CHATSWORTH, Calif., Nov. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- This Veterans Day, Together We Served (TWS) - the leading online military heritage organization, with over 1.6 million U.S. military veteran service profiles, is sending a heartfelt S.O.S. to all family members of living military veterans. Together We Served's "Save Our Veterans' Stories" initiative is an unprecedented national campaign inviting family members to gather their veteran's service history, memories, photographs, and memorabilia and preserve these for posterity on TogetherWeServed.org.
Each day, more than two thousand WWII, Korean War, Cold War and Vietnam War era veterans pass away, often taking their stories with them. Together We Served is in a race against time to help capture the service history and memories of these aging former servicemen and women before it is too late. With the help of a fully illustrated guide, creating a veteran's military service page on TogetherWeServed.org has been designed to be an easy and rewarding experience. Once completed, each veteran's service page contains his or her photo in uniform, entire service history, plus all medals, badges, insignia and photographs presented in a unique, "shadow box" format which can be printed, framed, and shared via a personal web-link. Also included, is a self-interview called "Service Reflections" which helps veterans recall the people and events that shaped their lives forever.
