    Dear Ron,

    One of the best ways to show concern and help our soldiers with their issues can be found by reading about and visiting my website. By using your vast wealth of resources we can reunite veterans who can help themselves by helping each other.
    That is EMPOWERMENT!!!

    My name is Marty Ford. I served in the USAF from 1969-1973. I live in Morris County, New Jersey.

    My website is http://www.connectwithveterans.com

    It is THE way for all former and current military personnel from all branches of the Armed Forces to register, connect and continue that very special and unique relationship formed while in uniform serving our country. The cost is minimal. The rewards are PRICELESS!!! The more people who register the more connections will be made. Recently, I had lunch with a “buddie” who I have not seen or spoken to in forty years. I do not want others to have to wait that long to connect with their military friends.

    I created my website for many reasons one of which was a chance meeting with three veterans at an interstate rest stop on Memorial Day Weekend. We were on our way to our son’s soccer game. They were participating in a “coffee break” weekend sponsored by the local American Legion Post. They were giving out coffee, hot dogs and cookies to travelers.

    I spoke to each veteran individually as they knew each other but were circulating through the crowd. All three shared not only the common ground of military service but the affects of front line duty as they suffered and struggled with PTSD among other ailments. They told me they were on prescription medications which they did not like because of the way the medicine made them feel.They told me they went to “therapy” once a week which was not of much use and help due to the lack of leadership. I asked each veteran if they would feel better talking with their ‘buddies” from “over there” the ones who walked in their shoes and with whom they shared the same experiences. Each told me “yes” with their words, but more significantly, with the smiles on their faces. Those three guys are the ones we need to reach, as well as, the guys my age (62) who wonder whatever happened to ____________?

    I ask that you read through my website and use your position, influence, contacts, connections and sponsorship to help spread the word about my website. Everyone knows someone who has served or who is serving in the military. Now they have the method to get and stay connected. Perhaps you can add my website as a link to your website. A mere mention of my website from you and your colleagues will open the door so many veterans can walk through to reunite with their “buddies”.

    I developed, created and pay for everything associated with my website. The registration and renewal fees are for covering the expenses for running my website. All other money will be used to distribute to deserving Veterans and their families. I did not mention this in the narrative portion of my website since I did not want to offer something I am yet to be able to deliver. Once the money accumulates I will add this information to my website.

    I hope you find my website of value and worthy of inclusion in your personal life and professional career.

    I appreciate and thank you for your consideration.

    Respectfully,
    Marty Ford
