Tribute Video and a Brief Update

January 7, 2012

Another incredibly beautiful tribute video.

Project Update: We are working furiously to get a story a day up on the site. We know that there are many veterans out there who have a story to share, and deserve to be honored. It is just a matter of getting the word out and allowing them time to get their thoughts into writing. We are currently awaiting stories from around a dozen veterans. We need many more. We still have 361 days left in the year. We would really like to see a veteran honored each and every day.

We are also working on a new website to accompany the blog, more about that a little later. We are thrilled and excited by the tremendous support that we have received. We hare looking at partnering with some other wonderful organizations and working on adding resources to the new site that we hope will be beneficial. We have had some interest from the media. Our first news piece on the project ran in Hawkins Today Wednesday, thank you Carolynn Elder. Things are happening very quickly, but our main focus remains to honor our veterans.

If you are a veteran and would like to share your story, we would love to hear from you. If you know of anyone who would be interested in sharing their story, or if you have a friend or family member that you would like to honor in a memorial post, we want to hear from you as well.

You can contact us via the contact us tab at the top of the page or email us at 365vets at gmail dot com.

Please help us spread the word about the project. Thank you.

    I’m so thrilled you are getting the attention you deserve. This might be the most touching project / blog I have come across so far.

    Thank you so much for giving people a voice, that should be heard.

    It means the world to me

    🙂 K.

    Side note: There are a lot of clips on YouTube about home-coming soldiers rejoining their families. Wouldn’t it be nice to add those clips here too as a tribute. Just another side of the medal so to speak – Just an idle though 🙂

    You really deserve success (and publicity) for the wonderful work you are doing on this blog and elsewhere. I said the very first day that it would be difficult to keep to the schedule, but does the schedule really matter? When you are engaged in a project such as yours, there are bound to be delays and things that simply can’t be done in a day. It is the content which is important, the bringing to the notice of the greatest number the people, events, pain and simple courage of men and women who are just like us, except that they got caught up in or volunteered for horrific conflicts.
    Each and every one of your posts is moving. I am not American, but I have been moved to tears as I am a human being, and am sad and horrified at what human beings do to each other, and the manner in which the courageous are sometimes treated by their own nations.

      Thank you and you make an excellent point. It does not matter what country one is from we are all human beings and should show one another respect, love, and compassion.
      Thank you for your support and words of encouragement. I realize that I may not always be able to post a personal story here each and every day, but I do believe that we will be able to find and honor 365 Veterans by the years end. I am working on the publicity end of things and I think that once the word is out the stories will come to us a bit more easily. I believe in this project with all of my heart and we will do what it takes to make the project thrive, so that we can continue to honor these brave men and women.
