Lawmakers trying to bring more troops to the Savannah area

FT. STEWART, GA (WTOC) - Senators Johnny Isakson and Saxby Chambliss, along with Congressman Jack Kingston all signed a letter asking the Pentagon for a new brigade for Fort Stewart.

The Pentagon plans on moving an entire combat brigade from Germany to the states in 2015.

Liberty County and Hinesville spent millions making room for the 5th Brigade, which ultimately got scrapped by Army officials back in 2009.
