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
for, and maintenance of, minimum trained strengths of
the Guard and Reserves; including manning, equipping,
training, maintenance, support services, and planning.
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
