They are likely to give you an answer something to the effect of “Sure about 60 per cent of the people in my unit are smoking marijuana There are many preconceptions about marijuana usage. First there is too much gray area surrounding the effects of marijuana. That is nothing is proven as fact. Marijuana MIGHT CAUSE CHROMOSOMAL DAMAGE MARIJUANA MIGHT lead to harder drugs marijuana MIGHT cause cancer. Mari- juana does not cause physical dependence and its immediate effects are no more severe than alcohol. This is not to say that the Army plans now or in the future to legalize marijuana or ig- nore its use by military personnel. It is still illegal and punishable under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). There are also programs established at Ft. H...

Thursday July 31 1975 Carpooling can relieve the two most common headaches that drivers in the Armed Forces just can’t seem to kick. Everyday a driver is bound to become confronted with the problem of saving gas which would eventually soothe* his other problem of saving money. But before any kind of saving can be enjoyed the driver must first brake” himself maybe then he’ll stop and learn the advantages that carpooling offer. Highway experts at the Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Ad- ministration commonly agree that commuting to and from work accounts for approximately one third of all privately accumulated gas mileage in the United States. These experts declare that with an average 1.3 passenger load compounding the problem of gas mileage it would seem shocking to know that 700000 barrels of oil per day can be saved nationwide by increasing the passenger load with just one person. Twenty billion gallons could be conserved annually with three to four passengers in eac...

Thursday July 31 1975 “There must be abetter way! Surely that thought must have crossed the mind of every Texas motorist forced to stand in line at motor vehicle registration time. Well now there is abetter way. At least beginning Jan. 11978 there will be. If all goes according to plan the traditional long waiting lines prior to the registration deadline (April 1) will be a thing of the past. As if to complement the “multi-year’ license plate adopted this year Governor Dolph Briscoe recently signed House Bill 1924 provid- ing for a year-round motor vehicle registration system in Texas. The bill was authorized by State Representative Bob Simpson of Amarillo and passed by both houses of the 64th Legislature. Under the new licensing system there will be 12 registration deadlines instead of one.

VOL. 34 NO. 22 Troopers of the 1st Cav. Div. will celebrate the 54th anniversary of the division’s or- ganization today and tomorrow. Although several activities incident to the concurrent gathering of the 1st Cav. Div. Association will occur throughout Cav. Country most of the organization day celebrations will be in the vicinity of Prichard Stadium. One of the few exceptions of the Prichard Stadium setting is the scheduled memorialization of a classroom in the new 2d Bde. barracks complex. The ceremony is set for 10:30 a.m. and will honor SGT Jimmy G. Stewart a skytrooper with the 2d Bn. 12th Cav. 1st Cav. Div. who was killed in action in Vietnam in May 1966. Sergeant Stewart was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor. Track and field trials will dominate Thursday’s schedule inside the stadium while a variety of mission displays around the stadium will attract entertain and inform vis- itors there. Judging for the mission displays will begin at 10 a.m. Friday’s action includes a ...

Page Tw o-A 2nd Armd. Div. under new CG Major General George S. Patton assumed command of the 2nd Armd. Div. during ceremonies held at Ft. Hood’s Sadowski Field replacing Major General Robert L. Fair. Major General Patton takes command of the 2nd Armd. Div. which was commanded by his father General George S. Patton Jr. in 1940 and 1941. This is the first time in the United States Army history that a son has taken com- mand of his father’s former command. Generals Patton and Fair inspected the com- mand in a World War II half-track and then ex- changed the reins of command with MG Pat- ton receiving the colors from LTG Fair through LTG Robert M. Shoemaker III Corps and Ft. Hood Commander. Addressing the troops for the last time Fair said “I do want to congratulate each and every soldier in the Iron Deuce. You make up not just a good division but a great division. One that can move and one that can fight. I’m very proud of you.” Opening his remarks to his command Patton said he did so...

Thursday August 7 1975 By DAVE RIMEL While almost all the units in the 1st Cav. Div. have been reorganized converted redesignat- ed or reactivated in the process of its recent massive reorganization one Cav. unit remains committed to "No Change." If anything the 41st Cav. Div.’s famous Horse Cavalry Platoon is more committed to the past than ever before. The platoon is a living breathing saber- »wielding sweaty and sometimes tobacco- ■t chewing museum of the 19th Century U.S. Cavalry. They are straight out of away of life I which passed away ith our rea t- grandfathers one-hundred years ago. The platoon a Central Texas attraction since its formation nearly four years ago has grown from the inital four color-bearers on borrowed horses to a strength of 27 men 24 horses and 4 mules today. The horses and mules are the pro- perty of the 1st Cav. Div. Association which also serves as the official receivership for all the platoon’s other property. The platoon is authentic in every detail. ...

Page Four-A I First Team. By choice for the most part some men are married and some are not. While this statement is hardly pro- found it does lead to a point much in need of the telling. Why should married men be forced to babysit with single men at Ft. Hood as well as throughout the Army in the form of Charge of Quarters and Assistant Charge of Quarters? The married soldier has chosen his lot in life either prior to or after entering the Army. He is still called upon by his unit to perform on occasion the functions of supply sergeant answering service TV schedule service go- for janitor mother baby sitter etc. while his family sits home alone deprived of a husband. While a married soldier is performing these functions he is further handicapped by the barrage of ridicule and taunting insults levied against him by his single coun- terparts. Add to these worries the fact he has left his family un- protected in a community known to contain a criminal element you have what might be ter...

