THE GREAT PLACE
Fort Hood is the Army's premier installation to train and deploy heavy forces. A 214,968-acre installation, Fort Hood is the only post in the United States capable of stationing and training two armored divisions.
The rolling, semi-arid terrain is ideal for multifaceted training and testing of military units and troops.
Additionally the Killeen, Copperas Cove, Harker Heights, Belton, Gatesville, Temple and Lampassas communities that surround us are a model of support for Army Families. One look is all it takes to discover how we earned our famous nickname, "The Great Place."
