A note to family and friends of the graduating class from the Battalion Commander
It's graduation time for our MOS-T and MOS-I students. They have become Soldiers, trained and proficient in all their warrior tasks and drills. It is now time to celebrate their achievements, by congratulating them, and letting them go out into the Operational Army to show what they have learned.
For those family members that wish to attend the graduation ceremony, directions are provided below.
Fort Gordon is approximately 142 miles east of Atlanta, 80 miles southwest of Columbia, South Carolina and 122 miles northwest of Savannah, Georgia. Fort Gordon is best reached via Interstate 20. Take Exit 194 to Belair Road and Dyess Parkway. Follow the Dyess Parkway signs, and also the Fort Gordon signs. Take note that the exit numbers on I-20 were changed in January 2000; Exit 194 may appear on some older maps as Exit 63. Also, if approaching from the east (from Columbia), you will see signs directing you to take exit 196A to reach Fort Gordon. Do not exit there, go on to Exit 194 instead. Dyess Parkway will bring you directly into the post through McKenna Gate, also known as Gate 1.
From gate 1 make a right onto Rice Road at the second light and turn into the parking lot on your left. Hazen Hall is the building immediately facing Chamberlain Ave.
From gate 2 turn left onto Chamberlain (at the light) and make a left at the second light onto Rice road and turn into parking lot on your left.
From gate 5 keep straight on Avenue of the States. Avenue of the States turns into Rice Road. Keep straight and cross Chamberlain Avenue (you will go through 4 lights) then turn into parking lot on your left.
The Masters golf tournament is held in Augusta, usually during the first full week of April. Hotels and motels, including the post guest house, are usually fully booked during that week and the weekends before and after. DO NOT come to Augusta or Fort Gordon during that time without a reservation! The best bet is to arrive at another time, since traffic is very heavy that week and restaurants are packed.
