Meet Our Volunteers
The National World War II Memorial celebrates a generation of Americans who emerged from the Depression and united to fight and win the most devastating war in world history.
Volunteers at the National World War II Memorial (“Yellow Hatters”) help enhance visitors’ experience in understanding the Memorial and how it relates to a very special time in American history.
The Volunteers are part of the National Park Service’s Volunteers-In-Parks (VIP) program. The Volunteers spend time at the Memorial assisting visitors, answering questions, and presenting interpretive talks about the Memorial.
Meet two of our volunteers below.
