Chapter 7…Rediscovering and Preserving your Family’s War Legacy…excerpt…

“Lost WWII Heroes Discovered in South Pacific…a profoundly healing legacy experience for loved ones… This chapter explores how you can revisit and preserve your proud family legacy from past wars. So much of our war legacy is hidden in the boxes of attics and basements.  We post WWII kids were taught to not ask questions or talk about it. Our parents, especially our fathers and mothers who served America during 20th Century wars, felt it was too painful to discuss. We worked hard as a post WWII society to “go home and forget about it!” Now we know that healing from the horrors and emotional pain of war requires conversation and revisiting the duty, sacrifice and service of veterans of all wars who protected the freedoms we all enjoy. We must preserve, honor and remember to help us all learn and heal from the trauma of war.”

“Passion meets technology in the search for downed aircraft in the South Pacific. The BentProp Project is a group of volunteers who search for and help repatriate missing World War II Airmen. Their searches were long and arduous until they enlisted the scientific know-how of Scripps Institution of Oceanography-UCSD and The University of Delaware. What they find is truly inspiring.”
