When we launched Task & Purpose in April 2014, we wanted to create a forum that demonstrated the dynamic and diverse nature of the modern military community.
In six short months, we’ve made incredible strides toward that goal. We’ve engaged the military community about tough topics, and leveraged the remarkable experiences of modern veterans in a wide variety of news, career, and cultural stories.
In fact, in the month of September, just five months after we launched, Task & Purpose garnered more than 1 million unique pageviews from our incredible community of readers.
Now, we’re excited to bring those readers a new feature — The Skyline — an aggregation of great stories, news and perspectives from across the internet.
We look forward to connecting with our audience in ever-expanding ways. If you see a story you’d like to see on the Task & Purpose Skyline, shoot us a note at email@example.com.

"DOD's 2018 portfolio of major weapon programs has grown in cost by $8 billion, but contains four fewer systems than last year," GAO found.
