Brothers in Arms

Ten years ago, I visited the Sicily-Rome American Cemetery near Anzio with my wife and young sons. Among the gravestones, we came across two brothers from Iowa buried side by side, Fred and Edgar Wood. As the father of three boys, I found the image of the brothers resting forever together to be especially poignant, and it inspired me to find and tell the stories of all brothers buried side by side in American World War II cemeteries.
More than 90,000 U.S. servicemembers are buried in the 14 American World War II cemeteries around the world. In 243 cases, two brothers are buried side by side. In one case, three brothers rest together.
In 2018, I set out to find the surviving family members of these brothers, to see photos and other artifacts, and to hear firsthand the memories of those left behind.
