House passes bill to honor first ‘World War II City’

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The push to get Wilmington honored as “an American World War II City” is one step closer to reality.

Congressman David Rouzer’s bill has passed the House.

Local Historian Wilbur Jones has been working with the congressman to recognize Wilmington and other cities for their contributions during World War II.

If the bill becomes law, each year, a new city will receive the designation.

The bill now heads to the Senate.
