The men and women of the World War II generation endured the Great Depression, preserved freedom and democracy, and rebuilt the postwar world. Their accomplishments and example of service will forever inspire and sustain our nation.

KEEP THE SPIRIT OF ?45 ALIVE is a non-profit program that is gathering personal recollections of August 14, 1945, the day WWII ended and the healing of the world began.

The joy of servicemen overseas, the relief of anxious families at home, and the loneliness of those whose loved ones would never return? these memories collectively capture the culminating moment of a defining event in our history.

To collect these memories, we are mobilizing younger generations to help their elders submit their memories at this website. Our goal is to not only preserve history, but to encourage our youth to personally connect with the men and women who lived these stories.

There will be 1940s live swing big band, swing dancing, military/ home front living history display, Victory Parade, children activities and much more!!

FUN for the whole family!
