The Foundation Gets a New Name
The U.S. World War One Centennial Commission’s charter to Honor, Educate, and Commemorate the US Centennial of WWI is essentially complete. The centennial of the signing of the Versailles Peace Treaty was the last historical event of the commemoration. In accordance with the law that created it, the US World War One Centennial Commission is standing down except for building the National World War I Memorial in Washington, D.C.
To support the WWI “Community of Interest”, continued conversation, and maintenance of the National WWI Memorial in DC, the torch to "keep faith with America's WWI veterans" is being taken up by the Foundation, which created a new DBA (Doing Business As) name: “The Doughboy Foundation”.
