the latest from Fort Hood as troops prepare for possible action against terrorists
U.S ARMY TANKERS AT FORT HOOD ARE STEPPING UP TRAINING IN PREPARATION FOR MILITARY ACTION. THE HUGE CENTRAL TEXAS MILITARY POST IS HOME TO THE FIRST CAVALRY DIVISION, ONE OF THE ARMY'S MAIN HEAVY TANK UNITS. THE DIVISION FOUGHT IN DESERT STORM AND EQUIPPED WITH THE ABRAMS MAIN BATTLE TANK. NO WORD HAS COME YET AS TO WHEN OR WHERE FORT HOOD UNITS WILL BE DEPLOYED. THE SECRETARY OF THE ARMY HAS SAID U.S. FORCES ARE PREPARED TO CONDUCT SUSTAINED LAND COMBAT OPERATIONS. (SOT- "If we do end up going to combat, these guys are the best trained tankers in the army today and we are on the newest and the best tanks today. So I feel pretty confident that if we are called we can do are best and get the job done.") RECAP
