The City Council will have an extra hour in tomorrow's B Session for the one item on the agenda: the Camp Bullis Joint Land Use Study.

Surrounded by development, Fort Sam Houston officials bought 28,000-acre Bullis in 1917 so soldiers could train in safer, less-populated environs.

Over the years, the camp developed into a critical training area, with firing ranges, maneuvering areas, airdrop zones, and landing areas for helicopters and fixed-wing craft. But Fort Sam and Camp Bullis are now best known for their developments in military medicine that give our wounded the highest survivability rates in history.
