Fort Indiantown Gap is the only live-fire and maneuver military base in Pennsylvania. It is considered the nation’s largest National Guard training facility by number of mandays trained – close to one million annually.

A project to construct a new security perimeter around the Gap is expected to begin later this year, with the timeline being pushed back slightly so far due to the coronavirus pandemic.
