TODAY'S FOCUS

MyArmyLifeToo (MALT) Web System - the Website of Choice for Army Families

What is it? The MyArmyLifeToo Web Portal is a Web site that highlights Family Programs services in Army Community Service, the Army National Guard and Army Reserve Family Programs. It is written in easily understood language for Family members versus Army terms, acronyms and program names. It is the face of Family Programs and serves as the Web site of choice for information on programs and services. To date, there are over 66,000 registered users.

What has the Army done? Prior to establishing MyArmyLifeToo (MALT) in 2001, there was no single portal to provide "official" information to Army Families. Although a plethora of general Web sites existed, none were sponsored by the Department of the Army. The MALT was created to serve as a "one-stop" knowledge center designed especially for Family members and is sponsored by the Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation Command (FMWRC) Family Programs (FP) Directorate.

The Web site is easy to navigate with most information available for the user within four clicks. Users who register on the site receive the monthly newsletter, Family News. The site is publicly accessible thus available to all Soldiers and to immediate and extended Family members.

What efforts does the Army plan to continue in the future? The Army will continue to improve the navigation and add features to the MALT such as the virtual Soldier Family Assistance Center.

Why is this important to the Army? The Army's goal is to give Soldiers and Family members one primary place or single portal to access information about Army life - from Army customs, home and personal safety to managing deployment and understanding military pay. Individuals who register at MyArmyLifetoo.com get the most up-to-date information about the Army's support resources.
