One of the last cogs in the Base Realignment and Closure machine for Fort Knox will arrive Friday.
The Army Reserve Readiness Training Center will uncase its flag at 10:30 a.m. at its official headquarters in Gaffey Hall on Old Ironsides Avenue. The ceremony is open to the public.
The training center, which consists of around 150 soldiers and civilians, is a school that specializes in mobilization and movement; training and operations; human resources management; logistics and engineering; security, resource and information management; and retention and entry training, according to the Fort Knox Public Affairs Office.
More than 8,000 active and reserve military personnel, technicians and Department of the Army civilians will travel to the post to train at the center each year.
The training center originally was part of the 84th U.S. Army Reserve Readiness Training Command but split from the command to form the current center and the 84th Training Command, which has been at Fort Knox for the past three years, according to Fort Knox PAO.
Members of the public interested in attending are encouraged to access the post through Chaffee Gate.
