If you’re planning a trip to the nation’s capitol this summer here are a couple of new WW1 exhibits that you might want to check out.  Followers of this blog are familiar with my previous posts about the American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC); they have a new exhibit at the Arlington National Cemetery.

Also the US Army’s museum at Ft. George G. Meade in Maryland has rolled out a WW1 exhibit that features some interesting artifacts, including a Mark VIII tank, one of only three left in the world. Click here for details.
