MCLEAN, Va., May 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Military.com has unveiled a new look with a redesigned homepage featuring improved navigation and faster page loading.
The updated look and feel of the site, 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.
"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, Vice President of Products.
President of Military.com and retired Rear Admiral T McCreary added, "Our members have come 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 last week that Navy Seals had located and killed Osama Bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
"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," said Editor of Military.com, Ward Carroll.
