Mission Statement

Our purpose is to recognize and herald the sacrifice of America’s more than two million servicemen and

women and their families who continue to bear the brunt of our country's military commitments. It is

important to honor our veterans’ service and we will do this by documenting their experiences and memories

through photographs and recorded interviews. While the public may hear the statistics, powerful images and

personal stories will help crystalize and bring into focus the true magnitude of their sacrifice. Our goals is to

create the largest living multimedia database of veteran stories and make this resource accessible to the

general public, veterans, and the people who care for them to ensure our veterans’ service and sacrifice is

not forgotten by generations to come.
