DON'T LET THEIR MILITARY MEMORIES FADE AWAY!
Too often, the stories of service and sacrifice of our Veterans are
never told and when they finally leave us, some faded photos, a
few medals, and perhaps an old uniform are all that are left to
remember what they did serving our country.
Together We Served's mission is to provide the opportunity for every family member to sit down with their Veteran and record their military service and memories, in their own words and photographs, so that their story may live on for their children, grandchildren, and future generations.
EASY TO COMPLETE PAGE FORMAT USING OUR STEP BY STEP HELP GUIDE
Gather their service information
Your fully illustrated, step by step Help Guide will be sent to you in your welcome email. This enables you to interpret your Veteran's discharge certificate, identify medals, badges and insignia and can be used as a convenient worksheet.
Gather your Veteran's discharge certificate, if available, along with all service photos, medals and awards, insignia, badges and citations.
Work with your Veteran to enter as much information as possible into the Help Guide. Mark all the medal ribbons, insignia and badges awarded. Scan discharge certificate and service photos to upload to their service page photo albums.
Now you are ready to start building their military service page which you can invite other family members to view or assist with.
If you no longer have the discharge certificate for your Veteran, you may request a copy HERE.
Build their military service Page
Enter all the information gathered on the Help Guide into your Veteran's military service page. Need help? Our online Help Desk, located at the bottom left of your screen, is just a click away!
A complete service history will appear, complete with medal ribbons worn exactly as on uniform with all badges, insignia and unit patches correctly displayed.
Add their photos to their photo albums - an album is available for each event in their service career - boot camp, unit assignment or duty station, combat operation etc.
Click on the 'Shadow Box' link on their military service page to view a unique and beautifully illustrated presentation of your Veteran's military service which can be shared, via a personal web address, or printed out and framed.
Capture their service Memories
Capture your Veterans military memories in a feature called Service Reflections which becomes an integral part of their military 'Shadow Box'.
Service Reflections is an easy-to-complete self-interview designed to help you record any information about key people and events your Veteran may have told you about their military service. You can support these Reflections with inserted photos.
Once their written Reflections is completed, your Veteran is well prepared to recount their military memories in a video record if you choose to do so.
Using the Reflections interview questions to guide the session, record your Veteran remembering their service using any recording device - smartphone, tablet or video camera. You can now upload your video to their Together We Served military service page for the most complete, most shareable, record of your Veteran's military history available.
