Fort Leavenworth has updated its policy on the display of flags in public view on the installation. The new policy is aligned with the latest Department of Defense and Army policy. No divisive flags or symbols that are prejudicial to good order and discipline may be flown anywhere in public view on post. The only flags that are allowed to be flown on public and government buildings on Fort Leavenworth are flags of U.S. states and territories and the District of Columbia; military service flags; flag or general officer flags; presidentially-appointed, Senate-confirmed civilian flags; Senior Executive Services and military department-specific SES flags; the POW/MIA flag; flags of other countries, for which the United States is an ally or partner, or for official protocol purposes; flags of organizations in which the United States is a member, such as NATO; and ceremonial, command, unit, or branch flags or guidons.
All personnel on Fort Leavenworth are required to wear face coverings inside all facilities unless otherwise posted or approved. Masks will be worn outside if social distancing cannot be maintained. All military members will wear face coverings off the installation and within public settings. All Army civilians will comply with the health directors from local authorities on face coverings when off post.
