About The Gold Standard


The Gold Standard is an authorized publication for members of the U.S. Army. Contents of The Gold Standard are not necessarily official views of, or endorsed by, the U.S. Government, Department of Defense, Department of the Army, and Fort Knox. It is published each Thursday by the Fort Knox Public Affairs Office under guidelines found in AR 360-1.

Everything advertised in this publication shall be made available for purchase, use, or patronage without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, marital status, physical handicap, political affiliation, or any other non-merit factor of the purchaser, user, or patron. If a violation or rejection of this equal opportunity policy by an advertiser is confirmed, the printer shall refuse to print advertising from that source until the violation is corrected.

The editorial content of this publication is prepared, edited, provided by, and is the responsibility of the Fort Knox Public Affairs office. The Gold Standard is printed using offset presses by the Elizabethtown News-Enterprise, a private firm in no way connected with the Department of the Army, under exclusive written contract with Fort Knox. The civilian printer is responsible for commercial advertising.

The appearance of advertising in this publication, including inserts or supplements, does not constitute endorsement by the Department of the Army or the Elizabethtown News-Enterprise of the products or services advertised.
