Lt. Gen. Donald M. Campbell Jr., commander of III Corps and Fort Hood, will host the Army's first interactive town hall Thursday.

Participants can phone in or send questions through Facebook to Campbell and dozens of other experts to foster better communication between senior post officials and the Fort Hood community, said the general.

"What I want to accomplish through this town hall is to provide a direct and transparent line between me and the Fort Hood community," he said. "If there are issues and concerns that we need to look at, I want to know about them."

Equally, Campbell said he hopes to educate family members and civilians on some of the services already in place to address their needs.

He encouraged participation.

"This effort is unprecedented," said Campbell. "It's important for our military community to hear from its leaders, but it's equally important that we hear from them."

Fort Hood officials will begin taking and answering questions through Facebook at 5 p.m.

At 6 p.m., Campbell, Col. Patrick Sargent, commander of Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center, and Fort Hood housing officials will appear in a live video feed of the town hall, answering Facebook and call-in questions.

The town hall will be viewable on the III Corps and Fort Hood Facebook at facebook.com/forthood.

A number to call in questions will be released early in the week, according to information from Fort Hood.
