UNITED STATES 100th ANNIVERSARY FORT BLISS FIRST DAY COVER 1948
Fort Bliss is a United States Army post in the U.S. states of New Mexico and Texas. With an area of about 1,700 sq mi (4,400 km2), it is the Army's second-largest installation behind the adjacent White Sands Missile Range. It is TRADOC's largest installation, and has the Army's largest Maneuver Area (for practicing military maneuvers) behind the National Training Center. Part of the fort in El Paso County, Texas, is a census-designated place (CDP); it had a population of 8,264 at the 2000 census. Fort Bliss also provides the largest contiguous tract of virtually unrestricted airspace, (1,500 sq miles), which is needed for missile and artillery training and testing in the Continental United States.
Fort Bliss maintains and trains several U.S. Patriot Missile Battalions. Between 2008 and 2011, elements of the U.S. 1st Armored Division will arrive at Fort Bliss to replace Air Defense Artillery (ADA) Brigades moving to Fort Sill, transforming Fort Bliss to a Heavy Armor Training post.
Fort Bliss National Cemetery is also located on the post. The fort is named for Mexican-American War soldier William Wallace Smith Bliss.
