Fort Hood officials who were instrumental in the planning process of the Mission Training Complex break the ground for the facilities.

Post breaks ground on training center


Despite the overcast afternoon, the 1st Cavalry Division band commanded the audience with their upbeat tunes, and two large construction machines staged the backdrop for the nine Fort Hood officials that dug their shovels into the dirt for the Mission Training Complex groundbreaking ceremony Nov. 9.

The new MTC will support individual through collective, simulation-driven mission command training for III Corps and Fort Hood units.

"This new facility being built will more than double our current square footage for the mission training complex," Bill Nance, chief of operations for the Fort Hood mission training complex, said.

The facility will be 140,481 square feet and will replace the original MTC that currently encompasses 10 facilities scattered throughout the installation.

"It will consolidate our mission training into a single campus," Nance said.
