At the end of the war, the nation was the proud home to nearly 16 million veterans. Today, that number stands at just over a million. By 2036, it is estimated there will be no living veterans of World War II left to recount their experiences.
Stories of Service is urging young people across America to join us in capturing the stories of the rapidly fading World War II generation!
