said. Thurman also highlighted other
important keys to a successful deployment: they include properly caring for
equipment, protecting operational
security, maintaining force protection
and enforcing discipline, standards
and values.
Riling added his sentiments to
Thurman’s.
“Good discipline is enforcing the
standards,” he said.
“Good, solid leadership starts at
the company level.”
Riling also discussed the need to
keep Soldiers — of all ranks —
informed and ensure that every
Soldier, regardless of rank, has a battle
buddy and that they need to check on
each other.
Thurman and Riling also visited
other members of the 3rd HBCT during
the two-day visit.
At each stop the two told Soldiers
how proud they were of what they had
accomplished and said there was “no
doubt ... you can get the job done.”
Have a safe Veterans Day.

Opinion/Editorial
On Veterans Day thank, honor those who’ve served
Commentary by Maj. Gen. Robert
W. Mixon Jr., commanding general,
7th Infantry Division and Fort Carson
“To us in America, the reflections of Armistice
Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism
of those who died in the country’s service and with
gratitude for the victor …” — President Woodrow
Wilson, Nov. 11, 1919
Nov. 11, 1919, “Armistice Day” as it was once
called, was declared as a day for all Americans to
remember the sacrifices that our Soldiers made
during World War I, and to rejoice and celebrate
the end of a bitter war.
Armistice Day continued to be a tradition until
1954 when it was renamed “Veterans Day” to
honor veterans of all wars. For 86 years since that
first Armistice Day, Americans on the 11th day of
the 11th month at the 11th hour, reflect on the
great sacrifices our veterans have made worldwide
in answering the call of freedom.
Today, as our nation is at war, freedom is once
again assaulted by terrorists who kill innocent
men, women, and children as a means to promote
their hateful ideology.
Once again, our Soldiers are in harm’s way
responding to a global campaign of fear with a
global campaign of freedom. Once again, our
Soldiers, like those who served in places such
as the hedgerows of Normandy, the hilltops of
the 38th Parallel and the jungles of Vietnam,
are patrolling the streets of Baghdad, Tal Afar
and Rhamadi.
They, like the generations of Soldiers before
them, believe that America’s mission is to defeat
an enemy and give strength to a nation that represents a beacon of hope in the part of the world
that is desperate for the freedoms that Americans
What do you think are
the best and worst
aspects of the ACU?
enjoy and hold so dear.
Our Soldiers believe that
women and children should be
allowed to go to school. They
believe people have the right to
practice the religion of their
choice, but most of all, they
believe that freedom is worth
fighting for.
I am often asked, what does
Veterans Day mean to me? And
I am sure many of you have
been asked the same question.
My response is always the
same. “Veterans Day is a day
to thank and honor every
American who has served, and
who continues to serve, this
great country of ours.”
For 230 years, the
American Soldier has answered the nation’s call.
Those who volunteer and answer the call to duty
are willing to give more than they take.
They are driven, I believe, by love of country,
a devotion to duty, and a willingness to sacrifice
everything so others might live in peace and
freedom.
The Global War on Terror is a war unlike any
other this country has fought. It is a war that has
tested our resolve, but while the enemy may be
different, the reasons to fight are the same: to protect the American people; to preserve our freedom;
and to ensure a peaceful future for ourselves, our
children and grandchildren.
Words can barely begin to express the thanks
to all those who have served, to those who are
serving, and those who are joining the ranks of

our great military.
I am deeply grateful for the
men and women who wear the
uniform, who have taken the
oath to defend our constitution
and our nation.
I am also grateful for the
military families, for they, too,
have a burden to carry during this
time of uncertainty.
The torch from our aging veterans has been passed to today’s
Soldiers who now courageously
stand point and engage the enemy
that threatens our freedom.
Someday, these veterans,
our Soldiers, will pass the torch
to those who will fill future
ranks, and that torch will proudly
burn and continue to show
the beacon of freedom and serve as a symbol
of America’s commitment to oppressed
people around the world.
So, on this Veterans Day as we gather with
friends and family, take a moment to remember
those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our
county, remember the missing, celebrate the
living, and recognize all who today fight to defend
America’s freedom.
God bless you and keep you safe this Veterans
Day weekend, and may he continue to bless our
great Army and forever bless the United States
of America.

DoD health program to help redeploying troops
by Jim Garamone
American Forces Press Service
WASHINGTON — Service members returning
from deployments will now participate in a postdeployment health reassessment program that all the
services are instituting, defense officials said at a
Pentagon news conference Nov. 4.
This new program will assess the health — both
physical and mental — of service members some 90 to
120 days after they have redeployed.
“We recognize that deployments may have an
impact on the health and well-being of our service
members, and we know from research that health
concerns are identified even several months after
returning from operational deployments,” said Dr.
William Winkenwerder, assistant secretary of defense
for health affairs.
This new program is in addition to the routine
post-deployment health screening that all service
members go through upon return to the states from a
deployment. More than 900,000 service members have
already gone through that program.
The reassessment program is designed to find
service members whose symptoms don’t show up
immediately. The program aims to get them the help
they need, the doctor said.
The program builds on test programs the services
have conducted since June. The Army, Navy and
Marine Corps tested the program on 3,000 service
members. Medical officials said the pilot program was
effective and now look to expand it to all returning service members.
Those three services plus the Air Force — which
started the test program in September — will institute
the program in January 2006, officials said.
Key elements of the program include outreach to
service members, education and training for service
members and their families, screening of service members, assessment by medical professionals, evaluation
and treatment and follow-up.
The Army, Navy and Marine Corps will do the
assessments face to face with the service members.
The Air Force plan calls for airmen to answer an online
survey and incorporate the survey in with their members’ annual physicals.
Winkenwerder said the results so far do not indicate that the Global War on Terror is affecting “service
members or their families in ways different from past
wars. What’s different is the way we’re responding.”
The assistant secretary said that it is important that
military leaders, service members and clinicians
understand the process and buy into it.
“Effective education to gain leadership support
and service member participation and optimal clinical
practice is critical to the success of this program,”
he said.
Health officials want to destigmatize the process
of service members going to health professionals for
mental or physical help. Returning combat veterans
shouldn’t believe they must deal with the stresses they
experienced by themselves, said Navy surgeon general
Vice Adm. Donald Arthur.
“Everyone who goes into combat is in some way
psychologically affected,” he said. “I don't think you
can get around that fact.”
He said it’s significant that the military is
addressing the issue upfront “with people who understand combat because they have also been there and
can more readily talk with the Soldiers, sailors, airmen
and Marines who are coming back.
“We have learned that we shouldn’t let our combat
veterans go out into society without any questions
asked or without any contact, as we used to do,”
Arthur noted.
The admiral said early contact with service members reduces stress and takes care of family issues,
noting that “combat is inherently stressful.”
Winkenwerder said active-duty and reservecomponent personnel will be treated exactly the same.
Unit commanders are charged with ensuring service
members participate in this program.

