On June 2, 1917 Congress approved the War Department plan to place a training center near Columbia, S.C., and in 2017 Fort Jackson will commemorate 100 years of “Training the Best Soldiers in the World!”
When we turn 100 on June 2, 2017, Fort Jackson — which began as a World War I training base — will have trained an estimated 5 million soldiers and is now the nation’s largest basic combat training facility.
We will commemorate our 100 year anniversary by celebrating our legacy and the continuous support we receive from the surrounding Midlands Community.
