The Defense Department is huge and has numerous moving parts, so we're sure you have lots of questions that might bring you to Defense.gov. Civilians always have questions about military procedures, and service members and their families have an entirely different subset of queries about what’s available to them.
Luckily, we have a whole Question & Answer section on Defense.gov with well over 100 frequently asked questions, as well as some not-so-frequently asked questions. For instance, there's a section on how to find out if you’re the victim of a military romance scam.
And yes, that’s actually a thing.
There's lots of standard information, too, like how to request military equipment, bands and color guards for community events, and how to arrange for military funeral honors for a veteran or get your loved one a military grave marker.
Yup, you can find those answers, too.
There's a lot of information about DOD programs you can join, how you can become an intern and how you can obtain military records.
If you're curious about how you can teach for the DOD at one of our overseas schools — we've got that covered, too!
There's even a section on how to report fraud, waste and abuse at DOD. You can also learn where to find the results from missile tests.
You can filter your questions by keyword and category, and if you're not sure your question has been answered, email us your query. There's room at the bottom of the page to send us what you’re wondering.
