11 Day Trips You Just Gotta Take While at Fort Hood

Fort Hood is the largest armored base in the free world, located in Killeen, Texas. The post is named after Confederate General John Bell Hood. It is located halfway between Austin and Waco, about 60 miles from each in the State of Texas


John Bell Hood, born in Kentucky, graduated West Point in 1853. Hood's Texas Brigade charged and broke the union position at Gaines' Mill, but at the price of every field officer in the brigade, except for him, being killed or wounded. He would fight in most of the large battles of the war and would eventually command the Army of the Tennesee during the disastrous Franklin and Nashville Campaign. Hood would end the war with only 1 good arm and 1 leg and he died in 1879 of yellow fever.
