Welcome to Fort Hamilton!
Welcome to Fort Hamilton, located in the southwestern corner of Brooklyn, New York, surrounded by the communities of Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights and Bensonhurst, which places us in the middle of the New York City Metropolitan area. Fort Hamilton houses the U.S. NYC Recruiting Battalion; N.Y. Military Processing Station; North Atlantic Division, U.S Army Corps of Engineers.
The installation covers 120 acres inside the fence. More than 295 military service members and about 700 civilian personnel work at Fort Hamilton, with about 787 primary residents and Family members living on post.
Newly assigned enlisted Soldiers should report to the Battalion or Brigade S-1 of the unit to which they are assigned to begin in-processing and to be given a sponsor if one has not been issued prior to arrival. Installation in-processing will take place at 114 White Ave. In-processing takes place Monday-Friday starting at 0800-1200 and 1300-1630. The center offers one-stop service to all incoming permanent party Soldiers. Services include the processing of personnel records, finance, a briefing given by the Alcohol /Drug Prevention and Control Program Manager and a briefing provided by ACS to include Reentry issues, community information and ACS overview.
New Civilian employees should report to the Civilian Personnel Advisory Center (CPAC) located at 114 White Ave (2nd Floor).
Sponsor Support. If a sponsor was not provided prior to the Soldier/Families’ arrival, the gaining unit will provide a reactionary sponsor to assist in the acclimation of the newcomer. ACS provides unit sponsorship training on a monthly basis upon request, and will provide Welcome Packets. ACS will act as a sponsor to those Soldiers and Family Members as needed.
Army Community Service (ACS). ACS operates a Lending Closet that is stocked with household items that newly arrived Service Members as well as Civilian employees may borrow. The Relocation Readiness Program Manager is also available to aid and assist incoming personnel with settling in services. Smooth transition of our Soldiers, Family members and Civilian employees is a joint effort of all ACS programs; therefore, referrals will be given to programs not only in ACS but outside agencies as well when warranted.
