Joint Chiefs Chairman Launches Virtual Town Hall

The Joint Staff, in coordination with Defense Media Activity, released a YouTube video calling for questions to be submitted via video to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen.

 

The chairman intends to use social media to expand the two-way conversation with service members and the public.  Mullen expects this conversation to be interactive, similar to the all-hands meetings he conducts in person at bases all over the world.

 

Those with questions for the Chairman are encouraged to submit videos by visiting http://www.youtube.com/dodvclips .  The deadline for video submission is midnight EDT, Aug.31, 2009. The chairman will answer selected video questions after Sept.1, 2009, through a video podcast posted on YouTube and an interview which will air on the Pentagon Channel.
