WWII Beyond The Call

We are losing our WWII Veterans at an alarming rate! Preserving their stories has never been more urgent! Help us make sure the Greatest Generation is remembered!

ALL donations help us to travel and reach the veterans and edit their stories into documentaries.

My name is Tracie Hunter. I am a documentary filmmaker and daughter of a US Army Officer.

I was always told of my grandfather and his incredible story of struggle and survival in the Battle of the Bulge during WWII. But what started out as a search to learn about my own history turned into so much more. . . .

My grandfather, Lt. Joseph Hunter, was a Purple Heart recipient and POW. He passed away before I could meet him so I had the idea that maybe if I could find someone who knew him in the war or went through the same experiences, I could better understand what he went through and keep his memory alive. 

This journey led me to find some of the most incredible veterans and survivors that shared the same POW camp as my grandfather. After hearing their stories, I knew I had to do my part to help keep every veteran's story alive. 

Thus, Beyond The Call was created, and it is my hope that together we can ensure that every veteran has the opportunity to share their story and be remembered for generations to come.


Beyond The Call is run together by Tracie Hunter and Elizabeth Suter. We have traveled across the United States and even to Europe to capture these stories before they are gone. We love our WWII Veterans and want them to feel heard and know that what they did mattered and still matters!


We travel to reach our veterans and spend the day interviewing and filming with them. Each veteran’s story is turned into a short documentary. These films are being used in schools and museums across the nation and serve as a keepsake for our veterans and their families!

 We are a registered 501c3 Non-Profit Organization.
