Fort Hood operates out of Killeen, Texas, which sits halfway between Waco and Austin on the eastern fringe of the Texas Hill Country. The intense summer heat in the heart of Texas makes Fort Hood an ideal training ground to condition American troops for deployment to the scorching hot desserts of the Middle East.
A Look Back at Fort Hood
Named after Confederate General John Bell Hood, Fort Hood opened in August of 1942 just in time to ramp up deployment numbers to Asia and Europe. The army developed tank destroyers during World War II to negate the tactical advantage enjoyed by German armored units.
Fort Hood gave the army ample amount of open space to test the new tanks and train soldiers to operate the high-tech anti-armored vehicles. At over 108,000 acres, Fort Hood became the army’s preferred base to test a wide variety of cutting edge military equipment, without putting the public in harm’s way. III Corps relocated to Fort Hood from California in 1954 to assume responsibility for training combat units. During the 1950s, Fort Hood reactivated the 4th Armored Division for deployment to Germany. Fort Hood acted as one of the principal centers of army basic training during the Vietnam era.
Fort Hood in 2015
As one of the largest military bases found anywhere in the world, Fort Hood accommodates the 1st Calvary Division, 13th Sustainment Command, 3rd Armored Calvary Regiment, and First Army Division West. Before the decline of the Soviet Union, the army touted Fort Hood as the largest military base in the free world. Basic training changed after September 11, 2001, as the army spent less time training recruits for water maneuvers and more time preparing troops for hostile terrain and weather conditions that define Middle Eastern warfare. The same training paradigm operates in the year 2015. Robert Gray Army Airfield expanded in early 2015 to increase the number of civilian passengers that use Fort Hood as a flight center.
