CEO, The DOD Marketplace

Okinawa, Japan - The DOD Marketplace is excited to announce the launch of its new website, The DOD Marketplace is a unique resource for military families to find offbase housing, support military spouses and veterans businesses, and buy and sell within the military community.

The DOD Marketplace is the first and only website to provide a special category and visibility for military spouses and veteran-owned businesses. The platform is also designed to verify .mil email accounts, ensuring that users have the option to only buy and sell with other verified accounts, reducing scams and other bad actors.

In addition to these features, the DOD Marketplace is a valuable resource for finding local businesses that serve the DOD community. The website is built by veterans who have a deep understanding of the PCS process and the shortcomings of current resources.

"The DOD Marketplace is committed to supporting military families and veterans in Okinawa," said CEO BT Tanuki. "We know how difficult it can be to find resources that are specifically tailored to the unique needs of the military community. Our website is designed to simplify the process of finding offbase housing, supporting military spouses and veteran-owned businesses, and buying and selling within the military community."

The DOD Marketplace is free to use and provides a much-needed resource for military families in Okinawa. For more information, visit
