Wire: White House Launches Virtual Town Hall for Deployed Troops
Off the Wire:
WASHINGTON, Sept. 1, 2009 -- Newswire services reported today that the White House launched an interactive, virtual town hall meeting yesterday on a non-government, commercially hosted Web site, that purports to enable troops deployed within U.S. Central Command to pose questions for "direct feedback from the commander in chief."
MilitaryOneSource.com, an enterprise created by Ceridian Corporation, a commercial data collection and human resources business, is hosting the effort, a collaboration between the White House and Pentagon.
Recently, the Pentagon launched a civilian, government hosted Web site at Defense.gov.
U.S. military Web sites are traditionally denoted by a .mil domain like Marines.mil, Navy.mil, Af.mil and Army.mil.
