  • As Fort Knox garrison commander, Col. Bruce Jenkins heads seven directorates and he attributes post improvements made during his two-year tenure to a team effort.

    Garrison partner units and community groups “outside the gates” also contributed to the accomplishment of goals and senior commander priorities, Jenkins said.

    School is out, so be careful when you see children playing near the road, that one doesn’t run out into the road chasing a ball or something. Many times, children get engrossed in their play and forget to watch for traffic.

    Our heart goes out to the many in Oklahoma who lost so much: loved ones above all else as well as their homes and places of business. Not only in Oklahoma but in other states there has been tremendous damage from storms.
