FORT JACKSON, S.C. (WIS) - The Chaplain Corps held a ribbon cutting on post at Fort Jackson to honor the transition of the U.S. Army Institute for Religious Leadership (USAIRL) previously known as the Army Chaplain Center and School.

According to Fort Jackson, all chaplains and religious affairs specialists for the U.S. Army are trained at the institute.

The Army Chief of Chaplains, Chap. (Maj. Gen.) Thomas L. Solhjem stated steps for reform began in 2016.
