Our Mission: Helping Vets Reconnect with Military Friends


VetFriends was founded by a US Veteran in 2000. Since then, we've helped countless veterans and active personnel find and reconnect with their military friends - while offering thousands of military products to help veterans show their service pride.

Special bonds form between US military personnel who have and are serving side by side in the US Armed Forces. These friendships between brothers and sisters in arms often withstand the test of time. However, occasionally, people lose touch with one another when they change assignments or retire from duty. With this issue in mind, VetFriends was created by a proud US veteran and has grown to over 2,800,000 members -- the largest online veteran community today!

The mission of VetFriends: to reconnect, honor and support You, our U.S. Veteran and military brothers & sisters. Our promise is to do all that we can to make you happy. In 2000, the idea of an online Veteran registry came to our Veteran founder during a conversation with his father-in-law who is a Veteran as well. When asked whether he would attend a hypothetical reunion with his old Unit, his father-in-law responded: "I'd be on the next plane to see those guys!" Reflecting on the depth of this reply, our VetFriends founder realized that the special bonds of military brother and sisterhood are powerful and can withstand the test of time.... Now, these bonds can be re-established with the help of VetFriends.com & modern technology.

Our mission is to reconnect, honor, and support you, our US veteran and military brothers and sisters. We promise to do all that we can to make you happy.

The History of VetFriends

In 2000, the idea of an online veteran registry came to our founder during a conversation with his father-in-law, who is a veteran as well. When asked whether he would attend a hypothetical reunion with his old unit, his father-in-law responded, "I'd be on the next plane to see those guys!"

Reflecting on the heartfelt depth of this reply, our founder realized that the special bonds of military brother and sisterhood are powerful and can withstand the test of time. Now, these bonds can be re-established with the help of modern technology.

You have multiple options when using our veteran finder. First, you can search for a person individually. All you need is the first and last name. You may also browse our database by a military unit, a great option for those looking to reconnect with several friends. With over two and a half million members -- as well as millions of other public records -- we make it easy to find the people you're looking for.

Become a Member for More Benefits

While it is free to create a profile on our veteran registry, you get far more out of the site by becoming a member. With a membership, you get access to our entire database and search engine, as well as other perks. Best of all, there is no contract; you can stop your membership once you are finished finding friends.

Thank you for your service and support. We are honored to serve you and invite you to join VetFriends today!
