Fort Belvoir

Fort Belvoir is a United States Army  installation in Fairfax County, Virginia and is approximately 20 miles South of Washington, D.C.  With nearly twice as many workers as The Pentagon, Belvoir is the largest employer in Fairfax County. The installation comprises three geographically distinct properties: the main base, Davison Army Airfield, and the Fort Belvoir North Area.


Fort Belvoir is unlike any other Army installation in the world. It has a diverse, modern-day mission of being a strategic sustaining base for America’s Armed Forces. Fort Belvoir’s modern-day mission is providing logistical and administrative support to over 120 diverse tenant satellite organizations. The installation is home to several Army command headquarters, units and agencies of nine different Army major commands, 16 different agencies of the Department of the Army, eight elements of the U. S. Army Reserve and Army National Guard and nine DOD agencies. All these agencies play important roles in Fort Belvoir’s global mission to provide worldwide logistical and administrative support to all the armed services.
