I've been with the Colorado Avalance since 1990 and have experienced many amazing moments at both McNichols Arena and Pepsi Center. I always refer to my top five. Tuesday night moved into my top five. You and your beautiful wife exemplify the true meaning of generosity and devotion. Thank you for sharing The Greatest Generations Foundation and for your passion. You inspired everyone.

I salute The Greatest Generations Foundation for a job well done. We veterans are honored by the name of the Foundation which pays tribute to all WWII veterans. This organization and what it represents instills pride in the 17 million veterans who served and especially to the less than two million yet surviving.

It has been my distinct pleasure to accompany two student/veterans groups back to the fields of battle in Normandy and the Netherlands. In my thirty-five years of experience in higher education, I do not believe I have seen a more exciting educational venture. These students are receiving an education being with these veterans. They have a lot of questions about the war; however, so much of what they are learning are life lessons, that is, lessons in character, perseverance, and integrity. The students come away from this experience with a clearer understanding about the concepts of duty, honor, selflessness, friendship, and love of country. I have heard so many of the veterans say that being around these "kids" have really either helped restore or renew their faith in the younger generation of our country. Thank you for giving all of us the opportunity to be a part of this worthwhile venture, and please know that we stand ready to assist your organization in any way possible.

The mission of The Greatest Generations Foundation is one that I greatly respect. We, as citizens of the United States, owe these men our deepest gratitude. Our freedom came at a great price; thank you, TGGF, for taking the intiative to return a portion of what we owe to these great heroes of our country. Thank you to the donors who mak journeys like this possible. Their funds are not wasted!

I am writing to express my support for The Greatest Generations Foundation. I had the incredible privilege of traveling to Normandy with ten WWII veterans for the 65th anniversary of the D-Day invasion. As that generation of heroes reaches their final years, it is vital that their legacy be passed on to my generation who are so far removed from the kind of horror and desperation that these soldiers experienced during the war. I know of no better way for this transfer of legacy to occur than through the kind of trips that The Greatest Generations Foundation actively organizes and sponsors. I implore anyone who has influence to insure the continuation of these unique journeys to please do so, especially over the course of these next few months and years before the greatest generation is gone forever.

I had the opportunity to participate in the 65th anniversary of D-Day trip to Normandy, France with The Greatest Generations Foundation. It was such an amazing experience and an honor to be able to interace and get to know the ten WWII veterans who we accompanied on the trip. It is important that we not forget these veterans who gave so much not only for the country of France but for America as well.

During the summer of 2009, I was given the opportunity to accompany 10 WWII Veterans back to Europe for the 65th anniversary of D-Day. I was one of 20 college students who took part in this trip. Our goal was simple: to be with these veterans and share in their emotions as they revisited places they fought. We students were able to stand and talk with them as they recounted the horros they experienced. No longer do I view veterans simply as men who served in a far away country. I now view them with utmost respect. It was through The Greatest Generations Foundation that this trip was accomplished. TGGF helped bridge the gap beween those WWII veterans and the students who accompanied them. The trip was a success: not only did we share in their experiences; but more importantly, a bond was created between two very different and distant generations.

Wonderful organization that honors American vets. Our family has supported this organization for the past four years. It is a great place for students to be engaged directly with our military veterans. Sincerely, John and Mary Hensley. Dallas, TX

Reading the stories of our World War II veterans find closure.

I could have devoted more time with my father and hearing his own story from World War II. He passed away in 2002.
