I went to Pearl Harbor with TGGF. Never been back since the war. The professional manner in which the staff had prepared the entire agenda was very special. Experiences we will never forget: returning after 66 years is mind boggling. Being allowed to meet the young military kids and interact was very rewarding. We were honored like real heroes, a very humbling experience. Thanks so much for inviting me to come along.

We might see if we can get organization to contribute to the foundation, such as our church, VFW, American Legion, etc.

I went with the foundation to Pearl Harbor last month, and I never thought I'd again be able to set foot on the ship where the surrender was signed. The program is awesome. I would like to see all of the program maintained. I have no doubt that with the help, the attention, the caring and the work of the staff, the work will continue. God Bless you all.

I just returned from Pearl Harbor with TGGF to commemorate the 66th anniversary of the end of World War II. The TGGF staff make a great team, everything was thought of and well planend out, I've never received so much gratitude for my service. The program should be continued to keep telling everyone what we did.

Dear TGGF,

Message: First and foremost, thank you for allowing our students an opportunity to hear from heroes of the Greatest Generation. I heard our students enjoyed a rich and inspiring learning experience at GHS yesterday.

Thank you again for arranging the Veterans visit today -- our Cadets enjoyed meeting the Veterans of Greatest Generation and hearing their "war stories".

TGGF allowed me and ten other WWII veterans travel back to Iwo Jima, to the former battle site where I fought in the war. The experience was truly remarkable and gave me valuable healing and closure. Thank you, TGGF, for the work that you do for all the men and women who have served our country.

No other non-profit organization has ever made a difference in the lives of WWII veterans like TGGF. I have seen both veterans and student participants' lives changed as a result of the trip back to former battle sites. Thank you, TGGF, for your passion in never forgetting these valient heroes or the sacrifices they made.

The journey to Normandy with TGGF was a truly life-changing, unforgettable experience. I now realize a fraction of the true impact that these veterans made not only in Europe, but also in the world. Their sacrifices helped secure the freedoms that I enjoy today and I couldn't be more thankful. Thank you, TGGF, for making this trip a possibility.
