FORT BRAGG
We pride ourselves on being the city of history, heroes, and a
hometown feeling. Nearby Fort Bragg is where the ÒheroesÓ
part comes into play. With more than 50,000 military personnel,
Fort Bragg is home to more service members than any other
military installation in the country.
This world-famous Army post is home to the highly venerated
82nd Airborne Division and the XVIII Airborne Corps. We are
also home to the famed Golden Knights parachute team.
Established by Congress in 1918 as a field artillery site, the post
was originally called ÒCamp Bragg.Ó After the threat of closure
in 1922, the named changed to Fort Bragg to signify its status as
a permanent installation.

Fort Bragg gained its airborne tradition in 1934 when the first
parachute jump using an artillery observation balloon as a
platform was completed. The first five major Airborne divisions
in World War II all trained at Fort Bragg. With the creation of
the Psychological Warfare Center (now the Special Operations
Command) in the 1950s, Fort BraggÕs role as a military
epicenter continued to grow.
American citizens with valid identification are welcome to visit
Fort Bragg as well as all museums and historical sites. United
States visitors are required to pass through the checkpoint
entrance on the All-American Freeway. Foreign visitors need
a sponsor to tour the sites on base.
See listings on page 20 for Fort Bragg attractions information.
