Gen. North talked about the significance of the simple words “The War Memorial” on the Natatorium’s entrance, and the assumption after “the War to End All Wars” that there would never be a need for another such monument to fallen military men and women. An assumption that, sadly, we know to have been baseless.
Alyssa’s posting also includes her excellent video of highlights from the general’s speech and the rest of the service. Well worth checking out. Mahalo, Alyssa.
