Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Stops By Fort Bragg
Mark Zuckerberg has spent the past two months traveling around the country, making stops at universities, churches, motor speedways, and cities that have been affected by hurricanes. Yesterday (March 14), he made a stop here at Fort Bragg – the largest military base in the world.
Zuckerberg posted on his Facebook page about his trip to Fort Bragg, explaining the people he met and places he was able to visit on base. He started the day at the U.S. Army Special Operations Command to learn about the strategy behind the missions the Army participates in.
After that, Zuckerberg met with some military spouses for lunch, where they talked to him about how much easier it is to communicate with those deployed thanks to Facebook and Messenger versus how difficult it was before the Internet was popular. They also explained the hardships behind being stationed to a new base, but Facebook groups are a great source to find new schools and activities going on in the area.
Zuckerberg ended his Facebook post by saying, “I’m always impressed when I meet with members of the military. Every time I leave with ideas for how to make Facebook better to help build stronger communities. Thank you to everyone I met for your service and for the sacrifice you make every day to keep us safe.”
