TODAY'S FOCUS

A MESSAGE TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS

In the news column (right side) of Stand-To!, you typically see two links beside each headline - a link to a commercial news site (WP, NYT, LAT) and a link to the Early Bird (EB).

The Early Bird is only available to those whose computers are connected to a DoD network. Access to the Early Bird is not determined by your status as an active duty service member, retiree, civilian, etc., but determined by your computer's network connection. For more information about Early Bird access, go to http://ebird.afis.osd.mil/accesshelp.html.

Commercial news links are provided for the convenience of those who are not connected to a DoD network. Some of the commercial news sites require a one-time registration.

Other news sources cited in Stand-To, such as Army News Service (ARNEWS), Armed Forces Information Service (AFIS), Central Command News, European Command News, TRADOC News, and all links under the World View heading are publicly available, without restrictions.

We select news articles from a wide variety of sources, both external and internal, to present our readers with a broad sampling of information and opinion.

We thank you, our subscribers, for your support. In just eight months, we have added more than 5,700 subscribers and that number grows daily. Please continue to send us feedback through the link at the bottom of the Web page. We will do our best to respond to you in a timely manner and answer any questions you may have.

Very Respectfully,

The Staff of Stand-To!
