Help the project

I am constantly looking for information, documents, testimonies, books, reports, pictures to feed my researches. If you are a veteran, or a veteran relative, please do not hesitate to contact me to help me in building this website dedicated to the men whose stories never got told. 

These heroes deserve the highest recognition for what they have done for our freedom. Their sacrifice is priceless, and they will never be forgotten. 

If you think you might help, that means that you will. Then, drop an email on and let get in touch !
