Savannah Car Rentals is Proud to Offer a Military Discount
The Savannah area is home to several military bases, each having contributed in unique ways
to the history of the region, the state of Georgia, and to the United States itself. That fact is not
lost on Savannah Car Rentals, and we are proud to offer a military discount to active duty
Hunter Army Airfield and Fort Stewart have been serving the United States for decades and
continue to do so with their various military operations to this day. Whether you’re visiting the
Savannah area, or you’ve lived here all your life, take a minute to appreciate our region’s
military history, especially as Veteran’s Day quickly approaches…
❖ Hunter Army Airfield: Hunter is located in Savannah but is a subordinate installation of
nearby Fort Stewart. Named after Lt. Col. Frank Hunter, a famous WWI pilot, Hunter is
known in part for its exceptionally long runway (almost 11,400 feet). For this reason, it
was actually considered as a possible landing site for several Space Shuttle missions.
Among other groups, the Savannah Coast Guard Air Station operates out of Hunter to
keep our coasts and waterways safe.
❖ Fort Stewart: Fort Stewart is home to several thousand servicemembers and is located
southwest of Savannah in Hinesville, Ga. It was named after Brig. Gen. Daniel Stewart,
a hero of the American Revolution. Fort Stewart housed POW’s during WWII as well as
the Anti-Aircraft Artillery Center. Later on, it was a staging area for divisions responding
to the Cuban Missile Crisis. Today is home to the 3rd Infantry Division.
❖ Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay: Just two hours south of Savannah is Naval
Submarine Base Kings Bay. Kings Bay was first an Army base that also staged service
members during the Cuban Missile Crisis and became a Navy installation in the 1970s. It
began housing Trident missile submarines in the 1980s and does so to this day, in
addition to also being the home of the Trident Training Facility and the Marine Corps
Security Force Battalion.
❖ Moody Air Force Base: Moody is three hours southwest of Savannah located near
Valdosta, Ga. During WWII it was primarily a training location, and today it is home to
the 23rd Wing Combat Search and Rescue group.
