The Center for Military Life (CMil) provides support and services for veterans, prospective and current service members, Department of Defense employees and their dependents.  Our goal is to provide resources during the entire life cycle of military service:  from pre-enlistment, career advancement to transition support back to civilian life.

As a part of Center for Military Life, the Armed Services Institute is a nonpartisan research and advocacy entity with a mission to promote positive change in the lives of Department of Defense and related employees.  Our analytical team consists of leading experts in matters related to the best policies, practices, and products that are critical to both the safety and security of our nation. Through research, analysis, and programs we provide both fresh insights and training for the defense community, decision makers, and general public.

CMil hosts periodic events open to the public on a wide-range of topics associated with military and veteran services.

CMil is a division of Thomas University.  TU is a private, non-profit, regionally accredited institution located in Thomasville, Georgia.  TU offers a wide range of majors online and on-campus in some of today’s hottest career fields.
