Charleston, SC (PRWEB) October 6, 2008
As Veterans 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. To promote and support U.S. veterans, VetFriends.com has created an online Veterans Day parade/events directory along with a Veterans Day online forum free for all visitors to view and submit information to.
The Veterans Day parade/events directory at http://www.vetfriends.com/parades highlights the locations, dates and times of the Holiday's events. Moreover, coordinators and visitors 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 and support U.S. veterans.
The online Veterans Day forum at http://www.vetfriends.com/veteransday, allows visitors to read the personal comments and insights of what Veterans 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 Veterans Day. U.S. veteran R. Zelonis writes to the forum:
"I thank you veterans for not being selfish with your lives and believing in our nation's freedom. May we laugh, cry and remember on this day, Nov. 11, our experiences and memories."
