Denver, CO (September 15, 2020) – Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum (Wings) is pleased to announce the opening of two new exhibitions – WWII and You, and the newly cast three figure “Lest We Forget: The Mission” reproduction.
This month, the United States commemorated the 75th Anniversary of the official end of World War II, and while “the war to end all wars” had finally come to an end, it left lasting effects on us today. Wings new exhibit WWII and You includes historically-significant artifacts, and takes a fascinating look into how the technological developments of World War II are still affecting our lives 75 years later.
Wings second exhibit is the remarkable sculpture by World War II aviator Major Fredric Arnold, USAAC (Ret.) – “Lest We Forget: WWII”. It honors, preserves and promotes the heritage of the American combat pilots for future generations.
“The power of these two exhibitions illuminates what is known as the Greatest Generation, stated Wings Over the Rockies President and CEO, John Barry, “and supports the need for us to continue to honor and thank World War II veterans along with their families for the great sacrifices they made for us.”