43rd ASG uncases its colors
Story and photo by
Spc. Curt Cashour
14th Public Affairs
Detachment
Members of the 43rd Area
Support Group’s Headquarters
and Headquarters Company
marked the unit’s official
return to Fort Carson with an
uncasing ceremony at Manhart
Field Nov. 2.
Before returning to the
United States in early
September, the unit spent a
year in Kuwait, where 43rd
Soldiers provided logistics
support to U.S. and Coalition
Forces in Kuwait, Iraq and
Afghanistan.
At the ceremony, nearly
150 troops stood in formation
as 7th Infantry Division and
Fort Carson Commanding
General Maj. Gen. Robert
W. Mixon Jr. and 43rd
Commander Col. Scott Lang
praised the unit’s performance
during the deployment. Other
distinguished guests included
Colorado Springs’ Mayor
Lionel Rivera.
Calling 43rd one of
Carson’s proudest units, Mixon
said the unit’s Soldiers made
vital contributions to the War
on Terror. He then thanked the
Soldiers and their families for
continued service to the nation.
“Every generation has its
heroes. This generation and
these Soldiers to my front are
no different,” Mixon said.
Lang used his time at the
podium to tout the unit’s
many accomplishments during
the deployment, 43rd’s second
in support of Operation
Iraqi Freedom.
Coalition Forces Land
Component Command officials
called on 43rd for some of the
most complex logistical missions in theater and the unit
didn’t disappoint, Lang said.
After arriving in Kuwait,
CFLCC officials assigned
43rd more than 2,000 active
duty, Reserve and National
Guard Soldiers.
With the help of HHC
troops, the Soldiers made a
number of accomplishments,
including helping more than
250,000 U.S. and coalition
troops transition in and out of
theater, receiving, storing and
clearing more than $3 billion
worth of ammunition and outfitting about 14,000 vehicles
with level-3 armor, Lang said.
Staff Sgt. Al Rood, platoon
sergeant for HHC’s 2nd
platoon, said that although it
felt great to represent 43rd
during the ceremony, his
proudest moments came during
the deployment.
“We set a standard over
there in Kuwait that I don’t
think anyone else will be able
to touch,” he said.

