The World War II Memorial Committee is currently offering the World War II Registry of Remembrances program. Any U.S. citizen who helped win the war, be they veterans or civilians who did their part on the home front, are eligible. The collected names will be posted on their website as well as in an electronic format at the site of the memorial. Registry is free but there is also an option for a certificate with your donation. We encourage all who are eligible to register their names, or the names of loved ones, so that the individual names of the men and women who made the “greatest generation” will be known to the younger generations. Follow the above link to learn more about this wonderful program and to register.
The National World War II Memorial will be dedicated on Saturday, May 29, 2004 in Washington, D.C. Many of you were present at our 1999 Veterans Day Parade when Governor Ridge presented Senator Dole, National Chairman, with a check for $2,000,000 from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for this much anticipated memorial. (See photo in our 1999 Photo Gallery) The official website offer wonderful photos, overviews and educational materials. Use the above link to visit the site.
