The Army has spoken through official orders…we’re PCSing to Fort Leavenworth this summer. Our time there will be brief – only about a year – and then we’re off on another not-yet-determined assignment. It’s funny, when a non-Army person asks we’re heading, our Fort Leavenworth, Kansas response typically yields a look of sympathy and “at least it’s not for long“. But those familiar with Command and General Staff College (CGSC) give us a knowing smile and excitedly tell us how wonderful of a year it is and how it will be a great family experience.
Fort Leavenworth is about 40 miles northwest of Kansas City, Missouri so we will be in close proximity to good bbq, beer, music, and sports. Those of you unfamiliar with that part of the country, please don’t feel sorry for us…Kansas City is an amazing place – Huffington Post even named it the Coolest City in America. We plan to make the most of our time at Leavenworth and look forward to calling the area ‘home’ – at least for a little while.
