A committee among members in the Navy detachment at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri launched a “change the landscape, change the mindset” campaign to update and upgrade facilities the Navy controls at the installation, according to a DOD news story. “One of the things we are focused on here is changing the landscape to instill pride and professionalism within our walls, so you have that sense of belonging, something you want to be a part of,” said Lt. Joshua Lamb, who took over control of the Navy detachment in May. “That bleeds over into our trainees who come through here.”
