»j Thursday. June 26 1975 Fast cars great weather and pretty girls were all in abundance last Sunday for another round of thrilling drag action at Ft. Hood’s Railhead Drive. A 16-year old San Antonio driver in his debut at the track piloted a Woody Gilmore full-bodied 1800 cubic inch Chevy AA/FD through some fantastic qualifying runs. Ray Urbach proved to be atop notch competitor. Modified eliminator saw Cliff Williams of Killeen take his ’66 Nova to first place with an edge over Killeen’s Phil Kesler in a 1962 Falcon. As is evident by recent tragic accidents at the lakes near Ft. Hood far too many military personnel and their dependents do not know how to swim. With this in mind 2nd Armd. Div. Rec. Services begins again this year its “Learn To Swim’’ program a series of five classes of two hour duration each. Under lifeguard supervision men and women from Ft. Hood and their dependents will be instructed on proper swimming techni- ques. “So far e’ve had a pretty good turnout” states...

Page Fourteen “I need a change. I’m tired of this place! There’s nothing to do around here! Sound familiar? Have you uttered these words at one time? Are you shaking your head in agreement now as you read this? Then what would you say if someone told you “You have it good things have been worse” You’d probably say they were crazy! Why not talk to the first sergeant of “A” Co. 142nd Sig Bn 2nd Armd. Div.?.He may be able to tell you a few things that have changed since he was a private in “A” Co. approximately 15 years ago. First Sergeant Senator G. Mon- teloro said “I appreciate the Army of today because of the many changes that have taken place. It was quite a different Army when I was here at Ft. Hood as a private. Monteloro was drafted June 29 1960 went to Ft. Jackson for basic training and then was as- signed to Ft. Hood for on-the-job training as a radio teletype operator.

Page Sixteen- The immediate years preceding the Civil War might be called the Frontier years. The Army was spread all over the country from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. In 1855 Surgeon General Lawson made three important recommendations to bolster the Medical Department for its task in caring for the widespread troops. First he recommended that the number of officers in the department be increased. Second he asked for the enlist- ment of competent persons as hospital stewards to belong to the non-commissioned KCEN-TV -NBC Temple-Waco T.

Thursday June 26 1975 As any car owner knows cleaning the col- lected mud and oily film from the family bus is no easy job and it’s an even tougher job to clean up Army vehicles after they’ve been used in strenuous field exercises. However Hqs. MASSTER (Modern Army Selected Systems Test Evaluation and Review) is currently testing several devices which may ease a soldier’s job of cleaning Army vehicles and equipment. The devices being studied at Ft. Hood are commercial cleaners that use steam and high water pressure. They are similar to the units at a self-service car wash but on a higher level of performance. Since March four different steam cleaning units have been in use in various units at Ft. Hood and will remain in these units until December as soldiers test them for usefulness effectiveness safety training requirements and the amount of maintenance needed. All the systems run on 220 volts of electricity and have not been modified for military use but are the same as commercial...

Page Eighteen A recent message from Forces Command (FORSCOM) at Ft. McPherson encourages a volunteer sponsorship program for thousands of Vietnamese military refugees now in reset- tlement centers in the U.S. and those in the pro- cess of being moved from overseas staging areas. The Secretary of Defense has en- couraged individuals social groups such as wives clubs and commands to take part in the sponsorship program. Historically the Army family has responded to humanitarian appeals of this type. A spirited response at this tim will expedite the sponsorship program and help get the friends of the U.S. out of the refugee centers and reset- tled. Active divisional associations such as the Na- tional Guard U.S. Army Reserve Association of the U.S. Army Reserve Officers Association and Non-Commissioned Officers are only a few that could lend assistance. In order to implement the sponsorship pro- gram a Joint Refugee Information Clearing Office (JRICO) is being established in the Pen- t...

I Four-wheel-drive commercial vehicles straight off the automobile production lines are currently undergoing a series of rugged tests at Ft. Hood to determine if they are suitable for Army use. The tests being conducted by Head- quarters MASSTER (Modern Army Selected Systems Test Evaluation and Review) are examining the vehicles as possible replacements for the M-151A2 ^-ton truck now used by the Army. Basically the M-151A2 is an expensive vehicle that must be militarized with special parts and equipment before it can be used by the Army. “Therefore the purpose of this test is to see if we can find a commercial four- wheel drive vehicle that can perform the same functions in some roles as the M-151A2 at a reduced cost to the govern- ment” explained Major C.D. Thompson the MASSTER test officer “The main saving is expected to come from stan- dardized replacement parts that are already on the production line.” The ten vehicles being run through their paces at Ft. Hood include two CJ5’s...

But for the Army some Fourths in the past have been grim celebrations of combat. The Fourth is no picnic in a foxhole. In units throughout Fort Hood are soldiers who spent July 4 in war zones during Vietnam Korea and even World War II. Their experiences make up the fabric of a different kind of Fourth of July story. It is a tapestry of sacrifice that exemplifies what the Fourth is all ...

age Two-A EDITOR’S NOTE: Fast paced inflation and static military salaries during past years has actually brought about a decrease in the purchasing power of Army families. A variety of methods of stre tc in the budget particularily when it comes to food are being sought One area often overlooked by military families is food stam ps. This method of stretching a family’s buying power is currently used by 80 military' families at Ft. Hood only 10 per cent of the estimated number of those eligible. The following is a look at food stamps from the inside. By DENYS FRITC’H Food stamps as with any govemment- lfunded and administered operation requires time patience and proper documentation to prove qualification. Initial contact with the local offices whether that office be located in Killeen Cop- peras Cove Belton or Temple is with a re- ceptionist. Whether the applicant contacts the office by telephone letter or in person an in- formation form describing the family income and shelter exp...

Page Four-A Something is wrong. The story on page 2A of this week’s Sentinel is all about the Federal government’s food stam program and what you have to do qualify. The program supposedly was designed to help low- income Americans buy more and better food so as to im prove their diets and therefore their health. Yet if a government employee meaning a soldier can qualify for food stamps (a number can) there must be something wrong with the way the soldier is being paid. The Federal government is saying on one hand You do not make enough money to provide your family with an adequate diet.’’ On the other hand the government is saving But as a soldier in the modern all-volunteer Army you are well paid and have every reasonable financial need fulfilled by a grateful nation." There are at least two explanations. Perhaps there is something wrong with the criteria used in determining who should get food stam ps. Maybe people who don’t really need them are getting the stamps. That would exp...

Page Eight-A By SUNNY McCLENDON The small white frame house sits atop a gen- tle hill just off Killeen Highway 190. The square one story structure is of a type that can only be described as ‘‘cozy." Inside it is almost too cozy as the muggy early morning heat makes the small bedroom oppressively close. Even a thin sheet is too much cover on such a humid morning and so it lies obligingly on the floor where it was kicked during the night. The metallic ring of an alarm clock breaks the peaceful if overly warm morning silence. Exactly like scores of soldiers throughout the Ft. Hood area Robbie Kieth Henry reaches out and unhumorously pushes in the bothersome button on the back of the clock. He rests a moment eyes still heavily shut and slowly brings his thoughts into focus. Resisting the temptation to ‘play possum’ just a little longer he allows his better instincts to take charge and swings his legs off the side of th£ bed onto the floor. This accomplished he observes a ritual he ha$ r...
