When Brig. Gen. Paul Stanton took command at Fort Gordon, he soon realized the iconic Signal Towers complex would be demolished on his watch.
“I had a pit in my stomach,” Stanton said Friday to a large crowd of soldiers, civilian Department of the Army employees and retirees who attended an afternoon ceremony to mark the end of an era on Fort Gordon.
“I was going to be responsible for bringing down the iconic symbol of the Signal Corps,” he added.
But the one-star general said he soon learned the 54-year-old building would be replaced by a modernized Signal and cyber headquarters and campus for the men and women learning communication skills and computer network defense.
