The installation is beautifully maintained and is filled with a rich historic history. I personal did not expect or ever dream that I would settle down in the Greater Kansas area and work on the installation.

If you have a chance to tour the base you won't be... 更多
Much of the old fort buildings, grounds have been preserved. Love going there to explore. The fort is also the site of the Army's Diciplinary Barracks and the Command and Staff college for officers headed for the full colonel and above ranks.

But they have blue hill, catfish, and trout in the lakes. So come on out and bring your fishing gear and spend a day at the lake with the... 更多
