In case you missed it on our homepage, this is a Quick Response (QR) code. You’re going to be seeing more of these on this website, Facebook fan page, and our printed marketing materials. You will find they are also used in magazines, newspapers and even billboards.
It’s a cousin of the classic bar code you see on consumer goods when you shop. But this code contains a URL. Basically, it’s a hyperlink on paper – one that your smart phone can read & launch. What this means to you is that our website & Fort Hood listings are now easier than ever to access on your smart phone.
You’ll need an app for your smart phone to read these gems. Just do a search for QR readers. Many are free. Here are a few sites and searches to get you started:
Once you install the app, launch it to take a picture of the QR code with your smart phone camera. The app goes to work and reads that image to translate it into a URL. Your smart phone’s browser launches, and the information you want is on your screen.

Happy QR code hunting!
