    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: A scenic view can be had by visiting the hill overlooking the army airfield. The hill has an atomic cannon and other old artillery pieces. The hill is located next to the airfield and the interstate highway. If the post is closed to the public, this area may still be accessible. (You can see a photo of the atomic cannon by visiting brdwtchr's Junction City Kansas page)

    Favorite thing: Becky got inside of this big tank. I made a travelogue just for fun called, 'Becky gets drafted' using photos we took at the open house.

    Fondest memory: My fondest memory would have to be seeing the honor guard in action. My second fondest memory was going to Fort Riley when I was young to visit my uncle John. He was stationed there during the 1970's.

    Favorite thing: Visit the Calvary Museum. It contains a lot of interesting exhibits detailing the history of both mounted and armored calvary at Fort Riley. There is also minor exhibits on other aspects of Army life.
    Their email is cavalry@flinthills.com
    And phone is (785)784-5797

    Fondest memory: Nightfire at range 18! There is a spot were civilians can park and watch as the M1A1 tanks light up the Kansas prarie with heavy weapons.
