Pay a Lasting Tribute to WWII Vets This Weekend in Visalia | Community Spirit
If you are a World War II Veteran-- or know one-- here's a chance to help them get the recognition they deserve for FREE.
On Saturday, June 23rd from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., volunteers will be scanning Head Shot Pictures of World War II Veterans-- alive or deceased-- at the Visalia Mall. You can stop by anytime. The process takes only about five minutes, and you get to keep the original picture.
The head shots will be placed on a 8' x 80' banner to be displayed at the capital building in Sacramento, other locations and marched in a parade in Washington, D.C. in August.
Hewlett Packard has offered to produce a banner for any state that can gather 1,945 pictures of WWII Vets by the end of June. This is part of the national "Spirit of 45" project.
In case you can't make it to Visalia, you can click here for information on how to submit your picture to the project, from your own computer.
Again, This is no cost to the veteran or the family.
Please help in keeping the legacy of the "Greatest Generation" alive.
