For several years, in both the United States and in Europe, the non-profit World War II Foundation has held Band of Brothers Actors reunions to help raise money to benefit the non-profit mission of the World War II Foundation. To date, the WWII Foundation has raised the money for and dedicated in 2012, the Richard D. Winters Leadership Monument in Normandy, France, as well as produced 21 documentary films on the personal stories of WWII, which we donate to American Public Television, schools, libraries and to veterans. In 2018, the World War II Foundation is also opening the WWII Global Education Center in Rhode Island, a location for student learning.
The Normandie-WWII International Film Festival is the only film festival in the world featuring the latest film content focused just on WWII, from feature films to shorts. It’s also the only festival in the world to hold its events in and around the D-Day beaches, marking the June 6th anniversary of the landings in northwestern France.
