The non-profit World War II Foundation honors the legacy of the veterans and survivors of one of history’s most important time periods by producing educational documentary films that air on television networks around the world. To date, the World War II Foundation has donated 22 films to American Public Television, as well as making them available for free to schools, libraries and the military. The goal is to preserve these important stories for current and future generations. Among the foundation’s other initiatives is the building of an overseas monument recognizing American leadership on D-Day and the recent dedication of the World War II Foundation Global Education Center in Rhode Island.
