Two visits hosted by the installation's Community Outreach program keep community leaders abreast of issues of importance to our collective communities.
Mark Bush, a Training Instructor with Directorate of Plans, Training Mobilization and Security, shows members of the Coastal Regional Commission training aids used to expose Soldiers to the sights and sounds of combat. Twenty-five executive board members and staff of the CRC were invited to Fort Stewart to learn about training and maneuver requirements to keep 3rd ID Soldiers trained, and the importance of discouraging encroachment on the installations borders. The Coastal Regional Commission is the multi-county planning and development body serving ten coastal counties and 35 cities in Bryan, Bulloch, Camden, Chatham, Effingham, Glynn, Liberty, Long, McIntosh, and Screven counties.
