“They came of age during the Great Depression and the Second World War and went on to build modern America……”  The Greatest Generation” – Tom Brokaw
This year marks the 70th anniversary of Pearl Harbor.  Veterans Day will be on 11/11/11 this year.  That happens every 100 years, but every year Veterans Day is special.  The Kiwanis Club of Williamsburg just completed a three month project interviewing eight WWII veterans and capturing their memories.  Not because of Veterans Day but because it needed to be done. 
Their stories can be viewed below.
