“It was an honor to meet Major General Brito and welcome him back to Fort Benning and the Columbus region. Like thousands of our finest women and men, Major General Brito trained at Fort Benning and went on to serve our country with distinction. This year, we celebrate 100 years of excellence at Fort Benning, and I could not be more confident that the base, its soldiers, and their families will continue to thrive for years under Major General Brito’s leadership.”

On April 26, 2018, Senators Perdue and Isakson (R-GA) introduced a Senate resolution recognizing the 100th anniversary of Fort Benning.


Senator Perdue is the only Fortune 500 CEO in Congress and is serving his first term in the United States Senate, where he represents Georgia on the Armed Services, Banking, Budget, and Agriculture Committees.
