"When you go HOME, tell them of us and say; For their TOMORROW, we gave our TODAY."
The Greatest Generations Foundation (TGGF) was founded by Australian native, Timothy Davis, whose own strong family ties to both World Wars serving alongside the Americans ignited his passion for honoring these extraordinary veterans for their service and sacrifice underarms.
Since its establishment in 2004, TGGF has provided thousands of American and Commonwealth World War II veterans with the opportunity to memorialize their stories and find closure by sponsoring their return to the hallowed grounds where they served and laid to rest those they lost in battle - all at no cost to the veterans.
Those historic locations include Pearl Harbor, Guadalcanal, Normandy, New Guinea, Iwo Jima, Tunisia, England, Algeria, Bougainville, Mariana Islands, Germany, Peleliu Island, Netherlands, Wake Island, Poland, Tarawa Island, Australia, Italy, Luxembourg, Philippines, Okinawa, Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong, Belgium, Thailand, New Zealand and now, programs helping veterans return to Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos.
As these brave men and women continue to escort our country into the future, it is essential that we do not let them, their stories or their cause be forgotten, and TGGF does this as well as any unit involved in the pursuit of our wartime history. Because they understand the connectivity between the generation that fought for our freedoms and those who enjoy those freedoms today, and all it takes to benefit enormously from TGGF programs in an open, questing mind. And it means a lot to the veterans when they can share those insights with people who care about what they went through decades before when the world was in jeopardy from tyrants and the forces they commanded. They are happy to share their stories on programs like these and more than a little gratified that young men and women, mostly born long after the shooting ceased, are still interested in their perspectives and their experiences.
To this day and into the years ahead, with steadfast determination, TGGF is tirelessly devoted to becoming the most distinctive veteran association in the world. We hope you can join our mission of showing your appreciation for generations of brave women and men who have served in our country’s armed forces.
