Officers must receive written permission to report to Fort Leavenworth prior to the NLT reporting date (8 -10 July 2018) on your PCS orders. To request early reporting, you must submit a written request (via email) to the Combined Arms Center and Fort Leavenworth Officer Strength Management Section, at usarmy.leavenworth.cac.mbx.smd@mail.mil, along with a courtesy copy to your branch. Phone: 913-684-2005.

Requests must include the following information: Name, Rank, Branch, SSN, class date, requested report date, current duty station and mailing address, DEROS (if applicable), current phone number and rationale for requesting early report.

To ensure a prompt response, be sure to include your complete e-mail address and commercial telephone number with each inquiry.

Each request is evaluated on an individual basis. Requests to establish housing early will be denied. Those coming from ACS, early CoC and/or with a pregnant spouse, i.e. will be highly considered.
