Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield combine to provide the nation with a trained, equipped, and ready fighting force, composed of the 3rd Infantry Division and non-divisional and tenant units, capable of deploying anywhere in the world in support of National Objectives.
As a training and power projection platform, Fort Stewart/Hunter Army Airfield trains, equips, deploys and redeploys both early deploying and follow-on Active Component (AC) Army units; and mobilizing, training, equipping, deploying and redeploying Reserve Component (RC) (Army National Guard (NG) and Army Reserve (AR) units and soldiers.
Hunter Army Airfield is home to units of the 3d Infantry Division, including the "Marne Division's" Aviation Brigade.
A myriad of non-divisional and tenant units are also based on Hunter. Combined with Fort Stewart, Hunter Army Airfield provides the Nation a world-class heavy power projection platform. Hunter's 11,375-foot-long runway supports the installation's rapid deployment needs as any aircraft, including the C-5 Galaxy, can land at Hunter. Hunter Army Airfield has a unique distinction as being identified as an alternate landing site for NASA's space shuttles.
Additionally, with more than 350 acres of hardstand, 50 C-17 Globemaster aircraft can be on the ground simultaneously. With a state-of-the-art Departure/Arrival Airfield Control Group (DAACG) Facility, soldiers and cargo can be deployed efficiently and responsively from a premier deployment facility.
Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield has consistently proven its rapid deployment capabilities in recent operations including the 1991 Gulf War and subsequent deployments to Egypt, Kuwait, Bosnia, and Kosovo; and, most recently to operations in Afghanistan and Iraq.
