About

Fort Knox is a United States Army post in Kentucky south of Louisville and north of Elizabethtown. It is also the site of the United States Bullion Depository, which is used to house a large portion of the United States’ official gold reserves. The 109,000-acre base covers parts of Bullet, Hardin, and Meade counties. It currently holds the Army Human Resources Center of Excellence to include the Army Human Resources Command. For 60 years, Fort Knox was the home of the U.S. Army Armor Center and the U.S. Army Armor School (now moved to Fort Benning ), and was used by both the Army and the Marine Corps to train crews on the M1 Abrams main battle tank. Fort Knox has a population of over 40,000 Soldiers, family members, and civilian employees. Fort Knox uniquely boasts the sole responsibility for all Soldier career management, from swearing into departing service. Its units include Army Cadet Command, Army Human Resources Command, and Army Recruiting Command. These units, along with the 19th Engineer Battalion the 3rd Expeditionary Sustainment Command, 4th Cavalry Brigade, 1st Army Division (East), Ireland Army Community Hospital, and other “Partners in Excellence” make Fort Knox the most multifunctional military base in the United States Army.
