I remember the ad for this back a few years ago featuring Tom Hanks at Walmart and the malls, but then I just forgot about it until now.
Thanks to all that made this possible, but mostly to the Veterans that it finally immortalizes!
“My only question is, why did it take 60 years? We’ve already lost half of the veterans that this monument is honoring,” said Lou Gentile, a World War II veteran from New Britain, Conn., who runs the veteran services office for the city. He said he hopes to someday make the pilgrimage down to Washington, D.C., to see the new monument.
“We’ve become an endangered species,” he added.
