History

Ft Gordon Our Military History

Camp Gordon, named for Confederate Lt. Gen. John Brown Gordon, was activated for infantry and armor training during World War II. During the war, its 55,000 acres served as a divisional training base for the 4th and 26th infantry divisions and the 10th Armored Division that fought in Europe in Gen. George S. Patton’s Third Army.

After World War II, more than 85,000 officers and enlisted personnel were discharged from Camp Gordon’s Army Personnel Center. Other facilities included a U.S. disciplinary barracks and, beginning in 1943, a prisoner of war camp for German and Italian World War II captives.

Camp Gordon, almost deserted after June 1948, came to life in September 1948 with the establishment of the Signal Corps Training Center. The post’s training mission grew with the addition of the Military Police School in September 1948 and the activation of the Engineer Aviation Unit Training Center in January 1949 (the latter remained at Camp Gordon for only one year).

The Korean conflict again placed Camp Gordon center stage in preparing soldiers for combat. In addition to communications personnel at the Signal Training Center’s Signal Corps Replacement Training Center and Signal Unit Training Group, military police trained for combat assignments while the 51st Anti-Aircraft Artillery Brigade formed three detachments before moving to Camp Stewart, Georgia. In 1950, the installation became the site for military government training for the Army. Also during the decade, Camp Gordon was home to the only Army Criminal Investigation Laboratory in the continental United States as well as a rehabilitation training center and a U.S. disciplinary barracks. In 1953, the Basic Replacement Training Center and the Advanced Leader’s School provided basic training and advanced leadership training (both were inactivated in 1955). The Civil Affairs School arrived in 1955 as part of the Civil Affairs and Military Government School. Camp Gordon, becoming a permanent Army installation March 21, 1956, was redesignated Fort Gordon. The U.S. Army Training Center (Basic) was activated here in 1957.

During the Vietnam War, infantry, military police and signal soldiers trained at Fort Gordon. While Signal Corps training continued to expand throughout the 1960s, other activities ceased through postwar deactivations and the Military Police School’s move to Fort McClellan, Alabama. In June 1962, all activities of the Signal Corps Training Center were reorganized under the U.S. Army Southeastern Signal School. Designating the installation the U.S. Army Signal Center and Fort Gordon, the Army consolidated all communications training at Fort Gordon on Oct. 1, 1974. The arrival of the Army’s Computer Science School was only part of the impetus for the fort’s tremendous growth during the 1980s. The following decade found its Mobilization Command deploying numerous troops to southwest Asia during Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm (1990-1991).

Today, Fort Gordon is home of the U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence and figures prominently in post-Cold War national defense.

Organizations

Ft Gordon Our Military Organizations

U.S. ARMY CYBER CENTER OF EXCELLENCE

The Cyber Center of Excellence is the U.S. Army’s force modernization proponent for cyberspace operations; signal/communications networks and information services; and electronic warfare. It is responsible for developing related doctrine, organizational, training, materiel, leadership and education, personnel and facility solutions. A major aspect of the center’s mission is the training, education and development of world-class, highly skilled signal, cyber and electronic warfare professionals supporting operations at the strategic, operational and tactical level. Today’s broad and rapidly changing global operational environment means the DOD and the nation are required to function within an increasingly competitive, congested and contested cyberspace and electromagnetic spectrum. Ultimately, the center must enable the commanders and leaders to seize, retain and exploit freedom of action in both the land and cyberspace domains, while simultaneously denying and degrading the adversary use of the same.

7TH SIGNAL COMMAND (THEATER)

The 7th Signal Command was activated at Fort Gordon in July 2008. The command is responsible for the integration, security and defense of the Army LandWarNet within the continental U.S. The command is designed to extend LandWarNet capabilities to generating and operating forces in support of CONUS-based information-enabled expeditionary operations.

15TH REGIMENTAL SIGNAL BRIGADE

Training is the primary mission of the 15th Regimental Signal Brigade. The mission is as diverse as the personnel who train therein and the equipment that they learn to install, operate and maintain.

