Share Your Veteran’s Story


Each member of the 449th BG(H) that returned from the war played a role in building our country into what is is today.  Are you interested in sharing the story of your vet in WWII, coming home and starting the rest of their life?  If so, this is the place to do just that!  We’re asking for anything from a couple of sentences to a maximum of 4-5 paragraphs.

Along with their service in the 449th, some other items to consider: Did they marry?  Have children?  What career did they have?  Did they carry on with the military or stay involved in aviation in some way?  Did they go to school on the GI Bill?  What role did they play in their community?  Just as documenting the role of the cooks, mechanics and medics of the 449th BG(H) was important, there is no role after the war that is too “unimportant” enough to be included. Be sure to include a picture of your veteran from their life after the war.

It’s been 75 years since the war ended.  Let’s honor their sacrifice and dedication by telling the story of how our veterans contributed to society as we know it today.  We appreciate your help in telling this important part of the story of the 449th BG(H)’s impact on the world.
