Ft Hood Welcome Home to the Great Place


As one of the anvils for America’s Hammer, Fort Hood is the Army’s premier force projection platform. We are celebrating our 75th anniversary at the Great Place.

We have been training total Army forces and deploying units to answer the nation’s call for 75 years. While Fort Hood is an immense place — more than 340 square miles, it is the Great Place because of the people. It is the Soldiers, Civilians, contract employees and Families who live and work at Fort Hood that make it great.

Our unique partnerships with the world-class communities surrounding us make Fort Hood a superb place to serve and live. This guidebook includes highlights of these communities, which remain steadfast in their support of our Soldiers and their Families.

With so many resources available to assist the Fort Hood military community, this guidebook is one way to reach out to newcomers to the Great Place, as well as provide a guide for the post. You can also find helpful information and keep up with the latest news through our free weekly newspaper, the Fort Hood Sentinel, which is published in print and online at

The internet and social media play a big role in the post’s efforts to connect to its community. The Fort Hood homepage,, hosts a wealth of information and drop-down menus as well as links to Fort Hood’s social media pages. I encourage you to add Fort Hood’s Facebook page,, to your daily newsfeed. To stay on top of Family, Morale, Welfare and Recreation activities, go to for updated information.

Fort Hood is truly an exceptional place to call home, and this guidebook should help you take advantage of everything it has to offer.
