With U.S. Force in Austria -- Winter weather added to the realism of "Exercise Frosty," a recent Army field maneuver in Austria which included Pfc. Benjamin L. Reed, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lagrand Reed, of Schneider.
Marked throughout by frequent rain, sleet and snow, the exercise gave Austrian-based American soldiers field training in the actual terrain they are guarding.
U.S. Army units took the roles of both aggressor and defending forces in the problem, which was conducted in the Salzkammergut mountains.
Observers at the operation included Fred Korth, assistant secretary of the Army for manpower and reserve forces, and Lt. Gen. Charles L. Bolte, commanding general of the U.S. Seventh Army.
Reed has been in Austria since August, 1951, and is assigned as an ambulance driver in the 246th Medical Ambulance Company. He entered the Army in January, 1951.
