New Commander Arrives

Amid the burgeoning Savannah Harbor Expansion Project, Col. Marvin L. Griffin assumed command of the Savannah District at the Hyatt Regency Hotel on June 19.

It was a fitting tribute as the ceremony was held just blocks away from CSS Georgia recovery efforts currently underway near Old Fort Jackson.

Distinguished guests, family members and district employees packed the Regency Ballroom as Col. Thomas J. Tickner concluded his two-year tenure with the district.

I couldn’t be prouder of the Savannah District,” Tickner said. “I had the privilege to watch as this district advanced SHEP into its construction phase – a historic moment for Georgia and the entire Southeast.”

As Tickner readies for a deployment to Afghanistan, he recognized the district as an economic engine for the U.S. ready to move into the future.

We’ve reached just tip of the iceberg when it comes to the national transportation system,” said Tickner. “This region has invested heavily in making the Southeast an economic engine for the United States.

“Infrastructure such as rail, roads, intermodal facilities, distribution hubs have brought commerce creating the need for a deeper, more efficient port. We have already seen private investment and foreign investment in to the region. This is what will help jump start the economy.”

The Savannah District maintains the deep water harbors in Savannah and Brunswick, Georgia, and it leads the effort to deepen the Savannah harbor.

The District manages a multimillion dollar military construction program at 11 Army and Air Force installations in Georgia and North Carolina, and oversees water resources and development activities in Georgia and portions of South Carolina.
