Charleston, SC (PRWEB) May 15, 2006
Formerly known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day is a federal holiday that commemorates our American heroes who have died in military service to our country. On May 29 Americans will come together and pay their respects at cemeteries, memorials and parades, and a National Moment of Remembrance will take place at 3 p.m. http://www.VetFriends.com, the premier web site for reuniting U.S. veterans, active military, family and friends, carries this spirit and tradition - offering an online memorial, a nationwide parade directory and other features in support of our U.S. military.
http://www.VetFriends.com is an easy-to-use online web site providing services such as: people search for veterans, active military, family and friends; reunion postings; message boards; past and present military photos; military jokes; information on how to receive military records and medals; and more.
To honor our soldiers who have sacrificed for our country, http://www.VetFriends.com has developed an online casualty memorial at http://www.VetFriends.com/memorial. Visitors can search by State, military branch and war to view and submit bios and photos in memory of our fallen heroes.
A Memorial Day parade/events directory is available for people to find events in their area to support our veterans and active military. The directory will highlight locations, dates and times of the Holiday’s events at http://www.VetFriends.com/memorialparades/. Coordinators can submit and register their events at this address as well.
Founded by a veteran in support of our veterans.
The idea of an easy-to-use, online, veteran registry came to its founder, Marine Corps veteran of Desert Storm Dale F. 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.
With over 655,000 members, http://www.VetFriends.com LLC is a web site designed to assist veterans, active military, family and friends reunite. Valuable information, resources and features are available to all users.