Care, wear of the new ACU
by Spc. Clint Stein
Mountaineer staff
On June 14, 2004, the 229th birthday of the
U.S. Army, the new Army Combat Uniform was
unveiled during a cake-cutting ceremony in the
courtyard of the Pentagon.
Now, more than a year later, many Soldiers at
Fort Carson are wearing the new uniform, but many
have mixed feelings on how it compares to the old
uniform functionally and tactically.
Soldiers who have already been issued the ACU
may have noticed that taking care of their new duds is
much different than the battle dress uniforms they once
wore. One of the more obvious changes in caring for
the ACU is that it is not to be starched, dry cleaned or
hot pressed — which is the exact opposite of how
most Soldiers care for the BDU. Having one’s uniform
highly pressed and boots shined is the standard when
Soldiers are wearing the BDU. With the ACU, if a
Soldier starches his uniform it can affect the service
life of the fabric, which is meant to be wrinkle-free.
Each set of ACUs comes with a wash/handling
manual to help ensure Soldiers care for their new
uniform properly. According to the manual, the ACU is
to be machine washed or hand washed in cold water
using a mild detergent that does not contain optical
brighteners. A list put out to various units on post by
Command Sgt. Maj. Terrance McWilliams, 7th Infantry
Division and Fort Carson command sergeant major,
names several detergents that contain optical brighteners. For a copy of the list, Soldiers should ask their
noncommissioned officer in charge or commander.
After washing, the instructions state that the
uniform can either be hung dry or machine dried at a
low- to medium-setting, not to exceed 160 degrees.
To help keep the Velcro on the uniform from sticking
to other pieces of laundry during wash and dry
cycles, the instruction manual calls for the removal
of all patches. Spc. Mike Ivie, a tanker in the 1st
Battalion, 68th Armor Regiment, who was issued the
ACU this summer advises Soldiers to not only take
the patches off, but to also take the ACU out of the
dryer immediately after the cycle is finished. “If you
take them (ACU) out right when they’re done drying
and hang them up, they won’t get a single wrinkle in
them and they’ll look good.”
Ivie said not having to spend the time and money
caring for the ACU is something he can get used to
quickly, but when it comes to buying the new
uniform, the expected cost has him concerned. At a
predicted price of $34 more than the BDU or DCU,
Soldiers may be reluctant to reach into their wallets
when the ACU reaches Military Clothing and Sales
Stores. But, Ivie thinks that not paying to have the
ACU professionally cleaned and pressed might save
him and other troopers money in the long run. On an
average of $3 per uniform per week to have them
cleaned, the laundering expense can be much more
than the cost difference of the uniforms.
Not having to pay for starch or dry cleaning services of the ACU is one of the benefits to the new and
improved uniform, according to the Program Executive
Office Soldier Web site. The PEO Soldier is the organization that helped design and develop the ACU.
According to the Web site, although savings and
versatility are benefits to the uniform, the change was
made because of functionality. The BDU and DCU
were not practical with modern war environments, said
Sgt. 1st Class Jeff Myhre, the clothing and individual
equipment PEO noncommissioned officer in charge.
The ACU was designed for today’s Soldier by the
Soldiers, he said. The PEO Soldier tested the uniform
in the field by Soldiers who gave their input on what
changes should be made, if any, and what they liked
about the ACU. After many months of testing, the new
ACU emerged as the new uniform of the Army.
One of the functional changes that Sgt. Inez
Martinez,1st Battalion, 8th Infantry Regiment, likes
about the ACU is the inserts in the trousers for knee
pads. Martinez said with the BDU and DCU the knee
pads would slide down to his feet making it hard to
move around. “When the knee pads fall down you
can’t run, and every time you need to kneel down you
have to pull the pads back up,” he said. “With the
ACU, you don’t have to worry about that happening.”
Aside from the inserts for knee pads in the
uniform, there are also other changes that both
Martinez and Ivie said they like about the ACU.
Ivie said having pockets on the sleeves was a great
idea for improving the uniform, especially when wearing the Interceptor Body Armor System. “The IBAS
covered all the pockets on the DCU. It makes sense to
have pockets where you can actually use them,” said
Ivie. “I like where all the pockets are on the ACU.”
Another improvement made to the uniform that
Ivie likes is the draw string. He said the adjustable tabs
on the waist of the trousers on the BDU and DCU
would eventually wear out and not hold. The draw
string around the waist of the ACU trousers and the
ankle cuffs work much better than the waist tabs.
The major complaint that both Ivie and Martinez
have about the ACU is the use of Velcro patches.
Martinez said it doesn’t make sense to have something
that could make a lot of noise on a combat uniform, but
Ivie said because the tabs and
patches are attached with
Velcro he will take them off
during times when he has to
be quiet. “It might be a pain
to keep taking the patches
off and putting them
on all the time
before missions,
but if that’s
what it takes to
control noise
discipline,
than I’m
going
to do it,”
he said.
The
biggest
change to the
new uniform
that Ivie and
Martinez like the
most is the tan
boots. “The desert
boots (compared to
the black boots) feel
like sneakers,” said
Martinez. “I’ll never
wear a pair of black
boots again.”
According to
recent updates to Army
Regulation 670-1,
Martinez may never
have to wear black boots
again. Soldiers are
authorized during the
phasing in of the ACU to mix certain apparel items of
the ACU with BDU or DCU, like the tan boots.
For Soldiers who joined the Army after Oct. 1,
having the option to mix uniforms isn’t an option.
According to PEO Soldier, the ACU is now the initial
issue at basic combat training for Soldiers.
McWilliams said these Soldiers may be arriving to
Fort Carson by the first of the year and they will not
have the BDU, nor are they required to purchase any.
For Soldiers who have the BDU and wish to
purchase the ACU, Myhre said they may want to
wait until after the rapid fielding initiative takes
place. The RFI is supplying deploying enlisted
Soldiers with new combat equipment, to include two
of the ACUs before they deploy.
Units that have already received the ACU through
RFI are the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment, 3rd Heavy
Brigade Combat Team and the 10th Special Forces
Group. A schedule of units that are to receive the ACU
can be found through the PEO Soldier Web Site.
For those Soldiers who don’t want to wait to get the
ACU, the tentative schedule they will be in at the
clothing and sales store at Fort Carson is January, said
Mary Sandaball, assistant manager of clothing and
sales. “But it can be as late as April until we get them,”
she said. “The actual date still hasn’t been locked down.”
Sandaball said that when the ACU does arrive
that it doesn’t mean the store will be taking the BDU
off the shelves. “We may not have as many, but will
keep the BDU around until the phase-out date.”
According to PEO Soldier the tentative phase
out date for the BDU will be May 2007.

the ACU visit the PEO Soldier Web Site at

Fight good fight of faith for eternal life
Commentary by Chap. (Capt.) Mike Reeve,
1-68 Armor
The Apostle Paul challenges us in 1 Timothy
6:12 to “Fight the good fight of the faith. Take
hold of the eternal life to which you were called
when you made your good confession in the
presence of many witnesses.”
Paul is quick to remind us, not only in this
verse but in many others, of the need for heroism
and dedication in the living out of our faith.
Veterans Day brings to mind many heroes,
living and dead, who have served heroically and
with dedication.
Near Kasan, Korea, on Sept. 10, 1950, Cpl.
Gordon M. Craig, 16th Reconnaissance Company,
distinguished himself by conspicuous gallantry and
intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty in
action against the enemy.
During the attack on a strategic enemy-held hill
his company’s advance was subjected to intense
hostile grenade mortar and small-arms fire. Craig
and four comrades moved forward to eliminate an
enemy machine gun nest that was hampering the
company’s advance.
At that instance an enemy machine gunner
hurled a hand grenade at the advancing men.
Without hesitating or attempting to seek cover for
himself, Craig threw himself on the grenade and
smothered its burst with his body.
His intrepid and selfless act, in which he
unhesitantly gave his life for his comrades,
inspired them to attack with such ferocity that
they annihilated the enemy machine gun crew,
enabling the company to continue its attack. Craig’s
noble self-sacrifice reflects the highest credit upon
himself and upholds the esteemed traditions of the
military service.
When the Apostle Paul compares faith to a
“good fight” he has the example of the dedicated
Soldier in mind.
In II Timothy, Paul challenges us to endure
hardship “like a good soldier of Christ Jesus”
(2:3-5). The warrior knows the mission and never
accepts defeat. His goal is always to “please his
commanding officer” (II Timothy 2:4).
These thoughts beg the question, “What if we
applied that same ‘warrior’ level of excellence,
tenacity, dedication and heroism to our faith?”
Too often we muddle around in puddles of
uncertainty without a sense of spiritual direction
or purpose.
This world is full of things and events that will
attempt to distract you from the battle. In the Bible,
James tells us that “the one who doubts is like a
wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the
wind” (James 1:6). You face a battle whether you
realize or not. It is the battle of faith.
The mission God has given us is clear
(Ecclesiastes 12:13-14). The question then is
simple. Will you take the mission to heart and
will you see it to completion?
Are you living heroically in this great battle
or do you need to renew your dedication to the
mission and the eternal life “to which you
were called?”
Thank you to all warriors who have sacrificed
so much for the mission.
Thank you for challenging us by your example
to live and fight heroically even in “the good fight
of the faith.”

