It's no secret that our numbers are dwindling. Depending on the report, somewhere between 1,000 and 1,500 WW II vets pass on each day. Dad thought this page might be helpful to people who have lost track of each other over the years. The list is by no means complete, and if you have any information you can share, please send an email to vtrbwhite@comcast.net.
