Their Stories

Learn about their experiences

On this part of the website you will find a collection of stories from the men that were part of the 99th Infantry Division.

Every day we are losing more and more WW2 veterans and therefor recording their memories becomes more important, their stories give a way to look into the life of a soldier during World War Two.

We are still looking for stories so if you have any material that you would like to share with us please use the contact button of the main menu.
We can create a webpage for your loved ones, a place to store those memories and share them with other veterans, their family and our future generation young and old.

Help us leave a legacy for future generations, a reminder of what life had been like during the war and to honor those who gave everything for us to live in freedom.
