Former Texas Governor Rick Perry will join the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF) and the Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center to officially open the new Intrepid Spirit center at Fort Hood, which will treat U.S. service members suffering from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and psychological health conditions, on Wednesday, March 9 at 11:00 a.m.
Fort Hood’s new Intrepid Spirit center cost approximately $11 million to construct and equip with the latest in brain technology and treatment facilities, and spans 25,000 square feet. Funding for the project was raised privately through the IFHF, a not-for-profit organization and national leader supporting the men and women of the United States Armed Forces and their families.
The facility is the fourth in a series of nine centers located at military bases around the country built by the IFHF. Intrepid Spirit centers currently are operational at Fort Belvoir, VA, Camp Lejeune, NC, and Fort Campbell, KY; and a center at Fort Bragg, NC will open later this month.
