VetFriends.com – the premier Web site reuniting and supporting U.S. veterans, active military, family and friends – offers an authentic and historical collection of military photos spanning from the present day back to pre-World War I. The collection at http://www.vetfriends.com/militarypics, is free for all to view and allows visitors to submit their or a relative’s pictures, request information, honor their loved ones and reunite with friends.
The VetFriends.com photo collection is made up of thousands of educational pictures submitted by U.S. veterans, active military, family and friends. Visitors can search for images by specific military branch, year, war, state and country. Each picture contains background information along with a brief message or description. To promote reuniting, an “e-mail reply option” is now available with each photo, where users can send comments, questions and information requests to the submitter.
“What a Surprise for me! The man on the right, is my Father! Thank you for putting this picture online. I was just going from site to site, trying to bring back memories, and there he was on VetFriends.com!”, writes visitor Sharon Malanga.
All photos, both color and black and white can be uploaded free at http://www.vetfriends.com/MilitaryPics/image_upload.cfm, where they are then edited, resized, approved for content and posted live within a week of submission.
As a member-orientated site, visitors to VetFriends.com can further submit their personal reunion stories, military jokes, lingo and cadences. Other features include: search over 690,000 veterans, active military, family and friends; information on how to receive your own or a family member’s military records and medals; reunion postings; message boards; military discounts and more.
VetFriends.com was founded in 2000 by Marine Corps veteran of Desert Storm, Dale F. Sutcliffe. Since then, thousands of people have been reconnected through VetFriends.com, spanning from World War II thru to Operation Desert Storm and the present.
