    Cyber Command staff sergeant at Fort Eisenhower pleads guilty to illegal firearm charge

    By Alexandra Koch, Augusta Chronicle,


    A Fort Eisenhower staff sergeant assigned to the Army Cyber Command is awaiting sentencing after admitting to having illegal and unregistered weapons.

    Thomas J. Fazio II, 41, of Grovetown, pleaded guilty to possession of an unregistered firearm, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of Georgia.

    In May 2023, Homeland Security investigations and Customs and Border Protection intercepted suspected firearms silencers being shipped to Fazio, according to the release.

    During a search of Fazio's home, investigators found multiple firearms including an illegal short-barrel assault-style rifle and an unregistered firearm silencer, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

    Fort Eisenhower U.S. Army Cyber Command confirmed Fazio is a soldier currently assigned to "ARCYBER," but said further inquiries needed to be directed to the Department of Justice.
