did nothing less than help save the world,
Yet there is no national memorial to honor their sacrifice."

in studs terkel`s words - the good war

THE NATIONAL WW II MEMORIAL: That generation who brought us through the Great Depression then on the very heels of one calamity, the bloodiest war in our nation`s history, truly they were, as Brokaw calls them, our greatest generation. The National World War II Memorial, the first national memorial dedicated to all who served during World War II, will honor all military veterans of the war as well as the citizens on the home front, the nation at large, and the high moral purpose and idealism that motivated the nation's call to arms. It was a war of such scope and high importance, as Studs Terkel called it -- The Good War.

The World War II Memorial will be located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. at the Rainbow Pool site at the east end of the Reflecting Pool. This is between the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument, and is a prominent location that is commensurate with the historical importance and lasting significance of World War II to America and the world.

President Clinton dedicated the memorial site on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, 1995, and the design was created by architect Friedrich St.Florian. The actual groundbreaking is slated for Veterans Day in 2000, and the national fund-raising campaign is now under way. Already, notables such as the Oscar award-winning Steven Spielberg as well as Tom Hanks have signed on to raise public awareness. The World War II Memorial is to be funded almost entirely by private contributions, and the capital campaign goal for donations is set at $100 million. Co-chairing the fund-raising campaign will be former U.S. Senator Bob Dole, and Frederick W. Smith, the president and CEO of FDX Corp.

LEST WE FORGET: "we remember with humble gratitude those brave Americans who, at this very hour, patrol far-off deserts and distant mountains. They have something to tell us today, just as the fallen heroes who lie in Arlington whisper through the ages. We honor them not only because they are guardians of our liberty, but because they embody the spirit of service; a willingness to find meaning in something greater than themselves. And yet, at this moment -- a moment that will define a generation -- it is precisely this spirit that must inhabit us all." [President Barack Obama]

Winston Churchill said of our debt to the Jews, "We owe to the Jews a system of ethics which, even if it were entirely separated from
the supernatural, would be the most precious possession of mankind, worth, in fact, the fruit of all other wisdom and learning together."
