3rd ID soldiers bid farewell to Brig. Gen. John Hort


Soldiers from the Third Infantry Division assembled in Marine Garden on Fort Stewart on Friday to bid farewell to Brig. Gen. John Hort, who served as the deputy commanding general.

Hort's new assignment will be the Senior Operations Officer for U.S. Army Europe G-3 in Germany.

He will report to his new assignment in a few weeks.

Brig. Gen. Hort said Fort Stewart has been his best assignment thus far in his 30 year career in the Army.

"We're not a lot about ahuh, we're about do ah, and that is what I've seen in the last two years as the Third Infantry Division, Rock of the Marne with its local community and partnership," said Hort. "We truly are the rock of the Army in terms of our work ethics and everything that we do to take care of our soldiers and their families."

Brig. Gen. James Blackburn will take his place. He is moving from Afghanistan.
