In celebration of Veterans Day, Fort Hamilton honored veterans at its annual Veterans Day ceremony November 7 at the community club where veterans from the last five wars, from WWII to the current War on Terrorism, spoke candidly about their campaign experiences.

Hoops for Troops

Fort Hamilton was the first installation to kickoff the Hoops for Troops program November 6, a program under the national Commitment to Services and National Basketball Association initiative, in which Play Station was a sponsor.  Play Station donated Play Station games and televisions to the Fort Hamilton community and brought its gaming truck with about two dozen Play Station kiosks for the Fort Hamilton community to play video games. The NBA also donated two basketball hoops to the Fort Hamilton.  NBA legend Nate "Tiny" Archibald hosted a basketball clinic for kids at the sports and fitness center. See more photo...
