The U.S. Army Joint Readiness Training Center and Fort Polk trains brigade combat teams to conduct large scale combat operations on the decisive action battlefield against a near-peer threat with multi-domain capabilities. Fort Polk enables assigned Forces Command units to build readiness in support of globally deployable missions; while facilitating a high quality of life for Soldiers and Army Families.
JRTC and the combat training center platform continues to evolve in order to challenge Soldiers, Leaders, and IBCTs in the most realistic, demanding, rigorous battlefield environment. Focused on Large Scale Combat Operations; JRTC will develop the expanded Peason Ridge Training Area to facilitate multi-domain operations. The North Fort Polk area development plan transforms with the construction of the new JRTC Operations Center; a new Rotational Unit Billeting Area; and enhancements to the pre-positioned fleet - focusing North Fort Polk on JRTC rotations - transitioning to an "all things tactical" foundation. The South Fort Polk area development plan dramatically transforms the platform where the majority of our Soldiers, Units, and Army Families are stationed, work, and live. The movement of the Operations Group to the new JOC at North Fort Polk allows the Fort Polk Soldier Support District to efficiently realign brigade and battalion unit footprints to build Soldier and Unit Readiness - we are focused on "all things Soldier, all things Unit, all things Readiness." As one of the three Quality of Life installations in the Army, JRTC and Fort Polk pursues multiple initiatives within: Education, Housing, Health Care, Child Care, Spouse Employment, and MWR Recreation - enhancing the Soldier and Family Quality of Life at Fort Polk to equal the world-class readiness and training achieved at JRTC.
