God Bless Fort Benning moving uptown with celebration and headquarters

"God Bless Fort Benning," an annual event that honors soldiers and their families, is moving to Uptown Columbus.

The non-profit organization is also relocating its headquarters to the former Cumbaa Boot & Shoe Co., 1106 Broadway, in Columbus and expects to hold its November celebration on the downtown median.

With construction planned this fall on the parking lot around the Columbus Civic Center, "God Bless Fort Benning" had to seek a new home.
