The Military Advantage, 2013 Edition, written by Terry Howell, Managing Editor for Benefits for Military.com is the essential annual reference guide to military and veteran’s benefits. Published in partnership with Military.com, the nation's largest military membership organization with over 10 million members and its parent company, Monster.com, the nation’s largest career and job website, this latest edition is the most reliable benefits guide for the over 30 million Americans who have answered the call to serve in the military. These valuable benefits include billions in scholarships, educational benefits, home loan guarantees, and military discounts.
Due to the drawdown of forces in Iraq and Afghanistan and required budget cuts, the Department of Defense plans on reducing military forces by as many as 100,000 troops over the next five years. In response, the 2013 edition of the Military Advantage will focus on the rights and benefits available to assist service members, veterans and their families as they transition to civilian life in record numbers.

While at Military.com, he has worked with the Department of Defense to write the content for TurboTAP, the DoD’s online transition assistance program. In addition, Howell was the lead on a team of subject matter experts who developed the military skills matching tool for the Department of Veterans Affairs VAForVets website.