Renter’s insurance ...
Why you can’t afford to live without it
Story by Spc. Aimee Millham
Mountaineer staff
Service members renting or living on post often
don’t get renter’s insurance because they either
assume nothing bad will happen to their residence
or because they think they can’t afford it.
According to Army Community Service
Financial Specialist Patricia Randle, “The question
isn’t can you afford renter’s insurance, the question
is can you afford to be without it?”
Seventy percent of service members who
request an Army Emergency Relief loan because
of a house fire do not have renter’s insurance,
Randle said.
And, though she has no hard evidence on the
matter, if GMH Leasing Manager Lynn Rivera were
to guess, she’d say that only 50 percent of families
on post have renter’s insurance.
There are many reasons renter’s insurance is
important, and there are several things service
members should consider to ensure they ask the
right questions of their insurers to get the right
coverage, said Randle.
The first step service members should take is to
inventory all of their belongings, including how
much they paid for each item and its current value,
according to Mitch Swanda, a certified financial
planner with USAA Financial Planning Services.
Randle recommends service members take
photos of or film their possessions. “Now, don’t go
and store those records in your house,” Randle said.
She suggests keeping those records in a safe. The
records can help determine a service member’s
coverage needs and can also serve as proof of
ownership if a loss occurs, helping the insurance
company to make a proper estimate of payment.
Next, service members should determine if they
want a “replacement-cost” policy, which covers the
cost of replacing lost items at today’s prices, or a
“cash value” policy, which covers what the item is
worth after depreciation, said Randle.
According to Swanda, although it typically
costs about 15 percent more, many renters find
replacement-cost coverage to be a better value.
It is important that renters realize the value of
their property and have enough coverage for it, said
Rivera. Even if a natural disaster occurs, a family
living on post is only covered by GMH for $20,000.
Usually, the actual value of most service members’
property far surpasses that amount, Rivera said. For
this reason, residents should be sure to properly
estimate the value of their property.
The best place to start for coverage is through
a service members’ car insurance provider, said
Rivera. Many car insurance companies will add
renter’s insurance coverage to the service member’s
premium for a relatively low cost.
Service members should be mindful of the fact
that companies place limits on property coverage,
Randle said. For example, a typical policy might
limit total payments to $200 for cash and coins;
$1,000 for valuable papers; $1,000 for theft of
jewelry and watches; and $2,000 for theft of guns.
So, if service members have specific items
they’d like fully insured such as weapons, jewelry or
electronic equipment that are worth more than the
policy limits, they need to get coverage specific to
those items, said Randle.
Renter’s insurance not only protects belongings
but can provide liability coverage.
If a visitor slips on a wet floor and is injured, a
service member could be held responsible for
thousands of dollars in medical bills. In this type of
situation, a renter’s insurance policy could cover
the costs up to a certain limit, according to Swanda.
For military personnel who relocate frequently,
another advantage of renter’s insurance is its
portability.
During a move, most renters’ policies cover
personal possessions during shipment or while in
storage. It is especially important for military
personnel to look for a renter’s insurance policy that
does not contain territorial limits. A policy without
these restrictions will cover belongings nearly
anywhere in the world, with few exceptions.
Renter’s insurance could even cover the loss of a
service member’s luggage. So, if a duffle disappears
from the airport baggage claim or a service
members’ camera is stolen, there’s a good chance
their renter’s insurance could cover that loss.
If for nothing else, service members should
get the insurance for their own peace of mind,
Randle said.

Storm wreaks havoc
on Fort Carson
This was one of many signs knocked down Nov. 3 during a windstorm where winds gusted as high as 60 miles per hour.
Story and photos by Spc. Aimee Millham
Mountaineer staff
Winds gusting to more than 60 miles per hour
swept across Fort Carson Nov. 3 during a Colorado
windstorm that caused winds of up to 84 miles per
hour in other parts of El Paso County.
Mountain Post Team members saw car windows
blown in by flying debris, trees uprooted, including
one that fell and took a street light down with it,
and motorcycles knocked over, causing severe auto
body damage.
The siding and shingles of several buildings such
as the outdoor swimming pool and several on-post
houses were torn up by the wind, as were play sets in
the backyards of some of those houses.
One unit conducting an eight-mile road march
that morning reported having to duck to avoid a
trampoline that was flying at them.
Several buildings on post also lost electricity,
causing on-post schools to close down early.
The storm also caused issues in traffic, twisting
and shorting out traffic lights.
A more amusing display was the portable toilet
that made its way from behind Manhart Field to the
front of post headquarters, landing right at the foot
of Iron Mike, the statue located on the front lot of
the headquarters building.
Almost every other portable toilet on post was
turned over as well.
According to Kathy Torgerson, a meteorologist
with the National Weather Service, the wind was not
unusual considering the strong upper jet stream over
the area at the time.
During major cold outbreaks over the United
States, the jet stream, a river of wind 25,000 feet in
the atmosphere, often dives south, according to the
American Meteorological Society.
This lowering of the jet-stream can cause winds
to speed up, said Air Force Staff Sgt. Bradley
Cogdill, a weather forecaster with the 13th Air
Support Operations Squadron at Butts Army
Airfield. High-speed winds close to the surface
cause what Fort Carson experienced Thursday, said
Cogdill. He added that Thursday’s storm was very
rare for this area.
The 13th ASOS put out a severe storm warning
Thursday, which cancelled any scheduled flights in
the Fort Carson flight zone, said Cogdill.
Above: A motorcycle in the parking lot of Provider Complex, a barracks
building on post, was one of several knocked over throughout Carson
during the windstorm. Right: The siding of several on-post homes was
torn apart by strong gusts of wind.

