Letter from the founder of The Frontlines
As a boy, my father told me to be a boxer in life. For every hit, give one back in the form of a selfless act. This guidance has helped me through hardships, shifting focus from personal ailments to what I can do for others. This sense of service drives my deepest motivation to be an advocate for veterans and most importantly for restoring selfless service to America.
It is time for a renewed call to action to restore faith in government, promote active citizenship, and selfless service. Issues facing veterans are not only the veterans’ issues - they are American issues. Failure to recognize or address veterans’ problems weakens the armor of our society, abandoning those who served and sacrificed in the name of our country. Though the launch of Frontlines is a significant accomplishment, it is only the beginning step to transform our nation through engagement and support of active citizenship. I believe we can bridge the divide between military and civilian cultures, through promoting candid conversation regarding the cost of war to our nation and its protectors. Our brave service members require neither sympathy nor accolades, but rather a supportive environment where voices can be heard in an open, inclusive dialogue. It is only through preservation and education that our nation will remain great, and can we hope our grandchildren understand serving for a cause greater than oneself.
Thank you for your interest in The Frontlines. Simply by reading this you are helping achieve the mission of empowering members of the armed forces, veterans, family and friends through a network that provides resources, education, and the ability to creatively share stories from the front lines. Fronts Change. Memories Don’t.

The Frontlines Mission
To empower members of the armed forces, veterans, family and friends through a network that provides resources, education, and stories from the frontlines.
The Frontlines Vision
To assist veterans, military families, and members of any branch of the armed forces, to include the Coast Guard and National Guard, by filtering federal, state, and local organizations and their resources directly to the individual.
The Frontlines is all Encompassing
The Frontlines is a dedicated social utility network that enhances communication and information for veterans by uniting the over 400,000 uniform record locators and organizations that support veterans under one common operating system. The Frontlines accomplishes this mission by providing customized resources, blog, forum, and personalized social networks so that users can interact with one another, and possibly connect with former service members. Additionally, The Frontlines encompasses all forms of storytelling by utilizing social media in order to allow individuals to share their stories through videos, pictures, letters, art, or songs. There is also the ability to post book, movie and gear reviews of items of interest by those affiliated with the military. Lastly, The Frontlines is unique in that it affords a family member or veteran to create their own “dossier” listing their description of their service, campaigns, and any awards they may have had. This “dossier” represents a time capsule for future generations to use in order to have a better appreciation of the sacrifices their relatives made while serving in the armed forces.
