Fort Jackson, South Carolina
TRAINING CENTER ,
UNITED STATES ARMY
Fort jackson, one of the United States Armys larger military reservations, is conven-
iently situated just outside the city limits and five miles east of the business district of
Columbia, the capital site of South Carolina. Columbia, a busy progressive city, of 110,000
population, offers the soldier numerous places of interest, entertainment, education and
This 56,000-acre Post, located in the
heart of the "Palmetto', State, was named
in honor of Andrew jackson, born in
New Lancaster, South Carolina, a Major
General of the Army who distinguished
himself as a hero in 1814 at New Orleans
and who later became the Nation's
Originally, this lost, terrained with
tall-pine forests and several picturesque
lakes, a s p o r t s m a n ' s paradise, was
founded and opened as Camp jackson with formal Congressional approval in june, 1917.
A year later, 45,000 oiiieers and enlisted men under the banners of the 30th and 81st Divi-
sions were trained here as XVorld War I troops to he sent to Europe to holster General
Pershings American Expeditionary Forces. 'After the 1918 armistice. the general demohili-
zation of the Army took place and in 1921 the need for the Camp a full-time Regular
Army garrison was ended. However, during the period 1925-1940 it was State-controlled as
an encampment area for the State National Guard Troops.
In 1940, the Camp, primarily designated as an Infantry
training post. reverted to federal control and became
Fort jackson, a permanent-type Army installation. On
july 1 of that year, the Sth Infantry Division was acti-
vated here and later in the same year the 30th "Old Hick-
ory" Division, also named in honor of Andrew Jackson,
moved in. A 32,500,000 program of permanent-type
building construction was started. A S500,000 small-
arms range with 400 targets was placed into operation.
More than one hundred miles of hard-surfaced roads
were constructed and appropriately named for South
Carolina Revolutionary and Civil war heroes.
Carolina maneuvers in 1941, which saw an additional
200,000 acres of land in 16 North and South Carolina
counties requisitioned for training areas, found divisions
including the Ist and 2nd Armored Division, 9th, 29th,
31st, 32nd, 43rd, 44th Infantry Divisions being moulded
as fighting teams.
In March, 1941, the late President Franklin D. Roose-
velt was an honored guest here and in june, 1942, Win-
ston Churchill, then Prime Minister of Great Britain,
attended an impressive demonstration at the fort.
Several divisions, some destined to be famous in World
War II, trained here for their subsequent roles as combat
divisions in Europe and the Pacific. Included in this saga
of jackson "fostered, divisions were the 4th, 6th, 8th,
26th, 30th, 77th, 87th, 100th, and the 106th. Also, troops
of the I and XII Corps trained here. It is estimated that
more than 500,000 American fighting men received some
phase of XVorld VVar II training at Fort jackson.
The Army Service Forces Personnel Replacement Depot
was located here in May, 1945. Fort Iackson became a
Replacement Training Center November, 1946, and in
june, 1947, it was designated as one of the four perma-
nent replacement training centers in the United States.
The famous 5th Infantry Division was subsequently re-
activated on the Post as a training organization.
In April, 1950, the 5th Infantry Division, after three
years of creditable performance at Fort Iackson as a
replacement training organization, was moved to Indian-
town Gap Military Reservation, and Fort Jackson was
prepared for a ustandbyv status. This status never fully
materialized due to a series of world events which in-
fluenced the continuance of the Post operations on an
active status, and the immediate reactivation of the 8th
Infantry Division as an element of the Third Army was

fected on August 17, 1950.
In january, 1951, the 31st Infantry "Dixiei' Division,
a National Guard organization, was ordered to active
military duty and was home-stationed at Fort jackson.

bama and Mississippi.
In April, 1952, after participating in "Exercise Long-
horni' in Texas, the 31st was transferred to Camp Atter-
A Personnel Center is also located on the reservation,
which consists of a Reception Station and a Transfer
Station. The Reception Station processes all newly in-
ducted personnel and prior service personnel who enter
the Army from civilian life and are forwarded to the post
from Recruiting and Induction Stations. Upon comple-
tion of processing, these individuals are transferred to
training installations for completion of their basic train-
ing. The Transfer Station processes for separation all
overseas returnees whose homes of record are located in
the Third Army Area. To date more than 603,500 mili-
tary personnel have been processed through the various
stations of the Personnel Center.
On May 15, 1954, the 8th Infantry Division was trans-
ferred to Camp Carson, Colorado fminus personnel and
equipmentl, and replaced by the 101st Airborne Divi-
sion. The United States Army Training Center, Infantry,
was the designation given to Ft. jackson on March 16,

There are eighteen chapels and a Family Chapel lo-
cated on the Post, and there are chaplains representing
all major religious faiths.

aim his rifle-finding correct sight picture
and sight alignment. He is shown the art of
battlesight zeroing, firing from supported and
non-supported positions. In the final phases
of this, his first Week at Leesburg, the inte-
grated art of shooting is tried-applying all
the principals learned prior to this time.

