Let Freedom Ring: Honoring Victory in Europe Day

VET_Blog_DTOP_BelowTitle_300x250

This video is offered in memory of Victory in Europe Day, May 8, 1945 — sixty nine years ago today. We wish to remember all who fought and came home and became known as the greatest generation. We salute all those who gave their lives to keep freedom alive for so many millions.

WWII was a cataclysmic event. The world stood poised on the brink of tyranny and millions of men from the United States, Britain, France, the Soviet Union and others went against a fanatical foe and brought him to his knees, but oh, the cost! So many millions died as the result of Hitler’s war against freedom and humanity.

We honor all those who fought and those who died in defense of humankind’s most precious value, freedom. Those who remain with us grow fewer every day and will not remain with us much longer. Let us remember them today with our prayers, and our thanks.
