Defense transformation site debuts

Department of Defense Transformation Web site

The Defense Department has a new Web site focusing on the military's transformation efforts.

The site will concentrate on news in the transformation arena, including technologies used by service members abroad in the fight against terrorism. The site will highlight the broad range of initiatives in the transformation arena, including those related to policy, equipment, training, people and programs.

"This is another next step in our effort to focus more attention on the Defense Department's priorities," said Chris Willcox, deputy assistant secretary of Defense for public liaison, in a statement. "The first step occurred in October 2001 when DOD introduced its DefendAmerica Web site detailing U.S. efforts in the war on terrorism. The next step came this June when DOD revamped its home page."

Willcox said officials determined that transformation is so important in the war on terrorism that it should have its own Web site.

"There is a lot transformation news out there right now, but it's scattered and people interested in the topic have to surf many sites to get the total picture," Willcox said. "Our goal is to provide that total picture and highlight specific areas in the transformation arena."
