Going to Kansas City?

On April 6th the national observance of America’s entry into the First World War will be held at the National World War I Museum and Memorial in Kansas City.  This should be no little affair.

Rather than repeat much of the news, here are two links.  First, the story as reported by the Kansas City Starhttp://www.kansascity.com/news/local/article131323354.html

And the official announcement by the National Centennial Commission:  http://www.worldwar1centennial.org/1874?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery
