IN MEMORY OF
ALL WORLD WAR II VETERANS
This memorial is in honor of all of the World War II veterans who were involved in the fight for the freedom of America and the free world.Whether they fought in the Pacific or European theater, they faced a resolute and often brutal enemy; yet they possessed the inner strength and courage that kept them going on the beaches of Normandy, in the desserts of North Africa and on the islands of the South Pacific.The actions of those who were called to duty were probably best described by the words of Admiral Nimitz: "Uncommon valor was a common virtue."
The memorial is located at Highland Memorial Park on southbound North Richmond Street / Wisconsin Highway 47, south of its intersection with West Capitol Drive, at 3131 North Richmond Street, Appleton, Wisconsin 54911.
