Congressional visit
MG Michael Ferriter, the Maneuver Center of Excellence commanding general, shows U.S. Rep. Sanford Bishop of Georgia a picture of former Fort Benning commanders, BG Courtney Hodges and BG Omar Bradley, Nov. 10 in Ferriter's office, which at one time was their office. Hodges immediately preceded Bradley, post commanding general from 1941 to 1942, as the commandant of the Infantry School. They are probably preparing for the change of responsibility in 1941. While on Fort Benning, Congressman Sanford Bishop visited Wilson Elementary Nov. 10. Sponsored by the Armed Forces Foundation and Operation Caring Classroom, a pen pal program Wilson participates in, his visit was in honor of Veterans Day. Bishop visited several classrooms, read to the students and explained what it means to be a representative. Wilson Partners in Education, the 197th Infantry Brigade, were involved in the activities.
