- The Landings community, a Savannah community with many veterans, supports their Military and their Families in a big way. Since April of 2007, the people of the Landings have donated $538,444.30 to the LMFRF (Landing’s Military Family Relief Fund). The Fund has helped over 1,300 "individuals" through 317 Grants.
Savannah is perhaps one of the friendliest host communities to our nation’s military. Hunter Army Airfield is one of our fullest power projection platforms and in addition to being home to the 3rd Infantry Divisions Aviation Brigade; it is home to one of the famed Special Operations Aviation Battalions (SOAR) also known as the “Night Stalkers”, as well as to a full Ranger Battalion. Just down the road is the largest military reservation east of the Mississippi, FT. Stewart, home of the famed 3rd Infantry Division, The Rock of the Marne, Audie Murphy’s Division, was distinguished recently as the tip of the spear, in leading the charge into Bagdad.
Coastal Georgia is home to 25,000 soldiers and their dependent families (approximately 38,000) who make up 20% of the population of Savannah and Liberty County.
Brigadier General Jeffrey E. Phillips, Deputy Commanding General-Rear, 3rd Infantry Division called the LMFRF a force enabler for the Soldiers and Families of Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield. The General presented the Board with a personal letter crafted to express his feelings for The Landings on behalf of the Marne Family.
The Landings also prides itself in providing three Red Cross teams that are available around the clock to see troops deployed and to welcome them home after their tour.
The Landings Community has received many commendations from the military as well as local, state, and Federal recognition, including a Senate Resolution presented by Senator Eric Johnson.
