FORT GORDON HISTORY
1. As new ideas gradually replace the old, Fort Gordon continues its
planned modernization with improvements geared toward the fast-paced
world of today's soldier. Improvements in housing and recreational
facilities, as well as medical and educational opportunities are designed
keep Fort Gordon Hon the move" in response to the Army's ever in-
creasing demand for professionalism.
2. The post's rapidly changing profile is high-lighted by the new Dwight
David Eisenhower U. S. Army Medical Center. This, plus Fort Gordon's
growing role as home of the Army Signal Corps, make the 1970's another
decade of historic progress at the Fort.
3. Fort Gordon was activated December 4, 1941, three days before the
bombing of Pearl Harbor. In those first war torn years, it was called Camp
Gordon, and not until 1956 did the Secretary of the Army make the post a
permanent military installation and change the name to Fort Gordon.
4. Throughout those first years, hundreds of thousands of infantrymen
trained on Camp Gordon's newly cleared ranges, marched on its unpaved
roads and lived in drafty wood barracks.
5. These men were members of three famous divisions which trained
hereg first the 4th Infantry Division tthe Rolling 4thj commanded by Major
General R. O. Barton, a native Augustan.
6. Next in line for Fort Gordon's training was the 26th Infantry Division.
After one year of training, demands for fresh troops sent the 'tYankeei'
division departing for Europe.
7. Then in September 1943, the 10th Armored Division iTigersj came and
trained for a short time before leaving for foreign shores. In 1972, after a
31-year absence, the Tigers returned to Fort Gordon. That year the Army
Chief of Staff directed the colors of the 10th Division be returned to Fort
Gordon for a permanent home.
8. About the same time as the divisions were training, the Camp Gordon
Station Hospital was constructed, made up of 139 frame buildings with a
300 bed capacity. Today, it has an authorized capacity of 1,100 and soon
will be replaced with the new 14-story teaching hospital.
9. In 1948, the US Army Military Police School began Operations on Fort
Gordon. In 26 years, it has played a major role in the development of the
fort, but now is only a part of Fort Gordon's history as it has moved to Fort
10. The 1st Basic Combat Training Brigade was activated on 1 July 1975,
an event which marked the return of basic combattraining to Fort Gordon
after an absence of five years. After a short and intense preparation
period, training began on 3 October 1975. The Brigade has since become
known as the itRattIer" Brigade and has adopted as its unofficial emblem
the crest pictured on the cover of each graduating class program. A color
reproduction would show 13 white stars on a field of infantry blue,
representing. respectively, the 13 original colonies in honor of the
bicentennial, and the Infantry which is the arm of service most closely
identified with basic combat training. The rattlesnake signifies our
nations readiness to defend itself. The nickname and motto are written on
ribbons of Signal Corps orange representing the ultimate specialty to be
performed by the majority of the brigades graduates.
11. The Consolidation of communications training and the construction
of the Army's most modern medical center at Fort Gordon offer visions of
even greater things to come as the post continues its tradition as a
primary training site in the US defense structure.

Just as the weapons of modern warfare are being constantly improved, so
is the Army's most potent weapon, the individual soldier.
In the future, as in the past and the present, you, the American soldier,
are the ultimate weapon as the United States continues to meet the challenges
of the rapidly changing world around us. Guns, tanks, missiles, and switch-
boards are only as good as the men who operate them.
That is why you have been trained -- night and day -- to prepare yourselves
to meet this ever increasing threat to our democratic way of life.
Men before you courageously fought, bled, and died to build our country
into the mightiest nation in the free world. Now it is you who must meet this
challenge. You must be prepared to make any sacrifices necessary to preserve
our American way of life, a life based upon the dignity of the individual.
This challenge calls for highly trained soldiers, ready to move, and to
move fast. It calls for soldiers equipped and trained to fight, whether with
rifles, radio equipment, or nuclear weapons.
Your training has been rough and realistic as its main purpose was to
prepare you -- the American soldier -- to meet any enemy anywhere in combat
and defeat him.
You are now a member of the finest army in the world. It is you, the
individual soldier, who must keep it the finest.
Congratulations, soldier -- you have now joined the ranks of the legions
of citizens who have served our country in war and peace.
