TogetherWeServed.com announced yesterday that they are urging military veterans to join the social media and historical database website this Memorial Day Weekend in order to create a record of their military service for the benefit of their families as well as future generations. The website is capturing the history of military personnel in their own words as well as personal photographs in order to create an online historical database. TogetherWeServed.com is the perfect opportunity for Silicon Valley veterans to connect and share their experiences from World War II, Korea, Vietnam or any military conflict.
From Brian Foster, Founder, President TogetherWeServed.com: “In 10 years we’ve lost more than 4 million veterans to old age and other lasting consequences of war, and 3.000 more away every day. If we don’t capture their stories now, most of these veterans’ service will go unrecorded, resulting in a tragic loss of our military history and the sacrifice made by so many.”
Designed and created by military service members, TogetherWeServed.com is the largest social media website and form of recording history for US Veterans and military personnel. The exclusive website includes all military branches and currently includes over 1.2 million service members with over 2.5 million photographs. The website has one of the largest photo memoirs in existence.
Members of TogetherWeServed.com can share memories from Boot Camp through retirement. Members can also create “Remembrance Profiles” for friends and family members who fell during combat in any military conflict.
“TogetherWeServed.com is a living, breathing memorial to our nation’s service members. There’s absolutely nothing else like it to honor the service of our veterans, including those who are no longer with us.” –Col. Brendan Hearney, USMC (Ret.) TogetherWeServed.com Military Advisor and Gulf War veteran.
TogetherWeServed.com also acts like a traditional social media website where veterans can re-connect and find one another through the website. Many veterans are re-connecting with friends from forty years ago.
“With more than a million members from every era of service since World War II and thousands more joining each week, the chances of finding someone you served with are very high.” -Brian Foster.
Current and former military members who are interested in joining or learning more about TogetherWeServed.com can visit togetherweserved.com or call Military Heritage Director Denise Kincaid at 1-888-398-3262.
