Brig. Gen. Bradley Becker is inviting the public to a special, up-close tour of Fort Jackson and its soldiers in training on May 8.
Becker, 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. The tour begins at 7:30 a.m. The cost of lunch is $4.65.
Reservations are required by April 29.
For more information or to register call Fort Jackson Community Relations at (803) 751-1474.
