Victory Starts Here!
Fort Jackson plays a major role in shaping today’s U.S. Army by training more than half of tomorrow’s disciplined, well-trained, professional Soldiers. With an ideal climate for year-round training, more than 60,000 Initial Entry Training Soldiers are trained here each year.
The first stop on the road to becoming a Soldier is the 120th Adjutant General Battalion (Reception). This complex receives new Soldiers at any time of day or night and has the facilities to feed, house, administratively process and properly outfit the men and women beginning Army service.
