Episode Info: In this episode we discuss the inordinate amount of violence in relation to Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas, and the long list of deaths, murders, and accidents that are only a few of the violent and often deadly situations that have been taking place there at an alarming rate for quite some time. While it is the most populous military installation in the world, there has to be more to it than that. The Fort is thought by many throughout the Army to be a place where the safety of its soldiers is not guaranteed and is a "less than desirable" station. That said, there is ample evidence to support that issues of sexual and physical harassment, along with mental health are not taken seriously within the military as a whole, and it's clear that Fort Hood doesn't stand alone with an abundance of these issues. That said, why does this base in Texas lead the way in cases of suicides, domestic violence, terrorism, and deaths time and time again? Let's talk about it. Our Sources for this episode include: https://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/10/us/10post.htmlAt Army Base, Some Violence Is Too Familiarhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Fort_Hood_shootinghttps://www.armytimes.com/news/your-army/2016/06/05/army-releases-names-of-all-9-soldiers-killed-in-fort-hood-truck-accident/https://www.thechttps://www.stripes.com/news/army/fort-hood-soldier-killed-at-a-texas-strip-club-1.621151/spc-shelby-tyler-jones-1.621https://www.wpxi.com/news/trending/body-3rd-fort-hood-soldier-found-near-texas-base-less-than-month/XAGQN55YE5CPLDX4YDM5Y3LRLY/167ut.com/2020/07/vanessa-guillen-disappearance-at-fort-hood-what-we-know.htmlWhat we know about the disappearance of vanessa guillen by hannah gold https://abc13.com/fort-hood-soldiers-army-deaths-at-pfc-brandon-rosecrans/6317386/https://www.armytimes.com/news/your-army/2020/07/08/family-hopes-autopsy-will-help-strike-dead-fort-hood-soldiers-name-from-deserter-list/https://www.kwtx.com/2020/07/21/fort-hood-identifies-soldier-found-dead-in-area-of-local-lake/https://www.armytimes.com/news/your-army/2016/11/04/missing-fort-hood-soldier-has-been-found-dead/Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/creepitrealpod)...
