FAQ:
Where are your nearest Airports?
Lambert Air Field St.Louis, Mo. - 2 Hour Drive.
Springfield Mo. Branson Regional - 1 hour 15 Minute Drive.
Waynesville Regional Airport on the Fort.
 
What Airport do you recommend?
When you fly into smaller airports it would probably connect from a larger airport, and you would then be paying for that connecting fligt. I reccommend fling into St. louis then renting a car. St.Louis is a 2 hour drive to Fort Wood at 70 miles an hour.
Air Commuter service is available between St. Louis and Fort Leonard Wood. USA Express operates an airport shuttle service 7 times daily between Fort Leonard Wood and St. Louis Lambert Airport. The phone number is 800-872-9399 or you can visit the site online at www.usaxonline.com. You must make reservations in advance.
 
Directions from St.Louis Lambert Field Airport.
When you arrive in St.Louis Lambert Field you go west bound on I-70 about 4 miles then go south on 270 about 15 miles, then go west on I-44. I-44 will take you about 135 miles west to Fort Leonard Wood Exit 161, . Exit 161 is 3 miles from the Main gate of Fort Leonard Wood. Exit 161 is where you will find the largest concentration of Motels and Hotels. This is where most people stay when visiting this area, it is close to shopping and restaurants.
 
I need a room on Fort Leonard Wood!
The Fort is an Army Base not a City and doesn't have places like
 
 St. Robert Joins the Main Gate of Fort Leonard Wood and is where most people get rooms while visiting Fort Leonard Wood, MO.
 
 
I'm lost, my son is graduating and I don't know what to do?

The first event is the Graduation Banquet.

The final event is the Graduation Ceremony.  This event serves to officially enter your soldier into the ranks of the Army and Corps of Engineers.

The days prior to graduation will be very busy for your soldier.  If you do arrive early, please remember that there is no time available to visit with your loved one prior to the banquet and graduation. 

 

UPDATE TO THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION.. CURRENTLY RESTRICTIONS ON ENTRANCE TO THE GATE HAVE BEEN REDUCED. IT NOW ONLY REQUIRES THAT ALL ADULTS HAVE IDENTIFICATION IN THE VEHICLE. YOU WILL STILL NEED PROOF OF INSURANCE AND REGISTRATION IF YOU ARE IN YOUR PERSONAL CAR. IN THE CASE OF RENTAL CARS THE RENTAL CAR COMPANIES PROVIDE YOU WITH EVERYTHING YOU WILL NEED EXCEPT IDENTIFICATION CARDS AND DRIVERS LICENSES. IN THE FUTURE THEY MAY GO BACK TO THE WAY THINGS WERE DONE, DEPENDS ON NATIONAL SECURITY LEVELS..

If you are planning to attend, please be aware that access to the post is restricted and a visitorís pass for each vehicle will be required.   To request a post visitorís pass the following information is required and should be given to your soldier no less than two weeks prior to graduation:

Operatorís full name and driverís license number (for each driver)

Vehicle make, model, year, color, plate number, and state (for each vehicle)

Upon receipt of the above information, they will mail your vehicle pass(es) to you.  If you do not receive your pass in the mail, contact the unit commander.  When you receive your pass, it is mandatory that you fill out the personal and vehicle information on the card, prior to leaving home, and have it already placed on your dashboard before entering the main gate.   In addition to your pass, you will need the following documents upon arrival at Fort Leonard Wood:

Drivers license and proof of insurance (for each driver)

State vehicle registration and safety inspection (for each vehicle if required by state of registration)

Due to the heavy training demands placed on your soldier, please make your own transportation and lodging arrangements.  When you first arrive at Fort Leonard Wood, please stop at the Fort Leonard Wood Information Center, building 9000, located at the front gate.  The itinerary for graduation events will be placed there.  Please note that our installation strictly enforces all traffic rules and regulations.  Also, please be advised that civilians are not authorized to utilize any facilities on post, unless accompanied by a service member.

If for any reason there is an emergency at home and you need to contact your soldier, please call the RED CROSS through your local chapter, hospital, or law enforcement agency.  The RED CROSS maintains an efficient 24-hour worldwide notification service.  Be sure you have your soldierís social security number and address to avoid a delay in service.  There is no charge and most importantly, such notification gives us the ONLY official confirmation that the commander needs to grant emergency leave if demanded by the situation.   For non-emergency contact, or for further assistance, please write, call, or e-mail the Company Commander. On a personal note, you can eat anywhere on Fort Wood without an Id, but you will not be able to buy gas, or shop the PX or Commissary.
