Consumer Resources for families. Please check out local referrals on our site. These other resources are provided so that you may become an informed consumer. Almost every military family has a story about moving into a new area and getting "taken" advantage of in some way. Our referral system and these links will hopefully reduce the possibility of that happening or happening again.
A difficult process. Please make sure you check out our relocation center for helpful information to make things go a lot smoother. One aspect to moving, often overlooked, is checking out the area. Megan's law provides citizens with the opportunity to be a aware of the locations of known predators. Please take a moment of your time before you move to check out these resources.

Diet and Exercise
In our experience at eMilitary, we have found that diet is a prominent concern of both military members and their spouses. Making your "weight" during AFPT or keeping it healthy when your spouse is deployed (and you are under stress) is difficult. eMilitary hopes that these resources will assist you in your road to health. You will not find any links to specific diet plans. eMilitary believes that only a collaboration of your physician and yourself can result in the healthiest -AND SAFEST- plan for weight loss and maintenance.

Probably the most important aspect of moving is understanding the do's and don'ts of the educational system, how to be your own advocate and know where to go to find the information you need. These are some links to help you with that part of your move. Please be sure to check the local community information about schools in the area you are moving.
