FORT GREGG-ADAMS, Va. (WRIC)– The former Fort Lee army post has been renamed Fort Gregg-Adams after two black officers and trailblazers in United States Army history in a redesignation ceremony.

Leaders unveiled the new Fort Gregg-Adams signs during a large ceremony on the post in a room full of military members, leaders and community members.

Fort Gregg-Adams is named after Lieutenant General Arthur Gregg and Lieutenant Colonel Charity Adams.

Lieutenant General Gregg was in attendance along with the children of Lieutenant Colonel Adams, Judith and Stanley Earley.
