DoD Launches New Web Portal

The Department of Defense today launched a new home page, http://www.Defense.gov , designed to invite participation from the public and make military news and information more accessible.  The new Web site will provide quick access to those sites that are most sought by Web site visitors, including DoD social media sites, the Pentagon Channel and DoD news stories.

 

Prominent on the new home page is a new “We Want to Hear From You” feature that will give users the opportunity to ask questions of Defense Department leaders, vote on policy issues they want explained, and explore frequently asked questions and answers.  The new site, http://www.Defense.gov , replaces http://www.DefenseLink.mil  as the department’s main Internet entry portal.  DefenseLink will remain a news Web site and may be accessed from Defense.gov.  Visit us online: http://www.defense.gov .
