Marine Detachment, Ft. Benning
Fort Benning, GA
Marine Corps Detachment Fort Benning has a very particular mission – create the Marine Corps’ future M1A1 Tank and Assault Breacher Vehicle operators and crewmen. Additionally, all Marines attending Jump School (Reconnaissance, Raiders, Logistics Officers and Aerial Delivery) will pass through the Army Jump School at Fort Benning.
In the coming years, M1A1 Tank Operators and their follow-on schools will cease to operate due to the lifecycle of the M1A1 tank ending for the United States Marine Corps.
