Fort Sill, near Lawton, Oklahoma is the main artillery base for the U.S. Army, containing the Artillery Center and School. The school has two training brigades and a U.S. Marine Corps detachment; the doctrine development center has two Fires Brigades.

Fort Sill was established in 1869 and is the only Army base still operational, of all the forts on the South Plains built during the Indian wars.
