Storytelling at The War Memorial.


Across This Land (Memorial Day 2019)

Every Memorial Day, The War Memorial honors and remembers those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. By reading the names of those who could not be with us, we commemorate as a community the lives of these brave men and women who have gone before us.


An Evening of Red, White, and Blue (2019)

During An Evening of Red, White, and Blue, The War Memorial recognizes local organizations, partners, and individuals who are working to support Detroit area veterans. Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Gregory J. Vadnais received the Spirit of Service Award, which recognizes an individual who adamantly supports and uplifts the military community, which can be seen in his many years of service.

Featuring the hosts of Inspired Heroes, Marie Osborne and Ted Everingham.

The War Memorial was proud to host the 2019 Our Community Salutes enlistment Ceremony.

Our Community Salutes (OCS) is a national, non-profit organization helping communities recognize, honor and support high school seniors who plan to enlist in the U.S. Armed Services after graduation.
