Thurgday June 30 1955 a "Boy I never thought summer training would be like this!" was the comment of a wide-eyed sold­ ier from the 91st Armored Field Artillery Battalion. Kis sentiments were echoed by most of his unit who journeyed to Fort Crockett Texas to find there was more on the agenda than dismounted drill and lectures on seasonal hazards. The city of Galveston which surrounds the 111 Corps Summer Training Site proved to be a wel­ come host to the First Armored Division men offering them a wide variety of recreational fa- .. cilities. For probably the first time in their military careers they were out of bed long before reveille without the usual barracks gripes at the bugler. As early as 4:00 a. m. the long strip of beach which borders the post came alive with hopeful amateur fisher­ men tossing shrimp to the hungry fish in the Gulf of Mexico.

Thursday June 30 1955 "Private-Eyes" Call them detectives or "private- eyes" of the air these are the First Armored Division's aerial ob­ servers. "Aerial observers are the unsung heroes of modern armor" assures Captain John C. Burford chief of the Aerial Observer Training Course now being conducted here. "Who else can count the enemy betray his camouflage and radio his precise position to deadly artil- stations?" Captain Burford fled- "o succeed in their vital mission as aerial detectives hand-picked officers must return to school for extensive training in air-ground ob­ servation but only when there is a First Armored Division shortage of active observers. It takes eight to 12 company grade officers to make a class. From the fundamentals of flight itself to correct use of artillery fuses these trainees learn aerial observation in theory and practice. Whoever said "Variety is the spice of life" might have added "in training aerial detectives". For early summer mornings find train­ ...
