The Witness to War Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) and was founded in 2001 by Atlanta-based entrepreneur Tom Beaty. The Foundation is dedicated to capturing the stories of individual combat veterans.
It is about the 'foxhole' or ‘windshield’ view of combat as seen by the soldiers, sailors, and airmen who experienced it. It is about the fear, the emotions, the training, and the previously untapped wells of personal courage that enabled ordinary individuals to survive, and in some cases thrive, under extraordinary pressures and almost unimaginable danger.
The Witness to War Foundation is dedicated to understanding, as much as possible, what it was like to 'be there.'More
