The Commissary and Main Exchange are co-located in a central location in close proximity to the new Martin Army Community Hospital, a state-of-the-art full service medical center, housing all family and specialty clinics, pharmacy and a 24/7 emergency room.

Five schools are nestled in the neighborhoods on Fort Benning and serve approximately 2,000 students. The Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) oversees the four elementary schools and one middle school, which are part of the DoDEA Americas’ Southeast District. DoDEA’s number top priority for students is College and Career Readiness (CCR).
