Silent Wings Museum celebrating Spirit of '45 Day on Sunday

The Silent Wings Museum in Lubbock, TX will celebrate the Spirit of ‘45 Day on Sunday, August 11, 2013 with a free one-day event that provides an opportunity for America to say "Thank you!" to those who served in uniform and those who supported them on the ‘home front' during the WWII era.

In 2010, Congress voted unanimously in favor of observing support of a national Spirit of ‘45 Day on the second Sunday of every August, coinciding with the anniversary of August 11, 1945, the historic day when President Harry S. Truman announced that World War II was over.

There will be an opportunity to visit with local veteran organizations, view the documentary Honor Flight, children's educational activities, a military equipment display and an afternoon ceremony followed by light refreshments. For more information about the Silent Wings Museum's Spirit of ‘45 Day contact the museum at 806.775.3049.
