Mission Statement

MyVetwork is the first online community specifically designed for the U.S. military and their families and supporters that provide the tools for people to connect and interact with each other and exchange information on getting the services and resources they need, including jobs.

Description

MyVetwork (www.myvetwork.com) provides the solid foundation for a vibrant network of support in the spirit of that sacred trust to improve the lives of not only our active duty personnel and the 600,000 veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, but all our nation's estimated 23 million living military veterans - and their families, too. MyVetwork supports this community--for the first time--in three intersecting ways that add up to the one trusted source that everyone with a connection to the U.S. military knows is crucially needed: Connection: An easy to use--free--means for our service men and women (all branches, all conflicts, whether active duty, veterans or retired) and their extended families to connect and shape their own community where they can interact and exchange information on getting the services and resources they need (replacing current "Needle in a haystack" searches with the badly needed "Bingo. Found it!" laser-like search). Employs a cool Pin View that makes it easy to: o Locate people you know, like buddies from combat o Find people you don't know, the very people--living nearby or half a world away--with whom you most want to connect based on values, interests, concerns, and specific experiences you've identified as important o Find jobs the MyVetwork way: the "job board on steroids" helps find work that matches your interests and skill sets, and helps vet-friendly employers ensure vets get first-look opportunity at available positions. Information: MyVetwork is building the innovative "Milipedia" with content specifically shaped by and for the military community, continually adapting to the needs of service personnel and their families and updating the information they seek, especially in the areas of healthcare, education, money and finance, and careering. Whether cutting through the red tape to benefits programs available from the VA; differentiating the proliferation of local services and programs; or finding specific people offering advice and support, Milipedia info has the added advantage of being "vetted" by military personnel who can vouch for the value of the proffered service/information (think "Military meets Wikipedia meets Zagat guide"). Organizational Umbrella: Finally, a place for unwinding the organizational maze, categorizing all the available services, the scores of organizations, the many websites and the hundreds of community programs already providing support for our military and their families, giving them the best possible means to showcase themselves to the military community with the accompanying opportunity to increase membership, even raise needed funds. All in one place. All for free. Founded by decorated veteran John R. Campbell, MyVetwork draws on the "secret sauce" of the military, the "I've-walked-in-your-shoes" strength military personnel willingly share with one another, which will be a driving force behind MyVetwork.
