National World War II Memorial Commemorative Coin Act

H.R. 4681

U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, who originally introduced the legislation that led to the building of the National World War II Memorial, has introduced legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives, H.R. 4681, to have the U.S. Treasury mint coins in commemoration of the National World War II Memorial in Washington, DC. The proceeds from the sale of the coins will go to the Friends of the National World War II Memorial (Friends) for the maintenance and repair of the National World War II Memorial, and educational and commemorative programs.

H.R. 4681 currently has 20 cosponsors, but it needs at least 290 House cosponsors before it can be considered for a vote.

Dear Representative:

I am contacting you to ask that you sign on as a cosponsor of H.R. 4681, the National World War II Memorial Commemorative Coin Act. This important bill, which was introduced by U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, directs the U.S. Treasury to mint coins in commemoration of the National World War II Memorial in Washington, DC. The proceeds from the sale of the coins will go to the non-profit Friends of the National World War II Memorial for the maintenance and repair of the National World War II Memorial, and educational and commemorative programs.

The National World War II Memorial is the only national memorial that honors the service of all World War II veterans. It is an important and special monument for our veterans and the nation. For World War II veterans and their families, the National WWII Memorial is a sacred place — one that provides a fitting and moving tribute to the service and sacrifice of our fighting men and women. As the number of World War II veterans declines, it is vital that our nation appropriately recognizes their sacrifice and service.

One of the best ways to do this is to ensure that the National World War II Memorial is properly and fully repaired and maintained. In addition, it is also vital to ensure that the educational programming surrounding events at the Memorial remain robust and substantial. H.R. 4681will accomplish these goals. Most important, the bill will not cost a dime of taxpayer money.

Once again, I urge you to sign on as a cosponsor of H.R. 4681. Should you want to cosponsor this important bill, please contact Margaret McInnis in Rep. Kaptur’s office at margaret.mcinnis@mail.house.gov.

Thank you.

Please note, currently this is a House of Representatives bill only. For now, please only contact your Representative in the House. Thank you!
