A Brief History of Fort Bliss
Located in El Paso, Texas, Fort Bliss enjoys a unique position among army
bases across the U.S. The main post of Fort Bliss is based in the metropolitan
El Paso city although almost all of the training grounds and base camps
are in New Mexico. Another interesting feature about Fort Bliss is that
a significant proportion of the housing for military personnel is located
off-base well within the neighboring community.
Fort Bliss was established at the end of the Mexican War when a new need
arose- to defend the new border and to protect settlers and migrants from
Indian attacks. The base also served the purpose of providing a means
to survey the terrain for a new transcontinental railroad here. The base
was officially set up in September 1848, briefly closed subsequently and
reopened in 1854 with the new name- Fort Bliss. It was here that thousands
of U.S. soldiers received their training during the Cold War.

Germany for 40 years, calls Fort Bliss Home. Apart from this, the 11

th Sustainment Brigade, the 1

It has recently been decided that a Brigade Combat team stationed at Fort
Bliss will be downsized and the soldiers reassigned by 2017 as part of

the personnel may have to lodge a protest or make a formal complaint to
protect themselves and their families or situations where the enlisted
