The World War II Experience is a nonprofit, educational organization recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization. It is dedicated to preserving the stories of the World War II Generation and making them available to a wide audience. This web site will focus on four areas--the experiences of soldiers, airmen, sailors, and Marines in the Pacific and the European theaters, life on the Home Front, and the experiences of Americans held as prisoners of war by the Japanese and the Germans.
These stories are detailed against a backdrop of the 1920s, 1930s, and the 1940s. Yet you will learn about more than history in reading these memoirs and biographical tales. You will see in their individual and collective stories testimonies to the strength of the human spirit.
