Veterans’ Legacies is presently focusing on our WWII veterans as we commemorate the war's 75th anniversary. We are losing nearly 500 of these veterans a day and are quickly running out of time. We must act now or lose their stories forever.
This is our "Mighty Endeavor,” as we strive to make Oregon the first state in the nation to collect information on every single one of its more than 152,000 WWII veterans.
We plan to do this by activating our communities, schools, and service organizations to directly communicate with and record the history and stories of these veterans. By doing this, we not only preserve the legacies of our veterans but we empower and educate the students who do so. We are preparing our future by learning from the past.
Although we are currently focusing on our Oregon WWII veterans, we encourage and accept stories, biographies and media from all veterans from all conflicts all around the world.
Your tax-deductible donation will help fund our effort by providing research, website development, in school education efforts and by providing the tools we need to connect with our communities.
This is your opportunity to help save the legacies of those who saved the world.
Thank you so much for your support of Veterans' Legacies and our "Mighty Endeavor.”