T RCET DETECTIO
Estimation of range, and detecting and
marking single and multiple moving targets
are vital to the combat rifleman. To teach this,
practice is given in detection through move-
ment, sound, and engagement of firing and
moving targets. For range estimation, live
personnel are used, to teach the art of dis-
tinguishing between humans and inanimate
objects that may be on a battlefield.

First contact with the "Punchy Pete," the
pop-up target, is made here. Targets pop up
at distances from 75 to 350 meters. Here the
trainee gets his first experience in Bring clips
of amrnunition. Each target is a surprise tar-
get, and while firing, the trainee receives more
practice in target detection.
RECORD FIRI G
Finally, the big day arrives-record tiring.
Targets, camouflaged, in no definite order,
pop up at from 75 to 350 meters. There are
112, and to fire expert, the trainee must hit
68. This tests the soldier's ability to detect
and hit single, combat-type targets in natural
surroundings at unknown ranges, and esti-
mate range to single, stationary battlefield

it's real and itls educational. On the

keep their heads down and learn not

Explaining construction ol
Even when subjected to mortar and heavy
artillery fire, resourceful soldiers can survive
if protected by soundly constructed fortifica-
tions. Trainees are taught to make such forti-
fications from material at hand-from logs
and felled trees and sand-bags, and from rub-
ble itself. Against enemy infiltration, especi-
ally at night, barbed-wire is one of the best
means of defense.

GO ARMY . .
YES .... soldiers grow in the Army! With
basic done, each member of this graduating
class leaves a bigger man. A man who has
grown in self-confidence, in team spirit, in
know-how. And with his new assignment, each
man will continue to grow, enjoying new oppor-
tunities-hroadening horizons. The following
pages show how this class will make time, not
mark time, in the Army!
RMY schools teach more different kinds of subjects than per-
haps any other single school, college or university in the
world. In the vast network of Army technical schools, over 500
courses are offered-everything from accounting to welding.
Those trainees taking technical courses are taught by top profes-
L sionals. In their classrooms and laboratories, they use the most
modern equipment in the world. Still other trainees are taught on
the job itself. They learn hy doing.
YVhichever training a soldier is given, one thing is certain-he
will grow into an expert in his field, with the skill that assures a
A job well done.

GROWTH THRO GH TRAVEL
HE Army provides many travel
opportunities. Assignments taking a
soldier to various parts of this country
may be only a prelude to il tour over-
seas . . . where a soldier will have
ample time to really explore an exciting
foreign land. Wlherever his duty takes
him, he will see new sights, learn new
customs, make new friends. Traveling
and observing different ways of life give
a soldier a new perspective on his own.

GROWTH THRU GH EDUCATIO
HERE are three Army roads to knowledge. First-the United States Armed
Forccs Institute, which conducts the largest correspondence school in the
world. Through USAFI, thousands of soldiers finish their high school education.
A second Army program offers courses at many civilian schools and collcgcs
which may he attended in off-duty time. An ambitious soldier may even get his
college diploma hy this method. Finally, there are Education Centers in hundreds
of Army camps and posts, daily teaching subjects the soldiers themselves have
chosen. Through these three programs, soldiers have an opportunity to carry
their education just as far as they wish.

HE spiritual and moral character develop-
ment of every soldier is extremely important
to the Army. The opportunity for a soldier to
worship in his own religious faith is a funda-
mental part of Army life. Many active programs
are conducted by Protestant, Catholic and Jew-
ish chaplains. There is always a sympathetic
counselor ready to help any soldier with his
religious or personal problems. In addition, Army
discipline builds the moral fiber of each soldier.
It is discipline that develops self-control, self-
respect, and self-reliance-discipline that creates
clean-minded, clean-living soldiers.
The Armyis character guidance program, with
its strong spiritual and moral foundation, serves
as a valuable lesson in developing good citizen-
ship in every soldier.
