George Michael Thomas is the founder of this website. He was born a day before his uncle, Michael A. Lazaro, was killed on Peleliu in 1944. A few years ago, he started to research his uncle's combat experience. The project provided many answers for his family, but it also raised many questions. He started this website with his family in the hope that a veteran who knew Michael Lazaro would see the website and contact him. That hasn't happened yet, but many veterans have shared their own experiences on Peleliu.
