Overview
Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri

Fort Leonard Wood, a military community located in the beautiful south central Missouri Ozarks, covers more than 61,000 acres. The fort is located in Pulaski County, Missouri. Fort Leonard Wood is home of the U.S. Army Maneuver Support Center, where all chemical, engineer and military police soldiers, plus many marines, airmen, sailors, coast guardsmen and international students from allied nations receive training.

In January 1941, the installation was designated as Fort Leonard Wood, in honor of Major General Leonard Wood, who served our country for 40 years and was the Army's Chief of Staff from 1910 to 1914. Since 2000, Fort Leonard Wood has been home to the Army Engineer, Chemical, and Military Police Schools, under the combined Maneuver Support Center (MANSCEN).

The Maneuver Support Center, enabled by a world-class garrison at Fort Leonard Wood, creates Warriors and develops leaders and capabilities that assure the mobility, freedom of action, and protection of the forces they support.
