A community of organizations and individuals attend events and activities this year to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of “the Greatest Generation’s Greatest Day” – August 14, 1945 – the day World War II ended and America began laying the foundations to assure a better future for their children and their children’s children.

The Spirit of '45 event, sponsored by Daughters of World War II, held at the Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas, Texas, August 15 and 16, 2015, commemorating the 70th Anniversary of the end of World War II. The event featured a sit-down interview with Medal of Honor recipient Herschel "Woody" Williams, a hero of the Battle of Iwo Jima, in conversation with CBS DFW news anchor Doug Dunbar. This one-hour video is an excerpt from the Sunday afternoon portion of the event, concluding with the official Wreath-Laying Ceremony for Texas and the Southwest, in remembrance of those who gave their lives in the service of their country.
