Fort Riley was established in 1853 along the Santa Fe Trail to protect settlers and travelers as they moved westward.
Modern training facilities and ranges at Fort Riley ensure our warfighters are prepared to deploy around the globe in support of our nation's freedom.
Fort Riley features six physical fitness centers with top-of-the-line equipment and programs designed to offer what you need to stay in shape and be healthy.
Fort Riley delivers the full spectrum of the live, virtual, construct, and gaming integrated training environment to the Soldiers of the 1st Infantry Division and partnered National Guard and Army Reserve units.
Irwin Army Community Hospital
Irwin Army Community Hospital opened in 2016, offering the Fort Riley community state of the art facilities.
The Flint Hills region offers residents a diverse array of activities. Explore the natural wonders of the Central Flint Hills and Milford Wetlands, visit cultural and historic sites, or try your hand at indoor and outdoor recreation activites both on and off post.
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.
GOOD TO KNOW
A comprehensive, enduring operation to make every Soldier, Civilian, and Family Member on Fort Riley more resilient and stronger across the five dimensions of strength: physical, emotional, social, family, and spiritual.
