Too often, the stories of service and sacrifice of those who’ve borne the battle are never told. When they pass away, all that remains are some faded photos, a few medals and perhaps an old uniform.
To help preserve such memories, TogetherWeServed.com, or TWS, offers a digital platform to capture a Veteran’s entire military service from boot camp to separation. Each military service page displays a Veteran’s photos, rank insignia, medals, awards, badges, patches, dates and locations of boot camp, training schools and unit assignments. The page also shows any combat or non-combat operations.
Unlimited photographs from military service can be scanned and uploaded to a personal photo album. A step-by-step self interview called “Reflections” enables Veterans to recall memories of people and events that made an important impact on their lives. The result is a rich, visual presentation of a Veteran’s entire military service, displayed in a unique shadow box format.
These shadowboxes are available online to be downloaded or printed.
Veterans can purchase a printed version of the shadow box as an 18” wide poster.
“Together We Served is proud to serve our Veterans by providing them a secure place to preserve their service history, memories and photographs,” TWS President and Founder Brian Foster said. “It is vitally important their service to our country should never be forgotten.”
In addition, TWS is offering Veterans the opportunity to receive a free, versatile miniplaque of their military service. This plaque can be printed out as a desk or wall display, printed out as a business card, or displayed as an image on a mobile phone for Veteran ID or other service recognition purposes.
To create a military service page and obtain a free shadow box and or miniplaque, join TogetherWeServed.com. Veterans automatically receive a free one year premium membership to Together We Served, which provides full access to the military service pages of all 1.9 million TWS Veterans.
