Veterans Day Celebration
Veterans Day congers up the memory of Japan’s surrender in WWII and the reaction of Americans to the end of the war. Tomorrow in New York, ‘the nurse’ in Alfred Eisenstaedt’s most famous photograph of WWII is the grand marshal of the NYC Veterans Day Parade. She will be dressed in her ‘whites’ as she says she was in Times Square that memorable day. Since Eisenstaedt did not know the sailor and the nurse in his photograph, will we ever know the true identities. Indeed, we certainly can collect this iconic photograph to keep this day alive from generations to generations.
