Kansas Army Installations where our lawyers practice:

Fort Leavenworth, Leavenworth


Fort Leavenworth is a military base in Leavenworth County, Kansas. Built in 1827 and being one of the oldest active posts of the US Army, the base has earned the nickname, the “International Center of the Army.” The post has also been awarded as Army Community of Excellence numerous times. Fort Leavenworth is now home to the US Army Combined Arms Center, the Command and General Staff College, and the 705th Military Police Battalion.

The Combined Arms Center stationed in Fort Leavenworth is given the primary mission of preparing the Army, especially its leaders, for combat situations. Fort Leavenworth is now recognized as the center for excellence in combined arms education, doctrine, and leader development for the Army.

Fort Riley, Riley

Fort Riley is an Army post located near the Kansas River in Northeast Kansas. The installation was established in 1853 as a base for Westward expansion in Kansas, and has grown much to become known as Home of America’s Army. The fort is named after Major General Bennett C. Riley, the last military governor of California before it became a US state.

Because the base used to house the US Army Cavalry headquarters, it was chosen as the place to construct the US Army Cavalry Museum. The post is currently home to the 1st Infantry Division which replaced the 24th Infantry division that used to garrison the post. $9 million is being spent on a new Warrior Zone (recreational facility) that will be five times bigger than the current facility.

Highlights of Kansas

Kansas is located on the American Great Plains and it has become the 34th state in 29th January, 1861. After the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854, two territories were opened to settlement allowing the new people to determine whether the states will be admitted to the union and free or slave.

North and south competed to send the majority of its settlers into the region and this led to violence and the territory was soon known as “Bleeding Kansas”. Kansas is known as part of America’s agricultural land, and it is home to US military installation Fort Leavenworth. The state is involved in implementing the Common Core State Standards for students and educators. Kansas state libraries provide a one stop shop for student research resources.
