ORT KNOX, Kentucky . . . the Home of Armor,
and site of the U. S. Bullion Depository, was tirst
established in 1918 as Camp Henry Knox in honor of
Maior General Henry Knox, Chiet of Field Artillery from
1775 to 1782, Chief of Stat? of the Army from 1782 to
1783 and Secretary of War from 1785 to 1794.
From 1922 to 1932 Camp Knox served as a summer
training camp for units of the Fifth Corps Area. In 1932
Camp Knox was designated Fort Knox, a permanent
military establishment. Since that time it has been con-
sidered the home of United States Armor.
In 1935 the Treasury Department established the
Bullion Depository at Fort Knox. Not generally known,
however, is the fact that the Gold Vault was used as a

HE CONTINUAL expansion and improvement of
armor training at Fort Knox since pre-World War
ll days has made it possible to keep thousands of men
prepared for combat in the event ot armed aggression.
Organized armor training at Fort Knox had its inception
on October 1, 1940, with the establishment ot the Armored
Fiorce School and Replacement Training Center. Although
the Armored Force School soon became a separate organ-
ization, the Replacement Training Center continued to train
new enlisted men until 1947.
On July 14, 1957, the Third Armored Division was reac-
tivated and assumed the duties of the Replacement Training
Center as a training division. The Third retained this mission
until March, 1955, when it again became a tactical division
and was assigned to European duty.
The Armored Replacement Training Center superseded the
Third Armored Division on March 15, 1955. ln October of
that year the training at six-month Reserve Forces Act volun-
teers began. More than 26,000 soldier passed through initial
training courses at the ARTC during its first year of existence.
ln 1956 the ARTC was designated as the United States
Army Training Center, Armor. Today USATC Armor is com-
prised of two armor training regiments, two basic combat
training regiments and a specialist training regiment.
lnstruction is given in Basic Combat Training, Advanced
Individual Training, Armor, Basic Unit Armor Training and
Specialist Training. Specialist schools are provided for inter-
mediate speed radio operators, general clerks and clerk-
typists, automotive maintenance workers, general supply
clerks and parts supply clerks.
USATC Armor comprises approximately half ot the popu-
, , A. f .Jan
Q .,.s. T
lation of Fort Knox. ln addition to RFA volunteers, enlisted
men now assigned to the Training Center include Regular
Army Enlistees, lnductees and Enlisted Reservists.
Larger than any Fort Knox training center of the past,
USATC Armor now has facilities capable of processing more
than 15,000 trainees at one time.

Fort Knox, Kentucky
T0 THE GRADUATES OF BASIC TRAINING
In this era of nuclear weapons, rockets, guided missiles and other
modern tools of warfare, the most important element of National Defense
remains the man who employs these tools. Man's natural habitat is the earth
and in war he must eventually defeat his enemies by struggle on the
ground. Hence the necessity for well-trained soldiers of the United
States Army. V
In combat the soldier faces many unnatural, difficult and trying
situations. lt is, therefore, essential that every man be thoroughly
disciplined, technically qualified, and physically, morally, and mentally
conditioned to survive on the modern battlefield. This has been the
purpose of the military training you have received
will TSCSIVB In the fl1TA1I'9.
here at USATCA and
How much benefit you receive from any training, of course, depends
to a considerable degree on how much you put into it. Here at the U.S.
Army Training Center, Armor, your training has been a well-rounded
program designed to provide you with every opportunity to develop the
attributes of a good soldier. We feel, too, that in many ways you have
developed a greater sense of responsibility and a greater awareness of
the world around you and, therefore, have become a better citizen of
this great country of ours.
It is hoped that this book in the years to come will serve as a
pleasant reminder to you of this brief period of your military service
in USATCA, of the truth that soldiers are made, not born, and of your
continuing duty to insure that the defense structure of this country
is always maintained at the highest degree of readiness. '

