Georgia legislators will be mark 3rd Infantry Division Day at the Capitol on March 9.

The event is being hosted by Representative Al Williams, D-Midway, and organized by the Liberty County Chamber and Convention and Visitors Bureau. The focus will be to demonstrate the significance of Fort Stewart/Hunter Army Airfield to coastal Georgia and the state as a whole, as well as proclaim the pride Georgians have for the men and women of the 3rd ID.

Fort Stewart/Hunter leaders will be on the floor of the House that morning, along with several area elected officials, as Williams and others recognize the contributions of the 3rd ID.

In 2015, Williams started the salute to honor the sacrifices made by the soldiers. This bi-annual tradition also highlights the support that Fort Stewart/Hunter gets from the coastal counties surrounding the installation.

“We are excited about the 3rd Infantry Division’s visit,” Williams said. “We have a lot of support in the House for our division, as well as a tremendous amount of pride in our men and women in uniform. We are all looking forward to the visit.”
