World War I Centennial Resources

This July, the presidents of the United States and of France are in Paris, together honoring the Americans who served in “The Great War,” which today we call World War I. A Bastille Day parade features the branches of the U.S. Military. “Every American can play a role and honor these World War I heroes. We invite you to visit ww1cc.org/Memorial for information on how to get involved with the efforts of the U.S. World War One Centennial Commission,” said Chris Isleib, Director of Public Affairs. Here are some related resources from NCSS.
