THE VETERANS

In Their Own Words

Over the past four years, Benjamin Mack-Jackson has interviewed over 85 WWII veterans, many who participated in the D-Day invasion or the battle in Normandy that followed. These powerful testimonies are crucial to the development of the film and telling the story of this monumental event in world history.


From Infantrymen to Paratroopers, Navy and Coast Guard sailors, Airmen, and even Merchant Marines, the oral histories which we have collected, and continue to collect, will preserve the memories of these brave men and ensure that their stories live on for generations to come.


Many of the heroes who were interviewed for this project have never been interviewed before. Stories of heroism, combat, and tragedy will be unveiled in Normandy Revisited. These unique personal accounts are one of the many things that make this film an important project.


While we have collected hundreds of hours of video interviews already, we want to preserve the stories of even more D-Day veterans. If you know a D-Day or Battle of Normandy veteran in your community, please get in touch. We are actively raising funds to travel across the United States to interview members of our Greatest Generation, and any donation to our non-profit organization will make more interviews possible. With more than 350 WWII veterans passing away every day, it is imperative that we capture their stories before it is too late...
