"Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime." I agree wholeheartedly that it is the dedication of a lifetime that defines true patriotism.  You all have given not only your time, dedication and effort, but—most importantly—your very being to the protection and advancement of this great country. You work tirelessly for the rights of the veterans who serve our country, while conducting the nation’s finest civic training to instill young future leaders with the knowledge, understanding and wisdom to govern this country.

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.
