Welcome to the U.S. Army Fort Gordon Garrison and the Central Savannah River Area! As the Army’s model installation for the 21st century, Fort Gordon is dedicated to increasing its own Army community’s involvement and the local civilian community’s involvement in day-to-day support management operations.
Leading the way into the 21st century, Fort Gordon is transforming from an isolated Army installation into an integrated community in the Augusta area.
Fort Gordon is extremely proud of its successful community partnerships that support the mission and complement the installation management action plan.
The Fort Gordon Installation
The installation is home to the U.S. Army Signal Regiment and host to a multi service community of Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and multinational forces.
Fort Gordon is fast becoming a center for joint forces activities, training and operations. Fort Gordon is a major employer in east Georgia. With a work force of 15,717 military and 7,112 civilians, much of the installation’s annual economic impact of nearly $1.4 billion goes directly into area shops, real estate, banks and other businesses.
Fort Gordon and the Central Savannah River Area are valued neighbors, trusted community partners and recognized leaders in city management and public administration, continuously improving both communities with quality facilities and excellent services. Fort Gordon has met the challenge of change by becoming a proactive and diverse community that welcomes partnerships in its innovative approaches to installation management. By sharing together, everyone benefits by making Fort Gordon and the local communities into one integrated, cooperative and caring community.
Whether you have come to Fort Gordon to learn, to teach, to live or to work as a member of the Army, Navy, Air Force or Marines, as a mission partner or to provide the vast support necessary to maintain a military post of this size, you will be a vital part of the “Home of the Signal Regiment” and a valued member of the Central Savannah River Area community.
