LIVING ON AN ARMY POST
can be one of the most enjoyable experiences of your military career. For one thing, an
Army post offers something we’re all very conscious of in today’s fast moving world – convenience. Fort Bliss has it all. You’ll find
banking, medical, shopping, recreational and religious facilities right at your doorstep. But in order to take full advantage of post
services, you need to acquaint yourself with each special branch. That’s what this section is all about. Hopefully, it will give you
a working knowledge of Fort Bliss’ many services, how they operate, and how you can take advantage of each one.
