As you can see this is a program for active duty and reserve and National Guard troops and their families, it has all the information on one web site that anyone would need in dealing with the military regardless of what branch they belong to, they have pages for the Army, Navy, Marine Corp and the Air Force, broken down by states and installations. I hope those of you who need information find this a useful site, it appears that DOD is attempting to do something great here.

Hat tip to my friend Larry Meirow for introducing it to me. SALUTE
