The Joint Readiness Training Center and Fort Polk web site home page, www.jrtc-polk.army.mil, is getting a facelift. The revamped site should be online June 1, barring unforseen complications.


The Joint Readiness Training Center and Fort Polk web site home page, www.jrtc-polk.army.mil, is getting a facelift. The revamped site should be online June 1, barring unforseen complications.
Please note the web site address has not changed -- what is different is how the home page will appear. The change will be seamless for those wishing to access the homepage.
NEC has been working for weeks with the Public Affairs Office to renovate the home page with an eye-catching redesign, reorganized links and up-to-date Army and Fort Polk news headlines.
The home page will feature a Facebook feed (the Fort Polk Guardian's Facebook page) that will allow PAO personnel to keep the community informed of inclement weather and other breaking news in a timely manner -- and as it happens.
Other home page additions include:
1. A widget that offers current Army news headlines on a revolving basis.
2. Weekly Guardian pictures via flickr.
3. Current Warrior Spirit TV stories and updates.
4. User-friendly points of contact for community requests and more.
5. A link that leads to a Facebook directory that will eventually list all
official Fort Polk facebook sites (one-stop shopping for users).
6. A calendar where the community can see what's taking place on the
installation (and in some cases, off the installation) and more. The
calendar will also integrate with Outlook and some smart phones.
The Public Affairs Office will keep you informed as the launch date approaches.
In the meantime, keep yourself informed about what's taking place on the installation.
