My name is Scott Davis, and for the past three years I have been collecting oral histories from the last remaining WWII and Korean War veterans to ensure that their sacrifices are not forgotten by future generations. I am currently a student at Gonzaga University and would love your help and support to continue this project!
Time is ticking and the window to collect these stories is fading fast!
But, we must remember "Greatest Generation" is not limited to those who fought in the Second World War; there was another war fought just five years later on the Korean Peninsula. The men and women who fought in the Korean War (1950-1953) were born just years after the WWII vets, growing up through the same conditions and fighting an equally dangerous enemy, Communism. We cannot forget the WWII veterans younger brothers and sisters, who gave so much in Korea.
To ensure the memory of the WWII and Korean War veterans are not forgotten, I have created a project titled Faces of Valor to collect these stories while we still have the opportunity.
I plan on teaching history and hope to share these interviews in the classroom to ensure that young people understand the sacrifices made on their behalf. History should be the study of people, not the memorization of facts and dates!
All money donated will go directly towards gas, equipment, and DVD copies for the veteran's family. Anything helps!
