    Establishing a continuing liaison between the military and civilian communities by exchanging information and creating a feeling of  mutual understanding and congeniality through social interactivity.  

    History
    Founded in 1991, the Lady Troopers Organization is a partner to the Old Trooper Regiment, Inc., made up of women in the Junction City area.  Our goal is to provide friendship, support, and goodwill for the military families of Fort Riley.

    We offer communication and support assistance to the wives of commanding officers at Fort Riley.  By doing this, it allows the wives to make that information available to the families within the commands.  We offer information about shopping, schools, churches, activities and events, and anything else that may be helpful.

    The Lady Troopers also host 'Canteen' events for deployments and redeployments at Fort Riley.  Lady Troopers are ready night or day, laden with homemade goodies and kind words to help send or welcome back our brave men and women from deployments to world-wide destinations. 

    For or more information or to join the Lady Troopers of Junction City, please contact Alice Stuckey at (785) 209-0415, email alicestuckey@embarqmail.com or Joyce Thomas at (785) 209-1202, email joyceannethomas@gmail.com. 

    Annual membership cost is $50.00.

    Mission

     

    To welcome and assist Fort Riley Soldiers & their families during their stay at Fort Riley.    

     

    History

     

    Junction City was formed in 1859 to serve Fort Riley soldiers and their families’ needs and this is still true today. Over the years, Junction City has always enjoyed its special relationship with the military and its families and has strived to make our military friends’ stay at Ft. Riley enjoyable and successful. Back in the 20s, perhaps after a friendly polo game between town leaders and Fort Riley officers, the 'townies' started calling themselves the Old Trooper Regiment (OTR). They continued hosting social events to keep their relationships strong. In the 60s, OTR became more formal by becoming a part of the Junction City Chamber of Commerce, then part of the Geary County Economic Development agency.

    Eventually OTR went back to being an independent organization when it merged with another Fort Riley support group,- Kansans for a Strong Fort Riley. While remaining an independent organization, OTR became a founding member with the city and county of the Junction City - Geary County Military Affairs Council, serving as a one stop shop for Fort Riley's needs.

    OTR's partner spouse's organization, the Lady Troopers, also plays a huge part in making military spouses feel welcome at Fort Riley, and it provides a valuable source of information to help military families.
