The Lane Victory Maritime Center is thrilled to announce its highly anticipated “Spirit of ’45” event, a momentous occasion set to take place on Sunday, August 13, 2023. This one-of-a-kind gathering will celebrate the Spirit of shared sacrifice, service, and national unity of the “ordinary heroes” of America’s Greatest Generation on the 78th anniversary of their Greatest Day, the end of World War II.
The Spirit of ’45 movement holds immense significance as it symbolizes the unity, resilience, and determination that defined the American spirit during one of the most pivotal periods in history. It is a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by the brave men and women who served in the Armed Forces and United States Merchant Marine, ensuring the victory and freedom we cherish today.
The Spirit of ’45 event is not only a celebration of the past but also a chance to foster community spirit and honor those who selflessly served their country. We invite you to join us and become a part of this historic gathering that will transport attendees back in time to the 1940’s.
With live entertainment featuring performing classic hits of the era, attendees will be able to sway to the melodic tunes that uplifted the nation during challenging times. Witnessing the carefully restored vintage wartime vehicles and their owners proudly displaying these automotive treasures, will evoke nostalgia and admiration for the craftsmanship of yesteryears.
