Fort Jackson | Carolina Snaps

Kaltura

Fort Jackson in Columbia, SC trains 50% of US Army soldiers and 60% of female recruits. It was established in 1917 and almost closed in 1949 but remained open due to the Cold War and Korean War. It became one of the first Army bases to desegregate. Fort Jackson is now the Army's largest training post for new soldiers.
