VE DAY: WWII Memorial


Several hundred people gathered at the WWII Memorial today to celebrate the 68th Anniversary of VE (Victory in Europe) Day at the WWII Memorial.  In attendance were the board of Directors of Friends of the WWII Memorial, reprsentatives Karen Curcurullo and Robin Owen of the National Park Service as well as an Honor Flight from Tucson Arizona.  There was  a moving re-enlistment ceremony and Holocaust survivors and WWII veterans placed wreaths in front of the Wall of Stars.   The rains held off and in fact the weather was quite beautiful.  The Memorial is a far better place with water than without. Great credit goes to Terry and the National Park Service for getting the fountains running.

The images are available for downloading (personal and attendee use only) in the Image Library.
