These men and women changed the course of world history and we want to capture their stories.
El Paso, TX (PRWEB) November 16, 2012
In November 2011 there were 1,711,000 American veterans of World War II still living. It has been estimated that an average of 850 have passed away every day since then. The war ended 67 years ago, so the remaining vets were very young people when they joined the US Armed Forces and the war had a profound impact on their young lives. SharedSorrows.com wants to capture as many of their stories as possible to be preserved for all time.
“These are stories of courage and conviction—yet some are also stories of tremendous pain and personal sacrifice. These men and women changed the course of world history and we want to capture their stories,” said BJ Stewart of SharedSorrows.com.
Stewart, who is a disabled veteran, encourages the families of World War II veterans, as well as the veterans of all US wars to capture and record their stories on a free EternaPage™ at SharedSorrows.com. If the families prefer, professional writers are available for a reasonable fee to interview the veteran (if he/she is still living) as well as family members and close friends. The writers will then create a beautiful “word portrait” which will be preserved for all time.
SharedSorrows.com was launched by a disabled veteran, Benjamin Stewart, along with his family and several close friends in April, 2012.
