From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Soldier Support Institute (SSI), located on the corner of Hampton Parkway and Lee Road, is the Army’s organization that trains and educates human resources management, financial management, recruiting and retention, postal operations and music support Soldiers, civilians and leaders. The Institute develops complementary concepts, doctrine, organizations, and materiel in support of ARFORGEN and Human Capital Enterprise to enable America’s Armed Forces to fight and win our Nation’s wars.

The SSI is part of the Sustainment Center of Excellence (SCoE)/CASCOM (Headquartered at Fort Lee, VA) and fully integrated into the Sustainment Warfighter Function. The Sustainment Center of Excellence is a Major Subordinate Element of the Training and Doctrine Command. SCoE is the integrating headquarters for all sustainment functions.

The SSI is comprised of three major schools; Adjutant General, Financial Management, and the Recruiting and Retention Schools. It also includes the Noncommissioned Officer Academy, the 369th Adjutant General Battalion, and the Training Support Battalion.

The Recruiting and Retention School (RRS) trains and has Proponency for all Army Recruiting and Retention professionals. The RRS provides versatile and experienced leaders to the force; capable and confident in executing their Core Competencies at every level of command. The RRS supports the United States Army Recruiting Command in providing the strength for our Army. They are successful when USAREC and The Army are completely satisfied with the technical acumen and leadership competence demonstrated by our graduates. The RRS is a learning organization and will remain adaptive and responsive to customer's needs. The school will be swift while responding to change in recruiting and retention operations, missions, and market dynamics. The school will remain an organization prepared to leverage technology for institutional readiness. The Adjutant General and Financial Management Schools are “home” to their respective Army branches, the Adjutant General’s Corps and the Finance Corps. The two branch schools offer the Basic Officer Leadership Course for newly commissioned lieutenants and the Captain's Career Course for first lieutenants and captains in their third or fourth year of commissioned service. The School Commandants are the proponents for their branches and oversee the development of Doctrine, Organizations, Training, Leader Development, Material, and Personnel within their corps (Active and Reserve Components). The Soldier Support Institute’s Concepts Development & Integration Directorate and Training Development Directorate assist the Commandants with these tasks. Both schools frequently assemble Mobile Training Teams (MTTs) to go to specific geographical regions to train Soldiers.

The Adjutant General School also includes the Army Bands Program and Army School of Music, currently located at Little Creek, VA. The Interservice Postal School is also an element of the Adjutant General School which trains enlisted Soldiers and noncommissioned officers from all of America’s military services in modern postal operations. The Adjutant General School also conducts Basic Warrant Officer and Advanced Warrant Officer courses within Human Resources Management.

The Noncommissioned Officer Academy (NCOA) is located in Mabry Hall at the corner of Bragg Street and Jackson Boulevard. The NCOA provides enlisted leadership training for Soldiers holding military occupational specialties in the human resource management, financial management, recruiting and retention, and religious areas of Army operations.

The 369th Adjutant General Battalion is headquartered at Anderson Street and Magruder Avenue and conducts Advanced Individual Training (AIT) for the Adjutant General, Financial Management, and Judge Advocate General Courses. The location of the AIT complex ranges from Sumter Avenue to Magruder Avenue and Longstreet to Ferguson Street.

The Training Support Battalion is headquartered at Early Street and Magruder Ave. All Soldiers assigned to the SSI (except the 369th and NCO Academy) are assigned to the Training Support Battalion. This organization also runs the Warrior Training Area which hosts the culminating exercise for all schools (except RRS) to apply classroom learning in a simulated operational environment. The Training Support Battalion also includes the International Student Office, which oversees the attendance of International Students to courses offered on Fort Jackson.

The Soldier Support Institute is a premier learning organization dedicated to preparing Soldiers for the first assignment as Human Resources, Financial Management, or Legal Administration Specialists within the Army and the professional development of Soldiers, NCOs, Commissioned Officers, Warrant Officers and Civilians in the Core Competencies of the Adjutant General, Financial Management, Recruiting/Retention and Chaplain Assistant areas. We train the force in these competencies and retain currency within the Doctrine, Organizations, Training, Leader Development, Material, and Personnel for the Adjutant General and Finance Corps and Recruiting/Retention.
