Minneapolis, MN, June 15, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- More American servicemen and women are on active duty in the military than at any point since WWII. The result is an incredible strain on the fabric of family life in America. Perhaps the greatest impact is being seen on families that have members in the Reserves; they are not used to being separated for such long periods of time.
These long periods of separation result in incredible strain on military families, especially the children. In any situation, it is important for families to stay connected – in the current war situation, it takes on a whole new meaning. Soldiers and their families have always been able to send pictures via snail mail and talk on the telephone. However, all too often, they are not able to see and bond with one another – as in the case of a Navy serviceman who was frustratingly unable to see his newborn child. Unfortunately, family members in the military often miss out on the most important moments of their lives.
Brian Peters and WebBizIdeas.com ( http://www.webbizideas.com ) have changed all that. Brian is a member of the Army Reserves and spent over a year on active duty. His experiences, and the experiences of his fellow soldiers of the frustration of being disconnected from family members, and being unable to see them, drove him to develop a website that would fill this growing need. He decided to create a solution that would be strictly dedicated to military video sharing ( http://www.miltube.com ) among members of the military and their families. After months of meticulous planning and single-minded dedication, MilTube.com was born.
Brian explains his concept for Miltube this way: “When my partners and I were planning the site, we wanted it to be simple, profanity free, non-political and promote the building of families. In addition, we wanted to develop a site that allowed military units to create their own groups - as a way of promoting camaraderie among both unit members and the families of unit members. We’ve achieved all that and more by allowing MilTube.com users to share military videos ( http://www.miltube.com ). It’s so satisfying to see an idea like this, that will help those who sacrifice so much, finally come to fruition.”
In addition to having video sharing capability, there is one aspect of Miltube.com that really stands out - service members, families, and friends have the option to make their messages private. This makes it easier for families and friends to share intimate thoughts and moments with each other – even if they are thousands of miles away.
Brian Peters and his colleagues at WebBizIdeas have created a program within Miltube called “Operation Storytelling”. When he was in the military overseas, Brian noticed that there were a lot of service members that would record themselves reading a book to their children. They would then send a CD in the mail and have their children watch along at home. Operation Storytelling takes advantage of video sharing technology – so that families can enjoy reading together in real time.
Miltube was developed by a military member and caters exclusively to the courageous men and women in uniform that serve their country overseas. Brian Peterson and WebBizIdeas.com have made sure that they can have a bigger piece of home with them.
