Entering the Post

Anyone entering Fort McPherson and Fort Gillem should be prepared to show a military-issued identification card.  Anyone entering either post also should be prepared to have their vehicle inspected as they enter the installations -- a process that may greatly increase the amount of time necessary to get on post.
