Celebrate America's Spirit!
In 2010, both houses of Congress voted unanimously for a national "Spirit of '45 Day" to honor the legacy of the men and women of the WWII generation.
Spirit of '45 Day is now being observed each year in hundreds of communities and during Major League Baseball games on the second Sunday in August.
