We have done it together
The centennial of WWI has provided the opportunity to give long-overdue recognition to America’s 4.7 million sons and daughters who served in the Great War. Those women and men served with the same valor and courage as the veterans of later wars, and the nation’s sacrifice was great—204,000 Americans returned home wounded and 116,516 did not come home at all.
We are proud and excited that at last with the opening of the Memorial to the public on April 17, 2021, we are at last honoring the heroism and sacrifice of the Americans who served with the creation of the National World War I Memorial in Washington.
This animation above is of the final concept as approved by the U.S.Commission of Fine Arts on September 19, 2019 and the National Capital Planning Commission on Oct. 3, 2019.
This video salutes all those whose dedication, sweat and toil went into manifesting this tribute to our Doughboys and all those who served in the name of Liberty and Freedom just over a century ago.
Opened on April 16, 2021
