FORT BENNING, GA (WTVM) – Actor Mark Wahlberg made a stop at Fort Benning Saturday to meet with soldiers and their families.

The actor signed autographs and took pictures as he walked through the Fort Benning exchange.

Wahlberg is currently filming a movie in Atlanta and says he decided to make the drive down to Fort Benning because it is the least he could do in return for soldiers.

“Anytime I see anyone who is brave enough to sign up and fight for our country, it’s more than enough to inspire me. It’s a beautiful thing,” says Wahlberg.
