About Us

Who we are

We are the daughters of the men and women who served in World War II.

Our Mission: Our mission is to honor all veterans of World War II and preserve their memories so future generations can know and understand the great sacrifices these men and women made to protect the freedom all Americans enjoy today.

We bring together Daughters, Veterans, family members and those who support our efforts through programming and special events designed to raise awareness of World War II and its veterans who live in our communities.

We collect and share the stories of the Daughters and Veterans so others may come to respect and honor our World War II veterans as we do. We work with other World War II-related organizations to coordinate efforts to support and assist the Veterans. We create a community in which Daughters can share their special bond with each other.

While our primary members are Daughters of World War II and their families, we also welcome anyone who had a relative that served in the war, and those who wish to honor Veterans in general by joining our group. Daughters of World War II is a 501(C)3 non-profit orgnization.
