Flat Stanley visits Fort Campbell, Kentucky

Hello Mrs. Lewis!

This is Stanley reporting back to you from Fort Campbell, KY.  My friend Chloe sent me here to visit her cousin Kylie and I have had a great time!  Fort Campbell is a military base located on the state line dividing Kentucky and Tennessee, however, since the post office happens to be located on the Kentucky side of the base, Kentucky is the official “address”.

The weather here right now is COLD!  There is snow on the ground for winter time, although flowers start peeking through the ground for spring very soon.  Summers are very HOT – sometimes over 100 degrees.  Fall is beautiful with colorful leaves falling from the trees and breezy, cool weather.

Being a military base, there are many different cultures.  Families move in and out of the area often too.  Kylie wanted to make sure I felt right at home while I was visiting, so she made me my very own Army uniform to wear!

She took me to see a memorial on the Army post and we spent time checking out old military aircraft too.  She even let me “fly” an old helicopter!

Next, she took me to meet some HEROES that live at Fort Campbell!  They were very nice soldiers that wanted to meet me and take a picture with me.  I made sure to thank them for volunteering to serve in the military and protect our country too.

Kylie wanted to introduce me to a few of her own favorite people too.  We met the local Girl Scouts selling yummy cookies.  They wanted to meet me too!  We took a picture, donated to help wounded warriors, and I got to pose with a GIANT girlscout “cookie”.

Last, but not least, Kylie gave me my very own “scout” patch for serving at Fort Campbell for the day!


I had a wonderful time visiting with Chloe’s cousin, Kylie and I hope to come back soon!  Maybe next time, I could bring Chloe with me.  I know Kylie would love that the most.

Thank you for letting me explore Fort Campbell, Kentucky!

  1. Thank you for showing us Fort Campbell! It looks like Flat Stanely had fun. We were so surprised to see a woman solider but my teacher explained that men and woman can be in the military. Chloe says hello and thank you and she misses Kylie so much! Love, the students from room 108 at Rosewood Magnet school and Mrs. Lewis 🙂
