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.
