The Joint Readiness Training Center and Fort Polk has a reputation across the Army as the crucible training experience American Soldiers face before deploying to fight and win our nation’s wars. A JRTC rotation is tough and rigorous – and participating in one is also a mark of distinction for Soldiers.

A tour of Fort Polk can be a professionally and personally rewarding experience. Fort Polk offers a choice of on and off-post housing, a reasonable (affordable) cost of living, a safe environment to raise a family, a beautiful post with new and renovated facilities, and a choice of education opportunities for children and adults. Louisiana’s culture is unique – make your tour here an opportunity to “laissez les bon temps rouler” (let the good times roll).
