Fort Stewart
Fort Stewart is located along the Canoochee River. The Fort Stewart Military Reservation includes approximately 280,000 acres, making it the largest military installation in the Eastern United States. The philosophy at Stewart-Hunter is readiness — ensuring our Soldiers are prepared to deploy and answer the nation's call; ensuring the installation is able to provide an efficient deployment and training platform for Soldiers and equipment; ensuring leadership and workforce development; and providing for the well-being of our community members — all in a safe and secure environment. Our installation discovered long ago that success comes from a total effort to take care of our service members, civilians and their families. To this end, we work hard to provide exceptional services to the 26,000 military members, 36,000 dependents and 5,000 civilians who work and live at Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield. We are committed to provide them the best medical services, housing, child care, recreation and fitness activities, and family support services available in the military. As a result, we have found this to be a place of good neighbors — so, if home is where the heart is, welcome home.
