WHY SHOULD CONSIDER THIS TOUR/BRIEFING

The tour will be focused on an overview of Ft Benning and its mission.  It will also include an overview of how a company can get a product looked at and a requirement created for that product to be purchased by the military.  The Maneuver Battle Lab and the MOUT site are key to this process.  We will also have a briefing on how to do business with the military by one of the Army’s key experts.  If you own, run or work for a company with interest in having a product picked for use or in winning a contract, you will not want to miss this event.
 
Ft Benning

Fort Benning is a United States Army post outside Columbus, Georgia. Fort Benning supports more than 120,000 active-duty military, family members, reserve component soldiers, retirees, and civilian employees on a daily basis. It is a power projection platform, and possesses the capability to deploy combat-ready forces by air, rail, and highway. Fort Benning is the home of the United States Army Maneuver Center of Excellence, the United States Army Armor School, United States Army Infantry School, the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation, elements of the 75th Ranger Regiment, 3rd Brigade – 3rd Infantry Division, and many other additional tenant units.

It is named after Henry L. Benning, who served the Confederate States Army during the Civil War.

The Maneuver Center of Excellence provides trained agile, adaptive Soldiers and leaders ready to operate across the range of military operations; develops doctrine and capabilities for the Maneuver Force and the individual Soldier to ensure our Army's Maneuver Forces are fully prepared to "Win in a Complex World."

National Infantry Museum – If you have not seen the museum, please plan to come early or stay after and visit it as well.  The National Infantry Museum is one of the finest military museums in the entire country.  It is a Smithsonian level museum, and if you like military museums, it is something you will not want to miss.  There is also a very nice restaurant, The Fife and Drum, located in the museum.  If you want lunch prior to the tour, this is a great place.
