With the approach of Memorial Day, VetFriends.com - the largest Web site for reuniting U.S. veterans - is reaching out and asking all Americans to take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices and bravery of all who have served our country. Carrying this spirit and tradition of supporting U.S. veterans, VetFriends.com has created a nationwide directory of veteran-owned companies and professionals at http://www.vetfriends.com/business. This Memorial Day, people can honor veterans in a new way: Thank them for their military service and then do business with them.
