Rhode Island is the only state in the U.S. that continues to observe Victory Day, which marks the end of World War II. The holiday, established in 1946 by President Harry Truman, is commonly known as "Victory over Japan Day" or "VJ Day".
Some critics say Victory Day should no longer be recognized as a holiday, because the U.S. is now allied with Japan.
