"When you go HOME, tell them of us and say; For their TOMORROW, we gave our TODAY."

Throughout our history, America has been protected by patriots who cherished liberty and made great sacrifices to advance the cause of freedom. The brave members of the United States Armed Forces have answered the call to serve our Nation, ready to give all for their country.

In times of war and of peace, our men and women in uniform stepped forward to defend their fellow citizens and the country they love. They shouldered great responsibility and lived up to the highest standards of duty, honor and country.

Since its creation, The Greatest GENERATIONS Foundation (TGGF) has provided thousands of American and Commonwealth veterans with the opportunity to memorialize their stories and find closure by returning them to their hallowed grounds where they served and laid to rest they lost in battle - ALL AT NO COST TO THE VETERANS.

TGGF was founded in 2004 by AUSTRALIAN native, Timothy Davis, whose own strong family ties to both World Wars ignited his passion to honor these extraordinary Americans for their service and sacrifice under arms, and we pay tribute to the legacy of freedom and peace that they have given our great Nation.

To this day and into the years ahead, with unflinching determination, TGGF is tirelessly devoted to becoming the most distinguished veteran association in the world. We hope that you are able to join us in showing appreciation for the brave women and men who have served in our country’s armed forces. Always remember, "EVERY DAY IS MEMORIAL DAY."
