They are preparing for the 38th Annual U.S. Army Culinary Arts Competition at Fort Lee,Va., in March.
The competition dates back to 1973, and is now the largest of its kind in North America, according to Warrant Officer Arnetra Hughes, 75th Fires Brigade food service technician and Fort Sill Culinary Arts Program manager. Team Sill consists of food service specialists from the 75th Fires Brigade, 31st Air Defense Artillery Brigade and 214th Fires Brigade,
Story, photos By Jeff Crawley Fort Sill recognized its noncommissioned officer, Soldier and drill sergeant of the year during a ceremony Jan. 25 at the Patriot Club. Hundreds of fellow Soldiers, civilians, families and friends packed the club to honor Staff Sgt. Matthew Seelig, Sgt. Spencer Black and Drill Sergeant (Staff Sgt.) Victor Marquez. Keynote speaker Command Sgt. Maj. Jerome Wiggins, Air Defense Artillery Regimental CSM, said the three honorees defined excellence. “They believed no matter how common the task, it sould be done uncommonly well,” Wiggins said. “They did not believe in the bare minimum, they chose to follow the path of excellence.” Such a choice is sometimes hard, but always wise, said the CSM. “After all, the path to excellence is never crowded.” Wiggins also said the Soldiers never would have reached the pinnacle without the support of their spouses, families and friends.

Soldiers from Headquarters and Headquarters Battery, 31st Air Defense Artillery Brigade, slip into their Mission Oriented Protective Posture suits during the HHB’s Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear training Jan. 15, here.
ADA Soldiers practice chem warfare skills Story, photo By Staff Sgt. Nathan Akridge 31st ADA Public Affairs “Gas, gas, gas!” These are three words that no Soldier wants to hear on the battlefield, but with more countries possessing chemical weapons, the threat of a chemical agent attack is ever present in combat. Headquarters and Headquarters Battery, 31st Air Defense Artillery Brigade Soldiers recently conducted chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) training. For the battery’s
leadership, the purpose of the training was quite clear. “With the threats we face as air defenders in today’s world, our Soldiers have to be up on their life-saving skills,” said 1st Sgt. Robert Bedford, “and, if you feel like I do, donning a protective mask in less than nine seconds is one of those skills.” The Soldiers had to don not only their protective mask, but also their entire Joint Service Lightweight Integrated Suit Technology, or J-List, in eight minutes, to include the rubber protective boots and gloves. Although the training was
straight forward, many of the Soldiers thought the approach made it very memorable. “Our first sergeant made it a fun challenge by timing us,” said Spc. Tiffany McWilliams. “It made us bond together and compete with each other. It was fun watching each other and our leadership putting their JList gear on.” Some Soldiers learned a great deal about their Mission Oriented Protective Posture (MOPP) Level IV suit. “It was my first time putting on the MOPP suit. This is my second duty station,
and I never put it on in Korea,” said Pfc. Dacoda Worth. “I’m glad that I learned how to put it on correctly because now I am better prepared for a situation where I have to use it. I feel more comfortable with it.” Staff Sgt. Charles Howard, 31st ADA noncommissioned officer in charge of CBRN, stressed to the Soldiers this is not a onetime training event. “Training for CBRN is a continuous process. It’s not something you react to; it’s something you prepare for,” Howard said.

