The U.S. World War One Centennial Commission is building
the National World War I Memorial in Washington, D.C.

It is time to honor the heroism and sacrifice of the 4.7 million American sons and daughters who served in WWI. Their sacrifice in this war was great. In just a short 18 months the Nation raised and trained a massive fighting force. Over 2 million deployed "Over There".  204,000 Americans returned home wounded and 116,516 did not come home at all. 
Their service, valor and courage equalled that of veterans from later wars but our WWI veterans had never been remembered in our Nation's capital UNTIL NOW.

The National WWI Memorial in Washington DC
With your help, we are building it.
