A A A, a unique social networking Web site exclusively oriented to US military, launches a support community to connect military personnel, veterans, friends, family and supporters worldwide.

With more than 24 million veterans and 2.3 million currently serving in the United States military, many feel a need to connect with one another to share experiences, make new connections while in and stay connected once discharged.

ArmedZilla founder and CEO David Johnson, a veteran with three tours to Iraq, developed the site based on his own experience.

"I had trouble transitioning to civilian life and felt the need for a support system of like-minded individuals," Johnson said. "ArmedZilla is the result."

The site reaches out to all military branches. Members join at no cost to share words of encouragement, reconnect with former buddies, get daily installation and base information, receive motivational and other useful assistance and interact with civilian friends and family.

Some features of the site include a bulletin board to post needs and requests, a "theme of the month" that allows members to preview videos that provide helpful information, and Installation Updates to keep up with current information. It will continue to evolve based on needs of the members.

"We are committed to providing our members with easy to use services that help them in their day-to-day lives," said Johnson. "Our goal is to create and maintain relationships, provide necessary and useful information and be a source of support during and after their service."

Johnson and co-founder Chris Ellis, who has built other social networks, said, "ArmedZilla has more meaning than all the other sites I've worked on put together!" 

Ellis worked directly with Johnson to assemble a team of professionals in Phoenix, AZ to build the brand. As of this release, they are rolling out the site for worldwide use.
