Footnote.com today announced the addition of thousands of US
Air Force photos to their digital World War II collection. This
release coincides with the anniversary of the Pearl Harbor bombing,
and contains tens of thousands of original World War II photos
and documents from the National Archives. Among this collection
are missing air crew reports, documents from allied military
conferences and photos of Japanese air targets.
"They say that a picture is worth a thousand words," says Russell
Wilding, CEO of Footnote.com. "What's exciting about this collection
of photos is they also include captions that tell stories of
the people and events in the photos."
Footnote.com has added these new pictures and documents as part
of a much larger, ongoing effort to preserve the heroic memories
and stories of the brave men and women that served in World
War II and other wars.
"We are providing priceless content from our archives and libraries
that is only a part of a much larger picture," continued Wilding.
"While this is an extensive collection of history, we understand
that many people out there have valuable pieces of history in
their personal record collections within their own homes. We
encourage everyone to upload their own photos, letters and documents
contained in their old shoeboxes."
Footnote.com is leading the movement to preserve the documents
and stories about World War II and invites everyone to join
in this effort. Uploading photos and documents and creating
memorial pages is completely free on Footnote.com.
