OUR MISSION

D-day

Our mission is to ensure that no hero will ever be forgotten.  Millions of brave men and women sacrificed their lives to preserve & protect the greatest privilege on earth:  freedom.  As our heroes grow older, it is our duty to ensure that these stories are preserved, celebrated and passed forward to future generations.

D-day

As the number of living veterans continues to dwindle with each passing year, the chance to hear their first-hand accounts and learn from their experiences becomes increasingly precious. These individuals, who fought for freedom and sacrificed so much for their country, offer a unique perspective that cannot be found in history books or documentaries. As our heroes grow older, it is our duty to ensure that these stories are preserved, celebrated and passed forward to future generations.

We owe our World War II veterans - and all our veterans - a debt we can never fully repay. Through experiences and interactions with our heroes, in the places they fought, we strive to educate our society on their service and sacrifice.

If you would like to make a donation to assist our mission of returning World War II Veterans to battlefields around the world, please click the below link.