359TH SIGNAL BRIGADE

The 359th Theater Tactical Signal Brigade exercises command and control over Army Reserve soldiers in six states. The brigade has a distinguished history dating to 1944 when it served admirably in Brazil and was decorated with the Meritorious Unit Commendation Award for its accomplishments.

The group also conducts Air Force National Tactical Integration and Tactics Analysis Studies Element missions for the 609th Air and Space Operations Center. The group is the Air Force component of the National Security Agency/Central Security Service – Georgia.

NAVY INFORMATION OPERATIONS COMMAND, GEORGIA

Navy Information Operations Command, Georgia was originally commissioned as Naval Security Group Activity, Fort Gordon. This organization was commissioned Nov. 1, 1995, at Fort Gordon to perform Naval Security Group-related functions. Specifically, it provided operational cryptologic personnel to support the Fort Gordon Regional Security Operations Center. In summer 2005, the security operations center was renamed the National Security Agency/Central Security Service — Georgia. National Security Agency/Central Security Service — Georgia serves as a joint service facility established by the director of the National Security Agency to conduct continuous security operations in support of national and warfighter intelligence requirements.

General Information 706-787-5811
Appointments 706-787-7300
Pharmacy 706-787-8033

http://eisenhower.amedd.army.mil

The Eisenhower Army Medical Center provides health care services to military members and their families at Fort Gordon, as well as retirees and veterans of the armed forces. The center provides a wealth of medical services, including behavioral health care, cardiology, dentistry, emergency care, flight medicine, general surgery, intensive care, OB-GYN care, physical therapy, primary care, radiology and more.

Active-duty military may call for appointments 6 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. TRICARE Prime patients may call for appointments 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Family members of active-duty personnel are encouraged to use the TRICARE Dental Program. Information about the TRICARE Dental Program can be obtained by calling 855-638-8371 or visiting www.tricare.mil/CoveredServices/Dental/TDP.aspx.

TRICARE

TRICARE is the health care program for active duty and retirees of the uniformed services, their families and survivors. TRICARE’s primary objectives are to optimize the delivery of health care services in the military’s direct care system for all military health system beneficiaries and attain the highest level of patient satisfaction through the delivery of a world-class health care benefit.

TRICARE coverage is completely portable so it moves with you when you relocate. The TRICARE Prime options include TRICARE Prime and TRICARE Prime Remote in the United States, and TRICARE Prime Overseas and TRICARE Global Remote Overseas in regions outside of the United States.

Follow these simple steps to ensure you have no break in coverage when you move:

  • Do not cancel your TRICARE Prime enrollment option before you move.
  • Update your personal information in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) immediately when you arrive at your new location.
  • Select a new primary care manager (PCM) when moving within the same region, or submit a new Prime enrollment form within 30 days if you’re moving to a new region.

Where you are moving will determine which Prime option you will enroll in. If you move to a new Prime service area, transfer your enrollment by submitting a TRICARE Prime Enrollment and PCM Change Form to your regional contractor. Be sure to include all family members who wish to use Prime on the form.

TRICARE Standard and Extra are available to family members only. Active-duty service members are required to enroll in one of the Prime options. TRICARE Standard and Extra are available throughout the United States, and enrollment is not required. Any active-duty family member who is registered in DEERS may use these programs by seeing any network or non-network provider that is authorized by TRICARE.

If you’re already using TRICARE Standard and Extra, moving is easy. When you arrive at your new location, update your personal information in DEERS immediately. Then find TRICARE-authorized providers in your new area.

Here are a few things to remember about using TRICARE Standard and Extra in a new region:

  • In the U.S., visit your new regional contractor’s website for a list of providers. Remember, if you see network providers, you’ll be using the Extra option and pay lower copayments.
  • If you move to a new region, you’ll have a new claims address for submitting your TRICARE claims.
  • Learn your new region’s prior authorization requirements as these requirements may differ by region.
