Waco Considers Partnership to Keep Fort Hood Soldiers in Texas

The City of Waco is looking into a partnership that could keep hundreds of Army veterans leaving Fort Hood in Central Texas.

Organizers report that 900 soldiers leave Fort Hood every months and just more than half of them say they would like to make Central Texas their permanent home.
