Fort Leavenworth

About

Built in 1827, Fort Leavenworth was originally established to protect the Santa Fe Trail during the westward expansion of settlers in the early 19th century. It was used as a training camp during the Civil War, although it never came under direct Confederate assault. It was during the late 19th century the installation began what would become its two most well-known functions: as a prison for soldiers, and a school for the training of infantry and cavalry officers. During World War I and II, graduates of the Command and General Staff College included Generals Patton, Bradley and Eisenhower. They, along with numerous others, showed the great strategic value in the school and its curriculum.

Today, in addition the school and the Military Corrections Complex, other tenants of Fort Leavenworth include the US Army's Combined Arms Center and other units of the Army's Training and Doctrine Command.

Mission Statement: 
Our mission is to provide standardized, effective and efficient services, facilities and infrastructure to Soldiers, Families and Civilians for an Army and Nation engaged in persistent conflict.

Fort Benjamin Harrison

About

Founded in 1903, Fort Benjamin Harrison was mostly active during the two World Wars. Not only was Fort Harrison used to house POW's, it also trained Military Police and housed a Civilian Military Training Camp. Shortly after the war, in 1948 Fort Harrison became an Air Force base, although that was short lived, with the Army regaining control in 1950.

In 1996 Fort Benjamin Harrison was closed by the Base Realignment and Closure Commission. Although closed, and with many of the buildings torn down or repurposed, several Reserve and National Guard units, along with a commissary and PX, are still located at the base.
