Welcome to Fort Rucker

Welcome to the home of Army Aviation! Fort Rucker, Ala., is an excellent place to live and work. Fort Rucker operates much like any hometown. After all, the post is virtually a small city. The Garrison Command oversees the services and support necessary for the daily operations of a city. Fort Rucker 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.

 

Fort Rucker, named U.S. Army Aviation Center of Excellence in 2008, serves as the headquarters for U.S. Army Aviation. While the garrison command manages the daily operations of the Fort Rucker community, the Aviation Branch Headquarters develops, coordinates and deploys Aviation operations, training and doctrine. The U.S. Army Aviation Center of Excellence also hosts various Army tenant organizations.
