WHO WE ARE ...

     The Joint Readiness Training Center (JRTC) and Fort Polk is located in central Louisiana.  This vibrant installation is home to the Army’s premier Combat Training Center and multiple globally deployable combat formations.  Fort Polk has approximately 8,000 Soldiers stationed at the installation, 13,000 Family Members living on and off-post, 6,000 Department of the Army Civilians and contract employees working on post, and more than 40,000 retirees that live in Central Louisiana and rely on the installation for support / services. 

     As a Soldier, being stationed at JRTC and Fort Polk will be a professionally enhancing assignment as you and your formation focus on “Forging the Warrior Spirit” – building Readiness through establishing proficiency in collective and individual tasks.  The Quality of Life at Fort Polk is an aspect of this installation that you don’t realize until you are stationed here – Soldiers and Army Families enjoy living in one of the Army’s best communities; with many activities – there is something at Fort Polk for everyone!  At an installation focused on building Army readiness; we view Soldier and Army Family Quality of Life as: Education, Housing, Child Care, Health Care, Spouse Employment, and Recreation.  We are surrounded by the most supportive neighbors and local communities in the Army; we see this region as the “intersection of Army Values and Louisiana Values.” 

     We welcome you to the “Home of Heroes” and look forward to “Forging the Warrior Spirit” together as we all serve – Soldier, Family Members, and DA Civilians – at JRTC and Fort Polk.

 ALL THE WAY!

Forging the Warrior Spirit
