<b>What is it' </b>
<i>FORSCOM Frontline</i> is U.S. Army Forces Command's weekly web information page, designed to ensure that FORSCOM Soldiers, families, civilians and others have a one-stop online source for the latest information about to the command. <i>FORSCOM Frontline</i> gives readers insight into recent FORSCOM leadership discussions, news about Forces Command's units, hot topics and input from the command's public affairs units around the world.
<b>What has the Army done' </b>
The Army is constantly improving internal and external communication. Forces Command developed Frontline to provide succinct items of interest and links that would help FORSCOM Soldiers, families and civilians keep up to date on topics of interest to them as part of the FORSCOM organization. In addition to that internal audience, FORSCOM found that the Frontline resource also is of great interest to external audiences such as the Department of Defense, the Department of the Army, Congress, and community leaders.
<b>What efforts does the Army plan to continue in the future' </b>
Forces Command plans to continue to publish this newsletter and make it widely available. The FORSCOM internal audience includes subordinate commands, encompassing over 700,000 personnel. "<i>FORSCOM Frontline</i> is becoming widely read as FORSCOM's weekly online resource for the Army's and FORSCOM's most important information and strategic communication," said Col. Daniel L. Baggio, Chief of Public Affairs, U.S. Forces Command. FORSCOM also plans to make the resource available soon through a mobile application that will link directly to the page. That application will be made available to readers on their cell phones and PDAs.
<b>Why is this important to the Army' </b>
Communication vehicles within the Army have changed significantly with the trend as many audiences use online resources for most of their news and information. <i>FORSCOM Frontline</i> fulfills the need for FORSCOM and FORSCOM stakeholders to get the most recent critical information from a single online source.
