Wargaming Sponsors WWII Foundation and "Band of Brothers" Cast Reunion
Wargaming.net is proud to take part in an educational mission through the sponsorship of the 2015 actors reunion from Band of Brothers – HBO's influential WWII historical drama. The purpose of the reunion is to benefit the World War II Foundation – a non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve the stories of WW2 heroes by making documentary films, amongst other projects.
As title sponsor, Wargaming will be with the stars every step of the way as they tour three of Normandy’s most important historical sites and museums in recognition of the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII.
From June 5 - 7, the reunion will visit the Overlord Omaha Beach Museum, the Utah Beach Museum and the Richard D. Winters Leadership Monument in Sainte-Marie-du-Mont, Normandy, France. All events are open to the public. Information and tickets are available through the World War II Foundation's web site.
Social outreach and the ongoing preservation of military history is of the utmost importance to Wargaming. The company’s partnership with the World War II Foundation is not the first. Other global projects include the sponsoring of USS Iowa, the recovery of the world’s last remaining Dornier Do-17, and the Wargaming Education Centre at the Tank Museum at Bovington, UK. As Wargaming’s titles focus on aspects of both World Wars, it is important that the company help preserve exhibits of historical significance throughout the world.
War History Online, one of the world’s leading providers of online military information pertaining to the 20th century, will also join Wargaming in support of the Normandy events this June.
