Fort Hood is celebrating the grand opening Bath & Body Works at the Clear Creek Exchange Shopping Center. The Fort Hood garrison commander Col. Chad Foster will help the Exchange cut the ribbon on the new store 9 a.m. Dec. 17 here.

The addition of Bath & Body Works is a part of a long-term project to improve the quality of life at Fort Hood. Shopping the Fort Hood Exchange benefits Soldiers and military families as 100% of Exchange earnings support the military community. This will be the second Bath & Body Works in Killeen.

Media interested in attending the event should call (254) 291-2317 by 4 p.m. Dec. 16. On Dec. 17, media should meet the Public Affairs escort at 8:00 a.m. in the south side parking lot of the Marvin Leath Visitor Center.
