This week’s #ThrowbackThursday post is a salute to #FortLeonardWood and to United States Veterans everywhere! Help #PatrioticPulaski honor the defenders of our freedom with our #VeteranThanks project. Details can be found at goo.gl/0XpNXJ.

Millions of United States Army careers have began at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, many of them in barracks like those pictured on this vintage historical postcard. Fort Leonard Wood, in #PulaskiCountyUSA, was created December 1940, and except for a brief time before the Korean War has been training soldiers ever since. Today, Fort Leonard Wood trains service members from all branches of service- Army, Marine Corp, Navy, Air Force and even Coast Guard.
