October 2020 – Bells of Peace Phone Application

8 months ago

Veterans Day and the National Salute are just around the corner. The United States Foundation for the Commemoration of the World Wars (formerly the World War I Centennial Commission) partnered with us in 2017 on the concept of ringing bells during the National Salute, and created the Bells of Peace phone application for the public to use during the National Salute, as well as for any ceremony where bells would be appropriate but unable to have on hand.

The new versions of the Bells of Peace application can be found by visiting their website, and we encourage everybody to use the application during planned community events on Veterans Day this year.
