PORTRAITS AND INTERVIEWS HONORING AMERICA’S VETERANS ON THE 60TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE END OF WORLD WAR II
Service in uniform was a universal experience for a generation of Americans, the millions who served during World War II and the soon to follow Korean War. Many saw the Golden Gate for their first or last time traveling to and from battles across the Pacific. In the summer of 1945, as the guns fell silent, the United Nations was formed in San Francisco and men and women began to return to their homes.
In July 2001, San Francisco photographer Tom Graves began to interview and photograph veterans across the country in order to thank and recognize them for their service and sacrifices. He was able to preserve their unique experiences and share them in the soon to be published, HEROES ALL! AMERICA’S VETERANS OF WWII AND KOREA.
This is our last opportunity to honor these veterans and to inspire their conversations with a younger generation.”
