U.S. Patriot Bravery Tour Stops at Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield

The home of the 3rd Infantry Division, Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield will host the U.S. Patriot Bravery Tour at the base exchange on June 15, 2023.

Lexington, KY (June 2023)U.S. Patriot, a GALLS® company, and one of the largest military suppliers of uniforms, boots, and gear, will make a stop at Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield on Thursday, June 15, 2023.

The event will be held at the base exchange located at 345 Lindquist Road, Bldg. 71 and will feature food, drinks, promos, giveaways, and a chance to win the 2023 Jeep® Wrangler Willys 4×4. The U.S. Patriot team is traveling 6800 miles round-trip in the specially wrapped Jeep. The event is open to all former and current military members and their families.

“The purpose of this tour is to meet our customers face-to-face, get to know our troops, and bring their voice directly into how we serve them better for their tactical gear needs.,” Mike Fadden, CEO of U.S. Patriot, said. “There is no better way to honor the bravery and sacrifice of the men and women who serve our country than to meet them in person, celebrate their stories and create a fun and memorable event they can enjoy with their families.”

The tour will be interactive, and the military service members will be encouraged to leave their unit’s memorabilia on the Jeep, making it one-of-its-kind by the end of the tour. At the conclusion of the tour, the Jeep will be given away through a sweepstake random drawing to one lucky winner. All active-duty military members, national guard members, reservists, military retirees, military veterans, and dependents of active-duty military members are eligible to enter the sweepstakes.

About Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield:

James Oglethorpe helped to establish the British colony of Georgia and created the first European settlement in the Fort Stewart area in 1733 with Fort Argyle, a buffer between the Carolina colonies and the Spanish enemy in North Florida. Ironic today, Fort Stewart’s beginnings were as a military fortification. Located in the Low Country between the rich harbors of Savannah and Charleston, the area was thinly settled until the early 20th century.

Fort Stewart is named for a Revolutionary War hero, Brigadier General Daniel Stewart. It is the largest military installation east of the Mississippi River. In the 1940s Camp Stewart became the Anti-Aircraft Artillery Training Center. During WWII a detachment of Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs) arrived. After a brief period of inactivity, Camp Stewart found itself active again during the Korean War. It was redesignated as the 3rd Army Anti-Aircraft Training Center and included armor and tank firing training as well. In 1956 it was officially designated Fort Stewart and became the Armor and Artillery Firing Center. During the Cuban Missile Crisis, the 1st Armored Division was staged and reviewed by Commander in Chief, President John F. Kennedy, at the Donovan Parade Field on Fort Stewart.

In the 1960s, the US Army Aviation School was transferred from Fort Rucker, Alabama to Fort Stewart. The new mission was helicopter pilot training and gunnery courses during the Vietnam War. When the US Air Force closed its base at Hunter Field in Savannah in 1967, the Army assumed control and the US Army Flight Training Center came into being, where the Army established the first dedicated attack helicopter training school. Hunter Army Airfield is also the home of the US Coast Guard Station in Savannah with the largest helicopter unit in the Coast Guard. After Vietnam, Fort Stewart received the reactivated 1st Battalion, 75th Infantry Regiment (Ranger). The 24th Infantry Division was also reactivated and designated a mechanized infantry division. When Iraq invaded and overran Kuwait, it was the 24th Rapid Deployment Force mobilized to support operations in Saudi Arabia. After eight months the Persian Gulf concluded and the 24th Infantry Division returned home. In 1996 the 24th was inactivated and the 3rd Infantry Division was reactivated.
