Fort Knox, Ky. (NEWS RELEASE) – The Department of the Army announced March 10 the decision to relocate the Recruiting and Retention School from Fort Jackson, S.C., to Fort Knox, Ky., 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.

With U.S. Army Recruiting Command already located here, this move will improve synchronization within the command; enhance the training needs of Army recruiters; and better support the development of recruiting doctrine and curriculum development.

The relocation will also result in an annual savings of $14 million and a projected savings of $138 million to the Army over a 10-year period.
