A Walk Among Heroes: WWII Veterans in the National Cemetery

Join us at Valentine Hall for a special program on the Soldiers’ National Cemetery at Gettysburg and learn how the cemetery grew from its original Civil War design to honor and provide a final resting place for America’s veterans of the 20th century. Discover the stories of heroic WWII veterans from all branches of military service from Pearl Harbor to infamous battles like Iwo Jima, Battle of the Bulge and Guadalcanal.
