Fort Stewart/Hunter Army Air Field is one of five installations named 2009 Secretary of the Army Environmental Award winners. Fort Stewart, categorized as a non-industrial installation, was judged on environmental quality.
Officials said the winning installations, which include Fort Bragg, Camp Guernsey, Letterkenney Army Depot and Camp Withycombe, have been innovative in their practices, protected endangered species, preserved historic sites and restored and sustained the environment.
Award winners will compete for the Secretary of Defense Environmental Awards later this year.
“The Army recognizes successes that demonstrate mission-driven solutions that protect the environment at installations here and overseas. Whatever we do needs to revolve around supporting the mission, taking care of our soldiers, civilians and families,” said Tad Davis, deputy assistant secretary of the Army for the environment, safety and occupational health. “In simplistic terms, the Army is building green, buying green and going green.”
