About Family Matters Blog
AFPS started as a weekly collection of articles distributed by mail to military newspaper editors worldwide, and has grown into a timely news service available on the World Wide Web. Press service stories are available for use inside and outside the military on the Defense Department’s website, www.defense.gov/news, as well as through free e-mail subscriptions, RSS feeds, Facebook and Twitter. Publishing more than 3,000 news and feature articles annually, AFPS covers developments affecting servicemembers and their families, reports from the scene when senior leaders travel, and uses selected articles from the services and military units to tell the Defense Department’s story. Now, AFPS has launched its first blog, soon to be followed by more blogs on subjects of interest and concern to servicemembers and their families.
