Written by Christine Aquino April 22, 2021 0 comment

ARLINGTON, VA, April 22, 2021 – Military Times has launched a new self-service obituary platform to provide families of veterans with a free way to easily tell the story of their loved ones and their years of service. 

In partnership with iPublish Media Solutions and Legacy.com, the new Military Times obituary platform will offer a free, permanent online obituary of unlimited length for any veteran. Families and friends will be able to upload photos, share condolences in an online Guest Book, and announce service information. An enhanced Facebook promotion is also available for a modest fee. Obituaries can be published at obits.militarytimes.com and viewed at militarytimes.com/obits.

“We’re extremely proud to be able to offer this service to our readers. This is another very important way we can honor those who choose to serve in uniform and to memorialize their individual stories for family, friends and future generations,” said Andrew Tilghman, Executive Editor of Military Times.

The new veteran obituary section will become an important part of the Military Times’ Military Honor channel. Other Honor channel offerings include: Salute to Veterans, Military Appreciation Month, Service Members of the Year, Honor the Fallen, and Hall of Valor special content topics. 

“Legacy’s mission is to help life stories live on,” said Stopher Bartol, Chief Executive Office of Legacy.com. “We’re honored to partner with the Military Times to support the military community by publishing the legacies of our treasured veterans, sharing their service with generations to come.
