Fort Benning announced in a press release that it will hold two events to sell off used property to the public in September. Both will be held at the property warehouse, Building 2384 on Prussman Street.

There will be no previews, and the sealed bids will be opened Sept. 15.
The second is a general used merchandise sale (not an auction) Sept. 19-20. It will be open only to active duty and retired service members on Sept. 19 from 9 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. After that, the sale opens to the public. There will be no preview days, as this is not an auction.
Merchandise will include furniture from child care centers, appliances and cookware, basketball goals, gym equipment and furniture.
