National World War II Memorial
On May 29, 2004, George W. Bush led the official dedication ceremony for the National World War II Memorial in Washington, DC.
World War II veteran Roger Durbin first suggested the memorial in 1987. He suggested the memorial to Representative Marcy Kaptur, who then introduced the World War II Memorial Act to the House of Representatives that December. For several years she introduced similar legislation, but it wasn’t voted on.
