The U.S. World War One Centennial Commission
Proudly Announces that
the National World War I Memorial in Washington, D.C.
Is Now Open to the Public
At last we are honoring 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 and now at last our WWI veterans are being remembered in our Nation's capital.
This animation represents the final concept as approved by the U.S.Commission of Fine Arts on September 19, 2019 and by the National Capital Planning Commission on October 3rd, signaling the completion of the Memorial design phase. Click here for a downloadable PDF of the detail design.
Now in its 5th year, tens of thousands have remembered those who served in WWI. It is a fitting kick off for Veterans Day remembrances anywhere.
No bell? No Problem! We even have an App for that.