Buyer beware:
Hurricane damaged cars flood the market
by Karen Linne
Mountaineer editor
If you’re in the market for a used car, beware
flood-damaged vehicles that have been declared a
total loss by insurance companies.
It’ll take more than just kicking the tires and
listening to the engine rumble for buyers to decide
whether their purchase is a savvy one.
Experts estimate that as many as half a million
cars submerged in the waters around the New Orleans
area alone will be “totaled by insurance companies
and then sold at auctions.” These auctions will then
bring those cars into Colorado and around the nation.
Some salvage operators and dealers will clean up
the cars and resell them trying to hide the fact that
the cars have been damaged. Many of these cars are
shipped far from the flooded area, so don’t assume a
car you’re looking at can’t be a flooded car just
because Louisiana, Mississippi and other Gulf Coast
states are far away.
Be particularly cautious if the sales price seems
too low.
According to About Financial Planning Web site,
potential problems with flooded cars include:
• Electrical system failure
• Transmission failure
• Anti-lock brake system failure
• Air bag failure
• Mold and musty smell
• Rust
To avoid becoming a victim, follow this advice:
— Have the car thoroughly inspected by a
certified mechanic
— Run a search on Carfax.com to obtain a history
of the car you’re considering purchasing. Any time
Fort Carson Soldiers and family members
purchase a used vehicle; they can obtain a
Carfax report free through Army Community
Service’s Financial Readiness Program.
This report provides information on the
number of times a vehicle has been registered,
where it’s been registered (by state) and the
type of registration — personal, commercial
or fleet. Call 526-4590 for more information
on obtaining your free Carfax.com report.
You need the vehicle’s 17-digit Vehicle
Identification Number, which is located on
the dashboard, to get the Carfax report.
— Inspect the trunk, glove compartment,
dashboard and below the seats for sand, mud,
rust or other signs of water damage. Look for
water marks around the engine, on the floor
and behind the dash.
— Check the upholstery and carpeting
closely, looking for discoloration, fading or
staining that could indicate water damage. Be
suspicious of carpeting or upholstery that
doesn’t match the interior or doesn’t fit properly,
indicating it may have been replaced.
— Thoroughly test all lights, gauges,

Hand-to-hand combat for the whole family
Story and photo by Spc. Brian Trapp
14th Public Affairs Detachment
While everyone in the Army underwent some
simple hand-to-hand combat training during initial
entry training, a lot of troops haven’t practiced
those skills since leaving basic.
Now, Soldiers and families at the Mountain Post
can learn or re-establish their grappling skills with
classes offered by the Fort Carson Modern Army
Combatives Program.
The classes, open to Soldiers and family
members — including children — teach the Army’s
new standards for hand-to-hand combat, which the
Army refers to as “combatives.”
“If we had more kids come in that would be
awesome,” said Capt. Felipe Moon, outgoing
commander for 7th Infantry Division Individual
Readiness Training.
The classes go beyond regular battlefield combat
training by implementing self-defense techniques.
The classes are also a good way to get some exercise.
Children who come in are exposed to selfdefense and a new culture, Moon said. It’s better to
get a child into grappling early and get them excited
about Brazilian Ju-jitsu instead of video games.
For Soldiers, “The goal is to instill and build
courage and confidence through training,” Moon
said. “Our Army is taught to win by overwhelming
power, but the Soldiers are going to be the ones
putting their hands on the bad guy.”
The classes are centered on a 10-hour course that
teaches students how to encounter and control
assailants by putting them into positions that
restrict their movement and cause pain.
“People can expect sore arms, chests and
shoulders when they walk away from the first two
classes,” Moon said.
Course instructors are certified by the U.S
Army Combatives School at Fort Benning, Ga., to
teach both level I and level II of the Modern Army
Combatives Program, and safety is stressed in the
classes. That doesn’t mean there won’t occasionally
be injuries, though.
Accepting the risk of injury is a participant’s
personal choice, said Spc. Brad Whittington, who is
one of the instructors. There is a chance for injury,
he said, especially if both opponents are giving their
all in a match.
“We don’t take unnecessary risks, and we’ve
never had anyone injured in our classes,”
Whittington said.
Family members and Soldiers have taken
advantage of the training by coming in during their
off time to take on the challenges of grappling.
Sgt. Damon Daniels, a paralegal with the Office
of the Staff Judge Advocate, started as a student in
May. Daniels had a background in wrestling, but he
was looking for something more.
“I like combatives because it’s more realistic
than other stuff I was doing,” Daniels said. “You can
really use it.
“When I first started coming here, I would just
try to out-muscle people,” Daniels said. “Now I
don’t do that, it’s more about technique; more of a
Spc. Brad Whittington, (bottom), combatives
instructor, and Sgt. Damon Daniels, Office of
the Staff Judge Advocate, practice grappling
during the Fort Carson Modern Army
Combatives Program class Nov. 1.
thinking-man’s game.”
For Soldiers, the need for combatives training is
more immediate. There is a post requirement for all
units to conduct one hour of combatives training a
week and to go through a 10-hour block of instruction before deploying to combat. Post policy on
hand-to-hand training ties into an Armywide, twoyear plan to get all Soldiers certified with level I
Modern Army Combatives Program training.
Morning classes are currently offered from 6-8
a.m. at Waller Physical Fitness Center, and evening
classes are offered from 6-8 p.m. (beginning Dec. 5)
Monday through Friday. For more information
contact Capt. Shawn Wray at 330-8305.

