United States Disciplinary Barracks
Fort Leavenworth, Kansas

The USDB, originally designated the U.S. Military Prison, was established by Congress in 1974 and has been in operation at Fort Leavenworth since May 15, 1875. This military prison has the distinction of offering the first vocational training program established in this country for prisoners. The USDB is the only maximum-security prison in the Department of Defense, incarcerating personnel, both men and women, from all branches of service.

A new Disciplinary Barracks will be built at Fort Leavenworth with completion expected by the year 2000. The new 510-bed facility will be considerably smaller than the present, which houses more than 1,000 inmates.
