WWII Veterans History Project

Raised by 49 people in 38 months
The WWII Veterans History Project, a non-profit    501(c)(3) educational organization, is the brainchild of Benjamin Mack-Jackson, a 14-year-old student, who strives to preserve the memories of the men and women who saved our country during the Second World War. He collects, preserves, and shares the personal accounts of World War Two veterans so future generations may hear directly from them, and better understand the realities of the war and the history of America. 

Benjamin interviews these brave men and women who fought on the front lines against fearsome and merciless foes. He believes that the younger generation of America needs to open their eyes and truly realize what these men and women did for us, and by sharing their stories he hopes to do just that.

To accomplish his mission, he needs funds to travel and meet these heroes. Time is of the essence because more than 500 of these brave men and women pass each day. 

Some of the veterans he has met have either lost, or never received their medals, division books, or other war mementos. He hopes to raise enough funds to help get them what is rightfully theirs. 

He also hopes to raise enough money to purchase better video equipment to improve the quality of his interviews.

Many of the veterans he has met find it hard to connect with fellow WWII veterans, so he hopes to have a reunion for the veterans he has interviewed.

All donations to the WWII Veterans History Project are now tax-deductible due to our recently acheived non-profit, 501(c)(3) status.

After donating, please ensure that you provide your mailing address in an email or a message so we can send you a letter for your tax-deductible donation.
