Military Organizations

This page lists many of the most important official military sites on the Internet for the US and other countries. The Internet is enormous, however, and neither Olive-Drab.com nor any other single site will be able to point you to everything worthwhile that is out there. Furthermore, the Internet is constantly changing with new sites appearing, old ones changing or disappearing, on a daily basis. So, in addition to the Olive-Drab.com pages and listings you should make use of the military-oriented search tools referred to on this page.

Military Oriented Search Tools

Rings. Many sites have organized themselves into Rings. If you are not familiar with the idea, a Ring is a group of sites which have linked together so you can go from one to the other in a chain. Each site has a banner on it (somewhere, usually on the home page) which leads to the next site, previous site, or a random site. A list of some of the military oriented rings are found on our Ring Page. Many other Rings, on many other subjects, can be found by searching this Ring Directory. Use "military" as a search word, or anything else you are interested in.

Directories and Search: Use this link to Yahoo to discover many more military sites within the US Government and other countries. Or use the Google US Government Search or other search engine to explore the hundreds of sites coming on the web in constantly increasing numbers.

Another useful resource is the U.S. Government website called FirstGov. They can link you to every variety of program run by the U.S. Federal government that relate to the military or veterans.