Defense secretary rescinds combat rule for women By David Vergun Army News Service WASHINGTON — Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey signed a memo recently paving the way for more women to serve in direct combat roles and in more occupational specialties that are now open only to males. The memo rescinds the 1994 Defense Department “Direct Ground Combat Definition and Assignment Rule,” which states in part: “Service members are eligible to be assigned to all positions for which they are qualified, except that women shall be excluded from assignment to units below the brigade level whose primary mission is to engage in direct combat on the ground.” The memo does not spell out which military occupational specialties (MOS) will be open to women. Rather, it directs the services to provide their implementation strategies to the DoD by May. Implementation will begin this year and be completed by 2015, Panetta added. The reason some MOSs in
the past were closed was “due to permissible restrictions such as co-location, direct ground combat, privacy and berthing, special operations or long-range reconnaissance,” according to the February 2012 DoD “Report to Congress on the Review of Laws, Policies and Regulations Restricting the Service of Female Members in the U.S. Armed Forces.” “This year we will begin to assign women to previously closed occupations using clear standards of performance in all occupational specialties,”Dempsey said. “The burden of proof used to be ‘why should a woman serve in a particular specialty?’”he added.“Now, it’s ‘why shouldn’t a woman serve in a particular specialty?’” As of September, 418 of the Army’s 438 MOSs were open to women of all ranks, according to an Oct. 31 Army report “Women in the Army.” “Soldiers both men and women want fair and meaningful standards” to be developed for accepting women into previously restricted MOSs, said Gen. Robert Cone, commander, Army Training and Doctrine Command, at a Pentagon
media roundtable following a DoD press conference. “I think that fairness is very important in a values-based organization like our Army,” Cone said. TRADOC has already been studying armies in other countries where women have successfully been integrated into combat MOSs countries like Canada and Israel. The Army will be “looking at knowledge, skills and attributes of Soldiers and get the best match in specialties (now restricted) like infantry, armor, field artillery and engineers,”Cone said, adding that one of the important attributes is physical requirements.“Soldiers don’t want to see (that) degraded.” Objective assessments and validation studies, many of which have already been completed, will look at each requirement by MOS, he said.Tasks include things like “how much does an infantryman have to lift, how much stuff do they have to carry and for what distance.” Once the validations are done, scientists will then develop MOS-specific physical fitness tests, Cone continued. Then those tests will in

turn be validated with field studies. Besides physical ability, the Army will look at “traditional impediments,” meaning the attitudes regarding the acceptance of women into previously male-only MOSs, he said.“A lot of this is about leadership and the organizational climate.” The Army will take “proactive measures to mitigate resistance to women going into these specialties,” Cone concluded.“We want the right environment for women.” The commander in chief approved the actions of Panetta and Dempsey, as well as the work the Army is taking to open up MOSs for women. President Obama released a statement that reads in part: “By moving to open more military positions — including ground combat units — to women, our armed forces have taken another historic step toward harnessing the talents and skills of all our citizens. “This milestone reflects the courageous and patriotic service of women through more than two centuries of American history and the indispensable role of women in today’s military. “Many have made the ultimate sacrifice, including more than 150 women who have given their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan — patriots whose sacrifices show that valor knows no gender.” Like the Cannoneer?

FA museum adds foreign artillery pieces Story, photo By Ben Sherman Recently the Cannoneer began a series on World War II self-propelled artillery pieces acquired by the Army Field Artillery Museum at Fort Sill. The first story focused on the German Sturmpanzer IV “Brummbär”(Grouch) 155 mm self-propelled howitzer, and the Italian Semovente M90/35 90mm self-propelled gun. In this issue we take a look at two more pieces — the German 138/1 “Grille” selfpropelled heavy infantry gun, and the German L/28 Heuschrecke 10 self-propelled 105 mm field howitzer on a tracked weapons carrier, called the “Grasshopper.” The first one we will look at is the 155 mm “Grille”selfpropelled infantry gun called the “Cricket.” “The Germans were very fond of taking enemy equipment and reusing it, and this is a perfect example of that practice,” said Gordon Blaker, Army Field Artillery museum director and curator. “They took an obsolete Czechoslovakian tank chassis and put a German SiG 33/2 155 mm gun on top of it to create a heavy self-propelled infantry gun.” Blaker said Germany used these guns on all fronts during World War II to provide heavy fire support for the infantry gun companies of the Panzergrenadier units. “[These] units were basically mechanized infantry, and the guns could provide direct or indirect fire as needed,” Blaker added. “This

