About Us

We are two moms (Tina & Jennifer) who are on a mission to honor a Veteran a day, every day of the year. We want to honor veterans through their stories told in their own words. Our goals are simple. We want to honor our heroes, raise awareness about the issues veterans face every day, and preserve veteran’s stories for future generations.

We both have a long line of service members in our family. We are passionate about honoring our service men and women, and about veteran’s rights. We are currently working on a website that will accompany the blog. We feel that is important to provide a community driven space for our members. We want to offer them an interactive site where they can Communicate and Connect,  Share Their Stories and Resources, Start Support Groups, Form Grassroots Movements,  and Coordinate Advocacy Efforts. More importantly, we want to create a place where our heroes are honored every day of their lives. These men, women, and families who have sacrificed so much for our country deserve nothing less.

Project 365 Vets is actively seeking veterans who would like to share their stories.  Wednesday’s have been set aside for Memorial Stories so that those who would like to honor a fallen hero may also participate.

Those interested in participating in the project are encouraged contact the project founder Tina Shang at 365vets@gmail.com

    Dear Tina and Jennifer,

    I got to your blog when you began following mine. Your blog is similar to mine – we’re both honouring someone we are grateful to. I like the concept of your blog because you are honouring people you have not ever met and didn’t even know. That is wonderful, I think.

    When I watched a video clip about Memorial Day a little while ago, I thought of your blog and decided to say something. (At last!)

    I do not like the concept of war, and was one of those who participated in the anti-Iraq war walk in Toronto. I did it back then because my young, idealistic mind believed that war, any war, is wrong. Today, I still believe that. But I’ve also come to understand and accept those who have the exact opposite belief (on whatever matter) to mine. Which is why today, I decided to leave a comment here.

    >More importantly, we want to create a place where our heroes are honored every day of their lives. These men, women, and families who have sacrificed so much for our country deserve nothing less.
    – I gave my whole ‘no war’ stance some thought over the years, and I realised that the other equally important reason I do not support the war option is because I am afraid. I’m too much of a wuss to risk my own life and I don’t even want to think of anyone dear to me losing their lives.

    But to those who have the courage to risk it all for what they believe in, I say, “Good on you!”. And “Thank you”.

    Prayers for your safe return to your loved ones. *fingers crossed* Prayers also for strength to those who have lost a loved one. :-(

    Kate

    What you two are doing is simply tremendous. Too many times have we forgotten about those who keep us free. I have a page on my blog, “Poetry by Bradley Peraino” dedicated to Wounded Warriors aptly titled, “Poetry for Wounded Warriors”.

    Again, Thank you guys for doing this. It’s an amazing Blog!!!

    Thank you for subscribing to follow The Gift of Freedom. Veterans are historically among America’s most underappreciated human assets, as few people can truly understand what it means to nurture and protect this precious gift with their own blood, sweat, and tears like our servicemen and women. To that end, it is always refreshing to find people who are willing to put their own energy and enthusiasm into recognizing the value that this surprisingly small portion of society brings to our lives.

    “All gave some; some gave all.”

    I’m glad our blogs crossed paths and I was able to learn about your work for our military. Thank you for sharing their stories.

    I made a MILITARY FUNERAL music from famous J.S.Bach Air in BWV 1068, because this old theme is in such use in especially the protestant quarters of German Military.
    I offer to your blog FREE audio – http://ubuntuone.com/3qgUbBVDgKFjzNNbUYgOea – because paper-edition would be for non musical professionals uninteresting.

    This is so awesome that you’re doing this. I loved my time in the Air Force. I served eight years as an aircraft maintenance officer from ’85-’93. Had the privilege of meeting so many great and selfless people.

    Thanks again for your commitment and compassion in posting these stories.
