“It’s an exciting time to visit Fort Gordon and see the growth of the base as they work to train and equip the next generation of cyber warriors,” said Senator Perdue. “With the Army Cyber Center of Excellence, NSA Georgia, Georgia Cyber Center, and soon, the Army Cyber Command, Augusta has established itself as the nation’s cybersecurity capital. Our adversaries have proven they are committed to using cyberwarfare to attack our economy and threaten our national security. We must be prepared, and advancements here in Georgia help our military respond to this rapidly emerging threat. Thank you to the men and women of Fort Gordon and the Augusta community for all you do for our country.” 

“I thank Senator Perdue for his visit to Fort Gordon – it is always a great opportunity when members of Congress have a chance to see first-hand our servicemen and women conducting operations and training as well as the tremendous mission growth occurring at Fort Gordon,” said Maj. Gen. John B. Morrison, Jr., U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence and Fort Gordon Commanding General.  “We are very appreciative for all the support our Army and Fort Gordon receives from Congress.”
