Page Four Commissary opening provides entertainment Grand openings are programmed to be entertaining and fun and the opening of the new Ft. Hood Commissary was no exception to the rule as can be attested to by the thousands who visited the massive complex on opening day Tuesday. Various commercial foods companies had represen- tatives in the store passing out sample taste teasers to patrons as they roamed through the huge jungle of items. Cheddar cheese and crackers was apparently the favorite stop with one gentleman obviously staying to dine as he scooped handfuls of the tasty morsels and dumped them down his food chute. While such sustenance might not be approved by a board of health as supplying the minimum daily adult vitamin and protein requirements the man hardly seemed concerned with anything other than filling his stomach at the time. “Now this is the way to shop” he re- marked with his mouth full etiquette'doubtfully his forte. Some amount of confusion did result also as co...

Page Ten Guard Reserve active During the summer many turn their thoughts to outdoor recreation Bar-B-Ques outing on the lake and camping in the woods. However for the many whose time is dedicated more to soldiering than fun-in-the- sun summer means National Guard and Army Reserve training support. Here at Ft. Hood all Guard and Reserve units are billeted at North Ft. Hood (NFH) while they train with the divisions and the 13th COSCOM for two weeks. Administrative support for them is provided by the 1st Pers. and Admin. Bn. 13th COSCOM at the Reserve Rein- forcement Processing Center and logistical needs are pro- vided for by another COSCOM battalion the 553rd S&S Bn. who sets up the Site Support Headquarters (SSH).

Hood. As the sun came out by race time however the racers were joined by an estimated 50 spectators. Several novices were among the 20 Ft. Hood registrants while the remainer of the field was from the Texas Spokes Sports Car Club of Austin. The course layout is dif- ferent for each autocross event and Sunday’s course of- fered a particularly demand- ing com bin atio of fast straights and tight corners. Several dramatic spinouts oc- curred but there were no acci- dents no injuries and no damage to cars. The day’s closest contest oc- curred in the race for second place in Class 3. While John Colgin dominated the class in his Midget only four-tenths of a second separated the four cars which followed. Standings changed with each run until John Grabowsk...

It’s really no surprise. What with all those $600 rebates it’s not unusual for more and more people asking “how much is that doggie in the window?” Such is the case of the Texas Rangers. They’ve been wondering along time how much this “doggone” good pitcher cost. Fergie answered that question this week. This baseball great who’s won twenty or more games in seven out of the last eight years in both the National and American Leagues reportedly had been seeking $200000. According to the Rangers’ principal partner Brad Corbett the club stuck with it’s original offer. They just spiced it up a little bit. Get this ...

Jo rdan was previously named “NCO of the Quarter” at the battalion level and 2nd Armd. Div. NCO of the a rte r’’ for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 1974. When asked why he chose to compete for the honor Jordan explained “I’m strictly Army. I believe a guy should be sharp at all times. A good NCO should compete in this sort of thing to set an example. It gives initiative to the younger soldiers so they’ll try to achieve the same thing. “The questions got tougher as I went before each suc- cessive board” Jordan stated. He said the questions centered on current events and general military knowledge. “A lot counts on just your military appearance and bearing’’ Jordan added. Recently Jordan was honor graduate of his Basic Noncom- missioned Officer Education System (Signal) class at Ft. Gordan. Jordan is the se...

age Sixteen By S. McClendon The adage of bringing the mountain to Mohammed as a means of accomplishing an end is perhaps as old as civilization itself. The fact that the concept works has been de- strated any times throughout the ages and more recently by the 2nd Armd. Div.’s Unit of Choice (UOC) recruiting team. Unit of Choice literally takes the 2nd Armd. Div. to the public coast to coast. Using a •variety of approaches UOC puts the division in the •spotlight before audiences everywhere. The “Iron Deuce” a van containing a mobile collection of information concerning the •division is one example of br- winging pertinent facts about •the 2nd Armd. Div. to the public. The Iron Deuce” logged some 30000 miles dur- ing the past 12 months making stops from coast to coast Another is the eye catching ‘funny cars” sponsored by the division. There are two of [these unusual vehicles both guaranteed to draw a crowd wherever they appear. One is in the configuration of a tank complete with outsi...

Armored Personnel Carriers (APCs) are designed for various things but one of those functions is not to serve as a submarine. So imagine the shock of the men of the 1st Bn. 41st (Mech) Inf. 2nd Armd. Div. to see an APC of "C” Co. ride over a small knoll and begin to slide down the short mud covered slope toward a small pond. The vehicle and its crew were part of the battalion participating in a training ex- ercise at North Fort Hood. As the men of 1/41 watched in amazement of APC treads un- moving slid into the pond and launched itself like an ungain- ly battlecruiser. The APC floated away from shore at its crew scrambled out and stood on top of the marooned vehicle. The carrier filled with water quickly and with the men on top signaling frantically began to sub- merge. Not all men had time to get out before th...

Div. was an armored division with anew com- manding general and the Army had its first indepen- dent air cavalry brigade. Historic indeed! It was a fitting end to the re rg an iza tio process which began more than 20 months ago and which by its conclusion had made Vkwmmm* its ark felt on every unit and every individual in the First Team.

We have noted on past occasions that this season brings about numerous changes in nature and the whimisical no- tions of homo sapiens. The coffee beans in Mrs. Olsen’s back yard are pushed aside by marigolds and roses Mr. Clean takes his annual bath and Ole Taurus begins eyeing feverishly the walking milk dispensers sharing the pasture with him. Well this year we shall dispense with such rot and get down to the bare facts if we may be so bold. Spring will according to prognosticators in this office continue to induce the particular brand of fever that makes sloths of otherwise industrious individuals. 1 However say the same individuals this is where any similarity to past springs will end. Marigolds and roses will be forsaken by they of the green thumbs due simply to the fact that ...

Friday February 28 1975 For richer for poorer for better or for worse. These words are becoming more and more apart of division person- nel vocabulary. Although there are 8796 single personnel in the 2nd Armd. Div. as of Jan. 27 the married personnel aren’t far behind with a total of 7521 married personnel in the division. Like anything else Army life has its advantages and dis- advantages. The married personnel along with the single personnel seem to agree with this. It was quite obvious in most conversations though that the married couples wouldn’t have it any other way. On the con- trary the singles seemed to believe that being single and in the Army was definitely an ad- vantage. Private 2 James Riley “A” Co. 142d Sig. Bn. 2d Armd. Div. is not too thrilled with the idea of getting married while in the Army. “I would not con- sider marriage while in the services.
