Fort Benning provides resources for military families

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Service members and their families now have a better understanding of the resources available to them.

The Better at Benning Expo took place Friday at Fort Benning.

The information fair put in the spotlight the many events, organizations, and resources available on post.

This is an annual event for service members in the Valley. Bridgett Siter at Fort Benning explains why the event is hosted once a year.

"Although we offer a newcomers orientation every week, every Wednesday...This event is once a year. We host it in the summer- about the time the kids head back to school because the summer is our big change in population- families are leaving Ft Benning- families are coming to Ft Benning," said Bridgett Siter, the Fort Benning MWR Director.

Those looking for a job also got the chance to meet some employers at a career fair.
