Day 123, May 29

World War II indeed changed the world.  If the Allies had not triumphed, the world as we know it would not have existed.  Despite its importance, though, forty-six years passed before a museum was built to honor those who served and tell the story of the American experience in the war – why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today.   

Dedicated in 2000 as The National D-Day Museum and now designated by Congress as America’s National World War II Museum, it celebrates the American Spirit, the teamwork, optimism, courage and sacrifice of the men and women who fought on the battlefront and the Home Front.
