HEIDELBERG, Germany -- “Coming to U.S. Army in Europe and want some info? Or, are you looking for tips on making the most of your European tour? Ask EURMama!”

That is what visitors to U.S. Army Europe’s new site on the social media platform Twitter will see right at the top. Visitors will also see a picture of EURMama, a fictional woman who could be from any of the countries in Europe where U.S. Army personnel are stationed.

“EURMama represents a welcoming and wise figure who will always have information and advice for those who need tips and facts about life in U.S. Army in Europe – whether they are on orders to a new assignment here, are new to the command, or have been here quite some time and have a question,” said Col Bryan Hilferty, U.S. Army Europe's public affairs chief.

But unlike your own mom, EURMama doesn’t know everything. So this site, like most social media sites, will be a place for everyone in the community to post their own tips and tidbits about life in U.S. Army in Europe.

To ask EURMama a question, pick up some tips, or give some of your own, EURMama says search for @EURMama on www.Twitter.com.
