With the advent of Ken Burns’ new WWII documentary, The War, we are certain to see more and more projects to capture the memories of WWII veterans. When you consider that they are dying at the rate of approximately 1,000 per day, you realize how important it is that we talk to them now. Tomorrow may be too late…

One project is a collaborative effort of the PBS stations in Ohio. They have created a website – www.ohiowarstories.org – which features videos of interviews with veterans as well as civilians who assisted the war effort from the homefront. There are some truly powerful stories.

If you are a WWII vet or know one, record the stories now. Future generations should know what they did.
