  Fort Stewart - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fort Stewart is a census-designated place and U.S. Army post primarily located in Liberty County, Georgia, but also occupying significant portions of Bryan County, Georgia.
In 1959, Fort Stewart was redesignated as an Armor and Artillery Firing Center, since its old anti-aircraft ranges and impact areas were better suited for this purpose in the new age of missiles.
Fort Stewart saw a growing influx of National Guard and Reserve units who were being mobilized to support the operations in Saudi Arabia and to assume the tasks at the post which had formerly been accomplished by 24th Division personnel.

 FEMP New Technologies: Fort Stewart   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Based on the measured performance, the Seahorse gas hot water conversion technology demonstrated at Fort Stewart was estimated to net a life-cycle energy cost-savings of $778 for a typical residence at that site with a hot water consumption equivalent to 64.3 gallons/day of 135°F water.
