the pro football world is hard at work on perhaps the big- gest challenge of his life rebuilding the sagging fortunes K.-of the Houston Oilers. I couldn’t have put it any better. Definitely I thought if any man could turn the National Football League’s worse team into a winner it would be this new acquain- tance. Gillman had proven earlier in his career he could do the impossible so why couldn’t he do it this year. I know the Oilers had put back-to-back 1-13 records but if you’ll remember correctly Sid wasn’t always there. Gillman took over the head coaching reins of the Oilers five games deep in the ’73 season and the Houst...