particular Grille was captured in Italy and is one of only two known surviving examples.The other one was recently pulled out of an Austrian lake and is likely being restored by an Austrian museum right now.” The Germans produced 282 Grilles from April 1943 to September 1944. The Fort Sill Directorate of Logistics (DoL) paint shop was tasked with restoring these units, and the other pieces previously featured in the Cannoneer. “It takes about 200 manhours to complete each vehicle, depending on how bad they were when we got them,” said Corey Lejeune, paint shop employee. “Sometimes they have vines and limbs in them. We strip them down to bare metal, replace any rusted metal pieces and then prime them. We get it as clean as possible before painting it.” Lejeune said the “Cricket” took about 80 man-hours just for the painting stage. The museum acquired the munitions carrier that goes with the “Cricket” from the armor museum at Fort Knox, Ky., in 2010. “It’s known as the “Munitionsschlepper,” and I believe it is the only remaining one in the world. So now we have a matched set of gun and munitions carrier. The “Cricket” could carry 18 rounds on its own and had to have the “Munitionsschlepper” nearby to resupply it,”Blaker added. The fourth self-propelled artillery piece is one that Blaker called “bizarre.” “I’m nervous and excited,” said Pfc. Myra Montoya, 75th FiB. “I’ve wanted to do something like this for a long time.” The West Palm Beach, Fla., native said she wants to expand her level of knowledge as a food service specialist and looks at the training for the competition as one way of accomplishing her goal. Many of the Soldiers also view the competition as a way to break away from
The only remaining German Heuschrecke 10 “Grasshopper” 105 mm self-propelled light field howitzer features a detachable turret that allowed soldiers to position it on the ground like an armored pillbox. “It is a German World War II prototype vehicle called an L/28 Heuschrecke 10 or “Grasshopper.” It is a light field howitzer on a tracked weapons carrier. What made the “Grasshopper” strange was that the crew could remove the turret in the field, lift it off of the chassis and set it on the ground like an armored pillbox to fire shells with its 105 mm gun,” Blaker said. “They were also able to set the turret on a two-wheeled cart and tow it behind the their day-to-day duties and ‘rub elbows’with food service specialist who perform various roles throughout the military. “A lot of times Soldiers think this [cooking in a DFAC] is the only thing there is to do,” said Sgt. Jesse Mitchell, 214 FiB, “You get to meet new people [at the competition] and network. You get to work with people who cook for generals.”

Eight were produced, and the one we have is the sole surviving example,”he added. “The Germans tried all sorts of new and different vehicles. That’s one of the things that led to their downfall.They were too dispersed and didn’t focus on their better designs and just produce those,”he said.

restored by the DoL paint shop. Each artillery piece presented its own set of challenges to the DoL paint shop crew. They frequently had one or two reference photos, often black and white, of what the vehicles originally looked like. Blaker provided the color pallets and camouflage patterns so the paint shop could get the look as close as possible when it came time to paint, which helped the painters. “I mainly paint and some body work,” said Robert Baker, a nine-year veteran of the paint shop. “Every piece
had a schedule and we usually met the deadlines and finished on time. But there were always deadlines.” “We’re really delighted to have these rare and unusual pieces. When I came to the museum, we had no examples of German selfpropelled field artillery pieces from World War II,” he said. “Now, we have a nice collection of them. These pieces, along with the “Hummel,” “Brummbär” and Italian Semovente will eventually be displayed in Constitution Park, as soon as I figure out where to put them,”Blaker chuckled.

