Whats so odd about a post having more that one flag? I have seen Fort Hood has at least 3, Fort Knox has at least 2, Fort Leonard Wood has at least 2, and Hohenfels Germany (CMTC) has 2.

What's so odd is that AR 840-10 Chapter 2, Section 2-2 paragraph B states the complete opposite unless authorized by the CG. So unless Fort Hood has 2 other installations within it, I'm pretty sure they are violating the Army Reg.

So why do you have a problem with it you said it yourself "UNLESS AUTHORIZED BY THE CG"...so it means if the post CG says good to go, then its good.


Lead by Example!!!

And why would they ever say no to boot? Who cares?

About the TRUK,
There is only one true Truk and it is located on top of the main post flag pole at Division headquarters.
it has three contents and they are:
one razor
to seperate the blue and stars from the stripes.

one match
To burn the two flag pieces together

on 45 cal. round
this one has 3 stories to it.
The first one is from the old army which says that the commander shoots him/her self.
(its the army's version of the navy's saying of going down with the ship)
the second saying is that the round is to be kept because you dont fully surrender the post until all weapons and rounds are given to the enemy so you keep it to symbolize that you didnt fully give over the post.
and the Third is that the round is used for defence.

I asked my DCSM what he thought was the real meaning for the round and he said i quote " I personally wound use the round to blow a cap in the enemies ass cause I'll be damned if I'll shoot myself so the round is used for self defense".

The TRUK also when it falls will break into 13 pieces representing the original 13 colonies.

I hope this helps you


You completely ignored my post and the fact that a HEMTT has "Truck" in its nomenclature.

WiFi, you are completely lost as this post is in reference to the flag and nothing to do with wheeled vehicles.

I thought I solved this by showing the snopes article showing this is all BS anyhow?

With all due respect, SGT, I have to disagree. The topic of this thread is "How many trucks are on a post?" The OP mistakenly claimed the answer is one because he thought the only truck (or truk) on a post is on the top of the flagpole, hence why you think the topic of this thread is flagpoles.

Actually there are 3 parts to Fort Hood. We are authorized 3 flags from what my command has said.

Wait a sec. I thought the topic of this thread was talking about flagpoles... Am I missing something here or are you trying to be sarcastic? (Serious question, no disrespect!)

TransAm95NCO ,

I got that information out of one of my fathers military books.
He is a Ret. CPT. of the US Army and has many old army books around his house.

Regardless of how many flags there are on an installation, there is still only one truk, located at the top of the flagpole directly in front of post headquarters. Building one is the monument found at the base of the installation flag pole.

Additionally, the truk represents the "shot heard 'round the world".

I was just looking out the window after I finished reading your post and I see a "truk" right on top of the flag outside our building, and this is no the post HQ, then there is another flag for the post at a different location, soooo.....
