Routes to finding veterans
Sun Dec 10, 2017 16:38

You are fighting an uphill battle, but I'm sure you've already figured that out.

Based on interviews we've done over the course of three decades, most men in combat are pretty much unaware of what was going on 30meters away. It was even worse at Tarawa. Plus, based on experience, probably about one. 0.5% of the survivors are still alive. Also based on experience, much of what you will get from secondary sources is hearsay, some of it quite fanciful.

If you will drop me an e-mail, maybe I can suggest some organizations to help.
