Military related issues, on the War and Home Fronts, 1961 thru 1980

     For most of the period 1961 thru 1980, the 34th Infantry Division
    had been inactivated, and many of its components assigned to the
                                       47th Infantry Division.


 The 168th Infantry Regiment continued service, within various
      organizational structures, such as the 1st Battle Group,
                          and the 47th Infantry Division.

      The Total Force Concept was implemented, so that the
     Regular Army could not conduct an extended campaign
    without mobilizing the Guard and Reserves.  To that end,

    There was, and continues into the 21st Century, support
     for, and maintenance of, minimum trained strengths of
     the Guard and Reserves; including manning, equipping,
     training, maintenance, support services, and planning.



             The Iliad, Book I, Lines 1-15

                      Sing, Goddess, Achilles' rage,
     Black and murderous, that cost the Greeks
     Incalculable pain, pitched countless souls
     Of heroes into Hades' dark,
     And left their bodies to rot as feasts
    For dogs and birds, as Zeus' will was done.
           Begin with the clash between Agamemnon--
    The Greek warlord--and godlike Achilles.

          Which of the immortals set these two
    At each other's throats?
    Zeus' son and Leto's, offended
    By the warlord. Agamemnon had dishonored
    Chryses, Apollo's priest, so the god
    Struck the Greek camp with plague,
    And the soldiers were dying of it