But right outside the store you can buy the same can of soda for 25 cents from the machine. Why the three cent difference? Who knows mavbe it has something to do with efficiency. PHANTOM COMMENDS SOLDIERS OF “HELL ON WHEELS” Today August 4th 1975 the Phantom observed the change of command for the 2nd Armd. Div. Many of us watching could not help feeling proud and inspired as the soldiers of the “Hell on Wheels” passed in review. Proud? Yes proud to be in the same uniform that these men and women wore these soldiers who are the 2nd Armd. Div. It is always difficult to determine the source of a soldier’s incentive for performance. In some it is born of a personal pride and devotion. In others it results from concerned leadership by commissioned and non-commissioned officers. Whatever the case may be the Phantom commends and cong...

Page Six-A I r* jp*. i? s? •j J* By ROY D. HOLT '.•C The United States cavalryman who served on '^the Western frontier actually saw little of the /•glory ride such as publicized on the screen. He CSpent much of his enlistment in camp or in gar- -.rison. His lot was no bed of ease. C\ To prove this let us look back at two frontier .• cavalry posts in Texas about a century ago: •Camp Colorado in Coleman County and Ft. Concho in San Angelo. Federal and state agencies and interested citizens have restored and preserved the his- tory of some of the old frontier forts in Texas and all over the West. Among the forts in Texas are Concho Davis Belknap Richardson McKavett Lansaster Sam Houston Clark and others. Many of the other old posts although rich in history are long since almost forgotten. FT.

Thursday August 7 1975 a Almost one year after its creation the 1st Cavalry Division’s “Cav Academy” has borne out its reputation as one of the Army’s most ambitious educational projects. Consolidated and centrally located in Cav Country the in- stitution is believed to be unique in its concept of designing educational programs to fit the needs of its individual students. The centralization of counseling diagnostic testing and teaching facilities serves as a con- venience to troops who have been able to ac- complish all their educational needs with a one stop process. High school classes leading to either a diploma or GED equivalency certificates pre- paratory classes for GT retesting and all ad- ministration are under the same roof in the old hospital area on Battalion Ave. Also in the complex are counseling services leading to on-site or on-campus college level classes catalogs and counseling on Army cor- respondence courses and the Professional Development Center and MOS library....

Page Ten-A John McMullen The 1st Cav. Div. boasts in its ranks today a man who has soldiered with both the British Army and the US Army. He is PFC Geoffrey Lewis 27 of HHC 2nd Bn. 5th Cav. A ember of the British Army for six and a half years from 1965 to 1971 Lewis enlisted last year in the U.S. Army. Six months ago he arrived in the First Team. Although he drives a jeep for the Black Knights” right now his MOS is 11 Echo” or tanker. He started out as a tanker in the British Army and advanced to tank gunnery instructor by the time he left it. So with the tank battalion he’s assigned to here he should feel right at home. When his battalion takes tank gunnery training he’s called upon to serve as an assis- tant instructor (A I). When Lewis came in the Army last August he took basic training and AIT at Ft. Knox. He adjusted quite well he said and had little dif- ficulty learning the ways of the American Army. One area which did present a problem for awhile was drill movements. “Several...

Div. made a big splash in the new field house swimming pool last Tuesday and Wednesday as they took first place in the 1st Cav. Swimming and Diving Meet. Taking advantage of their strong swimmers the 2nd Bn. 12th Cav. swam their way to a strong 36^ points to put them ahead of the pack. They were particularly strong in the relays.

Page Two-B By BARBARA SORENSEN The new Ft. Hood Dragway has passed the halfway mark in its first season as anew site for drag racing. January the racing site was moved from Robert Gary Airfield to Railhead Drive near Prichard Stadium. Racing buffs have been enjoying the sport at Ft. Hood since 1958. The speedway is open to everyone. "The only requirement is a drivers license and a car that can pass the safety check each car has to go through before allowed on the race track" informed Ronnie Hughes of recreation services motor sports. There are three different racing categories on the National Hot Rod Association’s track. The first is stock cars raced according to their elapsed time during the time trials before the races. For this category the race is usually a Bracket Race. Each car is placed in a class according to their elapsed time. If one car is in a slower class racing against a faster class at the start- ing light by going first he is given the dif- ference in time. “This Bra...

1 Tttiirsday- August 7 1975 O I* *1 a. Si 'J By JOHN GRABOWSK1 First Team troopers have long enjoyed a notorious reputation for plastering the Cav.’s “blanket patch” on everything that would stand still long enough to be painted. So widespread was this practice that it gave rise to a joke which followed the First Team out of Vietnam. The story defined a 1st Cav. advance party as “one public information officer one photo- grapher eight riflemen and twenty gallons each of yellow and black paint.” Ranking only second to the inescapable ••Filmy was here” graffitti of earlier days a symbol itself of the presence of the American GI the demonstration of the Cav. patch goes one step further. It stands as irrefutable evidence of the Cav’s presence a proclamation that “This is Cav. Country.” There was no mistaking the Cav’s presence when the patch appeared so boldly on moun- tainsides in Korea and Vietnam and on the sides of buildings everywhere the Cav. passed through- It’s the largest patch...

First opened in August 1971 only three months after the First Team returned from the Republic of Vietnam the museum has undergone several significant alterations. The two most obvious physical changes in- cluded the opening of anew display wing in the closing weeks of 1973 and the creation of Broumas Memorial Park in late summer 1974. The wing which runs off the museum’s main display hall contains two walls of floor-to- ceiling glass front display cases full of US and foreign firearms.
