"To bring together the records of the past and to house them in buildings where they will be preserved for the use of men and women in the future, a Nation must believe in three things.
It must believe in the past.
It must believe in the future.
It must, above all, believe in the capacity of its own people so to learn from the past that they can gain in judgment in creating their own future."
-Franklin D. Roosevelt, June 30, 1941
Today, just as when it was dedicated by President Theodore Roosevelt on June 3, 1903, Veterans Memorial Hall stands to honor the past, learn from the past, and believe in the future for all Veterans and their supportive community.
