Charleston, SC: https://www.VetFriends.com – the largest Web site for reuniting U.S. military veterans, carries the spirit of Veterans Day by carrying out its own tradition: the annual Veterans Day "Honor & Thanks" campaign. As part of this campaign, the site offers a nationwide parade directory, a Veterans Resources blog, a Veteran Discount Center and photo tribute – free for all to view. Additionally, veterans can use the already existing site functions to search for and reconnect with service-time friends and family nationwide.
The VetFriends Veterans Day parade/events directory is available for people to find events in their communities to show their support. The directory will include the location, date, and time of each listed event. Coordinators along with community residents can submit and register their events at https://www.vetfriends.com/parades.
The VetFriends Veterans Resources blog can viewed at https://www.vetfriends.com/blog/. Veterans and their families are invited to visit the blog and find helpful information on military veteran benefits; military days in history; veteran reunion stories; resource articles and more.
The Veterans Discount Center at https://www.vetfriends.com/veteran-discount-center/ provides a centralized listing of local and national veteran discounts. The discount directory is updated weekly, and is displayed on the VetFriends.com site. By allowing businesses to post their special veteran pricing freely on the network, the Veterans Discount Center provides an ideal opportunity for companies to give back and thank our U.S. military veterans.
The VetFriends.com photo collection at https://www.vetfriends.com/militarypics is comprised of thousands of pictures in honor of U.S. veterans and military personnel. Visitors can search for images by specific military branch, military base, year, war, state, or country. Each picture contains background information along with a brief message and/or description. Honor a loved one who served and post their photo in the VetFriends collection.
After reuniting with a Vietnam service buddy through VetFriends.com, veteran K. D. Herbert writes to VetFriends.com:
"A couple of months after posting my photo, I received an e-mail from VetFriends saying someone was trying to get in touch with me. It turned out to be the photographer of my picture and a friend...We have since been exchanging e-mails and he has even added a few pictures of his own to VetFriends too...It was fantastic to hear from him. Thank you VetFriends."
Veterans wear their medals and ribbons with pride on Veterans Day, as they take part in parades, events and ceremonies. The VetFriends.com Military Ribbons/Awards page creator allows veterans to display their decorations in a new and unique way. Veterans can select their military ribbons and awards online – to then be displayed in order of rank on a personal awards page with details including the date awarded, location, service friends present, military stories and more. Veterans are invited to create this free profile at: https://www.vetfriends.com/new_member/index.cfm.
