The Garrison holds a Newcomers Briefing usually on the second month of every quarter. View the Event Calendar (or search for "Newcomers" above) for the next brief. This briefing session is mandatory for all new military, Department of the Defense (DoD) Civilians and optional for family members. Those personnel with Army Knowledge Online (AKO) access should review the Newcomers Briefing slides (PowerPoint format) available here: https://www.us.army.mil/suite/files/29791574. The slides are very helpful to review even before the session.
Any questions generated from reviewing the slides can be asked at that session or sent in as an Interactive Customer Evaluation (ICE) comment to the appropriate agency ahead of time. If sent in as ICE comments, do not worry about rating the service, simply skip down to the remarks block and ask the question. Please ensure you provide a contact name, phone number or email.

Don’t be intimidated by the security checkpoint. The security measures are to keep all of us safe!
As you approach the security check, please have current license, registration and proof of insurance available. All passengers older than 16 need a government identification card such as a driver’s license, passport or military ID. Expired paperwork can keep you from entering. When you reach the security officers, they will give you further instructions. These may include you exiting your vehicle and the officers conducting a vehicle search.
All occupants must wear seat belts. Kids that are younger than 5, or that weigh less than 45 pounds, must be in a car seat.
Drivers are not allowed to use hand-held cellular phones on Fort Leavenworth but hands-free cell phones are okay.
