Fort Leonard Wood

Fort Leonard Wood

I am writing in response to someone who posted about Fort Leonard Wood. First of all, I have been there, lived there for years. I've heard the whole "Ft Lost in the Woods" thing a 1,000 times....its not true. There are things to do. There is not a mall, but there is shopping Super Walmart, Maurices, Cato, Glicks, Lowes & more JcPenney & Goody's in nearby Rolla. There is the VF Factory Outlet and the Harly Davidson store in nearby Lebanon. For more shopping you will have to drive a little way, (but not 2 hours to St Louis) but it's worth it to get away on a Saturday. 60 miles at Osage Beach you have Target and Outlet Malls. 80 miles in Springfield you will find 2 shopping malls and tons of stores. It is over 100 miles to St Louis, so you may not want to go there unless you are doing Christmas shopping but I always did my Christmas shopping in Springfield. As for not finding a job off post, that is crazy too. I know of plenty of military who were working off post. There is some people who play by the good ole boys rules but we get that here at Ft Bragg as well. That is everywhere! You have a lot of restaurants to choose from as well, sit down and fast food. Also in Rolla there is a skating rink. Thanks!!
