The Military Website Archive



The Military Website Archive project has been undertaken due to the high number of military websites being lost for a variety of reasons. The Patriot Files believes these sites are a part of history and should be preserved for future reference and study. Often times these websites are made by the men and women who experienced the subject matter first hand and they offer a unique and irreplaceable look into the inner workings of our military and the lives of the people tasked with the defense of our great nation.

There is no cost to site owners to have your site archived. If you have a military website that you would like to have archived or if you know of one that should be archived before it is lost please contact The Military Website Archive at webmaster@patriotfiles.com to arrange to have the site archived. Please pass this along to other military website webmasters and supporters.
