Monday is Victory Day and a state holiday in Rhode Island.
Formerly known as Victory Over Japan Day, the second Monday in August celebrates the end of Pacific front of World War II.
Rhode Island is the only state that celebrates it as a state holiday, though other communities hold ceremonies in remembrance.
Some have called for the elimination of the holiday.
