Page Four-A ??lY.nSL Christmas 1974 Style Christm as—what can we say? The story has been told in far greater a manner tham we could ever hope to attempt. The Christ child was bom in a stable in Bethlehem wrapped in old swaddling cloths and yet worshipped by wise men from afar shepherds in their fields and the heavenly hosts. The Bible tells us that His coming was foretold by angels to shepherds guarding their flocks. “Behold” said the Angel of the Lord For I bring you glad tidings of Great Joy.” And the shepherds listened as the promise of the birth of the Son of God was given. And a star of great mag- nitude appeared in the heavens and led them to the place where He was bom. Other stories have since developed as man garnished an already perfect story. The animals danced. The little drummer boy played his drum for a miracle and rebirth of faith. But despite the commercialization and occasional distortions Christmas remains intact celebrated by mil- lions around the world. The Christ...

Across post the early mor- ning darkness was being in- vaded by searchlights scan- ning the skies. An air of tension had settled on this CenTex post as Charge of uarters stood by the hotlines awaiting the message that would send CDs scurrying to their companies and bring troops out of their barracks and into hasty formations. It was the moment that had been eagerly awaited for over three months. It was Christ- mas Eve and only the ar- rival of Santa Claus could have provoked more excitement. Word was received and quickly passed on that the sub- ject of all the excitement had been sighted over Austin and was headed for Ft. Hood. The tension was building.
