Defense Service Network (DSN) Dialing Instructions
The DSN is the provider of long-distance communications service for the Department of Defense (DoD). Every installation has a special DSN number and the numbers vary by world-wide location. In order to place a call using DSN, the caller must be using a military phone on an installation. Cell phones cannot dial DSN numbers. When dialing a DSN number from a United States installation to another United States installation, it is unnecessary to dial the DSN 312 area code. When dialing a DSN number to/from overseas locations, the DSN area code must be included. The operator can be reached at commercial (719) 567-1110. Please note that long distance charges may be incurred.
Our mission is to provide command, control, training, administration, logistical and civilian-military support to assigned and attached non-divisional units stationed at Fort Stewart/Hunter Army Airfield.
When the Air Force closed their base at Hunter Field in Savannah, in 1967, the Army promptly assumed control and the U.S. Army Flight Training Center was developed in conjunction with the flight training being conducted at Fort Stewart. The helicopter pilot training was rapidly accelerated and pilots were trained and soon sent to duty all over the world, with a large percentage seeing active duty in Viet Nam. After a brief closure at the end of the war in Viet Nam, HAAF was reopened when the 1st Battalion, 75th Infantry Regiment (Ranger), parachuted into Fort Stewart and reactivated it. Hunter Army Air Field assumed an important role supporting the training and activities of the Rangers. On October 30, 1998, the new Departure/Arrival Airfield Control Group (DAACG) facility, named the Truscott Air Terminal, was dedicated at HAAF. For more information, visit the Fort Stewart website.
