Get the facts regarding how to log in to AKO.

Army of Knowledge Online’s had it’s first login in the late 1990s as an experimental outgrowth of a project of the General Office Management Office. This early project led to A2OL (Americas Army Online), but legal concerns over this name and the parallelism to other commercial vendors caused the Army Project team to seek a new name. Early Project Officers for AKO were to develop, research and expand the AKO portal to benefit Army Users Worldwide. The project has run through various incarnations and later project leaders, but still the fundamentals of this system apply: centralized name spacing of email (with webmail access), white pages, unification of data conduits, central capability of authentication and repudiation of credentials and the ability to remotely access content. As of October 2010, all soldiers are required to register an AKO login account.
