During WW II, more than 16 million American men and women served in the US Armed Forces. These men and women veterans are our families. They are parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, or even siblings.
Your veteran has a story, maybe one that’s never been told. We can help. Let’s start at the beginning: Imagine that your veteran’s story is a puzzle yet to be taken from the box. Many individual pieces have to come together from different places before the story comes to life.
An international team researches and assemble your veteran’s unique puzzle. The process begins with Myra and her team of researchers at the National Archives in St. Louis and College Park, Maryland (NARA). The Archives' vast collection of World War II military personnel records allows us to access and lay the foundation for a detailed picture of your soldier’s activity during service, or afterward, in the case of a hero killed in action. Our European team members Joey, Florent, Bob, Alessio, Loic, Ben, and Nils use archives, battlefield documents, local testimonies, historians, and other European sources to retrace your veteran’s path. On the Pacific side, Joey is our expert. We also have a military artist, a merchandise designer, and individuals dedicated to special projects to aid in our search.
Our combined efforts and access to the most extensive WWII resources allow us to create the most complete picture of your veteran’s experience. Our mission is to help you learn more about your family.
We excel in presenting your veteran’s information in the format most meaningful to you—in writing, maps, video-documentary, or even tours.
