Fort Gordon is a United States Army Installation and 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. The main componment of the post is the Advanced Individual Training for Signal Corps military occupational specialites. In 1966-68 the Army’s Signal Officer Candidate School (located at Fort Monmouth during World War II and the Korean conflict) graduated over 2,200 Signal officers. Fort Gordon trains more military personnel than any other training center of the U.S. Army.
Increasingly, military signals intelligence has become more visible and comprises more and more of the fort’s duties.
Fort Gordon and the Signal Center is commanded by Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Foley. On July 17, 2007, Brig. Gen. Randolph Strong handed over command as he assumed a new position as Director of Architecture, Operations, Networks, and Space, in the Department of the Army’s Office of the Chief Information Officer and G6. Brig. Gen. Foley last served as Director of Architecture, Operations, Networks, and Space, in the Department of the Army’s Office of the Chief Information Officer and G6.
