Military Honor Roll Looking for Public Input

 

World War II Memorial in Washington D.C.

Brian Foster, the founder of TogetherWeServed.com is hoping to attract more  veterans to share their stories and photographs. Foster‘s original site is exclusive to current military members and veterans.

But, he has established a related site for the public to view “remembrance profiles” of 100,000 servicemembers who died serving in wars since World War II.

Foster told USA Today that the public can help fill in some of the blanks in the profiles.

“The public at large has all the information on these people, often in shoeboxes in attics, which will eventually get thrown out at some point,” said Foster, a Los Angeles resident, whose new site was officially launched Monday, but has been gradually rolling out the profiles of the fallen for about year. The site, he said, is a permanent repository for such information.

Each “Roll of Honor” profile can be searched by name and contains vitals — service pictures if available, cause of death, medals earned. It also has places for family members to post pictures, poems, letters and other memories of the fallen.
