U.S. World War One Centennial Commission. World War One remains America’s forgotten war, even though more Americans gave their lives during that war than during Korea and Vietnam combined, and even though it profoundly shaped the rest of “the American century.”
The WW1 Centennial Commission is tasked with honoring and commemorating the centennial of WWI – but perhaps most importantly with educating Americans about U.S. involvement in the war and the profound effects those events from a century ago have on our daily lives today! You will now receive the latest news and updates straight to your inbox.
