Great Americans

There are two new sites online called Great Americans and Great Americans.org.

According to the email I received from the site creators, "Great Americans celebrates and honors citizens in every area of society who are “everyday heroes”, focusing on those who serve America: the military and law enforcement.

At GreatAmericans.com you’ll find countless inspiring stories and videos submitted by people all across the country.

The purpose of Great Americans is to celebrate people in every area of society whose lives offer a positive example to others. Great Americans currently consists of GreatAmericans.com, where visitors can login and upload videos or simply check out the website for segments featuring military, law enforcement, fire/rescue, NASA, Homeland Security and everyday American heroes. The new addition of GreatAmericans.org is a sister site featuring weekly award-winning videos, news, a network blogroll and more.

'The mission of Great Americans is to tell the stories of the positive role models of our time,' said Daniels. 'What better place to start than with the stories of men and women in uniform who put their lives at risk to protect the rest of us, both at home and abroad'."
