Pillars of Honor, worked with the memorial’s architect, Friedrich St. Florian, to secure the original model of the monument that now stands in Washington, D.C. Since its dedication in 2004, organizations such as Honor Flight have arranged for thousands of WWII veterans to visit the memorial and enjoy a day of camaraderie.

is a way of bringing the National World War II Memorial to the people it honors. Most importantly, it serves as a visual reminder of their personal sacrifice and service to our country.
