Veterans and Supporters Need to Register for WWII Memorial
Friday, May 1st, 2009

2009_05_p1Nine out of 10 whom actively contributed to World War II are not recognized on the National WWII Memorial. Through the World War II Registry of Remembrances, the memory of America’s World War II men and women of the armed services and any civilian who helped on the home front can be preserved at the memorial in Washington, D.C.

Anderson-McQueen Funeral and Cremation Centers, in conjunction with Lincoln Heritage Financial Planning, is calling on the St. Petersburg community to support these brave men and women by registering your own name or the name of someone you wish to honor for their service.

Join them to learn more about the registry:

There is no charge to register your own name or the name of someone you wish to honor for their service. Volunteers at the seminar will provide pictures to share of the WW II Memorial, answer questions and more importantly, help attendees register names of loved ones who participated in the armed forces or the home front effort during WW II.

”We would like to help the community with the opportunity to record history for those that created it and honor family members for generations to come,” said John McQueen, chief operations officer for Anderson-McQueen. ”Unlike other memorials, veterans must register their names, they are not automatically listed.”

Nearly 59 years after the end of World War II, the National World War II Memorial was dedicated in Washington, D.C. in May 2004. Now a part of the National Park System, the memorial honors the 16 million who served in the armed forces of the U.S. during World War II, the more than 400,000 who died, and the millions who supported the war effort from home.

Help Keep our Soldiers Connected

This is the situation for more than 150,000 U.S. troops and their families, as these brave military men and women serve our nation overseas.

To help ease hearts and minds, Anderson-McQueen is proud to spearhead the effort to collect old cell phones from St. Petersburg residents. Ultimately, the donations make it possible for our service people to call home.

“We are proud to support U.S. troops and to assist a worthy cause like Cell Phones for Soldiers,” said John McQueen, chief operations officer for Anderson-McQueen. “We understand the value of families, and this is just a small thing we can do to help connect loved ones overseas.”

Anyone interested in supporting the cause can drop their old cell phone off at our Northeast or Tyrone locations.
