An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until September 12, 2021

This September marks the official 76th anniversary of the end of World War II. To pay remembrance, the Memorial will place thousands of red poppies alongside the sculpture, Le Monument Aux Morts as a visual tribute to the men and women who gave their all to preserve the freedoms we enjoy today.

One red poppy for every fatality on D-Day, 4,415 in all, will line the sides of the sculpture.

The poppies will be on display September 3-12, 2021 (during the Memorial’s regular operating hours 10AM – 5PM) as we also commemorate the 20th anniversary of 9/11 and the first responders who gave their all to protect others. Regular admission fees apply.

Your purchase of a poppy not only supports the Memorial but can be in honor or memory of an active service member, veteran, or a frontline worker who has served or is currently serving.
