United States Army Accessions Command

The United States Army Accessions Command was established by Headquarters, Department of the Army General Orders Number 1, effective 15 February 2002, as a subordinate command of the United States Army Training and Doctrine Command. It is a subordinate command of TRADOC charged with providing integrated command and control of the recruiting and initial military training for the Army's officer, warrant officer, and enlisted forces. Designed to meet the human resource needs of the Army from first handshake to first unit of assignment, the command transforms volunteers into soldiers and leaders for the Army. Three subordinate commands were assigned: United States Army Cadet Command, United States Army Recruiting Command, and United States Army Training Center, Fort Jackson. The headquarters operates from three locations: Fort Monroe, Virginia; Fort Knox, Kentucky; and Fort Jackson, South Carolina. From first handshake through the completion of individual training, Accessions Command transforms volunteers into Soldiers/Leaders immediately capable of contributing to their first unit, be it Legacy, Interim, or Objective force. Accessions Command is dedicated to providing Soldiers/Leaders of character and competence, inculcated with Army values, imbued with the warrior spirit, persuasive in peace, and invincible in war. It is the Soldiers and their training that will make the difference - Soldiers capable of doing everything they do faster, better, and more affordably.