Dear Lord, who hearest each soldier's prayer,
I look to Thee in humble faith,
Asking Thee to guide me, mind and body,
That I may honor Thee throughout my military service.
Should the way be difficult,
Teach me to use the reserves of strength and endurance
With which Thou hast endowed me.
Keep me aware of those beside me
Who may need my helping hand or my friendly counsel.
Should I be lonely or in distress,
Let me remember that man grows in stature
As he sacrifices for his loved ones and his country,
That they may not fall under the dominion of those who
deny and despise Thy laws.
As I grow in physical power and stamina,
May I also increase in vigor of mind and force of
And come to know more fully the measure of my
Grant that I may become a soldier and a citizen
Whose knowledge, understanding and skill
Will enable me to play my full part in keeping
strong and secure.
Give me the wisdom to spend my leisure hours
To choose my friends carefully,
And to lead a life that is morally upright,
May my faith in Thee and my habits of worship
Serve to guide me daily
Toward a mark worthy of emulation.
Enkindle in my heart a desire to excel
And to reiect all temptations to be careless or
May I make a record deserving of my nation's trust,
Deeply satisfying to me and to all men,
And ever pleasing to Thee.

One of the greatest opportunities that comes
with Modern Army Green is the chance for each
soldier to become a skilled expert in his field
through Army job training.
Some of the men in this class will be sent to
Army schools, where over l50 combat, technical
and administrative courses are taught-M
everything from missiles to medicine. These
Army students will get top professional
training, learn by using the most modern
equipment, the best facilities in the world.
Other men will find they can learn their job best
through on-the-job training. In this case, they
will learn by doing, supervised by experts who
know the requirements of the job from
the ground up.
Whatever his job assignment and whatever type
of training he receives, every man in this class
will become a specialist at his duties, with the
skill that assures a job well done.
X. rnutfw 'Z
In addition to job training, the modern Army otlers
each man the opportunity to pursue his formal
education. The United States Armed Forces Institute
conducts the largest correspondence school in the World
and has helped thousands upon thousands ot' soldiers
to get their high school diplomas.
The Army has also arranged with many civilian schools
and colleges to permit soldiers to attend courses in
their off-duty hours. Under the Tuition Assistance
Program, an ambitious soldier can get a college degree.
What's more, there are Education Centers in hundreds
of Army posts which daily teach subjects the soldiers
themselves have asked for. The modern Army has
found that the greater an education a soldier has, the
greater contribution he makes to the Army itself. This
is why the man in Modern Army Green is urged to
carry his education forward as far as possible.

Modern Army Green is recognized the world over,
and travel opportunities in the modern Army provide
a valuable education in themselves. Assignments in
various parts of the United States enable a soldier to
understand his American heritage. But, beyond that,
most soldiers have the chance for an overseas
assignment. These foreign tours not only
provide the fun and thrills of
adventure in exciting foreign lands
. . . but in traveling and
ways of life a soldier
will find new meaning
in his own.

Every soldier grows in the Army
. . . grows not just physically but
grows into a new maturity. The
spiritual and moral growth of its
men is of the utmost importance to
the Army. The opportunity for a
soldier to worship in his own
religious faith is a fundamental
part of Army life.

Besides the active programs
conducted by Protestant, Catholic
and Jewish chaplains, each stands
ready to counsel any soldier on
his religious or personal problems.
Army discipline has its basis in
self-control, self-respect, self-
reliance, honor and honesty. This
discipline creates clean-minded,
clean-living soldiers who are aware
of the responsibilities of good
citizenship. The man in Modern
Army Green is a credit to
MAKING TIME THRUUGH
lt is hoped that every man in Modern Army Green will climb up
the leadership ladder. While every soldier cannot become an
olhcer, each man has an equal chance and each is given promotions
as they are merited. The Army's Oflicer Candidate Courses are
always open to properly qualified enlisted men. As each soldier
becomes capable of handling greater and greater responsibility, his
self-confidence increases and so does his stature as a leader.
