Here are a few questions that were answered during the Fort Hood Facebook Town Hall:
Lena Marie Reed-Sullivan asked, “Is there a list of protected species online for Fort Hood?”
- III Corps and Fort Hood answered, “Thanks for your interest in Fort Hood’s natural resources. We have two migratory birds that are protected under the Endangered Species Act. They are the Black Capped Vireo (BCV) and the Golden Cheeked Warbler (GCW). Both of these typically nest on post from March to June each year.”
Carla Clark asked, “We are about to ets, housing said our grass needs to be green with no dead grass or we will get charged. Please tell me how is this possible with this Texas heat? Thank you!”
- III Corps and Fort Hood answered, “Unless there is evidence of occupant abuse the resident will not be charged for dead grass. In accordance with Fort Hood Regulation 210-48 watering of your yard is allowed except from 1-5 p.m. daily.”
Audrey Ford asked, “Will the soldiers be getting a christmas bonus?”
- III Corps and Fort Hood answered, “Soldiers do not receive monetary Christmas bonuses, however they are afforded a half-day schedule through the holiday season.”
