COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Senator Johnny Isakson toured four Georgia military bases on Sept. 3 and Sept. 4, including Fort Benning.

Isakson received mission updates with officials at Robins Air Force Base in Warner Robins, GA, Fort Gordon in Augusta, GA and Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Marietta, GA.

He will be joined by U.S. Reps. Tom Graves, Austin Scott, Sanford Bishop and Lynn Westmoreland, at various stops during the two-day tour.

These visits follow a series of D.C. based meetings that Isakson has led with senior Pentagon officials from each of the branches of the armed services. These meetings discussed the importance of Georgia-based equities and assets, and the critical roles each play in our national defense.
