I may not always believe in and trust our government, but I will ALWAYS believe and trust the American Soldier.  You have taken a sacred oath to protect the many FREEDOMS that so many of us take for granted.  Please understand that I am grateful for your sacrifice(s) and your service on my behalf.  It is an honor to call you "My Countrymen".

World War II Four Freedoms Memorial

Presidents Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms - jointly Initiated with Winston Churchill in the historic Atlantic Charter – are immortalized in marble, creating one of White chapel’s most impressive memorials. It was dedicated on V-J Day, 1948 when 115 veterans were returned from overseas and laid to rest in then-largest peacetime mass burial in U.S. history. There are a total of 322 WWII veterans who are laid to rest in the special WWII Four Freedoms Memorial area. Forty one veterans were returned from overseas and laid to rest in 1947. A total of one hundred seventy were laid to rest in 1948. One hundred three were laid to rest in 1950. One veteran was laid to rest in 1952 and one in 1956. We at White Chapel are honored that there are countless other WWII veterans who have chosen White Chapel as their final resting place. The WWII Four Freedoms Memorial serves as an Homage to all of Michigan WWII veterans.
