WHO WE ARE
Fort Riley is located in the Flint Hills Region of Kansas. We are home to Soldiers and families of the 1st Infantry Division known as "The Big Red One" which celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2017. There are approximately 15,000 active duty service members assigned to Fort Riley with more than 18,000 family members, 29,000 veterans and retirees and 5,600 civilian employees who live in the region and/or work at the post. The 1st Infantry Division as well as National Guard and Reserve units from several states use the modern training facilities at Fort Riley to gain skills necessary to defend our nation. Garrisons, also called an installation or post, are communities that provide many of the same types of services expected from any small town. Law enforcement, fire protection, sports & recreational facilities, religious activities, child & youth programs are just a small sample of the support and services we provide every day.

Department of the Army Civilians must adhere to the Hatch Act, which is a law intended to assure the public that federal programs are being administered fairly and without the influence of partisan politics.
Military members are under the DOD Directive 1344.10, “Political Activities by Members of the Armed Forces on Active Duty.”
Many of the rules outlined within the Hatch Act and DODD 1344.10 are straightforward: not mentioning your official position when endorsing a candidate in a partisan election; not wearing a political campaign button to work; not soliciting campaign contributions; etc. What may be considered less straightforward is how the Hatch Act and DODD 1344.10 apply to social media and online communication.

Parenting is tough. Being an Army family can add to the challenge, especially when it comes to looking for flexible childcare options.
