Children of Fallen Patriots Day is May 13th

WWII Victory in Europe Day

WWII Victory in Europe Day

From the NFRW Armed Services Committee

May 8th is our official Victory in Europe Day or V-E Day. The document signed by Germany for unconditional surrender dictated that at 2301 Central Europe Time, 8 May 1945, all hostilities would end. Because this time meant that it was 9 May in Russia and many of the countries bordering it, that is their official day for celebrating.
