Field of Honor: A Salute to the Greatest Generation
Thousands of World War II veterans from Wisconsin are honored at Miller Park in Milwaukee during the "Field of Honor: A Salute to the Greatest Generation" day-long celebration. Milwaukee Public Television covers this spectacular event both inside and outside the stadium. The program features veterans talking about the impact of the War on their lives, along with clips from a documentary featuring the honor flights to the WWII memorial in Washington D.C. that many of these veterans have experienced. WW II re-enactors, live music, the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight Art Show, flyovers and fireworks are also featured. The model of the National WW II Memorial Model is also highlighted, before it goes into the Smithsonian.
