This Veterans Day, Americans will come together to express their respect and gratitude towards U.S. veterans and military personnel. VetFriends.com - the largest Web site for reuniting U.S. veterans - encourages the community to enjoy and appreciate an authentic collection of military photos at http://www.vetfriends.com/militarypics, honoring the many brave men and women who have served or are serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. All photos were submitted by U.S. veterans, active military, family and friends -- with photos spanning from pre World War I to the present.
The VetFriends.com military photo collection is made up of thousands of images in honor of U.S. military personnel. 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 available with each photo, where viewers can send thank you comments, questions and information requests to the person who submitted the photo.
After finding a photo in the VetFriends.com photo collection, visitor S. Malanga writes: "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!"
