FORT HOOD MEDIA RELATIONS
All news media representatives planning to cover events on Fort Hood must be escorted by a member of the post's Public Affairs Office, or will be refused entry to Fort Hood. Call (254) 287-9993 or 0106 to request a PAO escort. Members of the news media who have a personal affiliation with the military (spouse or family member) and have a DoD decal are instructed to call the PAO at the numbers above for escort when reporting a story. Due to the limited number of PAO staff members available to provide escort, media are asked to request escort support as far in advance as possible.
Photographing military installations or equipment AR 360-1 Paragraph 5–33. a. Public access to Army installations is determined by local commands. Photographing historical buildings or areas of public interest for private use is generally permitted but also subject to approval by the local command. b. Ground or aerial photographs, sketches, or graphic representations of classified military equipment or installations designated as restricted areas is punishable by law (18 USC 795). Reproducing, publishing, or selling this type of material is also punishable by law unless the photograph, sketch, or graphic representation indicates it has been reviewed and cleared for release by proper authority.
