  1. As the son of a member of the 29th Division who was at Omaha Beach on D-Day, I always find stories of the history of Fort Meade interesting. My father,Clifton Bitgood, was from Connecticut, but when he enlisted in 1942, he was sent to Fort Meade for basic training. I know he had memories of Meade. When my parents visited us in Laurel in the early 1970’s enroute to Arizona to live, I asked if he wanted to go through Fort Meade one day when were going somewhere. He declined saying he had seen enough of it.
