The United States honors the American veterans of every major war of the 20th century with a national memorial in Washington, D.C., except the veterans of of World War I.
The centennial of the war from 2017 to 2019 provides 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 as those later wars, and the nation’s sacrifice was great—204,000 Americans returned home wounded and 116,516 did not come home at all.
As we commemorate the centennial of the U.S. involvement in the Great War, now is the time to honor the heroism and sacrifice of the Americans who served with the creation of a National World War I Memorial in Washington.
