Historical U.S. Military Photo Collection Pays Tribute to U.S. Veterans

On Veterans Day, Americans will come together to show their thanks to U.S. veterans and active military personnel. In the same spirit of gratitude, VetFriends.com — the largest Web site for reconnecting U.S. veterans — encourages the community to visit the VetFriends online collection of authentic military photos, in honor of the many brave men and women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. All photos are submitted by U.S. veterans, active military, family, and friends — with photos spanning from pre-World War I, Korea, Vietnam, Iraqi Freedom to the present.

The photo collection, found at https://www.vetfriends.com/militarypics, is comprised of thousands of pictures and allows visitors to browse by year, location, specific military branch, conflict, or military unit. Each picture contains background information along with a message and/or description.

In many cases, the posting of a military photo can lead to U.S. service buddies reconnecting with one another, as was the case for Vietnam veteran K. David Herbert:

Thank you VetFriends.”

The VetFriends.com Military Photo Album creator allows veterans to display their military photos with ease. Veterans can upload their service photos – to then be displayed on a personal profile page, alongside with background information associated with the photo, such as the military unit; date; location; service friends present; and description. Veterans are invited to create a free profile at: https://www.vetfriends.com/new_member/index.cfm.
