History

MG Philip H. Sheridan staked out the site that would become Fort Sill in January 1869. Sheridan was leading a campaign into Indian Territory to stop hostile tribes from raiding border settlements in Texas and Kansas. Troops from the 10th Cavalry, a distinguished unit of African-American “Buffalo Soldiers” who constructed many of the stone buildings still surrounding the Old Post Quadrangle, camped at the new fort. As Home of the Field Artillery, Fort Sill is not only at the forefront of tremendous technological advances, but it is also steeped in natural, living history.

Mission

Fort Sill’s mission is to train artillery soldiers and train them well. To do that, they are trained day and night to put “steel on target.” Fort Sill’s three-pronged approach to training and preparedness makes it one of the best training posts in the Army. It is comprised of the Field Artillery School, the primary training facility for field artillery soldiers and marines worldwide; the Field Artillery Training Center, home of basic combat, one-station unit training, and advanced individual training; and is the largest field artillery complex in the free world.

Population

Fort Sill is a large installation. The total population in Fort Sill is about 53,000 including, 20,000 military and civilian personnel, and 33,000 military family members. There is a robust retiree community that is supported by Fort Sill.
