The Screaming Eagles of WWII Foundation was established in 2000 by the family of Pete M. Pulles, Dutch author of the serie booklets "Screaming Eagles of WWII".
In these booklets, information was collected of all members of the American 101st Airborne Division who served in World War II. The booklets are well-known within the "Airborne world".
The lists therein are still used as a reliable reference document by many a historian to find information like Army Serial Number, dates KIA or MIA and details such as locations or battle situations.
In 2014, a new version of this reference book was published. After P.M. Pulles passed away in 1997, his children meant to safe guard his inheritance which is copyrighted, by adding and correcting, and keeping the booklets available for the general public.
The 2014 version, for example, has between 10-15% new names due to new sources such as the internet.
