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.

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.

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.

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.

First, I want to thank you and everyone who were so helpful to me on our monumental trip to Europe. I wish to extend my deepest gratitude to you, our great sponsors, and everyone who had any part in putting this trip of a lifetime together for myself and all the other parties who were so lucky to go on this great event.

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.

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.