Harvest fest fun
About 80 families and 40 single Soldiers of the 759th Military
Police Battalion team up for some harvest fest fun Oct. 29 at the
fire training center. Games such as searching for candy hidden in
the hay, bean bag tosses and pumpkin bowling as well as activities like face painting and crafts were available for the young and
not-so-young alike to enjoy.

In a confident display of team spirit Friday, Fort
Carson welcomed and rallied the U.S. Military Academy
football team with cheers, beers and a bonfire.
The confidence was fitting as the Army football
team brought in a 27-24 victory Saturday against the
Air Force football team.
Friday’s welcoming of the Arny team began with
an afternoon football team practice at Pershing Field
and continued with a 6-8 p.m. pep rally that ended
with the burning of a papier mache falcon, the Air
Force team mascot, created by Capt. Angela Kreh.
The pep rally, organized by Kreh, Fort Carson’s
Directorate of Morale, Welfare and Recreation
representative, was held at Xtremes’ parking lot and
drew about 500 attendees.
The goal of the evening, to stay pepped, was made
clear by the master of ceremonies, a 2nd Infantry
Division sergeant, who got loud cheers from the
audience when he said his pitbull, that stood on stage
with him, was hungry for some falcon meat.
Service members and their families filled the
parking lot, eating $1 burgers donated by a local
McDonald’s, and tossing small foam footballs handed
out at the event.
The event began with a performance by rap group
So Heated, an ensemble made up of Soldiers from the
2nd Infantry Division.
The lyrics to their opening song spoke of relatable
issues like Soldiers going to war, and the strife faced
Air Force
by the families left behind.
So Heated continued performing between the
evening’s competitions and drawing. There were
pull-up, sand-bag and push-up competitions, an Army
trivia competition and a loudest unit contest.
Winners were rewarded a variety of donated gifts
such as free Cheyenne Shadows Golf Club passes and
passes to Mr. Biggs Family Fun Center — an indoor
amusement park.
Also, the loudest unit, which ended up being
43rd Area Support Group, won a grill donated by the
Army/Air Force Mutual Aid Fund. And, there was a
drawing for a $500 gift certificate to Best Buy donated
by Pulte Homes.
After the competitions and about an hour into the
rally, the West Point cheerleaders, mascot and band
arrived to perform and continue cheering the crowd on.
Soon after, 1976 West Point graduate Maj. Gen.
Robert Mixon Jr., the 7th Infantry Division and Fort
Carson commanding general, and 2nd BCT Commander
Col. Gary Patton, stepped on stage to perform a cheer
they used to chant in their West Point days called “the
rocket.” This was a performance the audience got a
huge kick out of.
Finally, when all but one of the evening’s events
was finished, the bonfire that would burn a papier
mache falcon wearing an Air Force football jersey.
Supervised and started by the Fort Carson Fire
Department, the audience watched and cheered as
the flames reached and engulfed the falcon to the tune
of the vitalizing music of the West Point band.

Metro changes name, improves service Need cash for the holidays?
by City of Colorado Springs
Beginning Nov. 3, Springs Transit became
Mountain Metropolitan Transit, reflecting an
expanded, regional service and the first phase of
major improvements to the transit system.
The No. 1 rider request for many years has been
adding Sunday service. Beginning Nov. 6, Sunday
service became available on select routes.
Nine transfer stations will be located throughout
the region, eliminating the need for many riders to
go downtown.
Additions to the bus fleet are also part of the plan
along with expanded weekday and Saturday service
hours; a refurbished downtown terminal, Fort
Carson’s route 30 now includes service on Saturday,
and three new commuter express routes round out
the first in a series of transit improvements.
Details about the new transit features and
services:
• Sunday service: Sunday service hours will be
from 7:30 a.m.-5:35 p.m. on select routes
• Extended Saturday service: Saturday service
hours will be from 5:30 a.m.-10:45 p.m.
• New buses: Seven new state-of-the-art buses
will be added to the bus fleet.
• Transfer stations: Nine transfer stations will be
located throughout the region:
— Astrozon (Astrozon and Academy)
— Austin Bluffs/Academy (Morning Sun and
Academy)
— Chapel Hills Mall (near Sears)
— Citadel Mall (Santa Rosa and Citadel Dr. W.)
— Downtown (Kiowa and Nevada)
— First and Main Town Center (Tutt Boulevard)
— Fountain (Wal-Mart)
— Pikes Peak Community College (S. Academy
Boulevard.)
— University of Colorado at Colorado Springs
(Austin Bluffs and Meadow Lane)
• Express routes: Three express routes will
reduce travel times to and from key destination
points, including Falcon to downtown, Falcon to
Garden of the Gods and Union Town Center to
downtown.
Express routes have fewer stops, which allow
them to arrive at their final destination faster than
traditional transit routes.
• Refurbished downtown terminal: The downtown terminal is currently undergoing renovations
including new carpet and paint, improved lighting, a
new information booth and restrooms.
• Printed schedules are available at the downtown terminal.
Service improvements have been made possible
through the City of Colorado Springs, the Federal
Transit Administration and the Pikes Peak Rural
Transportation Authority, which was formed when
voters in Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, Green
Mountain Falls and El Paso County approved a 1
percent sales tax in November 2004 to address
infrastructure and transportation needs in the region;
10 percent of these funds goes to transit.
For more information about the improved transit
services call 385-5902.

