Things are constantly changing and getting done inside Fort Gordon. Garrison Commander Col. Shaw Pick updated on what’s happening during the CSRA Home Connections monthly breakfast meeting Wednesday. 

More than 20,000 service members call Fort Gordon home

Pick said Fort Gordon, with a supported population of 120,209 of service members, civilians and family members can be considered the sixth largest city in Georgia. With the Army Cyber Center of Excellence moving from Maryland to Georgia, the majority of the workforce arrived last year. 

“The brunt is behind us of the influx. If you go back for the last eight years, we have grown by 9,000 soldiers from 2012 to now,” Pick said. “That’s been the majority of the growth that has come to Fort Gordon. We have continued growth but it won’t be at that peak.”
