New WWI Memorial in DC


Our nation honors American veterans of every major conflict of the 20th century with a national memorial in Washington, D.C. — except the veterans of WWI. The centennial of WWI provides the opportunity to give long-overdue recognition to the 4.7 million Americans who served then — men and women who served with the same valor and courage as the veterans of later wars.

The design is almost complete and well over half the funds have been raised. With you help we will built this memorial in our nation's capital to honor the veterans of WWI for all generations to come.
