Celebration After Long Fought Battle

September 2nd, 1945 would signify the end of WWII. The Japanese would surrender and the date would go down in history as VJ Day.

And so on V-J Day (wiki) we take renewed faith and pride in our way of life. We have had our day of rejoicing over the victory. We have had our day of prayer and devotion. Now let us set aside V-J Day as one of renewed consecration to the principles that have made us the strongest nation on earth and which, in this war, we have striven to preserve. 

~ Harry S Truman (wiki) (1884-1972) (proclaiming V-J Day, 2 September 1945*)
