Brig. Gen. Bryan Roberts is inviting the public to a special, up-close tour of Fort Jackson and its soldiers in training on May 16.
Roberts, the commanding general, will host a six-hour Come See Your Army tour to give local citizens an opportunity to see how soldiers train and provide insight into the day-to-day operations of the fort.
Visitors will attend a basic training graduation, see soldiers train, learn to shoot the M16A2 simulator and eat in an Army dining facility. Lunch cost is $4.60.
The tour begins at 7:45 a.m. and reservations are required by May 9.
For more information or to register call Fort Jackson Community Relations at (803) 751-1474.
