Military Connections


Welcome to Fort Huachuca, home of the U.S. Army Intelligence Center and the U.S. Army Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM)/9th Army Signal Command.

Fort Huachuca has been a place of innovation for much of its history, which began on March 5, 1877, when it was established as an Army calvary camp.

Today it is home to a great portion of the Army’s high-tech missions involving the development, testing and fielding of intelligence and communication technology as well as a major Department of Defense command.

Fort Huachuca is also the headquarters of Army Military Affiliate Radio System (MARS) and the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) and the Electronic Proving Ground (EPG).

Located in Cochise County, in southeast Arizona, about 15 miles north of the border with Mexico, Fort Huachuca was annexed in 1971 by the city of Sierra Vista and was declared a national landmark in 1976.
