Friday. May 2. 1975 When t. Hood soldiers engage in field exercises they could be trodding ground where a village once stood. While driving vehicles across one of Ft. Hood’s many creeks and dry stream beds they could be crossing at a point where an old mill used to grind flour for the area’s inhabi- tants. Austin B. Whitehead vice president of the Ft.

T*r 21 VOL. 34. NO. 9 injured. I By RICH LAMANCE Three Fort Hood soldiers who found themselves with two weeks leave on their hands packed their bags upon returning from the field and began their thousand-mile ‘journey home. The trio who grew up together and enlist- ed together in just a few short hours would die together. Travelling straight through at a high rate of speed to “make time” the driver eyes heavy with sleep and foot cumbersome from fatigue drifted off the shoulder of the road towards his date with destiny. Flying 100 yards .down and over a 25 ft. embankment the late model auto flipped end over end settled upside down hurtling the driver and passengers like rag dolls across the desolate highway in the process. The scene while not pretty is a classic example of a one-vehicle accident. According to Post Safety Office ac- cident reports over 60 accidents since last July involved only one vehicle. About V3 of those drivers were fatally Because most victims of one-vehicle acc...

Friday May 9 1975 By ANITA ASHBAUGH Who says Army clerks and typists never go to the field? No one from the 2nd Armd. Div.’s AG Co. you can be sure of that. The men and women of the AG Co. and other support units just returned from a two- week exercise at Bastrop Tex- as where they participated in a test measuring the validity and efficiency of a division re- ar echelon. Over 500 2nd Armd. Div. soldiers traveled to what was once Camp Swift to take part in the exercise. They included the staffs from the division’s a in a SIDPERS personnel actions record and anagem ent postal and signal sections as ell a the division ata center. These sections operat- ed in much the same way they do in garrison but were tested on their effectiveness in sup- porting the division from 85 miles away. “This is the first time in the history of the Army that a division rear echelon has been tested like th is” said Cpt.

Page Four-A Dear Sir: The “Ft. Hood Sentinel” has once again done a fantastic job in publishing a rtic le which are derogatory to every female in the human race. The sexist attitude of the "Ft. Hood Sentinel” was very apparent in your April 18 issue. The est ito ria by “Esterlrod F. Oink” was in- deed an insult to myself and all other women in the service. Though this editorial may have been meant as a joke the “Ft. Hood Sentinel” should not have printed such an article. God did not paint men’s sk- in green either so what ex- planation does Mr. Oink have for an Army at all? And I do not consider myself indecent because I do not sit at home and watch soap operas. The front page article on prostitution was interesting re- wading but still derogatory Lest you find yourself sitting out on a glassy calm lake sipping beer and literally “reeling them in” this Sunday we think it’s only fair to warn you this Sunday is Mother’s Day. No matter if this is going to be the best fis- hing moon sin...

This was part of the afternoon’s schedule for the family The sun shone. The grass glistened with tiny drops of jdew.

They listened as CPT Jam es Henderson of 1st Bn. 78 FA 2nd Armd.

Page Eight-A The month of May is de'- sig ate by the om an Catholic Church as the month for special prayers and the saying of the Rosary. It is in this time when spring is at hand and the earth is bringing forth new fruits that special prayers are said for peace in the fam ily home and the world. According to the Constitu- tion on the Sacred Liturgy the Church honors the Mother of God when it celebrates the cy- is ’s a in mysteries (the Rosary.) For “Blessed Mary is joined by an inseparable bond to the saving work of her son.” Deeper Biblical insights have increased the awareness of Mary as the model of I faithful discipleship but it is \also the intention here to rein- force the Catholic sense of the -Blessed Mother’s present con- cern for union with the risen 'Christ. Since early tim es but ^especially after the Council of Ephesus devotion to Mary in the atholic Church has grown. The people of God Tuesday May 13 through Friday May 16 the chaplains of the 1st Cav.

age Ten-A W sd a is th a niversary of the W women's Army Corps (WAC). It will mark 33 years of dedicated service with their male coun- terparts in countries all over the world and in the continen- tal United States. Looking back over the pro- gress since the organization of the WAC in 1943 the words ‘‘You've com along way lady” indeed hold true. In 1939 when women as an organized unit publicly sought to become apart of the Army they ere granted neither military rank nor status. As the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps their role in the Army was more ‘‘service with” than “service-w ithin.” Privileges such as in surance veteran ’s benefits ^nd allotments for dependents were reserved for servicemen only. Things began to change in 1948 hen the W om en’s Armed Services Act was in- stituted.

Div.’s cam- paigns and portrayals of the division’s history he never thinks of how that medal or old uniform got there and what kind of process it went through before resting in that glass case. Attending to all those unseen details is the job of the curator fo th 2nd A rm d. iv. SSG S tale Walters. Cataloguing and re- searching all the artifacts that come into the museum is Walters’ description of his job. But that brief description does not include all the hours Walters spends trying to find the origin of an old war medal a a in it categorically so that it can be found easily again. About 75 per cent of his time is spent in a tiny room near DivArty Headquarters where W alters sorts through and catalogues boxes filled with books guidons medals and even sketches done by division soldiers overseas.
