Welcome to Fort Gordon

Fort Gordon is also known as the “Home of the Signal Regiment” and supports major tenant units such as the 35th Signal Brigade, 513th Military Intelligence Brigade, and the U.S. Army Signal Center for Excellence (SigCoE). It is located in Augusta, Georgia.

Like many posts from the early 1900s, Fort Gordon was started as a training camp for World War I soldiers. It was named after Major General John Brown Gordon, a Confederate general. During the second world war, the fort trained infantry and armored divisions and ended up as a disciplinary barracks for German and Italian POWs. After WWII, Fort Gordon gained several schools including the Military Police School, the Army’s only Criminal Investigation Laboratory, and the Civil Affairs School. Up until the 1970s, the fort was also used for basic training. Soon the focus switched to the communications and military intelligence it still specializes in today.

Weather in the Augusta-Richmond area of eastern, central Georgia is fairly moderate, although summertime can be very humid. The average temperature in July is about 82 degrees F, with nearly 80% humidity. Temps in January are around 45 degrees, although some days can be much colder and occasional snow/freezing rain has been known to happen. The average precipitation is about 45 inches per year.

There are many communities around Fort Gordon of varying sizes which offer off post housing.
