Hundreds of men and women who served in the Armed Forces or as civilians supporting the World War II war effort are interred at Green-Wood. In February, 2021, we launched our World War II Project to preserve the stories of these people. Now, we will gather with an invitation to family, friends, and neighbors to share the stories of these remarkable individuals who fought the good fight. Bring medals, photographs, honorable discharges, reminiscences, and more, to share with all. There will be an opportunity for attendees to share stories of their loved ones.

Price: Free. Registration required.
