The mission is challenging, we are not called the "Marne Express" for nothing, but you will find that the rewards are great - we are based in a beautiful part of the country, and our neighbors in Hinesville, Liberty County, and the Coastal Empire are better than anyone you could ask for. We enjoy a great relationship with the city of Hinesville, which is our closest neighbor, and Savannah is only a 40-minute ride from post.
