Commander’s Welcome

Congratulations on your selection to participate in a Training or Advance Education Program! Welcome to the premier U.S. Army Student Detachment (USASD) at Fort Jackson, South Carolina.

On behalf of the U.S. Army Student Detachment (USASD), the Leader Training Brigade (LTB), the U.S. Army Center for Initial Military Training (CIMT) Fort Eustis, Virginia and Fort Jackson, South Carolina, I am honored to command the Students assigned/attached to USASD and the Staff that provides Human Resources and Finance support to the Student population.

I encourage you to periodically check this website throughout your tenure to remain abreast of updates.  Students’ adherence to the Army Values, emphasis on integrity, patience, diligence, personal responsibility, and accountability will be the tools for success while assigned to USASD.

Together, Students and Staff, “We are the Student Detachment! Defend, Support, and Serve.”
