8 Of The Most Advanced Military Bases The U.S. Operates
The United States not only has one of the largest militaries in the world, but it also has some of the largest and most advanced military bases as well. These bases are located all over the country as well as overseas, with the Ramstein Air Base in Germany being one such example. Out of the military installations operated by the U.S., here are some of the most advanced.
8. Fort Bragg
Fort Bragg’s size alone makes it one of the most renowned military bases not only in the country, but around the globe. Located in North Carolina, it houses 238,646 people over its 163,000 acres, making Fort Bragg the world’s largest military base in terms of population (as of 2017). Other than the massive number of military personnel, students, civilians, and other folks who call this base home, Fort Bragg is known for serving as a place that fostered the development of military tactics during World War II. The base houses several special units such as the 82nd Airborne Division and U.S. Army Special Operations Command.
7. Fort Campbell
Fort Campbell is just shy of Fort Bragg when it comes to population numbers, boasting 234,914 people over its 105,000 acres. Like Fort Bragg, this military base was active during World War II and continues to be a vital cog in the U.S. military machine. Located on the Kentucky-Tennessee state line, it houses the 101st Airborne Air Assault Division, 5th Special Forces Group, and 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment.
