WASHINGTON, DC – Fort Stewart-Hunter U.S. Army Garrison leadership were recognized May 18 by the Vice Chief of Staff of the Army for excellence as a power projection platform during the 2018 Army Communities of Excellence award ceremony.

Col. Jason Wolter, Fort Stewart-Hunter U.S. Army Garrison commander, and a delegation from Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield received the Army Communities of Excellence Bronze award from the Vice Chief of Staff of the Army, Gen. James C. McConville and Lt. Gen. Gwen Bingham, the Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management. 

“This award symbolizes the hard work and sacrifice made daily by our team at Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield as we work towards being the Army’s premier power projection platform,” Wolter said. 

McConville lauded Fort Stewart and the other recognized installations for understanding readiness is a key factor towards being an Army community of excellence.

“It’s not just about building services… What these winning installations do is provide world class power projection platforms. They sustain our daily operations and enable our units to concentrate on their missions without distraction,” McConville said. “When an installation is well-run and well-managed everything from range operations to commissary visit to a long deployment is easier for our Soldiers, civilians and Families.”

Fort Stewart is ranked in the top five percent of all U.S. Army garrisons. Other garrisons receiving recognition included Fort Rucker, Alabama (Gold winner); Fort McCoy, Wisconsin (Silver winner); Daegu, South Korea (Bronze winner); Fort Knox, Kentucky (Honorable Mention); and Fort Wainwright (Honorable Mention).

The ACOE award honors the top Army, National Guard and Reserve installations that achieved high levels of excellence building a quality environment, outstanding facilities, and superior services. The installations are evaluated against Army priorities and Malcolm Baldridge Criteria for Performance Excellence.

Also attending the ceremony representing Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield were Lt. Col Ken Dwyer, the Hunter Army Airfield Garrison commander; Command Sgt. Maj. Lavander Wilkerson, the Hunter Army Airfield Garrison senior enlisted leader; Phyllis Taylor of Fort Stewart USAG Plans, Analysis, Integration Office; and Lily Baker, Chair of the Liberty County School System.
