FORT JACKSON, S.C. -- New changes are on the horizon for Fort Jackson. Col. James Love, garrison commander, will host a Town Hall Meeting 6 p.m., Aug. 2 in the Solomon Center to address a few of those.

Back-to-school will lead the topics, which include an early release plan for Fort Jackson schools. School representatives will be present to discuss the specifics.

Details about Common Access Card availability for spouses and retirees will also be discussed. Information on programs and opportunities for Fort Jackson personnel will be shared by Directorate of Human Resources, Fort Jackson Liaisons, MEDDAC, Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation, Directorate of Emergency Services and Fort Jackson Schools. Free food and child care will be provided on site, so all family members are encouraged to attend.

“We only do this twice a year, so we would love to see as many people from the community there as possible,” said Lewis Kellam of Directorate of Plans, Training, Mobilization, and Security. “We also encourage people to send us your questions so that we can make sure we address any concerns. We want everyone to have a chance and get their voices heard.”
