The Base Directory Team

Founder & CEO – Tony Hatala

Hailing from the great state of Indiana, Tony is the man to talk to about product improvements.  After countless PCSs, cross country flights, and liberty trips to San Diego, Tony knew there was a better way to organize and distribute base information.  He drew the basic design of the app and started programming in December of 2009.  After a yearlong hiatus the project resumed in the Winter of 2011.  ”Military Traveler” hit the iTunes Store in March of 2011.  Email Tony at
