A former Fort Gordon garrison commander who has devoted his time to promoting the Army installation has been honored by the Columbia County Chamber of Commerce with its Lifetime Achievement Award.
Thom Tuckey, the executive director of the CSRA Alliance for Fort Gordon, received the award at the chamber’s ninth annual banquet Tuesday night at the Columbia County Exhibition Center.
Tuckey said he was humbled by the honor.
“I do what I do because I love to serve soldiers,” he said. “That’s something that this community does really well.”
