Even though our involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan is winding down, hundreds of thousands of service members are stationed away from their families. announced today that it is working with the NY National Guard to provide their military personnel with access to free accounts with, KeepTree’s military label communication service.

“We’re very happy with how awareness for our service continues to build within the military. Even though our involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan is winding down, hundreds of thousands of service members are stationed away from their families,” said Jon Loew, CEO of allows active duty military personnel to exchange video messages with their families for free, without the need for a simultaneous internet connection, often difficult to achieve in a war zone, between time zones, or both. TroopTree uses a computer’s webcam to record directly to their archive so no uploading or separate recording software is necessary. Users may also archive the videos indefinitely, and may record videos for delivery in the future.

KeepTree’s Future Delivery Service sets it apart from other messaging services, because it provides members with the unique ability to record messages, archive them, and schedule them to be delivered automatically on a specific date in the future, whether one week or 30 years from now.

”I’ve been there, I know what it’s like being deployed away from your family or just stationed overseas and struggling with communicating with friends and loved ones,” remarked retired Major General Mark Volcheff and Troop Tree advisor. “Troop Tree provides a wonderfully unique way to eliminate time zone issues as well as being able to store family or personal videos forever. A hundred years from now, my great great grand kids will have my videos as part of their video family tree.”

“We’re well aware that some of the videos recorded on may become the last memories of loved ones some families get to hold on to. We treating them as ‘holy’,” Loew continued.

TroopTree also allows members of the public to visit the site and record “thank you” videos to members of our armed services. Service members may then visit the TroopTree site to view the “thank you” videos, and browse them by service branch.
