What is an eternal bridge? It can be anything to a recipe from your Great-Grandmother, a story about your Dad, or a memory of something that happened to you in Kindergarten.
Our lives are made up of memories and when those who we love are gone, the stories are lost forever.
My Dad served in the Navy in World War II. I used to listen to the stories he told about the war but strange places like Iwo Jima and Okinawa didn’t mean anything to me. After he died at a fairly young age I realized what we had lost. I could recreate his career in the Navy but the experiences he had treasured so much were gone.
My goal is to creatively capture and preserve those stories and memories while we still have them.
I am currently documenting all of the of Weber County Servicemen and women who served in World War II. You can see their stories on my Facebook page, Weber County’s Greatest Generation. There is a new story each day.
