I'm sure a few of you have gone into the RPU and used this tool. If not, pull it up, zoom in, click on a city or base, and see all the veterans in that area. I was pretty surprised to see how many veterans and SMs are in just my local area. <div><br></div><div>I've already used this tool to network opportunities and get introductions in the California Bay Area. </div><div><br><div>How would you use this tool to better assist with your TDY, move, transition, PCS or other major career event?

I'm curious to know whether RallyPoint members would be interested in using the map to discover housing opportunities in advance of their PCS/ETS -- to include POCs that could assist with that decision process. It could function similar to Trulia, where as you navigate deep into a specific map area, you are shown a recommended POC for a housing leasing agent, etc. RallyPoint obviously has big plans for RPU and the map, so we're looking for ideas from all of you. Yes, we certainly have our own ideas...but we want yours.
Might be a good idea to see if you can place markers of the locations of things like local VA Medical Clinics, VA Regional Offices, Veteran Service Organizations and things like that on the map as well. This would help service members who are transitioning out of the service to find helpful places to get information.