Join the challenge of the Great American
Smokeout.
Every year, tobacco users across the nation
take part in the American Cancer Society’s Great
American Smokeout by using less tobacco products
or quitting for the day of Nov. 17.
We challenge you to stop using tobacco for
24 hours. Not a tobacco user? Give up something
else, like chocolate or soda, in support of those
trying to quit.
According to the National Center for TobaccoFree Kids, per-pack prices vary from about $3.20
in Colorado to around $6 in New York. The national
average is about $4 per pack.
So, a pack-a-day or a can-a-day tobacco user
burns through about $30 per week, or $1,600 per
year. That’s a sizable house payment or a nice vacation with the family. A 40-year-old who stops using
and puts the savings into a 401(k) earning 9 percent
a year would have an extra $250,000 by age 70.
Make plans now to quit for just 24 hours. You
won’t be alone. Even if you don’t go on to quit permanently, you can be proud that you quit for a day.
Research shows that tobacco users are most
successful in kicking the habit when they have some
means of support, such as nicotine replacement
products; counseling; prescription medicine to lessen
cravings; guide books; and the encouragement of
friends and family members.
Let Evans Army Community Hospital help. Call
the Tobacco Cessation Quit Line at 526-QUIT.

T
he 3rd Cavalry Regiment has a
proud history portrayed in the 3rd
Cavalry Museum at Fort Carson.
The museum is in the “Banana
Belt” area — the yellow brick
buildings on the way to Gate 20.
The unit’s history is traced to a
regiment of mounted riflemen authorized by Congress in 1846, a new and
different unit for the U.S. Army — a
regiment of riflemen on horseback.
The mounted Soldiers would have
longer range, using rifles, than did
infantry Soldiers using muskets.
About a year after its beginning,
the mounted riflemen proved their
worth while participating in the
Artifacts in the museum include this
sketchbook made of brown paper
shopping bags.
An exhibit portrays the early days of the
3rd Cavalry riflemen.
1847 Mexican War. The mounted
riflemen participated in six campaigns, serving with distinction.
In fact, the unit’s commanding
general, Gen. Winfield Scott paid
high tribute to the mounted riflemen, calling them “Brave Rifles.”
Scott said, “Veterans, you have
been bathed in fire and blood and
come out steel — you are ‘Brave
Rifles,’” At the time Scott commanded
the U.S. forces in southern Mexico.
The 3rd Armored Cavalry
Regiment, now serving its second tour
of duty in Operation Iraqi Freedom, is
evolved from the original mounted
riflemen regiment. The regiment is
still known as the Brave Rifles.
The history of the Brave Rifles is
shown in the museum. The regiment has had 71 colonels leading
the group since its inception.
The historic timeline of the unit
is shown in the main exhibit in
the museum.
Visitors are greeted by a
“member of the regiment,
Timothy Cummings,” portrayed
at Jefferson Barracks, Mo.,
the regiment’s first station.
The regiment’s history is
tracked through the exhibit
with photos of the regiment’s
colonels and a timeline of
real-world events, allowing
visitors to relate regiment events
to historic events.
Visitors may recognize several
names of well-known warriors in
the exhibits.

From Page 31
For instance, William F. Cody, also known as
“Buffalo Bill,” was a civilian scout with the 3rd
Cavalry. Cody was awarded the nation’s top
honor — the Medal of Honor — for his gallantry
in action at Platte River, Neb., in 1872. The
medal was rescinded in 1916, but the medal was
reinstated in 1989.
Cody is one of 23 names on the Medal of
Honor Board in the museum which lists members of the 3rd Cavalry who were awarded the
nation’s highest award.
Gen. George S. Patton was the regiment’s
colonel from 1938 to 1940. Patton was an
excellent horseman and his name is engraved
on the Goodrich horsemanship trophy
displayed in the museum.
The museum had its beginnings as a regimental trophy room at Fort Meade, Md. The
trophy room later became a museum. The museum has been relocated with the regiment each
time it has been moved: to Baumholder, West
Germany, Fort Lewis, Wash., and Fort Bliss,
Texas. In 1996 the regiment was relocated to Fort
Carson, and the museum is now on this post.
Eventually, the museum will be relocated to
Fort Hood, Texas, when the 3rd Armored Cavalry
Regiment is moved there.
The 3rd Cavalry Museum is one of only a
few museums that traces Army history back further than the 20th century.
The museum displays historic uniforms,
firearms and reproduction saddles and other
artifacts.
Special displays depict the regiment’s participation in the Civil War, the Spanish American
War, the Civil War, early Indian wars and the
War with Mexico.
Newer exhibits depict the regiment’s sixmonth tour in Bosnia and Iraqi Freedom. A large
map of Iraq is in the museum and shows the area
of operations of the 3rd ACR.
Groups can arrange a guided tour of the
museum. Self-guided tours are also welcomed.
A display of military vehicles associated with
the regiment is behind the museum. An H-34
Choctaw Helicopter, used by the 3rd ACR from
1955 to 1968 is there, as well as a rare 1942
Willys MB Jeep. There are light and medium

armored tanks and a rare combined animal and
cargo trailer, called a “Cavalry Porte,” used from
the 1930s through World War II to haul spare
mounts for the horse cavalry. It was later used
to haul mules.
The outdoor display can be reached by going
through the museum.
Although the museum is devoted to the
3rd ACR’s unit’s history, a map of Fort Carson
in the 1940s is popular with visitors who were
assigned to the post during World War II and
want to locate their barracks, unit and other
familiar places.
But more of Fort Carson’s 64-year history will
be depicted in a future facility. The Mountain Post
Historical Center is planned to be located near
the Kit Carson statue and the Global War on
Terrorism Memorial near the post’s main gate.
The 30,000-square-foot facility will provide
housing for post artifacts, several galleries, a
visitors’ orientation center and office space,
collection storage and preservation facilities,
according to an editorial by Publisher Lon
Matejczyk printed in the Sept. 16 issue of the
Colorado Springs Business Journal.
The historic center will be funded by the
Colorado Springs community, Matejczyk said.
A sign near Gate 1 identifies the historic
center’s site. Groundbreaking is expected to
occur in 2006, with construction expected
to last two years.
The 3rd Cavalry Museum is open Monday
through Friday, from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
There is no admission charge for the museum,

