New Family Readiness Center Opens on Fort Stewart

There's something new for some of our military, especially Third Infantry Division and 48th Brigade families with troops overseas. A new Family Readiness Center at is open at Fort Stewart. We were there for the ribbon cutting today.

The center features computers equipped with web cameras so that spouses can record video emails for soldiers overseas, and a TV lounge where families can come together. There's even a classroom for meetings and training.

"We don't have it completed yet, but we're putting a video teleconference facility in here as well, which will allow them to actually see their service member in theater," said garrison commander Col. John Kidd.

They also broke ground on a new, bigger Army Community Service building to provide various family assistance programs on the home front.
