The 73rd Ordnance Battalion is a training battalion operating under the 15th Regimental Signal Brigade at Fort Gordon, Georgia. The battalion's higher headquarters is the 59th Ordnance Brigade. We train and develop Ordnance Corps MOS-I and MOS-T Soldiers. Training covers Ordnance Electronic Maintenance military occupational specialties taught by civilian and military instructors from the Ordnance Electronic Maintenance Training Department, which is a Department of the Ordnance Munitions and Electronics Maintenance School (OMEMS) at Ft. Lee, VA. The 73rd Ordnance Battalion also manages the Ordnance Training Detachment, located at Ft. Sill, OK.
Here at the 73rd, we take training seriously. In addition learning the technical skills that give a soldier his Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) title, the Cobra soldier also learns tactical skills. MOS-I, and MOS-T Soldier's will have the opportunity to train in several combat related tasks. This training includes (but is not limited to), Hand-to-Hand Combatives, Building Clearing, Night Operations, Weapons Emersion, and much, much more. This training is one of the final stages in the soldier's transformation into an Army Combat Warrior.
