Being in the military has a lot of benefits and perks. A lot of those benefits are offered free of charge but taken for granted and squandered. With this being said, the web-based source I choose is Military One Source (www.militaryonesource.mil). To be honest I never thought I would resort to rely on such a resource but I guess that is a perk that comes with a young, naive and inexperienced mind.

As I mention before this source is not just for the service members, it is also for their dependents and families as well.

Overall I would rate Military One Source to be a very useful tool not just for stress management but overall to function in my military life.
