The Maneuver Center of Excellence (MCoE) and Fort Benning delivers trained and combat-ready soldiers and Leaders; develops and integrates the doctrine and capabilities of the Maneuver Force; all while providing a first-class quality of life for those assigned to or employed by Fort Benning, and their Families. The Fort Benning Garrison supports mission readiness and execution; enables the well-being of Soldiers, Civilians, Retirees, and their Family Members; improves infrastructure; and conserves the environment through the equitable, effective, and efficient management of 54 installation services.


Fort Benning collaborates with a multitude of local communities on comprehensive sustainability and through community partnerships in an effort to benefit the installation and the surrounding region. Sustained long-term growth results in changing land use that can threaten the use of installation training lands and possibly impact the quality of life in this region. Cooperation between Fort Benning and the surrounding community is beneficial for continuing to raise public awareness of Fort Benning’s Mission and support "Smart Growth."
