Soldiers In Training At Fort Leonard Wood Will Get Holiday Leave Despite Coronavirus Concerns

Fort Leonard Wood is moving forward with plans for holiday leave for its soldiers, despite concerns about the coronavirus and travel.

The two weeks in December known as block leave provides a rare opportunity for entry-training soldiers to leave the post and see their families. It will go on as planned but with new precautions.

Brig. Gen. James Bonner, commander at Fort Leonard Wood, said the leave is more important than ever this year.

“The operational tempo of our team in 2020 makes block leave vital to the well-being of our people. We must take care of the physical, mental and spiritual health of our military, civilians and families,” Bonner said.
