ATTENTION VISITORS! You have several options to begin exploring Skylighters, which has been the official web site of the 225th AAA Searchlight Battalion Veterans Association since 1996 (the web site is actually older than the association!). Skylighters is the online equivalent of a book 800 pages long containing nearly 2,000 photos! To see how many unique visitors we've had, check out our visitor counter.
WANT TO KNOW WHAT THIS SITE IS ALL ABOUT? If you're "in the dark" when it comes to what a WW II searchlight battalion did, visit our Introduction. If you want to know exactly how searchlights were used, find out why right now. To find out why this site exists nearly 60 years after the end of the war, read our Dedication & Mission Statement.
LOOKING FOR INFORMATION ON ANYONE WHO IS OR WAS A WW II VET? The best place on Skylighters to start your search is our Guestbook. It's the ideal place to ask questions. You can also leave a note on our Message Board. But if you really want the lowdown on finding out more about your father, grandfather, uncle, aunt, or friend who fought in World War II, we recommend Dad's War it's the grand-daddy of all WW II personal research sites!