ADA temp museum moves to new facility Story, photos By James Brabenec 696th Forward Support Company Soldiers recently helped Army Air Defense Artillery Museum personnel move 23 artifacts, most to the new temporary facility, an old aircraft hangar at Building 4908 Post Road on Fort Sill. Jon Bernstein, museum director and curator, said work will commence to renovate the temporary buildings at 1505 and 1506 Bateman Road. Meanwhile the museum will continue to meet its primary mission. “We are here to train Soldiers, primarily those going through professional development schools,”he said.“Learning about ADA history gives them a sense of where they came from and who served before them.” Their main visitors will be Advanced Individual Training Soldiers and officers in either the Basic Officer Leadership Course or Captains’ Career Course. Bernstein said those visits will happen on a fairly regular basis, but the general public is welcome, too. Though exhibitwork continues, the new temporary facility is open and its hours are Mondays through Fridays from 1-5 p.m. Throughout its display area, ADA equipment will show technology’s advance from World War II, Korea and Vietnam. “A lot of the equipment Soldiers use today are much more user friendly than what Soldiers operated during World War II,” he said. But equipment forms just a backdrop to the museum’s true intent that Bernstein received from Col. Donald Fryc, Army ADA School commandant and chief of ADA. “Colonel Fryc wanted the museum to focus on the people not just the weapons systems, which falls right in line my vision,”said Bernstein.“You don’t have history of stuff, you have history of people and that’s something we’re really going to emphasize.” Mannequins garbed in uniforms specific to the particular war will portray significant Soldiers and their stories. Reaching across time those predecessors may speak to the young enlisted Soldiers and officers who tour the facility. “If visitors can make the connection to somebody in
the Army’s history, we’ve done our job,”he said.
Moving team Much of the moving work required the 696th FSC Soldiers to operate an M88 A1 Recovery Vehicle, itself a product of the Vietnam era. Working smartly and efficiently, they prepared a 29.5-ton M1 120 mm antiaircraft gun for its move from the temporary museum to a nearby garage on Bateman Road. The massive “Stratosphere Gun,”so nicknamed because it fired shells 10 miles into the sky, seemingly shrank next to the leviathan M88 tracked vehicle Spc. MacKenzie Pirnat operated. His “ride” tipped the scales at more than 55 tons, but with the assistance of his two ground guides, Sgts. William Hearn and William Hagg, he drove it with “100percent confidence.” “Usually I go out to the field and get a vehicle, hook it up to a tow bar and bring it back,” he said.“This Spc.

Soldiers soars skies with UAVs Story, photo By Pfc. Andrew Ingram, Fort Carson FORT CARSON, Colo. — Unmanned aerial vehicles soared through the sky under the control of 16 “Raider” Brigade Soldiers during QR-11 Raven training here, Jan. 7-18. During the two-week training certification course, Soldiers from 1st Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, in a variety of career fields, learned how to launch, maneuver and land the small, unmanned aircraft in a variety of situations, including aerial security during movement operations, terrain reconnaissance and target acquisition during night operations. “The benefit of this training can’t be overstated,” said 2nd Lt. Theresa Ross, intelligence officer, Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 4th Brigade Support Battalion, 1st Brigade Combat Team. “The Raven is small, lightweight and portable. We use it for everything from site reconnaissance to target acquisition, so having several Soldiers trained and qualified to operate it is a huge combat multiplier.” The hands-on approach to the training helped the Raiders get a feel for the tactical importance of the unmanned aerial vehicle, as well as a solid understanding of its capabilities and limitations, said Ross. “Not a whole lot of intelligence officers get the chance to learn about this hardware first hand,” she said. “Because I have firsthand knowledge of the Raven, I will have reasonable expectations of what we can accomplish with it during a combat deployment.” The Raven is designed for quick assembly and deployment at the lowest levels of the military structure. Weighing only four pounds and operated by remote control, the Raven can gather video or photographic intelligence, or direct forces to a target using an infrared laser. Having Soldiers from both combat arms and support career fields participat-

Glen Default, infantryman, Company B, 1st Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team. “When I fly, I have to be aware of everything going on in my airspace and know what is going on ground side to accomplish my mission. It’s a much bigger picture than I have been exposed to.”

Employee spotlight shines on drug testing coordinator Story, photo By Marie Berberea
Getting to know Bruce
Editor’s note: The Employee Spotlight is a new monthly column meant to highlight a Fort Sill worker for their daily efforts. Bruce Eckenroth is prepared to tell Soldiers the dangers of using and abusing drugs and alcohol. As Fort Sill’s Army Substance Abuse Program assistant drug testing coordinator, he’s been doing so for more than a decade. He started as a drug tester for his unit in 1998 when he was an active-duty Soldier. He was stationed here and assigned to B Battery, 1st Battalion, 12th Field Artillery where he deployed to Iraq in 2003. He eventually retired at Fort Sill. His transition to the Well Being Center was a smooth one as he now trains Unit Prevention Leaders on how to test Soldiers, and, hopefully, deter them from using substances. He said the best part of his job is interacting with service members. “I’m an old Soldier, I’m a retiree and a lot of them I still know in some way shape or form. I still actively

It was a great big bus ride to get over there to see him and he busted out his saxophone,” said Eckenroth.

