MONTEVALLO, Ala. – The Veterans Register of Honors is a website and database that presents the names, photographs, biographies and personal narratives of the men and women who have served honorably in the armed forces under the flag of the United States from April 19, 1775 to the present day. The register contains the stories of hundreds of thousands of America’s veterans that have been submitted. The information, photos and videos submitted to the Register of Honor will be combined with other materials to create a mini-movie personalized to the veterans registered.

The Register of Honor will tell the compelling stories of those in every generation who answered their country’s call, and is dedicated to honoring America’s veterans and their service and sacrifice for the cause of liberty. The mission is to strengthen and renew the foundations of American liberty and self-government by engaging and inspiring citizens and leaders.

Registries may be done for yourself, a family member or a friend. Individuals currently serving or having served in the U.S. Army, Air Corps, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard or Merchant Marines are eligible for inclusion in the Register of Honor.

“I think this is a wonderful idea. Communities everywhere should have a vehicle available to learn about the service and sacrifice of America’s military veterans,” said Marty Farrell, commander of American Legion Post 201 in Alpharetta. “I personally know of no similar sites and I would be more than happy to assist in promoting the participation of American Legion Post 201’s 825 wartime veterans.”

The Register of Honor believes that each and every veteran that has served our country needs to be honored and appreciates all the submissions they receive. To submit a veteran or to view information of others, visit www.veteransregisterofhonor.com.
