President Barack Obama will travel to Fort Meade, Md., on Friday for his first “Worldwide Troop Talk,” to be broadcast live from the Army installation.

The show begins at 3 p.m., with the president taking questions from an in-house audience and from servicemembers in the U.S. and overseas through email, Twitter, Skype and Facebook.

To ask a question, tweet using the hashtag #AskPOTUS. More than 10 questions per hour will be asked during the show, depending on the president’s answers.

The show will be live-streamed on stripes.com and several other outlets, including www.defense.gov/live, YouTube and AFN, which will rebroadcast the Troop Talk throughout the weekend.
