GALLERY: 'Spirit of '45' program in Cedar Rapids

Event held to instill spirit of 'Greatest Generation' in future generations

Gazette photographer Adam Wesley provides this gallery from the first Spirit of '45 Day program Sunday, Aug. 11, 2013 at Mercy Medical Center in Cedar Rapids.

Speakers at the event reflected on the sacrifices made by Americans between 1941 and 1945, providing insight into the hearts and minds of the men, women and children who worked with courage, shared sacrifice and commitment to move the country forward after the devastation of World War II.

Event organizers hope it will instill in future generations the spirit that defined those who served our country.
