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 Chieftain, Geronimo. 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. N , 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 ', a f fgegjwv' was A K -1 1-get wif' 4 I 6 Q2-'rgffgj QM , the order 21 March 1956 making Fort Leonard Wood a permanent installation. The essence of Fort Leonard Wood is best described by the Word "training," The fort gives recruit basic training, common and engineer specialist training and combat engineer training. Among the specialized types of training soldiers can get at the fort are constructiong machinery and earth moving equipment operation and maintenanceg structural steel and sheet metal workingg .plumbingg carpentryg electrical installation and many other specialties.

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. f' OHN H.

RED CROSS BUILDING BRIGADE CHAPEL ACS BUILDING BR IGADE HEADQUARTERS MUSEUM RECEPTION STA TI ON 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 become such an important part of their Basic Training. Y 'illlw 16 ffl 1 ' BASIC TRAINING BEGINS "I 'IE' W' . 2 'K ..t 1 Nm nt WT 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 your life. After a short introduction of "I am your Drill Sergeant and I will teach you to become a soldier. " bl" 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. 20 6' 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 dedicated. 21 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.

In the clamor of battle, at a distance from complete medical facilities, a life can depend upon their knowledge of Hrst aid. Through lectures, demonstrations and practical exercises, the trainees become experts in Hrst aid. They learn to deal with splints, ties and bandagesg to give emergency treatment in case of shock, bleeding, fractures, snake or insect bites and drowning. They acquire skills which will prove valuable both in the Army and in civilian life. X A fi ,,,,v- WM N-...M 'X mem? NUCLEAR BIOLOGICAL REE CHEM CAL WARFARE The battleHeld of the future - what may it be like? In the face of uncertainty, preparedness is essential. The Army prepares its soldiers with the necessary training in defense against nuclear, biological and chemical agents. How is the NBC attack recognized? How to protect oneself . . . what first aid measure can be taken? The soldier learns the questions and the answers. Practical training in the use of the protective mask is an essential part of NBC training. The constant drills pay off when the word "GAS" is heard. 27 28 US. WEAPONS 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 defense of his squad, section, platoon, or unit. Some of the best designed Weapons in the World, when properly employed are extremely effective.

CONFIDENCE CUURSE I The confidence course helps to develope team work, build spirit and instill a high sense of seltfconlidence. Negotiating obstacles of great height or requiring considerable physical strength are challenging. Though demanding both physically and mentally the conHdence course is a great team and spirit builder. This test of physical endurance is made easier because your buddy helps give encouragement when you need it most. Team work helps to build units that operate together with a sense of spirit and pride in their accomplishments.

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.

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. ,a " fy' AW?

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. -we FORT LEONARD WOOD, MISSOURI FOURTH BRIGADE William M. Shepherd Colonel U.
