Online communities for military veterans

Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA)
IAVA is the country's first and largest nonprofit, nonpartisan organization for veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. With more than 200,000 Member Veterans and civilian supporters nationwide, IAVA is building the next greatest generation with a three-pronged model based on advocacy, awareness, and assistance. IAVA programs empower our community online and offline, and include Smart Job Fairs, our signature New GI Bill calculator and Community of Veterans, a veterans only social network.

Reuniting After War
Reuniting After War brings together the brave men and women who served together
By providing an opportunity for these Veterans to reconnect, we hope to provide them with emotional support and reduce the disconnected feelings that are often associated with a deployment ending or a return to civilian life. Through these reunions, we hope to maintain the strong connections created during their time in service and help them transition into the next phase of their lives. Our focus will be primarily to reunite combat units who had troops KIA while in the theater of war.

Together We Served
Creating lasting legacies, friendships and connections for its members as the largest exclusively military network of its type, Together We Served enables veterans and active duty personnel to re-connect with lost brothers and sisters, share in the camaraderie of other servicemen and women, and create a permanent record of their service so this may never be forgotten.

Valor is a ministry for college and high school ROTC cadets and midshipmen, veterans on college campuses, and cadets at foreign military service academies.

Valor has three objectives: To GUIDE you in deepening your faith, COACH you towards resources, networks and communities, SENDING you towards increased effectiveness as a military officer.

Valor doesn’t replace or detract from the training and experience you get at an academy or in a commissioning program like ROTC. Instead, Valor enhances discipline, integrity, devotion, and resilience of cadets and veteran students all over the world.

Valor usually consists of weekly Bible Studies, social activities and retreats with other cadets/midshipmen from your region.

Vet Friends
We are honored to serve you. Special bonds are formed between U.S. military personnel who have and are serving side by side in the U.S. Armed Forces. These friendships can withstand the test of time, serving side by side with your brothers & sisters in arms. 

With this idea in mind, was created by a proud U.S. Veteran and has grown to over 1,200,000 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.
