"Greetings with love to those who return
A triumph with tears to those who sleep"


Newport News' Victory Arch provides a continuing memorial to American servicemen and women. Grateful Peninsula citizens built a temporary Arch, dedicated April 13, 1919, for the victorious troops marching back from "Over There." By 1960 maintenance of the wood and plaster Arch was impractical. A permanent arch of stone was rededicated May 30, 1962.
