The Friends of the National World War II Memorial invites you to join us as we pay tribute to the Greatest Generation at the National World War II Memorial in Washington, DC on Wednesday, May 8, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. The ceremony will mark the 74th anniversary of the Allied Forces Victory in the Atlantic and the end of WWII in Europe.
WWII veteran and Pro Football Hall of Fame Coach Marv Levy will serve as ceremony's keynote speaker and will share his poem, "I'll Remember Those Days" which he dedicated to his fellow veterans. Coach Levy served in the U.S. Army Air Forces during the war.
As part of the commemoration, Coach Levy and a dozen other World War II veterans will place wreaths at the WWII Memorial's Freedom Wall in remembrance of the more than 400,000 Americans and 60 million people killed worldwide during the deadliest military conflict in human history.
If you are a WWII veteran, or know of one, who would like to participate in the V-E Day Observance at the Memorial, please email firstname.lastname@example.org!
