GENERALLY SPEAKING

Are you a military buff?

Bell County is home to the largest military installation in the free world. Fort Hood, Texas.

The Bell County Museum, located in Belton, has a wonderful display of Camp Hood's origins, later known as Fort Hood. Many families were displaced from long-owned farms and ranches in order for the United States to build a new training facility for its soldiers during WWII.

Belton was home to famous and no-so-famous military men. Among the notable names in the annals of Belton history are Gen. Walton H. Walker and his son, General Sam Sims Walker, as well as Capt. Henry T. Waskow - who was made famous by Ernie Pyle's news article and subsequent movie "GI Joe." These men are just a small sampling of the importance Belton played in military history.

Make a day of it and visit:
