The Fort Hood Skating Rink may be in danger of closing for good, but a petition is going around the web to try and keep this family friendly activity center open to the military community. 

Affordable old fashioned fun that our kids love. Tracy Hale, San Antonio, Texas.

The website Change.org, and the families of Fort Hood, are circulating a petition aimed at the Fort Hood MWR to keep the Fort Hood Skate Rink open for roller skating and other activities.

The rink is one of a few places on post for kids and families to go on weekends. Several military families are heading to the website to sign the petition. Here are some of the comments from folks signing the petition.

My Daughter looks forward to parties here every year. We love the skate rink. Victoria Engle, Fort Hood, Texas.

The Fort Hood MWR site lists the hours to the skate rink as open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The rink also has a Facebook page with lots of local support. To sign the petition you can link here to add your signature.

I have been voluntering my time teaching at the rink since 1991 and I don't want it to close. I'm 72 and a retired sgm. John Prince, Killeen, Texas.
