A list of all unit possibilities containing that keyword or number is then presented and a selection can be made. Then by entering the timeframe served in that unit,’s search engine quickly looks up all other TWS members who served in that unit at the same time and delivers the total number of possibilities. is a free service that is entirely member-supported. Veterans are encouraged (but not required) to support the website by becoming a Full Member with additional benefits for $12.47 for 12 months.
