Visitors Access - What You Need to Know
If you are visiting Fort Jackson
All personnel requesting access to Fort Jackson must be able to show a valid reason for entry, present a valid state or federally issued photo ID (driver's license if driving), current vehicle registration and proof of insurance (if operating a vehicle); no exception.
To ensure that Fort Jackson is in compliance with Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12, all visitors will be vetted prior to entering the installation. While this is a DoD-wide initiative, we are doing all we can to streamline the process for accessing Fort Jackson.
Visitors who do not have a government-issued identification card, will be subject to a background check in order to get an access pass, before being allowed to enter the installation. Those who show a common access card (CAC card), Military ID, Military Dependent ID, or DBIDs Card won't be affected.
All personnel in your vehicle, who are 18 or older, will need a background check. Along with the pass, all visitors must present a valid picture identification card. Valid ID includes a Driver's license, State ID, DD Form 1173 (Uniformed Services Identification and Privilege Card), DD Form 2 series or a passport issued by an authoritative agency (state/federal). Personnel under the age of 18 will not have a background check, and may enter the installation when escorted by a valid pass holder.
Military CAC or ID Holders:
If you are traveling in the same vehicle as a military sponsor (Military ID or Common Access Card holder), you do not need a visitors' pass or background check to enter the installation, provided your visit is escorted by the sponsor. DBIDs cardholders are NOT sponsors. If you are an DBIDS Cardholder, visitors in your vehicle will need to vetted on to the installation by having a background check.

Defense Service Network (DSN) Dialing Instructions
The DSN is the provider of long-distance communications service for the Department of Defense (DoD). Every installation has a special DSN number and the numbers vary by world-wide location. In order to place a call using DSN, the caller must be using a military phone on an installation. Cell phones cannot dial DSN numbers. When dialing a DSN number from a United States installation to another United States installation, it is unnecessary to dial the DSN 312 area code. When dialing a DSN number to/from overseas locations, the DSN area code must be included. The operator can be reached at commercial (719) 567-1110. Please note that long distance charges may be incurred.
