WORLD WAR II MEMORIAL - PACIFIC
The Second World War stretched across the globe – consuming all of Europe, Africa and the far reaches of the Pacific. Following the attack on Pearl Harbor, American men and women responded dutifully to protect the United States and our way of life.
School teachers became bomber pilots, farmers became paratroopers, and the bank manager found himself in the sands of northern Africa facing Rommel’s Panzer division.
There are countless stories that exemplify those to whom this WWII monument memorializes. Join us for just one - that of Benjamin Lewis Salomon, a dentist, who at 29 years old found himself in one of the most brutal battles of the Pacific, 8 days after D-Day, on the tiny island of Saipan.
