VJ Day, otherwise known as Victory over Japan Day and Victory in the Pacific Day, is a day that commemorates Japan’s surrender during World War II, and thereby bringing an end to the war.
Celebration of this anniversary of the historic VJ Day gives us the opportunity to reflect on the past and renew our patriotism so that we may continue to live in freedom and seek peace so that our veterans will not have died in vain. This world-inspiring and most significant event is occasion for appropriate celebration for rejoicing, for tribute, and thanksgiving.
City staff would like to recognize Frank Riesinger for his contributions in the amount of time, energy, and assets to ensure this day is celebrated for the past seven years.
This Proclamation proclaims Saturday, August 13, 2022 as the 77th Anniversary Celebration of VJ Day in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.
