Page Eight-A EDITOR’S NOTE: The following article is the second of a two part series discussing the Enlisted Evaluation Report (EER) supplied fay Army News Features (ANF). Last week’s article discussed the necessity of checking EERs after preparation. Apathy was indicated as being responsible for incorrect or in- complete EERs being filed and thereby hurting the careers of non-commissioned officers. A lieutenant ponders the brown lines that border the sheet of paper on his desk. The name in the upper left-hand corner of the official form to a commissioned officer old enough to be the officer’s father. The lieutenant faces a decision. How does the sergeant measure up? An E-7 stares at four iden- tical pieces of paper. Only the names are different. Their jobs are identical. The E-7 must decide how each cuts the mustard. The cycle has started. From now until summer from Benning to Berlin Polk to Pusan supervisors of enlist- ed personnel must come to grips with DA Form 2166-4 the Enlist...

Friday January 24 1975 *'v -v** Mrs. Vera Coles whose husband’s a tanker likes the Army. And likes to talk about it. “Charlie wasn’t in the Army when we first got married. But after awhile we decided to give Army life a try. “One of his reasons for joining and for reenlisting is college. He says that although it might take a little longer in the Army it’s easier and a whole lot cheaper. “The medical benefits are important to us too. Our bills would have been impossible as civilians. Plus the doctors have been outstanding. You know they don’t treat you like you’re just another case. “But basically we’re staying in because we’re happy here as a family.

Page Two-B “To be average is to be as dose to the bottom as you are to the top.” This slogan adopt- ed by the men of the 1st Bn. 41st Inf. (Mech) is one reason the “Blue Destroyers” are the victors the fourth successive time for the 2nd Armd. Div. Commander’s Cup. The cup presented semi- annually is presented to the top battalion in the division who has amassed the most points in all aspects of sports competition. A total of 1414 points were awarded to the in- fantrymen for their participa- tion sportsmanship and ac- complishments. The 1st Bn. 67th Arm. made the rivalry a dose race pulling in 1353 points to clinch second. Placing emphasis on being number one Lt. Col.

id a January 24 1975 People have told the story of a young government worker fresh on his new job of agricultural improvement. He called on a farmer early one morning and talked to him for almost an hour about how he could show the farmer how to double his farm’s output. The farmer listened and at the end of the lecture looked at young man and drawled “Son I don’t farm half as good as I know howto now.” is in a is television’s position. They’re not programming half as good as they know how. GOODSTUFF! When they really get to work the media can turn out excellent material. The four- part Ben Franklin shows are tremendous. “The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteu” is consistantly high quality. We’ll ignore reluctantly the fine PBS programming. Specials on everything from hunger to UFOs have been broadcast re- cently almost all are very good. MIRROR MEDIA Yet (for a change) this I S N O A IG A TELEVISION.

Page Two-A s. cC lendon ■‘Hey Mom can I use the car?” are words to strike ter- ror into the heart of any parent. When these words first started to crop up in my household about a year ago I was no exception. I was unwilling to have my son drive my car for many re- asons some of them valid some of them I’m sure with Freudian overtones. The most obvious of course was fear for his safety. em em bering my own “flaming youth” complete with drag races lowered-in- the-back coupes and “chicken races” I feared to completely trust in his good judge- ment. This is very unfair to be sure. But what parent how ever unconsciously doesn’t require their children to pay dues on their own adolescent escapades?

Friday January 31 1975 With the advent of the new rotational brigade program Brigade '75’’ to the 2nd Armd. Div. support is as im- portant as ever. The soldiers of the Iron Deuce’’ will have the always necessary support when they are accompanied to Germany by the 2nd Armd. Div.’s new 498th Spt. Bn. If the new battalion has the pretense of a miniature sup- port command it’s no mis- take. The unit is intended to be just that. Although the bat- talion consists of only three companies it is designed to handle all the requirements for support in the same man- ner as its parent unit. Besides being a compact support unit the battalion is unique in another sense. While the co at its of the division’s brigades will rotate back to Ft. Hood after their 179-day tour in Germany the approximately 500 members of the support battalion will be making a permanent change of station. This means added preparation for the soldiers before their move to Europe. Shots passports weapons a if a a language cla...

Page Four-A Coffee helps staff through the day For want of inspiration and perhaps just a bit crazed by the spring-like weather that has befallen Ft. Hood for the last few days we found ourselves exceedingly strapped for a subject to grace this week’s Focus column. A hasty staff conference produced two pleas for un- iform violations to be rehashed another for a column concerning the stocking of area restrooms with flowery toilet paper and one request that a bid for male equality be made the latter offering a multitude of possibilities none of which could be printed. Hence a subject that was not only free of controversy but also opened up the way for imaginative creation was selected at random. This week’s subject should strike home to a majority of troops at Ft. Hood in that most come in contact with the subject at least once during their military career. To end the suspense let us introduce our readers to the “coffee pot” perhaps the most beloved item found in the country store. It...

Friday January 3 1 1975 February 2 1975 marks the 74th anniversary of the Army Nurse Corps as a permanent corps of the Army Medical' Corps. It is a most appropriate time to reflect on the long as- sociation of nurses and the military. The Continental Congress of 1775 authorized medical sup- port for the Continental Army which was to include one nurse for ry ten a tie ts. Originally their duties were. largely housekeeping and their pay scale was two dollars per month. RECOVERY ROOM A patient just brought to the Recovery Room from the operating room is attended by Lt. Marcia During the Civil War both Union and fed erate hospitals were served by nurses many of whom were members of religious orders.
