. The Armored Force School and the Armored Force Replacement Center were also sited at Fort Knox in October 1940, and their successors remain located there today. The site was expanded to cope with its new role. By 1943, there were 3,820 buildings on 106861 acres (43,245.2 ha). A third of the base has been torn down within the last ten years, with another third slated by 2010.

The Army Human Resource Command Center has re-loacted to Fort Knox from the DC/Virginia area beginning in 2009.

The Army Human Resources Command with approximately 4,300 mostly civilian personnel has been consolidated at Fort Knox. The new center will combine offices that were located in Virginia, Indiana and Missouri. The 3rd Brigade, 1st Infantry Division, with approximately 3,400 personnel, that was stationed at Fort Hood, Texas, has been relocated to Fort Knox.

It’s expected that between $800 and $900 million worth of construction will take place at Fort Knox for the BRAC reorganization, and for base modernization projects.

The Fort Knox BRAC reorganization is scheduled to be completed by the end of September 2011.
