100c 100m wwi centennial plaque As the centennial of the Versailles Treaty ending WWI was rapidly approaching, the Arizona World War I Memorial, which honors the state’s fallen heroes, needed restoration. Since its dedication in 1969, it has been repeatedly vandalized and marred by disrepair. Arizona Veterans Hall of Fame Society members, beginning with Terry Araman and David Lucier, actively raised awareness and advocated for a restoration plan. Ahead of the November 11, 2018 centennial, the people of Arizona answered the call and donated the funds needed to replace the missing bronze emblem of the Veterans of World War I of the U.S.A.
