Our Story Writers 

We have writers from many different states and countries. These amazing heroes come from many different backgrounds but they all have one thing in common -- they want to see the stories told of those who did not make it home.

Rona Simmons





State: Georgia

"As an author of WWII era works, I am dedicated to understanding the sweep of the war’s history and uncovering little-known details. This project is a win-win situation: I learn something with each profile and help bring to life what otherwise would be just a name, rank, and serial number."

Mary K.




State: Minnesota

"I am the niece of a WWII Fallen Hero and I started writing about other WWII Fallen Heroes to tell their stories, so they are not forgotten for their ultimate sacrifice.  My primary focus has been on Minnesota soldiers because that is where I was born and raised."

John F.



State: Nevada  

"I’m working on this project because it’s important for successive generations to understand the sacrifice these American boys made to literally save the world from tyranny. If we don’t honor and remember, who will?"

Susan E.



State: Tennessee

"I have researched my own family history for over 20 years, and have a deep respect and admiration for the military and veterans. Family members have served in WWII and all conflicts. My husband is retired Navy (Submarine Service) and I value the experience I had as a Navy wife. The stories of all who served need to be preserved."

Neel Ellison




State: Utah

"I am a business owner with my husband Josh and a work at home mom of 4 children. Our family lives in Park City, Utah but we are originally from Oregon. I have been an independent family history researcher for over 12 years now. I have had a passion for U.S. war history since I was a child. WWII is my most passionate research project aside from family history. I am so grateful to be able to contribute to the memorials of such courageous soldiers. “Land of the Free because of the Brave."

"I am an avid amateur genealogist and have always been fascinated by the history of World War II, and I am grateful for the opportunity to commemorate the American heroes whose sacrifice allowed us to win the war."
