Craigslist For The Military

Mark this one down as a fairly obvious opportunity, and I’m surprised it’s taken this long for someone to build it. Sammy Villarreal, an active duty U.S. Marine for the last 11 years, has seen his share of foreign deployments. He’s been to Iraq, Okinawa and the Philippines. He missed Craigslist back home during these times away, and thought it would make sense to create a Craigslist type site for military personnel.

Villarreal hired a programmer and launched (catchy name), a free classifieds site organized by military installation. It’s just launching and so there isn’t much content on the site yet (and there are a couple of typos), but if you’re, say, in the Navy and stationed in Iceland, this might be a good place to sell those unwanted DVDs.
