Spirit of '45 Day honors the legacy of service of America's "Greatest Generation" with music, entertainment, and you will get to meet WWII Veterans and share their stories from that time in our history.
Ladies and gentlemen, once again we are so proud to honor our World War II veterans and the Greatest Generation during our annual Spirit of '45 remembrance event, August 11! This event is precious to the museum, given our WWII veterans are becoming so few. Come hear the stories of an era long gone, but not forgotten! Through Spirit of '45 we hope to inspire and forever imprint upon future generations the courage, self-sacrifice, unity and service the WWII generation is best known for.
To all members and supporters of 82nd Airborne!
You are all amazing and have been a welcomed and revered feature at every event we are honored to see you at our Museum, for decades!
You are famous here in San Diego and your mission deserves the respect of every resident here and throughout our USA!
This is the 10th year of Spirit of '45 and you have been a heart-warming team presenting colors and helping our youth groups follow your guidance to posting every year. This is an emotional event for everyone who attends.
This year will be a reunion of over 200 WWII Veterans, according to Honor Flight and others.
Everyone is thrilled you're returning again this August 11th, same location, same duty, with our appreciation!
