World War II ended on August 14, 1945 marking the culminating moment of the greatest national effort in our history. We are free to be thankful and remember what it was like to be American on that date when pride was at its highest point. This is the 69th Anniversary of that event. The Spirit of '45 Day honors the legacy of service of America's "Greatest Generation" and is mobilizing youth to help men and women who remember the day WWII to tell us their memories so they will become part of the nation's memory.
We celebrate this event at the Veterans Museum on Sunday, August 10th, 2014, THE SPIRIT OF '45 DAY Americans in thousands of locations across the USA observe this historic moment by paying tribute to - and carry-on - the legacy of World War II Americans. It started here in San Diego!
Talk one-on-one with WWII Veterans, Hometown Heroes, and Rosie Riveters, and representatives of Allies to learn what it was like to be a proud American on the day when they learned the War ended and their dreams and plans could happen.
