I am going to one of my units, 121st Assault Helicopter Company, Ft. Benning, Ga on April 28 through May 2. Is there any thing going on in that area or shops I might want to visit while I am there????

The Infantry Museum is absolutely a must see. It is first class and they are always adding new displays.  If you are looking for shops, try Ranger Joe's and also the Commando Store. Both are located on Victory Drive just off post. While you are on post, you might stop at Eubanks Field and watch Tower Training for the aspiring Jump school students.

Thanks for the information. I was stationed at ft. Benning 1972 through 1974 with the 121st ASH Co.

The Museum is on the Reunions list of things to do so I will not miss it. We are also going to Ft. Rucker for The Aviation Museum. First Reunion I have attended since retiring in 1988.

I will also make a trip to Ranger Joe's and also the Commando Store

Thanks Again,

Kaydees

Kaydees,  I would also recommend the National Civil War Naval Museum in Columbus.  Great display of uniforms, flags, original ships that were recovered from the local waterways.
