U.S. Army Garrison Fort Polk is in beautiful west-central Louisiana and is the home of the Joint Readiness Training Center. Fort Polk’s mission is to provide installation support for power projection, combat readiness and mission execution for all tenant units as well as JRTC rotational units. The post also provides quality services and facilities, all the while optimizing resources, sustaining the environment and enhancing the overall well-being of the Fort Polk community.

In addition to training over half of the brigade combat teams that have deployed to theater, Fort Polk hosts the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division; 5th Aviation Battalion; 46th Engineer Battalion; and 519th Military Police Battalion.
