From the shores of Normandy to the black volcanic sands of Iwo Jima...The Best Defense Foundation ensures that any WWII veteran who wants a measure of closure or the recognition he so richly deserves has an opportunity to return to his battlefield. At these unique battleground reunions our veterans have received numerous awards, such as the French Legion of Honor, and have been honored at dozens of events and parades.
Donnie has been taking WWII veterans back to their battlefields for more than thirteen years. What began as a simple conversation during a chance meeting with a WWII veteran has turned into a life’s mission.
As time wanes on for these great men, we have planned 4 programs:
IWO JIMA - MARCH 2019
NORMANDY D-DAY 75th COMMEMORATION - JUNE 2019
HOLLAND - SEPTEMBER 2019
PEARL HARBOR - DECEMBER 2019
KOREA - Date TBD
VIETNAM - Date TBD
