FORT BENNING PROMOTES THAT GUY ON
- AND OFF - THE POST

Looking to bring That Guy to your installation? Take a page from the creative and enthusiastic That Guy team at Fort Benning:

Fort Benning embraced the campaign with gusto by distributing the free giveaways and materials around the installation and community. The Fort Benning team reports that one of the most coveted items on post are the That Guy playing cards; they ensured that returning 3d Brigade Soldiers received these in their Welcome Home bags. The Morale Welfare and Recreation team placed That Guy coasters and posters in every MWR facility on post and also linked to the That Guy Web site from the MWR site. The Public Affairs Office included a full-page That Guy advertisement in the post newspaper, The Bayonet, in June and will soon be running the That Guy cartoons. The Army Substance Abuse Program at Fort Benning is offering soldiers 30 minutes of substance abuse training credit for visiting the That Guy Web site. And off-post, the Fort Benning ASAP Risk Reduction Program staff distributed materials to local bars and restaurants frequented by their soldiers.
