The Air Force is relocating the online resources that provide airmen and their families with around-the-clock access to information on topics like relocation, military child education, and finances to a new Web site. Effective Oct. 1, these resources will be located at Air Force Community, replacing the current Air Force Crossroads site, the service announced yesterday. The new site will be streamlined so that it is user friendly and information can be accessed with just a few clicks of the mouse from any computer, military or not. And it will have new features like news videos and podcasts. “The Web site was created with our airmen and families in mind,” said Maj. Karen Terry from the Pentagon Airman and Family Services Division. “We wanted to be able to offer them helpful information on topics that affect their daily lives, and give them the ability to access it whenever and wherever they wanted.”
After a long period in which munitions were almost an afterthought and sacrificed to pay for other priorities, the Air Force needs to focus on them in order to have the right “package” of capabilities for future conflicts, Chief of Staff Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr. said June 7.
