Army Gets New Web Site for Its Birthday
Washington D.C. -- May 11, 2001 (Army News Service) -- The Army will post a new web site at www.army.mil when it celebrates its 226th birthday, June 14, said Maj. Chris Conway of the Army Chief of Staff's Office.
"The revised Army Homepage will be a birthday gift for the more than one million visitors who view the current website each month," Conway said. "Many of our changes to the site are based on feedback from viewers."
The new Army Homepage will include improved navigation features that will speed viewers to needed information and an enhanced graphics capability that will captivate users with animation as they retrieve information, Conway said. The site will also be in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and it will possess a feedback function so users can continue to have an impact on the design of The Army Web site.
This new Army Web site, like earlier versions, will continue to provide a variety of services, Conway said, to include: keeping members of the Army community around the world informed of the latest news, benefits, and opportunities; inspiring young people to join and to continue their service in The Army; and informing and educating the American public on the role and importance of the Army and the Army's continued service to the nation.
"The Army of the new millennium deserves to have a new official website," Conway said.
Other Army websites include Army Knowledge Online, at www.us.army.mil, and an Army Recruiting site at www.goarmy.com. Army Knowledge Online is an intranet site available to all Army (Active, National Guard and Reserve, DA civilians and retirees), which features the latest Army news, knowledge centers, a lifetime e-mail account, a powerful search engine, and a chat room.
