Charleston, SC: Carrying the spirit and tradition of honoring U.S. military veterans, VetFriends.com -- the largest Web site for reuniting U.S. veterans with over 1,700,000 members -- is celebrating its 14th annual Veterans Day campaign to support and honor U.S. military veterans and troops worldwide. The site features a Veterans Day parade listing directory, a 'Thank You' forum, a military photo tribute, military discounts and more. VetFriends was founded by a U.S. veteran in 2000 and continues to help reconnect and honor military veterans and personnel.
VetFriends.com founder, Corporal Sutcliffe, states: "Each and every day the entire VetFriends.com team takes time to express our thanks, appreciation and honor toward our veterans and service men and women -- whether it be through helping people reunite, providing information and support, or simply saying ‘Thank You.’ We are here for our veterans and military."
The VetFriends.com Veterans Day Tribute --
A Veterans Day nationwide parade/event directory can be viewed at https://www.vetfriends.com/parades. Visitors are invited to view and submit community parades and events celebrating Veterans Day. VetFriends.com asks all Americans to take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices and bravery of all those who have served their country in times of need.
The Veterans Discount Center at https://www.vetfriends.com/veteran-discount-center/ provides a simple way for veteran and military heroes, along with their family and friends, to search and find discounts locally and nationwide. New company discounts are updated weekly, and will be posted on the VetFriends.com site. The Veterans Discount Center provides an ideal platform for companies to acknowledge our U.S. military veterans by allowing them to post their special discounts for free on the network.
A Veterans Day 'Thank You' forum has been created on the VetFriends website at https://www.vetfriends.com/veteransday. VetFriends is asking veterans and anyone else interested in contributing their thoughts and insights regarding Veterans Day, or those interested in giving a message of thanks to veterans, to utilize the forum. These submissions are posted online in a Veterans Day collection for all to view and share.
On Veterans Day and throughout the holidays, VetFriends will be taking up to 50% off all the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard pride items within their online store to show their support and appreciation of all veterans and military service men and women. Additionally, visitors are invited to utilize Veterans Day coupon code VB for an additional 15% off all eligible items, including U.S. military caps, shirts, collectibles, patches, stickers and more.

As another symbol of support, VetFriends offers a Premium Membership I.D. card. For each cardholder, the card displays their name, branch, years of service and rank. As a benefit to all its members, VetFriends has created a network of companies that honor this card and offer special discounts to veterans and military personnel.

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 ceremonies were held -- all in celebration of the peace that had been won. In 1954, Nov. 11 was officially changed to Veterans Day, representing our nation's thanks, loyalty and respect to our military veterans. At VetFriends.com, the spirit of Veterans Day is carried throughout the year.
Founded in 2000 by a U.S. veteran, thousands of people have been reconnected through VetFriends.com, spanning from World War II, to Operation Desert Storm, and the present.