Eckenroth was double checking to make sure a urine sample was done correctly before sending it off to be tested. Eckenroth has helped make Fort Sill’s drug testing programs one of the most accurate in the Army. “You can’t fix everybody, participate in events with them,”said Eckenroth. you can only fix the ones who are willing to be fixed.” Testing Eckenroth said he takes “I see the prevention, the his days as a non-commisdeterrence portion is helpsioned officer leading safety ing some of the Soldiers,” briefings into his work now said Eckenroth.

lem then you need to be prepared,”said Eckenroth. He talked about the reallife consequences of bad choices and he cited Dallas Cowboy’s player Josh Brent. Brent was recently charged with intoxication manslaughter after a car accident that killed his Cowboys teammate, Jerry Brown. “We have to be prepared to talk about those things. If you’re not willing to talk to the Soldiers about it and help deter them you’re not
helping them. They have to understand those problems,” said Eckenroth. Because of his efforts, Eckenroth was lauded as a key factor in making Fort Sill one of the best biochemical departments in the Army. “I joined the Army to care about somebody and they taught me to care about Soldiers. I’ve been caring about Soldiers for my whole Army and now my civilian career,”said Eckenroth.

Sill Soldiers attend inauguration ball By Jeff Crawley Two of Fort Sill’s finest represented the installation at the Commander-in-Chief’s Inaugural Ball Jan. 21 in Washington, D.C. Sgt. Benny Stetson, third quarter Noncommissioned Officer of the year, and Sgt. Spencer Black, Soldier of the Year, along with other guests of the armed forces took in the festivities at the ball, which recognized military members and their families. “It was an honor, a privilege to represent the NCO corps and Fort Sill at such a distinguished event,” said Stetson, 66th Forward Support Company, 3rd Battalion, 13th Field Artillery. “It was actually our first ball, so it was quite an experience.” Stetson said he received word from Command Sgt. Maj. Dwight Morrisey, Fires Center of Excellence and Fort Sill CSM, that he was selected to attend the ball about five days before the inauguration. His wife, Melissa, accompanied him on the trip. They stayed at hotel not far from the Washington Convention Center — the site of the ball. It was two weeks before the inauguration, when Black’s commanders told him to pack his bags because he would be going to the ball. “It was a great honor to be selected from the 20,000 Soldiers on post to represent the entire post,” said Black, 3-13th FA. “I thought that was a neat experience.” Performers at the ball included Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson and Chris Cornell. Black and Stetson described the atmosphere of the ball as exciting. “All the branches were there and

“He’s a really great guy, really down to earth,” said Black. “That was quite an honor and I got my picture with him, too.” There was time for sightseeing
Inauguration festivities rich with tradition The tradition of presidential inaugural balls in the United States has evolved over time. The first occurred May 7, 1789 in New York City, one week after the inauguration of George Washington. In 1809, organizers sold more than 400 tickets for James
Madison’s first inauguration. Tickets went for $4 a piece. In 1865, a ball was held for Abraham Lincoln’s second inauguration in the Model Room at the United States Patent Office, the first in a government building. Other presidents canceled balls including Franklin Pierce who
was mourning the recent death of his son in 1853. Private parties known as “charity balls,” were held during the Depression and World War II era inaugurations. Official inaugural balls were not reinstated until the second inauguration of Harry Truman in
and the Soldiers took in the monuments surrounding the National Mall. “I really liked the Washington See BALL, Page 2B
1949. John Kennedy’s inauguration featured five balls in 1961. Reflecting the mood of previous presidents in the early 20th century, Jimmy Carter charged no more than $25 per ticket. By 1997, the number of inaugural balls reached a peak of 14 during the second inauguration of Bill Clinton. Source: Wikipedia.

