Undersecretary of the Army Patrick Murphy met with Savannah District leaders to tour significant projects on August 11. Murphy took an aerial tour of the Savannah Harbor as part of his visit to Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield in Georgia. The Savannah District is responsible for maintaining the Savannah har-bor and is in the process of deepening it an additional five feet to better accommodate larger, post-Panamax container ships, as part of the Savannah Harbor Expansion Project (SHEP).
