Returning Lost Relics to Families

Mission

We provide research time and services to help identify lost WWII items and reunites the sacred relic with the veteran himself or his family at no cost to them. We also educate families, school children, and the public about our WWII veteran's sacrifice and service. In addition to lost relics, we assist grave adopters around the world to preserve the deeply personal legacies of American World War II heroes buried on foreign soil. We do this for future generations to come.
