Virginia's WWI Centennial Homepage

Over 100,000 Virginians served in World War I; over 4,000 died from disease, combat, and training accidents. In advance of the 2017 centennial of the United States' entry into the war the Virginia World War I Centennial Committee is planning events and commemorations to honor the efforts and sacrifices of soldiers and citizens on the homefront. In the menus on the left you will find links to commemorative events in the Commonwealth and sites in Virginia which embody or present the history of WWI. Please contact us if you are hosting events or sites in your community. Visit the Virginia WWI and WWII Commission website.
