SAVANNAH, GA. — Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah has a new top officer taking charge.

A change of command ceremony is scheduled Wednesday to install Lt. Col. Clarence Bowman as the Army post’s new garrison commander. He will succeed Lt. Col. Edward Kovaleski, who held the job for two years.

Hunter Army Airfield covers more than 5,300 acres in Savannah and is home to aviation units of the 3rd Infantry Division based at nearby Fort Stewart as well as other tenant units including elite Army Rangers and special operations helicopter crews.

Hunter’s garrison commander reports to the command at Fort Stewart.

The Savannah airfield is set up to efficiently deploy troops overseas. Its 11,340-foot runway is the longest of any Army post east of the Mississippi River.
