Rebuilding a Home for a WWII Veteran
Day 45: Memorial Day. Memorial Day, originally known as decoration day, is a day to honor all the military service members who have gone before us. This weekend, we're inviting your family to think about how you can commemorate, honor, and remember those who have passed while serving our country. Watch this video about Charles Adderley, a World War II veteran, as he remembers his experience serving.

Military personnel dedicate their lives to serving our country. This Memorial Day, take some time to be intentional about honoring those who have dedicated their lives to our country.
Let's Talk
After watching the video about Charles Adderley, use the questions below to kick-start a great conversation with your family:

  • What stood out to you about Charles' story?

  • Why is it important to honor and commemorate service members?

  • In the video, Charles asks "what is the definition of hero?" What is your definition of a hero?

  • Bonus! This Memorial Day, honor fallen heroes by sharing their stories, calling a loved one, or commemorating them through art.

Do Something
We Remember
Remembering fallen heroes. While we all stay home, we are connected by sharing the stories of the military service members we have lost. The National Veterans Art Museum is honoring Memorial Day by collecting memorials of service members who have passed to honor their legacies and connect the families of military heroes.

This weekend, remember the heroes in your life by contributing a memorial to the We Remember collection or exploring the archive of stories. Follow this link to contribute or view the archive.
