Lend-Lease Memorial

During the Second World War, Fairbanks was an important stopover point on the route for lend-lease aircraft headed to the Soviet Union, for their battle together with the Allies.

Text on the memorial:

The structure of world peace cannot be the
work of one man, or one party, or one
nation... it must be a peace which rests on
the cooperative effort of the whole world.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, March 1, 1945
Address to Congress on the Yalta Conference
