Gov. Rick Perry will join Lt. Gen. Mark Milley, III Corps and Fort Hood commander, and representatives from the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund at 2 p.m. Thursday in a groundbreaking for the Fort Hood Intrepid Spirit Center of Excellence.

The $11 million center will provide care and services for wounded warriors on post. It's the fifth of nine planned facilities across the country.

Upon completion, the center will provide services to military members with complex medical conditions including traumatic brain injury, behavioral health, chronic pain and other related ailments.
