Welcome to Fort Bragg

Fort Bragg is a major U.S. Army Base located in North Carolina between Hoke and Cumberland counties. The fort is named after Confederate General Braxton Bragg, who commandeered Army forces during the Civil War. Fort Bragg was originally an artillery training ground, and by World War II, in 1940, the fort had grown to 67,000 soldiers and continues to thrive. Army units stationed at Fort Bragg include the 1st Training Brigade, the 3rd Special Forces Group, the 1st SFOD-D and many others. Following the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, the Fort Bragg units grew considerably, and the fort is now home to 20 or more specialty units not including the airborne units at nearby Pope Air Force Base.

Temperatures tend to run warm in summer with the mercury in the 70s and cold in the winter where it hovers near 40 degrees. The warmest month of the year is July. The fort area gets about 46 inches of rainfall annually. Fort Bragg covers about 19 square miles and occupies about 160,000 acres. The median income on the base is $30,000, and many housing options can be found in the nearby cities of Fayetteville, Pinehurst, and Spring Lake. The commands located at Fort Bragg are proud to be some of the most highly trained and skilled units in the Armed Forces. By the summer of 2011, as part of the Base Realignment and Closure initiative, Fort Brag will welcome both FORSCOM and USARC headquarters to its ranks.
