Fort Stewart's main gate static display was updated on Feb. 26 with an OH-58 Kiowa. The AH-1 Cobra that was on display is now at the 3rd Infantry Division Museum. Swapping the helicopters on the static display brings it more up-to-date with vehicles that have recently served or continue to serve in the division's formations. The Kiowa was retired from service at Hunter Army Airfield's 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade in May 2015. The helicopter swap was a unified effort between several installation units, including the aviation brigade, the 3rd Infantry Division Sustainment Brigade, and the Directorate of Public Works.
