This government film looks back at the history of Fort Hood in honor of its 50th anniversary. In addition to detailing how Fort Hood contributed to military operations from World War II to Operation Desert Storm, the film also features home movie footage of the base from the 1940s, narrated by the soldier who operated the camera. An overview of the many commands and brigades that once did or still call Fort Hood home is also included.
