The Story of
FORT LEO ARD WOOD
FORT LEONARD WOOD, cover 71,000 acres of the Mark
Twain National Forest in the Missouri Ozarks, southwest of
St. Louis. Activated in 1940, the Fort was named in honor
of Major General Leonard Wood who won the Medal of
Honor for action in the campaign against the Apache Indian
Only a handful of ofHcials were on hand December 1940
to witness the ground breaking ceremonies. On that day, an
unknown soldier of a huge construction Army turned the Hrst
shovelful of dirt for the construction of the nation 's largest
engineer training center, a post that has trained thousands
of fighting men.
The mud was terriHc-so bad as to give the budding
camp nationwide publicity. But the excavators and the
wielders of hammer, trowel and saw surged on in their work.
Almost all workers lived off the post. In spite of all the
difficulties the work preceeded at a furious pace and was
virtually completed the middle of May.
With the completion of 540, 000,000 fort and the 22 mile
railroad leading to it, trainees began coming in full speed.
From the early part of 1941 until the post closed in 1946,
Fort Leonard Wood trained some 300,000 righting men. Such
famous divisions as the 6th, 8th, 75th, 97th and the 70th
trained here during World War II.
During the years the fort lay dormant, only a handful
of groundlceepers were on the premises.
The business of activating an Army post started all over
again for Fort Leonard Wood in 1950, shortly after the
American troops began Hghting in Korea.
This time, Fort Leonard Wood supported the 6th
Armored Division engaged in replacement training ra ther than
a procession of divisions being trained for combat.
On I6 March 1956 the 6th Armored Division was
inactivated and replaced with the United States Army
Training Center, Engineer. The Secretary of the Army signed

You have successfully completed the intensive basic training program
required of each individual in order to graduate to the ranks of the
best trained, best equipped, and best informed soldier in the history
of our Army.
In accomplishing the transformation from civilian to soldier, you
have attained your primary purpose outlined to you in your first day
of basic training--to become a disciplined, motivated soldier who is
qualified with his basic weapon, physically conditioned and drilled
in the fundamentals of soldiering.
As you move on to advanced individual training, or an assignment with
an active Army or reserve component unit, you should be aware that
the officers, drill sergeants and noncommissioned officers of your
cadre are proud of you. You have proven yourself in the trials and
pressures of basic training. You have developed your mind and body,
and accepted the challenge of soldiers before you, you have demonstrated
that your generation has all the determination and ability necessary.
To each of you I extend my sincere congratulations and best wishes for
your continuing success in the years ahead.

This is the gateway to the Army. How do they
get everything accomplished here? This may be
one of the thoughts that occurs on the soldier's
mind as they process through the Fort Leonard
Wood Reception Station. It becomes quite clear
to them they do get a great deal accomplished
during the brief live days stay.
Aptitude test, physical examination, a
classiHcation interview, orientation meeting, a
clothing issue and the creation of a permanent
Hle-all are completed within the few days of
processing at the Reception Station.
The change from civilian to soldier has to be
a swift one, for they will receive intensive training
in the fundamentals of combat soldiering that may
have to be applied in the defense of our country
and their own lives.
The beginning of a new career, new
challenges, and lifelong friendships becomes a
reality as each day passes. Even as the soldiers
move to their training companies, they have begun
to understand a little more of the routine that will

