Army Cyber Command to be at Fort Gordon, GA

The Army's Cyber Command will be collected into a central headquarters located at Fort Gordon, Georgia. Fort Gordon is also home to the service's Signal Center and Signal Corps. Many of the Cyber Command elements are spread across the United States to include the D.C. area and Fort Meade, Maryland. While the move might make sense from an Army standpoint of co-locating communications and cyber capabilities the Army's Cyber Command will move away from the nation's historical center of the intelligence world (Washington, DC) and from the embattled National Security Agency (NSA) located at Fort Meade, Maryland.
