VOL. 9 No. 9 By LAWRENCE T. FRIEND The bed's a little softer. The food tastes better. And maybe that clinging caliche stuff will disap­ pear with just one more trip to the shower. For many of the First Armored Division's fighting men these ob­ servations remain valid this morn­ ing—the second after "D plus 16." "D plus 16" was Tuesday. Throughout the day two combat commands and supporting elements of the division rolled into garrison after 17 days of tough though make- believe battle on the Fort Hood Reservation. The men of the First Armored left the battlefield with two major iv re in north—and two in the east.

To make itself a more potent force in today's atomic-age the Army is testing new troop formations in its subordinate units. Among the most important of these tests was the recent 17-day field exercise involving the First Armored Division. In it the First Armored Division Aggressor activity didn't dwindle after the setback however Nui­ sance-type patrol action on both flanks by the 25th Reconnaissance Battalion and 553rd Armored In­ fantry Battalion caused the "en­ emy" to cover in a defensive shell.

Thursday March 3 1955 By MERLIN D. FISHER The Army at Fort Hood has the atomic cannon the "Corporal" and "Honest John" rockets but accord­ ing to the men in Ward A-22 at Kthe U. S. Army Hospital Fort Hood pias two weapons more lethal than any of these. In appropriate ceremonies in the officers' ward last Friday certifi­ cates of recognition were presented to the "grand champion and cham­ pion snorers" Capt. Edwin A. Walter of the 25th Armored In­ fantry Bn. and Lt. Col Loyal W. Tacker Dental Corps respectively. The ceremony and citations were the product of Lt. Col. Terrance C. Fitzgerald's mental fertility. Colonel Fitzgerald IH Corps G-3 Section read the following com­ mendation before his fellow patients: "Whereas it is appropriate to render due recognition to those members of the Armed Forces of the United States for highly out­ standing accomplishments they may perform during their tenure of service it is right and fitting that Captain Edwin A.

Page Ten By JOHN MASHEK There's an old saying lhat an Armored Division is only as good as its vehicles. And it naturally follows that this mobile-type division can't get any­ where without smooth operating track and wheeled carriages. Judging from the current vehicle deadline rate of the Fourth Armor­ ed Division the worry of non-op- erative or partially disabled ve­ hicles is a thing of the past. Division ordnance figures reveal the deadline for wheeled vehicles is an astoundingly low .2 per cent while the track deadline is an equally amazing .8 per cent. Dead­ line statistics and percentages are computed by the number of ve­ hicles on hand in the Division against those in battalion or ord­ nance shops for repair. Deadlining falls into one of three categories: 1. Vehicles which are inoperative due to defective or worn parts. 2. Vehicles that will become dam­ age by further operation. 3. Vhicles that are unsafe to op­ erate. Ordnance Job The mainspring behind the di­ vision's overal...

In order to do this job the Fort Hood Finance Office is divided into four divisions with each division having three to four individual branchs.
