JOINT BASE ANACOSTIA-BOLLING –
Today, DIA Director Lt. Gen. Scott Berrier and Phyllis Stewart unveiled the Lieutenant General Vincent R. Stewart DIA Museum at the conclusion of a moving remembrance ceremony honoring Lt. Gen. Vincent Stewart, who served as DIA’s 20th director from January 2015 to October 2017.
“Vince fought for this museum and what it represents,” said Berrier. “Today, we honor Vince’s commitment to telling DIA’s story by renaming the museum to the Lieutenant General Vincent R. Stewart Museum.”
Exceeding 10,000 square feet, the Lieutenant General Vincent R. Stewart DIA Museum includes 44 exhibits, dozens of artifacts, eight interactive displays, six missiles, mannequins, and many videos to convey six decades of DIA history and honor the DIA workforce. The museum is closed to the general public, but open to the DIA workforce and cleared visitors.
During Stewart’s tenure as DIA director, the Agency established the Office of the Deputy Director for Commonwealth Integration, initiated planning for what is now the Lieutenant General Vincent R. Stewart DIA Museum, and pivoted away from counterterrorism to focus on broad-spectrum threats from near-peer competitors. Stewart was also DIA’s first Black director, and DIA’s first director from the U.S. Marine Corps.
