Holiday wishes from the Commanding General
From Maj. Gen. Eric J. Wesley, Commanding General, Fort Benning and the Maneuver Center of Excellence /
Dear Fort Benning Friends and Family,
My thanks goes out to all of you, serving at Fort Benning or supporting those who do, for your continued dedication during 2016.
Your hard work has served Fort Benning, the Maneuver Center of Excellence, the operational force, and the future of maneuver.
This past year, you have trained and provided over 65,000 Soldiers to the force and have been driving the development of our maneuver force of the future.
My sense is that 2017 will be a pivotal year as we solidify both concept and material development, as we adapt our program of instruction, and as we execute Soldier 2020, all with the implication of a new Administration.
In all of these areas, we will be at the forefront of the Army’s focus on readiness and development and preparation for the future.
But before we move into the New Year, we should all take this holiday season to spend quality time with our family and friends, reflect on our blessings, and rest to reconvene next year with renewed energy to our call. I hope you enjoy every moment of the holidays with your loved ones.
Thank you again for your dedication and have a Merry Christmas and wonderful Holiday Season! One Force, One Fight!
