Abstract : As required by Public Law 102-414, the World War II 50th Anniversary Commemorative Coins Act, GAO audited the revenues and expenditures of the American Battle Monuments Commission's World War II memorial fund for the fiscal years ended September 30,1995, and 1996. Public Law 103-32, the World War II Memorial Authorization Act (Memorial Act), authorized the Commission to construct a memorial on federal land in the District of Columbia to honor members of the Armed Forces who served in World War II and to commemorate United States participation in that conflict. For the fiscal year ended September 30, 1995, GAO determined that the fund had revenues of $0.3 million and expenditures of $0.5 million. For the fiscal year ended September 30, 1996, GAO determined that the fund had revenues of $5.4 million and expenditures of $1.0 million. Table 1 shows total revenues and expenditures for the fund from its inception in fiscal year 1993 through fiscal year 1996.
