August marks the eighth annual observance of Antiterrorism Awareness Month — a time that we remind every member of our “Team of Teams” to remain vigilant of the threats our nation faces.

We encourage our community to focus on antiterrorism training and information sharing regarding topics such as countering insider threats, detecting and reporting suspicious activity, and the risks associated with the use of social media.

We can all educate ourselves through Army OneSource, the Army Policing Portal, and the Antiterrorism Enterprise Portal (ATEP).

Remaining observant to terrorist threats and applying protective  measures are critical to the United States Army’s antiterrorism campaign and initiatives, and the hallmark of the Army’s defense.

Everyone in the community is a  sensor for reporting suspicious activity.

If you see something, say something by calling the Fort Leonard Wood Directorate of Emergency Services at 573.596.6141 or by reporting through iWatch at

Indicators of suspicious activity include: drawing, measuring or taking pictures of important buildings; acquiring official uniforms, badges, decals, passes or items granting access to restricted areas; eliciting security procedures, vulnerabilities and facility operations; and leaving packages, bags or cases unattended in public areas.

Remember that antiterrorism awareness and measures help protect Fort Leonard Wood.

You are our first line of defense in reporting, and we are proud to serve with you. Victory starts here, victory through skill.