HHB, 14th FA wins overtime thriller, 55-53 Story, photo By James Brabenec HHB, 1st Battalion 14th Field Artillery rode a quartet of scorers Jan. 24 to outlast HHB, 31st Air Defense Artillery, 55-53 in an intramural basketball overtime thriller. Tyler Stacy, 12 points, and Tyler Gatlin, 11 points, each hit three 3-pointers including one each during the decisive extra period. “Terry Sanders shot well for us, too, and the big guys down low kept us in the game,”said Thomas Crocket, 1-14th FA coach.“I also credit the team for the job they did breaking the 31st ADA press.” Dustin Umberger scored at will from outside and with drives to the basket to lead the ADA team with 18 points. Anthony Thompson contributed 17, and Stanley Atkins chipped in eight points. The 31st ADA opened the scoring on a rebound put back from Atkins and a deep 3-pointer by Umberger. Though the 31st ADA had the taller rebounders, the 14th FA big men battled down low keeping an opportunity alive that set up Stacy for his first trey from the left corner. On an ensuing trip down the floor, Thompson bulled his way inside but a referee
whistled him for charging. That foul foreshadowed ADA troubles, specifically against the team’s center, James Davis. Despite this, the 31st ADA kept the lead early on at 1310, and momentum seemed securely in their hands even though they fouled Stacy on a 3-point attempt. Thanks to an illegal substitution, the referees whistled a two-shot technical against the 14th FA. “We called a technical foul because a 31st ADA player who entered the game was wearing a different number than what the scorebook said,” said referee Ken Fairley. “That resulted in an administrative two-shot technical foul.” Thompson hit both technicals then watched as Stacy only hit one of his three free throws. But Ben Logsdon bailed out his teammate as he made two smart plays. First, he drove on Davis and drew a foul. The next time down court, Logsdon ball faked Davis into the air drawing a second foul. Though he only hit two of the four free throws and the 13th ADA maintained a fivepoint lead, the fouls later proved key to the game’s outcome. Adding to Davis’ dilemma, Sanders drove inside

Stacy nailed the trey leading his team to a 55-53 overtime victory Jan. 24 at Rinehart Fitness Center at Fort Sill. against Davis who was again whistled for a foul on the 14th FA guard. Davis then took a seat for a few minutes. Seizing the opportunity, the 14th FA went on an 8-0 run for a 21-18 lead. With 30 seconds left until halftime, Davis re-entered the game and held the ball outside the 3-point arc as the 31st ADA looked for the last shot of the half. However, the offense stalled with the lack of ball movement and
26 seconds faded from the clock. Davis then launched an improbable 3-pointer which swished through the net knotting the score, 21-21, at the break. In the second half, sharpshooters kept the score tight. Stacy hit his second trey, and a couple minutes later Gatlin answered an Umberger 3-pointer to tie the score at 31-all. Although the 14th FA kept the pressure on the 31st ADA and built a couple
small leads, the air defenders countered keeping the score tied at 41-41 with 2:25 left in the game. Sanders then drove strong on Davis who blocked a shot attempt. However, the referee whistled him for a blocking foul which ended the Davis’ night with five fouls. However, his 31st ADA teammates overcame the key loss. Aggressive play against the 14th FA resulted in trips to the foul line with less than 15 seconds. But,
they only hit one of four free throws for a 47-45 lead. With six seconds remaining, Logsdon saved the field artillerymen as he worked his way inside and tossed up a spinning shot.The ball rattled the rim then hung for a moment, still spinning, before settling into the net to force overtime. In the extra period, Thompson and Umberger offset the 14th FA shooters as the 31st ADA took a 53-52 lead with 25 seconds left. The 14th FA whittled away most of that time before Gatlin hit a rainbow 3-pointer for a 55-53 lead. The 31st ADA gamely called time out with one second left on the clock. To their credit, Thompson received a fullcourt pass and instantly tossed up a wild shot, but didn’t hit the mark. Frankie Paulino, 31st ADA coach, said his team put up a good fight though he had a short roster. “Some players we don’t count on normally really came through and gave us a chance,”he said. He then credited Umberger’s shooting skills and hustle. “Tonight he showed he could hit from outside, take it to the hole and make his foul shots,” said Paulino. “It was a tough game to lose, but we’ll learn from our mistakes and build from this.”

