In honor of Memorial Day, this month's exhibit pays tribute to World War II veterans.
According to the National D-Day Memorial Foundation, an estimated 300,000 American World War II veterans are still alive. This is about 1.8% out of the 16 million who originally served. This exhibit honors all American veterans who served during World War II; celebrating today's survivors and honoring the memories of those who have died. It contains resources on musicians, singers and compositions that helped boost the morale of soldiers during World War II. Much of this same music also brought comfort and confidence to soldiers' families back home.
