We have done it together

The centennial of WWI has provided the opportunity to give long-overdue recognition to America’s 4.7 million sons and daughters who served in the Great War. Those women and men served with the same valor and courage as the veterans of later wars, and the nation’s sacrifice was great—204,000 Americans returned home wounded and 116,516 did not come home at all.

We are proud and excited that at last we are honoring the heroism and sacrifice of the Americans who served with the creation of the National World War I Memorial in Washington.
