This past Sunday (June 6th) marked the 77th anniversary of the D-Day Invasion during World War II, and one Veterans Group had an idea to honor those who served during the war.
The World War II Traveling Memorial is on display this week at Casper College.
The memorial is a replica of the one in Washington D.C., and is sponsored by the Casper College Veterans Club.
It includes the Wall of Stars (aka the Wall of Freedom) which has more than 4,000 stars, with each star representing 100 deaths during the war.
There’s also two pavilions to represent both the Atlantic and Pacific stages of the war, as well as 56 pillars and stands with oak and wheat wreaths.
Each pillar represents each of the 50 US States, along with Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, the Philippines, the Virgin Islands and American Samoa.
The memorial is open to the public free of charge, 24 hours a day, until 5pm this coming Sunday (June 13th).
