- From the Washington Post: "The site was designed by Grand Rapids, Mich. -based Internet entrepreneur Dan Kissinger and his father, Dale, a retired Air Force colonel who moved his brood 19 times during a 30-year career. Kissinger, 30, started a similar Web site in 1998 geared to Air Force families like theirs. He sold it to media conglomerate Primedia in 2000. When his non-compete agreement ended last year, he jumped back in, in a bigger way.
- Kissinger, who noted that the family of five had once lived in Panama and that he went to high school in Iceland, said, "After seeing all the stress the moves put on my parents, I wanted to have an impact on military relocations and hopefully take some of that stress away by providing the resources we didn't have when we moved."
- Three decades, 19 moves. Imagine the hours -- nay, weeks -- spent finding a decent pizza."
