"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 ignited his passion for honoring these extraordinary Americans for their service and sacrifice underarms. We accept these exceptional Americans for their service and sacrifice, and we pay tribute to the legacy of freedom and peace that they have given our great Nation.

Since its creation in 2004, TGGF has provided thousands of American and Commonwealth veterans with the opportunity to memorialize their stories and find closure by returning them 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, Poland, Tarawa Island, Australia, Italy, Luxembourg, Philippines, Okinawa, Singapore, Japan, Belgium, Thailand, New Zealand and now, programs to Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.

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 can join our mission of showing your appreciation for the brave women and men who have served in our country’s armed forces.  Always remember, "EVERY DAY IS MEMORIAL DAY."
