December 9, 2019 Emily Carley "Witness to War Foundation"


Emily is an Atlanta native and a 2006 graduate of The University of Tennessee with a BSBA degree in Marketing.

Her grandfather was a WWII & Korean War veteran and is featured on the site (Tank Commander Andy Carpenter). Emily originally assisted with interviewing and website content selection prior to moving into the Director position. Today, she is responsible for the day-to-day running of the Foundation, which includes partnership & media contacts and website management, along with conducting veteran interviews. She has been working with the foundation since 2006.

Emily lives in Atlanta with her husband and two children.

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.'
