Pershing Park West
Los Angeles, CA - The campaign to revitalize World War One memorials has truly become a national, coast-to-coast effort. Only two weeks after the U.S. World War One Centennial Commission unveiled the five final designs for the renewed Pershing Park in downtown Washington, city leaders in Los Angeles have announced a design competition for Pershing Square, the oldest park in the city. Work on the redesigned park in downtown LA is expected to be completed by 2020, and will be a major factor in the ongoing revitalization of downtown Los Angeles.

Design Oversight Committee Sees Final Five
Check out the the five final design concepts for the National WW1 Memorial at Pershing Park in Washington, DC on the Stage II Finalists webpage. Stage II rolled out last week, as the finalists met with the WWICC Design Oversight Committee and our technical advisers to begin to refine the designs. The process will result in a final design submission to the full Commission in early 2016.

Commission Special Assistant GEN Barry McCaffrey is named 'Doughboy of the Year'. Read more.
