Charleston, SC (PRWEB) November 11, 2010
Carrying the spirit and tradition of honoring U.S. military veterans, VetFriends.com -- the largest Web site for reuniting U.S. veterans with over 1 million members -- has created an "Honor & Thanks" Veterans Day tribute. VetFriends was founded by a U.S. veteran in 2000, and continues to help reconnect and honor military veterans.
VetFriends.com founder, former Corporal D.F. Sutcliffe states: "Each and every day the entire VetFriends.com team takes time to express our thanks, appreciation and honor toward our military heroes -- whether it be through helping people reunite, providing information and support, or simply saying "Thank You." We are here for our veterans and military."
A Veterans Day forum has been developed on the Web site at http://www.vetfriends.com/veteransday reaching out to veterans and anyone else interested in contributing their thoughts and insights in regard to Veterans Day, or to give a message of thanks to veterans. These submissions are posted online in a Veterans Day collection for all to view and share.
Through Veterans Day and the holidays, VetFriends will be taking up to 50% off all Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard pride items to show their support, thanks and appreciation of all veterans and military service men and women. Moreover, visitors are invited to utilize Veterans Day coupon code: VP for an additional 20% off all U.S. military caps, shirts, collectibles, patches, stickers and many other pride items online at http://www.vetfriends.com/catalog.
The Veterans Day nationwide parade/event directory can be viewed at http://www.vetfriends.com/parades. Visitors are invited to view community parades and events celebrating Veterans Day. All listings are posted on VetFriends.com for over 160,000 visitors per month to view, and circulated through a member newsletter reaching an additional 80,000 people nationwide.
The VetFriends.com military photo collection at http://www.vetfriends.com/militarypics 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 stating the year, military unit and branch, war served and more. Pictures can be viewed at regular size or enhanced for a larger close up view.
VetFriends.com offers additional services such as: search over 1,103,000 members to make contact with military service friends and relatives; information on how to obtain your own or a relative's military records and medals; message boards; military veteran job boards; upload past and present photos; military jokes; search and post reunions, military pride merchandise and more.
In remembrance of the sacrifices and acts of courage that many men and women made during World War I, Armistice Day was declared a federal holiday on Nov. 11, 1938. Soldiers marched in hometown parades, politicians and veteran officers gave speeches and held ceremonies all in celebration of the peace they had won. In 1954, Nov. 11 was officially changed to Veterans Day, representing our nation's thanks, loyalty and respect to our veteran soldiers. At VetFriends.com, Veterans Day is celebrated today, and all year long.
Founded in 2000 by a U.S. veteran, thousands of people have been reconnected through VetFriends.com, spanning from World War II through to Operation Desert Storm and the present. VetFriends.com has a current member count of over 1,103,000 people with 160,000 visitors per month to the site. Please visit http://www.vetfriends.com for more information.
