This is an official United States Army website, and is provided as a public service by the Army Installation Management Command (IMCOM), G9 Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR).

Information presented on this website is considered public information and may be distributed or copied unless otherwise specified. Use of appropriate byline/photo/image credits is requested.

If you choose to provide us with personal information -- like filling out a Contact Us form with your email -- we only use that information to respond to your message or request. We will only share the information you give us with another government agency if your inquiry relates to that agency, or as otherwise required by law. We never create individual profiles or give it to any private organizations. Family and MWR websites never collect information for commercial marketing. While you must provide an email address for a response, other than those generated automatically, in response to questions or comments that you may submit, we recommend that you NOT include any other personal information, especially Social Security numbers. The Social Security Administration offers additional guidance on sharing your Social Security number.

We maintain a variety of physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information. For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, this government computer system employs software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.

Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, no other attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits. Raw data logs are used for no other purposes and are scheduled for regular destruction in accordance with National Archives and Records Administration guidelines.

Unauthorized attempts to upload information or change information on this service are strictly prohibited and may be punishable under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 and the National Information Infrastructure Protection Act.

Our websites have links to other federal agencies. In a few cases we link to private organizations and/or third-party websites. Before leaving our websites, a message will appear informing you that you are leaving our website. Once you link to another website, you are subject to the privacy policy of the new website.

Family and MWR is especially concerned about protecting children's privacy. We hope parents and teachers are involved in children's Internet explorations. It is particularly important for parents to guide their children when children are asked to provide personal information online. Family and MWR will request no personal information from children.

If you have any questions or comments about the information presented here, please forward them to us using our Contact Us page.
