Welcome to the Glory’s Guns Battalion,
1st Battalion, 41st Field Artillery is a highly disciplined team led by agile, adaptive leaders, fully committed to mastering its Field Artillery competencies and supporting 1st HBCT, 3rd Infantry Division. It is a great unit, supported by fantastic Families and civilians, with a proud history of providing trained and disciplined Soldiers in support of the Nation whenever called. Within the Battalion, we are proud of this history and strive daily to represent its lineage well.
We are fortunate to be a part of the Fort Stewart community. Coastal Georgia is a wonderful area in which to live. We are only minutes from historic Savannah, and just a short drive from Hilton Head, South Carolina to the north and Jacksonville, Florida to the south. There are multiple beaches nearby, and there are many activities, both on and off post, for Soldiers and Families.
The support of Families and the community is integral to our success. To help foster a strong relationship with Families and the community, we leverage family readiness groups and a Facebook. There you can find pictures and stories of our activities, as well as announcements of a number of events happening on Fort Stewart and in the local community. I also employ a Twitter account to share photos, thoughts, or announcements that are important to our Soldiers, Families, and friends. If you don’t follow Twitter, my postings are also linked to the Battalion’s Facebook page.
You are important. As a Soldier that volunteered to serve our Nation while at war, a Family member that keeps a Soldier strong, or a friend of the unit, your support underpins our success. Whether this is your first assignment or if you have moved a number of times, we are glad you are here. Welcome to Glory’s Guns and Fort Stewart!
