Preserving the Stories was formed in 2008 to preserve the legacies of America's aging WWII Veterans. What began with just a 12-year-old with a pad of paper has become a nonprofit that has interviewed over 150 WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam veterans on three continents, even attending the 75th anniversary of D-Day. It has become our mission to give a platform to every veteran willing to share their personal history before it is lost to time.

Submit a Veteran

As these heroes slowly fade away, it is our mission to ensure that their legacies are never forgotten. While we may not be able to reach every veteran, we can aim to preserve their story below.

“Lest We Forget”

We need your help. As our veterans begin to fade, we are in a race against time to preserve their legacies. This is a huge task that will take a monumental and collective effort. Your donations will help us send our oral history teams out into the world to interview our aging WWII, Korea, and Vietnam Veterans. It's a big task, but together, we can preserve as many of these incredible stories as we can.

If you decide to donate, 100% of your charitable contribution will go to this cause. We do not take a dime from these funds and the money we receive is used solely for travel, lodging, equipment, books, technology costs, and a small gift for the Veteran (this usually comes in the form of a patch or pin, lunch or a cold beer). 

We cannot thank you enough for your support.
