As Memorial Day approaches, VetFriends.com - the largest Web site 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 in times of need. In honor and support of U.S. veterans and military, VetFriends.com has created an online Memorial Day parade/events directory along with a Memorial Day online forum free for all visitors to view and submit information to.
The Memorial Day parade/events directory at http://www.vetfriends.com/memorialparades/ highlights the locations, dates and times of the Holiday's events. Moreover, coordinators can submit and register parades and events that may not yet be listed on the site. All listings will be posted on VetFriends.com for over 150,000 visitors per month to view, and circulated through a member newsletter reaching an additional 80,000 people nationwide. With these efforts, VetFriends.com hopes to encourage people across the nation to come together in support of our U.S. veterans, military & fallen heroes.
The online Memorial Day forum at http://www.vetfriends.com/memorial_day_forum/, allows visitors to read the personal comments and insights of what Memorial Day means to our U.S. veterans, active and reserve military, along with their family and friends. In addition, VetFriends.com welcomes all users to post and share their own thoughts on the significance of Memorial Day.
U.S. veteran M. Ercole writes to the forum:
"This Day is always special, as a Firefighter we go out and decorate the graves of the Brothers who have passed away. Being a U.S. Military veteran, I put American Flags alongside the Fire Company flags for the men who served our country. Thanks to all the families of all the vets. They are all my heroes."
