Veteran Website allows Thousand of Tri-Cities Veterans to stay in touch
TRI-CITIES, Wash. - There are thousands of veterans in the Tri-Cities and many of them have lost touch with other service members.
But now there is a new website to help keep them connected. www.USvetspace.com is a social networking website made specifically for the 30 million American Veterans.
Many Tri-City Veterans groups say they think it is a great idea. The website is designed to provide veterans with information about benefits, the latest veteran news and help them connect with other service members.
Richland VFW Commander Al Barron said the website could provide a place for them to relate and connect with each other.
Barron said, "Many people come back from overseas sort of empty, but they don't feel like they can relate to their families and people they grew up with in their home areas."
The website would also give them the ability to search for long lost military friends, send messages to each other and create personal profiles.
Barron said, "It's easy to lose track of service friends because everyone is from different places around the country."
