CG honors fallen in Dallas


DALLAS - On a day when the nation stopped to honor the fallen who paid the ultimate sacrifice, Lt. Gen. Sean MacFarland, commanding general, III Corps and Fort Hood, shared a personal story with the nearly 2,000 people in attendance at the Memorial Day ceremony at the Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery Monday.

Speaking before a crowd that included Gold Star Families, veterans of World War II, the Vietnam War, the Korean War, Operation Desert Shield/Storm and Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom, MacFarland said he understood the pain of losing troops in combat - and he could have easily been one such buried in a cemetery.

"In 2006, on a hot June morning, Sgt. Terry Lisk and I were at an intersection in downtown Ramadi, Iraq, when a 120mm mortar shell landed near us," he said. "The exploding shell was a microcosm of human conflict: violent and unfair. A chunk of steel from the shell flew through the air and lodged into the right side of his chest just beneath his arm. He stopped breathing and died a few minutes later, and I am here to tell you his story."

BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SYMPOSIUM

As part of Behavioral Health Month, Carl R.

EXCHANGE FOCUS GROUP

For the second consecutive year, Fort Hood will host the Army & Air Force Exchange Service's Military Brat Approved toy focus group. This year's activities will take place at the High Chaparral Youth Center June 17. The Fort Hood Exchange is looking for military dependent children within the following age ranges to participate June 17 at the following times:
· 9-10:30 a.m. (ages 3 to 5)
· 12:30-2 p.m. (ages 6 to 9)
· 3-4:30 p.m. (ages 10 to 12)
Parents interested in signing their children up for a chance to participate need to stop by the Clear Creek Main Store office, located inside by Fort Hood National Bank, no later than June 1. Participants will be randomly selected using a lottery drawing. Both parents or a legal guardian of selected participants must sign a video/photograph release form as names and/or images may be shared on social media. Additionally, a parent or legal guardian must remain present with their child for the duration of the event. The Military Brat Approved program began in 2014, when the Exchange went straight to the experts-the kids themselves-to find out what toys would be among the hottest during the holiday season. Just like last year, the toys that generate the most interest will receive the Military Brat Approved title and will be easily identified by special logos on store shelves and online at ShopMyExchange.com this fall.
