Victory Day

August 13th, 2012 by Marshall Slocum Inn

Victory Day is a state holiday here in Rhode Island and falls on the second Monday of every August.  This day, also referred to as VJ Day, celebrates the Allie’s victory over Japan in WWII.  Rhode Island is the only state that considers this a legal holiday and many offices will be closed.  Victory Day is a day to remember the sacrifices made by veterans during WWII and many remember the day with commemorative ceremonies.
