Recent Updates to the Military OneSource Website

Navigating MilitaryOneSource.mil is easier than ever. Thanks to feedback from our military community, we’ve updated the site so users can more efficiently access the information, resources and support needed to live their best MilLife.

New Category and Topic Structure

The site now features a new category and topic structure to make categories and topics more intuitive and relevant, and content easier to find. The new structure:

  • Includes a new expandable MilLife Topics menu that shows topics related to each category, so you can scan and quickly find the topics relevant to you.
  • Expands categories to bring important topics higher up in the content structure.

MilLife Topics – New Topic Center Format

Content has been organized into a new format making it easier for you to find the information you need, all in a central location. Each topic has been converted into a topic center that includes an overview, links to articles, support services, benefits, resources and products relating to the topic.

Topic centers also include links to related topics to help users navigate through the site and find additional information and resources.
