“This is the day we have been waiting for since Pearl Harbor. This is the day when Fascism finally dies, as we always knew it would.”
– President Harry S. Truman on 14 August 1945
Following the announcement of the end of WWII in the Pacific, Americans began their celebrations.  On 2 September, the Japanese formally surrendered aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay.  President Truman declared this to be V-J Day.

To our WWII Veteran members and their families, and to all those who have gone before– Marines’ Memorial honors you and your sacrifices.

Celebrating Purple Heart Day
 On August 7, 1782, General George Washington made this announcement:
The General ever desirous to cherish a virtuous ambition in his soldiers, as well as to foster and encourage every species of Military Merit, directs that whenever any singularly meritorious action is performed, the author of it shall be permitted to wear . . . over his left breast, the figure of a heart in purple cloth. . . . Not only instances of unusual gallantry but also of extraordinary fidelity and essential service . . . shall be awarded.
The award, then called the Badge of Military Merit, was only given to three Revolutionary War soldiers by Washington himself. After World War I, the award was revivied and redesigned to the Purple Heart Medal we know today. Since then, 1.8 million Purple Hearts have been distributed to service members of all branches.

The award remains well-known for its striking design and because it is unique in the US Military– any service member who sheds blood or sustains a qualifying injury while defending our Country will receive a Purple Heart no matter his or her position, rank or standing.

Today, and every day, Marines’ Memorial remembers their sacrifices and offers heartfelt thanks to all of our Purple Heart Recipients.

AUGUST 2020     MMA EVENT CALENDAR

This MonthWe hope you are staying safe and well. At a time of year when many of us would normally be traveling, attending festivals or sporting events, gathering with friends and family for garden parties or long-awaited reunions, we are all instead adapting as best we can to this new way of life.

Here at your Club, we are doing everything possible to make the Club & Hotel a safe and welcoming place. We are also developing more ways to help you connect with your Club community. Watch this space and your email for details as these plans unfold.

We are so proud of what we have here; proud of our dedicated staff members who keep it running smoothly through good times and bad; and especially proud of you, our members, whose financial support continues to sustain our mission. THANK YOU!

Video Series: Leading from the Front

Conversations with Leaders on Diverse and Timely Topics

LFTF-MCM.jpgFrom inside the Marines’ Memorial Club, our new series’ first installment presents Emmy Award-winning correspondent and MMA Board Member Mike Cerre in conversation with Oakland A’s adviser Sandy Alderson on the survival of baseball. The second installment is a discussion of how the military leads from the front on the issue of racial equality, with retired Marine Sergeant Major Carlton Kent and Marine and FBI veteran M.K. Palmore. Don’t miss these conversations, and please share them with others!

Leading from the Front is made possible through the generosity of our donors, who support this and other educational programs of the Marines’ Memorial.
