Military.com, a private enterprise serving current and former members of the U.S. armed forces, unveiled a new look to the website with a redesigned homepage featuring improved navigation and faster page loading, the company says in a written statement.
Military.com—a business unit of Monster Worldwide Inc.—says, the updated look and feel of the website, which has over 10 million members, boasts a top searches feature, a new carousel element that showcases the variety of subject matter across the site, a function to highlight the top resources on the site and an expanded Military Life section.
Military.com says it is the nation’s largest free military and veteran online news and membership organization serving active duty personnel, reservists, guard members, retirees, veterans, family members, defense workers and those considering military careers.
“Our goal was to put front and center the breadth and depth of Military.com content and offerings, exposing readers to our full network of sites,” said Mark Maxwell, Military.com’s vice president of products.
Retired Rear Admiral T. McCreary, who is president of Military.com, said, “Our members have come to expect superior functionality on our site. We are committed to continually enhancing that user experience by making it easier than ever to quickly locate content important to them, whether it be news or benefits info, the latest military gear content or videos.”
The new homepage proved its worth immediately with the breaking news that Navy Seals had located and killed Osama Bin Laden, according to Ward Carroll, the editor of Military.com. “At one point the front page featured our top story of Osama Bin Laden’s death, followed by a technical story referencing the equipment used in the raid, followed by a story on military spouses of special operations personnel. The improvements made to the site allowed us to better present the truly comprehensive coverage provided by the Military.com news team,” Carroll said.
