“Saluting America’s Veterans” is a new website where U.S. military veterans are being invited to share personal remembrances, photos, and videos documenting their war experiences. The site’s being launched this week in conjunction with “The War,” the new Ken Burns documentary that tells the story of WWII from the perspective of a handful of service members. Anchored by a profile of Burns and exclusive video excerpts from the documentary, this interactive, multimedia website aims to serve as a living museum, a first-hand memorial dedicated to veterans of all wars and all military branches. Rounding out the site are dozens of features about American veterans originally published in American Profile, the weekly print magazine that celebrates hometown life.
