Stories of World War II Veterans’ What If Moments

Our Fathers’ Footsteps (Stories of World War II Veterans’ What If Moments) is now available.

It is now time to begin another set of stories.  We all have our own stories that include the words “What If.” For most of us the consequences aren’t a matter of life and death. In the case of our fathers, mothers, grandfathers and grandmothers, aunts and uncles, their “What If” moments could have been a matter of life and death. Using personal letters, diaries and historical information I want to more stories about those who were fortunate to survive.

I am looking for more stories, of both men and women served and risked their lives not only on that day but throughout the war. What did they do before the war? What about after. Did they go on to great things, or were they just good men and women who raised a good family. What about those who died? What might they or their children have contributed to the world if they had lived. 

Do you have a trunk in the attic or a drawer in the basement that will help tell the stories about your family?

I would love to hear who these people were and what their stories are.  If you would like to share your their story, you can contact me at I would love to hear from you.
