Army Recruiting and Retention School Opening at Fort Knox

Feb 10, 2015

The move of the Army's Recruiting and Retention School from Fort Jackson, South Carolina, to Fort Knox, Kentucky, is complete, and the Army is celebrating.

A ribbon-cutting and grand opening is set for 4:30 p.m. EST Wednesday at Fort Knox.

The school had been at Fort Jackson since 1995. The transition began in June.

The Army says almost 100 personnel relocated.

About 3,500 students are expected to attend each year. The school trains noncommissioned officers to be recruiters as well as leaders within U.S. Army Recruiting Command, which is also located at Fort Knox. Ten difference courses are taught at the school.

The relocation is part of integrated force structure changes that support recruiting for the Army of 2025. The move is estimated to save $14 million a year.
