Volunteers provide content to share WWII fallen stories on YouTube channel with 36 million views

Updated: Jun 13, 2023

The non profit initiative Stories Behind the Stars has contributed the first set of volunteer-written-stories, about WWII fallen airmen, to the popular YouTube channel TJ3 History.

TJ3 History has more than 120,000 subscribers and more than 250 videos over the past three years, with more than 36 million views.

The mission of TJ3 History is to create videos that center on World War II combat history.

TJ3 History's "What History Never Told You About Pearl Harbor" video included stories written by Stories Behind the Stars volunteers from last year's successful efforts to tell the stories of each of the 2,341 American servicemen who perished during the Pearl Harbor Attack. In less than a week it has had more than 100 thousand views.

These are the heroes in the video that our volunteers wrote about:
