Georgia U.S. Senators Johnny Isakson and David Perdue this week joined Congressman Buddy Carter, R-Savannah in urging U.S. Army Secretary Mark Esper to consider Fort Stewart as home to the U.S. Army’s new 16th Armored Brigade Combat Team.

“Fort Stewart is the premier power projection platform on the East Coast, and there is no place in the Army where it is less expensive for combat soldiers to live, train, and deploy. It maintains the largest base east of the Mississippi River with a digital, multi-purpose range complex with training land available for two brigade combat teams to conduct training maneuvers concurrently year-round,” wrote Isakson, Perdue, and Carter in a letter dated Monday.
