Editorial Salute 8/1/13

Posted: Updated:

Major-General Robert "Abe" Abrams, Commanding General of the Army's Third Infantry Division, stationed at Fort Stewart, Hunter, and Fort Benning, turns over command of the division on Friday morning, August 2nd.  He's just recently returned from a one-year assignment as Regional Command-South Commander of the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan.  From here, General Abrams will move to the Pentagon, where he'll pin on a third-star as a Lieutenant-General, and begin his tour as Senior Military Assistant to the Secretary of Defense.  This is a huge move, and a prestigious one, and, in our view, there's no one better suited to execute this assignment to perfection than General Abrams.  On behalf of the citizens of Hinesville, Savannah, and all of our great surrounding communities, we thank you, sir, for your service to the Third Division, and for your continuing even-higher-level service to our nation.  We wish the very best to  you and Connie for continued happiness and great success in Washington.  You will both truly be missed, by all of us, here in Coastal Georgia…………
