I had the pleasure, and privilege, to attend the V-E Day Commemoration at the National World War II Memorial on May 8th, 2015. Sorry to say, I didn’t see any members of the 92nd there. However, I did get a chance to see this during the National Anthem. And I managed to get a few seconds on camera. You’ll have to watch to the end, but I think it’s worth it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCV0sE5s37A
With Veteran’s Day upon us, we stop to Honor ALL the Veterans who have served in our armed forces. We would like to take a moment to offer up a special thank you to our WWII Vets. According to some estimates, we lose about 1,000 WWII Vets every day!
And while they may no longer be with us in body, they are with us in spirit. We will carry the memories of their service and sacrifice with us and we will take it upon ourselves to share those memories with future generations.
Spencer C. Moore served as an officer with the 92nd Infantry Division during their time in Italy. During the unit’s 2004 reunion, he took us on a walking tour of their display of unit memorabilia. Please click on the picture to watch the video.
