Official Army graphic

Fort Lee is home of the Soldiers, Marines, and Civilians who "Feed You, Fuel You, and Supply You," from the Garrison to the Battlefield. Fort Lee is headquarters of the U.S. Army Combined Arms Support Command, U.S. Army Quartermaster Center and School, the Army Logistics Management College and the U.S. Defense Commissary Agency.

Fort Lee is rich in history and is host to two Army museums, the U.S. Army Quartermaster Museum and the U.S. Army Women's Museum. The fort is named for Confederate General Robert E. Lee. The roads passing through Fort Lee linked Petersburg and City Point (Hopewell), both vital supply and communication centers on the Appomattox River during the Revolutionary War. During the last days of the Revolutionary War, British and Tory troops were engaged in a battle by a small force of Americans near Blandford Church, between Petersburg and the present Fort Lee.

The mission of Fort Lee is to provide logistics doctrine, organizations, training, leader development, and materiel solutions to sustain a campaign quality Army with joint and expeditionary capabilities during peace and war.
