Every post has an area for holding prisioners. This is not a prison though. Ft. Knox is a major training base.

That is wrong. there is a prison at ft Knox. It is for soldiers who are sentenced to less than 3 years more than 3 years go to Leavenworth

Correction: I worked there in the 1980's and worked on post in the 1990's.

There was from 1947 to September 2009. Civil affairs often put out disinformation on the prison. It housed inmates with 7 years or less or that had a PTA parole agreement. It was built to house 250 inmates and stayed between 200 to 500 inmates. Many of the inmates had longer sentences at civilian prisons near by to serve. There were also a few terrorist housed there off and on. Until 1969 it housed an electric chair and over 200 army inmates and German war criminals were put to death. In the 1970's a Manson follower was drafted and jailed for attempted murder and wrote "Helter Skelter" on the door of the death chamber after murdering a guard. The writing stayed no matter how they tried to erase it.
