TRADOC Public Affairs
The Department of the Army announced Monday the decision to relocate the Recruiting and Retention School from Fort Jackson, S.C. to Fort Knox, effective Oct. 1.
The RRS mission statement is to train and educate military and civilian leaders and develop complementary concepts, doctrine, organization, materiel, and training across the spectrum of recruiting and retention in support of the Army Force Generation and to enable America’s Armed Forces to fight and win our nation’s wars.
Relocating the RRS to Fort Knox will provide greater synergy and synchronization between the RRS and the U.S. Army Recruiting Command related to the training needs of recruiters and staff in the development of recruiting doctrine, distance learning and school training curriculum. The relocation will also result in an annual savings of $14 million and a projected savings to the Army of $138 million over a 10-year period.
