World War II’s Fading Memories


Last Updated on October 20, 2020

There aren’t many people like Bill Coleman. There used to be, but World War II vets are vanishing. It’s why their stories are so important. Not just for their first-hand accounts, but also to ensure the lessons they learned don’t just fade into history.

Bill shares the wisdom of the greatest generation, explaining what it was like to be a part of the D-Day invasion at Normandy and what it felt like to look death in the face when he was captured by Nazi soldiers. 

Update: The Growing Bolder family is sad to learn that Bill Coleman passed away on December 15, 2012 of complications of pulmonary fibrosis. He was 87 years old.
