Check Military By Owner when house hunting
MILITARY: CHECK MILITARYBYOWNER.COM WHEN LOOKING TO BUY OR RENT A HOME
Moving your entire life around periodically, and sometimes very unexpectedly, is a challenge that all military families share. When the time comes, it's great to have resources you can use to help alleviate some of the stress involved.
For our last two PCSs (relocations), to Montgomery, Alabama and Alexandria, Virginia, MilitaryByOwner.com was how we found great homes to rent. We also found homes to buy through the website.

More U.S. Soldiers Killed Themselves Than Died in Combat in 2010
Cord Jefferson, Senior Editor at Good presents some troubling numbers about the suicide rate for US Soldiers.
For the second year in a row, more American soldiers - both enlisted men and women and veterans - committed suicide than were killed in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Excluding accidents and illness, 462 soldiers died in combat, while 468 committed suicide. A difference of six isn't vast by any means, but the symbolism is significant and troubling. In 2009, there were 381 suicides by military personnel, a number that also exceeded the number of combat deaths.
Missing In America Project - Veteran Recovery Program
The continued reporting about the disgraceful mishandling of remains at Arlington National Cemetery prompted me to look around for more information.
The purpose of the MIA Project is to locate, identify and inter the unclaimed cremated remains of American veterans through the joint efforts of private, state and federal organizations. To provide honor and respect to those who have served this country by securing a final resting place for these forgotten heroes.
