Long Description:
From Travel Kansas website: (visit link)

"When visitors arrive at the entrance to Fort Leavenworth, it typically takes about 5 minutes to get a visitor's pass. The army requires photo ID, car registration and proof of insurance. They will inform you of any restrictions to where you may go on the Fort. Only US residents are permitted to tour Fort Leavenworth."

The D-Day Commemorative tree is directly in front of the Frontier Army Museum. It is marked by a subtle concrete marker with a small bronze plaque along Reynolds Avenue.

The plaque reads as follows:
