The Fort Moore In-Processing and Replacement Operations focuses on the installation in-processing requirements and individual Soldier readiness verification. AG Military Personnel Division (MPD) organizes the various installation agencies needed to welcome permanent party Soldiers and their Families to Fort Moore.
During the first full day of in-processing, all Soldiers/Service Members are required to attend a 4 hour session (0800-1200) that involves briefings given by AG MPD, DENTAC, MEDPROS, TRICARE, CID, On and Off-Housing, and Finance. Upon completion of these sessions, Soldiers/Service Members receive an in-processing schedule designed for each individual Soldier’s requirement for Fort Moore. Soldiers/Service Members will then proceed to complete other in-processing requirements identified on their in-processing schedule. Overall, it takes on average of 5 - 10 duty days based on your requirements. Other in-processing requirements will be conducted at the unit of assignment (i.e., Central Issue Facility, Security Clearance, etc.).
Mandatory Agencies include: DENTAC, MEDPROS, ON-POST HOUSING, OFF-POST HOUSING, FINANCE, Army Community Service, NEWCOMERS ORIENTATION, SPONSORSHIP, FINANCIAL READINESS TRAINING (1ST TERM SOLDIERS ON 1ST PCS), Resiliency and AG MPD.
Service Members that are approved for PTDY at their losing unit will take their PTDY and report to the gaining unit at the end of their leave as long as it is before their report day.
If you are arriving on Fort Moore to attend training or schools, in processing of Students and Trainees is coordinated by the Commander operating the course of instruction that the Soldier/Service Member is attending.
Living on post has advantages and is currently in high demand. Due to high occupancy and ongoing renovations, Soldiers and Families arriving at the installation should expect extended wait times of up to six months. To set expectations, door-to-door moves are highly unlikely. Click here to see current wait times and post housing fast facts.
The installation participates in the Residential Communities Initiative program conducted by the Department of Army.
The Army has chosen a private sector management and development partner, Clark Realty Capital and Michaels Management Services (Villages at Fort Moore) to serve as property managers of the installation’s 11 family housing communities. They also perform the renovation and remediation of existing historical housing.
Post’s Housing Division is a branch of the Directorate of Public Works and provides oversight of the Villages of Benning while also advocating for Soldiers and their Families in housing matters.
The life, health and safety of our residents is our top priority. This means we strive every day to improve the quality of life for both you and your families by investing our time to address any and all concerns.
On-post residents who are experiencing concerns or issues that Villages of Benning is unable to address, can contact the Emergency Housing Hotline at (706) 626-2002. A housing advocate is available 24/7.
For more information call the Housing Division at (706) 545-3921
Arriving Soldiers and their Families desiring to live on the installation are encouraged to contact the Villages at Fort Moore upon immediate notification of assignment to this installation.
For more information about the Villages at Fort Moore, call (706) 685-3939.
The installation is nestled in the heart of the South, with proximity to many of the country's most well-known destinations like Atlanta, Savannah, Panama City Beach and the Blue Ridge Mountains. We are located in an area commonly known as the "Tri-Community", comprised of Columbus, Georgia and the installation and Phenix City, Alabama.

Fort Moore's new Martin Army Community Hospital opened in November 2014. The total project cost approximately $500 Million and has 745,000 Square Feet, which is double the size of the old hospital.
The new facility is a contemporary world-class hospital which provides improved health and welfare to the 90,000-plus Soldiers, Family Members and Retirees of the Fort Moore community. The world-class hospital looks like no other building on Fort Moore. The modern structure has a visually stunning entryway, as well as numerous healing gardens and walking paths surrounded by indigenous plants. Upon arrival at the new facility, parking is readily available and in close proximity to the building for both patients and staff. Patients and visitors have a dedicated four-level parking structure. Staff members have a dedicated five-level parking structure and have keyless access into the hospital. Three healing gardens provide serene outdoor environments for visitors and staff to step away from the activity inside the hospital. The central garden has a 50-foot high water wall that flows into a 125 foot-long stream. This feature fills the area with ambient noise and the tranquil sound of running water. Careful consideration was used to select the materials used throughout the project. To help reduce energy consumption, increased insulation reduces heating and cooling requirements. Daylight sensors, occupancy switches and LED lighting provides energy efficiency. Similar stringent decision-making also took place regarding the incorporation and maintenance of the flora on the hospital grounds. A green roof consisting of low maintenance, drought resistant vegetation assists with temperature control of the hospital. Key features include a comfortable environment that meets today's medical needs and focuses on tomorrow's medicine, outfitted with state-of the-art medical technology. The hospital has the finest testing and diagnostic equipment to maintain the well-being of our nation's Soldiers and their Families. The larger, optimized design of the new facility is separated into two sections, one for inpatient care and one for outpatient and wellness services. Consolidated, interdependent clinics and specialties are now under one roof and offer an enhanced medical experience. The new construction combines intuitive patient flow and evidence-based design elements with Leadership Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) requirements. The new energy efficient systems make Martin Army Community Hospital one of the most energy efficient hospitals in the United States. The Soldiers, Family Members and Retirees receive care in a world-class medical facility with a superior staff. Staffing has also grown since the opening to provide enhanced services.
We recently became partners with the Central Alabama Veterans Health Care System (CAVHCS) on Fort Moore. One of the hospital's external buildings is now the Fort Moore VA Clinic. Veterans entitled to health care at the VA can be seen at the clinic. Martin Army Community Hospital provides ancillary services such as Radiology, Labs and Pharmacy. Limited surgical services are available.
Active Duty soldiers reporting to sick call are not required to have an appointment. Simply report to the assigned TMC at the appropriate time with a signed Sick Call Slip. Sick Call times vary with each clinic. Check for TMC sick call times in the Primary Care portion of this book. All other appointments are made through the CARE Line.
Sponsors must ensure that DEERS information for their Families is up-to-date. Active-duty Soldiers will complete TRICARE enrollment during in-processing. Family members can be enrolled at www.tricare.mil or by calling 1-800-444-5445.
Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP)
Children with medical issues requiring more than basic medical care are mandated to enroll in EFMP. Sponsors need to have a DA Form 5888 completed by the child's primary care manager (PCM). The EFMP office is next door to the Peds Too Clinic in the hospital's first-floor clinic wing.
Pregnant patients are seen in either the Family Medical Home or OB/GYN Clinic once enrolled for care at MACH. Patients may participate in the hospital's new Centering Pregnancy program - care with a provider and a midwife.
School Screenings, Physicals and Immunizations
Students enrolling in Georgia and Alabama schools for the first time require certain screenings. Georgia requires a Certificate of Immunization (Form 3231 Revised) and a completed Vision, Hearing and Dental Certificate (DHR Form 3300). Alabama requires a Certificate of Immunization (IMM-50). Call 762-408-2273 for appointments for these enrollment screenings as well as appointments for school and sports physicals.
