Some of you may have been watching that I have been posting unit crests from my collection with a link to the Institute of Heraldry's' website. Some of you may also notice that you cannot access the link provided if you are on a home computer. Here is an explanation and hopefully a soon to be resolution:


I just got off the phone with an IT representative from TIOH. She told me that the website is up and running for DOD/military computers (I have access at my work site on Fort Bliss) but on the civilian side the website is down. She told me they are going to a more secure system and that it should be up and running sometime in April.

In the meantime if there is assistance needed on heraldry information, we were told to contact Bonnie Henning at 703 806-4972.

I hope this answers some questions for some of you as it answered mine as to why I can get the site at work but not from my home laptop...

As of 5:10 mountain time the site is up for now but it may have a few issues..

Still working on getting to all the links.

The motto link is working but the Distinguished Unit Insignia page is not loading..
