Welcome to Fort Carson, Colorado, the Best Hometown in the Army! Known as the Mountain Post, we are one of the top requested stateside locations.

Located on the Southside of Colorado Springs, Fort Carson is a new adventure, a great place to call home, and location where community makes all the difference. And not to mention, Colorado Springs was ranked # 1 Best Big City in "Best Places to Live" by Money magazine, #1 Outside Magazine's list of America's Best Cities and #2 on U.S. News list of most desirable cities.

Whether it’s your 1st move or last of many, the Army Community Service (ACS) Relocation Readiness Program is here to help. For newly arrived Spouses, we encourage you to participate in our monthly welcome on Friday, 16 October or Friday, 18 November.
