World War II was the greatest military victory for the United States. It was
an effort in which every citizen contributed and had a stake in
the outcome, along the front lines and the home front. It was a
war neither the United States nor our Allies could afford to lose.
Today, America is rapidly saying goodbye to our "Greatest Generation"
of citizens. The State of New Jersey has taken the initiative to
honor and remember them by creating a memorial in Trenton across
from the State House at Veterans Park.
Fittingly, the theme for New Jersey's World War II Memorial is
"Victory." The memorial honors and pays tribute to
the courage and the many sacrifices of the World War II Generation
as it celebrates the greatest victory our country has ever known.
