FORT HOOD — Civilian employees at Fort Hood gathered for some fun in the sun Friday as directorates competed in a barbecue competition.
“It’s a great time to take a knee and reflect on the accomplishments we’ve had,” said Col. Matt Elledge, garrison commander. “We’re such a diverse organization. It’s always a neat deal to get everybody together.”
Last year’s barbecue was canceled because of budget constraints, but this year employees filled the Sportsmen’s Center pavilion. Fort Hood Radio played music while people danced, played bocce ball and tossed horseshoes.
“It’s a good day with good sunshine,” said Robert Johnson, a graphic illustrator with the Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation.
