Charleston, SC (PRWEB) January 12, 2006
It is important for all Americans to reflect on the bravery of the many men and women who have served our country in times of need, both past and present. 15 years ago, on January 16, 1991, the U.S. initiated Operation Desert Storm to liberate Kuwait from Iraq under Saddam Hussein‘s rule. 500,000 Desert Storm soldiers, then at a young age, now are part of the 20 million living U.S. veterans. It seems like yesterday that these men and women were fighting to serve our country, and today like us, they are curious of the whereabouts of past friends now living in the community. With this powerful notion in mind, http://www.VetFriends.com - the premier Website for reuniting veterans - offers the tools and resources needed to locate veterans, active military, family and friends.

Founded by a veteran of Operation Desert Storm
The idea of an easy-to-use, online, veteran registry came to its founder, Marine Corps veteran of Desert Storm Dale Sutcliffe, during a conversation with his father-in-law, who had served during the Korean War. When asked whether he would attend a hypothetical reunion with his old Army unit, his father-in-law responded, "I'd be on the next plane to Korea to see those guys." Reflecting on the depth of this reply, Sutcliffe realized those special bonds often withstand the test of time precisely because of the unique and often difficult circumstances under which they were formed. Now, those bonds can be reestablished through modern technology.
