Local officials and leaders from Fort Knox, Ky., gathered on the post’s parade field last week to celebrate two events — the Greater Fort Knox region being named to the 2018 class of Great American Defense Communities (GADC) and the post’s centennial. ADC board member Bob Ross presented the community with the GADC banner. At the event, more than 1,500 soldiers and 700 civilians formed the words “Fort Knox,” to commemorate a 1918 photo. See then and now photos in the June 2018 issue of America’s Defense Communities Magazine.
The Greater Fort Knox region is one of five communities that make up the 2018 class of GADC, a program recognizing the unique contributions made by communities that host military installations to improve quality of life for service members and their families.
