The bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941: The tragedy that prompted US entrance into World War II, calling a whole generation into service, both abroad and at home.
Marking 80 years since that dark day, D.C. comes to the Dole Institute with this original concept model of the WWII Memorial presented in partnership with the Friends of the National World War II Memorial.
Bob Dole was one of 16 million Americans who served in uniform during World War II. Senator Dole brought his commitment to veterans to his 35 years of service in the US Congress and beyond. In retirement, Senator Dole served as national chairman of the fundraising campaign to build the National World War II Memorial, which opened on the National Mall in 2004, and has greeted veterans weekly on-site for 15 years.
The Dole Institute is committed to universal accessibility in all programs and resources. We are in the process of making all of our web projects fully accessible. An accessible version of the material represented on this site will be made available upon request. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request the material be made available in an accessible format, or for general assistance.
