Lt. Gen. Sean MacFarland, III Corps and Fort Hood commander, speaks to civic leaders from across the Central Texas community about the challenges of maintaining combat readiness.

Readiness #1 challenge for Army

While pay raises, increased benefits and new weapon systems are nice, the one thing that the Army needs most today is funds that can be spent on maintaining readiness, said Lt. Gen. Sean MacFarland at the Fort Hood - Killeen Chapter of the Association of the United States Army membership meeting Nov. 19 at Club Hood.

MacFarland, the III Corps and Fort Hood commanding general, was the guest speaker at the meeting filled with civic leaders from across Central Texas.

MacFarland spoke at length about his four priorities as the corps and post commander: combat readiness, leader development, quality of life, and community relations.
