  • 369th BN History
  • Graduation Information

  • SSI Library

The 369th Adjutant General Battalion traces its lineage back to the campaigns in the Pacific Theater during World War II. Activated in November 1943 at Schofield Barracks, Hawaii, as the 74th Replacement Battalion, the unit was comprised of headquarters and headquarters detachment and four replacement companies. The unit saw action in the Western Pacific while performing the mission of processing replacements and battle casualties for the combat divisions of the Tenth Army. In June 1947, the unit was re-designated as the 369th Replacement Battalion and allotted to the Organized Reserves.

It remained in this status until it was inactivated again on Aug. 1, 1950 at Fort Jackson. Almost 37 years later, the unit was returned to the Active Army force when it was reactivated as the 369th Adjutant General Battalion on May 30, 1987. The mission of the unit is to serve as the United States Army's trainer for the conduct of Advanced Individual Training for all personnel and administration, legal and finance soldiers.

All graduations will be held at the Fort Jackson Post Theater located on Jackson Blvd.

We hope that you enjoy the 369th Battalion graduation ceremonies and your visit to Fort Jackson.
