    Hi "Hacksaw,"
    I contacted Fort Hood about your comment and received the following response:

    "All allegations of incidents and wrong doing in the anonymous claim are unfounded," according to Fort Hood aviation officials. "The FAA has never shut down UAS operations at Fort Hood for any incident involving interference with commercial aircraft."

    Feel free to contact me directly if you have any further issues or questions about the reporting of this story. rthayer@kdhnews.com or 254-501-7463.

    The article was great until they got to that part about "incident free". What about when the FAA shut them down because one of the unmanned aircraft interfered with an American Eagle flight?
    Guess we forgot about that one.

    Great article that shows a major initiative that our region should embrace for potential business growth. Working with the professionals like Bob and Ron was one of the highlights of my time at Fort Hood. Amazing Department of Army civilians who are leading the Army's direction for UAS.
