Fort Campbell 5th Special Forces Operations Complex Memorialized as Howard Hall

 

Written by Maj. Brandon Bissell
5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) Public Affairs

5th Special Forces based at Fort Campbell, KYFort Campbell, KY – Bob Howard grew up in Opelika, Alabama, in a house on a hill accessed by a single road. At the bottom of the hill living in two houses on either side of the road were two families, each with several boys that were both older and bigger than him.

Bob Howard was a smart boy. He knew the odds were not in his favor if he challenged the boys, so every day on his way home from school he would devise a different plan to get past the boys and up the hill to his home without getting into trouble.