Basic Training begins with the cracking of a Drill Sergeantis voice "Fall In ",
as you disembark the troop transports which have brought you to a new home. A
quick forma tion and you answer to your name "Here Sergeant" to let yourself know
it is really you who is there.
An unfamilar face approaches while you stand in formation. He does not smile,
but he has an air of authority, conHdence, and professionalism in his walk and stride.
He stops in front of you and gazes over the entire platoon forma tion. His eyes show
not a trace of emotion, and as they pierce you inside you realize he is your Drill
Sergeant, That first piercing sensation you will always remember for the rest of
After a short introduction of "I am your Drill Sergeant and I will teach you
to become a soldier. "
What is Basic Training?
The Basic Training program is designed to produce new soldiers who
are motivated, disciplined, physically conditioned, trained in the common
soldierly skills and capable of taking their place in the ranks of the Army
in the Held after Military Occupational Specialty IMOSQ qualiHcation.
Therefore all soldiers who complete Basic Training have:
a. Demonstrated the strength, stamina, and agility to perform the tasks
prescribed and understand the higher standards of physical conditioning
which are required for completion of initial entry training.
b. Demonstrated the desire and have accepted the need to apply
themselves to accomplishing assigned tasks.
c. Understand and adhered to their enlistment obligation, including the
Oath of Enlistment, and their role as soldiers.
d. Sworn their devotion to the Army in its defense of the United States
and principles embodied in the Constitution.
e. Understood and will abide by the Uniform Code of Military Justice
and other statutes and applicable rules and regulations.
f Been trained in the common soldierly skills which apply to all soldiers
regardless of MOS or duty position.
WHAT IS A
DRILL SER GEANT?
They are the cautioning voice, the helpful hand,
the watchful eye that guides the new soldier through
the strenuous Army Training.
They have gained their knowledge through
practical experience. It is properly their job to guide,
instruct, and encourage the young people who are
training to become soldiers.
They are seasoned graduates of the Drill Sergeants
School-a course which reviews all the "Basics', of
Basic Training in a curriculum much more strenuous
than Basic Training. They wear the Distinctive Mark
ofa Graduate of that school-the World War l type
campaign hat or the Australian Bush hat.
To the Drill Sergeants at Fort Leonard Wood and
the proud soldiers they have produced, this book is
Training is conducted to teach the soldier how to survive in
a combat condition. He is taught how to negotiate all kinds of
terrain and how to move when under Hre. The soldier is instructed
on battlefield survival by means of many hours of actual field
training under simulated combat conditions.

Practical training in the use of the

word "GAS" is heard.
Here the soldier must become familiar with the
Army,s basic weapons. Ranging from the M60
machine gun, the Army,s light machine gun, to the
M18 IAI anti-personnel mine. The soldier's ability to
recognize the Weapon's characteristics and their uses
may very well play an important role in the future

physical endurance is made easier because your buddy

provides the basis of training and begins on the 25
meter range where they learn to sight and aim,
allowing for variation in wind, terrain, and distanceg
they learn to analyze their own Hring actions and judge

PHYSICAL TRAINING IP Tj
A soldier's training day is not complete without daily
physical training. On or off the P. T. Held a soldiers physical
Htness is being boned to a razors edge. Either on the P. T Field
between 0500 to 1700 hours you can hear the familiar sounds
of repetitions being counted and the echos of soldiers sounding
off with - "More PT Sergeant, more PT!"
A soldier must be tough - tough enough to stand a
demanding daily routineg tough enough to enter combat with
a full measure of strength. Physical Htness, therefore, is an
essential part of a Soldier's training.
The physical training program of the U.S. Army is
designed to develop strength, endurance, agility, and
coordination - and to promote confidence, aggressiveness,
motivation, esprit and teamwork.
What does it take? Miles of running, hundreds of pushups,
dozens of repetitions of the "daily dozenu exercises. The result:
strength for a time which demands strength.

It becomes apparent about this time that the conveniences
of the dining facility are not always available to an Army
training to Hght. lf the soldier trains to Hgh! and work in the
Held, so must he learn to eat in the Held. With practice and
experience it becomes second nature.

BI VO UA C
Previous instruction is climaxed by a bivouac-
encampment exercise in the Held. Here they live in
tents, eat food prepared in the Held and practice the
skills of the Soldier in the forward battle zone.
They march to and from the site of the
encampment-carrying their weapons and full packs.
Not only does this exercise teach the soldiers to
appreciate the conveniences provided by the rear area
facilities, but it reinforces the fact that as soldiers
trained to fight, they must know how to take advantage
of nature and survive in the Held.

GRAD UA TIO
Graduation day has Hnally come. The Day
everyone has waited for, Some of the soldiers that
began training, never Hnished. Some could not meet
the standards, some were discharged for medical
reasons and others were recycled for training. But those
that did complete the training are standing tall. For
many it is their Hrst real achievement in life. For
others, it is one more successful accomplishment.
Parents, husbands, wives and relatives are there to help
celebrate this important day. Now you are a soldier
- ready to go on and learn your new military skill.
Ready, trained and conHdent in being able to do those
skills a 'professional " is required to do.
