 Fort Benning’s big change of command ceremony Tuesday brought back a lot of thoughts about Fort Benning. My connection with the post goes back to the 1930’s so I do have somewhat of a historic perspective about it.  The fact that it’s no longer to be called the “home of the infantry,” but is becoming the Maneuver Center of Excellence is really a big deal.  I’ll explain my feelings about it tomorrow.  Why tomorrow instead of today? Sometimes personal considerations trump blogging, but I’ll be back tomorrow. Stay tuned.
