In 1945 the United States celebrated its victory and the end of World War II, one of the deadliest wars in world history. Seventy years later, only 855,070 of the original 16 million American servicemen remain. It is estimated that around 500 American World War II veterans die each day. With each passing day, the nation loses witnesses to its history. This struck a chord with C.J. Davis, the Delhi Township supervisor, who said that he wanted to honor the remaining local veterans by documenting their stories.