Deer seasons past can indicate future harvests Now that all the deer seasons are over let’s look at the results. Last week I discussed how our harvest compared to goals we set back in September. This week let’s look at how our recent harvest compared to some past. We have pretty good records dating back to 1954. On any given year many factors can affect the total harvest, and these can cause some variation from year to year. Some of these factors include hunting pressure, weather, season length, weapons used, and even military training. Most of the time the main factor is the number of deer available. Let’s look at the deer harvest with a broad view since looking at all the variables
would take more time than I have here. We’ll look at the results by the decade they happened in. From 1954 through 1959, there were three years out of six that the overall harvest was above 200. In the 1960s that trend continued with six of the 10 years having a harvest over 200. In the 1970s, harvest rates went downhill considerably as only one year managed to get above 200. That trend continued in the 1980s until the latter years for a total of three out of 10 years above 200. Starting in the 1990s, the harvest improved and 23 out of the last 23 years the harvest has remained above 200. Although down a bit this year, we still took 209 deer to keep the trend going even during a couple years of drought.
Wild Side By GLEN WAMPLER
Most deer hunters like to shoot a buck if given the chance, and many of them really like to chase trophies. With this in mind let’s look at the buck harvest in those same groups of years. In ‘54-’59, more than 100 bucks were harvested three of the six years. In the 1960s, seven of the 10 years over 100 bucks were taken. Once again the seventies had a major drop as no year had a buck harvest over 100. The rebound started in the 1980s, and there were five years with over 100 bucks. All through the 1990s and

able to keep quality habitat that should sustain deer numbers unless we go into a 1930s-type drought. What has the rule of allowing only one buck if the first buck taken is a 1½ year old? Ask some of the folks with the smiling faces on our wall of honor at the check station. Can we still improve deer hunting on Fort Sill? Probably and we’ll continue to work on it, but thanks to hunters who are willing to work with us I think some great strides have been made.

on till now we have managed to keep above 100 bucks per year. This year we took 114 bucks. I won’t go through all the doe harvest records as they follow the same basic directions as shown in the other harvest. Although in the early years they seem to have had years of no doe hunting followed by years of high doe harvest as in 0 taken in 1962, and more than 150 in 1963. Since the 1990s, the harvest has been more consistently near 100 or a little lower.This year we took 66.
Fawn harvest wasn’t recorded separately during the early years so it is hard to compare. Harvest of fawns is affected greatly by the survival of fawns which is affected greatly by such things as predation and weather conditions. It can also be affected by the availability of older deer to be taken. During the last four years we have had very low fawn harvests which is probably because of a combination of all the above. This year’s fawn harvest was 29. What does this say for your hunting? Basically, I think it says you are here during a good time for deer hunting. Could the drought affect our deer numbers if it continues? Sure, but with the herd numbers at the level they are now, we should be

TRICARE pharmacy Family sets new co-pays Courtesy of TRICARE Communications FALLS CHURCH, Va. – New co-payments for prescription drugs covered by TRICARE will go into effect soon. The fiscal 2013 National Defense Authorization Act requires TRICARE to increase co-pays on brand name and non-formulary medications that are not filled at military clinics or hospitals. Generic medication copays will not increase. Increases will be effective sometime in February, depending on when system changes can be made, and the publication of a required federal notice. TRICARE Pharmacy copays vary based on the class of drug and where beneficiaries choose to fill their prescriptions.The copay for generic medications stays at $5 when a prescription is filled at a network pharmacy. There is no co-pay when generic prescriptions are filled through TRICARE Home Delivery. The new co-pay for a 30-day supply of a brand name medication purchased at a retail net-
work pharmacy will be $17, up from the current $12. Beneficiaries using the home delivery mode will pay $13 for brand name drugs, up from $9; however, the home delivery price is for a 90-day supply. The greatest change in co-pays applies to non-formulary medications. The $25 co-pay for these drugs increases to $44 at retail pharmacies and $43 through home delivery. The TRICARE Uniform Formulary is a list of all the medications TRICARE covers. For fiscal 2014 and beyond, the new law directs that co-pays increase annually by the same percentage as retiree cost-of-living adjustments. In years when a cost of living allowance increase would total less than a dollar, it will be delayed a year and combined with the next adjustment so increases will always be $1 or more. Pharmacies at military hospitals and clinics will continue to provide medications with no co-pays. Visit www.tricare.mil for more information.
