To commemorate Veterans Day ,Google today launched Google for Veterans and Families, an online resource center that allows vets to take advantage of Google services customized for their needs.

The site is made up of four main tools- VetConnect allows vets to connect with others on Google+, Google Veterans Channel is a YouTube channel for videos and discussions related to military service, Resume Builder powered by Google Docs provides auto-formatted resumes, and Tour Builder powered by Google Earth (coming soon) to display “3D maps of veterans’ service histories, complete with photos and videos”.

Google also this week opened up the Veterans Job Bank, a customized job search powered by Google Custom Search to find job openings for veterans from JobPosting markup through Schema.org.

Google has never been shy about supporting veterans. We recently reported the company went to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to hand out 600 Chromebooks and teach vets how to use Google tools. They also recently helped vets with resume writing workshops at the Soldier and Family Assistance Center at West Point.
