Having a hard time figuring out which category you want to check in? Try searching all of "The Army Link" with my customized search box below:


Here are the most recent additions to "The Army Link". Please don't be surprised as links are removed. Each one I place here is also in it's appropriate location, accessible via the table of contents at the top of this page. I try to not have more than 10 sites in this section, so I delete the oldest one, but I still leave the other copy of the link until it no longer works. It will also be removed immediately if it should happen to become obnoxious, anti-military, or of questionable ethical values.......Enjoy.......'s a site for those with the highest levels of hooah! You'll find links to a broad range of topics, oriented towards all soldiers, as well as Infantrymen. There are also bulletin boards for each of the services.......a great way to post questions and get feedback on various issues and concerns. Enjoy the visit..............

America's Army....A description of this site is best found in the following quote from the Frequently Asked Questions page. "The America's Army game provides civilians with an inside perspective and a virtual role in today's premier land force: the U.S. Army. The game is designed to provide an accurate portrayal of Soldier experiences across a number of occupations. To accomplish this we designed the America's Army game to include the Operations game, a 3D action game that portrays training and small unit actions, as well as Soldiers, the role-playing portion to be released in 2003, which allows players to navigate life's challenges to achieve life goals in the Army." The game is free and can be downloaded from the website or it can be requested from an Army Recriter. Keep in mind that the download is fairly huge (330 megs) and will take quite a while to download with dial up...............

Find Your BAH Rate....Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) varies from post to post and is dependent upon your rank. If you would like to find out quickly how much BAH you are authorized, or you are planning out your move and want to learn the rates at your next post, then this link is just what you needed..............

Miles 2000....If you want to get the most out of the new generation MILES equipment, then instruction manuals are a must. Here you'll find links to operator's manuals for the different components of MILES 2000. There is also a Support Bulletin Board where you can post questions and find answers to technical and tactical questions..............

Military Sentinel....This quote from their site says it best....."Military Sentinel is a project of the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Defense to identify and target consumer protection issues that affect members of the United States Armed Forces and their families. To file a consumer complaint, click on your service seal. This will link you to the consumer complaint forms. Military Sentinel also provides a gateway to consumer education materials covering a wide range of consumer protection issues, from auto leasing, to identity theft, to work-at-home scams. To view consumer education material and find out more about the Federal Trade Commission, click on the Federal Trade Commission seal. Military Sentinel allows members of the United States Armed Forces to enter consumer complaints directly into a database that is immediately accessible by over 500 law enforcement organizations throughout the United States, Canada, and Australia. These law enforcement agencies use this complaint data to target cases for prosecution and other enforcement measures. The information from Military Sentinel can also be used by members of the JAG staff and others in the Department of Defense to help protect armed services members and their families from consumer protection-related problems." The bottom line is, this is a great avenue to use in reporting problems to the authorities...............

Consumer Protection from the Federal Trade Commission....This is a link within the FTC site, but it contains a significant amount of information on scams, identity theft, lending, travel, and more...............

The Web's Largest Heraldic Dictionary....Try reading the official description of your unit crest....... terms like "a pale interlaced", "of or and gules", an "annulet counterchanged" and more tells you ver little in plain English.