Army’s sideline erupts as the team secures its first victory over the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs in 28 years Saturday.
Finally
Army wins at Air Force for first time in 28 years

Mountaineer staff
The last time the Army football
team won in Colorado Springs, which
it did 27-24 Saturday, Jimmy Carter
was President of the United States, The
Toronto Blue Jays played its first-ever
baseball game against the Chicago
White Sox, Elvis Presley died in
Tennessee and not a single player on
this year’s football team was alive.
To say it has been a while and an
obsession for Army’s football team to
win at the Air Force Academy would
be putting it mildly. Year after year
teams come to the Academy and the
players say they just want to be on the
team that beat Air Force here. After a
thrilling contest Saturday, members of
the 2005 Army football team will never
have to carry that burden around again.
They will be forever in the gratitude of
Army supporters the world over.
Army came into the game with a
solid game plan and the belief they
could win the game, according to
head coach Bobby Ross, who was
basking in the delight of the victory at
a post- game news conference.
“I believe they believed coming
into the game that they could win. We
had to have believed that or we wouldn’t
have won. Before the game I didn’t
know (how it would turn out) because I
think Air Force is still a very good
football team that has gone through
some tough times this year for whatever
reason. They are a very solid football
team and they have some good
football players. We were able to hang
in there and make it work at the end,”
Ross said.
Senior running back Carlton Jones
echoed his coach’s feelings at a separate press conference when he said
the Army team was ready for what the
Air Force threw at them.
“Walking off the bus we knew that
we could win if we went out and executed on offense, defense and special
teams. We knew if we went out and
played like we practiced all week that
we could win this game. Basically, it
was preparation for what Air Force
would do on defense. We weren’t surprised by what they did, we knew what
was coming and we knew that we just
had to execute,” Jones said.
After the first half, it looked like
Air Force was going to keep the Black
Knights’ losing streak in Colorado
Springs intact as the Falcons took a
14-13 lead into halftime. Army wasted
many opportunities to score touchdowns with ill-timed mistakes or penalties and found itself down by a point at

From Page 35
halftime, something that was
addressed by the coaching staff,
according to Jones.
“At halftime we talked about the
chances we had in their territory
and had to settle for field goals. We
knew in the second half that we had
to punch those chances in for touchdowns because seven points is a lot
better than three,” Jones said.
In the second half, the Black
Knights took the words of the coaching
staff to heart and took advantage of
its trips to the Falcons’ red zone
(inside the 20 yard line) to score two
touchdowns.
More importantly, the Black
Knights controlled the ball with a
patient, effective running game
and short passing game that ate up
valuable clock time, something the
team wanted to do coming into the
game, according to Ross.
“We were striving for it (long sustained drives during the game) because
I don’t think you beat them unless you
do. In six of our seven games coming
into today we had the advantage in ball
possession, so it’s not something new
to us. It (ball possession) was something we thought about, talked about
and worked on,” Ross said.
Both the scoring drives and the
offensive success were needed by the
team because Air Force had the ball

and was driving for a possible tying
field goal or winning touchdown with
just over a minute to go. Air Force
had the ball in Army territory at the
44-yard line with just under a minute
to go when the play that Army players
may label “the fumble” for years to
come occurred.
An Air Force runner was fighting
for a first down when the ball was
stripped out near the Army bench.
After the game Ross described
what he saw.
“I saw the ball pop out and I
thought the player that fumbled the
ball got back on it. Then I saw us fall
in a different spot and I knew we had
it. The turnovers were the key thing in
the game. It was a huge play, it was a
big play,” Ross said.
After the game, senior running
back Scott Wesley could barely contain
his jubilation. He said it will probably
be a long time before he cares about
the statistics of the game because there
was a bigger meaning to the victory.
“I probably won’t remember any
of the statistics of the game but it’s the
fact that we beat a team that has been
beating us for such a long time.
“We have a lot of old grads and
old teammates that have been calling
us (urging the team to win) and we
will vicariously celebrate through all
of them,” Wesley said.

All right, let me get this out
of the way, so I can fulfill a
promise made to members of the
Mountain Post.
See what had happened ... oh
there is no sense trying to dance
around it, the annual tail kicking
Air Force usually gives to Army
was turned around Saturday and
Army won for the first time here in
28 years. I, like many in the Air
Force community, am in mourning.
So, to all the people who took
offense to my blatant rooting for the
blue, I have held up my end of the deal
by publicly proclaiming that Army is
No. 1 this year as the picture on this
page proves.
In what can only be considered
a rare event with this much significance, the World Class Athlete
Program boxing team will hold an
event today at 3 p.m. at Garcia Physical
Fitness Center.
The program will host a boxing
smoker featuring members of its
program and members of the U.S.
Olympic Education Center boxing
program. Many members of both the
WCAP and U.S. Olympic team will
be favored to earn spots on the 2008
U.S. Olympic boxing team.
The WCAP team will be coached
by the last head boxing coach for the
U.S. Olympic boxing team, Basheer
Abdullah, and the U.S. team will be
coached by a former U.S. Olympic
boxing coach and Al Mitchell. There
are 11 bouts planned for the event that
are sure to thrill boxing fans, according
Charles Leverette, WCAP assistant
boxing coach.
One member of the WCAP program that will not take part in the
event on post today is welterweight
Boyd Melson. The 2004 World Military
Welterweight Champion has a good
reason for missing this prestigious
event. He is part of an 11 boxer U.S.

The post youth center held its initial
“Teen Night” monthly activities Friday at the
youth center.
The program was in conjunction with the
Midnight Basketball Program and is designed to give
post youth a variety of activities they can partake in
outside of basketball. According to youth center
officials, the turnout was very good. The center staff
members said they had a number of post youth here
and they enjoyed a good night of basketball and
fellowship. They believe the program is going to be
very successful in the coming months judging by the
enthusiasm the youth show to having this program.
