There are 2 US Army bases located in the state of Kentucky.
Located between Kentucky and Tennessee, Camp Campbell was first planned in 1941. Over the next few years it opened and came to include over 100,000 acres. It was primarily a training ground for the 12th, 14th and 20th Armored divisions and the 25th Infantry Division.
Fort Knox is an army base located in Kentucky that consists of over 100,000 acres of land. The army base is probably most famous for maintaining the Bullion Depository since 1937. This heightened security on the base was brought to the public's attention in movies like Goldfinger.
