27 April 2023: Fort Lee, VA – In a ceremony on April 27, Fort Lee, VA, home of the US Army’s Sustainment Center of Excellence, was re-designated by the Congressional

Naming Commission to Fort Gregg-Adams in honor of two Black officers who excelled in the field of sustainment and achieved significance in U.S. Army history.

Lt. Gen. Arthur J. Gregg (Ret.) rose from the rank of private to three-star general during his military logistics career, which began just after WWII and spanned nearly

36 years. Gregg, now 94, is the only living person in modern Army history to have an installation named after him. Gregg is the Chairman Emeritus of SA-TECH’s Advisory Board and has been a member since 1997.

Lt. Col. Charity Adams was the first Black officer in the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps – later known as the Women’s Army Corps – in World War II and led the first predominately Black WAC unit to serve overseas: the storied 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion.

“We are deeply honored to have Lt. Gen. Arthur Gregg and Lt. Col. Charity Adams as the new namesakes for our installation,” said Maj. Gen. Mark Simerly, commanding general of the U.S. Army Combined Arms Support Command and senior commander of Fort Lee.

Upon learning a few months ago that Fort Lee would be re-named for him, Gregg warmly smiled and said, “I had a very strong connection with Fort Lee throughout my career – it’s clearly one of my favorite posts in the Army, and I couldn’t be happier or more honored.”

Speaking at the re-dedication ceremony, Gregg thanked his late wife, his family and his mentors in the Army, including his platoon sergeant all the way back from basic training. “His teaching and personal example served me well during my career,” Gregg said.
