As Memorial Day approaches, VetFriends.com - the largest Web site reuniting U.S. military veterans - is reaching out and asking all Americans to take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices and bravery of all the U.S. men and women who have and are serving their country. In honor and support of U.S. veterans and military personnel, 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 their comments 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 160,000 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 U.S. veterans, active military and 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 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 T. Eisenhour writes to the forum:
"Memorial Day is a day to honor all the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces, who served this great nation to keep this country free. All of the fallen comrades, veterans and those who still serve this nation need to be commended not only on Memorial Day but every day of the year."
In addition to the forum, VetFriends.com has posted a U.S. veteran and military tribute video thanking and honoring the many brave men and women who have and are currently serving the nation. The theme of the video: What do U.S. veterans and military personnel mean to VetFriends.com, and moreover to America. The original video can be viewed in its entirety and commented on at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2-ZN_9qlZs
