ASU develops social networking site for veterans

Website developers at Arizona State University have created a new social networking website that helps veterans share their combat stories.

Eli Chmouni and other mechanical engineers are behind alphastripe.com.

“It’s an online platform that allows anyone who has been in conflict — especially the military, their family, friends and supporters, humanitarian aid groups or just civilians who were caught in conflict — to record their stories and share their memories in video, photo, audio and text format,” he said.

Chmouni compared the site to an online time capsule designed to connect veterans and preserve stories.

“It’s an online memory repository of conflict for future generations,” he said.

The site currently has video from Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Lebanon.

The site is currently in beta testing and will be formerly launched on July 4.
