Page Six-A HOW hosts are a girl scouts The soldiers of the 2nd Sqdn. 1st Cav. played “big brother” recently when they hosted 100 visiting Girl Scouts. The girls ranging in age from 7 to 12 visited the 2nd Armd. Div. for a few hours last Fri- day May 30. The young scouts came from various troops in the area and spent several hours touring the 2nd Armd. Div. Museum and- the 2/1 Cav. motor pool. During their visit the girls were split into two groups one group toured the museum with its interesting depictions of division history. Meanwhile the other group visited the to pool here they swarmed over jeeps and were treated to a ride in an armored personnel carrier (APC). “I’ve been here once before but I still like it” commented one blonde-haired lass while ro in th ro th museum. “THAT’S CERTAINLY A NEW KIND OF CAR” The various armored vehicles which surround the 2nd Armd. Div. Museum held a particular fascination for the 100 Girl Scouts who visited the 2nd Armd. Div. area last Friday. Th...

Page Eight-A Going to see the chaplain is at one time or another the soldier’s sole path of help with his life while in the Army. Nowhere else can a man or woman find the answer or direction that at that moment is urgently needed and im- mediately received. The duties of the chaplains at Ft. Hood are varied. One can find the chaplain in any number of areas. He is often s'(5en in the field or at the motor-pool. W wherever the chaplain is found he is the one who most often hears the tenor o£ the troops’ feelings. The $iaplain represents a force tjhat can help them through some of the rigorous training $iat is a must in today’s Army.

age r-B Next kin offered aid By a regulation a retired soldier’s surviving next-of-kin is entitled to the same type of assistance that would be pro- vided if the death had occurred while the soldier was on active duty except that norm ally the death ra tu ity is not paid. tire death cases are handled ith the same urgen- cy as active duty cases if notice is re ce ive by the Arm y. Results of a recent sur- vey indicate that Arm casual- ty Offices received notice of retiree deaths within 48 hours in only 47 per cent of the cases studied. The other 53 per cent took an average of 25 days and precluded the A rm from pro- viding timely assistance to the next-of-kin. Experience indicates some retirees provide adequate in struction for the handling of their a ffa irs at the tim of th ir deaths. But in any cases the next-of-kin are not fully informed as to the type of assistance available. Retirees should advise their next-of-kin as to what action to take at the retirees death.

The songs re fle te th a a tio ’s arc fo something even if they didn’t quite know what. For nearly a decade music movies and an occasional television program concerned th lv ith io economic problems and filled their message with social significance. It didn’t mean a thing if it didn’t have that zing. Groups like Crosby Stills Nash and Young always con- cerned themselves with the problem of the day and reflected this concern in their songs.

Below are some representative queries. Addi- tional information may be ob- tained at any VA office. I received an honorable discharge after two years of service in Vietnam. Am I eligi- ble for burial in a Veterans Ad- ministration cemetery? A Yes. All of the original VA cemeteries as well as most of the cemeteries formerly un- der other government agen- cies are now incorporated into a national cemetery system within VA. You sould be eligi- ble for burial in any national cemetery having space ex- cept Arlington where the few remaining spaces are reserved for those who die in active duty or retired status and high gov- emment officials.

VOL. 34 NO. 14 I 2 A rt by Steve Grissom THrk'k'kirk 21 Black Jack Pershing Discipline above all John Joseph Pershing served his country during a dist- inguished Army career characterized by rigid bearing rugged service and unyielding discipline. His was a life exemplifying his nickname “B lackjack.” Pershing began as a cavalry officer fighting the In- dians his first assignment after graduation from West Point in 1886. Growing up in Missouri where he was born in 1860 he planned a career in law (he did eventually earn a law degree). But he won a competitive exam for entrance to West Point at age 22. One historian believes he lied about the month of his birth to avoid the age cutoff for the academy. If true without that prevarication the nation might have been denied one of its great military leaders. Black Jack was teaching tactics at West Point when the Spanish-American War broke out in 1897 in Cuba. His exploits included joining the charge up San Juan Hill with Teddy Roosevelt’s R...

Page Two-A group to be inoculated after George Washington ordered the use of smallpox inoculations. The Army switched from inoculation to vaccination in 1812 which laid the groundwork for smallpox prevention among the military and civilians alike. The Army also founded the first American school of preventive medicine and public health when the Army Medical School was established in 1893. Researchers at the school developed the typhoid vaccine that has almost eradicated the disease. Surgeon General George Sternberg who founded the school discovered the pneumonia germ and took the first micro-photographs of the tuberculosis germ. Army researchers studying the problem of respiratory training during recruit training isolated the German measle virus. This discovery led to the measle vaccine in general use today. The U.S. Army Burn Center at Brooke Army Medical Center Ft. Sam Houston has developed treatments that greatly increase the recovery rate from serious burns. One of the most impor...

Friday. June 13^1975 father' pay Holiday reminder: Take a ad to lunch This Sunday June 15 everyone will take out time to give dad his due. As with most holidays the beginnings of the ob- servance are rather fuzzy. People from such diverse locations as West Virginia Washington state Florida and Illinois among others claim to have played a role in the beginning of Father’s Day. Although there were small observances as far back as 1908 a Harry C. Meek of Chicago’s Uptown Lions Club began promoting the observance among Lions Clubs as the third Sunday in June. Mr. Meeks asked both Presi- dent Harding and President Coolidge to proclaim a na- tional Father’s Day. Strangely enough both refused from fear that the observance might become too com- mercialized. Mr. Meeks spent twenty years promoting the idea but at the same time would not endorse any products in an effort to keep the event from becoming commercialized. One campaign that received some official recognition was carried out by Mrs....

Page Four-A Throughout the next few days there will be speeches ceremonies and flag wavings by the score as the Army receives a pat on the back for its 200th Anniversary. Within such an atmospere it becomes all too easy to gild the past with a thin veneer of the “great moments” in history Washington’s exploits with the ax the speeches of such men as Nathan Hale and Patrick Henry and the bravery of the men at Lexington. While no doubt these patriotic stirrings are well and good we feel that it is important that we do not lose our objectivity. We must realize that the names that have rung so true in the hearts of Americans over the years are simply the names of men not minor deities not super heroes...just men. Following the Battle of Bunker Hill for instance the tiny Continental Army was more troubled by desertion than by enemy forces. The men who stood their ground so bravely behind the makeshift ramparts on Breed’s Hill soon lost their ardor- for the cause. Again at Valley Forge ea...
