    Seeking information about accident at Ft. Hood

    Kevin Clark Newbie

      I’m seeking any information about an accident that happened on Ft. Hood, TX back in 1988. I’m sure it was between March-May 1988.I was with 628th Transportation Company, 180th Transportation Battalion. We took NCOA out for Land Nav. (Training Area 52 or 53). As they were loading up one female soldier was policing around the trucks (M35 series 2½-ton 6x6 Military cargo truck nicknamed "Duce & a half"). The driver of said truck was ready to go. The female soldier walked in front of the vehicle, and by accident the driver......well let’s just say, “It was a bad day.” I’ve been having flashbacks of this accident since then. Can anyone Please help?
