Each day some 600 veterans of the war pass on, taking with them incredible stories of the time period 1939-1945.
The goal of our foundation is to preserve the individual experiences of those who witnessed the most devastating conflict known to man and to hopefully, pass on the lessons learned from World War II to a new generation.
We also seek, through educational outreach, to honor those who showed great examples of dedication, sacrifice and courage during one of the most horrific time periods in history.
We do hope you will support our mission and honor those who still remain, while also recognizing the cost paid by those who did not come home or were caught up in the path of World War II. Time is critical.
The foundation donates its films to American Public Television, schools and libraries so young people understand the sacrifices made by the WWII generation.
Please contact Tim Gray if your school would be interested in obtaining free DVDs for use in your classrooms and school libraries.
