Fort Jackson to conduct tours of training

jwilkinson@thestate.comSeptember 15, 2012 

Maj Gen. Bryan Roberts is inviting the public to a special, up-close tour of Fort Jackson and its soldiers in training.

The commanding general will host a six-hour event Oct. 11, beginning at 7:45 a.m., that will let the public see how soldiers train and offer insight into the day-to-day operations at the post.

Visitors will attend Basic Combat Training graduation, see soldiers train, learn to shoot an M16A2 in a simulator and eat in an Army dining facility.

The tours are free, but lunch in a post dining facility will cost $4.55. To register, call (803) 751-1474.
