Holiday gate closure

In observance of the Memorial Day holiday, Faulkner and Newton gates will be closed May 26-28. They will resume normal operating hours May 29.

Change of responsibility

The Fort Rucker Garrison will host a change of responsibility ceremony June 15 at 2 p.m. in the U.S. Army Aviation Museum. Command Sgt. Maj. Jasper C. Johnson will assume responsibility from Command Sgt. Maj. Christopher D. Spivey.

Emergency broadcast channel change

The post’s emergency broadcast channel, Channel 6, is now reflected onto Channel 900 for on-post cable outlets. This is due to the new hardware installed by Spectrum for high-definition TV. All channels have been rearranged, including changing Channel 6 to its new location on Channel 900.

Pharmacy change

The Lyster Army Health Clinic Pharmacy no longer accepts drop-off forms for all refill requests. It is mandatory to phone in all prescription refills. Call 1-877-520-1623 or 334-255-7671.

Resiliency Resources

The Lyster and Fort Rucker Resiliency Resources mobile device app is available for free in Android and iPhone mobile app stores. The app can help people find information for Fort Rucker, including addresses, phone numbers and event information, and also information such as where running trails are located, if there is a 5k race coming up, when Bible studies occur and more.

Lost and found

People who have lost or misplaced property while on Fort Rucker can call the Directorate of Public Safety’s lost and found point of contact at 255-3239 to inquire if their property has been turned in. To claim their property, people must be able to demonstrate ownership of the property. DPS retains property found or turned in at special events held on the installation, such as Freedom Fest – the most common items turned-in are keys, cell phones and wallets.

Thrift shop

The Fort Rucker Thrift Shop is open Wednesdays-Fridays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The thrift shop needs people’s unwanted items. People can drop off donations at any time in the shed behind the shop (former Armed Forces Bank building) located in front of the theater next door to the bowling alley. Donations are tax deductible.
