Every WWII veteran is a living library. Their first-person accounts of the war are treasures to be preserved. Through Soaring Valor, we’ve partnered with The National WWII Museum to record the individual stories of America’s Greatest Generation and share them with the world.

For those who cannot travel, we’re sponsoring a historian from the museum to conduct interviews with WWII veterans in the comfort of their own homes.

“I’m very appreciative for how this program treats our World War II veterans. Their efforts and sacrifices changed the character of our nation and I would like these men and women to be given the credit they deserve. Thank you for this opportunity and helping me understand and capture the history of what my father went through. Thank you.” -Son of Soaring Valor WWII participant.
