World War II – Keeping The Memory Alive

Photo: D-Day "Into the Jaws of Death" (by Robert F. Sargent)

In January 2018, BBC journalist Dan Walker reached out to the Embassy. Dan had bumped into an amazing man, Tony Foulds. For 75 years, diligently and every day, Tony maintained the U.S. Air Force Mi Amigo war memorial in Sheffield. Tony’s wish was for a flyover to honor the fallen.

Six weeks later, the Embassy along with the U.S. Air Force, RAF and twelve thousand people in Sheffield made that wish come true. The amazing Tony Foulds story proves that the sacrifice of those who served in World War II is still tangible today. It’s living history.


What Are We Asking For ?

  • Are there other unrecognized heroes out there? Are there other amazing stories to be told and shared?
  • 75 years on from D-Day, we’re asking you to share your stories of how the Americans who served in Britain during World War Two impacted your lives and the lives of your families and friends.
  • We want to bring these stories alive, bring these people together and introduce them to the next generation. Let’s keep the memories alive.
