Service members, leaders, civilians, Families and teammates.

August is antiterrorism month.  

Antiterrorism is the Army’s prevention tool for terrorism, and awareness is the key to preventing terrorist activities.  

Every person is a sensor.   

Please report suspicious activity that you observe using programs like iWatch.

iWatch is a community program to help your neighborhood stay safe from terrorist activities. If you see suspicious activity, do something immediately by calling the FLW Directorate of Emergency Services at 573.596.6141/1.800.CALLSPY or report it online at

Examples of behaviors and activities to report include strangers asking questions about security forces or procedures; a briefcase, suitcase, backpack or package left behind; cars or trucks left in no parking zones in front of important buildings; or intruders in secure areas.

We must remember that terrorist events can happen anywhere, and we must keep a proactive attitude to counter or overcome these actions.

Constant vigilance and timely reporting will go a long way in keeping the Maneuver Support Center of Excellence and Fort Leonard Wood safe.

Thank you for your service and dedication to our great nation.  

Maneuver support starts here.

Army Strong.
