FORT HOOD —  State and post officials broke ground Thursday on the National Intrepid Center of Excellence Satellite Center at Fort Hood.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry stood with Lt. Gen. Mark Milley, III Corps and Fort Hood commander, and Col. Ivan Speights, Darnall's deputy commander for administration and chief of staff, to kick off construction of the 25,000-square-foot facility.

"It's really amazing," Milley said. "The work being done in support of our wounded warriors and soldiers is tremendous."

Funded through the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, the center will treat service members with traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder using unique treatment options. It will be under the direction of Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center, the center will coordinate care with the treatment options already available at Fort Hood.
