In addition to the two new states, TroopTree is already working with National Guard Units in New York, Texas, Florida, Arizona, Nebraska, Minnesota, Georgia, and Illinois.

“More National Guard Units continue to see the value of a service like TroopTree and want to join us in making sure that our troops can take advantage of it. It’s extremely exciting,” said Brody Ehrlich, Director of Business Development. was launched by in December 2011 as a free service for military families to stay in touch with their deployed loved ones using an Internet-based video messaging system. Using a webcam, iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, families can send videos to soldiers deployed abroad, who often have limited access to telecommunications. The videos are delivered to a user’s dedicated in-box on and do not require the sender and recipient to be on-line at the same time. Servicemen and women can reply with their own video, sharing messages immediately, or using the proprietary FutureSendTM function to deliver a message at a specific time in the future. Videos can also be stored forever in’s VideoVault.

“When servicemen and women are deployed and in the field, they often have limited access to telecommunications, and even when they do, it’s extremely difficult to schedule a call or video chat with an 8-plus hour time difference and busy schedules,” says Jon Loew, Chief Executive Officer. “TroopTree’s features are designed specifically to work around that hurdle. It provides users with the ability to see their spouse’s smile, their child’s Halloween costume, and their parents’ look of love and support, when they would otherwise be unable to. And it all gets saved forever.”

TroopTree also allows the public to show support for the military families. features a Thank You Vault, where people can come and record videos of support and thanks to the men and women serving our country. Celebrities and athletes, such as Nick Cannon (America’s Got Talent), Jesse Bradford (Guys with Kids), Ahmad Bradshaw (New York Giants), and Ryan Phillippe (Flags of Our Fathers), have all recorded videos.
