A new application has been created to help Facebook users pay tribute to fallen soldiers. As reported by MSNBC, a Facebook app set to go live Memorial Day is part of a campaign to help honor American soldiers who have lost their lives in service. Government and U.S. military pages are reportedly promoting the National Moment of Remembrance Facebook application, including those of the White House, Air Force, Army, Navy, and President Barack Obama.
Facebook representative Alex Kirschner is quoted in the report as stating of the app, “The hope is to get as many Facebook users as possible to update their status with a message that honors a soldier and the war in which they fell as a casualty…Users can push a button to pay tribute to a soldier selected randomly from a database provided by the White House, or if they’d rather honor a loved one, they can insert specific information (name, war involved in, etc.) to create their status.”
