We Remember | Explore Stories
Memorial Day is observed by honoring and remembering military personnel and veterans who have passed. The National Veterans Art Museum recognizes that individuals from veterans to civilians are touched by the experiences of our military service members. Even if you do not have a military service member in your family, you might have a teacher, a neighbor, or a friend that has been touched by those stories. WE REMEMBER gives an opportunity for EVERYONE to share the memories of those who impacted our lives with the ultimate sacrifice.
