Tributes.com Introduces the Military Tribute


Tributes.com Creates New Online Memorials Honoring Military Veterans
Obituary News Site Helps Families Remember Deceased US Veterans and Those Lost at War

BOSTON, MA ­– November 2, 2009 – Tributes.com, the online resource for local and national obituary news and multimedia tributes, announced today that they have added a new product to their line of online memorial offerings specifically designed to help families honor lost loved ones who served in the U.S. military. Tributes.com is now providing families with easy-to-use tools to create a lasting military tribute, complete with information on their loved one's time of service, duty stations and deployments, photo slideshows for military memories, as well as branch specific themes, as a way to honor and remember their fallen heroes.

Tributes.com has partnered with SplashFX Inc. (www.splashfx.com) an interactive solutions firm that provides engaging military shadowboxes that can be customized to showcase the deceased veteran’s awards and badges earned during their time of service. This is an exciting way to preserve and celebrate their accomplishments. These capabilities add to the site’s existing tribute creation tools that allow the addition of videos, music and the creation of photo slideshows, making it simple for users to share meaningful remembrances of their beloved veteran.

“By allowing families to create military tributes, we hope to honor the decades of veterans who have served our country,” said Elaine Haney, President of Tributes.com. “With our help, families can capture the invaluable stories of veterans from the World War era through present day. With over 4,000 veterans lost in recent conflicts alone, it is more important than ever that we focus on a special recognition for our most valued citizens.”

”Creating a tribute for my father was an emotional experience for me and my entire family. We dug up his old photos to create the slideshow, added his medals he was so proud of, and included his precious stories about his service with the Coast Guard. It means so much to me that my children and grandchildren will be able to visit this beautiful tribute and learn about the wonderful man their grandfather and great-grandfather was,” said Terry DuBois, who created a military tribute for her father Victor. http://www.tributes.com/VictorDuBois
