|Part of The Memorial Day Web Site's mission is to be a central point for finding information on the day, and to provide an online community for people to share their feelings, pride, respect and honor for those that gave the ultimate sacrifice.|
Volunteer copies of Memorial Day Writings.
If you have any articles, essays, lyrics, poems, prayers or speeches relating to the US Memorial Day, please consider donating a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can add them to this page. You can send the writing as an ASCII, HTML, Word or WordPerfect document. Amatuer and professional works are both welcomed. Acceptance of work submitted is not automatic, I will only accept and post works I feel do not detract from the message and theme of the Memorial Day site, thus perfectly great works may not be accepted. All decisions are final. All personal writings will be credited to the owner and with a notice that they are for private downloading and viewing only, or for use on a non-commercial Memorial Day related web site (as long as credit to the author is given). Sending in writings is evidence that you have agreed with this policy. Please include your name, email or other contact information, name of the writing, date of the writing (if known), and a statement that you are the original author of the work being submitted, and that you agree to the above policy.
The focus is very narrow for the Memorial Day page. Thus, perfectly good sites that rightly honor our Vets are not listed because we are concentrating only sites and information that deals wholly on remembering and honoring those who have died in service to the United States of America. It's a fine line, sometimes, we will admit up front. We mean no dis-service to living Vets or those who survived the various wars and conflicts America was involved in. Rather, we mean only to heighten the honoring of our honored dead.
Also, if you have a website dedicated to a loved one who died while in active service for America, please consider sending us the URL so it can be added to the special personal (individual) memorial pages section of the Memorial Day site.
Email link suggestions to email@example.com.
If you want to link to the Memorial Day Site, you may do so as long as your site does not attack the honor or memory of those who have died in service to America. Visit the Linking Request page for logos and coding you can use.
Volunteer to translate the History section into another language.
If you are fluent in both English and a second language please consider volunteering to translate the Memorial Day History [www.usmemorialday.org/backgrnd.html] page to help others around the world to learn and know about the meaning and history of Memorial Day, and thus understand its importance to us. You will be credited with the translation and have the choice, if you desire, of having a link to your website or email address placed on the translated page as well. Please email the webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested and willing.
Volunteer to type up past Presidential Memorial Day speeches.
We are slowly adding past Presidential Memorial Day speeches to this web site. There are over 130 years worth to add and thus the process has been rather slow. Most are not online, the majority of them are in the government publication Public Papers of the Presidents of the United States which can be found at many libraries. If your local public or academic library has copies, please consider volunteering to locate a Memoirla Day speech or two from that publication and to type up a copy of them to send to us. Please email us at email@example.com before you start so that we can coordinate your efforts with that of others and thus avoid duplication of efforts.
Have your related site mirrored or preserved
As we are interested not only in being The Portal and Clearinghouse of Information pretaining to US Memorial Day, but are also interested in preserving all such information for prosperity, if you ever have an original Memorial Day related site that can no longer be maintained, please consider donating it to USMemorialDay.org. We will credit all original work. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your support.
