USAG Fort Novosel's mission is to care for the Soldiers, Family Members and Civilians of Fort Novosel and to set the conditions for mission success.

Fort Novosel, the Home of Army Aviation, is an excellent place to live and work. Fort Novosel covers about 63,000 acres of southeast Alabama countryside in an area known as the Wiregrass, named for a wild grass peculiar to the region. Much of the main post is in Dale County, with the remaining government-owned and leased acreage in Coffee, Geneva, and Houston Counties. Most of the countryside is rolling and wooded.

An abundance of lakes and streams and proximity to the Gulf of Mexico make this a fisherman’s paradise. Fort Novosel is about 80 miles southeast of Montgomery, the state capital.  It is just 20 miles northwest of the city of Dothan, home of the National Peanut Festival.  Fort Novosel is surrounded by the communities of Daleville, Enterprise, and Ozark, which have strong ties to the post.
