Together We Served (TWS) is proud to offer all Veterans the opportunity to find and connect with people they served with using its new free ‘Veteran Finder’ app, which was specially designed for Android and Apple mobile phones.

Find Veterans quickly and easily

Based on its acclaimed “Veterans Roll of Honor” tribute website, TWS’s app is a comprehensive directory of all 2.1 million Veteran members of its community website. Organized by service branch and with an easy to use search function, Veterans can discover people they trained or served with in their former units, squadrons, ships or bases. Simply by clicking on their name and logging in, Veterans can view their full service history, including medals and awards, insignia and badges, basic training unit, unit assignments, combat/non-combat operations, as well as photos and memories.

Make contact

Contact can be made via a convenient and secure “Message This Member” link, which will send a personal email to the recipient.

    Fellow Veterans, In response to some of the comments on this Blog article, we would like to provide the following information which we hope will be helpful:

    The principle of Together We Served is very simple: we provide a well-researched platform for Veterans to come together in an exclusive community which enables us, when you enter your assigned units in your service profile, to provide you with a list of all others who served in your units at the same time. This is a very significant benefit for those who wish to reconnect with those they served with. Also by entering your service history, which you can support with service memories and as many photographs as you wish, you create a lasting legacy of your military service which your family and future generations may appreciate.

    TWS is run by Veterans for Veterans and is member-supported similar to the American Legion, VFW, AMVETS and other military-related organizations. However, all VA Veteran Members are provided a Free 1 Year Premium Membership via its exclusive VA Join Channel at the link shown at the bottom of the article – “Join the Together We Served App”.

    If you have any questions at all please contact us at admin@togetherweserved.com.

    They make you put in all of your information BEFORE letting you know you have to buy a subscription in order to see anyone else. Deleted.

    Tried to download it, too many kick-backs and difficulties setting up my profile/signing in. Removed the app from my phone.

      Greg: We’ve had many thousands of downloads and sorry to hear you incurred some difficulty. Download should be straightforward.

    John: The fundamentals of TWS are very simple: we provide a very well-researched platform for Veterans to come together in an exclusive community which allows through your posting of your service history for us to match you with others who served with you at the same time. This is a very strong benefit for those who wish to reconnect with those they served with.

    It does require you to enter the Units you were in and even the registration process allows you to enter your most significant unit which we will then provide you with all the other Members who served with you.

      This site is not a public service for veterans. It is a right leaning site propagating Fox News and Sucker Carlson. I was naive and joined and gave them my personal information thinking the VA had my back. I did not expect to join any political group. I will not trust the VA again.

    I do not own a cell phone but I use a computer all the time. Is there any way I can get on the Veteran Finder App?

  7. Marc Brandl November 11, 2021 at 7:10 pm - Reply

    This is great idea. Some people have been completely gone of my life and would like to talk with them again, Marc

    • TWS Admin November 12, 2021 at 9:08 am - Reply

      Marc Thanks for the kudos. Together We Served was launched in 2003 with one Veteran and has now grown to 2.1 million. As a Veteran-only family of websites – one website for each of the 5 branches of service – it has become a close community of Veterans from all eras from WW2 to present day.

      Simply by entering the units, bases and duty stations you were assigned to and the years you were in we cross-match your service with all other members and provide you with a list of all who served in your units at the same time as you. This is helpful if you have forgotten some names.

      We look forward to welcoming you on board Together We Served at https://join.togetherweserved.com/va

    This scam is similar to classmates and all of the other sites out their that think they can be the center of the universe for putting old friends back together.

    You have to give them your information right off the bat whether or not you decide to pay the annual subscription that would allow you to find other suckers who donated their personal information to an organization that is charging people for your personal information. Don’t join is my recommendation. I will wait until the V.A. has their own TRULY FREE app reserved exclusively for veterans under the care of the V.A. Once that happens togetherweserved.com will be just another internet has been.

      Steve – Sorry you seem to have the completely wrong impression of Together We Served which is a website and app run by Veterans for Veterans.

      The fundamentals of TWS are very simple: we provide a very well-researched platform for Veterans to come together in an exclusive community which allows through your posting of your service history for us to match you with others who served with you at the same time. This is a very strong benefit for those who wish to reconnect with those they served with.

      When you enter your service history, which you can support with your memories and photographs you create a lasting legacy of your military service for the benefit of your family and future generations.

      TWS is membership-supported just like the American Legion, the VFW, AMVETS and other military-related organizations. TWS provides all VA Members Free Premium Membership via the exclusive VA Join Channel at:

    Horrible app. Unable to even setup a account. eg: Officers do not have a MOS among other positions. Forget this App.

    • TWS Admin November 12, 2021 at 9:23 am - Reply

      Charles – Actually the feedback on the App is very positive. Sorry you’re having difficulty joining as we have every MOS available from WW2 to present day in our database for your selection.

      We have a Veteran manned Help Desk on our website which allows us to help you with every facet of joining. Or you can email us at admin@togetherweserved.com.

      Please contact us and we will help you out,

    I downloaded the app with the understanding that the service is free, but after download it showed that the PURCHASE is in effect!!
    WHAT purchase?????

  18. John November 10, 2021 at 11:40 pm - Reply

    This gets me nowhere. I start in one area and it kind of dribbles into another area and pretty soon it’s just to get to be boring. I do want to locate my buddies. Take care.

      Agree, a pain in the butt to navigate so I seldom check it out.
