    Default RallyPoint - Social Networking for the Military

    RallyPoint is a professional social network for the military (think LinkedIn). It's is in its (very) early stages, but I think this is a great idea. It's open only to verified (.mil) military, and graphs out your connections visually - i.e. where your contacts work, in what positions, etc.

    GEN(R) Casey, LTG(R) Freakley, and BG(R) Craig Nixon are all advisers, and the site CEO and COO are both former Army Officers.

    I think it looks like it will be very beneficial to growing your professional network, and they're big on developing a mentoring aspect as well.

    A few news stories about it:
