Returning HomeCreate, share, honor.
About this project
Returning Home is an online interactive resource that creates a welcoming space to share stories of our men and women in uniform—from those who served in the first World War to those returning from the current conflicts. Working with a client-designed concept, Pearse Street integrated its core social network features as well as advanced social media integration and the ability to attach multimedia files to both blog stories and community groups.
The resources provided on the Returning Home site will allow family and friends of our uniformed men and women, as well as those supporting our troops during the war effort, to have a place of their own—to be honored and remembered. In addition, many of the stories on the site will be archived at the Library of Congress so that these men and women will forever be a part of history.
Returning Home is a politics-free site designed to help troops and communities open the lines of communication and begin to heal and support each other. Medical professionals, historians, and schools will be utilizing this site as a resource to help others heal as well as teach others about the duties and sacrifices of those in uniform.
