Millions of Americans contributed to the fight against tyranny and fascism in World War II. While their effort and sacrifice has been honored in countless ways, there is no national memorial to their achievement. Soon there will be.
THE NATIONAL WORLD WAR II MEMORIAL follows the massive, years-long effort to formally recognize the heroism of a generation with a permanent addition to the nation's greatest ceremonial space: The Mall in Washington D.C. Meet WWII veteran Roger Durbin, whose activism spurred the creation of the monument, and examine Fredrich St. Florian's highly symbolic and reverential design. And hear from a host of those who fought in the conflict, including volunteer chairman Bob Dole, about what the memorial means to them.
