In light of the heartbreaking recent events, we'd like to share a few words from our founder, Barbara Fasola.
This is a very difficult time for our country. It is impossible to ignore the racial injustice that exists in our nation today, and we should not. As an organization committed to supporting all students across the country, we will not. At Families of World War II Veterans, we believe that each of us can make a difference. We also believe that communities and organizations have a responsibility to do our part to turn the tide and alter the status quo. Families of World War II Veterans is built on a principle that every voice should be heard and that it is within our power to pave the path forward.
We are committed to the ideals of equality, justice, empathy and compassion. Through these actions, we will continue to foster a culture of inclusion and integrity. Our path forward may feel uncertain, but acting together, we can effect real change.

"Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely.
But this is the year 1944! The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to victory!
I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle.
We will accept nothing less than full victory!
Good luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking."
