The US Army Drill Sergeant Academy is Hiring!
Did you know there are 16 total US Army Reserve Drill Sergeant Leaders (DSL) positions at the Drill Sergeant Academy (DSA) at Fort Jackson? With a total of eight (8) AGR and eight (8) ADOS (TPU) positions, the DSA provides an excellent opportunity for our best and brightest Drill Sergeants seeking to separate themselves from their peers.

Soldiers selected for DSL assignment will not only be afforded opportunities to complete 1-2 full BCT cycles on the trail as a DS, but also to become a certified instructor, Master Fitness Trainer, Master Resilience Trainer, and much more- all while continuing PME coursework as you become eligible. Above all, as a DSL, you will be train and mentor the US Army’s future Drill Sergeants- impacting and shaping not only them, but also the Soldiers they will soon train.
