Today is Memorial Day
Today is Memorial Day, a day The National WWII Museum takes time to remember the 400,000 men and women who have laid down their lives for our freedom.
Take a moment today to visit mymemorialday.org to see just a few of their stories. Learn about Howard Madison Walker, Germaine Laville, Johnnie David Hutchins and Darrel “Happy” Neil – just a few of our WWII heroes whose stories are part of the Museum’s exhibits and collections.
Look at their photos, see the things they touched and read the letters they wrote home describing the war in their own words.
With your help we can continue our efforts to ensure the voices of these courageous men and women will always be heard. With your contribution of $10 or more today we can digitize artifacts, images and oral histories so they are available for generations to come. Our goal is to raise $40,000 by the end of the day to purchase the software and other tools vital to this effort.
Only a few hours remain for us to meet this challenge. Give your gift today in honor of the brothers, sisters, best friends, husbands and sweethearts who did not return home to their loved ones.
Visit mymemorialday.org today to learn the true purpose of Memorial Day and be sure to share it with your friends and family via Facebook.
Remember Them Today.
