FORT SAM HOUSTON
Fort Sam Houston, often referred to as 'Fort Sam', is a U.S. Army post supported by the 502nd Mission Support Group. Fort Sam Houston is one of the U.S. Army's earliest installations, dating back as early as 1845. With over 900 historical structures on base, Fort Sam is home to some of the oldest Army structures in the country, and in 1975 Fort Sam Houston was designated an official Historical Landmark. Today, Fort Sam Houston serves as command headquarters for U.S. Army North (formerly the 5th Army) and South, as well as numerous other Army, Air Force, and DoD elements. In 2010, Fort Sam Houston joined forces with both Lackland and Randolph Air Force bases, creating Joint Base San Antonio.
Located near the heart of San Antonio, Texas, Fort Sam Houston is surrounded by a rich colonial heritage, as well as a diverse culture. While the base alone is home to a number of historical landmarks, the most notable landmark in the area would be the Alamo, which is only an 11-minute drive away. The San Antonio River Walk, a prominent shopping and dining area, is another iconic attraction near Fort Sam Houston. Other popular attractions include the King William Historical District, Mission San Jose, and the Guenther House.
On base, Fort Sam Houston offers many amenities, including a full-sized pool, a fitness center, and shopping. Additionally, Fort Sam Houston is one of only three military bases in the state of Texas to have a school district of its own with a K-12 enrollment of approximately 1600 students. Housing is available on Fort Sam Houston; in fact, many of the housing options available are registered as National Historic Landmarks.
