FORT KNOX, Ky. (AP) - Fort Knox will become the new home of the U.S. Army’s Recruiting and Retention School come October.

The Department of the Army is moving the school from Fort Jackson, S.C., to the military post in central Kentucky where the U.S. Army Recruiting Command is housed.

The school’s mission statement is to train and educate military and civilian leaders and develop complementary concepts, doctrine, organization, materiel and training across the spectrum of recruiting and retention. Army officials say the move will improve synchronization within the command, enhance the training needs of Army recruiters and better support the development of recruiting doctrine and curriculum development.

The relocation will also result in an annual savings of $14 million and a projected savings of $138 million to the Army over a 10-year period.
