App For Military Families Puts Resources In The Palm Of Your Hand

ALEXANDRIA, Va., May 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Military families are in need of a central repository of vetted information and resources, which prompted the National Military Family Association to launch the first mobile app of its kind, MyMilitaryLife. This mobile application offers military families a customized experience that guides users through different life paths by anticipating their needs and determining appropriate resources for them at a particular stage in military life.

MyMilitaryLife is comprised of 10 "Life Paths" that help families navigate the many adventures of military life and address key events a military family might experience during their career. With more than 10,000 official military and community support websites providing information for military families, it is often difficult to navigate which sites are supplying credible information. Families are left scouring the internet to try and piece together the best resources to support the next steps in their life. For the first time families have access to trusted information right at their fingertips, specifically identified for their current life challenges and goals.

While every family goes through challenges, the military lifestyle changes quickly and often with unexpected hurdles to overcome, making MyMilitaryLife a critical resource to have for every scenario.  Below is an extended look at key features and Life Paths:

Features

  • Customized to-do lists
  • Tailored resources based on Service branch, location, and needs
  • Due date reminders
  • Push notifications Emergency phone numbers for military families

Life Paths

  • Having a Baby
  • Reintegration
  • Transitioning out of the military
  • Spouse Education
  • Spouse Employment
  • The Basics
  • Survivors
  • Deployment
  • Moving
  • Raising Kids

"Military families shouldn't have to struggle with finding information they need," said Executive Director, Joyce Raezer. " MyMilitaryLife serves as a trusted "one stop shop" providing families with credible information, tailored to their specific situation. We've verified the resources and have put it into a format that eliminates the stressful search. Understanding our families are often 'on the go' it is also important to ensure there is access anytime, anywhere."

MyMilitaryLife is available through iTunes and Google Play, as well as our web portal. Take a look at our video for a quick demo of the app in action. This initiative is made possible thanks to the generosity of BAE Systems, Goldman Sachs Gives, and TriWest Healthcare Alliance, and additional support from Health Net Federal Services, Hummingbird Foundation, Magellan Health Services, and USAA.
