Donate to support the first-ever project to tell the stories of every US WWII fallen

Due to the IRS misplacing some paperwork, we are temporarily putting a hold on taking donations. Email don@storiesbehindthestars.org and we will let you know as soon as it is corrected.

People who visit war memorials and cemeteries only see names and dates carved in stone.

That might have been adequate in the past, but it's not acceptable in the 21st century..

The mission of the nonprofit initiative Stories Behind the Stars is to collect the stories of all of the 421,000+ US World War II fallen in one common database. These stories are being written by hundreds of volunteers from all 50 states and many other countries.

We will have an accompanying smartphone app that anyone can use to scan the names of the fallen from any memorial or gravesite and get a link to read their stories right there. This will forever change the experience of visiting these hallowed sites.

There is no better way to honor those who paid the ultimate price for the freedoms we enjoy than support the mission to tell their stories - all 421,000+ of them.

Donate for yourself or in remembrance of someone (perhaps a WWII vet you know) who would like to see these fallen heroes remembered forever. You will received a tax receipt email confirming this is a tax deductible donation.
