I thought i would share this i found it on AKO last night.

If you are a current member of the US Army, Army Civilian Employee, or Retiree and have access to the AKO website with a valid enterprise(if already migrated) or AKO webmail. You are eligible to receive MS Office 201 Professional for $10, through the home use program. Also you can receive a dvd as a backup to the digital download for an extra $13.95. You can get both x86 or x64 versions of office 2013 or if you are a mac version you can get Office 2011 for the same. I did it last night the hole process took maybe 35 or 40 min install, purchase and download. here is the link to the army website for it.

This is available for Coast Guard personnel as well, I'll find the link soon if anyone is interested. I'm guessing that its probably available for all five branches of the armed services. I did it a couple years ago. Great deal, you can't beat it!

I've used this program through the Air Force and encourage any military members to take advantage of this. It seems that each branch has their own directions to get to it but its all the same concept. Thanks for bringing this to more military members attention, its amazing how many don't know about it yet. I was lucky enough to have a supervisor back a few years ago push this out to us very often.

Anyone can get a free antivirus that works really really well for home use - it's called Micro$oft Security Essentials. Way better on resources than other anti-malware - I use it and MBAM as my two personal anti-malware software of choice.

Kevin, tried to go through the process of getting the MS Office Pro Plus tonight and got to a page that says "Oops, this page is broken. DNS error-Serve not found. Got a techie from CHESS working on it. Maybe us old retired Master Sergeants aren't entitled anymore. Thanks bud and stay safe in the "Hood".

It was mentioned that retirees can access it, but can veterans in general access it too?
