The United States Army Training Center, Field Artil-
lery, at Fort Chaffee is the only post so designated in the
U.S. Army. Its mission is to give basic artillery training,
as well as basic training, to inductees and new enlistees.
The field artillery has been an integral part of the
United States Army throughout its history. Since George
Washington's time, when lack of adequate cannon cost
our forefathers heavily, the mission of the artillery is to
provide close and continuous support for ground-gaining
arms, and to give "depth" to combat.
The artillery works closely with infantry and armored
units, supporting these branches with heavy firepower
in both short and long range operations. Each armored
and infantry division has within it sufficient artillery to
provide it with its heavy firepower.
In its support mission, artillery provides a fire "cover"
for advancing units, pinning down enemy positions with
bombardment so their retaliatory fire is reduced.
In its depth mission, artillery harasses enemy positions
not reachable by small arms fire, extending the sphere
of action far beyond the relatively small front-line zone.
The artillery's armament today, including rockets, mis-
siles and the atomic cannon, as well as more conventional
weapons, is the most powerful the world has knwon.
The first artillery training school was established at
Fortress Monroe, Va., in 1824, one of the first of the Army
schools. The Artillery School and Guided Missile Center
presently is located at Fort Sill, Okla.
The insignia of the field artillery is crossed cannons.
Artillery braid for garrison caps and other uniform wear
From the "gun-pointers," "bombardiers" and "mat-
trosses" of the Revolutionary War to the forward observ-
ers, FDG men and cannoneers of today, the field artillery
consistently has been a bulwark of U.S. Army strength.

Fort Chaffee, created to accommodate part of the greatly
expanded Army at the beginning of World War II, was
named for Major General Adna R. Chaffee, first chief
of the U.S. Armored Force.
Construction of the 73,000-acre post was begun in
September, 1941. Most of the original buildings, con-
structed of wood on concrete foundations, are still in
The post operated as a training center from 1941 -to
1944, then became a personnel center until it was 1n-
activated in 1946.
Chaffee was reactivated in 1948 as the home of the 5th
Armored Division, with the mission of processing members
of all services, giving short basic training to former Navy
and Coast Guard personnel, and giving regular basic
training to newly-enlisted and inducted Army personnel.
The post was placed on standby status briefly in 1950,
and was restored as a regular training base in September
of that year.
The 5th Armored Division was inactivated in March,
1956, and Chaffee was re-designated the United States
Army Training Center, Field Artillery. The post was
given permanent status by the Department of Army in
March, 1956, and its title changed from Camp Chaffee
to Fort Chaffee.
Chaffee lies about eight miles southeast of Fort Smith,
Ark., a city of 56,000 population on the Oklahoma border.
The post is approximately 135 miles by highway from
Tulsa, Okla., and Hot Springs, Ark., 160 miles from Little
Rock, Ark., and 195 miles from Oklahoma City.
Approximately 80 miles due south of the Missouri line.,
Chaffee is situated in the picturesque Ozark Mountain
region, with many points of scenic and historic interest
The post has almost perfect climatic conditions for
training purposes. The area has mild winters, hot summers
and no fog. A sensible summer training program, in which
uniform and training regulations are relaxed to permit
maximum comfort, minimizes heat effects on trainees.

The job of teaching men
how to become artillery men
is far tougher than simply
telling them how to toss a
shell into a field piece and
pulling a lanyard to fire it.
Today,s artillery weapons
are intricate firing mechan-
isms, capable of pouring out
thousands of rounds of ac-
curately placed barrages --
providing, and ONLY pro-
viding that the men serving
the piece and operating the
fire direction center have
mastered their jobs.
To instruct trainees in
proper use of the sighting
mechanisms and other in-
struments of fire control,
cadremen employ long hours
of patient instruction, begin-
ning in classroom and, later,
in the field.

as a career
if' sf 4'
A full-time soldier has the satisfaction of serving
the defense and welfare of his country, knowing
his job is secure as long as he does his job well.
Steady income, advancement in rank, annual leaves
with pay, health and family benefits, plus a co-
ordinated retirement plan are a few of the ad-
vantages automatically enjoyed with a service
The United States Army has continually made
available every advantage that will induce physical
and mental development of an individual, which en-
hances his realization of better living . . . for him-
self, his community and his country. The Army
provides schools for specialist training in all phases
of its operation. In addition to the educational
values these various academic centers afford, the
career soldier will have opportunities to broaden
this academic study with firsbhand visits to many
interesting countries of the world.
These advantages are a privilege of an Army
career. No other business or organization in the
world today can offer the freedom and broad scope
of choices in selection of a secure future . . . a
career in which to grow and develop for a personal
fulfillment .of better living among free people.
future ancl education
with YCUR ARMY
The Army wants men who can use their heads as well as
their hands. Because of this, it encourages ambitious soldiers
to continue their schooling while on active duty. To help them
do this, the Army has set up an extensive Troop lnformation
and Education Program. Soldiers who continue their education
while in the Army find themselves better prepared for civilian
life when they return to it.
Most of us know something about the education benefits
of the Cl Bills which were a great boon to the veterans of
World War ll and of Korea who returned to school after their
period of service. Few people, however, are aware of the edu-
cational opportunities that are found within the Army today.
A soldier can go to school while in the Army and prepare him-
self to receive an eighth grade certificate from the Army, a
high school diploma or high school equivalency certificate
from his home State, or even a degree from an American
college. Besides this, there are many useful vocational and
technical courses open to him.

The Army will assist all personnel, enlisted men and
officers, in the payment of tuition to the amount of 75
percent, up to a maximum of 57.50 for each hour or point
credit taken. Thus, a soldier taking 6 hours of college work
at a cost of S12 an hour will have a total tuition of 5572.
The Army will pay 3545 1357.50 x 6 hoursl, and the student
must pay the balance of 3527 and purchase textbooks and
special materials from his own personal funds. Many
schools will allow him to pay his part of the tuition on an

and what they teach
Army schools teach more different kinds of subjects than perhaps any other single school, college,
or university in the world. There's a 300-page Army School Catalog lllepartment of the Army Pamphlet
20-2U which lists and briefly describes allnof the school courses. You will not get all of that information
in these few pages. However, here's a partial listing of the great variety of general fields of study which
you will find in Army schools:
