Holcomb was bom and raised in
Philadelphia Pa. In 1977
Holcomb enlisted in the United
States Army as a supply special-
ist. He completed tours in Fort Lee
Va. Fort Jackson S.C. and he
ended his time in the military at
Fort Hood Texas.
While at Fort Hood he said he
came to realize that God was call-
ing him to ministry.
After arriving at Fort Hood in
January 1980 Holcomb started the
Soul Winning Action Team minis-
try. From that began The Christian
House of Prayer where he pres-
ently fulfills his calling as pastor.
Holcomb’s messages are not
only carried through the use of
mass media locally but nationally
and internationally too.
“The Bible says ‘For God-who
was the God in the beginning in
the book of Genesis so loved us

privilege to become one with him.
Jesus said ‘Father I pray that they
will be one as we are one.’ So when
we are one with God we are one
with God’s servants.
“How do we become one with
God? How do we become one
within ourselves?” asked Holcomb.
‘To become one within ourselves
we have to accept that we are all
different from everyone but nei-
ther are we superior or inferior than
anyone” he explained.
“When we begin to think that
we are inferior or superior based
upon our skin color or ethnicity
we are borderline blasphemy” he
said. “If your skin is black or white
then that is the way God planned
it. It’s never a skin problem with

We are writing this letter to address the subject of pet control on this base. We have
noticed a severe increase of loose pets in the housing areas to include dogs cats and
rabbits. These uncontrolled pets cause problems for responsible pet owners and resi-
dents. Children and controlled pets are at risk of being bitten and exposed to conta-
gious diseases. We have witnessed numerous pets cause traffic hazards as well as
become victims of the road.
Loose cats have become a nuisance to residents by fighting and crying. Cat owners
should keep their cats indoors at all times unless they are walked on a leash. We have
seen some pets mostly cats loose for weeks at a time. Cats that are left outdoors are
a higher risk for contracting feline leukemia a highly contagious disease. Loose pets
use playgrounds and common areas as bathrooms which is annoying for residents and
children who play in these areas.
One solution would be to make it mandatory that all pets are identified with a
microchip implant (available at the veterinary clinic on post). Your pet can then be
permanently identified. When astray dog or cat is found the owner can be notified and
held responsible. It also helps reunite lost pets with their owners.
Several other U.S. bases have made it mandatory that all pets on post be registered
with a microchip. We would like to see that become mandatory here at Fort Hood as
well. We feel this would greatly decrease the number of abandoned pets on post. It
would also help make pet owners responsible for their actions.
Another solution is to have your pet spayed or neutered. This will only make your
dog or cat abetter pet and help control the increase of unwanted litters. Pets don't
deserve to be abandoned or neglected. They are our best friends.
