  1. mil

    The domain name mil is the sponsored top-level domain in the Domain Name System of the Internet for the United States Department of Defense and its subsidiary or affiliated organizations. The name is derived from military. It was one of the first top-level domains, created in January 1985. The United States is the only country that has a top-level domain for its military, a legacy of the United States' military role in the creation of the Internet. Other countries often use second-level domains for this purpose, e.g., mod.uk for the United Kingdom's Ministry of Defence. Canada uses norad.mil with the United States as they jointly operate the North American Aerospace Defense Command. Although the United States military has its own top-level domain, it still uses com domains for some of its recruitment sites, such as goarmy.com, as well as for the Defense Commissary Agency's public website and most non-appropriated fund instrumentalities such as military MWR organizations and military exchanges. Also, the military uses edu domains for its service academies: the United States Military Academy, United States Coast Guard Academy, United States Naval Academy, and the United States Air Force Academy can all be reached using either an edu or a mil domain. The official athletic program sites of the three academies that are members of NCAA Division I use com domains. The Department of Defense itself uses gov for its home page, with at least three second-level domains within mil redirecting to its home page of defense.gov.

Examples of mil in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    El compromiso personal con integridad significa: decir la verdad honesta en todo momento, a pesar de que podría lastimar al oyente, y crear conflictos para usted personalmente. También significa que nunca conformarse con menos de lo que se merece en sus relaciones con los demás. Vivir con integridad no es fácil, porque ella exige su total compromiso con sus valores personales que deben ser más altos de lo ordinario. Ella también espera a tomar decisiones sobre la base de lo que usted cree, y no lo que otros te dicen creer. Todo se dice, viviendo con integridad, incluso para un día es mil veces mejor que un sinnúmero de años de vida sin ella. Una vida con integridad es la única vida bien vivida, en mi opinión. Así que adelante, dar ese paso audaz, y vivir la vida con integridad.

  2. John Kerry:

    The president believes that mil-to-mil conversation is an important next step and hopefully will take place very shortly and help to define some of the different options available to us as we consider next steps in Syria, our focus remains on destroying ISIL (Islamic State militants) and also on a political settlement with respect to Syria, which we believe cannot be achieved with the long-term presence of (President Bashar al-) Assad.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Ser amable con la gente, incluso a tus peores enemigos; no importa cómo se comportan. Vera que el buen karma siempre paga mil veces. También, ser amable con la gente es siempre la mejor herencia que uno puede dejar atrás. - Deo

  4. Umera Ahmed:

    Jis cheez ko tum badal na sako us k saath compromise kar lia karo, lekin apni kisi khwahish ko kabhi zid mat banaya karo. Zindagi main kuch cheezen hamen kabhi nahi mil saktin chahain hum royen, chillayen ya bachon ki tarah aeriyan rigren. Q k wo kisi or k liye hoti hain!

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Algunas personas creen que el silencio es oro, y que el silencio habla más que mil palabras. En mi opinión, no es cierto. Silencio menudo representa los restos de sus miedos, defectos e inseguridades. Silencio significa su incapacidad e impotencia para responder a la realidad. Los sonidos más tristes de silencio se escucharon en la más profunda oscuridad que siguió genocidios nazis, 9/11, el tsunami y Katrina. El silencio no es oro en absoluto, y que sin duda se vuelve en tu contra. Asi, siempre se atreven a hablar en su mente, y la vida se convertirá en suave y sin problemas de flujo libre. la vie continuar!
