I know IOTL Fort Hood is just outside Killeen, but in the time of this campaign there is not any military base or anything nearby is there? I know Fort Hood wasn't built until 1942 IOTL. I tried to research if there was anything nearby before Fort Hood, but I cannot find anything. I assume that means nothing existed before it was built, but I just wanted to make sure.
