Building the WWII Memorial

Marcy is the author of legislation that created the National World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. A true believer that the best ideas come from her constituents, Marcy was spurred to action by an idea from a rural mail carrier who approached her at a local fish fry. His question prompted her to introduce legislation to build a World War II Memorial.

The Bill

That bill was the start of a 14-year legislative mission that culminated in the dedication of the memorial on May 29, 2004. The memorial has become one of the most popular sites in our nation’s capital, the ultimate destination for dozens of “Honor Flights,” and a fitting tribute to the sacrifice and valor of America’s “greatest generation.”

Marcy is a champion for Northern Ohio and the Great Lakes Heartland in Congress.
