Here’s a great project that a filmmaker has been working on. And I think it’s especially nice that he’s a young man, not someone from a generation closer to WWII.

A young American filmmaker is on a mission to interview every last Second World War veteran to share the stories of as many combat veterans as possible – before it is too late.
Rishi Sharma has spent the past three years documenting the lives of living Second World War veterans in the U.S., U.K. and Canada for his non-profit organization Heroes of the Second World War.
The average age of Second World War vet is now 93 years old, and the number of survivors is slowly diminishing with the passing of time.
After three years of visiting seniors’ homes to record veterans’ stories, Sharma says has filmed more than a thousand interviews.
