Being in the website design business is rewarding for a whole host of reasons–no pun intended. One of the best parts about our work is showcasing worthwhile content for important local causes.
About a year ago, we built a website for Glory Denied, a Tom Cipullo production put on by the Tri Cities Opera telling the story of Floyd James “Jim” Thompson, the longest-held prisoner of war in U.S. history who spent almost nine years captive in Vietnam.
The clean, accessible website is a forum meant to collect the stories of local servicemen/women, as well as ‘in memory’ stories from family members of U.S. veterans. The Glory Denied site also features information regarding the 9 Days of Appreciating Your Servicemen (9 D.A.Y.S) program.
9 D.A.Y.S. is a local program, beginning November 6, aimed at raising awareness about the issues facing our veterans when they rejoin civilian life through different events, performances, presentations and more.
In addition to the creation of the Glory Denied website, we also created a book comprised of key information about Glory Denied, this year’s 9 D.A.Y.S. program and some of the incredible stories collected through the website, to be distributed throughout this year’s program.
We are proud to sponsor and contribute to such an important and meaningful cause for the brave men and women who have served our country.
Visit the Glory Denied website today to submit yours or a loved one’s story, and/or to learn more about the different events making up this year’s 9 D.A.Y.S. program.
