More About The United States Army at Fort Knox by Matthew D. Rector
 
 
 
Overview
Located in north-central Kentucky, Fort Knox is one of the army s major installations and is home to several commands, including the United States Army School and Center and the United States Army Recruiting Command. The fort s history dates to 1903, when a series of military maneuvers was held by the United States Army in West Point, Kentucky. When World War I required the establishment of additional military training facilities, Camp Knox was created. The post closed as a permanent installation in 1922, but it remained an active training center for army programs and, briefly, a national forest. On January 1, 1932, Camp Knox was made a permanent installation again and has since been known as Fort Knox. In 1940, the Armored Force was established, paving the way for the continuing evolution of armed warfare. The United States Bullion Depository chose its location because of its proximity to this post.
