History behind MyWarHistory.com

Many years ago, when I did a 30 minute video of my grandfather’s World War 2 memories for a college library, I thought it was good that I was able to do it but I did not think a whole lot of it at the time. When my grandfather got sick, I decided I needed to preserve his story for future family generations so I sat him down and shot hours of footage of him going through pictures and telling his story of everything he could remember. I later conducted another interview of him about his service in the Korean War naval service which is a crazy story as he was in the Army during World War 2. I completed all of this a few years ago and I was luckily able to share all my completed work with him before he passed away. Now I have his story from his own words recorded forever along with my other grandfather. A few years passed as I focused on my career, but now I am once again focused on my passion. I came up with an idea and I have worked on it for the past 13 months. Naturally I used my skills in software development and my passion for history to come up with this idea. My little project has made a very large impact especially to the World War 2 and Korean War veterans I have spoken to as they have never written down their story because they did not think that their personal story was that important, however once I complete their biography veterans are blown away and very grateful to have someone take the time to honor their words and heroism for all the world to see. MyWarHistory.com allows the ordinary person to sign up and post their family members (absolutely free). I encourage everyone to do what I did and honor your friends and family members before it is too late. Even recent veterans are encouraged as their stories are most intact and waiting 60 years can be tough on recalling memories. MyWarHistory.com has no investors or support and it is available to you for free because we think it is important. Would you be interested in helping us get this type of project to a wider audience so that more service hero stories can be remember forever? E-mail MyWarHistory.com to everyone you know and tell them to honor all veterans.
