National Spirit of ’45 Day

Spirit of ’45 Day, passed unanimously by the U.S. Congress in 2010, honors America’s “Greatest Generation” and is observed on the second weekend in August, coinciding with the anniversary of August 14, 1945, the day on which President Truman declared the end of WWII. 

“Join us as we celebrate the Spirit of shared sacrifice, service, and national unity of the “ordinary heroes” of America’s Greatest Generation on the 76th anniversary of their Greatest Day.”
