WikiProject Military history/Assessment/Tag & Assess 2008[edit]

Article reassessed and graded as start class. --dashiellx (talk) 18:37, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Information Box Format[edit]

I changed the format of the information box from the previous format to one that has already been established for military installations http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Fort_Leavenworth&diff=222857417&oldid=221952683 The reasoning behind this, Fort Leavenworth is an active U.S. Army installation. The other U.S. Army installations Fort Campbell, Kentucky, Fort Drum, New York, Fort Hood, Texas, Fort Riley, Kansas, Fort Myer, Virginia, Fort Bragg, North Carolina, Schofield Barracks, Hawaii, etc. have the same format and even this installation is a historical post, it is no exception to the rule already established on Wikipedia. -Signaleer (talk) 13:27, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Thank you. The old infobox was spectacularly misleading. I don't believe the whole fort is on NHS. Thanks again. Americasroof (talk) 19:41, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
There are other historical installations like West Point, New York, Fort Monroe, Virginia, Fort Myer, Virginia, Fort Sheridan, Illinois, etc. which are historical installations but the precedence has already been established for the information box format. -Signaleer (talk) 16:04, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Manning Detention[edit]

Didn't want to go ahead and add this but it's been confirmed that this location is where Private Manning will serve up to 35-year prison sentence, as reported in The Kansas City Star Given the media attention this case had garnered it would seem fitting to mention this point on the wiki.
