Help me to expand this project

I can't do it without your help!

The D-Day, Normandy and Beyond website is a big project and one that will never end evolving. Since 2000 when I started this website, I did not know at all what I was getting into. Now I know a bit better. A lot of research goes into every story. I try to collect genuine WW2 patches and badges for every story on my website. The dream is to one day open a tiny museum where the featured veterans will be honored. If you want to help this ongoing project by donating small documents or items (such as patches, insignias or badges) regarding WWII, then please contact me by filling in the contact form here below and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Everything you donate will always remain in my possesion and will never be sold.
