Kingston Announces New HQ for Third ID

Congressman Jack Kingston announced yesterday that the Third Infantry Division will be getting a new $25 million headquarters and control complex next year. The 100,000 square foot complex will serve as headquarters for more than 400 soldiers and civilians.

That department is now housed in 15 different outdated buildings, dating back to World War II. The project was initially planned for 2008, but the Pentagon pushed it through for 2004.

"We think it's been moved up four years because of the great performance of Third ID in Iraq," said Kingston. "That might not necessarily be the reason, but I tell you what, it played into it a good deal, so we're all real proud of the role the Third ID played."

Congressman Kingston sits on the House Appropriations Military Construction Subcommittee. This has been a top priority for the Congressman and Fort Stewart.
