Georgia's 1st District is home to four military bases: Hunter Army Airfield, Moody Air Force Base, Fort Stewart, and King's Bay Naval Submarine Base. These four bases support U.S. national security and define the 1st District's contribution to the United States military.
Fort Stewart is a United States Army post covering 280,000 acres, primarily in Liberty and Bryan Counties. Combined with its subordinate base, Hunter Army Airfield, it is home to 21,000 soldiers and over 29,000 family members. It is the home of the 3rd Infantry Division and is a leading mobilization station for Army units preparing for deployment, as well as two-week National Guard annual training.
Hunter Army Airfield is located in Savannah and is a subordinate installation to Fort Stewart. It is the home of the 3rd Infantry Division’s Aviation Brigade. The runway and apron, combined with a 72,000 sq ft Arrival/Departure Airfield Control Group Facility and nearby railhead, allow the 3rd Infantry Division and local reserve and National Guard units to deploy soldiers and cargo worldwide.
