An incredible first-hand collection of eyewitness testimonies from WWII veterans, soldiers, sailors and airmen who beat back the bile in their throats to do their duties and complete their dangerous missions. It’s a stark reminder of the greatest generation that we came from. Showing their daily life—by example— of patriotism, sacrifice, and bravery. The veterans of World War II stood up and saved the weak from the strong, even when they were scared, hungry and tired of fighting.
These are the missing stories, the ones we should have asked and didn’t, the ones they should have told us about, but chose not to. Our answers to the questions are in here—hundreds of their stories and personal photographs that’ll leave you understanding more about our fathers, grandfathers, uncles and the nice old man next door with the American flag in his yard.
While serving a purpose higher than themselves, the men and women within this collection of stories built America into the superpower it is today. We need to remember that. We need to honor that. We need to honor them.
