Welcome to Fort Gordon

Fort Gordon is home to the United States Army Signal Corp and Signal Center. The fort is a United States army installation that is located in Richmond, Jefferson, McDuffie, and Columbia counties, Georgia. The fort got its name from John Brown Gordon who was a major general in the Confederate army, a Georgia governor, a U.S. senator, and businessman. Originally named Camp Gordon, the post was renamed Fort Gordon in March 1956. The U.S. War Department designated the spot that is the modern-day Fort Gordon after the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. The post was home to three divisions during the war: the 4th Infantry, the 26th Infantry, and the 10th Armored. In January 1945, Camp Gordon, as it was still known, became a camp for foreign prisoners of war. From 1945 to 1946, the Army Personnel and Separation Center processed 86,000 discharged soldiers.
