Today, Congressman Earl L. "Buddy" Carter (GA-01) joined the United States Army at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. to award Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield with the Army Communities of Excellence (ACOE) Gold Award. 

“The award today proves what we’ve always known; Fort Stewart and Hunter are without a doubt the best army installations in the nation,” Carter said. “This award recognizes not only the best performing installation, but also the best community in the Army. As the Army considers manpower drawdowns, Fort Stewart and Hunter are clearly ready for the opposite. It’s remarkable that this is the 6th year they have taken the Gold Award and I’m confident that there will be many more to come.”

The annual ACOE competition measures and recognizes the best performing installations and communities in the Army. This year marks the 6th time that Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield have placed gold in the Army Communities of Excellence Awards. Fort Stewart-Hunter won gold in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2009, and 2012.

Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Air Field are uniquely equipped and strategically located to deliver a devastating blow to our adversaries world-wide. It has vast training areas, modern facilities and an extraordinary network of intermodal deployment options through nearby ports and on-base and nearby airports. Carter represents Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Air Field in the United States Congress.
