Soldiers, Army Civilians Eligible for Home Copy of Microsoft Office
By Margaret McBrideJanuary 31, 2007
WASHINGTON (Army News Service, Jan. 31, 2007) - All Army Soldiers and civilian personnel are now eligible for a licensed copy of Microsoft Office desktop applications to use on a home computer.
The only cost is for packaging, shipping and program administration. An Army Knowledge Online account is required.
"In an information-based Army, this tremendous benefit helps our personnel be better trained in applications they use daily in units and offices," said Vernon M. Bettencourt Jr., deputy chief information officer for G-6.
Applications include Office for Windows and Mac, Visio, Project and OneNote.
Soldier and civilians will pay approximately $20 for what is typically several hundred dollars, Bettencourt said. The benefit stems from the Army Microsoft Enterprise License Agreement.
