Now... before I am fallen upon for my attempting a bit of dry humor in the previous post, let me say that the poll was... um, somewhat flawed. The choice, "Other (I don't know)' operates as a sort of black hole for those of us who simply do not have access to Navy, Marine, Army and Air Force bases.

Here, I know Fort Benning but not as well as I used to. Security there has been tightened to a knot, so even going to a yard sale in housing is difficult anymore.

Maybe some background information on what the various services do offer would be more informative?

There are others, local to Columbus. they are not hard to find out about so I won't mention the names for privacy reasons.
Many deal with marksmanship and orienteering and others are leadership based.
