Road Trip: Fort Gordon, Georgia

Fort Gordon, formerly known as Camp Gordon, is a United States Army installation established in 1917. It is the current home of the United States Army Signal Corps and Signal Center and was once the home of "The Provost Marshal General School" (Military Police). The fort is located in Richmond, Jefferson, McDuffie, and Columbia counties, Georgia.

Fort Gordon's technical name is the U.S. Army Signal Center & Fort Gordon, or USASCFG. While the TRADOC school itself is the primary function, the post is home to the following active-duty tenant units:

15th Regimental Signal Brigade, home to the 73d Ordnance (TRADOC), 369th Signal (TRADOC), 447th Signal (TRADOC) and 551st Signal Battalions.

35th Signal Brigade, home to the 63d Expeditionary Signal Battalion, 67th and 50th Signal Battalion. 50th Signal Battalion is current on detached duty to Fort Bragg, NC (formerly the 93rd Signal Brigade)

513th Military Intelligence Brigade, home to Task Force Lightning and the 202nd and 297th MI Battalions
35th Military Police Detachment
706th Military Intelligence Group, home of the 707th MI Battalion



The post also hosts a joint-service command, National Security Agency/Central Security Service Georgia, formerly known as the Gordon Regional Security Operations Center. It is a SIGINT collection center for a geographic area including the Middle East.

The Army's 706th MI Group works there alongside units from the Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Agency, Naval Network Warfare Command (Navy Information Operations Command, Georgia, Marine Corps Intelligence Activity as well as civilians from the National Security Agency (NSA).



Considered a mission partner on Fort Gordon is the Dwight D. Eisenhower Army Medical Center (DDEAMC), home of the Southeast Regional Medical Command (SERMC) as well as a dental laboratory. The facility treats active duty military and their families, as well as many of the military retiree community in the Central Savannah River Area. Under SERMC, the hospital is responsible for military hospital care from Kentucky to Puerto Rico.

God knew what he was doing. He plotted your life just as it should be...even when you decided to take a different path at the fork.

Doing good. Glad it’s finally warming up over here. I was beginning to think I was living in Washington state with all the rain.

Working on moving to AFN and getting back on the air more often.

They are picking up German but none of us are fluent yet.

I've wanted to...but there haven't been any stories to do from this unit lately.

It gets hot here...relatively speaking...most days in the upper 80s’s in the summer with a few days into the 90’s.

But right now we're in the coldest summer in 200 years according to the Germans.
