World War II Air Force Stories
Armistice Day (November 11th) was originally created to honor the veterans
of World War I. But in 1954 its name was changed to Veterans Day and its
purpose was extended to all veterans. Today’s Veterans Day cyber tour
looks at five World War II memoirs. The Internet has an extensive
collection of personal war stories. Some are autobiographical, and others
are retold by sons and daughters. Perhaps these sites will motivate you to
collect and preserve your own family stories.
