I want to take this opportunity to welcome an extraordinary military spouse who also started the Homefront Six Blog. She will be in charge of our blog and forums. We are blessed to have her talents.
I also want to welcome all of you and invite you to visit us at MilitaryConnection.com . Please take a few minutes to check out the site and our new blog – The MC Blog…. Please take advantage of the thousands of resources and information that we provide to users on MilitaryConnection.com. There is something for everyone.
You can find directories of bases, hospitals, benefits,organizations, forms, etc. for every branch of the military including guard and reserves and veterans. (I have included a link to the Army Directory as an example). We also provide the news, military pay charts, military pay and retirement calculators, directories of commissaries and exchanges and more….
If you are looking for a job, you have come to the right place and this is an area of focus for us. We offer a Virtual Job Fair of top jobs or you may wish to research thousands of employers listed in our Directory of Employers. We just added a new Job Board with thousands of jobs. We also have many Employment Articles and Job Tips including topics such as “Dressing For Success at a Military Job Fair” and Interview Questions. We feature one of the most comprehensive directories of military job fairs too.
We recently added a Directory of Scholarships with thousands of Scholarships too. We also work closely with many non-profits and you can check them out in either our Charity Connection or in Helpful Links which is a Directory of Resources. We work closely with www.thanksusa.org. This wonderful group that has provided millions of dollars for scholarships with military dependents. Recently we funded a MilitaryConnection.com/ThanksUSA scholarship. ThanksUSA.org is having a concert tonight at the Warner Theater in D.C. featuring Mylin and Stephen Cochran who is a wounded warrior. Stephen is also quite a hottie. You can check him out (and others) in our Music area. The Military Buzz Area of the site is almost a mini site within our site and one worth your time in exploring.
We want to hear what is important to you. We thank all of you for your service to our nation and your sacrifices and support. When the next tour is back home, it’s on www.miltaryconnection.com.

Welcome to Military Connection’s new blog! Our goal here is to not only highlight the benefits of all that Military Connection has to offer – information on military jobs, government jobs, education, and scholarships – but also to discuss issues and topics relevant to military and veteran life.
My “nom de plume” is HomefrontSix. I am a military spouse and our family is currently enjoying life in “Paradise”. My husband, “MacGyver”, has been in the Army for 10 years.
I hope this blog is a place where people can come to discuss things that affect us all. I don’t want this to be a one-sided conversation – if you have something to say, please do so! If there is an article that you want to draw attention to, please let me know. The more input, the better! I look forward to hearing from you!
