This is too funny not to share.  Boy 1 has been a Military Brat his entire life.  He has lived on many different military post throughout his 15 years;  Fort Hood, Fort Leonard Wood, Fort Carson and Fort Leavenworth just to name a few. 

A few weeks ago we were driving on I35 heading towards Denton, on this trip we always drive through Fort Worth. This is how our conversation went:
Boy 1 - "Mom, why haven't we ever been stationed at Fort Worth?"  
Me -  "There is no military post in Fort Worth son."
Boy 1 looks at me like I have 2 heads - "then why is it called Fort Worth?"
Me - "Boy 1, I don't know what you are talking about; it has always been called Fort Worth."
Boy 1 - "FORT Worth"
Me - OH!!  I never thought of that - no, no - there used to be a military post in Fort Worth, but now it is just a town."  And then I died laughing!!! 

Upon further discussion I discovered Boy 1 has always though Fort Worth was the coolest military post ever!  It has so much cool stuff...unlike most military post....  bahahahahaha....I'm still laughing over this!

There is still a Military base in Fort Worth. The old Carswell Air Force base there are still Military planes and equipment there I'm not sure what they call it now but it is a very small base from what it use to be back in the 80s.

Fort Worth was an out post for the U.S.Army in the early 1800s
