Outro

Thank you for having joined us for part 2 of our WW1 Centennial News favorites segments of 2017.

This is the beginning of a crucial year - as we move from the decision to enter the war, and the near manic ramp up to do so, to the true sacrifice and loss of our nation’s precious sons - as we enter the fight -  and as that fighting ceases in November.

 

WW1 Centennial News is brought to you by the US World War 1 Centennial Commission, and our founding sponsor the Pritzker Military Museum and Library.

Special thanks to the show’s line producer Katherine Akey, researcher Eric Marr, plus our many wonderful guests, contributors and a rolling team of interns. I’m you host, Theo Mayer. Thank you for listening.

 

The US World War One Centennial Commission was created by Congress to honor, commemorate and educate about WW1.

Our programs are to--

inspire a national conversation and awareness about WW1

We are bringing the lessons of the 100 years ago into today's classrooms;

We are helping to restore WW1 memorials in communities of all sizes across our country;

and of course we are building America’s National WW1 Memorial in Washington DC.

 

Thank you to the commission’s founding sponsor the Pritzker Military Museum and Library for their support.
