Base public Web site undergoes upgrades

MCCHORD AIR FORCE BASE, Wash. --

McChord's public Web site has recently been upgraded to a standardized Air Force format, which includes more information and resources and is easier to navigate.

The site's new-look and user friendly format makes it easier for the off-base public to gather information about McChord and the Air Force, said 2nd Lt. Erika Yepsen, 62nd Airlift Wing Public Affairs.

The Web site also gives people the opportunity to request information on McChord by clicking on a link.

"It's now easier for anyone who wants to connect with the Air Force and our Airmen," said Lieutenant Yepsen. "It gives the public a chance to view some commonly asked questions and lets them know who exactly to get in touch with."

Although the Web site is geared toward the non-military audience, the site also offers Airmen new to McChord a chance to familiarize themselves with the base, said 2nd Lt. Stephanie Vidal, 62nd Communications Squadron.

"Before it was difficult to get information about squadrons and who to contact," Lieutenant Vidal said. "Now it offers a lot more information. I think it looks great."

Some of the information now available online at http://public.mcchord.amc.af.mil includes: press releases, McChord news and happenings, the weekly Northwest Airlifter, regularly updated base photos, the most recent fiscal year economic influence statement, fact sheets and space available travel information and guidelines.

The Web page upgrade is a part of an Air Force-wide initiative to improve and make consistent Web sites from bases to higher headquarters.
