FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THE INDEPENDENCE FUND AND THE GREATEST GENERATIONS FOUNDATION JOIN FORCES TO COMMEMORATE THE 75TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE END OF WORLD WAR II WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP
WHEN: WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2
WHERE: USS NORTH CAROLINA, 1 BATTLESHIP RD NE, WILMINGTON, NC
WHAT: The Independence Fund and The Greatest GENERATIONS Foundation will join President Donald J. Trump and twenty-five Veterans from WWII, the Vietnam War, Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom aboard the USS North Carolina as President Trump declares Wilmington an American World War II Heritage Center.
Among the heroes present will include:
“The Independence Fund was born to celebrate the incredible sacrifices made by our combat Veterans,” said The Independence Fund CEO Sarah Verardo.” I can think of no finer endeavor than uniting our greatest generation of heroes with our latest generation of heroes. Decades may separate them, but the bond of brotherhood and commitment to our flag unites them all.”
“Every day, World War II memories—its sights and sounds, its terrors and triumphs—disappear,” said The Greatest GENERATIONS Foundation President and CEO Timothy Davis. “ Yielding to the inalterable aging process, the men and women who fought and won the great conflict are now in their late 90s and 100s.”
It is difficult for anyone of this generation to fully understand what this anniversary means to the Veterans who experienced it firsthand 75 years ago. As these brave men and women continue to escort our country into the future, we must not let them, their stories or their cause be forgotten upon their passing.
MORE INFO: Interview availability for Veterans, The Independence Fund CEO Sarah Verardo and The Greatest GENERATIONS Foundation President and CEO Timothy Davis available before and after the official event by RSVP only. We respectfully ask that everyone practice safe social distancing. Full Veteran bios available upon request.
