World War II 75th Anniversary events/dates
2016 - 2020 
Members of the Spirit of '45 coalition are forming an Alliance to  help raise public awareness about activities that are being organized by various groups to commemorate the 75th anniversary of important events that took place during World War II (1941 - 1945). 
The Spirit of '45 coalition organized observances of the 75th anniversary of President Roosevelt's "Four Freedoms" speech in January 2016, the 75th anniversary of the formation of the Tuskegee Airmen in February 2016, the Pearl Harbor 75th Anniversary in December 2016, the 75th anniversary of the Doolitte Raid in April 2017, and is organizing an international commemoration of the WWII 75th anniversary of the end of WWII that will take place around the world on the weekend of August 14 - 16, 2020. 
We encourage the public to participate in commemorative events in their local communities, such as having wreath laying ceremonies at memorials and other appropriate venues in parallel with those being held at the National World War II Memorial in Washington, DC. 
Friends of the WWII Memorial plan multiple wreath laying ceremonies to
mark 75th anniversaries of some of the important battles of WWII
