“Supporting Victory through Excellence”

Fort Jackson is the largest and most active Initial Entry Training Center in the U.S. Army, training 50 percent of all Soldiers and 60 percent of the women entering the Army each year. Providing the Army with trained, disciplined, motivated and physically fit warriors who espouse the Army’s core values and are focused on teamwork is the post’s primary mission.
The Fort Jackson Garrison is commanded by an Army colonel, and is under the command and control of the U.S. Army Installation Management Agency – Southeast Region, which was formerly located at Fort McPherson (Atlanta), Ga.
Fort Jackson’s installation support functions are provided by the United States Army Garrison and like all Army installations operate under the direction of the Installation Management Command. The Garrison commander reports to the director, Southeast Region, Installation Management Command and the commanding general in his role as installation commander. The installation has a wide range of support directorates and activities with the mission of supporting the community’s objectives.
