REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala.--The U.S. Army Security Assistance Command has recently overhauled its website and can now be found on many of your favorite social networks.
"The new website encompasses the Army web template and allows our site to be an ever-changing news tool for the general public," said Michelle Voeller, USASAC Public Affairs Officer. "And we couldn't have done it without the support of our Information Management team."
The new website features the latest news and stories about USASAC on the homepage, and the reorganized layout provides further details on doing business with USASAC, careers, BRAC and has a special section for International Customers.
USASAC followed the lead of the Army Materiel Command in creating pages on several social media sites, including Facebook, Twitter and Flickr.
According to Voeller, the sites will inform the general public of what USASAC is doing and help educate the average person on Army Foreign Military Sales.
The Facebook and Twitter pages allow USASAC to connect to "the average joe" and provide news stories, videos, pictures and links of interest related to Army Foreign Military Sales.
The Flickr page features photos and videos from around the command and will eventually serve as a multimedia archive of Foreign Military Sales imagery.
