Shain was the spokesperson for Keep the Spirit of 45, a national grassroots campaign to establish an annual day of remembrance to honor the Greatest Generation. Prior to her death, she had invited the veterans to join her for a performance of South Pacific.
The group was made up of veterans from all the military service branches who served in the Pacific and European theatres, including survivors of the battle of the Bulge, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa and the Bataan Death March.
