Welcome to Fort Bliss and West Texas!
Your assignment brings you to the corner of Texas, New Mexico, and Old Mexico. From its humble beginnings in 1848 to becoming one of the premier installations in the Department of Defense, Fort Bliss is a multi-faceted, multi-functional installation serving and supporting all branches of the military, as well as other federal agencies.
Fort Bliss is home to a diverse listing of organizations, such as: the 1st Armored Division, the 32nd Army Air and Missile Defense Command, the Joint Modernization Command, William Beaumont Army Medical Center, the United States Army Sergeants Major Academy, Joint Task Force North, and the U.S. Army Garrison Command-Fort Bliss.
The Fort Bliss Reception Company, Forge Company, is the first impression for new arrivals to the installation. It is the responsibility of the Command team and cadre to Integrate, Receive, and Onboard New Arrivals to their gaining units (IRON). By bridging gaps identified between resources, units, and service members, we achieve a smoother transition for new arrivals and their families enabling readiness across the installation.Soldier Services Videos
